Every evening I've been sending my wishes out into the universe. All this ritual entails for me is some reflective time, a wad of good paper (powder pink Basildon Bond, if you don't mind), a pen, candles and something to burn them in - in my case, my tiny cast iron cauldron.

Last week was not a great week for me. I felt very sorry for myself and spent an awful lot of it moping around.
