It’s official, Spring is here. The weather is starting to improve, the nights are getting lighter and everyone seems that little bit happier.
I love it when the seasons change. The transition from one season to another seems to awaken something in me and I feel like I’ve been given a fresh start.
So what am I planning to do with my fresh start in the coming weeks.
I’m not one of those people who feels the need to blitz the house every spring, as I try to keep on top of my cleaning. Unfortunately my windows appear to have been a little neglected of late and the recent increase in sun highlights every single fingerprint left by my darling children. When the nights are darker or this sun doesn’t shine as much I can close the curtains and forget about them, but once spring arrives I know I need to make more of an effort.
Decor Switch Up
When the seasons change, I like to try and switch up my lounge decor a little. I usually switch out my cushion covers, add a couple of new ornaments and seasonal candle. I’m hoping to get some new curtains too as my current ones are a bit dark for Spring.
I may also add a nice vase of fresh flowers such as daffodils to hep brighten the place up.
Get Out More
When it’s grey and overcast I love nothing more than to snuggle up on the sofa with something to read and a warm drink. Now it’s getting brighter (and warmer) I like to take my reading outside with a nice chilled drink.
Spring is also a fantastic time to take a family trip to the local farm to see the new arrivals. Or just get play outside in the garden or at the park.
Spring weather in the UK can be a bit of a mixed bag. However it is safe to say that I will probably pack away some of my thick winter woollies in favour of some more appropriate clothes.
I will also use this time to review which of my clothes I need to get rid of and what gaps need to be filled.
Switch Up Your Meals
I don’t know about you, but all the comfort foods I love to eat in the colder months don’t seem quite as nice as the temperatures begin to rise. I much prefer lighter meals such as pasta and salad so I will be updating my meal plans to include more appropriate foods.
So there are my plans over the coming weeks. What about you? Do you have anything you want to do now that Spring is here?
Thanks for reading, until next time
