It's only been a week since I posted yet it feels like longer. A break away to the seaside has been wonderfully restorative - I can't wait to share the details and photos with you soon. For now here's a taster. A view of Thursday's sunrise taken on Hunt Cliff at Saltburn by the sea, half way along the Cleveland Way coast path. After taking a few photos I sat on the headland and stopped. I sipped crisp chilled air as gentle gilt sunlight broke a carpet of billowing sea mist. The majestic call of kittiwake gulls echoed my excitement. Together we heralded in the morning. It was awesome, magical and timeless. I hope these happy links will restore and inspire you a little this weekend.
- I've enjoyed reading physical books this summer but now I have my dad's old Kindle maybe I should use it more. The Whimsy Bookworm has some good pro Kindle arguments. Monday Moods: 10 Reasons Why You Need A Kindle.
- Holidays can be a trigger for me to spend more money. Here's some sound advice to shop less from Intentionally Simple 10 Ways to Change Consumption Habits.
- I'm currently trying to use my cookbooks more often rather than use the internet for recipes and I don't need any more cookbooks but Anna Jones' books interest me a lot. Anna is author of The Modern Way To Eat and The Modern Way To Cook, worked for Jamie Oliver and is a huge fan of Nigel Slater and Sarah Britten (My New Roots). I like her attitude to eating well and cooking good food for real life. I enjoyed this video interview with her over on The Pool.
- You know I'm a fan of Michelle and Frank from London Minimalists but if you haven't checked them out already read this, Minimalist travelling - it worked! I'm looking forward to reading about Michelle's minimalist wardrobe as it progresses.
- Finally if you have three minutes to spare I enjoyed listening to Chris' Pause For Thought on Radio 2 on Friday. "We are more than economics", says Richard Coles and I agree.
With these enjoy the rest of the weekend xo
