Just got back from a wonderful break in Cornwall. The weather was fabulous, the beaches were clean and uncrowded and our accomodation was comfortable.
My dad had taken the two eldest to Center Parcs, so it was just us two and youngest, who had a whale of a time digging in the sand and falling into rockpools.
We had ‘ordered’ the trip to Padstow whilst working through the prosperity game. We had also ‘ordered’ a meal at Fifteen and Rick Stein’s sea food restaurant. Unfortunately we had to make do with gazing at the menus looking like we were going in to book, but then changing our minds!!
In fact we did go into Rick Stein’s place and booked ourself a table for dinner knowing that they don’t allow young children. The receptionist booked us in and then noticed our grinning toddler sitting in his very battered bright yellow pushchair. ‘I’m sorry we don’t take children under the age of three’. ‘Oh No!!’ exclaimed the OH, ‘Well you’ll just have to cancel our booking’ and trounced out in disgust. We then stood in the nearby chippy giggling.
On our way back from Padstow, we decided to ditch the Sat Nav and navigate the old fashioned way with a map! Somehow we managed to drive past a place called St Kitts Herbery. As I have a passing interest in herbs we decided to pull in. Outside were gorgeous smelling herbs and a very friendly cat which youngest waved at so vigorously he fell over!
Inside was a wonderful shop full of lotions, bubble baths, creams and chocolate!! All hand made using natural ingredients.
I had a field day picking out some face cream, cleanser and of course…chocolate!!
We had a long chat with the owner Paul and he told us how it was a family run business and when they first started and despite huge debts they persevered with the business and have now found success online and even supply Jamie Oliver’s restaurants.
It was a great story and sounded very ‘Law of attraction’. I’ve been using their products for a week now and I’m very impressed. I might even stopped buying my Neals Yard products and switch to St Kitts.
