Goodbye, TaKe Heart

I’ve put off writing this post….wondering if I might change my mind, but, as the day draws nearer I’m still quite sure that this is the right thing to do. I’m going to let my sim, TaKe Heart, go.  It has been a glorious 8 months with TaKe Heart as my home, and I know…

Blogging Applications – Do’s and Don’ts

Trust me, I know how it is. You see one of your favourite stores or events opening blogger applications and you want that assignment so bad! Applications close in a week but you gotta fill that form out right now! In the next 10 seconds….quickly.  Of course, there’s a while to go so you don’t…

Fairground Attraction

It’s the end of my week off work and it’s been a very busy and exciting week full of new friendships, laughter, fun and…well…it’s me we’re talking about so there was work too. With my FaMESHed head on we were busy finalising plans for the 5th anniversary round of FaMESHed which opens on the 1st…

Ladies & Gentlemen…wear sunscreen!

Now this blog post is supposed to be about suncream. I’m not really sure how to work suncream into a blog post in Second Life as with our every day beautiful skies in our glorious virtual world we don’t have to worry about skin burning and the dangers of UV rays. We also don’t have to…

Rest and Be Thankful

One man’s rest is another man’s work. We all find different ways to relax and chill out and what works for one isn’t always what is going to work for another. I have a friend that is constantly telling me I need to take more breaks, chill out and enjoy SL. What he doesn’t get…

Fringe Benefits

I really enjoyed doing the vlog yesterday and I have more planned but I am going to mix it up with doing regular blog posts too for now. Part of the reason for that is that I have a routine and plan in place for blogging and while I quite enjoy change I have to…

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…

It’s got to be….PERFECT!

I always have a tune in my head while I’m blogging and today is no different. The song invading my mind today is Fairground Attraction’s Perfect. It’s been a long while since I heard that tune but I found myself humming the melody while I edited this photo.  See, the person in this photo with…

Reflect not Deflect

Ok we’re back to deep and meaningful today! Have you ever met one of those people who has a lot of drama around them but nothing is ever their fault? They really are quite common in Second Life and one of the most common character traits they show is the deflection of anything negative. They…

My Funny Valentine

How young are we when we become aware of love? I was putting together this Cheeky Pea set on my sim, TaKe Heart while chatting to a friend when my daughter and her boyfriend came to visit in real life. (I say visit, technically she lives with at home but you wouldn’t know it). Her…

New Additions at TaKe Heart

Over the last week or so I’ve been working on a freshen up of my sim, TaKe Heart. I’m so over winter weather in both lives and while I have to put up with it a wee bit longer in real life there is absolutely no reason to in Second Life right? I decided to…
