We’ve been in England a week now.. enjoying being at our grandparents….
Enjoying their garden….

I particularly like the bumblebee lying asleep in bed! Alfie found him and was sad he had died, so decided to ‘save’ him…

The use of the beautiful flowers in the garden was also fabulous…

Note the mealworm! Most commonly used for the feeding of the birds… 🙂
We’ve also been enjoying local attractions, such as rolling down the grassy hill, known as ‘the mound’ (of which the historical meaning is unclear)…

….and exploring the ‘Lewes Priory’, ruins of the first Priory built in the United Kingdom, back in 1081….

We’ve tried scooting in a skate park (thanks to Patu buying the kids some second hand scooters at the Sunday market!)…

…and have even taken a stroll in the local graveyard…! Having been born and bred in this little town I actually knew some of the people buried here – the kids found this bizarre yet interesting. Maya found it a little sad. I told the children it was a nice way to remember our dead…
