The Fox and the Hound

I had a wonderful evening in Second Life last night, starting with my DJ Set at Blithe. I have a regular set there where I play mainly alternative and indie music and throw the occasional pop or dance song into the mix. Last night I decided, with it being so close to the end of…

The Future’s So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades

  There are lots of things I can rely on my friends to do or say given the opportunity. Top of that list is ‘lower the tone’ (they know who they are and I can assure you they just read that and said to themselves “yups, she’s talking about me” with a broad grin on…

I Don’t Know What It Is but Sometimes It Escapes Me

I had a huge crash yesterday. Not in SL but personally. I think it was a combination of the highs of the Christmas period and ‘coming down’ from the combination of stress, excitement and fun along with a few things not going my way that let to an almighty downer which manifested itself as a…

Tears Won’t Fall

What has been the single worst element of 2016? It’s hard for anyone to tell because there has been so much death, destruction and history making, regardless of your views, political decisions which will have an impact across the world for many years to come.  Fake news websites have increased in number, their readerships have…

A Bun in the Oven

Today is going well so far and completely to plan. Most of the house is clean and tidy, the last lot of laundry is in the dryer, I’ve lit the Christmas candles and the scent of vanilla and nutmeg is dancing delightfully around the house with the aroma of the cinnamon swirl buns I have baking…

The Calm Before the Storm

As it is for a lot of people, it’s my last day at rl work today until the New Year and I am so completely and utterly ready for the break. The first few days won’t really be much of a break with last minute preparations for Christmas and then two solid days of visiting…

You Can Send No Transfer Love…maybe

Quite often my posts here are inspired by something I’ve seen on Facebook over the preceding days and today is no different. Gifting items in Second Life can be a little hit and miss. You might know if the person is online but with so many scams and phishing ‘bots’ in Second Life many of…

Running Up The Hill

Being a blogger can sometimes feel like pushing treacle up a hill. No, this isn’t going to be a blog post about a blogger bitching about how hard done by they are. It’s an awesome job and I’m extremely privileged to be able to share my blog with you.  When I first started blogging I…

Living in a Box

The title of the blog is definitely a reference to the picture and not how I am feeling, or what I am going to write about. In fact, quite the opposite. I will tell you more about the location for this picture in a few minutes but first I want to talk about the pre-Christmas…

Starlite, Starbright, the star I see tonight

A couple of weeks ago someone I had met recently and asked me to give them a link to my blog as “the link in your profile is wrong”. I gave him the link and he immediately came back and again and said “no, it’s not working. That’s a different blog”.  I must admit I…

Santa Baby…I’ve Been an Awful Good Girl

I talked earlier in the week about Christmas songs and Santa Baby has to be up there as one of my favourites. The song was in my mind as I took this picture. Everything is a bit of a blur at the moment as the rush to get ready for the Christmas season takes grip….

A Minor Slip

My mother was an amazing ice skater and whilst I can roller skate I have yet to master walking on ice let alone skating on it. My mum was a graceful lady and I may have taken after in looks, eye colour and body shape (I can’t even blame the big bewbs on my inability…
