Hello my dearests,
I do hope you are all safe and sound after the storm this week…here in Carmarthenshire there was chaos on the roads as trees and branches fell and brought down phone lines….I’m grateful not to have been affected- except by my children’s school being closed…so we had an extra long weekend!
So this month as well as holding a couple of ceremonies for my daughters (pics above) and celebrating my birthday (!), I’ve been cooking up some ideas…so keep an eye out for a special Red Tent evening I’m going to talk about on my blog and all over social media soon…!! And I’m involved with a few women on brilliant projects; Melanie Swan and I are going to be heading a campaign to break menstrual taboos in the new year (exciting!) and I’m involved in a *hush hush* project with the Dauntless Daughters….if you haven’t seen Stephanie’s books, take a look, they are AWESOME!
I’ve also had to do that horrible form that many of you who are self employed may have had- for your Tax Credit entitlement- PROVE your business is viable and how many hours you work…well after printing screen shots of all my websites, products, workshops, twitter account, Facebook pages…gosh, I realised how much I manage as a self employed person! So I got to thinking how great women are at networking and promoting each other…and wondered if any of my readers would like a little slot in my newsletters or on my bog as a swap for a promotion? Get in touch if you think its a good idea! Lets do some Shameless Promotion of each other!
In The Shop
Have you started to think about yule yet? or maybe you like to give gifts at Samhain?
Also…I’m having a bit of a clear out and have a couple of my Reiki Energy Paintings for sale- I’d prefer not to post these beasts…so if you’re local or perhaps attending a workshop with me and would like the ones called Bliss and Gentle Breath make me an offer! They are lovely in a treatment room or even your home space.
On The Blog
Well I’ve been busy blogging this week…you’ll find 2 posts- a book review, which doesn’t get my recommendation! I’d love to hear what you think- Join the discussion on our Ask Aunt Flo group!
And I’ve written more about life in Peri Menopause….yes…somedays that’s me with the gun!
