Taking the kids to a quiet garden is never a good idea if we didn’t get much sleep so I didn’t want to be there for very long. The plan was to have a walk, go to the toilets and grab a sandwich then leave before they can make too big an impact on the place.
In 2017 Ben was away for my birthday WEEK. It was summer holidays and I didn’t want to be at home on my own with the children, so to cheer myself up I took them on a little holiday to Kent and Sussex. It is my ‘hood so I know all the best places to visit, and with a newborn baby I wanted to go somewhere that was easy and familiar.
I love Hastings. It’s where I lived for the first seven years of my life, so there are lots of things to do in the area that I have done several times before. This time we wanted to do something different and what better than the thing that “1066 Country” is famous for – Battle Abbey and Battlefield.
