But a feel-good factor means different things to different people.
There was a feel-good factor in the Lodge household last night – and not only over the football result from Wembley!

The time when ‘Spring has sprung’; or the advent of summer, sunshine and holidays; Christmas festivities; New Year and all its varied resolutions; falling in/being in love; Olympic successes (as at London 2012); Andy Murray winning the Wimbledon tennis title; the arrival of a new Royal baby……
All these things can bring a feel-good factor to someone.
