25 Things To Do On A Rainy Autumn Day

I think it's safe to say that summer is officially over. It's been raining all morning and we have had to put the heating on at home! That's not anything to be sad about though, I find the rain so relaxing and actually enjoy being able to wrap up in jumpers and blankets much more than I enjoy being too hot and not being able to do anything about it. The only bad thing is that it's hard to think of things to do in your free time, because you get used to having BBQ's, sunbathing, etc. Here are 25 ideas of things that you can do on a rainy, cold autumn day.

1. Bake gingerbread men
2. Get your Autumn / Winter candles out & light them
3. Make homemade soup - my favourite is courgette!
4. Watch old home movies
5. Start a new book or re-read your childhood favourite
6. Have a really long, warm bubble bath
7. Clear out your wardrobe
8. Bake a chocolate cake
9. Listen to music, find a new band or artist
10. Visit the library
11. Make an Autumn pinterest board
12. Paint your nails
13. Catch up on youtube videos
14. Read or write blog posts
15. Start a new TV show on netflix
16. Buy ready made cup cakes just to decorate them
17. Try a new face mask - maybe a home made one
18. Go food shopping or do an online food shop
19. Try a tutorial from a photoshop magazine
20. Find a new phone background
21. Print out & organise old photographs - fill an album or scrap book
22. Empty and organise your bag
23. Buy some new PJ's & wear them all day
24. Look through your cook books and try a new recipe
25. Self educate - research something you want to know more about and make notes

Hopefully you will find some down time to do a few of these things this Autumn. It's so important to have time to yourself, especially this time of year when everything is so stressful (starting back at college etc).
