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

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!

Nipple covers

 

Ok so in this blog pic I’ve hid the nips on the boobies. The Flickr version however is a different kettle of fish.

I do often wonder why  it’s considered offensive for we ladies to show our baps in photos when done tastefully and not in a sexually gratifying manner? I mean the men show their baps often when they go shirtless? In fact with their nipples erect at that! 

The funny thing is that in real life on a lot of beaches it’s perfectly fine to frolic around topless with it all hanging out, nipples at attention and no one really gives a hoot.

So this leaves me confused at the whole nipple thing. Why is a nipple considered adult and has to be moderated in a photographic image?

Why are women’s nipples sexual and men’s considered not?

Suffice to say my video you don’t see the nipple just in case the wider public consider it some form of pornography. 

It is you tube after all. But pole dancing apparently is fine . So I dance my pole.

Never Walk Alone

But dancing alone is definitely allowed. 

Whilst filming this at Salt Water I could sense onlookers wondering what the heck I was in fact doing. Prancing around like my hippy self swaying to my own music.

 I recall at the time of filming there was some chicken kicking track playing on the sim  that certainly didn’t go with this dance and give it justice.

This is Vera 2 . I loved Vera 1 and this follows on quite smoothly. I’ve actually already made 3 videos for it but thought I would save the other two for a different day. I know one armed bandit and I can still  enjoy a good video time.

The actual outfit I’m wearing has a hud, but I didn’t show that this time so I would suggest a visit to check it out at the Designer Showcase. Failing that it will appear in another blog at any rate.

I’m off to sleep now and bid you all  a farewell for the night. Sweet dreams world. ❤️

Summer daze

Today I won’t ramble about the things I can’t do as it then I’ll be guilty of whining or moaning or any other term we use when a record is stuck on one subject.

Suffice to say my right hand/arm is currently taking quite a hammering this past week making up for the useless left.

So instead I’m going to dwell on the good things.

The genuine SL and RL people who have either logged in to check on me or as one does in the real world phoned or visited.

This experience has taught me how I place at times value in the wrong people and overlook those that I shouldn’t.

After all it’s the people that arrive in your hours of need that are the genuine people.

I have so many friends on my RL and SL friends lists and yet in one hand the true value of those friendships become abundantly clear.

I think the superficiality of social media etc is so that people only step in and out at their leisure or whim.  But the real human side is the side we are all guilty of neglecting.

Which leads me to the fact that there are so many elderly or disabled people out there in worse circumstances than me and are completely alone.

I’m currently having a taste of what it’s like to need people.

I can’t even imagine how they must feel when they have no one they can turn to or rely on to do the simple things we all take for granted. Washing ourselves, going to the toilet, brushing your own hair, etc.

I think despite my own internal misery I’ve been feeling and still am to a degree, I realise how lucky I am really.

I know once my shoulder has healed, I’ll be back at work as normal, fetching cups of tea for visiting friends, picking up my grandson.

But, there are some that this is a permanent way of life.

My heart actually breaks knowing that.

You don’t understand someone’s plight till you have walked a few steps in their shoes. I’ve done a few shadow steps and frankly I’m totally grateful that this is a passing period. I hope it is at any rate.

I will be in August wearing  my summer outfit, heading to Toulouse on my summer week away in RL. Well I hope anyhow.

I do like that you can in SL get suitcases to match your clothes. Hmmmmm I wonder……..
