Folksy Friday - Picnic time

Start with some sunshine, Add a rug, Something to carry the food and of course the cutlery. Don't forget the wine and add some cake to the mix - The perfect picnic!

Ok so apparently my bottom is to big...

So in a attempt to kind of shame myself into sticking to this damn horrible diet - Which consists of normal food and very few treats, As opposed to big treats every few hours. Im going to chart my progress here for you all to see.

Ive done very very little exercise since the baby was born so its about time I started that - Properly!

I seem to have accumulated several fitness dvd's some trainers and a exercise machine thingymajig, So I suppose its about time to put them all to good use.

So here goes - First weigh in was 11 stone 12 lb

Wish me luck!

A update on the gardening

Seeing as the first attempt went so badly, we ditched the courgettes and tomatoes and started those over.

Looks like we are doing much better this time :o) And we have some extra things growing now - Well just starting. We have basil and french beans growing too.
I have also been working hard getting all the new products on the website - Theres now some new melts online that can only be ordered from the site.

Hope your all having a great monday x

Mum? How do you spell upolla?

This was the question big L asked me this morning, Now most things I can spell and I was pretty certain that I'd heard of most words that the children would know - So this one took me by surprise, I asked him what a upolla was and he didn't know. 10 Minutes and much frustration later we worked out he was trying to write a story, Starting with "Once upolla time" Cue the stifled giggles from the older ones! How cute is that?

Do your kids come out with any cute oddities?

I have also been working hard the last few days on a new range that includes a Rich Italian!

A Re-think and a giant rabbit

I've had a little bit of a re-think on my postage prices and my special offers - Well with a little bit of a nudge!

I have put free postage on all my jewellery and also -

It was pointed out to me that people might like to try just one before buying a few, The postage for a single candle made it hard to buy just one candle and if people had never tried them then they might not think they are worth it…..

So to try and encourage you to try I have introduced a weekly-ish “Try Me”

I will choose a scent and price it at £1.75 – Including postage.

Starting with French Vanilla

And as for the giant rabbit - Well we decided it would be a good idea to jump on the train and take all the children into London and have a walk round the shops and see a few sights, We went into Selfridges and who should we bump into?A giant version of little L's favourite character of all time - Meet little L and Peter rabbit

It was actually a really nice day and much less stressful than I was expecting. I didn't expect taking 5 children on the tube to be one of my better ideas, but apparently it was!

I have been gardening!!!

This is not usually a activity I partake in often - We sometimes grow a few tomatoes in the garden but that's about it and I would normally but the plants already half grown. This year I decided to see it through from start to finish - or until I manage to kill everything off which is more likely!

So last week with my shopping list, wrote by the children of course. I went off to the shops to buy us some seeds and mud. (I resisted the pretty vintage looking watering can, That can come later!)

A week later and this is our efforts so far -

Ok so its not going to make us self sufficient just yet but its a start, Right? lol

So does anyone know what I do with the courgettes next? Im sure they aren't supposed to look like that!
