This just in – autumn has arrived here in London! After a long and gruelling battle, I am proud and relieved to announce that I finally won the Great Heating Battle of 2012 ie the right to turn the heating on before October (does anyone else have to fight with their significant other to get the heat turned on? I guess men don’t feel the cold so easily)? Anyways, summer is firmly over so I will be posting as much summer content as possible to hang on to the memories… including plenty of beach houses! This particular beach house in Sussex may not be located on a powder sand, azure water, tropical paradise but it makes up for that with oodles of character and charm. As much as I would love to spend a balmy summers day lazing on the deck, I could equally see myself hunkering down in front of the fireplace with a thick mist outside and the sound of the sea in the background.
