You know how sometimes you have those days that start ok but then a curveball hits your desk and it all turns to shit?? Yep, that was the kinda day I had today.
I was feeling a bit drained and emotional as I went about the routine of getting the girls fed and into bed and facing the prospect of doing a report tonight in readiness for tomorrow. But then the phone called, and it was my gorgeous friend Mrs Pett who must have sensed that I needed her wisdom and coaching this evening. We spoke for nearly an hour and a half and her parting words are still ringing in my ears.
You need to start channeling Kate Middleton, she said.
Kate Middleton? I was confused.
Yes. Imagine all the things that Kate sees and hears and knows and yet everyday she collects herself and puts her best foot forward regardless. That’s what you need to do.
And so, that’s what I’m going to do.
Have you had a bad day lately? Do you have a fabulous friend who is just the most wonderful source of wisdom?
