important soap winners

The first pop song I ever recall hearing was Joe Jackson's lugubrious Be My Number Two. I spent serious hours on a tyre swing in Mayo listening to it, along with Self-Control and Camouflage, on my new Walkman. It may have been the summer of 1984. I blame the formative influence of this sort of thing for my susceptibility to pathos and my misplaced sympathy for giveaway losers.


So after drawing a random commentator, Amanda, I kept going and drew two more names, Lilly and Ruah. Ruah, I've no idea where you are so please drop me a line (there's an email address to your right there). A gift box of three handmade soaps will soon be on the way to you all.

Thanks to Hajni for these lovely soaps, and you can buy them from Bumblebee Soaps on etsy. Hajni makes the seaweed soaps used by Kilcullen's Bathhouse in Enniscrone, so look out for them if you're there.

  7. There there, here's a vintage lace hankie for your tears, Jaboopee. I feel awfully bad that you didn't win and am just packing up everything I own to send you. I sure hope you like tinned chick peas; I seem to own a lot of those now that I've started rummaging. Perhaps you could make some hummus or something?

  9. Lovely soaps and lucky winners! I didn't enter since I'd won the amazing chocolates last time and didn't want to be too greedy, but now I have soap envy. Maybe I'll have to find some pretty handmade soaps this week.

  17. Ah yes, congratulations and all that to the winners. You may brush it off with one of your fine witticisms, but you are most kind-hearted to give away extras, dear Mise.

  19. Whoo hoo hoo!!! I'm going to be so clean and pretty and sweetly scented!! I'll be a walking, talking bunch of flowers. People will walk past me, stop in their tracks, take in the wonderful scent, retrace their steps and give me all their wordly belongings, just because I have hypnotised them with my intoxicating aroma. Now you wouldn't get THAT with a bar of Imperial Leather, would you? Thanks Mise!
