Sweet Southern Charm

Savannah is the latest impressive mainstore release from Galland Homes. It’s a large family size home with spacious living areas on both floors. I actually really like this style of house, having bought one similar a couple of years ago, and while this one is probably a little big for me on my own to…

Thoughts of You

Compliments are hard. Not giving them…receiving them. I was explaining to a friend last night that I find it incredibly difficult to know what to say other than ‘thanks’.  My first reaction when being complimented is to deny and find someone or something else that should be complimented other than myself. I think it’s a…

Girls Gotta Glamp!

It’s been a while since I did a video of my decorating and I really enjoy these so I hope you do to. As usual I’ll start with the video so you can see the scene being put together. The scene was inspired and built around the Cheeky Pea RARE Treehouse from The Epiphany current…

Workplace Mishaps – Who not to stand near at a drinks party!

I was wondering what to write today and a friend literally just minutes ago told me about an accident she had with a bottle of sparkling water at her desk and it reminded me of something that happened to me once. I am prone to having mishaps at work functions. I will one day tell…

All things to all people

So, I admit it…I had a teeny, tiny meltdown last night. A perfect storm of feeling a little under the weather for a couple of days, rl stress, sl stress, a splash of disappointment in a couple of situations combined with tiredness and frustration with myself I took a nosedive into feeling sorry for myself…

Surf Hideaway

You know how some words crop up and then stick in your mind. I played a song during a dj set that I hadn’t heard for a while last week. It was a song from a film soundtrack – Blue Crush – and ever since then the word crush, and it’s different uses and how…

There are places I remember

I’ve been a little quiet over the last few days for a number of reasons. SL going down as I was about to do some work, RL needing to drive around the country trying to find a plumbing part so my en suite bathroom would work again, and watching a lot of the news from…

Retreat in Peace

It’s been ironic that while building this set it’s been absolutely tipping down in the UK as we’ve had two days of almost constant rain…and there’s been nothing tropical about it.  There’s been a few ironies in Second Life I’ve observed over the last few days too…and not the ‘fly in chardonnay’ type….that’s just crappy…

Outside in or inside out? – Speed Edit Vlog

During her recent talk at the Blogger and Vlogger Network, Wendz Tempest talked about a recent increase in ‘outside inside’ photos of Second Life. It’s something I had been oblivious to, but I really liked the examples Wendz gave and the links to her own work. I told her I was going to give it…

Time to Feel Good – Hive Speed Edit

Camping trips as a child were fraught with irritations, bad weather and arguments but I still look back on them through rose tinted glasses. I do remember the bad but I remember firstly the good times. Playing badminton, long days at the beach, running around free for hours, making new friends who you would declare…

Paradise by the Poolside Lights

I’m not going to be writing a huge amount today.  As some of you know from previous posts my daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease last year and hasn’t responded very well to the treatments she’s had so far. Today is surgery day…she’s having a section of her bowel removed. It’s a fairly common operation…

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…
