“The best laid plans o’ mice an‘ men…” is what they say isn’t it?
Unfortunately, last weekend it was the best laid plans o’ Mat an’ Kelly that went awry!
We had it all brilliantly planned and booked.
Friday should have been a great mix of an exciting morning packing for a weekend camping with the kids and my parents and a peaceful afternoon of a fantastic lunch and lovely walk for just me and Mat.
But we got a phone call.
One of THOSE Covid calls….
Have you guessed correctly?
Yep, one of the kids has to isolate.
With four kids at school it’s not the first time we have had one of these calls!
Friday morning got busy – unbook the campsite, cancel the cattery, put away those pesky tent pegs and rethink the weekend!
So we made new plans.
We did manage our walk on Friday, with a few drinks and a delicious meal in Lichfield.
On Saturday Layla had her ears pierced and is very, very proud of her beautiful earrings.
Later we had an amazing time playing games as a family.
Then Sunday was all about spoiling Mat rotten for Father’s Day!
We really did make the best of a bad situation.
We all enjoyed a lovely weekend anyway.
Plans do just have to change sometimes.
Or is this just the world we live in at the moment?
That we have to be ready for plans to change at the last minute?
If so, we reckon we’re ready.
We’ve done really well so far.
So, whether you plan to change your signage or have a change of plans thrust upon you, please give me a call. I’m still here, on 01543 677794 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
PS we’ve made other plans too!
Mat and I will be away the week commencing 2nd August, leaving Personalised Nation running on a reduced workforce (otherwise known as Ben!). If you need print, design or signage in early August, please get in touch with me or Mat before the end of July.
We have every intention of not letting our summer holiday plans go awry!
