It has been pretty quiet, as I am travelling non-stop last year and my shops activities were at their lowest. I will be travelling intensively this year and toward year end I will have covered most areas I want to, so that is the plan at the moment.
Note to Dianne, Frederick and Odette, please read my message and reply to me, I am not able to ship your order until 30/03/2023. You maybe able to get these items from someone else faster, I am shipping from Europe, the item will get to you mid April 2023, if you wait for me to ship.
I am grateful to wonderful people who waited for me to ship the last 2 shipments and I am wishing all of us a very Prosperous, very Happy New Year and a wonderful life🙏💕
Time is flying and 30 Dec approaching fast. I am truly grateful to amazing people/clients in my life who trust me to ship their items after a very long period of my vacation, it is more than word can express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to you ALL.
Many things in the UK now have gone bit wonky to say the least, consuming products, cost of raw materials, energy, services, postal & shipping services, courier companies are affecting my minute & tiny business, and a lot more commercials enterprises in immeasurable manners. All of these could not have happened in a better time – Brexit, Corona pandemic and the war in Ukraine.
Please be so kind as to note, from now on I am shipping once monthly, either you procure your items from this store, etsy or ebay all will be shipped every 4 weeks. Also you can ask me anything you want about my product/item. Most items have a non-return policy, please be conscious of that before you add it to the shopping cart. All perishable products are non-return: tinctures, capsules, oil, salve, powder.
I had hard times working out with PayPal to refund/cancel orders, when the orders came via PayPal. As a receiver of fund there is no button to press cancel/refund, after a certain period, PayPal allows the receiver to cancel/refund. These were so annoying and frustrating during the period I was away for 10 weeks, as I had to cancel lots and lots of orders from this store. on Etsy and Ebay platform, one can just press cancel orders. Please be aware of the process and shipping time, if you are not prepare to wait, please order from someone else.
Many apologies to Salim (the package with green ruler) who waited for me for 7 weeks and I was not able to ship the item to him in United Arab Emirates, when I was back in the UK. I used to ship regularly to that region. I am not fighting with anything beyond my control, just have to accept the current limitation, refund the client with a thousand apologies.
I was home for 10 days to process and ship, and orders start stacking up again, and am grateful for your kindness, trust and constant support. With Love & Gratitude,
I am truly grateful for all of you who are waiting for me 🙏 and I am going to very busy when I get back home 😜. My mother was not able to visit us in Europe and the UK since the pandemic set in 2020, basically 3 years now for her being alone, and I planned to visit her for 6 weeks to arrange paperworks and it turns out to be 12 weeks.
The above is the banner for my shops, just manage to put it together, they are on my Etsy stores and the Ebay one I do not know how to put banner yet. Any question and enquiry please contact me email@example.com
This is end of sailing season for Thames Sailing Barge. The Colne River Race was on 3 September 2022 on most beautiful day. The Edme took the trophy home this year, last year it was our Majorie. Enjoy the scenes of smacks and barges on this lovely day.
The Majorie won the Southend Barge Match 28 August, marking the 55th traditional boat match, and it was first race after the corona.
Love & Gratitude to all my lovely clients, you may all have heard already yesterday we lost of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II – May Her Majesty the Queen Rest In Peace 🙏
The Thames Match took place in mid June, started and finished at Gravesend, we did not win the race, the Blue Mermaid did.
One of our crews, Rachel, professional photographer, took all these wonderful photos, and the one without focus and not proportional sizes are mine 😂. I was off the race in between – The Swale and hopefully to be on board again this weekend in Ipswich – the Pinmill Race.
It is important to note that all clients from the UK should get your items from this shop and or on CanveyShop, as you will not be liable for tax. Thank you for your attention. Also in between the race I am spending time with family during Summer in Spain and it is very long time for each shipment, as I am not home and mostly at sea, as Autumn comes this interruption will be minimum.
I got home yesterday after a long long day and pretty exhausting, managed to get filtered one of my tincture and bottled it.
Just out of the blue, I got up this morning and cut my hair about 10cm off – that feels great for once 😂 when I filtered my tincture last night, my hair clip broke, and a bunch of hair fell through my shower cape. It was pretty annoying as I could not do anything as both of my hands are gloved while working with tincture before it was sealed and bottled. It is not a good thing to work when one was tired.
These are items that out of stock/sold out now: Banju, Seamoss plus, eva salve, Liver tonic, Kidney tonic and Lymphalin. Turmeric capsule is also out of stock here as well, I was not able to secure good amount of fresh turmeric mother bulbs. If anyone of you would like these items, then wait till mid June please and these will be shipped from England. I am here still for another week, other tincture still available.
It was my first time to use blabla car, and we barely communicating as my Spanish is rubbish, I used google translate on my phone before speaking to the man – well technology works, in this case, in a desparate situation 😂
Thank you so much, have a great weekend with friends and family,
Berlin (dpa)- Most state Covid restrictions on everyday life were dropped in large parts of Germany on Sunday. Though infection rates remain high, the new nationwide legal framework provides for only a few general protective measures. In almost all federal states, masks are now mandatory only in doctors’ surgeries, nursing homes, hospitals, buses and trains, while tests are still required in schools, for example. Nationwide, masks still have to be worn on long-distance trains and aeroplanes. Regardless of government regulations, companies, shops and other institutions can continue to maintain regulations such as mandatory mask wearing according to their in-house rules. The federal government has justified its decision to scrap most of the measures by saying that the country’s health system is not overburdened and that stricter rules can still be enacted regionally in case of emergency (source: https://www.deutschland.de/en/news/coronavirus-in-germany-information)
With regard to me personally, there are lots going on but nothing has been posted on my blog, I only do it when I feel like it.
