Best week ever!!

Best week ever!! Wow – what a week!  Last week something quite amazing happened to my business – I went viral!!  Ok, well, when I say I went viral – more than a room full of people (over 9000!!) sat up and took notice and now ever since it’s all just been pretty hectic – blissfully hectic!  Last week I visited the newly opened “Bare Necessities” Zero Waste Shop that has just opened in Wareham, Dorset – and Wowzers – […]
