Fifty Things To Cheer Up A Friend.

Because who would not want to do this?! Continuing with the ’50 things’ series, here’s the latest addition.

  1. Suggest a film night-with them choosing the film, and possibly, the theme to go with it. (Horror, anyone?)
  2. And that includes stuffing yourselves. (The occasional indulgence is alright, surely?) 
  3. Take them for a surprise day out, wherever they like-they could have even have mentioned it before. You also don’t have to spend a lot of money, or even any at all. 
  4. Visit them-suprise drop in visit.
  5. Write them a grattitude note, and hide it in their possessions.

  8. Go for a walk together.
  9. And a dog is optional.
  10. Spend time just talking to them, seeing how they feel. 
  11. Make something for them, with them in mind. (Rainbow scarf anyone?!)
