Make Life Good #6 : Plan A Date

Fat Mum Slim /


Now that the lovey-dovey-ness of Valentine’s Day is over, I wanted to talk about challenge number 6 of the Make Life Good challenge; Plan a date with a friend, partner or family member.

This one is easy to dismiss. You might think, ‘Oh I caught up with a friend for coffee the other day, I’ve ticked this one off the list already’ or perhaps you’ll be thinking more along the lines of, ‘Heck yes! I need some fun time! I’m making a date ASAP!’

I do a lot of little incidental stuff with my Hubby and family, but I think it’s really nice to set a date rather than just rely on the incidental get-togethers. It means there’s something to look forward, and anticipation is a good thing. I’ve nabbed some Adele tickets, and I’ll be going with my sister and my cousin, and I’m excited. It’s nice to build up my excitement to that date, and then enjoy it as well.

So, whether it’s a concert, a show, cocktails, coffee, a walk, a gym session or yoga class, a dinner or a movie date… book in a date. Having something to look forward to is one of the keys of happiness so get texting/calling/talking/emailing today and set up a date in the next month.

I’d love to hear about what you have planned. xx

    well I don’t have an exact day as such, but have verbally booked in a date with my son, his girl and hubby to have a dinner out at a nice steak house

    All done here. Girl brunch after school drop off on Valentine’s Day….we even brought roses for ourselves…was heaps of fun just to chat and catch up with yummy food.

    My hubby has his first rostered day off since starting a new job 15 months ago, so we are hitting our local club for a lunch date. Our 13 year old son will be at school. Very rare just the two of us.

  • I met a girlfriend during the week – we hadn’t seen each other for ages – we went for a really long walk and rewarded ourselves with a coffee by the harbour. At the weekend, hubby is joining me at a rusty riders cycling lesson. He’s not rusty at all, he’s accompanying me as my wobble monitor! Enjoy Adele – how fab!
