Spring Home Works

It is freezing in Cheshire. We even had some snow the other day, and it doesn’t look like this chill is leaving anytime soon. I am looking forward to spring now. It feels like this winter has gone on for ages; I am badly in need of some warmer weather and some sunshine.

I am always in the mood to do some spring cleaning during the spring season. Guess there is something about the weather that makes me want to move things around in the house.

Here are some things I would love to get done around the house this spring.


Do some garden work

Our garden has been abandoned pretty much for the whole of winter. I have hardly stepped into it because of the extreme cold. So we plan to make up for that this spring. We have a few garden work to carry out, and I hope we get them all done this year. If we had an unlimited budget, I would love to get an extension with some quality aluminium roof lanterns to extend our ground space. An extension would open up our ground floor space and I can imagine what I would do with that sort of space right now.


Install some blackout blinds

I would love to get some blackout blinds installed in time for spring/summer, in addition to our curtains. They would beautify the rooms, adding a bit more character to them. I have a few designs in mind already, thanks to Pinterest, and I can’t wait to get started.



Decluttering our entire house is on my to-do list. We have so much junk I need to get rid of, and I have started listing preloved items on eBay already. I like to declutter every 3 months. With the kids growing so quickly, there always clothes to get rid of. Plus, our shed is bursting with items that are badly in need of a new home.


Update some decor

Updating our decor is high on my to-do list as well. I am looking to update some of our decor in some of the rooms. I know we need a clock and some cushions for sure. And I am looking to get some more character to the rooms, so will be on the lookout for some quirky decorations.


Bathroom upgrade

The bathtub needs some work done. A part needs replacing and we need to get some wall tiles done too. I am hoping we make a head start on this work sometime this spring and hopefully finish up before the end of summer.


Do you have any spring home works planned?

  1. That’s a decent spring list. I empathise with the garden in particular – ours has gotten more an more messy in December and January and there’s much to do when it warms!

  2. You have inspired me to get out there and do some positive things this spring. I really need to declutter and minimize things in the house. I will be starting on this right away.

  3. So that’s what our target is as well, to work out the garden again, as it has really been ignored. Thanks for inspiring me to declutter, mostly the clothing and toys!

  4. These are some great things that you have on your list for Spring. We are already half way through summer and I kid you not, I am in dire need of cooler months, the temperatures have been soaring here, making my long for autumn/winter. 😀

  5. I’m kind of happy that I don’t have an actual house. There would be a whole lot of work every spring I assume. I’m going do some general cleaning and decluttering in our apartment at some less busy point. 🙂

  6. I feel like we have the exact to do list. I’ve been wanting to do a major declutter of my house because we seriously need to let go of unnecessary stuff. Here’s to getting our list done!

  7. Great tips! Thanks for sharing. Always love to experience different seasons. We only have 2 in the Philippines. Anyhow, some of the activities are great ideas. Would love to get blackout blinds too!


  8. I cannot wait for spring… it is my favorite season. Yes, I need to declutter my closet … it is a hot mess and I will also be doing some redecorating. Just made a friend that loves interior decorating as I cannot for the life of me do that (all I have to do is figure out the budget and she’ll do the rest). I am looking to collaborate with other bloggers as well just havent gotten the vision for it yet. Cheers lady!

  9. I love spring, its my favorite season for the year. I truly can’t wait for spring cleaning either, I love working on or upgrading my bathroom especially.

  10. Spring cleaning. And buy a shredder because I carry around old papers that I won’t throw away for 1000 different (but all dumb) reasons that they are going to turn into antiques. The unimportant ones (like umm a lease from forever ago) need to goooo so I can clear up space. I started the other day and was thinking wow where did all this space come from?!

  11. I love Spring and enjoy Spring cleaning as well. The sad part is, I have 2 pets and they shed a lot of hair. I find myself removing pet hairs spread around my house.

    Do you have pets? If so, how do you tackle the pet hairs?
