28-Aug-12 Two eggs please!

In Blog, Personal on August 28, 2012 at 6:12 am

Sorry for the gap since my last blog, but what a busy weekend I’ve just enjoyed! Here are some of the highlights.

I know I’ve raved about it previously, but the Ancestry application for my iPod and iPad is brilliant! Although it could have been made a little easier if I paid them for their census and other services, I have been able to populate large chunks of my tree quickly and efficiently. If anyone of my family is interested, let me know, as I can send you an email invite to view it?

On Monday, we got the opportunity to eat at Bill’s Kitchen in Lewes near Brighton. For those who are not familiar with this small chain of restaurants, I would thoroughly recommend them.

It’s the first time I have eat there and I have to say that it’s probably the best dining out Breakfast experience I have ever had. For those interested, I had two fried eggs and ham served on bubble and squeak mustard mash with a hollandaise source. Lovely!

How good was this breakfast venue! Now where is Bill?

We also got the opportunity to do a 3 mile trek around Devil’s Dyke following a walk documented on the AA web site. With two pubs en-route and the most amazing view from the South Downs, I would recommend this route to anyone who has a couple of hours to kill one weekend in Brighton.

The last time I went across this terrain was on my bike en route to Brighton from London. Although on foot this time, it was a much better experience, but don’t be fooled if you think a 3 mile trek is easy. Certainly the wooden steps to climb the steepest section made our hearts beat a tad faster than normal.

What a view! Now where’s that pub?

As if Monday was not busy enough, we also went to the oldest picture house in Britain, which is called the Duke Of York’s in Brighton. For those who are not familiar with the term picture house, this is an old cinema!

We were lucky to get tickets for the afternoon showing of ‘The Imposter’, which, although was not quite what we expected, was a fascinating and rather disturbing true story.

Established in 1910, the picture house is an incredible venue and certainly was a throw back to my youth (not that I am that old). It’s recently been refurbished and visiting was an event in itself.

What a experience. Is that the Joker on the roof?
