The Road Less Traveled

The main reason I started blogging a couple of years ago was as an outlet for a lot of difficult to deal with emotions that I couldn’t express to anyone in Second Life. I recognised that I needed to process them somehow and my blog became an outlet. I’m fast approaching the 2 year mark…

Lazy Weekend

I had to giggle at the name of the post which is named after the skybox and gacha I’m using for the photograph today.  Anyone that knows me knows that I have no idea how to be lazy in SL! I have a bit of a running joke going with my friend Jase, who is…

Everything Means Nothing

Back to work today after my week off. Even though I was unwell the whole week one thing struck me. It was something I’ve always known but this last week really brought it home. Parkinson’s Law, the adage that work expands to fit the time allowed. I looked forward to my week off for ages…

…..Do It Better

Well the sign behind me in this picture actually say Hippies do it better but I was thinking it could say a lot of different….it reminded me of a song I used to play quite often when I dj’d called Brunettes Do It Better…of course I only played it when I was wearing brunette hair….

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

I’ve been taking stock a lot over the last few weeks, if not months, but it’s been the last few days where my mind has cleared enough to focus on the future and it couldn’t be looking brighter. For most of us Second Life is a place we come to relax or escape and I’ve…

Relax, Chill, Unwind & Repeat

I’m looking forward to this weekend more than usual. Last weekend was a public holiday in the UK but it was also my daughters 21st birthday. My Saturday was spent running around in real life preparing for her BBQ party. My house was full of 21 year olds and while I like all her friends…

#BecauseOfSecondLife Challenge

Strawberry Singh had instructions for another great Monday Meme on her blog today and this one was inspired by my friend and enthusiastic Second Life and Virtual World advocate Draxtor Despres.  I love these challenges and when I saw this one hundreds of thoughts raced through my head. So here are a few of mine:…

Keeping Busy and Making Time

Ever heard the phrase “if you want something done ask a busy person”? I remember hearing that phrase when I was younger and not truly understanding what it meant. Recently my already busy second life has taken on a whole new level of busy and I’m loving every minute of it!!! I took some decisions…

I’d Kill for a Reverse Cupid

We’re entering that time of year when everyone loses their damn mind and goes all coochie-cooey over each other with flamboyant and public demonstrations of love. Here’s my opinion… BLAH BLAH BLAH! What I would really love on Valentine’s is someone to permanently take the arrow from last year out of my back so I…

No One Was Expecting That…

I’ve been a little quiet over the last 24-48 hours. Truth is, my family received some sad news and I’ve been processing. I have a beautiful cousin, we were closer as children and then she married and moved to Egypt and we kept up to date on facebook. Almost daily pictures of her and her…

All Good Girls Really Want a Swamp…Don’t they?

Once upon a time there was a girl with a vision. She had seen other girls playing with their beaches and forests and she wanted something to play with herself. But this girl wanted to be different. She wanted a swamp. She wanted the grit, the murkiness and dankness of a living, breathing swamp. While…

As Snug as a Bug in a Rug

I’ve talked a lot about why I like Autumn so much. It’s more than the colours, the cooling of the air and the dropping of the temperature.  The beauty of Autumn for me lies in what is to come. It’s the first stage of the rebirth, the shedding of the leaves, the readying of the…
