I first came across this piece of wisdom in this book.

I love Nigella’s way of writing.  She makes everything seem really easy and takes the cook’s approach to cooking instead of the chef’s.  I first came across her books when I poached a gift my chef brother had been given – How to Eat.

Back to Nigella Christmas.  For the big day she is first photographed carrying this mug (there I go again with mugs).

Keep Calm and Carry On Mugs

Here it is…. Encouraging, is it not?

The history of this motto dates to WW II.  It was meant to be ‘splashed’ all over Britain had Germany succeeded to invade it.  Since this did not, in fact, take place,  the original posters were never used.  At least one survived and was discovered earlier this decade.

Back to me…it has lately become my mantra.  I repeat it to myself often especially during the long hot afternoons when I feel only like lying down and dozing off but have to remain alert, entertaining and responsive to my 3 princesses.  For now it’s working… I hope it’s magic doesn’t fade.
