So I'm safely in the UK after almost two days in the air and half a week to recover from jetlag. It's nice to be able to relax, I've been making plenty of progress on Calm Waters. Earlier in the week I managed to get out and explore the small Welsh town I'm staying in at the moment and see some of the shops. Man I wish New Zealand had WH Smiths! (seriously, books are so much cheaper in the UK). I thought I'd show you just how pretty the town is. These photos aren't taken by me, because the day I explored was a bit grey and not the best photo taking weather.

I used the tutorial here. This batch was Lily and Jasmine scented and smelled lovely. It was so easy to make and even the more unusual ingredients were easy to find (I got plain epsom salts from the local bulk food store, and glycerin from the chemist) – I would totally recommend it for a sweet last minute Christmas gift.
That's all for now, hope everyone's having a great week!
