Treading the scented cobbles of Coronation Street

by Marian Bendeth, 29th October, 2018

When it comes to childhood memories, most kids hunker down on Saturday morning watching their favourite cartoons or goofy sitcoms but for me, it has been the ultimate UK soap, Coronation Street to turn to. From childhood to yesterday's cliffhanger, I have tuned in religiously to watch a multitude of characters land, live out, die and even outlast other characters. There is nothing better than watching those characters treading the cobbles to that famous trumpeted-theme song which now also happens to be my signature ring tone, I’m that addicted.

I’ll gleefully give anything a try, and enjoy the process even if the end result leaves something to be desired. So when I was asked to review Homemade Perfume by Anya McCoy, my crafter’s heart did a somersault – perfumery! One of the two crafts I’ve always wanted to try but haven’t quite found the opportunity! (The other is taxidermy, which would be an altogether very different review).
