|Swans, even though its the mouth of the river.|
Dear reader, on Saturday Mr Him and I traversed Sussex by Mutton taxi (yes I was driving) to Littlehampton to see Mr Him's mother (MIL) and aunt. Littlehampton is very much like a little Hamptons (in our dreams.) I did a blog for you last year on our annual day out with MIL here.
As for this trip, we met at a restaurant facing the mouth of the river Arun. The details of what I ate are here. Let's leave the food side of it at that. The least said the better given my diet situation.
We had been sitting for not ten minutes before another family came and sat at the table next to us. This charming lady immediately adopted MIL and it was reciprocated I might add. MIL moved across the bench and sat with them. It had something to do with bonding over wearing similar Next T shirts (same design different colour.)
The family assured us she wasn't being a nuisance so we left her there, until food arrived, and more wine arrived for MIL and her sister. The family left after their main course. 'We're going to have dessert elsewhere,' they said. Followed by a quick reassurance that they were joking.
After lunch we took a look at the harbour. MIL had an ice cream. I browsed the seaside shops.
MiL bought us a little wind chime which is now in our bathroom.
We dropped them at her house in Mutton Taxi and then headed home.
It was a pleasant day out.
