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

on taking time out

dearest friends,
I look back over the past two weeks and read the posts here on daily parcels and it seems that I have said, a few times, that I am taking time out
- and I haven't - for one reason or another.
But I must. You see, I am rundown.
I woke yesterday with a mouth full of ulcers and a coldsore (too much information, I know), caused when a person's immune system is depleted.
I look like I am a walking advertisement of why not to have botox.
and I am teary & fretful.
AND my house is out of control. My washing is piling up and I can't get on top of it - unless I turn into the Capricorn that I am and become a mountain goat!
So, I must take time away. I just have to!! I need to take walks in the crisp autumn air - not worrying about who likes me and who doesn't. Not to worry about what I am writing incase I offend.
it is hard to convince myself that I need time away, let me tell you.
cause I keep telling myself that if I disappear , even for a short moment then I will be forgotten - into the world of the now defunct bloggers - very insecure !
I don't know how long I will be away but it will be more than a day or two
I may visit your blogs to comment - but I need to get myself better.
The vintage tea swap is still on - so if you want to join - just email me.
please tell me that you will be here when I come back and you won't forget me -
promise ?

My dear friend,
Please take all the time you need and do take care of yourself!! I know this is so hard for someone who has such a sensitive spirit,but try not to fuss and worry over comments that were made here in blogland ~ that is all in the past...you can't please everybody and it is far more important to be true to yourself. I will be here for you (as you have been for me) through thick and thin. Don't worry dear friend no one will forget you ~ you have been my inspiration and really the reason I started my own blog. I am sending up prayers for you hope you feel better soon!

Never ever ever. You take your time and we will be here when you return. (Go out today and get you some herbal mouth and gum therepy with aloe vera, echininacea, goldenseal, calendula,spearmint, etc. then add a few drops of tea tree oil to the mix and rinse your mouth--will burn like the dickens but it will fix your mouth right up! Hurt so good!!) Take care of yourself, my friend.

Dear Robyn,

as I think I've said before, don't worry about not blogging or your bloggin friends leaving you, we wont! I don't blog every day either, sometimes I take a few days out. And why not? We also have a real life to live! Where is the law that says you have to blog every day? Just take your time and blog when you feel like it. We'll check here from time to time as always!

Hope your feeling better soon!
I'm sending you a big hug!

How could we forget you?
Take time, all the time you need and want.
Be good and gentle and slow and easy with yourself.

And be a dear daily parcel to yourself, and know that I am here and won't leave your side!

I had a friend who said I talked too much. I had a friend who said I wore too little make-up. I had a friend who said I needed to get out more and party. I had a friend who said I was much too quiet. I had a friend who said I had perfect hair. I had a friend who said I was too perfect.

I have had just about every kind of friend in my life. What I have noticed over the many years of being on this planet, is that they all need me to be something completely different.

Reading your post was refreshing.
It reminded me of how important it is... to my life... to be true to myself first. I am glad to have met you... even if just the brief visit or two I have had since discovering you vis tongue in Cheek antiques. I honor what you are doing for yourself as it is the best. I have had many friends in my life and while others come and go ... the one constant companion in my life has been me. I have not taken that relationship near seriously enough... wanting others to like me when liking myself was the one true antidote.

warm wishes to you on your journey. I look forward to reading more of your work when it feels best to you to do it.

xoxo Love Mindy

You are on my favorites list even though I’ve just got hooked by the blog about a month or so ago. One thing I must add, Michaela’s statement is so true- “ wanting others to like me when liking myself was the one true antidote.” You must not forget about yourself. Taking care of oneself is first so then you can be your very best and share your wealth with all the rest.Annabelle

Ditto to all the above. You silly sausage, do stop fretting about one person on the other side of the world who may have lost a whole lot of readers since she posted her bigotted (sp.) view on your blog. You should know who your friends are by now!
