'Thank you so much for making our day yesterday at Quintessentially English so truly special. We all enjoyed our time with you and your patience at watching our skills develop, whilst making the day entertaining and fun. We enjoyed our meal at the Angel and making the bath bombs in the afternoon. You then made my day complete with cupcakes and fizz as well as providing us with some lovely delights to take away! Thank you for allowing Suzannah to take her soap (complete with mould) so she could take this with her back to Oz...yet another kindness. Thank you too for the starter kit...well...the "thank you's" are endless as we all had such a happy and relaxed day!'
