I have 4 bags for the chazzer sat on the floor of the kitchen. Tonight they are going in the boot to deliver tomorrow. I have had them in one spot or another for about 2 months...:eek:

We have never used shower gel but I agree with you ivy. Last year I took an excema reaction which is apparently common after a bereavement. We stopped using bubble bath which at first was just odd and horrible lying in our weekly bath treat but without bubbles. The other week we decided to try using it again and independently we both felt slimy and yucky after the bath. I really hadn't noticed before the layer of 'product' for want of a better word, that was left on our skin. And we always had a sploosh down with the shower after the bath to wash off lingering bubbles so i wold have thought that wold have cleaned it off. That must all be getting gunged off on the towel afterward. Yucky yuck. We have gone back to just plain water again.

On a slight tangent, has anyone else read The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning? I got it from the library and it's rather good, a slender and thoughtful volume, not at all morbid.

Thanks again for the new thread. I have always used soap bars, but have found it harder to find ones I like as more people move to the liquid soap. I am still using up a lifetime supply of bubble bath that mum bought and didn't like using, so passed to me when I helped her move. I am using it as hand wash for the builders so it seems to be used relatively quickly!
A thought on surroundings. We are living in temporary accommodation while our house gets some essentials -roof, Windows, a safe electrical supply, and when we moved here life was very busy and boxes were dumped anywhere, piled up in any space, and I hated, really hated being here, but didn't know what to do. My wonderful best friend visited a couple of weeks ago, and took charge in reorganising things,I now have a lounge area, most of a spare room and a kitchen without boxes, it's made a fantastic difference, and I actually found myself saying I was going 'home' the other day. I am also far less stressed. No boxes were unpacked but it's more spacious. We also identified 3/4 boxes of odds and ends for me to sort and make choices about, which means I feel back in control of the clutter.
