Start The Day The Right Way
Start the day the right way and you will have such a different mindset. Ever since I was little I loved to drink my morning beverage out of a beautiful cup or glass. I think it all comes from having a grandma that loved her ornate crockery. She used to have a beautiful carved mahogany cabinet in her guest sitting room. The contents of that grand cabinet was only used for special occasions like Christmas, birthdays, Sundays or when I used to stay over. It made me feel so special knowing she'd open that cabinet and ask me what china I wanted to have my perfectly timed, runny yolk, pouched egg and toast served on.
She had a cozy, warm and beautiful victorian house in Ryde on the Isle Of Wight. The memories I have locked away as a child were mainly created in that house in Argyll Street. Sublime memories of happiness, affection, and love. Weekends spent with my Grandma were extraordinary and spectacular. I felt so cherished and safe, and I never wanted it to end. So when she passed away those moments spent with her I needed to keep forever. Breakfast was our favourite meal of the day. She used to say start the day the right way and you can accomplish anything. She also said to me to trust my gut. Something else I remind myself on a daily basis.
I recreate those breakfasts to this day. They make me feel nostalgic and happy. I still need to find the old fashioned egg poacher she used to use to really bring back the perfect charm of my childhood. One day I will, but for now I love to indulge myself and my husband in home room service whenever we can.
Now in my 40's if I still love to start the day serving up my breakfast in a more beautiful manner. We all love to get room service when we are on holiday as it makes us feel grateful. So my little tip for all of you is to create that for yourself whenever you have the time. Lazy weekends, early mornings or days off can start the right way! They really do set the tone for your mood and for me they bring back phenomenal memories. It also makes me feel special like it did when I was little.
Really simple little things can have a huge impact on the rest of your day. So start the day the right way. Grab a few essentials and create your very own room service!
