Whether you’re just rearranging the cupboards, sorting out the tool shed or venturing into the attic to dust off the old record collection, the bank holiday is the perfect time to find new and innovative ways to store and organise all the things laying around the home. With a few simple steps, the amount of extra space that you can create might just astound you.
GET TO KNOW YOUR LOCAL WILDLIFE
Lockdown has seen sound and air pollution levels hit a new low for recent years so now is the perfect time to spend those precious hours in the garden and getting to know your local wildlife. You’d be amazed at the stunning array of creatures that can be found in your local area from a plethora of wild birds to foxes, rabbits and hedgehogs.
TRY SOMETHING NEW
With all the extra time at hand, the bank holiday is the perfect time to give something brand new a try and teach yourself a skill you’d been putting off. Whether you’re taking the first steps to master the art of mixology with a cocktail mixing set, getting your fingers green in the garden potting shed or adding an array of beautiful colours into the home by creating your own beautiful flower arrangements. Whatever you choose to do, there’s never been a more perfect time to get stuck in and give it a go.
GET LOST IN A BOOK
We're all guilty of buying books and never finding the time to read them, so why not spend some extra time this bank holiday in the sunshine basking in the sunshine with a cup of tea and that book you’ve been aching to read but couldn’t find the time for. Whether it’s a gripping novel, captivating autobiography or a piece of fascinating non-fiction, there’s nothing that beats a good book in the garden while the birds tweet peacefully in the background.
While we’re not able to enjoy eating out at the moment, there’s no reason we can’t bring a luxurious dining experience home with us. Whether you’re enjoying a sunny afternoon picnic in the garden with the family, indulging yourself with a stay-home cocktail party or treating yourself and a loved one to a romantic alfresco meal for two, spending more time at home doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a five star dining experience.
