2016 gives us a one in four year opportunity to celebrate the leap-year.
The tradition over here in the UK is that this is the day that women can propose to men and if men refused, a fine was levied (which was a pair of leather gloves, £1 and a kiss). But we think that the fine should always apply, maybe to both sexes, on a refusal – softens the blow?
Although of course every day is a gift, this year we have a special opportunity to enjoy one extra day free, so that this year we have 366 rather than 365 days. What are you going to do with your one extra day that you wouldn’t have had a chance to enjoy otherwise? Let us know how you will be celebrating your free day!
This is your one ‘free’ day, think of it as an excuse to Move a little more and connect with the ones you love.
And in fact, it’s Mother’s Day at the end of the week – so this may well be an opportunity to connect with your mother, or your kids, or the ‘mother’, for each of us has a maternal side which needs to be nurtured and taken care of. Maybe you’d like to give your mother the gift of a subscription to MFML? Remember that subscribers get 50% off gift subscriptions, and it’s good to keep your mum moving!
