Things To Do On A Rainy Day

Sunday, 2 August 2015
We Scots are not having a good summer. In all, I think we've had about a week of sunny weather. It's been cold, it's rained, it's thundered. In actual fact, if  it snowed tomorrow I wouldn't be surprised. So gone are the summer plans of summer picnics and idyllic dog walks(which lets face it, were never going to happen anyway on accounts of my dog's inability to behave). Honestly? Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons anyway so I've been enjoying the chance to stay indoors and indulge in a little me time. A rainy day is not the end of the world. You can make it what you like. This is just a little list of things that you can do on a rainy day if you're feeling bored and unproductive. I tried to make this list a mixture of things that are fun and self pampering and boring but necessary. Personally I find things like organising my food cupboards a lot of fun but I know not everyone will feel the same way!

  • Curl up with a new book.
  • Marathon a series you love on Netflix.
  • Have a clear out of your closet and throw away any clothes that don't fit you any more or that you haven't worn in ages.
  • Make sure your about me page on your blog is up to date and accurate. This is usually the first place that new readers will click on your blog! 
  • Phone a relative for a chat. 
  • Have a bubble bath.
  • Organise the food in your cupboards. Set out things that will go out of date soon and see if you can use them up soon. 
  • Paint your nails.
  • Brainstorm blog post ideas.
  • Tackle your inbox. 
  • Do the chores you've been meaning to do all week.
  • Try out a new craft.
  • Brave the rain and go to a museum.
  • Look through your BlogLovin' feed and comment on your favourite blog posts.
  • Take everything out of your fridge, wipe it down and chuck out anything that's off.
  • Dance in the kitchen to your favourite songs. 
  • Head out and go for a swim.
  • Polish your leather shoes(it's boring but trust me they'll look a lot better).
  • Light some candles. 
  • Write a blog roll and share the love to your fellow bloggers.
  • Hoover the whole house/flat.
  • Do a quick work out and feel better afterwards.
  • Take a long shower and have a real pamper.
  • Leave a nice comment on every photo on your Instagram feed.
  • Watch your favourite movie.
  • Leave the windows open and listen to the sound of the rain.

What sort of things do you love to do during a rainy spell?
