Well it may have been the Weymouth Olympics, but Mr Mew and I ventured to the seaside town as a last nod to my parents wonderful harbour view flat. Although it has been a rental property for the passed few years, we have been able to spend a few precious weekends looking over the boats, being awoken by the crazy artist living above us and mew-andering through the town and onto the beach. It is with much sadness that my parents have to sell the flat and it is now that I am realising how much I adored the place.
We also used it as a great excuse to go back to Lyme Regis; a chocolate box seaside town with a steep hill, adorable beach and some fine vintage shops too!
I tell you one thing. You have to praise what the council has done to brighten up the place for the Olympics!
The dress (above) was bought in one of the antique shops and it was a relief to get out of my heavy 40’s jacket and trousers into an original, cool summer dress!
I haven’t painted stones since I was little and I have to say it was wonderfully therapeutic! They were selling some for charity, so I decided to do one too to add to the collection! Very proud of my efforts 🙂
