tripski – final part


We had some other nice days, went out for lunch – actually, there’s a story there all by itself

Never go to Pizza Express in Sevenoaks – they were terrible, forgot our order, lied to cover it up and told us it was ‘just in the oven’ but 1/2 hour later it still hadn’t arrived, stuffed up with the deserts and eventually, after nearly 2 hours (yeah, I know, I was ready to blow) we just walked out.  So, Pizza Express – you were terrible, beyond awful and I have no hesitation in not recommending that anyone go there ever, under any circumstances.

And I’m going to tag this post and tweet it too.  Customer service is sometimes about recovering from a stuff-up – and they just made it worse.

Anyways, before I get on my high horse too much, back to the week..

Lunch, days out, fun, etc.

Then we decided to go to Hastings Aquarium with my sister.

Having a 7 seater hire car has some benefits – we could fit them all in one car and go together.  So, after much palaver getting car seats in, we trotted off in gloomy but clearing conditions.

We arrived in Hastings and it was shrouded in the thick sea fog – couldn’t see the tops of the townhouses it was that thick.  There was no way to make out the horizon between ocean and sky.  The aquarium was a bit of a disappointment if truth be told, it was small and didn’t have that much in there, but still, the kids had a good time.  We had lunch (fish and chips, of course) and then went for a walk on the beach

Good times 🙂

Had a nice day the next day, but then I had to take them back home, which was sad as it had been such a lovely week.  I hate to leave them, its horrible.  But, time will fly and I’ll be back in the summer.

    • a lot of beaches in England have pebbles rather than sand, don’t know exactly why that should be. I think the pebbles are flint (from the famous chalk cliffs) which are really hard. Perth is limestone which breaks down into sand really quickly..

      the biggest difference here is the sea and sky are blue, not a uniform grey/brown!
