A little gold and sparkle

I literally just got back from a few days away where I was pretty much working 18 hour days running a conference. I enjoyed it but I’ll admit I’m exhausted. I didn’t get much time to myself, where I thought I would and to cap it all I had a fall while we were packing up…

Joy and Pain

As I mentioned in yesterdays post I am away for a few days at a conference but in true Blue Peter style, here’s one I made earlier! (Sorry – probably only the Brits that will get that reference!). It will be a short post though as I’m making a very bad job of packing for the conference…

Out of Town

Just a few days ago I wrote about changes and how they make me a little anxious, even though I like change and I enjoy a challenge. A month or so ago the Consultant I was a medical secretary to left to pursue several new projects in the UK and across the globe. I’ve met…

Seeking comfort

One of the last things I need to be is a comfort eater but I am.  I hear all these people saying that when they are worried, upset, or stressed they can’t eat or sleep…I’m the polar opposite. I can do both without issue. This time of year there is lots of food, chocolate, cake,…

Change it is a coming.

Change is ever-present and ever-changing.  So far this year though, considering we’re only a week into it has already been a year of changes and more changes to come soon too.  Most people think I’m not a ‘stresser’ but I am…I get super anxious. Not because I dislike change but because, whether it’s a change I…

Slip into something…

It has been a very long and very stressful week in the real world. The first week back after the Christmas holidays has meant a lot of catching up. I work in a hospital and people don’t stop getting sick or needing treatment just because of the holidays and so this week has been all about…

SL Calendar Girls – December 2017

It’s the final Calendar Girls selection of 2017 and shortly after this post is published I will be publishing my favourite 12 images from the last twelve months. I’m not looking forward to having to make that choice from all the amazing photos that made the list each and every month. Each month I choose my…

Keep Dreaming

I’m sure I will post again before New Year but just in case I wanted to wish everyone a very happy, healthy and successful 2018. Thank you for all your support of the blog, and of my many ventures in Second Life throughout the course of 2017. On a personal note I wanted to thank…

Craving Normality

During one of my Dad’s visits a few years ago I told him “Dad, I love you. I spend weeks looking forward to you coming to stay….and every bloody minute you’re here wishing you’d eff off home again”. That’s pretty much my relationship with Christmas too. I do look forward to it. Then by about…

Do You See What I See

I never thought I would get a chance to post a blog today but plans change and it frees up time unexpectedly. My youngest daughter and her boyfriend were planning to stay at my house tonight, as they were here for Christmas Day and are due to be here tomorrow for Boxing Day. She asked if…

Noel, Noel

It’s Christmas Eve and I’m almost done with all the things on the to do list! Not quite, but almost! The real life plans are all in place, the presents are wrapped, the food is bought and prepped as much as possible and I’m hoping for a lazy (ish) Christmas Eve. I may even bust…

BVN Secret Santa – Tabitha Latour

I’m sure lots of you have seen the Blogger and Vlogger Network Secret Santa Blog Swaps going on around social media lately. The deadline is tomorrow and of course I’m completely last minute with mine! I’m an organised last minute person…go figure! Anyway…without further adieu, I’d like to introduce you to the blogger that I was…
