Yes Portland is an Island seperated from Weymouth by a causeway. Its part of the Jurassic coast and I love living here. I will be posting lots of different things I hope you enjoy visiting here.

New alter for May, herbs in my garden and Gyno operation

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well. This is a bit of a mixed bag post. I wanted to show you the photos of my new Alter. I have aquired a few new things. A crows wing, a fairy beeswax tapered candle and some beeswax hangings. Also a card that my mum got me. I absolutely love it. I have had quite a week.  This Monday I went in for a simple gyneological operation.  A noversure ablation to stop my very heavy and painful periods.  I have had it done before and it went well but only worked for about a year and a half.  So I go in.  They had to reset my pacemaker, turn it off basically, for the op and boy I am so very pleased that I have a pacemaker.  My muscles around the heart are sore.  IT is all working fine again now.  Well they couldnt procede with the op as I had complications.  I was all set to go home, as it was day surgery, when I mentioned I was uncomfortable with pain and they kept me in.  Just as well because I haemeraged so badly and had huge blood clots they had preped the theatre and crossmatched me two pints of blood.  Well after constantly asking my angels to help and getting mad at them in the end something happend.  It was just like someone had turned off a tap.  It wasnt the operation that caused it, they had overdosed me on warfrin and clexane which meant I couldnt clot properly to stop the bleeding.  Well now they are recommending the biggy.  Hysterectomy, which I really am NOT keen on.  I am going to see if there is other pain relief that can help before I consider that one.  But, I am ok now, just a wee bit sore but that is ok. 

the purple feather is my pen. it fits in so well.

Here you can see the crows wing and the fairy candle.  I am not sure whether I shall use it.  It is so pretty

THis is the card my mum gave me today.  I love the colours used in this card

The fairy is one of the beeswax hangings.  I saw them and couldnt resist.

here you can see my sage on the left and oragano and thyme in the octagonal tub

Bergamot Earl grey Tea.  I wished you could smell it, and it has grown so much since I brought it about a month ago

My Lavender.  It is such an amazing lavender.  There is a story behind it.  When we moved in five years ago the very first plant I brought was this lavender.  It was in a tiny pot and the lavender was so small.  Well with the hastle of moving in I kind of forgot about the plant.  It had been put there by our door.  Now it is the magnificant specimin you see before you and yes it is pot bound.  I gave it a real pruning last year and you should see the new growth on it. 

My rosemary in the black round tub.  It seems to like it there.  The red plant at the back is my Acer.  Another favourite plant of mine.

I am thinking about..............

Hi everyone. 
I am thinking about setting up a ning site.  I have been getting lots of inspiration for this.  My site would include
  • Art demonstrations such as mixed media projects
  • Card and scrapbook making projects.
  • jewellery making projects
  • pagan crafts projects, ie dream pillows
  • herb information
  • fairy crafts ie bauballs for xmas
  • Seasonal crafts. 
There will be video's, PDF files, forums, and I may even do the occasional tarot and angel reading.
What I wanted to know was would there be the interest for this?  I will have to make small charges for some of the bigger video projects but should be around $10.00 per project.  This is because Ning as most of you may know now charge for their service.  I am not looking to make lots of money here just want to pass my knowledge on so please let me know what you guys think

Aqua fin tastic

Its my Birthday!!!

Yay.  today I am the wrong side of 30.  36 to be precise.  Time is certainly flying by
Yesterday as part of my birthday I was treated to an Aqua fin massage.  Lots of little fish that suck away at the rough skin on your feet.  Its sounds a bit UUURRRG but when you go and see it its great fun.  Well the girl put my feet in and they hold your feet down because if  you kick the fish they die.  So I shrieked like a pathetic shrieky thing and the poor girls who were waiting said "I've changed my mind" but they didnt.  It is just that first minute but the sensation is like when you put the shower on Jet and put it under your feet.  It's quite lovely.  Plus you get a foot massage as well all for £15.00.  I had extra chiropody on my feet as they are in a bad way.  so it cost me £25.00 well my hubby paid for it.

Oh and I got 3 flippin boxes of chocolates from people that should really know better.  They know that I am supposed to be loosing weight but that I will eat all the chocolate.

what we did the weekend.

Well just a little bit of fun we had on the bank holiday.  After we had watched the wedding of PRince William and Katherine Middleton.
The weather stayed dry and we partied away with a few hundred friends.

Had a blast stared off our Rally season with a bang.  Took me a while to recover, but I cant wait for the next Harley Rally
