Happy in Hastings!
Our summer holiday finally came to an end at the weekend. Me and the other half spent an afternoon in Hastings looking at shops old and new. I always like to pop into 'Made In Hastings' where I couldn't resist taking a photo of this cute kitten on a tambourine by artist Claire Fletcher. I also bought a lovely pair of soft and warm socks in preparation for cooler days in my studio!
We'd been looking forward to a very special treat of lunch at 'Hendy's Home Store' and we were not in the least bit disappointed! We both tucked into this delicious sea bass cooked by supremo chef Alastair Hendy. The whole experience was delightful - from wandering through the home store which is full of useful but pleasing to the eye utilitarian household items all arranged beautifully in a setting that takes you back to another time to sharing delicious freshly cooked food .....tucked away at the back of the shop. We're hoping to go back in winter time when they'll have open peat burning fires!
And much later that evening our youngest daughter cooked - a scrumptious Thai green curry for us! (we had to have a small plates because we were still full from our lunch!). What a great day!
