Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

life ~ July 27

oh boy, did I have a lazy day yesterday ! I did a few loads of washing & had all intentions of generally tidying up around the home * putting things away & those other bits and pieces that can sometimes be forgotten in the daily grind.... however, a phone call early morning had me meeting a friend for coffee ~ which turned into a two hour chat, supporting each other with our teenage daughter hissy fits... we parted at lunch time, both feeling much better after our chatting. I came home ~ had a sandwich and read a book that I just can't put down and stayed on my lounge, under a quilt reading until 3 in the afternoon, while the wind howled outside ~ totally decadent....
the book ~ *A Tuesday thing by Kate Shayler * a true story of a woman who grew up in an orphanage. This is a follow up of her first book *the long way home* Kate Shayler
next Tuesday, I am actually having this lady over for morning tea..... I am so excited !

Very interested to read about Kate Shayler. I have read both of her books. Her style of writing lets you know how she feels from inside; it's not just a statement of facts. One of my Writing Group ladies writes like that and her stories are so moving.

Glad you had such wonderfully indulgent day.

Aren't friends the loveliest? I spent 3 hours at my friend's home over the weekend. She has one of those sweet, vintage, neat-as-a-pin, shabby chic homes that begs you to sit and stay a while. We looked at all of her goodies, had coffee, ranted about our men and generally had a wonderful time! I need more days like that.......

That sounds absolutely amazing. A special tea....how wonderful!

I'll have to look out for her books. I've never heard of them, but love hearing about books that just rivet you to the chair.
