As the weather is getting better, and spring is finally coming, I wanted to compile a list of things I want to do with Oliver this Spring. Now the sun is shining, I feel like we will be able to get out a bit more. I hate spending time inside, and Oliver always seems to be happiest when we are outside. Now we don’t have to worry about taking plenty of layers, hats, gloves and scarves, we can enjoy what Spring has to offer.
Visit the farm
Now Oliver is old enough to enjoy the farm a bit more, I really want to take him to one! Especially as there will be lambs and baby animals, it’s always the best time to visit the farm! We have Fishers Farm and Bockett’s Farm nearby and they are both great to visit.
Get out in the garden
My garden is in much need of some TLC. Over the winter the weeds have taken over and I have plenty of new plants to plant. I want to try and get Oliver involved a little (even though I know it will end up with him eating soil and leaves) I may buy him a little spade so he can try and do some digging as well! Other than gardening, I am hoping to get Oliver a slide for the garden and some other garden toys, so he can have some fun in the sun!
Go on plenty of walks
We often head over to Wisley gardens, and it’s a place I will keep on going to, especially now it’s spring. The spring plants and blossoms will be out in full! Amongst the places I want to visit this spring are Painshill Park, Hatchlands Park and Claremont Landscape Gardens. I have National Trust membership and I have been wanting to visit lots of their properties and make the most of my membership for quite a while now!
Last year I managed a small amount of baking, but with a very little baby, not much was done! Oliver has taken a shining to my KitchenAid so I think he may enjoy watching me bake this year. He loves watch it whirring round. Hot Cross Buns are top of my to bake list, my sister and I made them last year and they were delicious!
I’m not sure what the crafts will be, maybe some handprint chicks or fingerprint blossom trees. All I know is I want to try and do some crafty bits! (I might have gone a bit mad and will regret saying this if and when I do these crafts but ah well!)
So that’s a few of the things I want to get up to this spring. Is there anything you would like to do?
