olympia (13) and i did a full day workshop recently where we made four types of cold-processed soap. they are so beautiful and the house is full of the smell as they cure for four weeks. our favourite is goats milk with lemon myrtle essential oil and vanilla! we want to eat it.
spent a week on the central coast with children and my parents, where it rained almost incessantly. brief interludes to forage for coffee and take pics with my phone of footprints in the sand. the rest of the time was spent playing scrabble and eating. still, it was lovely to get out of sydney.

sophie (daughter, 18) and i have been knocking about ideas regarding the development of a line of natural skincare products. this is based on our love of beautiful, fragrant, natural, effective things to smooth on our skin and put on our hair. also our disgust at the crap that is in most skin/hair care products. and our desire to set up an ethical enterprise that fits in with our philosophy.
so we will formalise all the lovely pots of stuff we play with and beauty treatments we have developed, buy some exquisite natural base ingredients and get tinkering.
my time in hong kong at the natural health clinic, my aromatherapy background and massage qualifications will come in handy here...
so, we have a domain name that is really good and appropriate for whatever we undertake and not just in skincare, but in eco baby clothes, publishing, organic jams and chutneys and everything!
our name is:
we'll keep you posted
