Bordem Bound // Half Term Remedies

Well hello again...

I know many people including myself will be off school for a week now so there will be times where you might have nothing to do? I guess these will be suggestions for you to try!

If you play any instruments try and learn new songs that are your favourite artists or something. I play ukulele and guitar so I like to learn lots of new songs then I feel like I've accomplished something... 
I have an Ashton ukulele.

Go somewhere different! I recently went to London as I previously blogged about ( A Trip at Home // London ) and it was a brilliant experience. It was fun and kind of education as I now know different parts of my own city. Even if visiting a new place is a bit scary for you, go with someone you know will make you comfortable!

Read a book, watch a film. Two things that pass time. If you're not into books as I know a lot of people are not then watch a film, at home or the cinema. Have a film day and invite your friends over and watch loads of films you've all wanted to watch. Depending on what you want to watch, some comedies I recommend are Step Brothers, Bridesmaids, Identity thief and so many more!

This might sound like a completely idiotic idea but clean or decorate your room. Put on one of your favourite albums on and just make your room more presentable. It makes it feel a lot better to be in once it's all neat and tidy and you'll probably find that you have more space too! 
For example, I tidied up my little book corner.

Go for a meal, with friends, family or anyone else you want. Sometimes a nice evening or afternoon out is a good relaxation session. It means you don't have to do much, you're still being social-able and even get to eat food at the same time. I know, I know, it's perfect.

Retail therapy. Two simple words! Go shopping with a friend or a bunch of friends, whether you're buying a new wardrobe, a few necessitates or just window shopping I guarantee this will pass time and be enjoyable...but if you're reading this and are not a girl...Go play football with the boys? Go to the cinema? Hang at a friends house. The possibility of what to do are endless you just need to think about it.

Well, I hope that gave you some ideas as it took me about two hours to write...because I got distracted and started playing ukulele. One more idea is to write a blog! Even if you think no one would read it because trust me people will. When I started this blog I thought I would be lucky to get 20 views and I just passed 400 views! So if you are a frequent reader thank you so much, the fact that people actually read this blog means so much to me, some of you aren't even from the United Kingdom which is absolutely crazy!

If you have any questions or comments drop them down below or tweet them to me @shanrobinsonn also be sure to follow me on tumblr if you have it! All my links are up above in the 'Where to find me tag' so head on over there if you want! 

Thank you once again for reading this and I hope you enjoyed today's blog!
