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…

Blogging Applications – Do’s and Don’ts

Trust me, I know how it is. You see one of your favourite stores or events opening blogger applications and you want that assignment so bad! Applications close in a week but you gotta fill that form out right now! In the next 10 seconds….quickly.  Of course, there’s a while to go so you don’t…

Secret Garden

Yesterday was the first real Spring day in the UK where there was heat in the breeze as well as the sun in the sky. I saw my first bumble bee buzzing around too so it must have been warm! There’s something about the sun and warmth of Spring that lifts the spirit and makes…

Reflect not Deflect

Ok we’re back to deep and meaningful today! Have you ever met one of those people who has a lot of drama around them but nothing is ever their fault? They really are quite common in Second Life and one of the most common character traits they show is the deflection of anything negative. They…

My Funny Valentine

How young are we when we become aware of love? I was putting together this Cheeky Pea set on my sim, TaKe Heart while chatting to a friend when my daughter and her boyfriend came to visit in real life. (I say visit, technically she lives with at home but you wouldn’t know it). Her…

Reindeers aren’t just for Christmas!

This is me holding a reindeer. It’s a cute reindeer! It’s a nice picture, I like it. I could make an outrageous political statement about saving reindeers! Maybe I could argue that using reindeers as slave labour to drive around some old fat bloke for 24 hours without a break is criminal. Yes! I could…

Aiming for the Perfect Tree

I’ve been super busy this weekend and one of my top priorities has been completing the ‘winterisation’ of my public sim TaKe Heart. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I much prefer Spring or Autumn as seasons but there’s something about winter that, ironically, brings a warmth to the soul.  I wasn’t sure…

I Can See for Miles and Miles and Miles and Miles

I remember as a child going for days out at the seaside and begging my Dad to give me a few pence to use the telescopes along the beach front. I didn’t really have a clue what I was looking at or seeing and definitely had no idea about how to focus or use the…

Time Passes. Listen. Time Passes

With everything going on in the world it’s a joy to have a safe haven in SL. Somewhere that is peaceful and quiet and a million miles away from the fears and stress of real life. This is a new area that I’ve put together on my sim TaKe Heart which is hopefully just that…

Planning Ahead

On my facebook feed this morning was a countdown of the days to Christmas….sod Halloween that shit was scary! It’s definitely time to start ordering gifts, writing cards, thinking about the plans for that one single day in December that will have many of us stressing out for the next 2 months! There’s a lot…

I Miss You When I Can’t Sleep

Thank you everyone that took part in the poll earlier this week about content of DJ sets! I had the feedback in mind when I put together my set on Friday at Blithe and got some great feedback on the mix of tunes so thank you all for the input! The title of the blog is…

Let the Music Play… What do you like to Hear?

I was chatting with my friend Sady the other day about the music I play at my DJ sets and it got me thinking about how to get the right balance for the audience at my sets. This isn’t about what genre of music you play, though for the record, my preference is for alternative…
