Waiting

“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time…

Will You

I’ve got the real writer’s block at the moment! I think it’s because I’m on wind down for my vacation and focussed on that. I’ve got some super exciting news to share but I can’t yet but if you don’t already follow the Blogger & Vlogger Network on Facebook now would be a really good…

Chilled

Chilled it about the polar opposite of life right now. I’m away on vacation next week and dreading it. I’m going to stay with my Dad in Cornwall and while I love my Dad it’s not a happy household. My stepmother has Alzheimer’s and is rapidly getting worse. The purpose of my visit will be…

Nature Party

I can’t quite believe it’s Friday already. The week has simply flown by with me flailing about from day to day looking more like a bug-eyed crazy woman.  I’ve talked before about how I find it hard to say no (get your mind out of the gutter I don’t mean like that). There are people…

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…

When it’s hard to say no

The fine line between trying too hard and getting it just right is something I’ve been struggling with for a few weeks now…well probably longer than that but it’s become apparent to me over the last few weeks. A friend referred to me as a ‘typical overachiever’ a short while back and it’s stuck in…

Bright Lights

I was so glad my colleague couldn’t see me when she called me yesterday to tell me that she had just been offered another job. I felt a weight lift off my shoulders and a huge grin spread across my face. Don’t get me wrong she’s a lovely person but she doesn’t fit the team…

World, Shut Your Mouth!

I don’t know about you but if I wasn’t blogging or doing social media marketing for other SL businesses I’m fairly sure I’d not be logging in to ‘SL Facebook’ much these days. Forget SL Secrets or The Whisperer THE top place for snidy, underhand, bitchiness IS Facebook and the majority of it is from…

Why I Rise for One Billion Rising and How You Can Too

“I don’t come to Second Life for politics” I’ve read that a lot over the last 2 years on Facebook or other social media forums. I agree! To a point! For those of us that spend a lot of hours here though I think it has to be about more than shopping, adjusting our cheekbones…

If I Were a Rich Girl

If I were a Rich girl? I am a rich girl but maybe not in the way you think. When we hear the word rich we tend to think of money and decadence. Well I do. But I thought this weekend about all the other ways we are rich. At this time of year, with…

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

You gotta love the fact that you can experience all four seasons in one day in Second Life. Now, I seriously LOVE Autumn, it’s my rl favourite time of the year but having felt a bit under the weather this week it actually felt good to throw off the pixel sweaters and jeans and visit…

The Car Park Attendant?

I have a funeral to go to today and I don’t know what to wear.  Usually it’s simple right? Wear black…well in real life that’s easy for me because pretty much everything I wear is black. But, the instructions for the funeral say wear a ‘touch of colour’. Now I’m wondering how much a touch…
