W stands for Witches..

My family like to tease me at times, as I apparently have an uncanny knack of foretelling the future. Often, when our three girls were younger I would foresee what they were 'up to' when they were doing things they shouldn't. Therefore, for this reason I was labelled a Witch.... A White witch that is, not an evil Black Witch. I don't regard this as 'Witchery' but a mother's intuition!


White Witches are good and often mistaken for being Earth Angels. Although there is a crucial difference between them, White Witches have a deep connection to nature and Earth angels are beings of air. Whilst Angels are mediators between heaven and earth, White Witches are beings of earth and are mediators between humans and elements. However both serve the greater good.


Mrs White Witch spying on youngest daughter drinking cider in woods with other friends when they should have been at a Girl Guides meeting !

  You should have seen the look of horror on their faces when I appeared from behind a tree !

She still doesn't know to this day how I knew she was there, easy really.....The Guide leader telephoned me as she 'smelt a rat', the four compatriots were noticeably missing for two weeks on the run... Oh boy! Were they in deep trouble.....I pushed the four of them into my car... after pouring the cider away. Youngest daughter was fuming with me..."how did you know where we  were"?  she sniffed, "Put it down to Mother's intuition" I replied, desperately trying not to laugh. "You're a Witch" she sniffed again.

 "Ah yes! but a White Witch"I retorted"( where lies another tale to tell).

I drove them all home in sullen silence to 'face the music', whilst the White Witch was stirring her cauldron to compose a suitable spell, to teach Astrid and her friends how to learn the error of their ways.......
 Needless to say, Girl Guides meetings were not missed again ! 


My sincere thanks to the Wise and Warm-hearted Denise for devising Abcw all those years ago.

It is Wonderful how it has achieved a World-wide status.
 Also, we must Whole- heartedly thank the ever Watchful Roger our administrator with his wealth of knowledge, doing what 
he does, so well.

 Finally our thanks must go out to the band of willing helpers, working  hard together, visiting  other sites and particularly, to WELCOME new contributors.

Best wishes  to all,

Di.

    1. Hildred,
      I think all of us Mamas have a bit of White Witchery in us. The daughters now say the same things to their children as I do!
      Nice to hear from you,

  6. Oh my goodness, I can just imagine how angry they were with you. But never tell a child the truth when you find out these things. I would say I had eyes in the back of my head and when they'd try something literally behind my back, I'd be at them so fast and they were always shocked that I knew!

  8. This is a great story! It would make a great scene for children's book or even a movie script about the adventures of "Mother White Witch." Happy ABC Wednesday, my friend!
