The Ultimate British Summer To-Do List
Ok… Maybe you're not a summer person, or maybe you're just really unorganised. Either way, at least try and chow down a 99 with a flake and hum a few bars of 'Oh I Do Like To Be Besides The Seaside' - it's practically British law.
You kinda like the summer - but it's not your favourite season. Want to know a way to ramp it up? Remember: everything that was fun when you were a kid, is still fun now. Blow bubbles, roll down a hill, go get some grass stains. Get outside and have some fun!
You're a little ray of sunshine! You LOVE the summer and have a chock-a-block summer to-do list. Come September, you're going to have tan lines, enviable Instagram snaps a-go-go, a million stories to tell (and a lovebite from Greek waiter, that we won't tell anyone about… Promise).
You're as British and summery as a a knotted hankie worn on the head of a sunbather on Brighton beach. You love everything about the British summer - the sun, the sea, the smells, the wasps - ok, maybe not the wasps. No one loves the wasps. You're going to make this summer count. Hurrah! Hats off to you!
