Moving Sale

Moving Sale A5

Moving with the winds

As many of you will know The Honeyclock has been for sale since February.  Our buyer doesn’t seem to have found their way to us just yet however we are still hopeful they are on their way.  In the mean time we have discovered we will need to vacate our current premises and so our last trading day in our current light filled shop will be Saturday 14 June, that’s about 6 weeks away.
If you are not on our mailing list or our ‘friend’ on Facebook, or following our ‘blog’ and you want to stay up to date with where we move to please send us your email address and we can add you to our ‘moving notification’ list and keep you fully informed and up to date with our movements.
In the meantime make sure you come in and see us and stock up on all your favourite goodies while stocks last

How do you celebrate Christmas?

How do you celebrate Christmas in your family?  When you become parents, you get an opportunity to think about this in a different way.  What traditions from your own childhood do you carry forward?  Are there things you want to do differently?  It dawns on you that you are creating your children’s memories – and the urge to make Christmas special and meaningful burns brightly.

Getting together with family – sharing food and gifts and time together – feature in most people’s picture.  Can we call this ‘honey time’? Time that is sweet and fluid and oh so nourishing.

But it’s not all sweetness and light, is it? It can turn out to be a very stressful time of the year.   Getting together with family often opens old wounds and there are so many things happening at this time of year that it can get a bit much: the school year finishes, summer holidays need to be prepared for, office parties, neighbourhood gatherings, Christmas cards to send, baking and gift buying… It can be a time of contradictions.

Here at The Honeyclock, we wish for you some sweet honey time.  Relaxed, stress-free, uncomplicated.  Some time to connect with your dear ones and nourish yourself.  We wish for you a lovely break!

And, if you’re still not quite ready for Christmas or stocked up on your Dr Hauschka or cleaning needs for the three weeks we will be closed, pop in to The Honeyclock this week and see us!  Our latest newsletter  gives you a brief overview of our shop and some of what we have to offer you this Christmas…

Newly born

This month we are experiencing the birth of many bundles of newly born beauty as mothers who have recently given birth bring their lovely new children into our shop.  Lying, sleeping, nestled in their mothers arms, these children evoke a different pace in us as we stop in our tasks to watch them.  Serenely they lie, delicately they radiate an energy we have not felt for a long time that makes our hearts swell.  We see their long fingers and tiny finger nails, their red feet with toes pointing in all directions, their peacefully closed eyes with long lashes or their red faces as they slowly screw them up ready to share with us their voices.  We talk gently and quietly and we share experiences of birthing, siblings, mothering and the differences that come with each individual person into this world.
