Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone out there. Whether you celebrate or not, I wish you all s as wonderful few days.

I’m taking time to enjoy a hot chocolate in the real world as well as the virtual. Why not.

Lots of films and chilling time.

But I’m now taking a few days away from blogging and so to give you some viewing pleasure I made a few videos for the Christmas period just to bring a smile.

I released all but one of them last night and so here they are in no specific order.

Outfit details below.

We can’t predict

We can’t predict

I’m feeling a little sad today and not sure how long this feeling is going to be for.

A lot of things lately are very unpredicted and we take each day as it comes. Today in south east U.K. we started day 1 of a Tier 4 lockdown.

If you want to know what this means, feel free to go read Here

There will be no Christmas in each other’s homes and for me this hurts incredibly.

I’ve spent the past nearly 9 months following the guidelines and to the point I denied myself a lot even when the rules were somewhat lifted. Believing if we all did our bit then life can slowly return to near normal. The belief that Christmas Day I had so much to look forward to. Seeing my children and my grandson.

This is not going to happen. We cannot mix for the foreseeable next few weeks and I’m terribly sad inside about it.

Some have “support bubbles”. I do not.

Because I live in a house share situation. If one person is mixing outside the other cannot create their own support bubble.

I never had a choice in this because the person who rents the spare room met a boyfriend, does physical activities which include mixing and apparently their “mental health” needs to do this.

Well today my sympathies are completely gone. They’re gone for every single person who chose to ignore guidelines and live their best lives during a pandemic. They’re gone because of the selfish actions of others. Including my housemate.

My decision is postpone “Christmas” for when we can. We can still have it another time.

I’ll make the best of a few days break over the holidays and catch up with sleep, films and maybe spending time on myself a bit.

I’m inside the saddest I have ever felt. Doing the right thing didn’t work because if others don’t, then your actions are wasted.

Christmas is important to many people. Not for the religious observance etc.

It’s important as it’s a time families get to come together and just spend time when for many months they cannot. This year seems more so important.

Anyhow it is what is is, the best we can do is find a way to make the best of what we have at our fingertips.

My story in Second Life will be even more so poignant this year. I plan on the Christmas get together in 22nd December. But it may be this year I’ll be with others in our virtual world, spending time on Christmas Day.

Importing those old wind lights into the new EEP Firestorm

Im not one to tutor. Never have been mainly because I faff and take the long way around things, never retain the info or I just go in blindly and do things. Remember how to explain my process is often my downfall.

Dont expect a professional Tutorial here, but unlike my usual videos, short and sweet and job done.

So if you want to know how to get those old windlights from the pre EEP Firestorm back in, then this will help.

Countdown till Christmas

Countdown till Christmas

Happy Tuesday one and all from a rather exhausted woman in reality. I think my body and mind need the holidays to arrive pronto.

I’m so tired that once I let myself relax finally I know I’ll be asleep for days. The cat, have I mentioned the cat!! Bondi my ball of fluff, love of my life. His fault.

Every single night he is like a clock. Pounces into my chest to let me know he is awake and ready to play. Honestly he is trying to murder me I am sure!

The perfect crime, who would suspect the beautiful blue eyed handsome pussy cat?

I know what you did last night

I know what you did last night

Last night I had a truly lovely night with friends. My bottle of gin and laughter and just doing something I haven’t done in ages.

This year has been such a challenge and I’ve missed human contact and touch incredibly. Just laughing and enjoying time.

Of course it was very socially distanced before you ask as we sat in a hot tub with our drinks to hand.

Because it was in a virtual world we could do this.

Today I wake up late with a sleepy smile on my face.

Never underestimate the power of friends and making things happen in a virtual world.

Next the Christmas meal plan for all my friends before Christmas. I best start baking!!!

Then this dress!!!

Ready for the town

Ready for the town

The fact that it’s two weeks to Christmas hasn’t escaped me.

The fact that I have absolutely no plans at all, certainly hasn’t escaped me.

I’m actually in a quandary about this years festive season and that basically there’s no Christmas meal with my friends from work in the run up to Christmas or my friends outside of work.

There’s also the possibility that if we stay in Tier 3 will we be allowed to mix to any extent? Boris, leaves me wondering often. For me at the moment I have absolutely no social bubble. That has I’ll be honest been the case basically since lockdown started in April this year. Apart from one of two catch ups.

I haven’t seen my children since just before the U.K. 1 month lockdown started. Approx just over 6 weeks and I’ve seen a friend to say goodbye before she moved across the country two weeks ago. Oh hang on, my daughter for 1 hour as we had a socially distanced walk around the lakes one lunchtime.

I don’t have a social bubble because the rules are in a house share situation that there can only be one bubble for the shared housemates. As I’ve mentioned before the other person here has been a bubble already.

So to do the right thing means I don’t because at the end of the day, if anything did happen to me that’s one thing. The thought I could potentially inadvertently pass anything to my grandson who has a heart condition, would break my heart. Let alone my children.

It is a strong thing this parent instinct how you would literally sacrifice anything for the protection of your children. I never understood it before I became a mother.

The truth is I happily forfeit parties and indulging my own so that things can get better. However, in pixel planet (my fond name for Second Life) I can get dressed up, hop in a car and go out for the day.

I am just giving you a calendar update because im quite helpful like that. Also to let you know that this is todays advent calendar goodie from Entice. So pop on over as freebies are a dream arent they.

I do love a freebie and Christmas goodies are the best. Sadly the only place we get them is in our virtual lives because reality is not so kind.

If we are honest, reality puts the prices up then lowers them back down again and we are deluded into the false premise we nabbed ourselves a bargain.

Enjoy the virtual free gifts and make sure in reality you check their “discounts”.

Strumming my pain with his

Strumming my pain with his

Ok I have no idea on the title and why. But that song Killing me softly has been in my head all day. Again no idea why.

The fact that I don’t recall hearing it today is one fact, a pretty good fact. Also that I don’t own a radio either.

No idea how it popped into my head or why because it isn’t a favourite song by any means.

But, it does actually kind of reflect the photo because I have a guitar? Strumming? So there is that. It will do as my explanation anyhow.

I’d love to say that the reason for the image was inspired by my strumming of my guitar earlier and feeling the music flowing through my veins, caught in a creative moment.

But that wouldn’t be true. I just fancied the pose.

There I said it. I fancied the pose and why not. Yet the fact that this song is featuring in my head leaves me wondering if I should go find a man to strum my pain with his finger?

Oh lord I’ll stop right there.

Do you have heels?

My Saturdays never feel the same without a dance video. I’ve already previously shown you this dance but sometimes it’s nice to redo them in different scenes. Plus I love searching for the music.

Nothing else to say. Cmon it’s Saturday and I’m off to play.
