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

after a lovely sleep - housekeeping & all that jazz

thanks so much for the warm welcome home! I did have a wonderful time though and there is so much to tell. I am not sure how to go about it without having a long rambling post...so please be patient til I work out how I will do it.
I have visited many blogs since getting up and there is alot to catch up on - can't wait!
obviously we have had torrential rain here - my garden is out of control and it seems like the garden is very moist with some of my mulch being washed off the garden bed. I hope to re mulch this week so that I can trap all that moisture in the ground. Last night when I arrived home, there was a little frog sitting on my step * I got quite excited about that as frogs are on the decline here & having a frog means that my garden is healthy and balanced. I have already been out in the garden this morning, pottering - lots to do !! the parrots have destroyed my apple crop unfortunately but there should be enough to make one apple pie.
loads & loads of washing and I will attack that methodically over the next few days. shopping to do as I am like Old Mother Hubbard right now - my cupboards are completely bare. I can't wait to see my grandsons, I have a few little bits for them from my trip.
as much as it is fun to go away, isn't it odd, just how lovely it is to come home to our nest? to walk in the door and sigh - *ahh, I am home*

I sometimes think we go away just to experience the sheer bliss of coming home...
Glad you are back safe and sound hon!

It's lovely to go away, but even lovelier to come home again. Sometimes I think it's good to get away, just so you can appreciate your wonderful nest even more!

You just need a few days to get all situated. Takes time to get back in the homey routines.

As Kali says...it will all get done!

hellooooooo!!!! welcome back! I think I saw your ship going sailing - what was the name of it?

oh yep it is such a nice feeling to come home, even if your home is a new one like mine is!

Belated welcome home. I, like others, had been thinking you were due home, and there you were. I missed you. The ship sounds wonderful and you sound very relaxed. Just take you time with the housework and other bits and peices - the is no point wearing yourself out, it will all get done in time.

So good to have you back online Robyn!

Yes I know exactly what you mean I also love coming home after a vacation, everything in the house seems wonderful and kind of new but also familar, enjoy the feeling!
Oh those cheeky parrots! It's so crazy for me to think that you really have exotic birds like parrots in your apple tree. Well frogs on the other hand are quite normal here. Oh yes there is always lots of work to keep up with in the garden while doing a vacation in the summer season. Just do it step by step.

Another crazy thing is that at the moment we have 50 degrees C difference. It's - 10 degrees here today brrrrrrrrrrrrr
