Summer To-Do List

Looking outside right now I have to admit, it doesn't exactly feel like Summer but in my head we are very nearly there so I wanted to put together a list of things I'd like to do on those gloriously sunny days. I like doing this every year, as a reminder really so we don't forget anything, they don't always end up on here but I think I'll start making them a regular thing.

1.Have beach day, a whole day of sun sea and sand.

2. Raspberry picking. I did this last Summer and they were the best raspberries I've ever tasted so this year I want to go and get so much more, plus I'd take raspberries over strawberries any day. I've planned a few recipes for them already, homemade ice-cream for a start...well, it is Summer after all.

3. Picnics, as many as we can fit in. I love all kinds, from the simple sandwich and bag of crisps to the over the top elaborate baskets full of treats.

4. Have our first BBQ's at home, and obviously make some kick-ass burgers.

5.  A Summer road trip! I don't think I've seen enough of this beautiful country we live in, and we've been chatting about a weekend away here or there. Then we thought "a road trip"! Why not, we would get to see so much more than we would travelling by train or plane and it would all be on our own time. Some exciting planning ahead!

6. Visit some of the near by seaside towns, and always end the days with fish and chips and ice-cream of course.

7. Master a few recipes I've been wanting to try from my favourite cookbooks.

8. Paint all the garden furniture. My mum gave it to us when we moved in last year and it had been sitting in her garage for a long time so as you can imagine, it's in need of some love! I wan't to get it all painted and looking lovely so we have somewhere to sit outside when people come round.



  1. I've never picked berries but it sounds so fun, I bet they taste amazing! The summer has been cool so far but I'm hoping it's getting a lot warmer now :) x

    1. You should give it a go this summer, I think strawberries start at the end of June and raspberries late July. They taste so much better than any from the supermarket and are so much cheaper -bonus! I'm hoping for that too, looking forward to some lovely hot days :)

  2. Sounds like the perfect Summer list, I want to do it all too! Just need the weather now :)
