Sometimes the pace of life seems to run at a speed faster than we can keep up.
But if we plan then we can beat the clock and catch up.
I’m not catching up. So I’ve taken myself to bed in the hope of getting some sleep.
Deep down I know that will be short lived when the housemate comes home. She has no filter of any sort and a lack of respect for my personal space.
I could sit and tell you how my housing situation is troubling me but I shall spare you that woe.
Today feels like there is so much on top of me that even creating a video I decided not to do.
My grandson Mason was sent home from school today as a child in the class and his family contracted and tested positive for COVID. So all children from that class have to now self isolate. They are only 5!
I’m still trying to get my head around what is going on around me in the world but also how incredibly selfish people are behaving.
Why send your child to school knowing he is not well? Why be so selfish and do that?
Im like a moving butterfly, flying from leaf to leaf looking for my forever home.
Yep moved again!!
The beautiful place Rosie and I had is no more, since a nightclub opened on the other half of the region and basically shoved out scripted this and that and our lag went from perfect to lets walk in treacle. Nature of the beast when you share a sim or a region. You have no control of the out look beyond your own 4 lines.
Rosie had done a great job of the vram police and making sure that everything on the land meant there was no drain on the computer when we walked around etc.
In one week that changed and frankly that was it. Move.
So here I am again showing you a new place but also showing you the old place as a visit down memory lane as I hadnt really got around to the full show off. Clearly I am rambling again which I tend to do .
Funny thing SL is a great place for not feeling too sad when things like this happen as you just each time create your own fantasy and its like going home.
That look of shock on my face is the indication of my real persona.
I just woke up not so long ago to a beautiful day here in the U.K.
It’s like spring has spring all over again and promises to be a day of sunshine and barbecues. I may need to go buy lots of flowers to spread around the apartment to add to that spring vibe we have.
You may notice I look somewhat different. That is because I wanted to blog the Anya avatar by Kalhene.
I have not changed her aside from popping on lippy and eyeshadow. I’m still yet to decide on the shape I’m playing around with for her as I’m trying to reproduce what is the ISA face shape. I may not achieve it but it’s interesting attempting.
I love the curviness of this avatar and frankly it’s just so simple to use . For those new to the whole mesh experience, I’d highly recommend her because there is no complicated buttons etc, hiding this and that. It’s out the box. Add and dress. Plus price!!!!
Now I have found maitreya clothing for me is the best fit. As you can see the fit is great with this outfit at the EQUAL10.

Have you ever felt so exhausted that you really feel you could sleep forever?
That’s me right now.
I go to bed each night, sleep, wake up, work and repeat. Same thing I’ve done for many years.
Just lately though it feels like my sleep never existed and those hours in bed never happened.
Today I woke up as normal for work, had breakfast, drank my tea and started work. The difference was that exhaustion was in a whole new level and I knew I couldn’t sit there and work. It was like the brain stopped functioning and I needed to sleep.
So, for the first time in my life, I took a day off to sleep. Purely and totally just to go back to bed and rest.
I woke up again 15 minutes ago and I can honestly say that was the best thing for me.
I still feel exhausted but I feel better for it. Now what to do with the rest of my day!
I’m celebrating the end of the week now. By the time it does come I’ll be so tired that I need a nap!
Honestly the past two weeks have been so full on that I look forward to the weekends just to sleep. Yes sleep!
So when Hump day comes along, Im feeling that the ride to Friday is all the way downhill to my comfy place. aka the bed.
This week is a hectic week as Rosie and I have ended the home we created. Sadly a club has moved in next door and no matter the amount of lowering VRAM that was done on our side trying to make it less laggy, when someone else comes in, its like you are fighting back in the treacle.
So the result is, Rosie got her own homestead and I have moved to another homestead with a friend.
Ive made a little home and just finishing it off and dragged one of my tenants with who has his own little island now and made sure he has all the privacy in the world.
So that may be my first video this weekend just to show you the move and what I left.
Rosie has amazing landscaping skills she needs to utilise.
Id always say if you have some spot that needs some assistance to landscape, ask Rosie!
I’m into week 3.5 or is it 4 of my social experiment about face filters and how they really are cunning little things.
I say little because they come via a phone app or a camera nowadays.
The drastic differences to your appearance can be pretty shocking but even more so the concern as to how vulnerable as a human you can feel if you were to compare yourself to some of the imagery you see via such social apps as Instagram and YouTube.
I’ve certainly become quite observant now of anyone who appears on my social media that looks good. When I say good I mean with pore-less skin and looking more youthful than logic says they would.
Imagery that is not true to aspire to.
However here in Second Life, we can be whoever we want to be. Because we all understand that we are real people on the other side.
As a woman who has always questioned why in life. I am right now asking why why why do we every single month have to go through that feeling of mood swings, bloating, stomach pain and let the list go on. Why?
We simply have no choice, well some of us. Others are lucky to not have that experience each month and in my next life I want to sample being one of them.
I’m 54 years old and I’m sure menopause is in transition right now. But, whilst that is happening I still get all the feelings of being 13 again when I used to disappear to the medical room at school and lay down.
I guess that’s life and it’s the way it is. But why????
Now on that note enjoy your Saturday and don’t eat all the donuts.
