A Different Corner

I attended Wren Noir Cerise’s talk on photography at the Blogger & Vlogger Network last weekend and picked up so many hints and tips on how to set up my photographs. I’ve worked on several shots this week where I know I included many of the pointers she gave us and loved how those photographs…

A Picture Postcard

I’ve been seeing lots of awesome pictures the last few days and not in the usual places! I visited The Vordun Museum and Gallery, owned and operated by my very dear friend Jake Vordun, this last weekend for the opening of his latest exhibit ‘Sincerely Yours’. I’ve known for a long time that Jake was…

Mellow Yellow is Springing Up All Around

The clocks went forward in the UK this weekend starting British Summer Time and how did the weather welcome this change in name?¬†With Storm Katie of course! Winds of up to 100 mph battered most of the south of England and Wales last night and as someone who sleeps with the bedroom window open 365…

Do What You Love and Love What You Do

Wise, wise words from the creators of BackBone at Lost & Found this round. As many of my readers and friends know I made a massive decision to close the club I had owned in Second Life for almost 6 years. The core reason…I just didn’t love it anymore. I loved the people, the team,…

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…

With Words the World is at your Feet

Up until May of this year I had blogged erratically using a Blogspot site. In May I made the decision to move to WordPress and put a renewed enthusiasm into blogging and I haven’t looked back since. I don’t think it’s necessarily the change in platform that did it…though I do find this platform suits…

I Should Cocoa!

  It’s another busy weekend in real life for me with family events and functions when all I really want to do is curl up in front of my SL fire and enjoy the winter season in Second Life. I am so much more of an autumn and winter person in both lives it’s untrue….

Life in a Bauble

I tend to live my life in a bubble of sorts and it seems from time to time that my perception of myself is way off from other peoples perception of me. I’m not saying that’s always a bad thing as has been proved this week with random compliments while out shopping to being invited…

The Broken Body Clock

This whole extra hour in bed sounds like a great idea but in practice it doesn’t work. In the UK British Summer Time officially ended in the early hours of Sunday morning when our clocks went back an hour. Technically this meant an extra hour in bed which sort of worked out on Sunday morning…
