A Clean Desk is a Sign of a Sick Mind

A Clean Desk is a Sign of a Sick Mind

I used to work with someone when I was younger that said that to me all the time...I am not a tidy desk person at all, in either life! That's had to change over the years as, in real life, we've moved more to a hotdesking approach to office space. Late last year I gave [...]

Gettin’ Husky

Gettin’ Husky

It was a short but very busy week at real life work and SL was no different. I am focused on getting the Calendar posts done and hitting any blogging deadlines I have. Someone asked me what I would do with the time I gain from not doing the calendars again once they are completed [...]

Raise Your Glass

Raise Your Glass

No sooner is Christmas behind us but we start to think about how we will see in the New Year. For once I am actually looking forward to the new year celebrations in Second Life. I don't have any firm plans per se but I know I will be spending it with Mr Smith and [...]

If I Ever Let My Head Down…

If I Ever Let My Head Down…

...It will be to admire my shoes! I recently announced that I would be ceasing the Calendar posts on the blog, for at least a year, and one of the things I will be doing instead is focusing on my own blogging a little more. Blogging is my hobby. I work RL and I work [...]

When You Wish Upon a Star

When You Wish Upon a Star

I'm writing this while nervously waiting to see if a Government press conference is called for later today regarding a toughening of Coronavirus rules in the England. I have been looking forward to the first Christmas with my grandson and I'll be extremely miffed if that is now in jeopardy as I have the whole [...]

The Christmas Dream

The Christmas Dream

The news in real life regarding Christmas festivities might not be good but SL is the place where we put all the fears and worries about rl on hold, albeit fleetingly, to enjoy the Christmas spirit in our virtual world. I've loved seeing everyone's photos of the season and yesterday I found myself with a [...]
