Stop and look

You know that saying "Stop and smell the roses?"

I keep trying to remind myself to do that. So this morning on the way to my bus I stopped to smell a few flowers. Slugs!!!

Remind me not to touch people's plants when it's been warm and damp!

Yes I know the saying refers to life etc etc.

I just figured why not stop and smell the plants. I walk past these gorgeous gardens every day and often think I'd love to smell the flowers. So I did and then jumped back like the atypical person who had come face to face with a mouse.

Still, I guess the home owners probably got their mornings amusement from that.

Did you know these critters climbed up plants? No, neither did I.

I have always seen them on the pavement but actually never climb a plant.

Anyhow stopping to smell the roses applies to life as well.

Every day I see the same people on my facebooks complaining about life etc etc.

I want to tell these people, STOP and smell the roses.

There is always something sweet if you take the time to look and appreciate it.

Yes it can be hard, believe me I know that full well.

However, we are all masters of our own destinies and have to accept the responsibility of these.

So smell the roses today and you just never know what you may find. I found a slug. But it wasn't a bad thing.

That slug represented something living and vibrant.

Now for the clothes…

Coffee with Isa -All sorts

It's that time again where we sit, have some coffee and you listen (or not listen) to my ramblings.

Today more on dodgy scammers, Sansar, new friends and kids and their thoughts on parents and social media. i.e. Second-life vlogging and blogging.

Who is Angie?

I have not a clue!

But I do know today is Sunday and I’m having a really lazy lazy day. 

So lazy, I had a shower and put pj’s back on!

Now if people turn up at least I smell nice, even though I look like something just crawled out of bed. 

Unlike my avatar here who looks immaculate and ready for a night of romance

Seduction or friends?

Do you ever think to yourself why why do I bother?

I have a friend that no matter what exciting news I share (exciting to me) it’s always met with disinterest. 

Now, I’m one of those people who truly believes that when you are engaged in conversation that you you should listen and engage. Not mind wander and be obvious that you are disinterested, simply because the conversation isn’t about you.

I have one of those friends.

No matter what interesting information I impart or news I have to tell, it’s always met with disinterest unless that person can turn the conversation back to themselves.

Is that friendship? I often wonder.

Is it jealousy because they aren’t doing or is it purely my news is of no significance?

If I have a conversation with anyone, it’s a two way conversation. I listen, I speak etc.

To me mutual interaction is really important and is what sustains good friendships. Interaction and what we do to show we care.

I guess I’m learning as I get older that there are many walks of people and some are more self interested than others.

I find that such a shame but equally frustrating as when I like someone, I want to share my thoughts etc. 

Anyhow I am digressing this morning from actually the main news.

 It’s Masons 2nd birthday today!!!!!

So I’m currently awaiting his little knock at my front door when I can shower him with hugs and presents. But I will share all that with you tomorrow.

Now this outfit……..

Indestructiball?

I’ve learnt that nothing is indestructible, not even my computer. Alas it is driving me crazy so I’m thinking this weekend I will have to take the bull by the horns and do things.

Now I have a SSD drive and at the moment it’s at 119G and full capacity. I’ve deleted every app known to man that I have never used but still it doesn’t shift. All my sl or videos photos etc live on my DDrive.

So anyone out there who runs a pc with a SSD drive any ideas on how I create the space for the windows update?

My D drive has 1T of space left free on it so I’ve got space but not it seems on the c drive where windows needs to install.

I’m driving myself nuts. Nuts I tell you.

Lovers

Everyone has a love story.

Be they sweet and innocent or wild and unforgettable. We all have one somewhere.

Mine? I have a few and will I share them with you ?  Maybe one day.

But today I’m sharing the “idyllic” version of the love story, the one we imagine or rather I imagine. The old romance of two people alone in a great world in their own just being together.

Ok frankly I am showing you the shorts outfit I am wearing, but I thought I would throw in a love feel for the heck of it. Frankly who wouldn’t love these?

Man found in Another world

Seductive?

Let me tell you there is nothing seductive about a hot night in this apartment wishing that the roof would fly off so I can have some relief.

Honestly a few warm days and this place turns right back into an oven again.

Come outside and it’s cooler, go figure.

It’s true, British homes are built to keep in the heat. Not to cool down. All that insulation stuff is the culprit.

I’m not complaining mind you. After all summer doesn’t happen often and I love it.  I am genuinely a beach loving summer person.

I just wish I was on a beach somewhere sipping a tall ice cold cocktail, being fed grapes by a handsome man and the water lapping at my feet.

Ok ok, Ill take a cold shower!
