Keep calm and carry on…….

This was the poster that the government produced in the Spring of 1939 just at the start of World War II. Em and Morgan bought a tea towel back from Norfolk for me recently with this slogan on and Em said ‘We saw this and thought of you Mum’.

I have been tested again lately and yes, I completely understand that it is as a direct result of my own choices, but that aside I had a real mess in front of me that needed sorting. When things go wrong, or turn out not quite as you had planned, then I believe it is absolutely essential to remain calm as the minute you give vent to emotion you lose your ability to think in any way. Calm, rational thought will give you the steps to take to resolve whatever you are facing because it allows you to hear your inner voice, your guides and the wisdom we all have nestling within us. Humour also helps alongside the love and support of family and friends.

So although I am in ‘sort’ mode I can still laugh and quip with ease thank goodness and I love what I found on the internet this morning when I was searching for an image of this poster. Several companies have taken the slogan and changed it to suit a few situations and this one caught my eye…….’Drink martinis and then seduce the gardener’….fantastic and I laughed out loud. I would just like to add ‘Graham and Craig you are perfectly safe, please come round with your chainsaws and get rid of this wretched conifer that is undermining the foundations of my house and I can assure you that all you will be offered is homemade cake!!’

    “Drink martinis and then seduce the gardener” sounds like great advice. Think I will try it when that dishy gardener my mum has comes along. Sadly it will not be for tomorrow, too much bloody snow.. Snow melt, I can’t wait!!! Come to think of it, I don’t like Martini 😀
