When it comes to being bored on a rainy day, you may think it’s the kids who are the ones who need entertaining, but adults get bored too! Sadly, it’s just something we never grow out of; we just learn to hide it better than the children, that’s all! So if you can’t get out and about exploring our gorgeous city of Exeter because of the weather, what can you do? Thankfully there are plenty of indoor ideas to see you through.
Baking is a great way to while away the time on a grey, dull day. Many recipes only call for a handful of staple ingredients, so it’s likely that you’ll already have everything you need. Download some recipes from the internet, check out that recipe book that you’ve had sitting on a shelf for ages and not yet used, or just make something up. Even if the results aren’t quite what you had hoped for, they’ll probably be edible at least!
If you’re at home with friends or family, then a rainy day is the perfect excuse to get those old board games out and have a championship competition. Monopoly, Scrabble, Cluedo, and all the other long lost favourites can be huge amounts of fun when you remember how to play them.
If you’re on your own and board games don’t appeal then don’t forget your smartphone. You can download countless gaming apps on it and play to your heart’s content. Alternatively, you can go to an online slot game site such as www.slotsmobile.co.uk to enjoy some thrilling fun and potential wins.
Plan A Holiday
When the weather is terrible, and you’re stuck at home, your mind may well start to wander towards warmer climes, golden, sandy beaches, and cocktails on the balcony as the sun goes down. Or perhaps you’d prefer an adventure holiday kayaking through canyons and abseiling down cliff faces. Whatever your ideal holiday is, now is the time to plan it. Make a list of all the places you’d like to go or all the things you’d like to do and use the power of the internet to make an itinerary. You’ll get prices and timings plus a fair few extra ideas on places to go and things to see. If you’re feeling particularly daring, or you’ve been thinking about it for a while now, you might even go ahead and book it.
If you keep telling yourself that you’ll put this movie, that film or these box sets on your ‘to be watched’ list but never actually get around to watching any of them, why not use a rainy indoor day as your perfect excuse? Snuggle up on the sofa, or in bed if you really want to be cosy, with a bowl of popcorn and something to drink and hit play. If you’re not enjoying something after the first 10 or 15 minutes, it’s time to move onto the next! Life’s too short for boring films. Yes, this might be a somewhat lazy thing to do, but it’s also huge fun, and it doesn’t happen all that often, so enjoy!
