She always starts off with a walk down the lane you see on the right.
She loves following the little trails and paths through the woodlands of Ballyyahoo.
She says you never know where they might lead.
But that’s not the only reason she goes walking.
She also likes to keep an eye out for mischief and make sure everything’s okay.
Not much goes wrong in Ballyyahoo but if something does you can be sure that Biddy is always first on the scene.
She seems to be able to be everywhere at once but she’s not really.
The truth is she walks everywhere and only takes out her flying vacuum cleaner if something really serious happens.
Like the time a wicked criminal tried to break into Gerry’s house.
Gerry knew it was going to happen because when found a magic stone.
The magic stone showed Gerry the future – a future with a mad villain and a sharp knife.
Trouble was nobody would believe him.
Gerry needed help from the Witch of Ballyyahoo – you can read the rest of that funny and exciting story here.
But things like that don’t happen very often in Ballyyahoo
Mostly it’s a peaceful place and most of Biddy’s walks are quiet ones with just the occasional cow to keep her company.
You can see how protective she is of her calf.
She is keeping watch to make sure nobody takes her away.
You can usually see beautiful newborn calves like this in springtime in Ballyyahoo.
While she’s walking, Biddy collects lots of plants and flowers and she uses them to make herbal remedies.
She’d never boil up toads and frogs. She’s not that kind of witch. Biddy loves toads and frogs.
Biddy usually finishes off her walk with a wander along the shore of the Half-moon beach.
While she walks the beach she looks out for more magic stones.
Magic stones are ones with holes in.
But not every stone with a hole in it is a magic stone.
Magic stones aren’t magic all on their own.
Magic stones have to be fiddled with and dipped in a rich concoction of herbs.
Only Biddy knows how to make her rich infusion of herby magic and that’s her best-kept secret.
Her magic recipes were passed down by her mother, her grandmother before that and her great-grandmother before that.
In fact, Biddy’s magic recipes go back as far as anyone can remember and that’s when time began.
