oh slack one

Thought i'd better blog something before you thought that I'd gone AWOL...

no still here...just reading Harry Potter and cant...and i mean really cant put it down...very strange...am now dreaming about Harry Potter....hmm think i must get life!!!

BB is well and walking everywhere now...way cool...now just waiting for the running to start and up goes mum's fitness level...cool...hmmm

Am looking at different healing course on the net since buying the WellBeing mag today and finding heaps of interesting stuff to do....now all i have to do is choose one and pay for it!!! hmm money yes that always helps....

Maybe i could become a Polarity Therapist!!!! "Polarity Therapy is an all encompassing approach to healing. It ranges from the importance of the health and wellbeing of the physical body, through to the importance of right thinking and acting in the world which leads to emotional balance which in turn leads to greater self understanding and knowledge of the part we play in the great scheme of things"


A Spinologist....."Spinology is a life-enhancement profession promoting optimal performance and function of the body by identifying and correcting spinal obtrusions. Spinal obtrusions are destructive on every tier of our life, from our energy levels and moods, to our creativity and capacity to work, and our ability to deal with stress to our levels of resistance to disease. Anybody wanting to get the best out of life should see a Spinologist....well lets go i say...


A Kinesiologist...."Kinesiology is used in the Natural Health Field as an effective and versatile tool to identify and correct stress and imbalances in the body, by applying skilled muscle monitoring (biofeedback)"

hmm so much to choose from.....hmm where to go from here?

They grow so quick!!!


I've decided that face book is not for me..too much else is going on at the moment that i don't have time to go into face book...and to be honest now that the good weather is here...I'm more likely to be outside with BB or doing craft stuff that sitting in front of a computer playing hangman is not that appealing to me...plus i cant really work Face book out and cant be bothered trying....so think I'll just stick to blogging....sometimes.....


Yes that's right...Baby Bear is finally walking...whooooohooooo.....

So it's game on and skates on from now on......

He took his first steps on Sunday 30Th Sept...13 months to the day.....BB must have know that we would not be able to forget that one!!!

now he is toddling all over the place...sooo cute to see

Dragon workshop

It finally happen...and what a great day it was too, so many Dragons came to play with us it all got very very hot and crowded in there.

Shann and Jonathon both got Dragon Names, Jane got a Dragon Tear that she is not yet sure she is going to except as her Dragon is yet to reveal what the price for this tear is...as there is always one, and Daya found her Guardian Dragon....phew...lots happen!

We tried to find a better name for the "Dragon Energy Wand" as "wand" did not really fit...and tried and finally worked out what the middle part of Shann's Dragon name meant....

Some of the Dragons today were very insistent, and had to be asked a couple of times to step back and wait...we were trying to go through the notes and both Shann and I kept getting light headed...and Jonathon was being prodded in the back at one stage for him to get what his Dragon was trying to tell him!!!

Very strong energies in the Cottage today for sure....

Everyone loved the meditation that we did and I can thank the Dragons for that one...think i might printout some more of the Dragon packs and bring them to the cottage and see if anyone would like one...cheap at only $5.....

I loved do the workshop and will be holding another one if anyone is interested....watch this space or blog!!!!!

What is Facebook? please tell

Dog don't use the doghouse..BB does!!!

How Cute....

Oh Dear

Why do some people do the things they do?

I don't think that anyone can really answer that. We can never assume to know what goes on in someone else mind, what their emotions are, we can only offer the hand of friendship if they wish to take it that is up to them. We should also remember to be true to ourselves, not to let someone else promlbes/issues make us feel sorry for them in a way that upsets our own truth. to be mad at what someone has done or the place that they have put you in is fine when it comes from love not hurt.

Well i've just caught up on the blogs and left comments...hmm now am going to bed...


What to say

As one Mary Elf said "if your life cracks we want to hear about it"....so here goes..

It's been 2 months since my father died and it's not getting any easier to deal with...I have good days and bad days...I just hope that someday the good out weigh the bad....don't get me wrong I'm not, not happy but something seems to remind me each day that Dad is not here with me anymore....I know that he was not here in Oz but i could always call and speak with him...I went to Art class the other day for the first time in a while and thought on the way home that i would tell Dad that i had finish my first piece of artwork in a long while.....only to realise that...hmmm not here anymore.....

