At last, the order for Speke Hall is finished and all I have to do is drop it off. I have to admit it is nice to see a heap of soap, bath salts and gift bags ready to ship.
One thing this order did force me to do was design some labels for the bath salts. It is one of those things I kept putting off, although the salts did not look quite finished without them. I have to do some for the body butters and balms now.
It is good to be experiencing longer days. Tonight, it was still light at 5.30, and although it has gone colder again, it is a sign of spring. The snowdrops are in drifts in the woods, crocuses and tiny irises are beginning to open and soon there will be bright yellow daffodils waving in the breeze. The dark days of winter will soon be over, and I will not feel like a vampire.
