Fiesta Forever

So, I’m going to follow on today with my story about ‘Commando Karen’ because people have been asking. This is work event mishap number two… I joined a new company a few years back. Starting work on the Monday I was told it was the company conference that weekend on Friday and Saturday and I…

Workplace Mishaps – Who not to stand near at a drinks party!

I was wondering what to write today and a friend literally just minutes ago told me about an accident she had with a bottle of sparkling water at her desk and it reminded me of something that happened to me once. I am prone to having mishaps at work functions. I will one day tell…

All things to all people

So, I admit it…I had a teeny, tiny meltdown last night. A perfect storm of feeling a little under the weather for a couple of days, rl stress, sl stress, a splash of disappointment in a couple of situations combined with tiredness and frustration with myself I took a nosedive into feeling sorry for myself…

Summer Games and Volleyball Playing Flamingo

I know they say things change fast in Second Life…but boy oh boy is that true. My thoughts on a particular situation have changed and developed every day. I’ve gone to bed every night convinced I now have all the information I need to make decisions, move forward, embrace changes and then the next day…

Blue Water

Seriously loving seeing all the summertime posts that are about on my feed at the moment. Much more, in truth, than I enjoy the summery weather in real life. I work in a non air-conditioned office, where the windows only open a small amount, and I rely on a fan to waft around warm air…

Surf Hideaway

You know how some words crop up and then stick in your mind. I played a song during a dj set that I hadn’t heard for a while last week. It was a song from a film soundtrack – Blue Crush – and ever since then the word crush, and it’s different uses and how…

Mainstoresl.com A new shopping resource for SL Residents

I’ve just launched a new website called mainstoresl.com and wanted to take a few minutes to let you know about it in more detail. When I first started blogging I wrote a regular feature called Mainstore Monday, where I visited a main store and wrote a blog post about it. Now, I love shopping events…I’m…

Call me at Diner Time – Speed Edit

I finally got around to doing another speed edit vlog!!! I really enjoy doing these and had been planning for this one since I received the diner set from unKindness. Obviously, this release, at Collabor88, ties in perfectly with so many of the items available at The Vintage Fair and a few other vintage and…

There are places I remember

I’ve been a little quiet over the last few days for a number of reasons. SL going down as I was about to do some work, RL needing to drive around the country trying to find a plumbing part so my en suite bathroom would work again, and watching a lot of the news from…

Beat the Devil’s Tattoo

My friend Meri talked about politics on her blog yesterday…well in fact, she sort of apologised for talking about it but as someone who follows politics both my side, and the other side, of the pond, I found her post interesting and thought provoking. It made me feel a little guilty as ridiculing a particular…

Retreat in Peace

It’s been ironic that while building this set it’s been absolutely tipping down in the UK as we’ve had two days of almost constant rain…and there’s been nothing tropical about it. ¬†There’s been a few ironies in Second Life I’ve observed over the last few days too…and not the ‘fly in chardonnay’ type….that’s just crappy…
