Hello my Dears, Happy Equinox!

We are offically into autumn now, and we have been full of equinox colds here, but dispite that we’ve been harvesting lots of blackberrys, beans, courgettes, tomatoes, pack choi, kale and making chutneys, jams, kale chips and juices! The winter stores are in the cupboard 🙂

I want to thank all of you who share our website and mention us on blogs, it really helps small businesses get out there! We are actively looking for more shops (on line and in the high street) to wholesale our products, so if you’d like to see them in your local health food shop or baby shop (they go well next to the cloth nappies!) do put them in touch with us, or us in touch with them! Or maybe you run an online shop yourself and might like to test having an SanPro line of stock on there? Drop me a line for a chat hello@moontimes.co.uk

I’ve been writing a blog post for Lucy at the Happy Womb- She’s aptly called it “Blood and Milk – Self-Care for Breastfeeding Mamas who are Menstruating” I explore how we navigate our cycle when in the intense relationship of breastfeeding! See www.happywomb.com to read the full post.

I had a bit of a sort out of our fabrics are realised we have far too much black organic fairtrade fabric – so we are selling off a load- contact me to buy some! (£6.50 a metre, 120cm width RRP £8 a metre, will do discount for more than 3 metres!)

I’ve been doing on line business courses from Leonie Dawsons website and she has announced that she’s increasing her membership fees from $199 to $495 on October 1st, to reflect all the new business material she’s added. I can honestly say using her tools has changed and improved my business.

It was soooo exciting to completely run out of my Menarche books- but don’t worry the are now back in stock! I’ve had some lovely feedback from mums and dads I wanted to share with you-

“I just wanted to say thank you for your book. I wanted to share with my daughter who is only 7 (8 in a few weeks) but is growing pubic hair and breasts and having mood swings, spots and tummy ache cyclically. I was reading it in the car with her after school today while waiting for her brother to come on the bus and began to cry, I did not know it would affect me like that. My poor daughter asked why i was crying and i explained i did not have a mum so i had no one to talk to when i started my periods and we hugged and cried together. She loves the book as she has been feeling alone with things changing in her body so early. So Thank you for this special resource that is perfect for her even though she is so young”. Lizzie, Midwife and mother xxx

“Inspiring book. Recommended reading for all young women. This is a beautiful book written with great passion and a sprinkling of magic.” Dan

“Compulsory reading for mums of teenage daughters – I read this book in a day – taking notes and making plans for some way to celebrate with my daughter – and for myself. Highly recommend – beautiful shares moving the reader through the book, inspiring connections and recognition of the way our parents handled the onset of menarche and the damage we have struggled with to reconnect to our power. thank you Rachael” S Collins

“A must read for any mother and daughter ***** 5 stars -because I quite simply loved reading it! I read it from cover to cover in one very long sitting…and didn’t feel like i wanted to put it down. I thought the book was written in a very friendly conversational manner that a youngster must appreciate…. but not at all condescending. Rachael Hertogs use of language is welcoming and informative. I only wish I had read it sooner…. or that my Mum had read it when I was coming of age. The book contains practical advice and real life stories from not just Rachael but from the many grand mothers, mothers, daughters, aunties, sisters etc that she interviewed. I have much gratitude for Rachael and her work. This is definitely a must read for any female….. or actually…. any male who’d like to understand more the female cycle.” Rachel

“Power to all women! This is a fabulous book exploring the history of celebrating menarche, and some ideas for looking at this part of puberty in a positive and empowering way with our daughters.” Wendy
