So a little while ago, I wrote up a little list of 50 different things to do at the weekend.
I really enjoyed thinking up ideas, and I know you guys liked them too! So I thought I’d see if I can think of 50 more to get our adventurous, creative juices flowing!
Because what’s life without a little adventure? And something a little bit different? Here’s 50 things to do this weekend!
