Pleasure in the Pathless Woods

Pleasure in the Pathless Woods

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep Sea, and music in its roar: I love not Man the less, but Nature more, From these our interviews, in which I steal From all I may be, or have [...]

Bloom not Gloom

Bloom not Gloom

Second Life may be on the cusp of moving to Spring...hell, the calendar might be saying it's Spring in real life but the weather has other ideas. In the UK we're heading into a another cold snap. Two weeks ago we were covered in snow with bitterly cold temperatures. My part of the country is [...]

Nature Party

Nature Party

I can't quite believe it's Friday already. The week has simply flown by with me flailing about from day to day looking more like a bug-eyed crazy woman.  I've talked before about how I find it hard to say no (get your mind out of the gutter I don't mean like that). There are people [...]

Retreat in Peace

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 [...]

Paradise by the Poolside Lights

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 [...]

No Time for Fairweather Friends

No Time for Fairweather Friends

I adore my close girl friends circle. Now, I've been in SL a long time...coming up on 10 years in November and SL friendships have come and gone for lots of different reasons. My close friends circle have all been round the block a few times too....none of us are newbies when it comes to [...]

Look Who’s Coming to Dinner

Look Who’s Coming to Dinner

The beauty of SL for me has always been about people. I have met people from countries that I will probably never get the opportunity to visit. Even the team I work with at MadPea is made up of people from several nationalities...Finnish, Italian, American, Estonian, British, Dutch...the list goes on. And all those people [...]

Warmth, the Word of the Season

Just loving decorating at this time of year. Anyone who has read my profile in world knows that I am a huge fan of all things Italian...the food, the wine, the people, the culture, the history...ok so maybe not such a big fan of their driving, but everything else gets a big ole tick in [...]

Imagine If Dreams Came True What Would Happen With Me and You

I feel I need to start this post with an apology of sorts. I have been so consumed with organising and running the MadPea Celebrity Auction for almost two weeks now that I have been quite the slacker blogger! That said, the Celebrity Auction is in it's final day, the amount of money raised is [...]
