Where have I been: A ruined church in the middle of nowhere; very pretty and evocative and always cold, no matter the weather; walking in the local woods
What have I been listening to: Faun (favourite track Rhiannon); Stereophonics (Word Gets Around album)
What have I been watching: Tony Robinson’s Superstitions, Champion’s League Final (didn’t plan to watch it; my partner did); Grimm, Murdoch Mysteries
What have I been reading: The Art of the Maze by Adrian Fisher and Georg Gerster, Defying Rome: The Rebels of Roman Britain by Guy de la Bédoyère
What have I been writing: articles for The Moonstone; blog posts; I have started writing a new novel (I have several on the go at once) but whether it will lead anywhere and develop into a complete story, only time will tell; putting the finishing touches to a couple of courses I have written
What have I been making: recipes mainly for the Kitchen Witch Cook Book feature in The Moonstone, including strawberry bakewell tart and iced cinnamon muffins
Flower of the week: Definately the forget-me-nots in my garden – I just love them
Herb of the week: chives – the flowers on my chives will be opening soon and I am full of anticipation, the purple flowers are beautiful
Crystal of the week: there are two, rose quartz which I have been using to help revive my aloe plant 😦 and amethyst which I have been carrying around with me all week long
Tarot card of the week: well, the recurring card of the week is the 3 of Swords (I can hear other tarot enthusiasts groan!), though the traditional meaning of heartache and betrayal is not relevant here – although feel free to email me with any insights you guys might have at email@example.com – your views are always welcome.
Motto of the week: No more excuses!
And the rest:
- Sad over more animal cruelty cases that I have come across, namely a spate of hedgehog attacks in Cambridgeshire and attacks on swans and ducks in Lincoln
- Planning to start my Learn Welsh course
- Attempting to de-clutter the house – my partner and I collect books but we decided that we should try and get rid of some of them or buy a bigger house 🙂
- Catching up with uni friends – just where does the time go?
