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

I hate Mondays. Monday is the day that I do quite abit of housework & washing and just lately I have been playing around on the computer for a little too long in the mornings and then have to rush about dementedly getting the housework done. yes ladies - you heard it * I am admitting to being on the computer for way too long during the day. Today, I turned it off once I had checked my emails and then I decided to ask my angels to motivate me & help me get the housekeeping done - Not expecting Samanta Stephens or Jeannie to do my housework - but just a kind little shove to get it done... and it really worked. I actually breezed through my housekeeping today ! I stripped the bed and sprayed it with lavender water and then let it air for an hour or two while I cleaned the bathrooms and dusted the bedroom. I love making a room special by adding little treasures to make me smile - today it was a lovely bunch of gardenias in Nan's bowl along with a newly made bed - crisp*white bed sheets that had been hanging in the sunshine to dry

Monday is my day for blessing my home too! I enjoyed it today, as I have rearranged my schedule a little bit to allow me more time to do other things - I whizzed through in a couple of hours and it sparkled! Until the kids came home :(

Ahhh, Robyn ~ it sounds wonderful...I can even smell those fresh sheets!
I have come to love Mondays, as the house becomes all clean and organised again ~ and I love that feeling...nothing like getting stuck into it to help blow my minds cobwebs away.

I get the same way....compute and compute then rush about feeling guilty as hell that I should have been doing something in the house...I then 'pretend' that I did lots of stuff in the hose....yes the computer is a wonderful trap! How about giving it up for lent ms robyn? (lol....just joking in case you just broke out in a sweat!!)

I can relate to everything you wrote. I'm shutting this thing off NOW and getting to work. If I don't, I'll end up doing housework until midnight, and never get around to sewing!!! At least I've had the beds airing for a while already, and the sheets are ironed and scented... just have to get them on the bed and one thing is completed!

Housekeeping is something that I have to be in the right frame of mind for, but whatever state I'm in, I usually find it very cathartic. It often helps to tackle one area at a time, so you can step back and think "I love it", I also like mopping and scrubbing floors by hand (in a sane way, of course!) hehe

Enjoy your sunshine-smelling sheets!

I would have done my usual Monday clean and freshen but my Belle was home at school, sickly and 'woe is me' so my tuesday is now my monday! Every month on the first monday I clense my house with incense and soft prayer to rid it of negative vibrations. I too sprinkle lavender water on my things and dot oils on my light bulbs. There is nothing like the sense of smell to enlighten your soul. xoxox

Oh those gardenias sound wonderful. Yes, those computers are a time thief, aren't they. Sometimes now I'm posting every other day because of that. It works....smile. Lovely post, Robyn!
