I know I’ve done this elsewhere recently but I got tagged again by Dawtch and she’s a witch so I thought I’d better do something about it. These are 6 more things about me
1. I’ve always had a soft spot for Albrecht Dürer.(sorry it’s the French page but the paintings are what you should be looking at) I discovered that the retired lady who comes for conversation is an admirer of his too. We giggle like school girls at the thought of him. Did you know that people thought that he had a magic paint brush just for painting hair?
2. My granddad is my spirit guide. A few years ago I had an incredible dream about him being pleased to see me. Then about a year ago I followed an exercise to meet my spirit guide – and he was there! I should have known all along. All I have to do now is remember to ask him for help!
3. This is turning into a very spiritual ‘about me’. I can’t pray. I was very concerned about this until I heard Karen Armstrong speaking on the radio. Not being able to pray had caused her problems as a nun – if I remember rightly. Then I understood what was going on with me. However when my dad was dying I prayed - I felt that I was wrapped in a cocoon of blue light and warmth. A long way from gabbling The Lord’s Prayer before going to sleep in case something dreadful happened in the night!
4. I live in La Rochelle and grew up in Worcestershire not far from Worcester. La Rochelle is a town which belonged to Eleanor of Aquitaine, who was Queen of France and then Queen of England. One of her sons, John (Lackland – who lost the crown jewels in the Wash), is buried in Worcester cathedral. I always feel that I’m ‘meant’ to be here because of that coincidence
5. I never expected in a hundred years that I would have a daughter. I cried my eyes out when Dom was born (between her two brothers)
6. I talk to bees and any other insects who will listen and they usually do. This is an excellent method for getting them out of the house; just ask them firmly to go outside (don’t shout at them) and point in the direction of the open window or door. Most creepy crawlies would rather be outside anyway so are happy to oblige. In his book ‘Bring Out The Magic In Your Mind’, Al Koran wrote about Lady Muriel Dowding (founder of Beauty without Cruelty) asking the mice to leave when they infested her home – they did
