Things I'd like to do this summer

I've been looking forward to being off for Summer since my uni year started back in October. Now that it's here and the weather seems to be picking up, I thought I'd write a list of things I'm hoping to do.

Chester Zoo - I'd love to take Osian to Chester Zoo, he loves animals. He isn't keen on dogs and birds coming close to him, but he loves watching them from a distance, so I think he'd love the Zoo.

Holiday - I really crave a holiday at the moment, I'd love to take Osian abroad, but think I'll wait until at least next year. I'm thinking of going to somewhere in the UK. Maybe just for a couple of nights, but it will be lovely to get away.

Go to the beach - This is not what I'd particularly like to do, I hate the beach, but I'd love to take Osian. We've got a fair amount of beaches to choose from. I can't imagine it being a day trip to the beach, maybe just an hour or so. 

Walk up Snowdon - People come from all over to walk up Snowdon, it's fairly close by to me, and I've never been. It's easy to take things that are on your doorstep for granted, isn't it? I've said for a while I've wanted to go, so will hopefully get the chance this year.

Take Osian on a train - Not to anywhere in particular, I just think he'd love to go on a train. He loves books with trains in them, and going to see the old steams trains that are on display in our local National Trust site.  

Visit Bodafon Farm - Since we enjoyed it so much last year, I'd love to go again. This time Osian can run about and play. If he enjoys it, he can try and go back a few times, since it's free to get in.

Find new places to explore - I love finding new places where it's safe for Osian to just run about freely, we have a few places we already go, but it's always great finding new ones.

Hopefully we'll be able to do most, if not all of the things listed. I'll probably think of lots more things I'd like to do, or think Osian would like to do, I'll have to write them down, my memory isn't very reliable these days. Can I still use the excuse of having a baby brain!? 


  1. That is one very impressive to-do list! I hope Osian gets to tick all of it before summer is done x

  2. I hope you manage everything, the zoo sounds especially fun! We've got the train up snowdon and if was great, I couldn't imagine walking haha - that would kill 2 birds with one stone too haha xx

  3. Good luck! I hope you get to do everything you want to over the summer....Lovely ideas x

  4. What a great list. Mine love the train, that's one you have to try and do. I bet he'll love it!

  5. What a fab list - Chester Zoo is on my list (has been for month argh!) I can't wait to go =)

  6. What a fab list. I have been on a train and loved it! And the beach too. I hope you get to do it all. Ickle Pickle x

  7. What a great list. Osian will love all of that. Beach, train and zoo will be the favourites, I think. Love the photo-what a great expression! Oh, and baby brain is a perfectly reasonable excuse, I still use it and will do until the children are 18, then I will blame old age ;-)

  8. Great my list! I love the summer. I too would love ta walk up snowdon #justanotherlinky xx

  9. I hope you manage to do the things you want to, but I am sure even if you don't just spending time together in the summer weather will be perfect. I have a few places I want to visit with my two over summer too

  10. We are going to chester zoo next week! I am dreading the car ride to Chester though, but it will be worth it!
    We should do most of these through Summer together! :) We will plan days out.

    Thank you so much for linking up with #justanotherlinky Hope too see you again Sunday. xxx
