Singing in choirs

Laughter. Not caring if I sing along to supermarket songs, dance in the street, act silly and do a few unexpected slightly mad things on occasion! It always puts me in a good mood and makes my daughter and family and friends laugh. Laughter is the best medicine and keeps everyone feeling young and excited by life.

Listening to the music of my youth and dancing to it!

So many things! Playing loud music, going to football with my sons and husband, running around with my grandchildren, great classes in the gym and then going out for fun nights with the girls when we laugh until we cry!

My music taste. I love dance music and am definitely younger in my head than I am in my body!

Grew up by the seaside, so walking along the beach with the dog, taking the odd paddle.
