My Photo
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

'tis the silly season

yes * we all know that it is nearly Christmas * so let's be silly !!

this is a photo taken at Christmas * we had just given my mum a t-shirt with this printed on the front:

'I helped fight the Warrimoo fires'

you see, the year before was an horrific bush fire season * the whole of the Blue Mountains was affected * at one stage the fire was in our town although on the other side of the highway and in about 3 gullies away.

we were in China at the time and my mum & dad were minding our house and they panicked. They packed everything ! and I mean everything - well almost - they packed wire coathangers but not treasured toys * they packed plates but not whole sets * boxes and boxes of stuff. The fire burnt out and we came home.

To all our belongins packed into removalist boxes. Yes, I was angry.

the next year the bushfire brigade has these t*shirts made and we just had to give mum one!! that is one of the Christmas's that we laugh about now!

love my mum!!

Wow! I think a bush fire of that magnitude would have sent me packing to! Bless her heart...she took care of your things after a fashion..= ). Isn't it good to be able to laugh at things in looking back on them, that were upsetting at the time!

She so meant well! Time always goes by and puts things in perspective.

Looks like you were having lots of fun!!!
