In Repose

Happy Sunday! I was thinking today about what Sunday's used to be like when I was a child. Shops didn't open at all on Sunday's then and the pubs opened for a couple of hours at lunchtime and then closed again until later in the evening. It was housework day in our home too. We [...]

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 [...]

Oh, I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside

One of my absolute favourites annual events threw open their doors...as much asĀ  beach can have a door anyways!

Spring Respite

Spring Respite

Last time I blogged I mentioned how limited my time was due to recovery from my surgery. Almost a month has passed since then and this is my first blog post. I've been decorating one of the regions for One Billion Rising and included this scene as one of the relaxing areas and it doubled [...]

Festive Fondue

Festive Fondue

KraftWork have single-handedly saved Christmas. I mean, Mr M and our new daughter will still decorate a tree because we save them and name them and keep them as a memento buuuuut let's be honest....decorating a tree in Second Life is torturous. KraftWork have saved those hours of trying to find the end of branch [...]
