5 Ways to feel a Million Dollars


This weeks Fab Five for Friday is 5 Ways to feel a Million Dollars. These are Mummy’s Top 5:

5 Ways to feel a Million Dollars (2)

1. Hugs, kisses and cuddles from my children. NOTHING beats this!

2. A night in all snuggled up watching a good family film with my family. We love choosing a film from Netflix.

3. A delicious meal in a country pub with a roaring log fire.

4. A walk along the beach, or through woodland on a dry crisp autumn day.

5. Treating myself to a fab new wardrobe (ok one or two new pieces!) I have just seen the most gorgeous coat in Next.


Everyone is different and they have their own ideas of what makes them feel special and like a million dollars. These are just some of my own ideas but it would be great to know what makes you feel special – some people play the lottery and the various new slot sites to help them to win real cash and others resist the urge to spend all month until pay day and treat themselves to a good splurge! I try and save up for something special as a treat.

What do you do to feel a million dollars?


  1. I love it when my Son comes in for a hug and a kiss- it’s a rarity as he’s more excited about playing but it just melts my heart!
