After Splashdown, on the run up to Easter, we were in great need of a rest! So we went down to Hastings over the Easter weekend to stay with my (Katie’s) mum and dad. We took the scenic route and sent via Bexhill, where we visited the recently (not that recently!) refurbished museum. I enjoyed the wedding dresses throughout history, and Stuart lived the motor cars! Sadly photography wasn’t allowed, but there was a really rather interesting collection of squid, snakes etc in jars of formaldehyde, presumably a remnant from the Victorians!
On Saturday we ventured to Battle for a trip to Yeaterday’s World, which I had thrilling memories of. The visit as an adult was… Less than thrilling, it was interesting, for sure, and it is enlightening about daily life during the wars, for instance. But mostly it seemed a lot more exciting when I was seven!
Sunday, of course, was Easter, so we enjoyed celebrating the greatest day in history, when Jesus rose from th dead, defeating death and destroying sun, so that neither of them can have a permanent hold on us if we identify with him! Hooray! (Seriously)
Mon day saw us ambling back to Haywards Heath, muttering about work the next day, but also soaking up some sunshine! Yes, that’s right! We stopped off in the beautiful village of Alfriston on the way home for a mini picnic, an ice cream and a lovely walk.
