How time flies! Right, I better quickly pen down whatever I need to while the kids are all asleep, I have so much to tell you. 🙂
Our darling Reuben is now a chatty, chirpy 6-month-old. He’s still fully on breast milk but I want to introduce simple, soft solids like bananas and porridge on a daily basis. No longer content to just sit and observe while being carried, he’s like a little octopus, clutching on tight to whatever he possibly can. More often than not, it’s a fistful of my hair.
On the soapy side of things, my office is suddenly filled with gadgets–rather large ones, at that. All geared towards helping me concentrate fully on creating, rather than cleaning up and slaving over packaging!
My aunt and uncle gifted me with a chamber shrink wrapping machine (thank you Yee Cheong and Peng Yee!) that enables me to shrink-wrap a bar of soap every 4 seconds. It’s a wonderful time-saver! I also opted for biodegradable polyolefin shrink wrapping material which is helping me deal with the guilt of having to use plastic to protect my soap. :”>
Apart from kitting out the office with production-line stuff (the shrink wrapping machine, thermostat-controlled oil warmers, log and bar slicers), I’ve been blessed with a couple of potential wholesale customers. I’ve sent them their quotations, said my prayers and am now awaiting their responses. I’ve promised myself to be happy and satisfied regardless of the outcomes.
Hubby and I have been busy with setting up this new website design in these past couple of weeks. It’s an off-the-shelf template that we decided to buy, after Han looked it over and was more or less satisfied with its functionality.
Right now I feel like I’m welcoming you into a store that has all the stuff on the shelves, and we can still have a chat and you buy my soap–but there will be the occasional curtain that has fallen off a hook, paint peeling from the walls, or a signboard that reads funny. And hubby and I will patch these up whenever we can find the time. I hope you don’t find it too much of a bother. :”>
Aw, dang… the neighbour started hammering a nail in the wall and it woke Reuben. Gotta sayang him now. Till next time, take care!
