At the risk of sounding just a teeny bit weird I was very excited to see that the Winter Spice washing up liquid is back on the shelves in Sainsbury's.
I love it.
Does anyone else use this?
Does anyone love the scent of it as much as I do?
I stockpile so I have enough to keep me going until at least the end of January.
It smells of winter cosiness.
It smells of Christmas.
There I've said it.
We haven't got to Halloween yet and I've mentioned Christmas.
I can't help myself.
And seeing as I've bought it up I'm going to carry on with it for the rest of this post.
You see this washing up liquid and a recently discovered poem has given me an idea for a silly Secret Santa gift.
Or maybe a gift for the person who has everything.
Or maybe for that person for whom you struggle with ideas for each year.
Purchase one bottle of Winter Spice washing up liquid, a pair of those festive novelty washing up gloves to be found in Poundland's up and down the country at this time of year and a suitably Christmassy tea towel.
Write this poem out onto a tag and hang from the neck of the washing up bottle.
It's time for Christmas and
You deserve the best...
A gift unlike all the rest
We thought a new car or fancy cruise,
But decided on something
You could actually use.
At last we found a little gift
You can admire:
Please enjoy your new
WASHER and DRYER!
You may even get some help with the washing up afterwards if you're lucky, especially if you included a sweet treat for them to enjoy once the chore was done.
