Life's important things

I meant to put this up a while ago, but with all the stress and mess of moving to a new address, it slipped through.

I had a rather pleasant afternoon and evening a couple of weeks back with one of my favourite writers from this site, who was passing through my town. We started with a trip out to a country pub called 'The Fox Revived', where we sampled a rather nice small brewery product called 'Shere Drop while sitting out on a lovely evening looking towards those very hills, and then, after disposing sensibly of the hire car we adjourned to The Old Six Bells, as featured in several of the Sussex Border Stories, which is right next door to the real-life church that became Simon the vicar's St Nick's. We drank TEA (not tea) in their beer garden next to the Mole, and then looked at the church yard and lych gate.

A gentle walk back through Horley took us to a local curry house (the place I had wanted to go to in Charlwood has closed) where spicy food was consumed, writing and other stuff discussed and the world put to rights.

All in all a very pleasant and civilised evening! A pleasure to put a face to a name and to be able to show them around the real world that lies under my books.
