today we signed the contracts to our new home.. today, I had lunch with dutch husband. today I wore my tee shirt back to front with out realizing it.
Today I stocked up on herbal teas to make infusions ~ oatstraw, red clover, nettle, lemon balm and sage.. hopefully one of them will work. today I burned lavender oil because apparently it is good for the dizziness that goes hand in hand with menopause. hard as it is I am actually enjoying this challenge of menopause.. it is like I am getting to know myself all over again.
now. what to name this new home? ... to tell the truth, I did have a name picked out for the other home.. and following below is that story..[this was written a week ago when we were buying the other house.. ]
[an Angel in the shape of my Nan ~ an altered photo of her 'by Moi' when she was a little girl]
At first it was going to be named BRAMOSOLE.. from one of my favourite books – 'Under the Tuscan Sun'
but as I was re reading the book, a new name came to my attention Cento Angelis – which means 100 Angels..
[a pottery Angel that I bought at some art markets in Sydney, hanging from some pink vintage ribbon]
I told dutch husband that I needed a sign from God. The day that our offer was accepted, a package arrived in the mail.. and it was my Lady of Fatima statue that I had ordered weeks ago.
[St Rita, I believe.. with an Angel.. one of my many vintage catholic icons]
early the next morning I was chatting to dutch husband about the sign from god, and we got talking about when we had moved into this house, Inglewood. It was the month of May, the month of Mary. And coincidentally we will be settling on our new home in the same month – May, the month of Mary. And Mary is accompanied by angels, I believe..
so that is my sign. Our new home is to be called Cento Angelis...

and of course as synchronicity has a way of working.. there was a comment on my facebook to cinch the deal, which in part said 'Creator has placed so many angels around you....'
but like I said, this Cento Angelis was not meant to be.. it does not suit this home we have actually bought.. I am wondering if the Cento Angelis that I read was actually a sign from God that I have 100 Angels surrounding me in the guise of my blogging friends.. all praying and thinking of me? I do believe that is so.
so what to call this new home? I have an idea but need a sign.
[and then of course, there is the matter of the blog.. do I start a new one for the new chapter I am about to walk.. or change the name here? [what do you think?]...so many decisions!]
