Winter Soothe Me for I Need Your Warmth

I had a memory pop up on Facebook yesterday which said “I never would have thought things could change so much in only a year. I wonder what next December will be like’. I shared the memory with the words ‘well so far it’s been bloody awesome’ and it truly has. There are, as always,…

Into the Wilderness

Busy, busy, busy and it’s just how I like it. I have to admit to being somewhat of a sourpuss over the last week or so.  Many of us have periods in our lives where we feel at a low ebb and often we know what has triggered it. Sometimes it comes out of the…

Weekend

It’s the weekend and I love nothing more than having a long list of things to do and tasks to finish…which is just as well because  that is definitely the case this weekend as I catch up after a hectic week. My computer screen has become a giant post-it note with little notes surrounding it…

Everything Means Nothing

Back to work today after my week off. Even though I was unwell the whole week one thing struck me. It was something I’ve always known but this last week really brought it home. Parkinson’s Law, the adage that work expands to fit the time allowed. I looked forward to my week off for ages…

The Outer Garden, My Inner Sanctum

The Interview, the latest game from MadPea has launched and I’m now on a mad dash to catch up on my blogging commitments. While that’s partly because I have a duty to the creators I blog for it’s also because I miss it. Blogging was one of my lifelines last year.  Finding sims to take…

If Pride is a Sin then I’m a Happy Sinner

Pride – one of the 7 Deadly Sins is often, and in my opinion better, known as Vanity.  While I am using pictures for this post that could well portray a certain amount of vanity about my Second Life Avatar (and I have no problem admitting I am fussy about how my avatar looks and…

Putting a Spring in my Step

I can see the future. I can predict without a shadow of a doubt that wine will play a huge part in my life during the next 8 hours. Those of you who follow, or my friends on facebook, know that this week has been extremely challenging with my youngest daughter being taken to hospital….

The Future’s so Bright I’m Gonna Need Shades

I love Mondays…I’ve always loved Mondays. I was explaining why to a group of friends the other day and I realised that when I first started to tell people I liked Mondays it was probably just to be different from all the moaners and groaners who were bitching about it being the first day of…

Join Me in My Neverland

I never thought that a situation contained within Second Life could change me fundamentally but it has. When I became so emotionally invested in a person, a situation and, most importantly, a belief, I didn’t realise what would happen when the rug was pulled out from under me.  I’ve spent months cocooned in my own little…

The Peace of Mind that Comes with Acceptance

I shared a post on Facebook earlier today. It said ‘You’ll save yourself a lot of heartache if you accept that some questions just don’t have answers”. As is often the case those kinds of memes get me thinking and this one was no different. Actually, I believe most questions do have answers but we…

Those Priceless Moments

Life can be hard…sometimes it’s a few bumps on the path and sometimes it’s really major roadblocks that make you stop and assess what is going on, who you are and what you believe in. We’re built to deal with the bumps without thinking about them too much…unless there are suddenly lots of bumps and…
