Thanks for the pootle this morning. Another delightful post!! Can't wait for tomorrow… and the new ripple blanket reveal?

I always adore your trips to Dorset.. it really sounds divine! I got a huge kick out of the little boats planted with flowers. I have a cute little dinghy from my days of living on a houseboat and it's just leaning against a wall in our barn - and I have wanted to fill it with soil and plant flowers in it for years.. but I'd have to drill holes in the bottom and it's still a sound little boat so I haven't done it. Yes, we're off to our lake trip.. I am looking forward to the peace and quiet up there.. no electricity, internet or TV.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

What a lovely post Lucy! My three boys are similar ages to your little people so I can totally relate to the dynamics. I like holidays as it does mean they spend more time together and get back that playfulness.

Lovely pics, Lucy! The snails look pearlescent - like their shells are made of abalone. Beautiful! So glad you were able to have a restful visit before another rush to prepare for Yarndale. Hugs from afar!

Love your pootling in Dorset blog, me thinks I ought to visit the cafe on the beach in West Bay...not to far to travel I live in Wimborne Dorset, no excuse!!


Oooooh I'm pootling around Cornwall this very week. Totally love it. Great pics. Xx

Another fabulous, sweet, beautiful post!!! Thank you for this wonderful trip across the pond for me, just the perfect tonic for a day spent in 10+ meetings...my brain is fried! But, this delightful post of pootling along with you has lifted my weary spirits!!
You are such a treasure! Indeed, I'll be back tomorrow for the next installment, I can hardly wait! Sweet dreams...
Hugs and love to you!


Such a lovely post as always Lucy. I don't often comment but read every one of your posts with relish and particularly love reading about your family holidays.

Oh I have bookmarked this cafe for a trip to we are going to season in a couple of weeks, would love to hear where else you recommend ! Lovely part of the country !


Lovely photos, Lucy. (We do have those snails in the North, but they aren't as common as the big muddy-coloured ones. Just in case you wanted to know . . .)


I always love your talking us through your day. It's as if we're pootling with you. Lol. Love the pics as well. Enjoy your hols. :) xx

Lucy, how I love your wonderful meanderings, I could smell the sea,even though my house is full of the wonderful aroma of rich fruit cake, the bottom tier of our Grand-daughter's wedding cake. :) x


Ahh, lovely!!
