Hi girls, i know its been aaages since i was meant to have posted my second holiday post....see, you'd forgotten hadnt you?! Well the main reason my posts are so infrequent at the moment is that my internet 'dongle' is near to useless, my patience is wearing very thin with it these days, i cant WAIT to get broadband, but for now i'll have to put up with what ive got, it just means my posts will be very light on photos.....i managed to add a couple of images from holiday to show you what id purchased but no seaside(y)shots im afraid.

One of my favourite places in the world is Lyme Regis, we had a wonderful day on this occasion, squeezed ourselved onto the tiny bit of sandy beach they have there. Sunbathed, read the paper then went for an ice cream and mooched aound the antique place on the seafront. I was a bit disappointed because i didnt get anything there-it was all a bit 'oldy worldy' and not really our sort of oldy worldy. It was all a bit musty and nothing caught my eye, though Poppy bought a lovely ammonite fossil which she's already taken into show and tell for her class.
I love the shop Fuego, its crammed with allsorts of goodies, ranging from cheap(i like), to expensive(i dont like), for example the small jan constantine hanging hearts-a mere snip at thirty pounds each alongside bracelets for a pound! I could've bought soooo much, but i was restrained and got a baby pink and baby blue cup as pictured below, they're by the company Rice(which im already a huge fan of, You may remember i managed to get a set of six of the smaller cups like these in the charity shop for a pound)....I havnt used the new ones yet, i dont know what im saving them for-just seem too pretty to use! I also got a set of six ice cream spoons and six teaspoons, again theyre as yet unused! But they look pretty!

I had lots of other photos to show you of places like bridport market and if i ever get a good signal out here(county living isnt all its cracked up to be sometimes!) i'll put a little mosaic together or something. i know most of you have visted these places before anyway so i'd just be telling you what you already know!
Bye for now x

Hi, I know the place and the shop! Great to hear that you've had a good time in Lyme Regis. A couple of years ago we rented a beach chalet on Monmouth Beach at Lyme (the sort that you can live in) for a week. It was wonderful and took me right back to childhood hols by the beach nine million years ago!

I love Lyme Regis, although I haven't been for a couple of years now. Last time I went I remember there was a pretty little shop sort of 'under' a fish restaurant. I remember I loved the opening times on the door which siad 'Open 10 (..ish) to 5(..ish)'! I thought that was a great idea and often thought about using it for Cottontails. No need to worry now though, lol!!

Love Charlotte

Hello Kirsty

I agree with you, it's a wonderful. I love it. I live about 1h20min away from there so we go on day trips at weekends. My first memories of the place is goinf there around the time The French Lieutenant's woman was released at the cinema. I lived in Dorset then.
Must pop in to Fuego, those colourful cups are a must!

Hello - Lyme Regis is lovely we've visited it twice in the past couple of years, but it is such a trek from our side of the coast!

Have a lovely weekend,
