Sunday bliss

Sunday bliss

Happy Sunday and it’s not snowing here in reality. It’s just rain, rain and more rain.

I was up last night till stupid o’clock and I really don’t know why. Ok I do, I’m trying to change the region I live on to a snow one.

Every year I change my little homes and use all the prims in the world to make my home for the winter. This year I have region control and I really seriously have not a clue what I’m doing.

I stupidly assumed you pop the textures in and hey presto you have a snow region and an ice lake!!! Clearly not. I have icy sea and you can’t skate on it. You sink.

If anyone has any idea how the sea changes to a lake? Asking for a friend. 😳

In the meantime I released my visit to snow drops which is truly beautiful.

The snowboarding is so much fun and you really need to try it sometime.

Mmmm K my KPop

I actually kinda feel these dances and I’d say because they’re so positively cute and fun.

Right now I really embrace the distraction of fun and I’m not averse to featuring dances over and over again when I feel them.

Today the world feels a little different with the last 24 hours and either way whatever you believe or wanted it’s really dumb to trash others views. ie the truly toxic insults I’ve been seeing hurled around Facebook in both my rl and my virtual realms.

Let’s face it that dude is a meme that keeps on giving but that’s him. He has always been that meme.

Hating on each other is pretty toxic and petty and really aren’t we all allowed in our democratic world to have freedom of thought and expression? That doesn’t mean to freely bestow hatred because of peoples choices or political leanings. Smile then move on.

Winners or losers. It’s about being good humans and accepting we don’t all agree in this world.

Wouldn’t it be a really dull place if we did? Enjoy the memes but forgive the rights to have choice.

Win or lose well and carry on. Our virtual worlds are a place to drop this and forgive and just crack on with friendship.

Now enjoy this video because I certainly felt it.

Feel good about yourself

Feel good about yourself

The secret to feeling good is how you greet yourself in the morning. Your attitude to yourself and how you treat you.

I have been moving into a slump the past few months. (Im not out if it by any means) but I’m working on it.

There are many reasons for my slump. The main being what’s happening in the world and my fear of the things we appear to be losing as a result. Worry about our futures but also mine personally.

I kind of started to slowly sink into it, like I’m sure many of you out there may be doing. Being stuck at home and the constant monotony of our current existence. The losing the desire to dress up or even care about things that we place as important on a daily basis.

However I have come to realise when you give into that, you start to lose that feeling of how you do matter and you are important. Your sense of self worth.

Where is she going with this long winded set of sentences I hear you chiming.

I realise that actually what we should be doing is indeed doing the things that can make us feel good even though our movements are limited.

Starting off with that look in the mirror first thing in the morning. You know the one. Where you see yourself and say oh Jesus in your heads.

Instead you need to look at yourself and really see beyond that at who you are and how much you matter. Then treat yourself in that way. Treat you like every day is a good day and you are greeting the world.

Put your best smile forward, brush those teeth and dress as you would have been prior to all this nonsense.

So every day I am practising this, getting back into habit and it does make a difference.

Don’t get me wrong it’s not perfect by any means, but it’s certainly way better than allowing myself to slip into a depression.

Try it.

Meet Dolores

Meet Dolores

It’s Wednesday and for me it’s a struggle of week.

To be honest it usually is of late for one reason or another and that’s just how it is in the current climate. Today after a rather eventual night I decided I really need a break. A complete detach where I don’t get up and start work.

I decided to treat myself to a day off on Friday and see if I can realign my Chakras or at the very least, relax and see a friend or two.

Though I’ve not made arrangements either as I want to just let my day flow.

Last night at 2 am was really my last straw. My bed broke!

Yep you read that correctly the base slats which were a previous repair job suddenly caved in and my mattress took me to a place I really didn’t fancy being in. The hollow of the netherworlds under my bed. God knows what ner dwellers live there but I came back up again.

To be honest it’s really the last thing I needed right now given cash is a little tight these days and I’m trying to get used to downsizing life in preparation for let’s face it pending recession.

So, my decision is….

I’m going to ditch the bed and put the mattress on the floor and turn all Japanese . Why not!

The only thing my daughter did point out was would I be able to get up . Cheek of it!!! So today I’m Dolores my Kalhene avatar. (That’s my nickname for her).

As the mist comes in

As the mist comes in

I was going to release another blog today but I looked out my living room window to see the mist hovering over my lake and thought today was a perfect day to fit this in.

It took all my efforts not to pop myself in the photo, but I was good I refrained!

That aside in the credits I still decided to pop down what I was wearing. Not much. After all. You should know I was in reality in my pyjamas and in my SL running around too less.

The truth is, unless I’m actually blogging or planning to meet up with anyone, I’m often found hair down, no make up and just my undies on. After all, when you’re home, why not!