Nothing more exciting than the sailing seasons now is coming and the thought of it making me feel floating and bobbing up and down the Thames already. Therefore, this is a special note to all my buddies in Europe, so that I don’t have to email each individually, to reduce your import duties you can place your order now, if you think of items you would like in the next 6 months as I am going to be based in the UK again, for sailing purposes, and the shipping time will be dramatically delay every 10 days or more. However the import duties does not affect my clients outside the EU or in the UK 😂, only delay in shipping – also this applies to shipping to the UK clients.
I am going to be in Spain for a ritual full moon walk in Easter, Pink moon they call it, it will be my first time into a deep valley and out again with all the elders in a tiny village in Andalucia. I can manage only Hola & Buenos días till now. The flight tickets are expensive, fuel surcharge and all that, mochas gracias to Mr. Putin.
Lady, when I met you there was peace unknown I set foot on you with a fine mood on Soon I was soft inside There was something going on
You do something to me that I can’t explain Hold me dearer and I feel no pain Every beat of my heart We got something going on
Tender love is blind It requires a dedication All this love we feel needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah ha Taking care of each other ah ha
Sailing barge on the Thames That is what you are No one in between How can we be wrong? Sail away with me (on the Majorie) To another world And we rely on each other, ah ha From one lover to another, ah ha
I can’t live without you if the love was gone Everything is nothing if you got no one And I did walk in the night Slowly losing sight of myself But that won’t happen to me now I am too deep in love with you and I got no way out And the message is clear Next could be the year for the real thing (2022)
No more will I cry Lady, I will take care of you forever We start and end as one In love forever We can love each other, ah ha
Sailing barge on the Thames That is what you are No one in between How can we be wrong? Sail away with me (on the Majorie) To another world (hopefully to Amsterdam) And we rely on each other, ah ha From one lover to another, ah ha
Sail away Oh, come sail away with me

With Love and Gratitude to the skipper (the gentlemen with the radio in the slide, the owner of the Majorie) and his lovely family, the 2nd skipper (the gentlemen who released the anchor chain, owner of Adieu in the docks) and his lady, allowing me to experience wonderful, blissful love at sea and on the Thames. The most wonderful time ever since I set foot in England.
Lady Majorie now is in her Winter berth at St. Katharine Docks till next sailing season May 2022. I hope to be in the service to the Lady in painting, oiling, polishing and other maintenance work. It was an absolute pleasure and no other place i would rather be other than, I loved every minute, at sea on that wooden barge. My secrete lover now is safe in central London, under guardianship of St. Katharine – What a place!
We were fortunate to secure the victory of the last race this season – Thames Sailing Barge Majorie won 2 prizes – The Winner of the Thames Sailing Barge Colne River Race and The Best Seamanship at Brightlingsea England. The sailing and racing season this year started at its usual season May – September annually, during the lock-down period last year all events were stopped. I came back to England to join the sailing in mid July, at first leg of international travels easing with reasonable flights, though I paid heavily on tests and tests in and out of England to Europe and back. However, the sailing season worth every penny – life is beautiful and exciting.
I haven’t done anything with update shipping, though this Summer all of my clients endured the waiting game while I am travelled and at sea so frequently – I am grateful for your patience and kindness to allow my shipping time delayed this season and, am grateful for your lovely feedback on my product. Life has been good to me and I hope to all of you as well, my clients and public alike.
It is getting late over here by the time I finished my day’s work and editing and uploading this video.
I have sent out a couple of mails with regards to July sales on this store (www.corehealthandinnerbeauty.com), as I am heading back to my place in the UK, to bottle lots of tinctures. Before I left London 5-6 months ago, I made lots of tinctures and by now they are ready and I will be overflow with tincture at my home in the UK, hopefully some mails get through and some sales come along. 5% coupon (J5SD85GE98QA) and 10% coupon (0EGTDK83PHM4).
With flight booked and PCR test booked for mid July and finger crossed, that I won’t have to scrap my flight. Pretty exciting to get back to the UK, local yacht club where I live is hosting dinner and ballroom dancing – I am so excited. Also Ms. Mills, my piano teacher would be pleased to have this clumsy student back in her living room. However, the most important Sailing! on the Thames – Expose to the elements and open sea as well – Feel so good to be alive. My PCR test must be negative and there is a small chance that the UK government may scrap quarantine rules 🙏😂🙏
With apologies to my clients and viewers who come across by blog. My video editing skills are really good that I placed the second half in the first of this clip.
I started with an introduction to wrapping and packaging my boxes, then prepared shipping labels and finishing all that and ready for posting. As it turned out, I reversed the two clips and put them together back to front.
The good news is, I managed to get to the post office and be on time for the last collection for today, and I am relaxing with my feet up with hot chocolate like most people, as tomorrow is 1st May 2021, and I am looking forward to what May unfolds for us. My first experience of lock-down was in the UK 22nd March 2020, and now we come full circle of 1 year – there was and are still so much fear of the pandemic.
Let’s look forward to what beautiful May brings us – birds, insects, flowers, rains, rainbows and economic crashing, as Britain suppose to open its door to the world as of 14 May, and what is Europe up to then?
Have a beautiful break 1 May international holiday (we have been on fear holiday over a year already!) and a wonderful weekend, with Love & Gratitude to all of us 🙏
