I had a lovely day yesterday. I woke at 4am though and didn't go back to sleep- I needed to get up at 5.15. So it was a looong day. Journey all OK, I was in Glastonbury just after 10 so I headed straight to the Chalice Well. I was the only visitor when I first arrived! I did my usual wander round with stops in various places. It was a bit of a wild windy day, and being January not a lot was in bloom but I did find some snowdrops just starting to poke their noses out of the earth by the well. I spent a long time by the well with two very tame little robins for company. I do love those gardens.
Then I headed back into town and had lunch at Rainbow's End and did my shopping. I had quite a long Glastonbury shopping list.. there is nowhere in Oxford where you can get essentials such as Imbolc cards. I got a book about Bigfoot which I was delighted about, a new Earth Magic oracle pack, a lovely cat and pentacle pendant from Liz's shop as I realised.. I don't have a pentacle necklace which is very remiss of me as a pagan! My sweet mum insisted on giving me some money so I bought the pendant with that plus a new Chalice Well ring. Plus assorted presents and cards.
Then I went and had a wander round the Abbey grounds, which I usually do before getting the bus home. I love to go right out to the nature reserve, then back via the ponds. Set off home just before 4, arrived home at 8. Went to see mum, went to bed at 9pm, was asleep my 9.05pm, woke briefly about 3 times in the night, then woke properly at 8am. I needed that long sleep!
My unicorn charm was still there
