Sandgate is really nice right now, I hope all these new business can last. As well as Comemos and the Inn Doors there's some new dog themed cafe and a seamstress and of course the pizza place that we haven't tried yet. I suppose all the new flats that will be popping up along the front will help support these businesses.
We tried to walk back one row back from the sea front, I've never been up there before. The boys were not keen to break the routine though. They like to scoot back on the front as far as Brewers Hill and then go up there "the secret way" to Hospital Hill and then home.
A minor blow-out in Waterstones for the boys. Feels like we ought to buy more books in proper shops rather than just on Amazon. You however should buy them from Amazon so I earn a tiny commission... we bought:
☠ Magic Treehouse - Lions on the Loose
☠ Magic Treehouse - Amazon Adventure
☠ Who Let The Gods Out?
☠ The Crooked Sixpence
☠ The World Of Norm - May Contain Nuts
Two of those books were slightly more expensive than online, one was the same but two were actually a pound cheaper in Waterstones so we're about even.
I did not know the old Waterstones had gone from Canterbury, so all action has moved to Rose Lane (Whitefriars).
We also went in Hotel Chocolat and Body Shop and bought a gift for Clare's niece. A very successful day.
I got off the bus early at Folkestone and walked back, I'm well stepped up.
Miserable for the smallest boy today too he really didn't want to go to nursery. I think generally he'd rather stay home and watch TV, but wouldn't we all... I'm not sure he's getting much out of nursery, but Clare is right he only has six months more to learn how to do group activities, sit nicely, etc before SCHOOL!
Had a nice Sunday, did housework and the DIY assemblage of the new IKEA purchases, which also involved dismantling of the old bed frame (stashed it in the loft for now) and taking the old mattress and the packaging and so on to the tip. Then a trip down town, a little light shopping, a hair cut and a long walk back in the wind. Yet again when I passed at about 4pm the Inn Doors was not open. I guess they know when it's worth their while to open. Or, they saw me coming and quickly locked up.
Fabulous fajitas and robot wars last night. Actually a more disappointing episode of robot wars, just not up to the first two episodes. Good to see an impressive newcomer in Concussion, shame to see Thor go out again.
