She’s Leaving Home

It’s a long weekend coming up in the UK with a public holiday on Monday and I’ve got to say I’m really looking forward to it. there are a few things you can guarantee about August Bank Holiday weekend and these are: The weather will be awful The roads will be at a standstill If…

The Value of Time

Everyone’s time has value but one thing I’ve noticed is how much others don’t always value the time of other people. Like the debate on designers making items for different bodies. I think I’m going to talk about that in more detail at some point in the future but it is one example of people…

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…

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…

Rest and Be Thankful

One man’s rest is another man’s work. We all find different ways to relax and chill out and what works for one isn’t always what is going to work for another. I have a friend that is constantly telling me I need to take more breaks, chill out and enjoy SL. What he doesn’t get…

Secret Garden

Yesterday was the first real Spring day in the UK where there was heat in the breeze as well as the sun in the sky. I saw my first bumble bee buzzing around too so it must have been warm! There’s something about the sun and warmth of Spring that lifts the spirit and makes…

A Picture Postcard

I’ve been seeing lots of awesome pictures the last few days and not in the usual places! I visited The Vordun Museum and Gallery, owned and operated by my very dear friend Jake Vordun, this last weekend for the opening of his latest exhibit ‘Sincerely Yours’. I’ve known for a long time that Jake was…

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…
