So it may be snowy in a lot of places today and minus degrees, but when I did a poll on Twitter 54% of you said you wanted a Spring to-do list so that’s what I’m here with today. Spring is one of my favourite seasons as it means the flowers start blooming, the days get longer, and the sun hopefully comes out and the temperature warms up, but today’s post is all about some of the things I want to get done this Spring.
HAVE A PICNIC IN THE PARK
As soon as the weather starts getting a bit warmer Luke and I like to have bbq’s but I would love to go for a picnic and just enjoy the flowers in the park and the sunshine. Taking a blanket, a portable speaker and some snacks a picnic in the park with the people you love sounds perfect to me. Last year we had a lovely picnic in the park in the common with some friends which was so much fun.
GO TO AN OUTDOOR LIDO
When I was younger we always used to go to Aldershot Lido, I say always, probably more like once a year, but I loved it. An outdoor swimming pool with slides chilling in the sun sounds divine, and is the best attempt I’ll likely have at going to a waterpark in the UK without travelling too far.
GO FOR A BIKE RIDE
This is something I keep meaning to do but as we don’t actually have bicycles it’s a little trickier. I know you can hire them in the New Forest so I’d love to do this and cycle around the pretty scenery. Plus, with longer days and hopefully warmer temperatures, it sounds like the perfect time to add it to my Spring to-do list.
LOOK AT NEW FOREST WEDDING VENUES
So, I don’t talk about our wedding plans too often as we’re not getting married anytime soon and need to save, but we are starting to look at venues and think about costs. We saw an amazing venue in Bournemouth last year, but I’d love to have a look at the ones in the New Forest. They do this thing where all the venues in a particular area take part in an open day weekend so you can travel between a variety of venues in one area, and I’d love to do this in the New Forest. We have an idea what we want but I think this would be a great idea to get an even better idea.
ACTUALLY FINISH 2016 OF MY PROJECT LIFE & PRINT MORE PHOTOS
Yes, this may have meant to have been finished last year and I only have two months left but it’s currently just sitting there, annoying me. I haven’t done a single page since the New Year’s started and I really want to get started on last years and this years’, but until I’ve finished with 2016 I can’t start this. Once I’ve got this completed I want to get a load of photos finished from last year, and maybe a few from this year so far so I can get going.
BOOK OUR SUMMER HOLIDAY
We always book our holidays quite late, and even though we’re saving, we like to travel, so a Summer holiday is something that was always going to happen. We’re thinking of Greece or Spain, somewhere at the cheaper end of the Spectrum but that will be sunny and has a beach. We probably won’t do this until the very end as we’re planning on going away at the end of June, beginning of July, but I would love to have this booked by the end of Spring.
VISIT TWO NEW PLACES IN THE UK
I’ve mentioned before that we’re trying to be a lot cheaper with everything this year as we have a lot to save for so one of my goals is to explore more of the UK. We will already be doing this when we go away for a couple of nights for my birthday in Oxford but I would love to explore another new place too, whether it’s a day trip or a night away.
CARRY ON EMAILING MORE BRANDS
This is something I mentioned in my February to-do list and I’m quite happy with the number of emails I have sent, and I would definitely like to continue doing this. I’ve mentioned previously that’s it’s a great way to build relationships and this is something I believe is really important in the blogging world. As I said people may not reply, but it lets them know you’re about and you’ll never know otherwise, so why not?
MAKE MORE TIME TO READ
This was another one I mentioned last month, well, this lasted for two days… Oops. I definitely want to start doing it more regularly, if not daily before bed, so this is something I would like to actually do throughout Spring and will be making more of an effort to do so.
What’s on your Spring to-do list? Is there anything else I should have added?
