I didn’t realise how many books I had read, although I average a novel a fortnight it always surprises when I actually think about the amount of books of I have read, especially as there is probably twice as many again that I just haven’t had the time or opportunity to read.

Tomorrow I plan to make my first batch of handmade soap, and I have ordered the ingredients to make bath bombs too. All the females in my family will be receiving lavender soap, lavender bath bomb and a purple washcloth. Luckily I won’t see then until after xmas as the soap will only just be cured in time for xmas. Oh well, lets hope it will be worth the wait.

I’m off to go see what exactly is happening in the hamster cage.
