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

mother of the bride

well, yes I have to 'fess up.
Melissa said I am due to have a hair-raising day.
Well the past week or so, I havent been sleeping very well,
my skin is breaking out

and I absolutely hate my hair.

I definately don't want to go to the city today
I just want to stay home and finish getting my home into order.
We had a new bed delivered yesterday for ms*sophie that has to be put together
it has been raining all week and my washing is backing up down the street
and around the corner
My verandah is a huge mess with all the bags to go to St.Vinnies

...... and I absolutely hate my hair.

But I am the matriarch of this family
I inherited that job years ago and I will soldier on
and probably have a complete meltdown on the day of the wedding
which won't be good.

and did I tell you I hate my hair???

You'll hang in there beautifully ~ just like you know how. You all will get through, and in 9 days time will have a HUGE sigh of relief! One day at a time, just leave all the things that can wait til after the wedding and do the bare minimum til then. As dolly said just keep on swimmin' ~ we are all cheering you on. HUGE HUGS, Kali xx

I know weddings are stressful but you will cope, your hair will be wonderful, the bride radiant and all will be well with the world. Who cares about the washing - just do the esentials. In the mean time, enjoy a block of choccie, read a magzine, put your feet up for 10 minutes and remember no one will ever know about the things that you didn't do/forgot/or didn't work the way you wanted. They will all think you are marvellous and that it was a fantastic day. Hugs and best wishes to you and the bride to be for your special day.
