My Photo
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 is what happens while you're busy making other plans

remember the bath, home-made pizza and movie that I had planned for Sunday night? well - that didn't happen. Instead, I spent the night in emergency dept. of our local hospital. My dear sweet husband, had a motor bike accident and his wrist is broken. He has to have a pin put in sometime this week and has a plaster on which will be part of our life for at least 8 weeks. Worse thing is that it is his right hand and he is a builder.... so now we have to work out who is going to do his work for him. He also has a gash on his shin that they couldn't stitch as it has a huge chunk out of it. He is so lucky that he is alive as it was a head on with a car ( he was in the right) and his guardian angels were definately watching over him yesterday
I grew up around the speedway- seeing many accidents resulting in either death or severe disablities and I was not in favour of my dear buying a bike. Needless to say, after this ...he is selling the bike.

Oh Robyn, I am so sorry. Thank God that he is alive and will recover, when the outcome could have been much worse. My best wishes go to your husband and you and all the family. I hope that he doesn't lose too much work and that his commitments can be covered satisfactorily.

Oh ROBYN! I really and truly feel for you; Ken has had bikes all his adult life and still rides his Honda 750, but now only in fine weather. (I used to have bikes too, but sold the last one when I couldn't afford to keep both bike and car). Ken has not had a serious accident (touch wood) but has had some close shaves and my heart has jumped up into my mouth on many occasions. As a bus driver, he would also be out of work if anything serious happened, so again, we both sympathise with you and your husband. Hugs to both of you!
