Our Spring Bucket List

Well you may not know it from the grey skies out there but spring has now officially sprung here in the UK, and we can only hope that sunnier days are around the corner!
Don't get me wrong, I do love winter...infact it's probably my favourite time of year as I'm really not a fan of hot weather or all the insects and stingy flying creatures that summer brings, but I do hate it when it starts to get less about Christmas cheer and hopes of snowy days and warm snuggly jumpers and more about constant greyness, endless drizzle and damp and weather that's not quite cold enough for big jumpers but not warm enough for short sleeves!
I'd say that's the stage we're at here at the moment, and so I've been looking ahead and hoping for some brighter days and making plans for things to do this spring to keep us all entertained...I have a little spring bucket list going on of things I'd like to do with the children this year.

I've also been thinking about items I'd love to add to my wardrobe this year too, I'm a big fan of maxi dresses as you can probably tell from my spring fashion mood board below and House Of Fraser always has so many beautiful ones in stock!! I will definitely be treating myself to a few of these this year.

  1. Such great ideas of things to do this spring. I can't wait for my boyfriend to pass his driving test so we can take Ben out and about more! He's only had one lesson so far so roll on next year! Haha! I love maxi dresses too, those ones look gorgeous. I cannnot wait for it to be more Spring like and warm up a bit more, still sitting here in my Winter jumpers!
