Enjoy life now this is not a rehearsal.
Actually, this angle is better
day 12 - this evening was the work Christmas meal! Lewes Christmas lights are looking gorgeous. The food was ok the worst meal was the beef but you win some you lose some. I got to wear my sparky playsuit again and we had a blast doing the quiz!! 💕🤶🏼🎅🏼🎄😋
It’s been a gloriously sunny day here in Lewes. Perfect weather for heading out and sampling a little Harvey’s in one of our *many* fantastic pubs. Here’s the #GardenersArms
just down Cliffe High Street. A 5 minute walk from the apartment and full of great ales ☺️ #englishpubs #thisislewes

Tonight, and every Wednesday night, all of our entrees are just $15! New this season, give head chef Jim’s buttermilk brined and oak smoked BBQ Yard Bird a try - served hot with turkey smoked collared greens and mashed potatoes. Just one of ten new entrees on our menu this winter.
King Henry VIII
To six wives he was wedded.
One died, one survived,
Two divorced, two beheaded... Anne of Cleves was the fourth wife, she gave him no children, they were married for barely half a year, and most surprising of all, she outlived not only the other queens, but also the king himself.
According to the legend Henry wanted to see what his potential bride looked like and sent a famous Tudor painter to accurately paint a portrait of her. He was enchanted with this German princess’s portrait and a marriage treaty between Henry VIII and Anne of Cleves was signed in 1539.
But when Henry first met Anne in Rochester he was apparently disappointed with her appearance. He quickly had the marriage annulled and Anne was smart enough to go along with this without putting up a fight.
It seems that Henry VIII was very grateful to Anne for agreeing to the annulment of their marriage. She was given a number of properties and a favoured position in court as King’s Beloved Sister. Historians have suggested that Anne and Henry became good friends.
Anne was granted this atmospheric 15th-century house in Lewes as a part of her divorce settlement. Ironically despite the house bearing her name, she never lived there but collected the rent until her death.
Charming Anne of Cleves‘ house is an excellent example of a late medieval timber-framed building and displays authentically furnished rooms and its garden uses traditional plants.
