First Post from Shropshire

I can hardly believe that it's been three months since we made our big move from Surrey and our home of 34 years to the rural outskirts of Shrewsbury in Shropshire.  It's been an interesting time not least because of the weather - a foot of snow after our arrival, not to mention teeming rain and gale force winds - and various problems like a defunct boiler ...and many other hurdles to be overcome.

However, overcome them we did and we are fairly happily settled here in Myddle although at the moment we're renting our house and currently in the process of looking for somewhere permanent to buy. House hunting has its fair share of ups and downs but on the whole it's fun and hopefully our dream house is not too far away although we've not found it yet.

I had thought that perhaps the skincare business would have to take a backseat once we'd moved but it hasn't turned out to be the case and I'm busy making products for our delightful village shop and I've been keeping my hand in on the soap-making front, as usual experimenting with different designs and techniques so here are just a few of my Myddle soaps!

Rosemary & Eucalyptus


Savon d'Alep

Creamy Lavender

I've booked my first Craft Fair at Wem on 20th April so I'm really starting to feel at home here in glorious Shropshire.
