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.

day to day living during the Christmas season

yesterday was my Christmas shopping day !
however at first nothing went to plan.
you see, last weekend, I went to the movies.
a gorgeous little family owned cinema and after each movie they hand out some kind of lolly (or candy as some call it).
This particular night they handed out minties, which is a chewy mint flavoured lolly.
So I popped it into my mouth and went along my merry little way.
However, I felt something hard in the middle and knowing full well, that minties are soft -
I realized that a filling had come out of my tooth.
Weekends, dentists aren't open here - so first thing Monday morning I called the dentist and the first available appointment was December 19th
but she would put me on the cancellation list.
So I went along my merry little way - planning for Christmas.
Thursday was going to be my day where I went shopping for the bulk of my gifts as well as a few traditions that I have done for years.......
Wednesday afternoon the dentist called and of course they had a cancellation on Thursday, did I want it?
of course I did !!! and seeing it was a 9am appt. I thought I could get the drilling and filling over with and off I would go shopping.
but no -
Thursday dawned and I went to fill the jug to make a cup of tea and no water !!!
a broken water main which wouldn't be fixed for at least 4 hours so I had to have a shower at my son's place. quickly got all my stuff together, raced around to my son's, had a shower, came home, gulped my breakfast down and off ms*sophie and I went.
arrived at the dentist's and two needles later, I had the tooth filled. Nothing to chew for four hours. My face and right side of my head continued to get numb for hours after. I often wonder if there is anyone in the world, who, when facing a visit to the dentist - just can't wait. I hate it........
so finally the girls and I hit the shops * lunched and got lots of fun stuff.
......the crowds weren't too bad til later in the afternoon and I came home relieved that most of my shopping is done
- ready to be wrapped in brown paper & ................
tied with red ribbon for the festive season!

Robyn,well I am glad the rest of the day went well!!
Oh how I dread the dentist! You'd think a big girl like me could handle it but I always end up with a horrible tension headache from stressing myself out ~ I really hate that numb feeling...
