Just a fantasy

Just a fantasy

Well, day 1 of the diet plan and I will be honest, climbed the walls at work.

I’m fine at home and actually never think about eating. But sat at my desk at work, that’s another matter.

Suffice to say I’m a little grumpy and emotional at the moment. 

No not just because I couldn’t have cake, but because I’m never not disappointed by people.

I’ve met some right Twatwaffles in SL and the calibre certainly is never disappointing if you like a Twatwaffle. My reference to people who have narcissistic megalomania. A story for another day, but will be shared.

Personally I like a waffle with maple syrup and Ice cream.

If I think I’m going to fit in this outfit for the summer, no waffles!

But maybe some 1/2 sin cake. Recipe below the credits. Now for the video!

1/2 Sin cake for a diet on slimming world

1. Whisk 4 egg whites in a bowl until they reach soft peak stage

2. In another bowl, whisk together 4 egg yolks, 4tbspn sweetener, half tub a quark, 1 tsp baking powder (1/2 syn), 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Then whisk in half the egg whites.

3. Fold in the remaining egg whites with a metal spoon

4. Tip the mixture into a sandwich tin, lined with baking parchment (2 if you want to make a double cake with filling, or on a tray if you’re doing swiss roll style)

5. Bake in oven (180c) until well risen and brown (approx. 20mins). It will sink when you first take it out, dont worry.

6. To make topping/filling- mix other half of quark tub with 1 tbspn of sweetener, as well as vanilla/fromaige frais/orange zest if you’d like. 

7. Spread that or use as filling, as required and add fruits of your choice in filling/as topping.

Diet!!!

Diet!!!

That damn word. 

Finally, yet again I’ve decided I must diet!!! Summer is nearly here and I’ve been incredibly slack the past few months. 

Winter has a funny way of welcoming you into complacency. I enjoy that warm fuzzy feeling of warmth and food. It’s a lovely feeling. Till you realise maybe you had too many pies!

Everyone I know on SL is doing the same. Diet for summer! 

I think we should all get together and share tips for lean eating.

So here’s mine for the day.

If like me you have a sweet tooth you will know how hard it is to avoid satiating that in a diet, especially in the cold weather as fruit just doesn’t feel right on its own.

Eton mess 

In a bowl place 1 meringue nest broken Handful blueberries, sliced Strawberries and top with Natural low fat yoghurt.

 Then top with more blueberries with a drizzle of honey (yes honey) as you are allowed some sins. Throw sliced banana on top. Job done.

Enjoy! But don’t go crazy with the honey or meringues. It’s all about moderation.

The morning flasher

On the bus headed to work and have just seen a flasher.

I kid you not! He is standing on his front drive way flashing for the world to see.

I don’t want to see it, my right not to see it and yet bold as brass this man is standing on his drive putting his keys into his car door, flashing his light up sneakers!!!

This cannot be unseen.

What a day.

I have despite the statement I was going to chill, kick back and relax, been actually very busy all day. I have had a lot of RL and a few visitors and whilst making this video, left myself logged in dancing with my dancers and had dinner, cups of tea and gossip. Achieved far more than I had set out to do and well, now going to kick back and consider my next activity. I love MOVE! dances, there is no doubt about it and anyone who sees me about the grid will see me dancing at some streets near you. One of my favourite things to do in SL and will never ever get bored from doing.

Call me a multitasking woman. Just I got this!

My direction of travel 

My direction of travel 

Sunday morning and laze day! I don’t care who wants to visit, I have no plans to dress up or be doing anything other than the pure laze.

I am one of those people who really needs at least one day a week that has no structure other than the one which is to do absolutely nothing.

I call it my recharge day.

Lately for a number of months my recharge day regularly gets disturbed and I never quite get that time I need to catch up with myself. Today, so far so good.

So far the laze lay in, has been a success as I’m still in bed. No one woke me, the phone hasn’t rung and the doorbell hasn’t dinged. Even the cats have left me alone. I call this right now a miracle.

The only thing that I’m planning today is one of my friends to visit this afternoon and sharing of a cuppa and gossip catch up.

So fingers crossed this Sunday is as I unplanned it.

Isn’t this outfit pretty?

Don’t ask me what I’m doing with the posing animations. But it made me chuckle so I decided not to speak and just kept doing it.

Because real life happens

Because real life happens

I can’t sleep!!! 

So I’m laying in bed listening to music. Most don’t know I have a SoundCloud account and have messed with edm music a few years. Seriously not even my RL friends knows apart from a few.

I guess inside all of us is that other person wanting to keep out.

I love music and love visual things. Hence I faff around with videos etc.

Anyhow I’m going to share that side of my life more because heck why not.

I can’t sing, but I do a mean voice vocal.

A dream

A dream

Did I just wake up?

I had planned to laze in a slumber till some ridiculous late time this morning but the sound of the front door closing as my son went off to see his girlfriend woke me right out of that said slumber. I know this sentence is grammatically incorrect. However, I’m not here to teach sentence structure.

I’ll leave that to the teachers.

I’m absolutely glad it’s the weekend as this past week in RL at work has been incredibly stressful.

Some days I sit back and consider the fact that rather than work to live, on the whole the majority of us live to work.

That’s crazy!

Life is way to short. So at the very least I’m going away a few times this year. No not to a SL destination near you. 

Scotland and France. Somewhere in that equation I want to throw in another one. Simple cheap get aways staying with friends, but spending more of my time in life than working.

Now to the outfit…..

Tender fantasy

Tender fantasy

I never get tired of a pose. 

I like take my photos in RL and am always snapping away. I’ve managed to get a collection in Getty images and would you believe my photo of my half eaten banana placed on my desk at work has sold over 11 times now!

I’ve not yet seen where it’s been used but I’m thinking some food publications have made said banana famous. 

Seriously I am not the greatest photographer either by any means. Definitely not in SL. But I love taking a photo. 

I snap away all the time and may take dozens before at least one of them I think looks ok ish.

I’ve tried photoshop but by geez I haven’t the patience to work that bad boy out.

So my photos will have all their SL flaws still in them as no fancy background insertions. Though I do have use of a filter so will at times play with that.

These photos used neither. All simply SL windlights. Ask me how I did it? I’ve forgotten already.

It doesn’t matter how great we are with a picture or how adept we are at using a software to enhance said picture.

All that matters is that we enjoy it and it reflects the moment we were in. So to all those people just like me who love taking photos, just go for it. Little memories are wonderful.

Dreamers

Dreamers

Yes I’m on the bus as I write this. Driver driving like he has a Formula 1 race to finish. 

I do believe my stomach just somersaulted above my head and back down to the ground as he took that last corner without slowing down.

Funnily there was a time I used to believe that getting someone else to drive BIG cars meant you were safe on the roads.

I’ve re visited this thought and come to the conclusion that I thought wrong.

My dream right now as I try distract myself from Marathon mans driving skills is to be draped over a sofa just like this waiting for my man to get home.

The reality of it is when I get home at night the only thing draped over my sofa is the cats and the only man coming home is my son who still expects his mum to have dinner ready. 

I’m a pretty ok mum as I do always have the dinner ready. He works in London and doesn’t get home till 7pm at night in comparison to my 5pm. So for now I cook.

Now back to this bus driver. Slow  down!!!!
