I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

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!
