    As i sit at my desk at The Hallowed Emporium contemplating whilst staring wistfully out of the window and listening to the windchimes dancing merrily away, i realise in calm of my mind its September! The beginning of the month always passes in a blur and yesterday was my birthday. I am now the rather adult age of 40. I have regarded the looming 40th with trepidation, but this morning something similar to adventure seeped into my bones. So as i shut my vividly purple door on route to the broomstick, (an aging Ford) I was so full of adult I was practically fully organised. 

    The Broom did not start. 

    Sat there amongst the crimes of my driving habits, sheer disbelief running through my veins I called Jo, asking her to save me a space in Betsy. Fifteen minutes pass and I get a rather amusing text about how Betsy spent the night, half parked in the bushes with her lights on looking for salvation, Betsy had tried to warn Jo the night before with a feeble alarm like cry, but Jo had disregarded the warning like the blatent rebel she clearly is. 

    So there we were, motionless and starving. Me, showing off my newly found adult skills on my first day of being 40,  phoned a taxi and have left my broom to deal with another day like a true adult. I would much rather being doing September things, after all, the Autumn Equinox is fast approaching and I have incense to make, salt to spill and general mischief to plan.

    Will check in with you all very soon

    An extremely adult



  2. Well, It has been all go since we opened in June!

    As some of you may already know me from the Hallowed Grimoire in Brentwood, I will catch you all up!  I had been busy whizzling from east to west since we closed the sanctuary, helping Flynn, from Feathers, Foraging and Flynn set up in her new grove down in the beautiful Exmoor hills. As the wheel of the year has turned full circle once more, I found myself itching to get back to what lights my own fire and a random conversation over social media with someone I felt like I had known for forever gave birth to The Hallowed Emporium!

    Since we have opened, we have had carrier bag spirits, been the dodgiest removal women you would ever meet, moon madness and one of us has had a baby! 

    So while Jo is taking time with the new baby, I am using the time to catch up on all the jobs that we should have done by now lol but I get easily distracted by shiny things, books and the promise of Autumn that it sometimes doesn't seem like I am an organised Virgo at all. 



    Happy Full Harvest Moon!
