This is Seatown, which is a beautiful little bit of Dorset.  This week I met up with friends and we walked from Chideock a short step down to the beach.  It was a beautiful day - in fact a perfect day.  The Anchor at Seatown has recently had a make over, and vast amounts of money have been spent enhancing the sitting area outside and more.  We spent a lovely few hours in the sunshine, watching people in the sea, and on the beach.  It was lovely.  This picture is how the pub was before the revamp, you will have to visit to see what it looks like now.

Introducing Russ

Well, was there life before Russ?  He has been with us now 3 weeks and is definitely part of the family...  his toys litter the place, but that's not enough.  He steals everyone's shoes, bites the flower heads, digs the garden, chases the hens, stands up to the gander.  Bit afraid of fishermen... but then.  He has about 10 minutes of complete naughtiness, then crashes out for a sleep.  Totally adorable - but with sharp teeth...

Mid May

Well, what a busy time we all have had!  Have just finished a First Aid course - which was very informative and fun.  Today, I have been to Lyme on a History Walk.  It was so good!  Lyme is absolutely packed full of interest - the Civil War, the Monmouth Rebellion.  It had its fair share of buccaneers, rebels and smugglers, as well as our famous lady - Mary Anning.  The tide was out and it was really hot and sunny.  I shall be back shortly to check out Lyme's Museum.

Bridport Rugby Tour

Its been a quiet weekend - insofar as the boys have gone off to the Isle of Wight on a rugby tour.  Bridport lost - but someone has to.  I have been left, manning the fort.  Had delightful guests who have been down to Charmouth fossicking.  I think they had quite a success, as requested breakfast at 7.30am and then went back again!  I am  picking my time to dash down and feed the geese - as we keep having April showers; but all in all, with the beautiful blossoms its been very nice.

Golden Cap

I have been rambling lyrically about walking from Charmouth, across Stonebarrow, down to St Gabriels chapel ruins then up to Golden Cap.  Somewhere in the depths of hyperspace my little blog has disappeared.  But just to say a lovely spring walk in Dorset along part of the Jurassic Coast can be the cure for all ills.  Nothing better than a time for reflection, a collection of thoughts and a fantastic view!

End of March

We have had a real frost this morning - and this winter there have been very few!  I had to rush out last night and cover the seedlings in the greenhouse - there are a few left that the mice have neglected....  Well, after more years than I care to own up to I have finally completed my patchwork quilt.  Thousands of stitches, on a prayer at the end as of the navy blue I had 2 patches left over....  Once I have done a little more hand sewing it will reside on our bed!  Now I must get on with the kitchen curtains - then what?

My Birthday!

I just wish to share with the few that view this blog that today is my birthday.  I don't think I have ever had such a warm, sunny spring day for a birthday - or been to the beach where it is crowded with families lying and playing in the sun.  My youngest son took us to The Hive Beach Cafe at Burton Bradstock where we had an excellent lunch - cooked by my eldest!  I also had lots of flowers, and other gifts.  Feeling very blessed now!
