Middle of winter at 4:47am tomorrow, so technically we’ll be on our way towards summer again, yay! Emphasis on technically, ’cause we all know we’re stuck with the cold, windy drizzle for a while yet. All through the year, basically. Love it. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Here’s a list of things I’d fill my ideal rainy day with! Things not involving Netflix, Netflix and chill, or going outside.
Bake. You don’t want to be leaving the house for snacks when it’s chucking it down. Make your own! Doesn’t have to be anything fancy – these simple scones were soooo good. Make a ‘thing’ of afternoon too, that’s always a good idea come rain or shine.
Make something. In my case, I’d probably knit something, but whatever floats your boat. Everyone needs a hobby they can do mindlessly at home to make productive use of time in front of the TV! I can’t remember being bored because I’d always have a project on the go. You can teach yourself pretty much anything from YouTube – might even uncover a talent or 6. Having a finished product (however basic) at the end of it is so satisfying!
Read a magazine. Really coming out with some groundbreaking stuff tonight aren’t I? I hardly ever buy magazines these days though so it it kind of a novelty. Sometimes it’s nice to flick through actual pages, however die-hard a Pinterest fan you are. Some of the cheaper magazines can actually be pretty good too I’ve found, so no need to splash out a fiver on Vogue for a quick browse!
Make your space feel cosy. Read: light candles. Might as well embrace indoorsyness!
Drink something milky. Ovaltine is my recent discovery and current fave. Once you’ve made your place all inviting all you need is an ultimate warm belly drink.
Consider starting a blog, if you haven’t already. I’d highly recommend it! Don’t bother faffing around choosing a layout and struggling to think of a name for ages, just thrash out a few quick posts in Word to see if you like it. Even if you don’t think you enjoy writing you might be surprised. Send me a link if you do try it!
