I saw this idea a while ago over at Fat Mum Slim, and thought it was so good, I just had to do something similar.
The idea is that you write a little note when something makes you smile or laugh, and pop it into the jar.
They can be tiny things – something funny the kids say, seeing a rainbow, something lovely you had to eat or drink, a compliment received – the list is endless.
And at the end of the year, (or whenever you like, I guess – just thought I’d do mine for a year, though), you open up the jar and read through all the notes – remembering things that in the normal course of a year you probably might not remember. Perfect for somebody with a shocking memory like mine!
I’m already looking forward to opening my jar and reading all the notes in December 2013.
