Choose your Battles

My battles over the last few days have been against myself. Feeling grumpy and moody (honestly I know I’m a woman n stuff but that’s really not like me) and struggling with a need to sleep versus a desire to keep myself busy til crazy hours of the morning. Nothing bad had happened to put…

I Never Stray Too Far From the Sidewalk

“Aren’t we a pair of old cynics” I said to a friend over the weekend as we talked doom and gloom about the state of the average SL friendship and relationship. Don’t get me wrong I’m not a negative person in any shape or form but I am quite pragmatic when it comes to a…

You Can Send No Transfer Love…maybe

Quite often my posts here are inspired by something I’ve seen on Facebook over the preceding days and today is no different. Gifting items in Second Life can be a little hit and miss. You might know if the person is online but with so many scams and phishing ‘bots’ in Second Life many of…

Get on your Bike

There’s been a tv programme this week that everyone has been talking about! We’ve all been waiting with baited breath to find out the fate of our favourites…yes! It was the final of the Great British Bake Off! I’m actually watching it now as I write this and while I will probably know who the…

Let the Music Play… What do you like to Hear?

I was chatting with my friend Sady the other day about the music I play at my DJ sets and it got me thinking about how to get the right balance for the audience at my sets. This isn’t about what genre of music you play, though for the record, my preference is for alternative…

All Around Me are Familiar Faces

My sister and I are like chalk and cheese. There is a 7, almost 8, year age gap between us and the circumstances we were brought up in were very different. My parents were stricter with me and financially they were struggling which is part of why they waited 7 years before having another child….

I Am What I Am

  There’s been on much chatter this week on social media about the relationship between bloggers and designers and also the requirements for blogging for each store. I’ve kept reasonably quiet on most of the posts, not because I don’t agree or I do but because there will always be someone who does or doesn’t…

Chase the Fallen Leaves

I haven’t met anyone, in real life, or in SL that doesn’t love Autumn. As some of you know I DJ on Fridays at Blithe and Harlow, the owner of the sim has been hard at work giving the sim a more autumnal feel. Who doesn’t like to feel warm and cozy? Autumn, the year’s…

You Can’t Save Me

I was talking to my friend Sady yesterday and I mentioned how much I am enjoying this year in Second Life. We grow as people by making changes to our lives and with the exception of my ‘constants’ (my very close circle of friends) almost everything has changed in one way or another. Sometimes they…

Fluffy Friday Fantastical Frolics

It’s Friday and I’m in cute mode! I don’t do super cute often but I have my moments and I had been wanting a reason to go back and take a photo in this particular room at Fantastical Dreams. As I mentioned on a previous post the large LAQ windmill on the sim has some…

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…

R E S P E C T – Find Out What It Means to Me

I can respect almost anyone. Sometimes it’s because of their beliefs. Sometimes because of their talent and skills. Sometimes because of their character and personality. I don’t have to like someone to respect them and I also don’t have to always agree with them either. But, let’s face it, it helps if I do. I’m…
