Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say

Some, in fact most, people don’t like conflict. The majority of us don’t court controversy. However, a lot of us, if need be, will stand up for our views and opinions if necessary. We all have to face situations in our real lives, and Second Lives, that we know will bring us into conflict because…

Someone watching over me

This may sound from the first paragraph that it’s going to be a depressing post…it’s really not, bear with me…there is light. Two major life events happened for me in a matter of days in the first week of October, 1991. On the Monday I found out I was pregnant and on the Sunday, just…

Paradise by the Poolside Lights

I’m not going to be writing a huge amount today.  As some of you know from previous posts my daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease last year and hasn’t responded very well to the treatments she’s had so far. Today is surgery day…she’s having a section of her bowel removed. It’s a fairly common operation…

Music for Love

What do I even write about today with the news that Britain is waking up to? When you went to bed hearing the news that an explosion had rocked a concert in Manchester and there were fatalities. When you wake up to the news that 22 people, some of them children, have already lost their lives…

Work Hard, Play Harder

Back in the 70’s, and 80’s I think, Mars used the slogan ‘a Mars a day helps you work, rest and play’ in the UK and some other countries too I believe. It’s become one of the most famous advertising slogans and is still remembered today. Several years after they stopped using it a study…

Something Old, Something New – A Blogger Challenge?

I’m a bit of a hoarder in both lives and, just like in real life, I love to find something in my inventory I haven’t worn for a while and dust off the cobwebs and give it an airing. Like this Besom hair I’m wearing that I first blogged in July 2015 and, in all honesty…

In it to win it!

It’s an informational post from me today rather than a random delve into my thoughts! I wanted to share with you a couple of photo contests that are going on right now. First up is the FaMESHed 5th Anniversary Contest. The prizes are crazy…and unlike most things in SL I mean crazy in a good…

A Smile Is a Curve That Sets Everything Straight

I’m a book reader. I read every night before I go to sleep. No matter how tired I am I have to read at least a page of a book to help me unwind and replace all the muddle of other stuff in my head with a story I can get lost in.  It’s rarely…

The Age of Entitlement

As always, my blog is where I get to shoot from the hip if I choose to. This is going to be one of those straight-talking posts. Not a rant…hopefully, but my opinion on what I’m seeing more and more in Second Life. Over entitled, spoiled, whiny-ass, allegedly grown adults sucking the fun out of…

The Road Less Traveled

The main reason I started blogging a couple of years ago was as an outlet for a lot of difficult to deal with emotions that I couldn’t express to anyone in Second Life. I recognised that I needed to process them somehow and my blog became an outlet. I’m fast approaching the 2 year mark…

Happy Birthday Cynful!

Quick post to tell you all about the fun and shenanigans that will be going on today at the Cynful. There’s lots to celebrate as the store turns 8 years old and opens a new mainstore on the same day! There’s 6 hours of tunes from 3 of Second Life’s best DJ’s and gifts galore…

Goodbye, TaKe Heart

I’ve put off writing this post….wondering if I might change my mind, but, as the day draws nearer I’m still quite sure that this is the right thing to do. I’m going to let my sim, TaKe Heart, go.  It has been a glorious 8 months with TaKe Heart as my home, and I know…
