Bank Holiday Weekend with Ian and Sharon – Arundel

Another fine day down here and we’re going to make the most of it and drive over to Arundel. Shops first, then the Castle!

Arundel Castle 
But not before we visited our fave posh ‘greasy spoon’ here: The Moat house in the town centre, and enjoyed a full-English brekky!!! Then it was a mooch round the shops, a short coffee-break by the river before Ian and Sharon departed, leaving us to do the Castle. The whole area was packed – not surprising really, as it was another scorcher of a day just like the last time we were here in 2007.

Coach and Horses Worthing
After a quick snooze in the afternoon, it was time to get ready for the evening. Ian and Sharon picked us up and we headed off to the Coach and Horses in Worthinga traditional 18th century coaching inn (according to their web-site). We met up with Pete and Diana, (and Diana’s Mum), Simon and Cori and Duncan and Claire there and we all got on really well. We were on the end with Duncan and Claire and that gave us to also talk about our respective businesses. We also discovered that Ann and Claire had gone to the same school – and lived almost in the same street as kids! Small world!!!!

We didn’t stay that late and Ian and and Sharon dropped us back at the Premier inn around 10pm

It’s been a great weekend – the weather’s been just perfect and it’s always great fun with Ian and Sharon. We’re leaving super-early tomorrow, in order to get back, do a few things around the house and get prepared for work the next day.

10.30: Off to bed then....
