Welcome to My Magical Musings Hello my name is Tracey I am a Mother of 3 girls and a Nutty Nan to 8 Home is A Semi detached house on a suburban estate in Milton Keynes with the concrete cows and roundabouts I was born in the sixties in Burton on Trent a Brewery town in the midlands . I am the youngest of 4 girls and I was and still am “The Naughty one “
My Parents owned a pet shop and had a garage that was sited by the river Trent I had my very own island to play on and allsorts of weird and wonderful Animals to play with Looking back I had a great childhood it had its moments of sadness but its best we don’t go into that ………
My grandmother was a hedge witch and so was her mother She had a very large house only 26 house away from where I live , so I was there a lot. I could get lost in any of the 14 bedrooms. It was magic there, outside there was bluebell woods which lead into a walled Kitchen garden where Nan grew her Victoria Rhubarb, herbs and vegetables it was where she would escape the world she would sit on a stool drinking her sherry smoking her woodbinde next to a fire pit whilst telling me stories of her life it was the best place to be such magical times ……..
I think its why I became who I am……. Craft crazy, Home loving ,Allotment keeping, Moon-watching, wine drinking, Animal loving, Recycling & upcycling junky who is .Queen of the Carboot sales /Charity shops
I am Thrifty & Fugal at all times Goddess of the Kitchen (hedge Witch), Home and Bedroom ( but I wont be blogging about this LOL)
I am a practicing Pagan and I feel that I live a magical life even though my journey can be difficult as I suffer with ill-health I don’t like to talk about it loads but its part of who I am So here we go……… I have Dystonia ( I shake like a nodding dog in the back of a car LOL ) it’s a form of Parkinson’s disease and it affects my neck, spine, balance (vertigo) and hands it is really painful and difficult to live with I also have M.E, Diverticulitis IBS and my and spine is crumbling which is a side effects from Dystoia and as if that’s not enough for me to deal with I live with vertigo which is also a side effect of the dystonia I have good days and bad days but I Bloom where I am planted !!!
I love saying and Quotes my Dad would say them to me all the time like” If you cannot hear you will feel” and “A Fool and his money are quickly parted” but Bloom where you are planted is my favourite of them all. It has helped me get to where I am today and given me a positive attitude on life I think
I have a fascination for fairy’s, dragonfly’s butterflys birds etc this started by the river as a small child pretending the dragonfly’s was fairies and they was my friends
MY WINGS AND THINGS has came about because of this fascination of the iridescent wings flying on a summers day I am captivated by anything that shines and I am like a magpie for collecting things
I love painting (mainly thing with wings) and find this the best therapy when I am down I get lost in creating and drift off into fairyland life is ok there….. I can be at Peace in my sacred space
A Journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step and My Magical Musings is a the beginning of a journey for me This is my space to muse over my life I hope you will follow me on this journey Blessings Tracey xxx
