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…

Closer to Home

I had a very long day at work yesterday but a joyful one. I usually finish work mid-afternoon as I start super early in the morning. I’m a morning person so this works for me but today I had to work until later in the day to attend a meeting. I decided to drive to…

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

Rainbow Sprinkle Bottom Burps

It’s Friday and a long weekend so I figured I’d have some fun with the post title…read on to find out more! I was always told it takes less muscles to smile than frown when I was growing up. Now I’m pretty sure that’s a myth, in fact, I think I’ve heard somewhere clinical proof…

Leave it all behind

I had one of those odd days yesterday where I found myself wondering about the ex of all ex’s. Voldemort, as we call him. I remember talking to a friend a few weeks ago who had recently gone through a break up and she expressed how she wished she could stop looking to see if…

Slow Burn

My blog post the other day about about male types you encounter in Second Life seemed to go down well. I had lots of messages on Facebook and in world asking me to write more on the subject and I am sure I will…trust me, I get plenty of examples and experiences with guys I…

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…

A Very Rare Fish

I used to play WoW…well I still do occasionally and I am totally a sucker for achievements.  I still have never quite managed to win the Stranglethorn Bay fishing contest so I haven’t yet added the ‘Salty’ title to my list of WoW achievements but I’m pretty sure one day I will. Currently I’m slowly…very…

A Different Corner

I attended Wren Noir Cerise’s talk on photography at the Blogger & Vlogger Network last weekend and picked up so many hints and tips on how to set up my photographs. I’ve worked on several shots this week where I know I included many of the pointers she gave us and loved how those photographs…

I Am Not Afraid

Not only am I British, I’m English. Not only am I English but I’m a Londoner. I live just outside London now but it’s my home city and like every right minded Briton, English person and Londoner I am not afraid. I listened to a radio show today that talked about that exact sentiment. Why…

Ticket to Ride

My friend Tracy has a range of phrases that she uses quite often. They’ve almost become synonymous with her. One of them is ‘Hey! Don’t judge me!’ To be honest, she usually uses that when she’s done or said something she knows damn well is judgeworthy but that’s beside the point.  I’d like to think…

Say Hello or Wave Goodbye

It’s a super short post today as I’m heading off with work today for a course. It’s been a long time since I studied for any formal qualifications but this course will be one day a month for a year and the end will provide me with 2 new qualifications to add to the list….
