This was another Christmas present from my clever sister, who clearly knows her older sibling oh-so-well. After tackling midlife crisis, I now have a brilliant Ladybird book to guide me through the tricky waters of mindfulness:
“Mindfulness is the skill of thinking you are doing something when you are doing nothing.”
(Ouch, Jane, is there a hidden message here?)
Love the skewering of our middle-aged pretensions:
I also love (& humour me here, folks) the sheer Englishness of these books.
The dotty text, the wholesome illustrations, the deliberate throw-back to our childhood books, the tweaking of our nostalgia – oh the whole thing is too clever and such light-hearted fun.
Meet my favourite mindful character…
If you wish – mindfully of course – to buy this book, couldn’t be easier.
