We drove down to Worthing to spend the day with Ian and Sharon. On the way there, we took a slight detour via Brighton to locate the premises of a new client, where I'm doing some work in a few weeks' time.
We got to theirs just after 10 and after a quick coffee or two and a chat made our way to Lansing College where there was a craft fair.
There was quite a range of stalls, varying from table lamps at 300 quid each (eeek!) to pick-n-mix fudge at 2.50 (Guess where I stopped and shopped!!). Afterwards, we stopped for a cream-tea and discussed where to eat tonight. That was an easy decision for us to take - we're going back to 'The World's End' Pub/Restaurant where we've eaten before - famous for its ice-creams.
We then headed off to Shoreham Airport for a quick snack. The place was busy and it looked warm enough to sit outside. A BIG mistake!!! as we slowly froze to death waiting for our club-sandwiches to turn-up. On the plus-side, it was good to be so close to the aircraft taking-off and landing.
After thawing-out a bit, we jumped back in Ian's car and headed back to theirs. After taking the smart route of using the back-streets around Worthing to miss out the heavy coast traffic, we were soon back at Ian and Sharon's. We jumped in the Fiesta and headed back to the B and B, Edwardian Dreams. Time to put our feet-up until 7pm, when we'll be heading out again with Ian and Sharon for the evening meal.
As expected, The World's End was busy, even though we got there quite early. The food was great and the service was too! Our waitress seemed to have a pretty good memory - she never wrote anything down, but remembered all of our individual orders correctly (apart from the 'two shandys' that arrived as 'two lagers'). After desserts and coffee, Sharon was looking tired so, we paid the bill and they dropped us off around 9.45 at the B and B - dirty stop-outs!
It's been great seeing them both again - we're back again in October for a longer stay. We're leaving straight after breakfast tomorrow.
