Fiesta Forever

So, I’m going to follow on today with my story about ‘Commando Karen’ because people have been asking. This is work event mishap number two… I joined a new company a few years back. Starting work on the Monday I was told it was the company conference that weekend on Friday and Saturday and I…

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…

Sssh It’s a Secret

I’m umming and arring about what to write about today…mainly because I prefer to think on things for a bit before writing about them. I’m the kind of person that likes to take a problem or issue, hold it up and peer at it from all angles, put it down again, think about it some…

Two’s Company

A couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to collaborate with my twinny, fellow blogger and friend Divos on a presentation for the Blogger & Vlogger Network. Our subject du jour was Collaborating with Other Bloggers and during the presentation we set a bit of a challenge for the bloggers of BVN to collaborate…

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…

Whimsy and Wonder – Dust Bunny Speed Edit

Today is a day for escapism, wonder and whimsy. It’s what Second Life is for…escaping the real world and it’s many horrors. I’m not going to focus, in this post, on my thoughts about the recent real world events and instead, hopefully, provide some lighter, happier, relief. Dust Bunny have released a new gacha set…

It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding – Speed Edit Vlog

The Arcade opens in a couple of days and Dead Dollz have a stunning set that comprises several different elements. I’m focussing today on the decor elements of the set for The House of Brides. It’s a delightful, extensive set with lingerie, bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses to wear as well as a Bridal store…

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…

Oh Honey, I Don’t Care

Have you noticed how, in both lives, as soon as someone is prepared to stick their head above the parapet, there is always someone willing to take aim and try to pull them back down again? You see it in SL a lot with anyone that tries to do anything new or innovative…everyone is suddenly…

Ponder in Bloom – Flickr Group Spammers

My post today is going to include a plea to people who misuse Flickr. I understand why they do it. I even understand what they think they achieve from doing it. The irony is that while on the face of it they may look, at first glance, like they have achieved their goal…they really haven’t….

Bloom Where we are Planted

I promise I really didn’t plan on having my butt on display two days running but it seems by butt cheeks operate on the same system as London Buses! You don’t see one for ages then 2 of them come along at the same time!! It’s the start of the easter holidays and Spring is…
