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…

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…

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…

On my Shopping list…

Although it’s a fairly well known quirk of mine to love Mondays…I do love a Friday too. As I use Monday to look forward to what can be achieved in the week ahead, Friday is the day when you look back and give yourself a pat on the back for everything you completed and achieved….

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

Yes, You!

I do enjoy the first day of the week and look forward to going back to work. The weekend flew by far too quickly though, as it always does in some ways.  I wasn’t feeling so well on Friday and have been playing catch up all weekend with everything else as a result of that….

Oh Honey, I Don’t Care

Have you noticed how, in both lives, as soon as someone is prepared to stick their head above the parapet, there is always someone willing to take aim and try to pull them back down again? You see it in SL a lot with anyone that tries to do anything new or innovative…everyone is suddenly…

Weather Girls

Have you ever noticed just how much people can be like the weather sometimes? There’s the saying about people who ‘blow hot and cold’ indicating someone who shows a lot of interest in someone or something at one point and then equally disinterested moments, hours or days later. I’ve realised that one of the things…

Ponder in Bloom – Flickr Group Spammers

My post today is going to include a plea to people who misuse Flickr. I understand why they do it. I even understand what they think they achieve from doing it. The irony is that while on the face of it they may look, at first glance, like they have achieved their goal…they really haven’t….

Not a Care in the World

The weekend is almost upon us! It’s been a short week because of a public holiday in the UK and also been super busy in both lives so it’s literally flown by. It literally just feels like yesterday I was starting my week off when actually it was almost 2 weeks ago. Why does time…

Magic Tea Time Bliss

I need a good angel. You know the ones that sit on your shoulder and tell you when to behave and shout down the bad devil on the other shoulder egging on you on to do the stupidest things? See the devil, or bad angel, had no competition at the moment it seems. The bad…
