Secret Post Club - April

This month my Secret Post Club gift came from Geriatric Mummy (and I'm not being rude, that really is what her blog is called!). She had warned me it was going to be a few days late but it was such a lovely, thoughtful gift it really was worth the wait!

Firstly she bought me a herb growing kit, as she knew I like gardening and cooking. Containing basil, thyme and coriander, the seeds come with their own mini propagator, so the seedlings can be be grown on the window sill. She thought it would be a nice activity for me to do with the girls, and now I have a veg patch, I have somewhere to plant the seedlings once they get bigger.

Secondly, in her capacity as a former holistic therapist, she made me some organic hand cream, to treat my hands after being in the garden. The cream is made from coconut oil, white camelia oil, macademia nut oil and sunflower oil. She also added essential oils of Benzoin (for dry chapped skin, irritations & wounds), Lavendar (antiseptic & antifungal) and Lemon (antiseptic). And trust me, it feels and smells wonderful!

And last but not least, she included a bar of Green & Black Raisin & Hazlenut chocolate. Honestly, what more could a girl ask for?! Thank you once again GM - it was a truly lovely gift.
