We had dinner out yesterday!!!

 Yesterday after work Andrea said we were going out!!  So we set off out....

 On the way we say a happy cat sitting in the window!

 See?  He's smiling!!!

We came to Orsino's!!  Andrea's friend Diane was in town so we met up for dinner!

 There was a new pizza on the menu called a Breakfast Pizza which sounded a little bit weird.  So we decided to try it!!

It had a rasher of bacon, a fried egg, a sausage, mushrooms and a grilled tomato on it.  It was kind of tasty but it doesn't really work as a pizza.  I think we'll go back to the Marinara pizza next time......!!

Mail from Sandy!

We got a postcard from Sandy today!!!  

He went to Whistler and went on a zipline.  He said maybe he should reserve a place for us to use it.  NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Walk Around Town.

 Today was sunny (but with a breeze) so after Andrea did the food shopping, we went for a walk.  The first thing we noticed was that the Texaco petrol station and convenience store has been completely shut down, boarded up and fenced off!!  That's been there for centuries and it's closed down!!

 That's really weird...... it's a missing landmark!

 To get over the shock, we had a walk along the seafront.   You can just see a yellow sticky-uppy crane thing in the distance - apparently they're building a big tower on the front that will have 360 degree views.  

 When Sullivan came to visit a couple of years back, he didn't believe me when I said people lie on the beach on only a towel to sunbathe.  Well, you can just about see them there by the wall with the fencing on!!!  Told you the English were mad as hatters!!!

 The tide was out when we were there, and we had a bit of sand!

 I like watching the sea waves.  I always wave back, too.  I'm a friendly mouse.

When we got here, we decided to walk inland a little....

 We went past this little park....

 We saw some pretty stained glass windows in one of the buildings!

 And then when we got to Palmeira Square, we went that way!

 When we walked past this shop, we noticed it had shut down too.  This used to be a camera repair and film developing shop that had also been around for centuries.... you know, one of those pre-digital camera shops that did repairs and knew about cameras and sold picture frames and photo albums and put old cine film onto DVDVDVD for you.  Gone.  Shut.  Poo.

 And then when we got to Tesco's we noticed their blue line underneath was a rainbow line!!!  I like that!!

 we found another elastic hair tie too.  We'll use that on a postcard.....

Mail from Ajdin!!!

 AND today we also got a letter!!!

 It's from Ajdin!!!  He sent us a mad maze..... you start up the top there.....

 And finish down the bottom there with the cheese and the books!!!

 He sent a letter too!  It's MINE!

 It's an origami one like the ones I do!!!

With a letter in it too!!  I love it!
 And then today we got another postcard!!!

This one's from Jerry and Ben!!

Postcard from Sandy!!!

 We got a postcard yesterday too - from Sandy!!!

He'd gone beachcombing but said he didn't find much.  Not like when we went mudlarking!!

Last night's dinner

Yesterday after work Andrea took all the washing up to the launderette.  While that was being washed, she went to the Farm Shop up the road and got a Sausage Roll (front left), a Scotch Egg (front right) and a Pork Pie (behind) and brought them home for dinner!  We had a salad on the side and it was YUMMERS!!!

I won a prize!!!

 we got a package in the post today - it was all the way from New Zealand!!!

 It was a bookcrossing book!!!  Andrea had entered a sweepstakes on the bookcrossing website and we got drawn as a decoy so the winner didn't know they won until they started getting lots of books!!!
This is a thrillery book!

 They sent us a little card too!!!

I like the picture!!!

 We got the chair last weekend and it just got delivered!!!

We now have the Chair Bear Bunch and it's going to be re-upholstered at some point.  But it's ever so comfy!!!

We did some shopping!!

 We had a box arrive at our house today!

 Brown packing paper!!!  Excellent!  I can use this stuff to make another notebook with!  Fab!

There was also some Kniepp bath oil and bath salts for Andrea too.  That'll keep her quiet....

We found loads more graffitti'd cable boxes recently!!!  First of all, this new kitty one.....

Then a new Christmassy one....

And a new cassette one......

And a new blue Meanie one....!

But he might be a yeti, I'm not sure.....

We found some more grafitti'd cable boxes!! These three are the sides and front of a new alligator

And these two are next to each other and "join up" to make "23"!!

 Well, first post of 2013, and it's the updated grafitti'd cable box collection!  The first three were from my last walk around town in December....... and I've spotted some more new ones since!!

 This is the side shot of the Christmas tree below.....

We found another three grafitti'd cable boxes recently - two more badgers (they used to be the Blue Meanies posted lower down) and another cassette lord!

We spotted five more grafitti'd cable boxes recently, so have now made a point of photographing them!!
We start with a Blue Meanie.

These are special buses called "The Big Lemon" that run out to the University.  They work on cooking oil instead of petrol!!!

Another Blue Meanie.... They painted this over the Dino Rox Box.  George is Very Upset.

This one's the newest, I think.  It's a Lemur!!

 This one has a portrait on it!!!

 And this one is a snowman!!!!!  And he doesn't melt in the sun either!!!

 The side had a happy christmas message on it!!

 I think this one's my favourite!!!  We see this one from the bus when we go to work!!!

I think they made this one specially for George and Dilly!!!

 Numbers as well....

This lady was found in near Churchill Square on July 22nd 2012

 This is a new grafitti box that I walk past on the way to work!!!  Found in Brighton in April 2012

And this one, after the Dino Rox Box, is my favourite!!
