Starlite, Starbright, the star I see tonight

A couple of weeks ago someone I had met recently and asked me to give them a link to my blog as “the link in your profile is wrong”. I gave him the link and he immediately came back and again and said “no, it’s not working. That’s a different blog”.  I must admit I…

Santa Baby…I’ve Been an Awful Good Girl

I talked earlier in the week about Christmas songs and Santa Baby has to be up there as one of my favourites. The song was in my mind as I took this picture. Everything is a bit of a blur at the moment as the rush to get ready for the Christmas season takes grip….

It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like….

The radio at work is starting to ramp up the number of Christmas songs it plays per day. When I was growing up, and probably on through my 20’s,  the rush to be Christmas number 1 in the UK was huge news. There would be betting odds with all the bookies giving odds on whether…

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…

Oh Baby It’s Cold Outside

I’m not sure whether other bloggers write all the details of their posts in one go or do it in bits and pieces til it comes together as I do. The picture for this post was taken and prepared at least 48 hours past from when I am typing this. 18 hours ago I listed…

It May Not be the Right Time

My friend shared a cover of a Daft Punk song on Facebook yesterday. It was actually one of my favourite songs by them Instant Crush. That sent me on a bit of a Daft Punk day and when I listened to Something About Us I became very nostalgic for a time many years ago on…

Slip Sliding Away

Sunday is the day I like to have a think about the week past and the week ahead. I had yet another of my Monday morning conversations with someone. The conversation always starts with the other person thinking I’m joking or being sarcastic about liking Mondays. Then there’s incredulity at the realisation that I mean…

Roman Holiday

Thanksgiving is over (though I’m a Brit so it never really started for me) and Black Friday marked a pretty crazy day for shopping and events in SL.  Tannenbaum by Prism Events opened it’s doors yesterday too and many of us had been waiting for this event to open pretty much since the day it…

What Is the True Meaning of Christmas to you?

I am missing a major event in my Christmas calendar this year. Every year for the last 3-4 years the company I worked for organised a Christmas Dinner at a local homeless charity. The majority of the staff helped out. The night before we’d be roasting turkeys and peeling vegetables ready for the day ahead….

Time to Welcome Winter!

It’s the first of the month but this ain’t no ordinary month…this is December! The first day of advent (sorta, it was actually the 29th November). But it’s the first day that many of us will be opening a little window on our advent calendars as we count down to Christmas Day.  I’ve not had…

Love, I Get So Lost Sometimes

I’m not gonna lie…this week has been tough on my emotions and my patience…and Lord knows I didn’t have a whole heap of the latter in the first place! I talked a few weeks ago about the shocking news that a cousin of mine had passed very suddenly in Egypt. She was buried the next…

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….
