oh my but i am tired!
i am sitting here still in what i class as my pyjamas...striped top and bottoms with snowboarding monkey's ;) with a large mug of lemon tea sitting in front of me.
we came home yesterday and only unpacked the essentials so have a day of slowly sorting and unpacking in front of us.
our moongazy camp was just glorious...
glorious i say!
we arrived on Wednesday afternoon so we could unpack, set up some welcome signs and sort out the spaces for those who had electric hook up. the drive up had been lovely with a single shower of rain, we pulled up and wanted to get our awning up so the fur-kids could be put out and what happened?
it poured down for about three hours with poor swampy diving out at the times it eased off a little to put the awning up bit by bit. so it took ages to get set up by which time we were exhausted, cooked tea and fell asleep.
people started to arrive the next day and by friday evening our little community was buzzing with laughter and energy. we had a small ritual to open the camp and then it was all go....
and it didn't stop until yesterday when all but a few people left the site.
it is going to take me a while to stockpile my spoons because i was like a small, slightly wonky whirlwind, not wanting to miss a thing.
Saturday night was fantastic as we had three acoustic guitars (i was so pleased that swampy was one of those), a bodhran (the player allan gave me a lesson with mine the following day!) and a few other drums and djembies all around a big camp fire...i will say it again...
glorious...if you are my friend on facebook i have been tagged in many photos so go have a look!
coming home we hurried into the garden to see how things had grown and it looks wonderful, everything is flourishing and i was going to sit out there just now with my tea but glad i didn't as our 'concrete' neighbours are doing 'something' noisy so my peaceful contemplation and listening to the birds would have been ruined :(
we were going to go to Glastonbury today but swampy has not checked our 'budget', this is the week all the big household bills go out, plus we are both struggling now the natural 'high' has worn off.
however we only live two hours away so can, realistically, go whenever we like.
so i shall be getting swampy to sort the budget and plan a day out!
once i have unpacked i shall be waking up the wylde apothecary for sales again both on my website and on etsy plus i have some new items that i will be creating~my own incense blends and 'mini' travelling altars so keep an eye on the wylde apothecary website/blog!
i also have some photos to put up, i bought a gorgeous hawthorn green man from my gorgeous friend where the wild roses grow and another friend, moongoddess knitted me the most wonderful red haired woodland fairy who is sitting patiently beside me waiting to have a name found for her!
