Poolside Gourmet

Poolside Gourmet

The start of the month is always busier for me than the latter part of the month and one of the reasons I look forward to the last half of the month is that it gives me time to blog. It's how I unwind from the busy times and honestly the reason I keep on [...]

Where the World Gets Put to Rights

Where the World Gets Put to Rights

This is the kind of place, with the kind of view, where I could imagine sitting for hours with a friend and just putting the world to rights over a few drinks. I'd love that kind of big porch, preferably somewhere warm, but not humid and right on the beach. The name of this house [...]

Inner Peace

Inner Peace

I had instance last week to talk to someone that I haven't spoken to for over 5 years. This person betrayed me several years ago in a very hurtful way and I cut them out of my life. I'm not particularly forgiving but I also don't go out of my way to be bitter or [...]

Spring Laundry

Spring Laundry

I need SL and my therapeutic blogging more than ever! Being able to create beauty in a virtual world really is a 'breath of fresh air' right now. I spent a few hours yesterday going through the items I had received in blogger packs. I often see comments from creators about event bloggers 'taking things [...]

Open Season

The title might seem quite random. It's just two words from a song that I have on loop in my head today.I'm sorry. I've woken up in a terribly melancholy mood and I've sat looking at this page for half an hour thinking about what to write and nothing is springing to mind. I had [...]

Frost Nook

Good morning. So, it only really dawned on me yesterday that we had a week til Christmas. I hadn't really thought about it but sort of had it in my head that it was a couple of weeks away. I'm pretty much on top of things in real life. I need to send something down [...]

Stacks of Green Paper in his Red Right Hand

Back to rl work today and after enjoying my few days off work the weekend wasn't the best. It was fairly productive though and sometimes that's the most you can hope for. I have a heap of real life work and emails to catch up on so it's going to be a shorter than usual post [...]

The Magic Door

The Magic Door

   "Don't bang your head on a wall. Find a door and knock on it"Maybe it's lack of sleep but I am feeling a little philosophical this morning. I take photos 2/3 at a time and have the bulk of each post done ahead of time. Today I was struggling for a title for the [...]
