For my recent birthday, I received several little parcels in the mail with New Zealand postmarks. As I unwrapped the various treats that were enclosed, I was delighted to find this:
Do I really need to tell you that it's my new favorite mug, or had you guessed that already? Fad though it may be, I've loved the "Keep Calm and Carry On" logo ever since it (re)appeared a few years back. The various variants (doesn't "various variants" sound rather spiffy?), though, have never caught my eye. Keep Calm and... Eat Cupcakes? Go Shopping? Not really my thing.
But this... this is different. Because keeping calm and drinking tea just fit.
Maybe I should go brew a cup right now, since I have a feeling that my toddler's urgent repetitions of "Daddy! Daddy!" (yes, he's referring to me...) to get my attention might make both a hot cuppa and a timely reminder quite necessary...
