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

oh where have you been?

after a few emails asking if I am ok - I thought I should probably post something here - so you won't all worry your pretty heads or think I am an absolute rubbish friend.....
it is winter and although I love it, when it gets cold, I ache. So I snuggle. The aches are deep in my bones - a legacy from the radiation, so I am told. So I have been lighting my fire as soon as I get up, doing my housework then snuggling under a vintage eiderdown and reading the Harry Potter series, yet again. Oh, how that resonates with me! I am sure I was a witch in a past life !
I haven't even visited blogs for a few days as I am not sitting at the computer for very long either. Just enough to answer emails - nor have I sorted the tea swap out. That is on my list for tonight. ooh I am so sorry !
I must also admit that the past few weeks in blogland, with all that happened ~ affected me more than I thought. It has taken the fun away and I feel I have nothing more to say...and surely that is not me !!!! I am trying so hard to get motivated but it is like I have a weariness in my soul. So dear friends ~ please don't give up on me - this is just a hiccough on my blogging road... I am sure those daily mutterings of mine with be back soon.

Sounds like you are doing the right thing...taking it easy.
I wasn't worried about you because I could sense that you were alright.
I'm glad I missed all the shennanigans on blogland whilst I was having my break, it all sounds pretty sad.
Nuture and nourish yourself ms*robyn ~ we miss you, and will enjoy having you post when you are ready. Love to You xoxo

I thought you might be enjoying your home and fall garden. Take care. I guess I am in the right spot in blogland cause I didn't even know there was any shannanigans going on. Enjoy your cozy fire and I will try to enjoy this very hot weather we are having here. :)

Now I feel guilty for not being one of the people who sent you a concerned email. I normally give you a week before I start bothering you about lack of posts lol

Goodness it's chilly is'nt it! I am sitting here in my play room (the garage) shivering to the bone but pushing on nevertheless. Much love to you my sweet friend. xox

Wrapping up warm is the best thing to do. It is supposed to be summer here but I have just turned on the heater.

My sympathy is with you and your aches, Robyn. I ache too, but for a different reason (for which I am grateful now, having read yours). My work as a Home Carer leaves me aching all over at the end of the three days that I work, so once a fortnight I indulge myself in a half hour remedial massage at a local massage parlour....NO! Oops, wrong title! Not 'parlour' - health centre is better!
Seriously, at $55 a pop, it is expensive, but to me worth every cent for the relief it gives me. Dear little Harry P - aren't you just bursting for the next book?? Do you ever watch "Charmed" on t.v.? I started watching it by accident a while ago, and now I'm hooked! Lots of fun - although certain people in blogland would be very disapproving...are you worried?

Oh Robin, fly up to the blue sky and smile at the littlness below, sing your song, any will do, we like to dance to your tune, happy, sad, fearful, new and old, of things untold and prayers in different tongues, You are the Robin that set hearts dancing...Like you said to me long long ago when I had a crazy person saying terribly insulting things on my blog...Let the Nutters roll away!

Yes Ms*R, snuggling is just the thing at the moment :)
I have achey bones in the cold weather too, and like you the fire gets lit first thing and I huddle around it for quite some time in the mornings! LOL

Hope you are feeling better soon, enjoy HP (love those books), and be happy :)

Hugs xxx

I agree with tongue in cheek. Let it all go and start anew. I know it's hard to forget hurt hearts, but you can do it! Stay well and stay warm my friend.

Dear Robyn,
Take care of yourself,and blog only when you feel like it ~ take all the time you need. Sometimes we just need to step back and focus on just ourselves.
