Two for one

Some days it’s so much easier to rely on yourself.

Do you find that?

I’m a very independent type of person in many ways and I do struggle asking for help or even waiting to receive it.

I’m an impatient waiter. Terrible trait, but at least I can acknowledge it.

So the two sides of me often solve my problems much easier.

An example is this photo. When I needed a second person, I asked myself.

The two of me. Often helping each other out in various ways.

Many people try and friend the other me, but that friendship is off limits.

You see often I need to have my downtime and the only way I seem to get it these days is to be an alternate me.

Only a handful of close friends have that access and despite people asking me, I have to say no.

It’s like going home and closing the front door after a hectic mad day. Relief and quiet.

I like to catch up on my own exploring and adventures too. Time to find places I want to blog in and see what’s out there.

There is a lot out there.

Autumn is slowly setting in. The leaves are turning yellows and falling. The nights are getting longer and the sun is going down earlier.

Time to break out the woolies and tartan.

ROUTE 66

Friday. Need I say it!

I’m more than thrilled to know there will be 48 hours of frivolity to come.

I haven’t much to say today, mainly because I’m lacking time and enroute to an investigation hearing I’m representing in RL for someone.

The video will tell you more. Loving this destination too!

Dream with me

I believe I’m still asleep right now.

This is all just a dream this getting up and going to work malarkey.

I believe in a campaign for a four day working week and a 3 day weekend. Or maybe just the other way around?

Who decided on a 5 day week and got that wish. I want to meet this bright spark and have a conversation.

I want them to run me through this decision and how they reached it.

What did they consider in this thought process which lead to the majority of the work force wishing Friday would come.

It’s only Thursday and I’m watching the clock tick till Friday 4pm.

I will be out those doors like a stealth ninja, faster than you can say toodles.

Hitching

What happened to the days when people could go hitch hike travelling and feel safe living their adventures?

The image above of me hitching a ride on the interstate is these days one I can’t condone anymore sadly.

Yet when I was younger we didn’t have to think too many times or as much about our safety.

Yes there were still reasons to be cautious, but today, right this minute even catching a busy bus is not safe.

When did our world get like this?

Each day I reflect a little on life and what it means and holds and each day parts of me wants to turn the clock back further and further.

Oh don’t get me wrong I totally appreciate some of the wonders we have in our lives. But these wonders have been at the expense of some of those basic things we were able to take for granted.

Safety, positivity, health, family, innocence, life in fact.

Along the way our world is ever changing and we need to hold on to those things as much as we can.

So this outfit and street reminded me of a time when I too hitched a ride with excitement at the adventure.

Today, I step on a bus reluctantly.

Still an hour in SL is like a day in a life of.

You can hitch a ride, balance on a bridge, swim a mile, dance under the stars, kiss a frog, link arms and just have fun.

The little dress

I’m feeling a little perkier this evening so figured I would finish off this blog post and send it off to wide world.

My favourite test of an outfit is that I can dance in it for my videos and not lose body parts through the fabric. This one completed that test perfectly for me.

What a day. As I mentioned earlier, I was on a fasting thingy for blood testing today. In the end it went far better than I thought and I saved grace by not throwing up on the nurse. (I am not great with blood tests).

I still felt nauseous but I’m pleased I was able to walk out without much embarrassment.

So I’m home and as I said feeling perky and decided to do two blogs today, because frankly there are not enough days in the week for all the things I  have planned. Suffice to say this weekend I am working on something which has  taken many costume changes and me fighting lag at odd times. So hopefully I can put it together and let you see.

Now for the video…

I have the look

I’ve had the look for the past few weeks .

Today I haven’t much to say. Well I do. But will save it for later because in RL I’m feeling a little sick right now as have tests later this morning and I am not allowed to eat or have my much needed morning cup of tea.

Make up in SL is like make up in RL. Weirdly you could be having the worst day and feeling meh. Pop on some lippy and you suddenly feel way better.

I’ve never understood why but during my life the simple fact when I’m feeling rubbish about myself the brushing of hair and popping on the lippy suddenly makes me feel 100% better.

So today I’m just going to show you ARTE’s contribution in the September PowderPack. The dress I’m wearing is from ::Oops::.

Coffee in Baskinta

Usually on my bus trip to work I’m chilled and earphones in ears listening to some music.

Today not quite so. Being far from chilled is how anyone who knows me may see me.

It started with a wonderful nights sleep to waking up to remember that I had fasting bloods and another ECG booked this morning. So no breakfast.

But half hour before I’m due to leave I get a phone call to say they have to cancel those tests and book them in for tomorrow due to the nurse who does the ECG going into minor surgery this morning.

So I’m rebooked for 11.20am tomorrow.

Again having to fast all night and wait till around lunch tomorrow to let anything pass my lips.

Unfortunately I’m a nauseous faster and as I sit here right now on the bus I frankly want to heave.

On top of that, I left my earphones at home!

That aside…….

Today’s coffee is slightly different in that although I’m still yakking away about anything and nothing. I’m also showing you this sim.

Feel free to turn the sound down if you wish, just admire this LEA 11 sim.
