My Photo
Name:
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

housekeeping ~ August 29

after doing minimal housework last week, today I really needed to get in and do the bedrooms & bathrooms. This weekend coming is the bridal shower and it is being held here, at our home, so I want to give the house a mini spring clean ( the real one will be in mid-late September)..So today, I threw the bedroom doors open , stripped the sheets and cleaned like a mad woman. Fresh air as well as spraying copious amounts of lavender water around really made a difference to the staleness of the bedroom.....it's amazing how sick a house can feel when the inhabitants are suffering from coughs & colds. I also washed all the towels and sheets as well as getting the whites done.... I have decided against trying to change to tea tree oil for cleaning the bathroooms - it is just not a 'smell' that I enjoy, it actually makes me quite nauseous...so I am sticking to my tried and true lavender oil.
I also gave our front verandah a good tidy up... the day was glorious and I really can feel spring stirring in my soul.
and to top a wonderful day off - I went for a long walk this afternoon - delightful! Dads & sons out riding pushbikes, elderly people pottering in their garden - all of them smiling as I walked past... I love living here.

So would I, Robyn - love living there, I mean. Are there any houses for sale up there? As nice as my street probably looks in my photos, we have a lot of hoons around here which completely spoil the otherwise pleasant atmosphere. For those readers who live overseas and might not understand the expression 'hoons' - it refers to teenage boys driving noisy cars and bikes at dangerous speeds, usually with VERY loud music going...although the term music is used very loosely in this instance!
