Phew what a scorcher!

We had an absolutely fab weekend! On Friday night we cycled into town to watch the fireworks off the end of the pier. It is Worthing Lions Festival this weekend, and Worthing really rocks! This firework display was truly magnificent! It went on for about 20 minutes, and the prom and beach were packed with onlookers. What a great atmosphere!

The weekend continues with a huge market all along the prom on Saturday afternoon and evening, then a free concert in Steyne Gardens (this year Bucks Fizz and a tribute to earth, Wind and Fire!). Unfortunatley we have never been to the concert. Must make a note to go next year! We were invited out to a friends' 25th wedding anniversary celebration over at Southwick. It was a great setting- a little Spanish restuarant on Shoreham Harbour. The view is a little industrial with the power staion as a back drop, but we were at the yacht marina, and surrounded by boats! Unfortunately my photos are not good! It was great to catch up with old friends that we hadn't seen for a long time. They are part of a group we met when I was expecting Nicholas. We were in the same NCT antenatal class! It's 20 years ago!!!!!!

ON Sunday, Steyne Gardens is filled with classic American cars. It was busier than ever this year. I love taking pics of these outrageous cars! This one is an Impala (Or is it Impreza, I can't remember!)

Our favourites are the Mustangs, There must have been about a dozen of them. We especially liked this red one with the cream leather interior!

Bit of a Styarsky and Hutch thing going on here, don't you think?

What about the colour of this one?

They are all in such good condition, look at the shine on this one! They have such fantastic lines, and are huge!

After seeing the cars, we went to see Mum and dad. Dad has had bad news, in that the treatment hasn't worked. Unfortunately, there is no more treatment available. I am relieved in a way. Getting him to London twice a week was such a strain on all of us, and we watched him getting iller and iller. Maybe he will get a few months respite from feeling so ill now he is not taking the chemo. We sat in their garden, and Maurice made them laugh with his tales of work and his trip last week to Rome! I guess we are in for pretty difficult times. But at least we are a strong family unit and will be able to support each other.
