I visited the new Le Monde Perdu part of the Luanes World.
No matter how many years go by, Luane always manages to provide a place full of beauty and nature. Her new Le Monde Perdu is such a place and whilst there taking my photo for this outfit. Out came the virtual video and suddenly I was filming.
Yesterday I had a wee reaction to my second Covid jab. Wee as in tiny, not as in wet myself!
Though I’m sure as I age that will be a fun experience.
I had a headache and total body ache. Today it all seems ok but man does my arm hurt. I’m feeling cautious at the moment and fingers crossed this is it this time and I’m not going to be all over the place again.
I won’t lie, the first jab scared the heck out of me due to the reaction I had. It did take a lot of self discussion for me to go and have the second one.
The bit I really don’t understand is that I was told I will in ten days from the day of that jab, be 85% protected. The nurse was pretty honest with me. Ten days then it’s recommended I still steer clear of things as people like me aren’t necessarily safe.
So, why did I have it???? As I start today I’m asking this question. Forgive me if I thought it meant I could be “normal” again. Though to be honest, I no longer know what normal is anymore.
But, I did the right thing I say to myself. My body doesn’t agree right now, but my brain thinks it has to be the right thing.
By the way where this picture is taken, will shortly be subject of a video this weekend. All will be revealed.
I have a 3 day weekend as I’m off today. Feet up and just chilling.
Some days I love to do that on my own and enjoy my own space. The weather is rubbish and feeling cosy inside is such a pleasure in life.
Sometimes we really forget that these small pleasures mean so much to our mindset. We tend to be so busy with life and what’s going on around us that we neglect those simple things that give us peace.
I’ve had a relax from filming and blogging the past few days as I’ve had my land to deal with which has caused all sorts of headaches as I’m so useless.
But last night I actually did something that I’m quite proud of and made my own cliff and placed a house on top. When in doubt of terraform, sink it!!!
That’s just the start. But I will be getting someone to help with the land. I’m doing a check out of prices etc. Bit like applying for a mortgage and getting the best quality quote.
For many many years I’ve lived privately in Second Life . For quite a while I’ve lived with Yorkie sharing the same space and it’s been great as he would change the homestead regularly and I always loved everything he did. I’d just place my house and decorate.
Yorkie left second life behind this week and it’s a void in my virtual life that I shall not be able to replace. We were friends in both worlds and friends who understood each other and respected each other’s privacy.
He has given up on this world and at this time his gaming YouTube to pursue other things. I’m sure what he is doing will make him ultimately happy and I shall miss his sweet soul.
I hope that when time comes and he is ready we can one day meet up in the real world and be better friends. Until then I shall watch him grow and blossom.
None of this has anything to do with this outfit I know. But hey I can ramble.

This isn’t my house. I just fancied the backdrop for a photo!!! Shhhh don’t tell!!!
Monday today and fresh week, fresh attitude and fresh air. I’m not sure why I’m feeling chipper but I am. Nothing has happened to make me feel that way, I just do.
Though it could be said, I’m just rotating emotion and decided to put the other head forward. Who knows.
That aside, I’m currently really enjoying blogging lately. More so than I previously did. Which has surprised me. Seriously after 5 years I would have thought I was going to give up, but this far I haven’t.
Recently I had contemplated the importance of what I do in life and what matters to me etc. A friend spoke with me about my consistency and my “work ethic” in both lives.
I have a pretty strong work ethic both realistically and also via my virtual exploits. Neither give me great financial outcomes despite the efforts I put into both. That’s a huge fallacy that people assume as a blogger and vlogger it’s a given. It’s not.
It’s often asked of me , Liz why do you bother as very little read my blog or watch my YouTube videos.
The answer is quite simple, because I enjoy it.
The value in my activities are usually about how I feel about the things I do and how they make me feel. Pretty much as simple as that really.
No I don’t make money in my blog and my income from YouTube is negligible. Seriously we are talking literally £70 every 3-4 months. That basically covers a takeaway once a month!! For me though I reinvest into my blog and my video making. The remainder comes from my own monies.
