5Things I’m Looking Forward to this Spring 2021

Happy first day of spring 2021!

The warmer weather is arriving, the days are getting longer and people are feeling more optimistic about the rest of the year. While spring and summer aren’t really my favourite times of the year, I’ll happily live in winter all year round, there are a few things I’m looking forward to this spring 2021.

1. Easter

Of course, I’m excited for Easter! The extra-long weekend, chocolate eggs and hot cross buns, hopefully, the weather will be good so we can go for some walks too. I’ve bought a bunch of decorations including an Easter tree and wreath which I’m looking forward to putting up this weekend. We also bought some pet-friendly easter eggs from Pets At Home which look adorable and I can’t wait to give them to our little zoo on Easter Sunday.

2. Taking Luna for Walks on the Beach

Soon, travel restrictions will be lifted which means we’ll be able to drive down to Brighton beach, one of our favourite places, and take Luna with us! So far, we’ve only taken her for walks around the block or in our local park. So, it’ll be nice to take her somewhere different. Plus, she seems to have a bit of an obsession with stones and pebbles so we know she’ll love the beach!

3. BBQs

Who doesn’t love a BBQ?! We’ve already had one this year over a sunny weekend in February, but I’m excited to have more. Relaxing in the garden with all the animals, drinking some cocktails in the sun and enjoying good BBQ food. Plus from the end of March, we can enjoy a BBQ with a few other people too which will be good.

4. Seeing my Garden Bloom

We’ve recently spent a lot of time and money doing up our garden. We bought a BBQ and patio furniture along with a ton of plants including trees, flowers, bushes and some trellises for the front of the house that we can grow flowers up. Most of our weekends have been spent gardening lately and it’s all starting to pay off. We have tulips and daffodils brightening up the front and 3 trees in the back garden which are beginning to bloom too. This weekend we’ll be planting some more colourful flowers and I’m excited to see it all come together.

5. Lockdown restrictions easing

Gyms, shops, pub gardens, cafes and hairdressers will all be opening again from April which I’m really excited about. I’ve really struggled during this 3rd lockdown both mentally and physically. I always feel tired and drained and I’ve put on so much weight! Of course, this is completely normal and I’m not alone in this. But, I can’t wait for the gyms to reopen so I can get my motivation and some confidence back. Home workouts, as beneficial as they’ve been, just don’t feel the same. And spending weekends growing shops, getting my hair or my nails down and enjoying a drink or two in a pub garden sounds like pure bliss to me right now. I don’t think any of us will ever take these simple things for granted again.

Those are all the things I’m looking forward to this Spring 2021! Let me know in the comments if there’s anything you’re excited about as we head into the new season.

    OMG Luna is soooo darn cute! And I work for a company with Luna in the title so I’m here for it! (it’s a company called The Luna Cinema). I love Spring so much!
