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

oooh -

I didn't expect the response for the good wifes guide! where is my blog going ? ? sorry if I offended anyone, really I am. I just thought it was funny. My mother was like this and I decided at an early age that I wasn't going to be. I wanted my marriage to be like my paternal grandparents - where my grandma stayed home and grandpa went out to work. She looked after the home and their 7 sons but by crikey! if grandpa put a foot out of line - woe & behold! You could hear her sreeching miles away. The original fisherman's wife."cecil" she would say "what on earth do you think you are doing? for Heaven's sake, do I have to be the only adult here"...... But they absolutely adored each other and he cried so much when she died. I was 10 and I can still remember the grief that he showed. I am an equal to my soul mate. When he arrives home, he asks how my day was then he makes me a cup of tea. Then I get dinner * we chat. I make his life lovely most times....... sometimes I am sure I don't, actually I know I don't. But I am only human.
I love housework - I love my home and my family but sometimes, just sometimes I fantasize about escaping to a small farm where I can be all alone. Surely I am not the only one?

Oh no, Ms*Robyn, you are most definitely not alone in that little fantasy! I too, think that I would like to run away sometimes, and I occasionally think it would be easier to be a single parent (and I have been one, so know what it's like), but usually, it's when I'm feeling grumpy with myself. And when that happens, no one can make it alright, because it's coming from within me. The littlest things become big dramas when I feel out of sorts (read my blog!), and I have to really pull myself up sometimes and realise how lucky I am...

I nearly fell off the chair laughing at all those things a wife should do. Ashley would really think I was ready for the funny farm if I even tried half of that stuff...lol.

I'm ready for a quiet place too, on my own, no kids, no husband. Do you think we should buy a retreat where we could all live in small self contained houses and only meet if we feel like it??

I'm definitely a 'yes' for the retreat.... I showed my husband the 'guidelines' last night and he wanted to copy them and take them to work today. I said 'NO' of course. LOL Can you imagine the domino effect that would cause?. I would be shunned at all the ofice parties. Come to think of it.... LOL then I wouldn't have to go then would I? LOL

Your last entry didn't offend me in the slightest, it's good to have a laugh every now and again instead of being serious all the time. It's like most other things, you glean from it what you want and leave what you don't. Count me in for the retreat too...

I actually loved the good wife's guide :) You probably have seen the large stir over on my blog about all that :)

Ms Robyn,

It was a great post. So not offensive. I really enjoyed reading it.

Robyn you are a delight! Stop fretting... I like you and I like what you write and if you send me two dozen chocolate chip cookies everyday, then and only then, will I have thought you flipped! But I will still like you!