Yes i know that you will all come back with "he is still with you in spirit" and "he knows"..but I don't want him in spirit I want him on the other end of the phone..telling me to look after BB as he is "a chip off the old block".....and to ask again several time in our conversations "so what's the weather like out there?" it must be a British thing to be so obsessed with the bloody weather....hmm that's probably coz it's so damn wet and cold over there!!!

I miss my Mum and my sisters almost everyday and part of me wants to be over there with them...just to have some-one who knew my Dad and could do the "do you remember when..." and "I wonder if he ever knew that..."

I want my Mum and sisters to come to the park with Archie and i, and to the beach on warm days... to have them watch him grow up...i want to watch their kids, my nieces and nephew's grow up too...why is it so far...and such a long way.....

But enough...enough..enough...I love Oz that's why i moved over here...my choice...my decision to come over here..that was when i was so very self sufficient..that i didn't need my family...so what difference did it make if they were in the UK and i was in OZ....i can cope on my own...always have always will....wrong...

I am truly grateful for my many (yes i do have many) friends that i have made here in Oz, i would never have made it this far without you all....you all bring so many gifts into my life that i am a richer person for them. I am a better person from my association with you....

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. xxxxxx

Now i'm off before i start off again...

love to you all

Well job interview went very well.....as i have always been able to bluff my way through any interview....and i will know by Friday if I've got it or not...but have decided not to take it if offered as the start time of 8am is too early...I've not comfortable in having Bear in daycare from 7:30am...as that will been stuffing up his sleep times and you all know how that would go down with me!...plus the business does not open until 8:30am...so why can't i start then i hear you ask (or not) well that would be because i would be cleaning toilets at that wonderful early hour of 8am...yes that's right the job was for an admin assistant and then your supposed to be cleaning toilets...male ones at that!!!!!

Hmmmmmm so not happening that's what i say......hey i don't even like cleaning my own damn toilet!!! but know that i have too...but a man urinal..not why

Well i don't know about you but i was a wee bit blown away by our guest speaker last night at the cottage...and how bad i am that i can only remember that his 1st name was Robert...anyone know his last? anyway the 1st time he was there all that he was saying went right over my head so when i saw him there again last night i thought the same thing was going to happen...but not this time baby...it made complete and utter sense to me...so much so that at the end he help me to get rid of all the crap that I've been carrying around with me for the last 6 months or so....goddess do i feel so much lighter!!!!

here's some more pictures of my beautiful baby son!!! not so much a baby anymore...12months old on the 30th Aug.....my goddess how the time flies when your having fun!!! yes that's right folks I'm having fun now with my son...you sould see him when he knows his going to the park and gets to go on the slides...his whole face lights up...so very cute.....

You are the World

Completion, Good Reward.

The World is the final card of the Major Arcana, and as such represents saturnian energies, time, and completion.

The World card pictures a dancer in a Yoni (sometimes made of laurel leaves). The Yoni symbolizes the great Mother, the cervix through which everything is born, and also the doorway to the next life after death. It is indicative of a complete circle. Everything is finally coming together, successfully and at last. You will get that Ph.D. you've been working for years to complete, graduate at long last, marry after a long engagement, or finish that huge project. This card is not for little ends, but for big ones, important ones, ones that come with well earned cheers and acknowledgements. Your hard work, knowledge, wisdom, patience, etc, will absolutely pay-off; you've done everything right.

You are super productive, and you are able to think anything through.

Focused and super charged, your instincts are a good guide for your next step.

Some history on Avebury....

Avebury is in southern England in the county of Wiltshire, At the heart of pre-historic Avebury is the henge. Compared with other henges it is massive and though erosion and vandalism have reduced it considerably it still remains an impressive spectacle. Its construction was spread over several centuries beginning about 3000 BC when the Cove and the earliest stage of the Sanctuary were built. It would be another 600 years before the final form was achieved when the avenues were added about 2400 BC. It consists of a circle of land surrounded by a ditch and bank, the bank being outermost. The area covered by the circle is about 28.5 acres and the circumference is approximately 0.8 of a mile. Around the outside of the circle once stood 98 large sarsen stones some of which weighed as much as 60 tons and perhaps more. Within this large outer ring are the remains of two smaller stone circles one of which originally consisted of 27 stones and was about 320 feet in diameter (northern circle) and the other which was about 340 feet in diameter and consisted of 29 stones (southern circle). Both of these inner circles are each much larger than the circle of stones at Stonehenge. It has been calculated that the area occupied by the stone circle at Stonehenge would fit into the outer stone circle at Avebury around 130 times. This gives some idea of how vast the Avebury Henge is.

