Hip, Hip, Hooray


We were so lucky with our weather on Saturday in my part of Essex – glorious. There were blue skies, sun and warmth – simply lovely.

I don’t know about you, but it always amazes me how much energy I have when this happens and how much I can do, how creative I can be…  Also how much pleasure I take in the simple things – even if they can be a little tiring i.e. mowing the lawn – and seeing others smiling.

Life seems so much better, easier, lighter and happier when the weather is good – even with all the craziness going on here regarding Brexit!

If you are caught up in bad weather, Brexit or perhaps more, I’ve found this little poem that I want to share with you.  I hope it will put a smile on your face which is always a good thing – never mind that it helps us look younger!


A Prayer for the Stressed


Grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change,

The courage to change things I cannot accept

And the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill today because they pissed me off!

Also please help me to be careful of the toes I step on today as they may be connected to the ass I may have to kiss tomorrow.

Help me to always give 100% at work – 12% on Monday, 23% on Tuesday, 40% on Wednesday, 20% on Thursday, 5% on Friday

And finally, help me to remember – when I am having a REALLY BAD DAY and it seems that people are trying to piss me off, help me to remember that it takes 42 muscles to frown and only 4 to extend the arm and smack the arsehole in the mouth.
