Hello there! Grab a cuppa and join me on my tea break.
I have to admit that today's tea break is a happy affair as I'm drinking from my NEW mug (see my last post for news of my newly discovered pottery love ♥). What is it about new things? This mug just feels GREAT and drinking tea from it is making me deliriously happy. Weird, huh?

I'm thinking about my road trip from the weekend and want to show you some shots of the non-beachy/non-pottery (!) scenes in Sussex. It really is a beautiful place.
We stopped off in the village of Alfriston which is well worth a visit. It is full of character with cute-sy shops, art galleries, old fashioned pubs and tearooms. Need I convince you more?

The boys were flagging after being dragged into various gift shops and art galleries and then my friend and I saw them looking out of the window before running out of the art gallery and down the street.
What could they possibly have seen?????
A vintage car show was in full swing on the village green! The boys were like kids in a sweet shop!
Of course, we couldn't leave for the beach without having a cream tea could we?
I could certainly manage a few of those scones right now!
Well, I'd better get back to my crochet. This blankie has turned out to be a bit of a beast, a HUGE undertaking and it is taking me F O R E V E R. Maybe I was a little ambitious with making a king-sized bed cover?! A few stripes back I almost considered sticking with a stripy scarf but I mustered up some enthusiasm from somewhere to Keep At It. Has anyone else felt like that at the 1/3 of the way point??? I've signed up to a one-a-day project here to motivate me to complete the striped beast! I'm aiming to do 1 stripe (or at least 1/2 stripe) every day.
Wish me luck!!!
