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

day to day life on board

let me begin by telling you about how scrumptious the ship was.The Statendam ~ a virtual 5 star floating hotel. Chandeliers everywhere, fresh flowers wherever you turned. 5 restaurants - including an award winning a-la-carte. Pianos and a two-storey stage theatre plus a cinema that seated about 100. An art gallery and a casino. There was a library with lots of books *music-chairs where you sat in the most comfortable chair that had earphones connected to a library of music and you could create your own list to listen too while watching the sea through huge windows.*two pools plus two spa pools * a gym and a beauty salon - oh the list goes on and on.
There was a walk around deck where you could walk 4 times around and you had walked a mile - very good to do after all the scrummy food.
Our room was lovely although one thing that I didn't like was that it didn't have a window, so you never knew if it was night or day. But it was roomy and very clean. Egyptian cotton sheets and duck down pillows, a lounge to sit on and a table to have a cup of tea if you wished, plus 24hr room service that was included. A fresh bowl of fruit was delivered each day. does that sound wonderful ?? ohh there is more to come.

It all sounds so good so far - I'm sure it continued. Plenty of activities as well as opportunities for relaxation, and ...... FOOD. Not having to cook for a fortnight - I'd really enjoy that.

It just sounds absolutely heavenly. How did they ever get you off that boat? I think I would have cried.

Can't wait to hear more!

Hugs, Connie

Hey Robyn, I have 'lost' your email addy - can you email me direct regarding my old greeting cards? I still have half a box full and will be glad to send you some. Just need to know if there is any subject you prefer, i.e. floral, Xmas, religious, 'cute', etc.
