Be a Champ, not a Chump

I’ve sat staring at this for a while not being able to decide what to write about today. Not because I don’t have something to write about…I do. But because I’m debating whether I should write about it. I’ve decided on the whole not to and I’ll tell you why.  This weekend held a lot…

Skate Mates

My rl and sl have collided of late in such a way that a peak of activity in both worlds have combusted at the same time. I’m always pretty busy but this last week I would guess I’ve been the busiest I’ve been for a couple of years. The difference between now and a couple…

Sunday Girl

I like order, and routine…pretty sure that’s not going to surprise people that know me well. I have to be organised and methodical in approach to my rl and sl tasks in order to get things completed and it works for me most of the time. Until, that is. the proverbial spanner gets thrown in…

Music for Love

What do I even write about today with the news that Britain is waking up to? When you went to bed hearing the news that an explosion had rocked a concert in Manchester and there were fatalities. When you wake up to the news that 22 people, some of them children, have already lost their lives…

Ticket to Ride

My friend Tracy has a range of phrases that she uses quite often. They’ve almost become synonymous with her. One of them is ‘Hey! Don’t judge me!’ To be honest, she usually uses that when she’s done or said something she knows damn well is judgeworthy but that’s beside the point.  I’d like to think…

Not a thing to wear!

If you’re anything like me you have a an inventory simply bursting to he seams with clothes, hair, shoes and other accessories and yet you stand there some days and think “I have nothing to wear.” Or you find a lovely top you want to wear and are pretty convinced you have no pants, shorts…

Laying the Groundwork

Time for change! I don’t really feel like I achieved very much over the weekend. Certainly not the amount of work I had planned to get completed anyways! I did start a fairly significant overhaul of my sim. I don’t know about you but I am so over snow now and I found myself trying…

That Girl is Awesome

I suspect that many of us have all had a little giggle at times when we’ve read a profile or a pick about family or friends stating things like ‘If you hurt them I will track you down and hurt you’ or some other such ridiculous threat. You have to wonder what is going through…

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…

Into the Wilderness

Busy, busy, busy and it’s just how I like it. I have to admit to being somewhat of a sourpuss over the last week or so.  Many of us have periods in our lives where we feel at a low ebb and often we know what has triggered it. Sometimes it comes out of the…

Breathe New Life Into Me

It was bitterly cold when I left the house in RL this morning and just like this picture there was a frost on my breath as I ran out to let the car run for a few minutes to warm up before the short journey to work. A situation at work yesterday, combined with the…

Beep Beep n Beep Beep Yeah!

There’s been an incident this week of someone passing off, or seemingly attempting to pass off, someone else’s photographs as their own work by re-posting pictures to flickr under their own name. For some reason the people that do this pick on the photographers whose work and style of photography is very easily noticeable and…
