Robyn, I am your mother
Since 3rd time is the charm, I let my very dear Mummy write a blog post for my 3rd piece.
This could’ve ended badly, since I’ve made messes all over her farm and house with mugs, plates, soap and stickers for the past few months… All is well.
Hi, I’m Robyn’s mum and I just wanted to say how impressed and proud I am about her launching this business.
She’s researched and investigated so many processes and ingredients for her soap making until she’s got it just right. Her tenacity (yes she gets that from me) has shown right through with such determination to succeed that I’m convinced that her business will be a success and testament to all of her hard work.
Life hasn’t been easy for Robyn, she had four types of epilepsy that was diagnosed when she was ten. It is controlled by medication (lots of it) but it can still impact massively on her life.
She still attended mainstream school, achieved the best A Level Grades her school had ever had, attended university getting a First-Class Honours degree, lived by herself in Amsterdam for six months on a placement, then got a job with Miele living and working in Oxford.
Her ‘Can Do’ attitude has been her motto throughout her life, encouraged by the whole family (yes we have had our moments), and now she’s home, furloughed but hasn’t been bored, she decided to use this opportunity to start her own business.
We have all learned so much about soap, never washed our hands so much even with the Government directive, but have all mucked in and helped, choosing photos, colours, voted on names for soaps and helped where we can and now it’s being launched I hope you love it as much as we do.
