  1. Thanks for the well wishes, we are at the end of this sickness bug thankfully. Maggie, hope you're feeling better and I'm sorry to hear about your relatives. Not a good start to 2020 indeed. Michele, not long to go now, looking forward to hearing about the wedding. OPT? I'm certain I've tried this vendor, sounds familiar. Long story short, a few years ago there were people over here who set up their own online business and bought from American vendors and sold them on. Then, rules came out here that all vendors had to be CLP compliant and every wax had to have a safety label on them. Well, that would include any wax that came from abroad too and it had to be the vendor who did it, not the person here selling it on. That would obviously be so much more work for your vendors to do it just for us. We can still order direct from America obviously, if its for our own use, its only if we sell it on as a business thing we have to comply. Phew, longer story than I thought, lol. Amy, happy news about your colleague, wonderful. Did it snow last night? Carrying on with your challenge Amy, I'm melting Snow Fairy by Darley Lama. It's pink!! Happy Friday everyone.
  2. Morning! Maggie, hope you are feeling better. I'm afraid it's the same over here, we're having an illness bout too. Couple of weeks ago Mike had a cold, on Saturday both myself and my son started with a sore throat (only mild though) then developed into the sniffles for me but has completely floored my son. Temperature, aches and headache. Thankfully he's better than he was. Debra, black and Tiffany Blue sounds amazing. Michele, not long now for the wedding. Amy, joining in today for your melting challenge Kitchen ~ CFTKR Chilled Sangria Living Room ~ Darley Lama Mum's Day Off (pink wax) Have a lovely day everyone
  3. Ladies, not been here in a while Michele, when is the wedding? Black sounds very chic for a wedding, I see that a lot in weddings over there, doesn't seem a thing here. Maggie, hope you get positive news re your DH. Amy, rain again here today, and cold too. I'm longing for spring now. Glad you're doing another melt challenge, I've loved your January one. Just changed my wax to.... Living Room - ScentSationals Cuddle Up Kitchen - YC Home Inspirations Sugar Blossom Have a lovely day.
  4. Hi all, Valerie, hope you get answers soon re your husband. Michele, glad the PT is going well. Maggie, Elephants Ear? What on earth does that smell of? Intreagued. For me it's Darley Lama Lavender and Chamomile, so soothing and relaxing. I'm off out shortly, family meal for my uncle who turns 70 next week. Small gathering as he didn't want a party but this week decided a family meal would suit. Looking forward to it, the restaurant is either Bangladeshi or Indian, I can't remember, lol.
  5. Morning all, it's a cold and frosty day today, about 40° and just got back from breakfast with Mike then went meat shopping at a local farm shop. Can't beat fresh from the farm meat (and veg, but didn't buy any) Am in limbo with my melt warmers, sniffed them, no idea what's in them, most have some fragrance left so not sure what to do. Might light a couple of them and see what that smells like. Have a lovely day everyone
  6. Morning all Well, its a blustery cold day here, as we live up in the hills its worse here. Was out early today as needed 2 new tyres for my car, its a lot calmer down there. So, back home now, changed wax to Cleaves Pistachio Pudding Cake in living room Yankee Candle Home Inspiration Pomegranate Coconut in the kitchen. Tell me, is Kettle Corn the same as popcorn? Have a lovely day everyone.
  7. I'm here cookielady, lol Melting Nutcracker in the living room Christmas in New York in the kitchen Both by Darley Lama
  8. Afternoon all, hope you're well. Today I'm melting Frosty Moonbeams by Darley Lama Sandalwood and Black Pepper, again by Darley Lama
  9. Maggie, great title, and as others have said we can all relate!! Happy New year to you all. New year was quiet, spent at home. This morning I'm melting Pumpkin Soufflé by Darley Lama from the Halloween box she did. It's scrummy. First time melting from that box. I'm not a 100% seasonal melter so Halloween in January is fine lol. I'll melt Christmas fragrances in the summer, the other day I burnt YC Napa Valley Sun when it was really wintry out. Anyone here strict seasonal melters? Or not?
  10. Afternoon all, only 7.5hrs left of this decade for me. Hope you all have a lovely evening. Staying in for us. Melting Frosty Moonbeams by Darley Lama all downstairs. Happy New Year everyone xx
  11. December 26th is called Boxing Day and it was traditionally a day off for servants and they received a 'Christmas Box' from the master. The servants would also go home on this day to give 'Christmas Boxes' to their families. Nowadays it's a public holiday where most businesses are closed, some retail are open, hospitals are obviously open but like weekends there are no office staff or clinics, no scheduled operations etc. Boxing day sales happen too, great time for bargains so shops can get hectic. Question, if Christmas Day falls on a Saturday or Sunday, would the following Monday be a public holiday? It is here. If Christmas and Boxing Days fall on Saturday and Sunday then Monday and Tuesday will be a holiday. Same with New Year's Day too.
  12. Melters on The Magical Melt Co Nutcracker CFTKR Merry Mint
  13. Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I've blobbed for the last 2 days too, the day after Christmas day is also a holiday here too, except for some people in retail, some open, the smaller shops stay closed. Been out for a beach walk today, wrapped up warm as it was chilly. Just got home so not melted today as yet.
  14. Morning all. Amy, glad it wasn't your candle that set the fire alarm off! We haven't had any snow locally, but it is very low on the mountains behind us. It is cold here though. We don't have any traditions that are specifically Welsh that we follow, not that I know of anyway. Susan, so sorry for your break up, hugs. Michele, how is your recovery? Today I'm melting Bathroom, CFTKR Creamsicle Torte Kitchen, CFTKR Merry Mint (stunning) Living Room, The Magical Melt Co Bedtime Bath, I think its a dupe of the Johnsons Baby Bath. It's lovely and reminds me of my son's bathtime as a child. Have a lovely day everyone.
  15. Michele, glad you're on the mend. Maggie, yay for the concerts to be over. Now to relax, lol Amy, happy you got home safely, are you away again this coming week? All your wax sounds wonderful. Not melted today, cleaning the burners in the morning. It's 11pm, I'm in bed with the sound of rain, thunder and lightning, its been really cold today. Happy Saturday
