Of course using cake tins for their proper use would be much to normal in this household, I was making a fresh batch of soap. It is going down so well at the Farmers Markets I have to make a new selection for each market.
I am trying to stick to just a couple of choices, slices or hearts to keep things simple and aid the production line. Otherwise you find people saying 'I wanted a round lemon one or a square lavender', when all you have left are heart shaped orange ones....you can't please all the folk all the time. Anyway the kitchen smelt gorgeous all day. Unfortunately, when Lovely Hubby came home it was back to packing more 'Betty' meat for todays sales and the atmosphere changed completely. We are so pleased we have managed to sell almost all of the meat not set aside for LH's own consumption. The rest is now safely stored in the freezer and I can claim back by big fridge.....oooh I feel a shopping trip coming on!! And what else did I promise you yesterday....... Why 'before' and 'after' shots of my Mum I do believe! After lots of girlie talk last week she bravely took the plunge and decided in one fell swoop to knock at least ten years off her age by cutting off her newly done 'granny perm' and, in the process of changing tops, a good 2 or 3 dress sizes vanished too. (The top in the above picture has already been donated to the charity shop!) My new Mum.....I'm soooooo proud she looks....well just like me (and you can tell she loves it just look at that cheeky grin). Gok Wan would be proud, as would the 10 Years Younger brigade.
If you like the change, please leave a comment, she's coming here to stay for the weekend with my Dad and would love to see what you lovely Blogging ladies (and men) think. Have a lovely day, I have to go and do my hair....it seems I have competition!! Sue xx
