April To Do List

I had hoped to have my April To Do List post up much earlier in the week, but a killer migraine struck me down Tuesday night and rendered me essentially useless for forty eight hours, so I’ve been playing catch up since. I didn’t want to miss this post all together though, they’re one of my favourites to put together + look back on! April is set to be a big month for Con and I, it’s looking like the renovations on our new place will be done in a couple of weeks time, so we’ll hopefully be moving in this month! I’ve been busying myself picking out tiles + planning kitchens, but now I get to move on to the really fun stuff, like buying cushions and coffee tables! Still hoping to sneak in a few other things this month though, so without any further ado, here’s a list of happy little tasks to add to your to do list this month.

  1. Get baking! We’re having a tea party tomorrow to celebrate my little sister’s twenty-first birthday, and I’m going to make mini pancake skewers, which I’m so excited about! I also think this needs to finally be the year I make Creme Egg Brownies, I’m always eyeballing Helen’s recipe with heart eyes.
  2. Visit the farm shop. We had our first barbecue of the year on Mother’s Day and my passion for grilled meat has reawakened itself. We have a gorgeous local farm shop that stocks delicious cheeses, meats + fruit and veg, and I’m excited to stock our new kitchen up with fresh + tasty treats.
  3. Walk in the rain. Last year Con and I went for a forest walk on a rainy, dismal Sunday, and it was so much fun! You know what they say about April showers bringing May flowers…get your wet weather gear on and get outside.
  4. Order myself a fresh bunch of blooms from Bloom and Wild. My gal Tami kindly sent me some fresh flowers from Bloom and Wild back in February, and despite having sent them myself a bunch of times, it was the first time I’d ever received any! I fell head over heels for their gorgeous bouquets + how long they last, so I’m excited to treat myself to a bunch when we move into our new place.
  5. Get Spring cleaning. With an imminent move on the horizon, I’m desperate to sort out, get rid, and Marie Kondo my possessions. Nothing like a big life change to inspire you to clear out the stuff you don’t need any more. Perhaps there’ll be a blog sale on the horizon? Watch this space!
  6. Make the perfect Spring salad. I’m craving salads + veggies right now, and picturing a big ol’ bowl full of quinoa, avocado, roasted asparagus with a drizzle of chilli oil, grilled chicken breasts + lots of leafy greens!
  7. Take photos in a gorgeous English Country Garden. I’m hoping for a sunny Sunday to visit Arundel Castle, it’s been on my to visit list for the longest time, and these bright April days seem like the perfect opportunity.
  8. Refresh my swimwear wardrobe. I’ve got the same ratty bikini collection I’ve had since I was sixteen, and with a trip to Portugal on the cards for June, I’m thinking it’s time to treat myself to something new. Whilst I don’t think my budget will stretch to the Seafolly Swimsuit of my dreams, I’m quite fond of this ASOS Mermaid inspired one!

What’s on your April To Do List?
