small sighs

We spent my birthday weekend in sunny Scarborough and this was the view from our hotel bedroom. I left the curtains open at night so I could wake up and see the sea. I took this photo at three o'clock in the morning and as you can see, the sun is already starting to rise. Breathtaking!

This week I have been loving:
 

spending date night eating chocolate fondue

 drooling over my favourite recipe book


 picking self seeded flowers from the garden to brighten my kitchen

eating butternut squash and asparagus risotto

Have a great weekend lovelies. We are planning on painting the shelves for our office and a picnic for two in the park. Have you anything nice planned?

  2. oh my, I'd love to wake up to a view like that! What a fantastic sight. May I ask where you stayed? I used to visit Scarborough a lot as a child as my great aunt and uncle had a holiday home nearby, I'd love to revisit one day.

    This weekend I'm hoping to go on a couple of wildlife events with the wildlife trust and rspb - but one involves an early start and I'm hopeless at mornings so I'll have to see how that goes! Might also visit a couple more well dressings.

    Hope you have a good weekend :)

    1. We stayed in the Clifton hotel which is on the North bay side. It is quite an old hotel and is having renovations done on it but it was perfect for us. We booked a double room and were upgraded to an executive family room with a sea view which was just perfect.

      I love Scarborough and it never changes! Have a lovely weekend Louise. Hope you get to do all you have planned. xx

  4. A beautiful sunrise over the sea, flowers, and risotto - three of my favourite things, and so beautifully photographed, Rachel! Summer Fair at school for me tomorrow, setting up, the event itself, and clearing up - it's going to be a long day... xxx

  6. That view reminds me of the time our car broke down and we were stranded in a random town for a weekend until it could be fixed. The plus side was finding a motel on the lake side - the views and the sunset made up for everything!
