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.
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?