I think people often assume that it’s a money making exercise. Nope. Love of feeling creative and disappearing now and then is the pleasure I get.
Do you ever choose to just stay in your undies all weekend and forget about the world? Just like my current look?
Today I’m feeling it so much. It’s pouring rain here and I have absolutely no reason to go outside other than take rubbish to the communal bin. Which frankly throw on a coat. No one will know will they!!
Though I do this I always like to shower, do my hair and feel presentable in case anyone does come to the door. Like my postman!
Now let me tell you about my postman.
He is 6ft 2 of loveliness. Cheeky smile and reddish mop of hair. Friendly, ultra fit and makes my nether regions do a “hey how you doing” mumble.
Every day I see him he tends to ring the doorbell to deliver my post even when he doesn’t need to. Usually post men pop through the letter box. Not with me he doesn’t. Every day we have a banter about how we must stop meeting like this.
Today he rings the doorbell, I’m not showered with hair done etc. I’m hagrid jumped out of bed looking a right mess greeting him at the door.
But he still stops, says we must stop meeting like this and then disappears.
I’ve decided next time I see him. I shall stun him.
I’ll get dressed!!!!!

I need a good day out in the Tropics somewhere on this planet. Well to be honest a day wouldn’t quite cut it, but maybe 6 months?
Weirdly I would find nothing more wonderful that just a handful of people on a tropical island, just swimming and playing in the sand all day. Barbecues by sunset and long walks within the trees that stretch across the land. Talking, laughing and just being happy with each other. Both family and close friends.
Is it odd I think that I don’t want a good night out with a bunch of people or some concert etc that people are currently looking forward to ? In the last year I have realised that to me its simple things in life are the ones that matter most.
My friend rang me today and asked if I wanted to go out shopping . I declined. To be honest what did I need to shop for? In all seriousness I have learnt that I don’t need a lot of the things I used to buy and I purchased then just out of habit.
Maybe my sense of money is that it can be here today and gone tomorrow, so why am I buying “things” I don’t need or actually really even want.
Im happy with the odd online clothes purchase as I then leave it in a basket, think about it long and hard before I even press the buy button. It allows me to reconsider do I really need that or want it. Usually 8 times out of 10 I remove items from the shopping cart because I realise that I didn’t really want them. I think we are all guilty of shopping without any rationale and just buying things for the heck of it at times.
Today I purchased something I actually did think about and to me is worth it. A book. No not a kindle one, but an actual hard copy real paper one. Old fashioned I know. But I do love a good flip of a page and bending pages down when I come across sections I love.
Funnily it was via a conversation with Drax that I purchased it after he started telling me some of the aspects of the book. Seriously you will have to watch Second Life book club this week as this author is going to be interesting.
I doubt I will have read the entire book by then, but I will be making a good start later today when I relax on my sofa.
I personally have had a long weekend as I had this week off work. I didn’t get up to much apart from redoing the living room with my daughter and breaking the restrictions to say goodbye to my brother and his family. They are leaving the U.K. tomorrow and returning to Australia.
I feel sad they are going but also happy for them as I know my brother doesn’t want to be here. Hasn’t for a long time.
Yesterday I went on a Thelma and Louise type road trip to the seaside. Only there was no alcohol nor crazy men.
It wasn’t a nice beach but it was a day out and I enjoyed it in good company.
It’s been over a year since I left my local area and yesterday I decided, hell live a little.
That’s my freedom for now and I return back to my fortress. Though I cannot wait for warmer weather as just like my avatar I shall be embracing the sun and it’s warmth.
I do love a good chat. Today despite feeling pretty drained all day. After a half hour catnap after work I felt a little more alive.
So spoke my vlog. To be fair it took me a couple of goes as the first one I prattled on far too long. I made an executive decision to bin that one as frankly it was maybe just a little too real for anyone.
I often try and free mind myself that my channel is a virtual related one. However it’s difficult for me as I’m always being me.
Anyhow if you do choose to listen, I’d suggest a good cuppa as well.
