    Wow, I did not realise that you started your lists back in 2015, until finding this just now! How great you are to keep it up. For some reason your 2016 list does not have a comment area but I just wanted to say you have some great ideas, and I am really impressed by what you have achieved over the last two years. I may be “borrowing” some of your ideas for my 17 for 2017!

  3. What a great list of inspiration!

  4. I loved this list!!!! Especially the last item. 🙂 I might give it a go for next year.

    • Thank you, I have loved having this list. You know the moments when you think What shall I do, well this list has provided me with the prompts to some lovely activities. I will definitely do one for 2016.
