On Friday bf and I made a impromptu visit to Lewes, I had planned to go sometime this holiday but I was thinking we should go later in August. Anyway Friday was as good a day as any and the weather was beautiful. This was the first time we’ve been to Lewes, it’s a lovely town and in some part very scenic. The town is quite hilly so when you’re high up you’ll find some beautiful views of the countryside and South Downs.
I have heard great things about Lewes, hence wanting to visit. I mainly wanted to rummage around the vintage & charity shops and to find some nice coffee shops, though I did pop into a few lovely independent stores such as Wickle, Kings Framers and a jewellery shop… I think it was called Silverado?! There were so many vintage shops with lots to see but rather expensive in my opinion. They are lovely places for inspiration though so it wasn’t a waste of time. The charity shops were good, bf got some books and I left behind a cute vintage teapot because I don’t have room to display it at home. 😦
We went to Bill’s for dinner before driving home. We’ve only ever been to the one in Brighton, the Lewes one feels more friendly and spacious but I didn’t see any cakes on display like the one in Brighton!
As it was such a hot day we didn’t order any hot food! I had tuna nicoise salad and bf got a veggie mezze board. I had such a lovely day and it marked the end of bf taking time off whenever he likes to spend it with me in my holidays. 😦 He’s self employed and has just been offered the job he applied for on Wednesday evening, interviewed on Thursday 11.30am and got at 12pm! He is so jammy, as every interview he as ever had he has been successful! I am very proud of him indeed. 🙂
