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…

It’s not just a place…it’s home

I think it’s possible I’ve rezzed, partially decorated and de rezzed upwards of 20 different houses in the last few months. That is about to change. The main issue was that I was using houses on a platform on my sim TaKe Heart which meant I had to be frugal with prims and I’m not…

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…

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…

Senses Working Overtime

It’s been one of those questions round a dinner party table…If you had to lose one sense out of sight or hearing which would you choose? I’ll state right now that my preference if put in that position would be to lose my sight. I adore sound. I love music…I couldn’t bear the thought of…

Do Blondes Have Their Fun But Brunettes Do it Better?

I may swap my hair style several times a day but I do tend to stick with a hair colour in SL for years, even if i do swap it out now and again for a particular look in photos etc I always go back to the same colour. I had a very long Brunette…

This is Where the Magic Happens

Oh if only *laughs* I was showing a friend around my new house a couple of days ago and as I showed him the partially (at the time) decorated bedroom he said ‘so this is where the magic happens’. It gave me quite the chuckle to myself. Oh the irony! Well, now I’ve finished decorating…

Relax, Chill, Unwind & Repeat

I’m looking forward to this weekend more than usual. Last weekend was a public holiday in the UK but it was also my daughters 21st birthday. My Saturday was spent running around in real life preparing for her BBQ party. My house was full of 21 year olds and while I like all her friends…

What Happens if I Click This? Updating my Blogroll

I spent a good couple of hours on Spotify last night all because of one song. I heard the song at a club and looked up the artist on spotify and after deciding to download the whole album I started to click through on the related artists links. Several downloads and hours later I had…

Mind Your Beeswax Mother!

I titled this post as that phrase is something my youngest daughter says to me when she thinks I’m trying to nose too deep into her business. It’s difficult not to after the last few months when she’s been sick and I’ve had to be far more ‘parental’ than usual to actually back off and…

Even Angels Get a Little Mucky Sometimes…

I did one of those facebook quizzes the other day that set questions for my friends to answer to ascertain how well your friends know you. Now, obviously, this all just a bit of fun and games. I’m well aware of how well my closest friends know me…sometimes it’s uncomfortably well. That said none of…
