Fresh starts with spring equinox.

fresh starts with the spring equinox It’s been a long time coming for us all to actually have spring arrive at our doors. There’s still snow on the ground and a lack of warmth but I can’t wait for this season to fully bloom. This morning we found our first daffodil fully grown but withered from the cold at the same time. Just that small hint of sunshine and the start of flowers in the garden has gotten me excited. This spring I want to be able to do more things in and out of the house for myself and with Immy.

I wanted to take time out today just to talk to you. This season always makes such a difference in my moods and I think it’s genuinely just down to the days being brighter and longer. As I’m typing I’m actually sitting in our dining room which has been off limits since we moved in due to the cold from the kitchen. It’s actually refreshing to be able to sit at a table rather than on the sofa bundled in 5 blankets with the fire on.

We’re very slowly doing our big spring clean in the house, getting rid of all the rubbish we’ve been hoarding since we moved in. Trying to declutter as much as possible because let’s face it, with an almost two year old, any and everything is a toy and the house gets messy within 5 minutes. I mean like a tornado just blown threw up inside your house sorta messy. It’s chaos. And as a self confessed hoarder, well it’s taking a bit longer than I hoped.

I’m looking forward to going on walks with Imogen, taking her to the park a few times a week rather than the chanced five minutes. Going on our local field with her little football and actually playing outdoors. We’ve been so cooped up this winter and I just can’t wait to take her out and explore without worrying about her getting freezing cold.

Speaking of the cold, I for one, I’m not sure about you can not wait until I can leave the house without a million and one layers of clothing. Manchester isn’t the warmest place in the UK and it’s certainly tempermetal for it’s change in forecast. Bring on the days of just one jacket!

One of the things I want to be able to do with Imogen is to try a bit of gardening with her this summer. I used to grow a lot of strawberries back at my mums house and I think it would be lovely to be able to plant something with her and watch it grow. Just something simple such as cress. Keep an eye out on the blog as I will be sharing activities to do with toddlers this Spring! 

Is there anything you’re looking forward to doing this season?

    I can’t wait for the warmer weather to appear. It’s been absolutely freezing the past couple of days and I’m bored of it! Ha. I’m glad you’ve got so many ideas planned for your little one. Are you going to do an egg hunt with her this Easter? x

      I know it’s so cold at the moment, but here it’s mainly the wind! I can’t wait for brighter days but at least the light will be longer tomorrow! I think we’re going to give it a go this year, she’s obsessed with eggs and will shout every time we go in supermarket so I bet she’d love it! X