I rather like this shelter with my tropical setting. A place to hide when the rain starts falling. Apparently it may. But not in SL unless I command it. Sadly reality I have no power to control the weather.

I would command snow!

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

McDonalds please

McDonalds please

Do you ever have days where you crave a McDonalds?

That’s been me today, all day.

One of those things I shouldn’t eat because of all the dietary reasons not to. Yet right now all I can think of is how a Caramel Sundae would rock my world after a Big Mac and fries!!

I’m having a weird week of feeling both run down and unwell and when I get like that, food is my carrot on a stick.

Which. Is rather ironic to say because who wants a carrot right now? Not me!

On another note I am now preparing for my new social media direction with Boucleme the Curly girl method.

My email has been set up yesterday by them and they are setting me up in their site as well as today I received an amazing package from them.

I’ll pop a photo under the credits. I’m pretty excited and really nervous about the whole thing. After all at the age of 54 I actually never expected such an opportunity to come my way.

I officially start my contract on the 26th October and I’ll have a code etc to share with people if they are into their curls. Clearly I’ll pop it in my site so anyone can feel free to look at once I have it.

I have set up a YouTube channel and my first video has gone out. I haven’t really shared it because I’m still trying to get used to this whole thing. Its below and so feel free to look if you so choose. The real me rather than the virtual production.

I’ll take the plunge and share in my RL Facebook and se what those pesky RL friends think.

They can be harsh too. So I’ll bite my tongue and cross my fingers.

The dark matter

The dark matter

Strange things happen at night when you are asleep during the Hallowed month.

All those who are laid to rest come up to celebrate and dance upon their graves. In readiness for the one day when the moon opens up and lets all of them free for the night to wander the streets of Hallowed lands. Dancing their way into Halloween.

She rises and seizes the moment…….

A little opening up

A little opening up

This morning is a slow start. It’s Sunday and it’s allowed to be. Why do I feel guilty when I choose to have a lazy one?

My housemate is out jogging her usual 10k run in her very obsessive way and I note because of that I feel a sense of guilt at my own Sunday laziness.

There are a few things I’m noticing about her that do concern me. One being the extreme fitness obsession. I don’t mean that lightly either, the girl is obsessed.

So obsessed that every single day is spent climbing, running, doing jujitsu, biking and yoga. Anyone who doesn’t do the same she has a negative view on. In fact anyone who has a extra pound on their skeleton is fat according to her observation.

I’m also noticing other traits that concern me. The level of self love being based solely on how she looks and equating that to her attitude about others. Which has a direct impact on me. It’s impacting me and how I feel about myself. Especially as I’m in a time of life that many women go through of body change etc.

This is my home and yet I’m feeling uncomfortable within it. Because the dynamic of this person and her views are very contrary to mine.

She refers to disabled people as “retarded”, gay and trans people as “needing counselling”.

I have tried for months to be like the mother figure and impart my ways of teaching her a different set of views but let’s face it. It’s not going to happen, the girl is lacking in many areas.

Oh and if you are overweight, and I mean even slightly you are plainly and simply a fat person who has no control.

Oh and if I laugh out loud reading something I hear “Calm down”. What is that about?

This girl is Slovakian. Is that a cultural set of attitudes or one related to a person? Any suggestions on this would be appreciated.

I’m considering the ending of the living arrangement in the new year. After all it is my home and if I’m feeling that I don’t like the aura of a person then frankly I’d rather struggle with my bills than feel this.

I feel like the donut

I feel like the donut

I feel right now like I ate all the donuts.

I haven’t, I just feel like it.

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.

They’re mine!

Balancing when it could break

Balancing when it could break

Seems my wee virtual world may be getting a shake to it.

My computer is having issues and my hard drive keeps disappearing . Not to be found in the normal way either.

So it’s currently showing, but softwares stored there have been corrupted and I’ve had to uninstall and Re download.

On top of that, the computer now regularly gets the blue screen of ooops we had to shut down and restart.

I’ve got a 1TSSD drive arriving tomorrow to assist with the issue but part of me is feeling the days are numbered.

I do have a gaming laptop but it runs like me so thats no positive!

In the meanwhile I’m just biding time and making the best of the ticking clock. Getting used to being in the middle of something then getting kicked.

What will I do? Cry maybe or , yeah no I’ll cry.

Thing is my blog and my filming etc are what keeps me sane in a rather insane world. They’re my peace and stress relief and a way of expressing myself.

Without that. Then there’s me. I’ve always said if Second Life went down tomorrow I’d start being me and real. But my god can you imagine it!!

The real Thelma, Isa, Harriet, Aunty VaGina and Beverley!

So let’s hope you won’t be forced to meet the real characters. On a serious note, if I had to use my laptop it just means meh graphics and tasks would be a lot slower to complete. We shall see.

I wonder if a dance video …..
