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

those voices in my head !!

4am this morning my mind was buzzing with swaps, Christmas and things I had to do.... so I tossed & turned * willing myself to try to get at least another hour & a half sleep * I thought of getting up and writing a list of all that was going through my mind but I didn't - telling myself that I would remember in the morning. At 6.30am I jumped up out of bed, grabbed a scrap of paper and pen and guess what? All I could remember was that I had to buy Christmas cards for the swap....
so I have just put a gorgeous little notebook next to my bedside table (Alison @ Brocantehome sent it to me awhile back), with a pen and I am going to write things down during the night whenever I need to. I have brainstorms sometimes - designing things and getting tremendous ideas only to have them float off somewhere never to be thought of again. The theory is, if I write it down, I will get off to sleep again and wake up with all my tremendous ideas in the notebook. that is of course if I can read the writing that I did when half asleep and without my glasses

It's it annoying to have ideas & then not be able to remember them. I hope now that you have your notebook that you will never miss and idea in the night again.

it really does help when you do that, it is a way for your mind to release what it's thinking about and let you get back to sleep - it works!

I have heard of that before, they say it's great to have a notebook and pen beside your bed. Like a journal. You can write what ever is on your mind, list, ideas, thoughts.
So, did you ever remember the rest..LOL
I am so forgetful it drives me crazy and my husband too,sometimes.

I have a notebook too, it's really an artists sketchbook, that stays right by my bedside. Just yesterday I was in the middle of a math lesson with Hannah and this idea for a Christmas ornament popped into my head. I ran and got my book, made a little sketch, took a deep breath (ha!) and got back to H.'s math! Those little books are life savers, how ever you use them!
