I was interested to see a large number of hits on the Planet Soap website coming from a recent Mumsnet chat, so I thought I'd take a little look. The conversation was largely reminiscing about soaps of our childhood, where have all the bar soaps gone, and comments for and against liquid versus bar soaps. And included this comment - 'I do like Lush or this indulgent lot - www.planetsoap.co.uk '
That made me smile - not just the free advertising, or the mention alongside a rather major soap business, but I was amused to be referred to as a 'lot' - I don't think the poster had any idea that it's just me stirring my pots and pans and talking to myself in what I once used to refer to as the living room!
The word 'indulgent' also made me smile. We all need a bit of indulgence in our lives, whether that's a glass of wine after a hard day at work, watching a DVD in bed, or enjoying a long soak in the bath, with a favourite, luxuriously fragrant soap. I'm happy to be adding to the choice of little 'don't-break-the-bank' indulgences out there. It's a simple thing, but it gives me a warm glow
And thinking about the importance of doing more of what feels good, I came to the conclusion that I should indulge in a bit more chat and communication with my customers. Hence this new blog, for soapy news and musings. Also a new Facebook page for Planet Soap - hopefully incorporating the blog if I can get my head around the technology. I hope you will 'Like' the Facebook page join in the chat on the page and the blog. I do need to look up from those pots and pans now and then, and stop talking to myself quite so much.
So go on, indulge me.
