Wet weekend.

Cold grey skies, pouring rain, wet pavements. This was not our ideal way to spend Saturday in Lewes. But getting past the crappy British weather and ridiculous parking restrictions we did enjoy this pretty town in between downpours. Don't think I'm grumbling too much. I did have fun with my freshly washed hair pasted flat to my head, whilst the rain soaked through my sheepskin boots into my socks. We had a delicious lunch and got some inspiration from the lovely interiors stores there. Sunday was better, we recreated our favorite honeymoon breakfast. I often wonder why we persist on "having days out". You have to laugh sometimes at the British battling all weathers just so they can get out of the house. We have had just about enough, and may have finally taken the hint. Its just so unpredictable here. I am going to start having little holidays at home each weekend. Might save some money that way too?!

Hmmm, crappy weather in Romania too, but there's no way you can spend your time out, there's no interesting place to go in this little town. Only...Lobster and Swan, he he ;)

Hi

I found your blog a few months ago and I must say that, since then, I check it every day! Thank you for being so inspiring! Here, in Portugal, we still have a (almost)summer weather. The sun shines like always, but I do miss Autumm colors... I won´t be participating in Sofia Autumm swap, this time, but will not miss the next one! :)

Your breakfast looks sooo good. I want that hot chocolate. It's true sometimes there is nothing like staying at home, although perhaps it's all the better for having been away from it.

Maybe it's partly that part of Sussex, I have only been to Brighton once when I didn't get soaked through!

please sir said...

I hope the weather gets better for you!

That breakfast looks amazing! I was working near Lewes over the summer and I really like it there - it has some great little shops and a really nice atmosphere.

Lobster and swan said...

Nice houses too!

Katherine was your work interesting?

Lewes is really lovely, and there are so many good little shops there, will definitely go back once the sun returns : )

Lobster and swan said...

ps Thanks for all the breakfast love. The husband was lovin it too : )

Katherine said...

Yes, lovely houses! Pricey though... no cheaper than T. Wells really. Shame!

I was working in the tailoring dept at Glyndebourne Opera House - very interesting, very intense, very exhausting!

Lobster and swan said...

sounds exciting and intense in a good way?

Having a "holiday at home" weekend sounds like the most delightful weekend plan of all! Definitely do pursue it... And tell us all about it! ;-)

Oh L&S, it has been much, much too long since I've had a chance to comment but I've been keeping up...really!

We battle the same weather here in the NW US but what can one do? Um, buy a plane ticket to your house and have YOU make breakfast...that's what! That photo is phenomenal, m'dear! You are exceptionally multi-talented aren't you?

Just lovely and the "at home holidays" seem especially nice at your home. :)
