‹‹ How low can the price go? Our little secret ››

When things go wrong, and they sometimes will...

[When things go wrong, and they sometimes will],
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are -
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit -
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.

[My mum gave me this poem on a beautiful card when I first left Australia to study overseas for a year. I carried her hand-written card around in my wallet for almost 20 years until my purse was stolen a couple of years ago. Interestingly the thing I was most upset about losing was the poem. I was reminded of it when reflecting on my day!]

I spent all day on Saturday working on a new candle. In my mind it is a long (40 – 50cm), elegant, very slightly tapered, dipped taper candle. It is inspired by, and to me a logical progression to, our recently launched Bee Lights (with which I am completely obsessed).

Today was my third day of production testing…

Below are a couple of photographs from my last test batch today. You will appreciate that the final version is still a little way away!

Having said that, I am actually burning them at home today (no point in them going to waste!) and they are burning BEE-UTIFULLY...
