The full moon in January..
The full wolf moon.
According to lore, under this moon, wolves would howl
in hunger outside Native American villages.
When the moon is full in January, people tend to eat too
much, drink too much and play to much trying very hard to fill
a Winter emptiness inside...

Our week here at home started excitedly!
On Monday, Miss Olivia passed her driving test..
And I won the lottery!
They say that luck can come all at once..
~ Olivia's wanted to drive since the beginning of time!
~ And I must confess, it's been a 'wish' in the
I'm not a driver!
Yikes no, the roads are much safer with out me on them!
~ But Olivia, I believe has found her own wings..
~ and learnt to fly!
~ and learnt to fly!
~ Mr Rosey Tinted Spectacles passed his test when he was
just nineteen too..
~ But I've never needed wheels or wings for that matter to get
me from one old place to another.....
I've always been able to do this quite nicely by myself..
Let me explain.
~ Many moons ago when I was quite small....
I could be stood in assembly with all my friends at school
and yet not be really there at all..
I had a way of magically disappearing in my mind!
~ to some where I really wanted to be.
~Some times it scared me as I could feel quite light
and almost out of my very own body!
But for the most it was exiting and I could drift off
to some where more interesting...
Usually outside in the playing friends or in the nature garden to
the side of the school gates...
I remember telling my Mama, who said
"It was most probably
But I knew she understood, because she could do this too.
she said we both needed to ground our energies...
and all would be well.
~ she also said" We were quite lucky to have this gift
of escapism"... handed down to us..
and I suppose we were...
~ I wasn't really sure just how to ground my self, but days were filled with growing up!
and because my Mama moved house, almost every time the wind changed...
I forgot about the day dreams..
And just got on with
filling my boots with real life!
I tend to only dream at bed times now.....
Some times they seem ever so real.
But I do always wear my' Rosey Tinted spectacles' in the day, of course!!
Wishing you a week full of lovely day dreams.
~ and hoping you are keeping as cosy as' kitten's in mitten's'...
