Well it's drawing to a close. I mustn't complain as it's lovely to have a whole fortnight off but I do hate the last day of the holiday feelings. Last night I couldn't sleep. Not because I don't want to go to work or love my job but because I'm a lazy old bones and being at home is easy peasy! So this afternoon we made an effort not to let the last day together slip away too quickly. We headed off to Lyme Regis as we realised we hadn't managed to get there to see the lights before Christmas and I had some new stock to deliver to Caroline.
I love the pretty trees on the shops with decent size lights that show up - take note Dorchester!
And of course Emily Button came with us as she does now.
It was her first trip to the sea and she'd been wrapped up in a borrowed cardigan but still found it a bit nippy.
How she wished she had new snug long socks like smug Mrs Jam...
She admired the houses and dreamt of living in this beautiful blue one.
And then in a flash the peace and tranquility of Emily's first trip to Lyme were dashed. The jammers spotted an amusement arcade.
The lure of the 2p machines beckoned and Emily was led astray. Led into the colourful neon world of gambling only to emerge a short while later with her pretty apron pocket £1 lighter. Poor Emily she's a lot to learn!
After that we thought things couldn't get much worse, so chips it was!
Finally it was dark enough for a look at the lights. Loved the tree!
But prefered it when they used to string loads of bulbs on wires across the street instead of the stars. Maybe I just don't like change!
As we headed back to the car I spotted Caroline had put my favourite Foxy Lady in the window of Ruby Rock Cake.
Now life will take over and posts will go back to being infrequent watch and see!
