The Brighton food fight
When me, my husband, my sister Mel, and her other half Simon, came down here for the day in June 2002, we decided to have dinner in the restaurant on the Palace Pier. The service was deplorable, and we even had to ask for the `free` bread and butter that came with the fish and chips! it wasn`t even butter the cheapskates, it was cheap old tasteless margarine!!
Anyway, we`re sat there eating our fish and chips and drinking our cups of tea, when Simon said something silly to me, I can't even remember what it was now? I picked up one of the slices of bread and butter and laughingly threw it at him, it missed him and hit my sister on the arm, she didn't look very amused, I don't think Chris was either? LOL. Simon threw a slice back, it went on my hair and then down my black trousers, it looked just like a cumstain! Simon bent down to pick the bit up that had hit my sister, as it had fallen to the floor, I didn`t even think about what I was doing and I just slapped him straight in the side of the face with another piece of bread and marge! He got up and the triangle of bread was still stuck to his face! I couldn`t stop laughing, the people on the next table to us was pissing themselves laughing too! Simon wiped away the margarine saying that one side of his face would get the sun better than the other one now.
I often think of this little episode to myself and then can't stop laughing.
Sitting on the promenade café, having a cup of tea is so much fun, especially when you see the Traffic Wardens vigilantly patrolling the sea front road and catching the tight b@stards that park on the double yellow lines.
There are they actually two wardens at once, one starts one end, and the other starts at the other end. Then they deftly go in for the kill! They write their tickets, stick them on the cars, and then photograph each one. That's so that the people can't say that there wasn't a ticket there I suppose?
So I thought it would be fun photographing the ladies in action, and I bet "Oh balls!" or words to that effect, is what the unsuspecting public say when they find their parking tickets!. Serves them jollywell right for parking where they shouldn't is what I say! hahahaha.
money money money!
compared with abroad, condoms can be a bit pricey here so bring your own. bring change (as in money in coin form) for using buses as a lot of bus drivers do not like to change note money. Also very useful for car park paying machines which do tend to eat notes without giving change.
Well folks, this inauspicious...
Well folks, this inauspicious looking field is actually the scene of a pivotal point in British history. This field is the site of The Battle Of Hastings and it's not actually in Hastings, it's in a small town nearby called Battle. (Guess how the town got it's name :-))
On this site King Harold got one in the eye from William of Normady in the last successful invasion of British soil. The year was 1066.
