Here in the South West of Australia the weather has been very wet and stormy for the past couple of weeks. We really need the rainfall here as the last few winters have been very dry – just down the paddock from our house there is a creek which used to flow every winter but it has been dry for the past 5 years. Last weekend it flowed – hurray!! Unfortunately for some though there were streams and rivers that broke their banks and friends have lost pumps, newly planted trees and some infrastructure. One bridge a little further south from here can’t be fixed until the spring weather comes along and that means very long road trips for residents in that area to get to town.
These wet, winter days are a great opportunity to take a little time to pamper yourself – read a book, take up that knitting, crochet or paintbrush – take care of yourself with a long soak in the bath. Folios and Fibre has teamed up with Handmade and Marina – these little spa pamper kits consist of a beautifully soft cotton crocheted wash cloth and a bar of lovingly created handmade soap. Enjoy!
