Sud off - Folksy Friday

Last week I joined in with the Christmas Swapping  going on over at Folksy. I've already completed one great swap with CreatedbyCarole and are just sorting one out with someone else. But in the process of looking through all the great shops involved it's become glaringly obvious that there is a severe lack of presents for the boys!! So if any of you have some great guy things please join up!!

Now my hubby is a big fan of Patchouli scented handmade soaps (good old hippy!!) and I just happened to have a trawl through the soaps on Folksy just to see what there was.....Wow! The humble soap has really come up in the world and I know it probably doesn't get as much atttention as other items so here is a small selection of gorgeous soapiness. ........just think...great stocking fillers......... !!

and of course you need something to put them in....

Wheels, Wellies and Webs......

My blog is still feeling a bit neglected. I have been a bit tied up in other things just recently but I WILL get back on track.......(I think!)

Since the last post, my daughter has learnt to ride (at last!!) so we have finally managed to go on a family bike ride.....hooray! My bike has been going rusty in our garden for about four years and I was desperate to get on it again. Pre children, and pre living 'oop north' I cycled to work most days, my route taking me past Windsor castle (in the distance!), through Eton and along the Thames...fantastic ride....

So we packed up the bikes and spent a lovely day cycling along the side of Lake Windermere to Wray Castle, stopped for lunch at 'Swallows and Amazons Cove' (named by the kids) and then cycled back good!! Cycling always gives me the feeling of complete freedom, wind in your hair, beautiful scenery...what more could you want?? Maybe not the sore backside the day after!!

On Wednesday while my hubbie took my daughter for a surprise horse ride with a friends horse (part of the birthday treat too!) me and little laddy went and rescued some veg from our overgrown, wild garden!! Couldn't believe it.....we had a whole heap of lovely yummy stuff growing out there. Made the most delicious broth tonight with some of the proud of ourselves!!
AND last but not least.....

MY WEBSITE IS UP AND RUNNING..........YAY!!   I'm sooo happy, I did most of it myself so it's not completely professional but it's MINE!!!

Go and have a look and let me know what you think (honestly please!!) WoollyLakes Website
