Finally the warmer weather is on it’s way, the wellies and winter coats are in the back of the cupboard and the spring macs and denim jackets are making their first hopeful apprearances!
It’ time to consider making preparations for your long awaited sunny afternoons to come on the not too distant future – here are a few things to consider…
BUY A NEW BIKE
One of the best ways to get out and enjoy the sunshine, take in some fresh air and get some exercise while having great fun, is to get out on a bike – you can take them anywhere and travel as far as you like, go with as many people as you like and catch up with chit-chat along the way. Check out these deals on cheap bikes – great prices on bikes for him, for her and even the kids – you could get kitted out with your cycling helmets and a bike lock while you’re at it – and there’s a sale on right now – check out the bike racks too – this will give you loads more options if there’s a country park, reservoir, nature reserve local to you, you could sling the bikes on the back if the car and take your pic of destination.
INVEST IN A PICNIC KIT
There are a few options here but it’s an essential item for visits to the park with the kids (they always need a snack).
You could go for the super cute, vintage wicker basket, or a more practical backpack style – a better option if the kids are younger and want carried everywhere. These have cups, plates and cutlery all tidied away in their own little compartment – so all you need to do is pop some food and drinks in and you’re ready to go.
TIDY UP THE GARDEN
The weather we’ve had over the last few months has done the grass no favours so pick up some weed and feed, then have a look at treating yourself to some new garden furniture and maybe some garden storage – and brighten the place up with some plants.
IF YOU’RE CONSIDERING DIETING – BE REALISTIC!
The summer is just around the corner and you’re probably planning your summer holiday – if you want to shift a few pounds do it sensibly and be kind to yourself.
TREAT YOURSELF TO NEW SANDALS
Treat your feet! Buy some beautiful, bright sandals, get a few pairs and get a pedicure!
Away you go and enjoy your summer – Don’t forget your shades and suncream!
