We travelled down to Worthing today late morning on Saturday. The reason? Back in October, we went to a Charity-do for Foster Carers, something that Sharon’s involved with. Our table won the ‘we-come-round-to-yours-and-cook-a-full-meal’ prize. As it turned out, it was Sharon who was offering the prize and so we booked a night’s stop-over at Edwardian Dreams Guest House and at around 7.15 the mini-bus picked us up to take us around to Ian and Sharon’s for the meal.
The journey got off to a bad start – the exit for the M25 was closed, so we had to head for Worthing via the A21 towards Hastings! It took ages!
We stopped off at Polegate Services for a quick bite to eat at ‘Table-Table’- a chain we had not heard of – around 2pm. We arrived in Worthing at 3. We did a little shopping and then headed for the Guest House.
Overall the journey took ages! considering we left at 9.30!
We checked into our room – room 3 – and decided to have a snooze before getting ready. Were were up at 5.45 and started to get ready for our gourmet meal. The mini-bus arrived slightly early at 7.10 and by 7.20 we were at Ian and Sharon’s chatting with our co-diners – Diana, Pete, Julia and Ian. Sharon and Lesley were chefs for the evening.
The meal was superb! Salmon and Prawn with a chili dip for starters. This was followed by Pork and Prunes with seasonal vegetables..then three desserts..then a full cheese-board! It5 was all accompanied by more wine than you could shake a cork-screw at.
We had a great time. The mini-bus arrived around 11pm and we were tucked-up in bed by 11.45. A very enjoyable day!!
We’ll have our normal ‘full-English’ at the Guest House tomorrow morning and then head for home.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
