Did you all see that amazing moon last night? It was so big and bright! Unfortunately I managed to permanently delete the really good picture I took with the moon across the water but this one through the window gives you a good idea.
Harvey and I have not felt tip top today. We have both been feeling a little quesey and very lethargic so we both slept a lot. I had a small bowl of muesli, yogurt and berries to see if that helped but it didn’t. Then we both slept until about 2pm. The weather was quite extreme today. Thick black clouds rolled along to replace the bright sunshine. Then there was thunder, lightening and torrential rain. I would like my view back please!
By about 3 pm we both wanted something to eat so we went out and one of the first places we walked past was Aroma Coffee Shop. The coffee was excellent (except for the fact I really dislike drinking coffee out of a glass) and Harvey enjoyed his juice. We both had a soup but I really didn’t like mine. Harvey’s was really good though and I think I was just unlucky. I liked the vibe in this little independent coffee shop and would try it again when I felt better.
It was sunny when we came out. These import and export regulations from 1489 are posted on the wall next to the museum. We fancied some cake and headed over to our favourite place, the Town Mill Bakery. We usually go there for breakfast and occasionally lunch but never before afternoon tea. Look at the size of those cakes !!!!! I had the smallest one there which was a walnut and vanilla and it was worth every naughty calorie.In the afternoon we had some more visitors to our apartment.
Everyone is drawn to the window seat. This is my lovely niece Charlotte. The boys understood their place 🙂 Abi and I set off on a walk round Lyme Regis with Charlotte, Harry and Harvey. We had a cheeky beer in the Harbour Inn while the children entertained themselves in the Amusement Arcade and we then strolled round the harbour and along the Cobb. It was very windy on top of The Cobb wall so we walked along the lower level. We turned back at this point as the waves were beginning to crash over the wall here, due to the unusually high tides. This is such a beautiful part of the world, a place to sit and stare. I quite fancy trying one of these trips if we have time. Much as I love my younger nieces and nephew, it was fun to be with just the older ones. We all had dinner together at my sister Lucy’s. Shepherd’s pie, jacket potato with tuna and an avocado and tomato salad. I did have seconds of shepherd’s pie. More cake! While we had been enjoying the afternoon sunshine and the harbour, Max and Olivia had been busy making Harry a birthday cake and it was delicious. A triumph in fact of light vanilla sponge cake with fudgey chocolate icing and lots of sweets. Just how a birthday cake should be.
I just couldn’t resist – I have got a lot of extra dieting to do when I get home!
