“Ne’er cast a clout till May be out”


You may have heard the old saying ‘Ne’er cast a clout till May be out’. It’s been in use since at least the 18th century. A clout is an old word for a piece of clothing.

Some people think ‘May’ refers to the month but others take it to mean the May flower or hawthorn. The tree flowers in late April or early May.

In other words, the old saying means don’t take your warm clothes off until the May blossom is out because cold weather can return during the spring months which is so often the case at this time of year. But it has to be said, I’ve never had such a good tan this early in the year and quite frankly, during this crazy period of lockdown mania, I for one am not keeping my winter woolies on when the sun is out!!!

I miss my clients, I miss the calm that is my treatment room, I miss the structure that it gave to my days, I miss painting pretty toes, and massaging away tension and anxiety, but at the same time I also hope and pray that everyone I treat is fit and well and I send my love to all.

I have been touched by the kindness of my clients, the VIP’S continuing to pay their subscription, even though I am unable to see them. Today I had a client pay for her regular treatment, just to make sure I didn’t go out of business… Many of you have purchased the roll on blends that I manufactured in the comfort of my own home, every little helps and it’s reawakened my love for essential oils.

I am taking the opportunity to freshen up my treatment room and I’m even considering a stock take, who knows, crazier things have happened. Rest assured however that I will be back, I can’t wait, I shall be ready and working as many hours as the day will allow, in the meantime take care, stay safe and remember to breathe.

Mindfully Yours
