Thanks for popping in to visit with me. Come and grab a cuppa while I share what's going on around our little cottage.......just a hop, skip & a jump from the Murray River in country Victoria.

So you might be wondering just what I've been getting up to since my last post?? Well, wonder no more...... apart from getting stuck into the garden fighting a good fight against the weeds, and getting the vegie garden planted up for summer...... hmmm, well it was summer a couple of days ago, but today its been freezing again...... makes me want to get out the knitting to keep myself warm lol But most of all, the thing that's been keeping me busy has been the pull to get my little homemade soap business budding again....... soap, candle melts and homecare products like furniture conditioner made from local beeswas, cold pressed olive oil and yummy essential oils....... but
of course there is always an obstacle or two (at the very least)....... I'm currently finding out all about soaps coming under the Australian NICNAS legislation and the crazy thoughts of having to actually get insurance in the case of those very few horrendous ones who like to sue....... yes, soap is a chemical it seems, even with natural ingredients it creates a chemical reaction (or there would be no soap!!)
It's a bit of a shame given how popular my soaps seem to be with friends, relatives and coworkers......... but we shall see how it pans out...... perhaps I will just remove soaps from my list of products :( Meantime we've been lucky enough to have a little café open up here in Bundalong!! So exciting to be able to have somewhere local to purchase a cuppa!!
