Musing

Old Harriet went skiing.

On another note. It’s Saturday and I’m still sat here in my pjs. Don’t get me wrong I’ve done housework etc. I just actually need to shower and dress.

But but but, I don’t want to. I just want to curl up on my sofa and watch glorious Christmas films all day. Even though it’s still November here.

There are zillions of Black Friday sales on and I could go online and shop? But seriously do I really need to?

Right now we need to ask ourselves, each time we go to the purchase button, do I need that?

I’m very wary at the moment about my spend because of our current situations. Here in the U.K. people like me who work in the public sector are going to experience a pay freeze. What that really equates to is a pay cut.

People are losing jobs and I’m fully aware more are going to. It’s a pretty bleak look and I keep saying to friends when they go crazy spending, and do you REALLY need that!

My wage literally barely covers my living. It doesn’t allow me much for my own enjoyment and my one thing I use my spare on is my SL hobby and enjoyment. That won’t stop because I believe that I don’t live to work. But that’s it.

So two days ago. Something amazing happened to me. A lovely person purchased and sent me a brand new shiny computer so I can make better videos. I’m totally gobsmacked and in awe. I feel right now really appreciated and I cannot wait to start filming and taking photos with this. I owe him so much and if I could leap on him and hug him I would.

The video is not from the new machine. Though one released in 12 hours from now will be.

Enjoy Harriet.

On we go

On we go

Welcome to another week of life!!! Leap out of bed and celebrate that your alive, even if you feel stuck in lockdown.

I’ll be honest my leap is pretty low and my landing sounds like a herd of cattle rampaging past.

Anyone else find they cannot stop eating this year? Seriously it’s like I’m a bear who needs to eat so I can hibernate.

In saying that pretty soon I won’t be able to drag my extra lard around and I’ll end up turning into the flotation device when the next great flood comes. Or I’m chow for the rabid dogs when the next ice age rolls over

Most people I know are saying similar things and I’m glad I’m not that alone in this because food and me are not good friends. We are lovers!!!

Still in my pretend existence, I’m lithe and athletic and can dance like the professionals. I’ll have that!

Have a great day and it’s never as bad as you think. ❤️

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.

What a start

What a start

As I flick through my magazine I ponder today. Today is Monday and it’s not a great day. The week has started so bad and to be honest I really want to curl up in a corner and just pretend it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe rock back and forth and howl a bit too.

I made a mistake at work today which I could kick myself hard for. It was a simple mistake that any human under stress could make.

Then of course there was the message I sent to a colleague which was fun and tongue in cheek asking why she wasn’t at work and joking she was having a jolly good time. Turns out her dad died last week. Something a few people knew but wasn’t shared and so I stuck my size 6’s in and made things just that much more worse. Do I feel bad right now? Yes very much so.

Then it was the flu jab. I’m sure that will hurt tomorrow.

Then I learnt tonight an old work colleague took his life around 2 weeks ago. Far too young and a whole life laid ahead he should have lived still.

This is life. It’s not a fantasy. So let me find a nice tree to lay under while I contemplate tomorrow being any better.

Harriet Reports

Harriet Reports

Trying to record my voices in the lockdown is so hard when I’m not alone. Hence this post and video are done later than I anticipated.

I’m seriously going to have to consider a new regime to get things done. A rigid and less casual approach for the foreseeable future.

Ahh the joys of sharing space!!!

I’m guessing this is the reality for a lot of people right now as we find ourselves more boxed in these days.

Still, Harriet has some news to tell you. Harriet absolutely is returning back to location reporting because let’s face it. Virtual life is not in a lockdown!!

Today she is sponsored by Entice as part of their Saturday sale

I’m currently sat drinking tea and waiting for my dinner to cook. My avatar is in SL running rampant on her own and I’m legs up on coffee table relaxing.

If only I had the same setting as this picture. Sadly it’s not possible on my balcony unless I want to burn the building down..

Today at midnight the U.K. goes back into a tighter lockdown.

I’m feeling a little sad and wondering about 2020. This hasn’t been the best year and I wonder at what else it’s going to throw at us.

2020 certainly is a shite show. In fact it’s a car crash in the making and the parts haven’t stopped bouncing around yet.

Part of me believes we deserve this. We as humans are a selfish lot and it’s about time we look at ourselves and think about what really is important.

I think we have lost our way a little. Ok a lot!!! But we can find our way back if we all support each other and put our voices to the test.

Stop saying the right things. Start living the right things.

Then go sit by a fire at sunset and reflect at what we have learned.

Chilling on my own

Chilling on my own

Today I’m not really my jovial self. Trying to be but not succeeding very well. Something I’ll save for another time.

I decided not to do my real life video as to be fair I look miserable and no one wants to see that.

I could thrill you with a Tik Tok video. though I’m sure that would seriously annoy one or two of my readers. But no I insist.

There is a video to this blog, but sadly I’m having computer issues again and sound is now the next and it turned out awful sound wise.

Recording sounds funny and a bit tinny and the sound from my speakers is way off.

Rather than contemplate all of this along with my other angst I’m going to accept that pretty soon I’ll be using my dodgy old laptop and having to get used to that.

Things happen and for me it appears all at once.

Mind you, I could do silent videos? Maybe not. Night night and enjoy a Tik kitty Tok instead.

Second Life Halloween ride

Second Life Halloween ride

In reality I seriously don’t like Halloween. Hard to imagine given in the virtual I just love to make said videos.

The reason you ask? Because it scares me and I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to all things scary.

I’m that woman who won’t open her door in case the masked person is real. Seriously.

I usually open the door to children only and ignore the rest. This year? I don’t think many sane parents will be letting their little ones accept anything from strangers. Even then it will be anti bac spray and wipe moments.

The most favourite thing I look forward to each year is The Haunted House ride by Linden Lab in Second life and visiting Arranmore.

I never tire of these places and the ghoulish nature of it. Scares me every single time!! This is the first time I have captured in one take the Linden ride.. I’ve not been a character or even myself narrating for a change.

I did add one or two extra sounds just to scare you even more. Headphones on, lights off and watch.

Happy Halloween 🎃

I do love it when I get the chance to hang out with people that I don’t often get the chance to. Time differences and also the real fact that my SL time is spent very busy doing things for blogs or videos for myself or others.

To be honest that is how I like it. My virtual time is a great release to me of reality and it’s negatives and keeping mentally busy suits me well.
