I’m loathe to tell you what to do because you’ve been so awfully nice to me but may I put the bossy boots on for just a smidgen? I know I can’t guarantee you’ll take my advice but all I can do is lead the horse to (hot) water.
Today’s tip is coming straight from this horse’s mouth. In other words, this post isn’t sponsored folks.
Pens poised please. Take note.
Get yourself a thermos.
I’ve just enjoyed my first of the season and good golly Miss Molly, it was sublime. There’s something so righteously retro about transporting a flask of hot fluid with its very own inbuilt teeny tiny cup.
My cup first runneth over when I lived in Cambridge in winter. I worked at a uni for a few months and the gardens were so magnificent that I took to arriving at work a tad early, just so I could have a leisurely cuppa kerbside. I did a fair bit of daydreaming and drank the home brew in lieu of squandering my tight traveller’s budget.
To be fair, a thermos isn’t a big investment but it is a down payment on a bit of a slow down. Sure, it’s a sandwich short of a picnic but at least it will give you a few minutes of cosy calm, right in the palm of your hand.
What do you do for an instant slow down/calm down?
