Very Good News




This morning I found myself thinking of Mma Ramotswe from the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency. In her beautiful Botswana accent everything is either very good news or very bad news. Whenever things get rough and she declares it is a "very bad news" situation, she slows it right down, puts all on hold and makes a cup of bush tea. How brilliant is that - nothing can take precedent over the enjoyment of slowly sipping a soothing cup of tea. It is during this experience that she suddenly has insight into her cases and knows what direction to take. I LOVE this show, the characters are fantastic and very lovable and endearing and the unlikely detective uses her instinct and common sense to solve her cases. Very good news indeed!
