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…

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 – The Final Twelve 2017

Each month I have selected my favourite photographs from the SL Calendar Girls Flickr Group. During 2017 around 46,000 photos have been added to the group pool from hundreds upon hundreds of Second Life’s bloggers and photographers.  Every single photo is viewed and considered for each months selection and then posted here on the blog….

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…

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…

Room with a view

The tiredness is real! I need this bed to just fall into and sleep til around the 28th December right now.  I managed to get some time to take a few photos over the few days which I’m hoping to get blogged before Christmas. The photos are obviously the bit that takes the longest so…

End of the Night

What keeps you up at night? Currently, with me, it’s what to get people for Christmas gifts. In between rl work, SL work and blogging it’s pretty much top of my mind. I thought I had the main ones I needed in Second Life all sorted. I had a plan for Christmas Day, an item saved  as…
