Fun lists to make when bored

Sometimes it’s good to while away a bit of spare time with something that’s fun and frivolous. It’s good for the soul to smile. But also great to enjoy a bit of downtime.

If you’re bored and wondering what to do, then why not create a fun list or two to fill the time.

Remember great memories.

And maybe it will lead to random acts of kindness following on from some of these about people.
