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…

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

Two of my Favourite Things

Fashion…no decor…nopes it’s definitely fashion…no no, I love decor more. Truth be told, I can’t make up my mind.  I was advised once to pick either and stick with it from a blogging perspective but I just can’t do it. It’s like being asked to choose your favourite child. Impossible! 6 Republic opened yesterday and…

Not a Care in the World

The weekend is almost upon us! It’s been a short week because of a public holiday in the UK and also been super busy in both lives so it’s literally flown by. It literally just feels like yesterday I was starting my week off when actually it was almost 2 weeks ago. Why does time…

Warm Up – Cool Down

I’ve had a week off work and been super busy planning ahead. I’m a total planner and yes, a little bit of a control freak when it comes to planning my time and making arrangements. I’ve taken lots of photos and planned out several blog posts to get ahead of myself because I know how…

If You Could Read Me Like a Book

I was wondering today what the cover of the book of my life would look like. They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover but as someone who spent a few years working in book publishing sales and marketing I know just how important the cover of a book is to grabbing the…

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…

I Wanna Live in a House, a very Big House in the Country

So I bought myself a larger house than I usually go for. I love decorating so I’m half excited at the thrill of digging through my inventory and unearthing some buried treasures now I have space for them and half nervous of the time it’s going to take me to get going. The great thing…

Je Suis Paris

Only people that have never experienced online friendships think they aren’t real. They are certainly different from conventional friendships but only in the sense that the communication platforms used are different. A lot more written communication in the form of IM’s, emails etc and a lot of less verbal communication and occasionally face-to-face communication via…

Keep the Wolf at Bay…window

First day back at work since 23rd December and I’m sooooo looking forward to getting back! Aside from the fact that I very much enjoy my job and the people I work with, I am, on the whole, a creature of routine and planned work days, in both lives. I’ve written before about how I…

Take a Seat and Pick Up a Book

It’s Roald Dahl’s birthday today – he would have been 100 years old and on the radio this morning they were discussing favourite parts of Roald Dahl books. Just a couple of weeks after Willy Wonka was in the news after the sad death of Gene Wilder it had me thinking about the film. I…
