Beautifully restored house in the Serrania de Ronda
My thought for the day
Located near Galle on a working tea estate. Pokkuluwa Kanda estate grows tea, cinnamon, pepper and fruit and teeming with exotic birds, peacocks and monkeys. It is situated 800 feet above sea level just 10kms from Galle and has views to the sea in one direction and jungle in others. Beautifully designed and offering complete luxury with extensive living and dining areas, six double bedrooms, large infinity swimming pool.This villa is definitely on my bucket list of places to go on holiday and a great place to meet up with some friends for perhaps a reunion or special occasion.
Spring is upon us, my favourite time of the year, everything starts to come alive again, animals shred their coats ready for the warmer months and we start shredding our layers of clothes exposing our pale and weathered beaten skins to the elements.
It's the time of the year we think about buffing, waxing and polishing our bodies, and we may even decide to re-decorate our homes, new beginnings.
Natural deodoriser, Open up those windows, get the fresh air in. Baking soda is ideal for soaking up odours, sprinkle on sofas and carpets before you vacuum, great for getting rid of cat and dog odours.
Room freshener go natural grab a few bottles of essential oils and make your own. All you’ll need is a pump spray bottle, some distilled water and whatever combination of oils you prefer much nicer than those artificial ones. Use an oil burner to freshen up your home.
Lemon is great for hygienically cleaning surfaces that can’t go in the dishwasher (e.g. wooden chopping boards). Simply cut the lemon in half and scrub, also helps to freshen up your fridge and get rid of those unpleasant smells, leave a cut lemon on the shelf for a couple of days. Or better still make some limoncello!
GET SPRING READYAnother great way of getting rid of unwanted smells and bad energy in your home is a smudge stick which is made of a bundle of dried herbs, you can find these in natural health stores usually or alternative shops.
