Strangely calm.....



Things were riding very smoothly this morning getting ready for school. We were so organised that we even managed to step out to school 10min's early.

As I pulled the door closed, I realised our morning was about to change dramatically. Yep, I locked the keys in the house. That's house keys and car keys!

The universe decided to throw me a curve ball, and I was strangely calm. Normally there would be cuss words and a cranky disposition for the rest of the day.

But this morning, I just rolled with it. I instantly decided to swap my gym routine for a brisk walk to school. It was on this strangely calm walk I formulated my action plan. By 9:30am I was back in the house and ready to get on with the my day.

I think today, I learned a valuable lesson, well two lessons.

Always double check for keys before leaving the house. And remain calm, there is no need to over react, just stay calm.
