Name:
Location: Culburra Beach , NSW, Australia

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 ~ September 27


an early spring clean today
*just one room and that is ms*sophies
~ she is home for spring holidays
and what better time for mum & daughter quality time together
cleaning out THAT wardrobe !!
strip the bed * vacuum the mattress and spray with lavender water
leave to dry while I tackle the rest of her room
clean windows inside & out
sort through winter clothes
to be washed, stored for summer
or given to St.Vinnies
then open those wardrobe doors
have a hissy fit
start tossing while muttering under my breath
ms*sophie will head for the hills
and a few hours later, I will emerge
* triumphant!!
finished spring cleaning her room
for yet another year
Then I can make the bed
and putter around her room
* maybe light a few little candles
and a spring posy to make it special
....ahh teenage daughters
- ya gotta love 'em

I sure miss helping my daughters clean and rearrange their rooms... they grow up much too fast.

I loved this post ~ brought a giggle to my lips! I just love the visuals.
It also reminded me of what my Mum must have felt like when she had to face my bedroom (eekkk!)
