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

celebration in our household

to celebrate birthdays in our family, we usually all get together for a meal and the birthday person gets to pick what we have for dinner.
Caine is our birthday boy today and he has chosen steak dianne, mashed potatoes and beans along with 'his favourite'
strawberry cream pie served with King Is. cream of course !!!
He did ask that I cook smoked cod - but there is a limit to what a mother will do for her children, isn't there? The table is set in its finery, water jugs on the table and always, always a teeny bunch of whatever I have in my garden. When we sing happy birthday, we have this ridiculous wind up birthday card from the 1940's that we play. You have to wind it real fast for it to work - sometimes it goes fast and sometimes real slow and many times it misses beats - but what fun!

Birthday parties are the best! I love how you celebrate yours with the person getting to pick their item for dinner.

We still celebrate birthdays like we are still 5 years old. Give cake and presents please!

Your son is just about two months younger than my oldest. Good days, they were...and still are.
