I have this lovely little coffee mug that shows a comic-style woman who is a cross between a comic Viking and Obelix, with a blue-and-white striped dress and a helmet with horns and long red braids. The text framing this lady says "Alles unter Kontrolle" which is German for "Everything under control".

This mug was my absolutely favourite mug for a long time, and it still remains among my several favourites these days. I use it when I have things under control after a hard struggle - and when I wish that I had. Final-stage editing work definitely warrants the use of it today, though I won't tell you which of the reasons applies!
