The Leap Year: What to do with a whole extra day

The Leap Year: What to do with a whole extra day

This morning we woke up to enjoy a day that only happens once in every 1461. Obviously there are certain things that we have to do – work, family etc. but even the busiest of us has free time. So what to do with this little chronological present?

  1. Exactly what you want

What do you want to do? I’m not just talking about slouching in front of the TV either; think of one of those things that you’ve wanted to do for ages and put off. Spend your time doing that, or at least getting closer to doing it. It is a straightforward way of making yourself happy and giving yourself a sense of accomplishment.

  1. Put a dent in your wages

It may be leap year day but it’s also the last day of the month, which means payday for most of us and time to spend the leftover cash ready for payday tomorrow for the rest. Either way, pop into town, treat yourself to a meal or don your gladrags and tear it up at the local club. Make sure to toast the leap year while you’re at it.

  1. Donate it to a great cause

 They say that time is money, so why not donate some of your extra cash on the extra day and feel good? Unicef is trying to provide blankets, shelters and other necessities to the desperate children who have fled the war in Syria. You can donate £3 by texting BLANKET to 70007 or following this link.