What did i feel at Avebury...not that much if I'm honest.....it's kind of hard when you have BB and Hubby with you.....plus trying to dodge sheep poo....and high school students!!!! this does not make for a very spiritual experience!!!

Last time was awesome...when i touched the stones....got so many pictures...images of pasts people this time it was more about feelings.....

feelings of vastness...feelings of centuries gone past un-noticed...

oh well hope you all like your rocks


What can you say about this place but....wow...truly awesome.............

Hi, honey i'm home!!!!

We made it....Hubby had to take the BB on a different flight than me as we couldn't get on the same one!! bummer...but all went well and we are home and almost all unpacked......

Hopefully will catch-up on all your blogs very soon and will blog some stuff that happened when i can......

hmm well as BB is asleep maybe will blog now......ok here are the photo's I've promised...

This my Mum's home.....and her lovely cherry tree in the back yard

Guess What

Guess where i was yesterday!!!!!!

Avebury and Stonehenge!!!!!

Yes that's right two of the most awesome places in England.....sorry still cant get the bloodly photos to load...but do have video of it!!!

Avebury is one of the last standing circle that you can actually walk around....yes......you can actually go up to the stones, touch and feel them...you can feel their vibrations...see images (which is what i did again.....lots of images of animals,village people and trees) and if i can get them through customs i have some rocks from Avebury for you all!!!!! how cool....

And if you don't know anything about Stonehenge...you should be ashamed of yourselves!!!

Where i get back i'll bring my video to group if you want and load my photo's.

Haven'y been able to find any WitchCraft mags yet Renata still looking thu....

please explain

i feel that i must explain some things....i am rocking BB but cant do it all night as BB is now 11kgs so very heavy too hold. Am patting to sleep but nit if BB wakes every 1/2 hour!!!

BB is getting heaps of cuddles.....why wouldn't i do this!

routine for BB is essential...he ]needs it...he love it....thrives on it...so he do not do well on wingingit!!!!

All is good now thanks for your thoughts/comments

I am coming home early as i cant cope with the plane trip on my own....25 hours is a very long time...all we need to do now is change ticket!!!

Tuesday, 26 June 2007

Rain, Rain and more bloodly Rain!!!!

well I've gone from wet Oz to wet UK....they are now having their wettest June on record and last night had floods and torrential rains...hmmm i wonder if we brought it with us...a sort of welcome to the UK present!!!

Went out and brought a rain cover for BB stroller as we couldn't go anywhere with him as nothing is under cover....go figure in a country like England you'd have thought that all would be!!!! just like the POMS to not get it right.

Am still trying to work out how to get my photo's off my phone and onto the blog...so far proving somewhat difficult..but i will not be stopped i tell you...you will get to see all that is wet and still wet over here.....

Miss you all heaps....wish i was there......god it's happening already...i want to come home...not sure I'll make it to the end of August.....especially as BB had the worse night of his whole little time here.....woke @ 12pm then would not go back to sleep until 2.20am.......pooooooo and more poooooo not really sure what the reason and even if there had to be one...but we are trying to get him into his routine and that means not patting or rocking to sleep and boy is BB getting mad about that!!!! oh well if all is not good by 11Th July I'm coming back with Hubby....not staying here and having BB scream for over 2 hours with just me to deal with......

So any suggestions............or healing........spells...reiki will be gratefully received.

Finally here

We made it!!! after 25 hours.....not much sleep and airplane food........we finally made it to Mum's house.....it was a good trip all things considered.....but will not be making another trip with the BB until here is old enough to eat himself, walk and wipe his own ass!!!

It was very strange to go into the house without Dad...but it's to be expected. The service was lovely if very emotional.....which is again to be expected......i still find it hard to believe that he is no longer here....i was able to put the card i had written on to coffin so that is was burnt with him...which really made me feel good. it was also great to see all the family again...but would have been better if it was not for Dad,s funeral.

Thanks for all the comments....i thought i would do a Bee and not blog for a while just to get some comments on my blog!!!! only kidding sweetie!!!

Well i will try and take some picture of the house and stuff just so you guys can get an idea of who i'm talking about.

will blog more later
