Summer '16

Thursday, June 23, 2016


With spring behind us I'm hoping for less rain, more sun, and some warm weathered adventures.

Here's my list of ten things to do in summer '16.

1. Visit three different beaches in Suffolk - Felixstowe, Aldeburgh, Southwold

2. Try three new ice cream flavours

3. Go on a picnic

4. Visit a maize maze - Kezzie the Southwold maze opens on July 16th :)

5. Take a trip to Snape Maltings and Marlsford Mill.

6. Forage for and make elderflower cordial / gin (failing that, elderberry gin)

7. Go to an outdoor movie

8. Pick strawberries / raspberries and eat sun warmed berries whilst still in the field

9. Decorate until my arms fall off

10. Read 5 books - preferably whilst lounging in my hammock in the sunshine.

What do you have planned for the summer months?

  2. These sound like absolutely idyllic summer goals! This will be the first summer in 12 years that I'm not a teacher and hence don't have weeks off to look forward to (although as I used to spend most of that time working and/or stressing, I'm less upset that I could be!)

    1. I know some of the teachers I know see the summer holiday as bitter sweet. At least you can take a holiday when you want to now, and you're doing something you enjoy a lot more.

  5. Such great goals. I'm going to make myself a list so that I don't get to the end of the summer and wonder where it went.

    1. I don't always tick everything off but writing a list does push me in the right direction :)

  6. The maze one is a brilliant idea - I haven't been to a maze since I was a kid and they're so much fun! I'll have to make sure I try and do something similar while the weather stays sunny. Great list here Hazel, I love the outdoor film and hunting for elderflower berries for cordial too. - Tasha

  8. I love your summer to do list. I think I amy have to make my own. I haven't picked strawberries for years, perhaps that will be on my list too.

    1. I'll never forget my brother filling the pockets of his tracksuit trousers with strawberries, by the time we'd driven home he basically just had pockets full of jam!

  9. Those sound like wonderfully summery goals and - weather permitting - pretty achievable.
    Its our busiest time of year with back to back festivals for the next couple of months, I'll be hard pressed to do much more than read one book! xxx
