3. … then make a plan for how you can make them happen!

7. Visit an elderly relative and have a catch up over tea and cake!

Which of these will YOU try? COMMENT BELOW with your favourite feelgood things to do!


  1. Is that your daughter in the top left hand picture? After I had coffee with you, me and my mum were talking about how pretty she is- and how much she looks like you :) xx

  2. Great ideas! I might try some out before I have to go back to school again! Number 5 and 9 are my favourites! I love baking and swimming! :D

  3. One thing I know for sure is that I'll NEVER EVER be able to do number 19, not ever!!! The internet is like my life; I just can't live without it!!!! :-)

  4. It might also be an idea to start making sure you have all the things you need for school. I was always known for leaving my stationery buying until the last minute when I needed paper and pens to actually do my schoolwork! I used to plan an end-of-summer-holiday party for my friends: usually we would go bowling or have a picnic in the park and make the most of the last of the summer weather. :)

  5. huge fan i love you book i have an anonymous blog would mean the world i you could maybe share it!
