Waiting for the Show to Begin

The weekend is here and whether you work a regular work week or not it seems everyone looks forward to Friday! Well, this week I’m actually looking forward to Sunday instead. It may seem a little odd to be looking forward to the end of the weekend but Sunday is special this week. A friend…

The Six Songs Series – Part 1 – Songs That Make You Cry

I was reading an article on the BBC website today called ‘6 Songs That Make People Cry and the Reasons Why’. It struck me because just the day before I had been watching Room 101 on the BBC where the host, Frank Skinner, argued that he couldn’t put the film Grease in Room 101 because…

Don’t Stop Dreaming Just Because You Had a Nightmare

It’s easy to let a bad experience shape our decisions in the future. I’ll be the first to say that we should take the learnings from the bad experiences into anything new and be wary but I also am a great believer in never saying never because you just don’t know who or what is…

Choosing Wisely

The problem with knowing if you made the right decision about something is that you never know until it’s too late. Whatever you did either succeeds or fails. Now, failure isn’t always a bad thing…we learn from failures sometimes even more so than from the successes in life. Entrepreneurial Flair My boss at MadPea…the Queen…

Do You Believe in Coincidence?

NCIS fans I am sorry but Gibbs got it wrong. Rule 39: “There is no such thing as coincidence’. That may be the case in Gibbs world but maybe he just never experienced a true and real coincidence. I did. Back in 1986 (before mobiles….all phone calls relate to old fashioned landlines) I was living at…

Friends For All Seasons

On Sunday I posted on my facebook account about how I had been feeling for the last couple of weeks and why my friends had seen some changes in my behaviour…specifically me pulling away from their friendship for a time. I have never found it easy to discuss my feelings and that was part of…

These Are a Few of My Favourite Things

During a planning meeting for a SL TV Show about MadPea myself, and the host Saffia Widdershins of Designing Worlds, went off at a tangent and started to discuss our SL homes.  We both keep our work spaces separate from our homes and found that we both have a favourite spot in our homes that…

A Bit of ‘How’s Your Father?’

While I was working on the pictures for this post I started to think about the playful terms and phrases we have in our vocabulary for sex. So, I figured I’d have a little romp through the words we use for a little ‘rumpy pumpy’. I’m going to avoid the straight out adult terms and…

Things That Make You Go Oooooh!

Someone asked me once ‘Shoes or Hair’. That’s a tough question right? I mean that’s almost like asking me which of my two daughters I like the best!!! I love them both the same but they are so different in style and personality. Which do I have more of? Well if we’re going with sheer…

Shake it off! Shake it off!

My post today is going to be a bit of a mish-mash of thoughts and goodies. I spent a lot of time last week decorating my new house after deciding to make some changes. I had a reason to be spurred into action to work on the house though things change so very quickly in…

Are you an SL Calendar Girl? Join the Fun!

I read with interest, as so many people do, Strawberry Singh’s post with some challenges and ideas for resolutions. As I have said I rarely make resolutions but I am always up for a challenge and came up with the idea for SL Calendar Girls meme to be run on my blog and on Flickr. I…

A Roadtrip Through the Mind

What a crazy journey that would be full of twists and turns!!! Would I ever reach the destination? When it comes to my mind it might be a bit of a mystery tour at present. Somedays you wake up knowing exactly where the journey is taking you and sometimes a few detours really knock the…
