Social media avoidance of the bored

After a long break I am starting to post on my blog again.

I admit I had been avoiding most forms of social media since lockdown began in March because I find it hard to say goodbye or no to certain people within my social media and I was getting burnt out and swamped in the first week, let alone going through the whole haul of lockdown for months on end.

For my own sanities sake I avoided most social media and only went on it occasionally for a few minutes at a time a week. Unsurprisingly during lockdown I was in higher demand than normal primarily because people who often don’t care about me in usual circumstances were so bored with their everyday lives in isolation that they decided that they would think of me and wonder how I am, which is nice but insincere of them and insincerity is a pet hate of mine.  Ordinarily close friends and family there are less than ten people who maintain contact with me, during lockdown, people I hadn’t heard of since primary school had found me and wanted to talk again, even former bullies!  I must admit one or two new contacts startled me because it made me wonder how bored some people I am afraid of could be during lockdown and what they might do or say to me, when there is so much time on their hands to think and remember again.

I have come a long way with my mental health journey to be dragged back down by bored and vicious people, so that is why I became silent and vanished offline until recently.  I understand that we may be going into another full national lockdown at any moment, but I want to continue on my creative journey, so please forgive any lack of socialising in the past.

I have to be a certain amount of selfish for my own minds sake at times.

How to Activate & Use A Hag Stone

I found a hagstone today under a clump of rye grass in my garden, came at a great moment in time for me too! At a time I wasn’t feeling very safe!

Hag Stone

While walking along the beach we were lucky enough to come across this beautiful Hag Stone. Some have one large hole through them whole others have several smaller ones. Ours has three, which was perfect for us as that day we had our youngest daughter with us so it felt as if it was a gift for all of us. We weren’t looking for one intentionally, and often if you are, you will never find one as they tend to find you when the time is right.

Hag Stones have been used for protection, charms, and other forms of magick for generations. You may have heard of them being called Holy stones, Holey stones, Wish stones, Fairy Stones, or Witch Stones. They were often hung on keys, doorways, over beds, or around the neck of a person or their animals (pets and livestock) to protect them from negativity and the…

The kelp dragons and the fairy coronation

In the land of the kelp dragons all mossy and green

The creatures are preparing a coronation for a new fairy queen

Her dress is green felt embroidered with ferns and her crown is gold apricots that won’t spoil or turn

She rides to the scene with an elegant mare, that’s decorated with blueberries, apples and pears

The dragons sit around protecting the queen

Nothing can harm them, they are too supreme

The fairies all gather around in the fen

As the dragons give their blessings to the queen and them

Before the dawn comes all have fun at the ball

The royal procession is fun time for all

Before the sunrises, the queen kisses goodbye, to all the kelp dragons and tries not to cry

Because she won’t ever see them again, as they only come to fairies if its coronation time again

Daily Prompt 10

Daily Prompt for today is – An electric guitar – Blood – Stag – An Aquarium – A drowning.

Now believe it or not, this was actually randomly selected, it is so strange how they all seem to interconnect in some bizarre way, well in my mind they do.

There is a lot we can make of these prompts. 

Go and have fun with yours.
