The clocks are going forward this weekend (finally) which means that Spring is on its way!
We might be losing an hour of sleep but that is the only negative because there are more than enough of things to look forward to, starting with:
- Lighter nights and longer days
This is probably one of the most obvious but we've survived winter - it's all up from here! You've probably noticed it has gradually started getting lighter and we'll probably all agree it is a lot easier to get up in a morning when it isn't pitch black outside.
Time for a well-deserved break for a few weeks after a pretty hectic term of deadlines and exams. Not only that but time to indulge in Easter eggs and plenty of other Easter treats whilst putting your feet up and watching your favourite shows/films - you've earned it!
- Lent is nearly over...
Whatever you have decided to give up for the last 40 days and nights, you're very nearly able to indulge again. Unless you've realised you don't need it as much as you thought. Well, how much do you really need sweets and crisps anyway?
- Time to put the parka away
You've probably spent the last few months wrapped up in endless layers but seen as temperatures are picking up a bit, you can put your big coat away and mix up your wardrobe a bit. Bring back your pastel colours too because surely you've had enough of wearing black by now...
- Start of the BBQ season
Seen as the weather is getting better, dare we say you can pull out the BBQ when you have a weekend free? Invite some friends around or save it for when you go back to your hometown. Either way, always prepare yourself for needing to rush inside for shelter - it is England after all!
- Cheaper fruit & veg
Speaking of food - you might not know which fruit and vegetables are in season in Spring but you need to because they're usually cheaper. Look out for offers on asparagus, spinach, watercress, radishes, cauliflower and spring onions to save yourself some cash and make some delicious meals.
- Avengers: Infinity War
If you're into Marvel, this is going to HUGE and is something you cannot miss! Watch the trailer to prepare you for the amazing things that are going to happen but think Iron Man, Spiderman, Captain American, Hulk and the rest of the gang.
- 13 Reasons Why is back
The Netflix Original series that got everyone talking (and left us on a major cliffhanger) back in April 2017 is back for a second series. Set your reminders for 30th March so that you don't miss out before your Twitter timeline spoils it for you.
