The Wanderer returns...............


It took me a while but I finally got a chance to get back onto my blog. Beltane camp was great. Apologies for the serious lack of pics, I kept forgetting to get my camera out of the tent, and the other pics I do have are of my friends looking rough so I have been forbidden to put them on my blog. Most of my trip was spent sat around chatting, singing, and drinking although not in excess this year. We went to a couple of events around the bell fire, one of which was a pagan marriage ceremony, which was followed by a fire labyrinth. The labyrinth was amazing it had died down alot before I got to take a photo. We laughed a lot and were really grubby and in need of a bath by the time Monday arrived, so it was nice to get home and get clean. I don't sleep very well at camp so I spent the following week feeling tired, in fact for the last two weeks I've felt tired, and trying to catch up on some sleep.

Last Sunday we had a lovely day out with friends in the Forest of Bere. We intended to have a BBQ but they don't allow them there anymore so we had a picnic and took the BBQ's over our friends later. We had great fun playing with an aerobie, which is like a Frisbee but fly's better, so we're on the look out for one now. As well as us, Woody was tuckered out the next day too, as he spent hours chasing after his ball.
Last night I went to a Ladies evening at a local school as my SIL was selling her cupcakes. Its the first time she's taken them anywhere to sell and they sold like.....well, hot cakes, I guess, lol. The stall looked great and she sold every last one. Check out her new cupcake blog here.
I purchased some pretty cards and wrapping paper from the Phoenix trading stall and some smellies from another lady. A local beauty salon were there as well doing manicures and threading, so we all decided to have our eyebrows threaded. I can recommend it, they look great and threading gives a better shape than waxing and it doesn't hurt anymore than waxing either. Best of all it only cost me £5.
I haven't made much of anything for a while, as I just haven't been in the right mood. Its pointless me trying to make stuff if my hearts just not in it. So today will be spent trying to find my mojo (i think thats the term) lol.
I have been up to something else too but I will put that in another post this week. Hope you are all well.

Sounds as though you had a great time, welcome back!!
Probably that's where your mojo went!! Lack of sleep doesnt make you feel focussed, and raring to go, does it?

Hugs ; )

It sounds like you had a fab time!
I’m not very good at camping, unless I’m really drunk, then I’m not too bad.
