Sea grape perhaps

Small jelly-like blob c2.5cm long. Seemed to haev the remains of a 'holdfast' at the left handend. When gently squeezed a small jet of water came out.
Found by a three year old - great eyes!
Didn't realise the white blobs were tiny barnacles until picture was downloaded - might compromise the ID?

this is...

...a sea squirt , as we get Molgula round here it doesn't look like this (colour and exhalant siphon wrong). I think more likely Ascidiella aspersa. Can you detail the texture and size at all?
