Shhhhhhh

Shhhhh don’t tell anyone but I’ve taken the day off from work in RL.

Have you ever just wanted some time to chill and just be alone?

That’s me at the moment.

I’m often pulled from pillar to post and lately seems even more so, that it’s affecting the things I enjoy doing.

So I decided to take a day off and not tell anyone. Only you, shhhhhhhhh.

Even my SL is being bombarded, that I may need to go into virtual hiding so I can just relax on a beach alone with my thoughts .

Do you ever find you have days like this?

Todays Lesson

I feel like the teacher and not the student here.

Something about feeling like I’m a teenager again is very appealing.

Sadly the fact is I’m far removed from being a teenager as could possibly be.

Today I’m on the bus reflecting a little. Actually not reflecting, panicking.

My son and 5 of his mates are off on a mountain climb expedition.

To climb the 3 tallest mountains in the UK.

The first will be Scotlands Ben Nevis.

Now of course I’m proud etc, but worried too.

You see my son and his mates haven’t even climbed an ant hill in their lives and their idea of training for this was a group jog twice a week for the last month. Yep that’s it!

There are organised groups for this but they are doing this alone.

The drive there will take approximately 11 hours and so they will reach Ben Nevis in Scotland by sundown tonight. They intend to climb in the dark. Yes you read that correctly.

Am I a worried mother, you’re damn right I am.

So I doubt over the next 4 days I’ll be quite at peace until he walks back through the front door intact.

Seriously this having children malarkey, you never ever stop worrying.

Mind you, I have 4 days of naked running around and doing as I please without worrying about mother modesty!!!

I may as well enjoy it.

Now for the video lesson…..

Yesterday I arrived home from work basically in tears.

Office bullies are my greatest despise.

They come in all shapes and guises and you least expect it when it happens to you.

I didn’t expect to overhear the discussions whispered at high volume or notice the interrogation of my work by someone who is famously and I mean famously incompetent. But I did.

It hurt.

You see two of the people involved both are highly unprofessional women who have major flaws in the workplace.

One for being basically paid a high wage and not doing her job properly for the last 5 years and the other for her poor behaviour in the office regarding her colleagues and the way she can treat them. Add to that open gossip about other team members in an open plan office.

Back to the first women. She has been protected from disciplinary action from two line manages because of her friendship with the grandparent manager.

If she hadn’t had that protection she would have been out of a job at the very least 3 years ago.

The other is simply great at her actress skills when line management are about.

So yesterday I was in the fire line for their toxic collaboration. It felt awful and today I’m unsure how I feel.

Suffice to say I am not one to tolerate being bullied. That is why I became a union rep in the first place.

Bullies have no right to be in any workplace, school or social environment.

So anyhow I went home and decided to immerse myself in something else.

Another attempt at decor.

Thank you to Raindale for letting me use your land to film.

Let me tell you…

Last night I spent some time in SL visiting different places.

This picture is on my sim so not one of the places I visited.

Talking to friends about relationships and such things as I travelled.

One common thread we all can agree on that we have experienced in this virtual way of life, is how hard we fall when we fall.

Online relationships are a beautiful thing in my opinion. The ability to get to really know someone before you may meet gives you something extra that maybe a meeting in a bar in RL wouldn’t.

Human beings are often very guarded creatures and we always hold something back, rightly or wrongly. But in a virtual world we often allow ourselves to really let go. Basically opening our core.

But… now here it comes.

When the relationship goes wrong, the impact that can have on you is immense.

You are like in a vacuum and that other person is the hose out. Or so you believe at the time.

I’ve experienced this, the total adoration of someone I don’t know, yet know. The hours of talking, the sharing of ideas both RL and virtually. Then the crash.

That crash feels more intense than anything you have ever experienced, the pain ten times more than that last RL relationship.

But why?

From my view I believe it’s because you mingle a reality and a fantasy together and it’s hard to destroy any fantasy. After all in life we hold on to our fantasies to see us through our difficult times.

But when our fantasy is devastated the impact it has on our real life person is often quite intense and devastating for some.

Remember that behind every avatar is a human being. A person with vulnerabilities, issues, feelings and RL.

Be kind and treat that person with the respect they deserve.

Leave your negative RL at the door and enjoy the fantasy.

But if you go to reality, do so with care and the knowledge that what you say and do can indeed impact that person.

Enjoy your day.

Coffee time or sleep ?

So I couldn’t shut up for today’s cuppa. You may need 3 cups, a pillow and a blanket.

I mention a firestorm issue which I’ve fixed but below is also a link to the error. Seems having McAfee virus scan software completely rejects the firestorm software since my most recent update, and for a lot of other folk this may be the same.

So I solved it the problem after much angst.

I deleted firestorm and McAfee, and then reinstalled firestorm and a new anti virus software. Voila fixed.

So reconsider purchasing McAfee till they sort this issue out.

The link to the Firestorm issue where you cant launch Firestorm and you get error 0xc0000020  and you run  McAfee is right  Here

She sees you

 

DJust received a message from a young man checking I was ok.

This morning a fire broke out near me in a block of flats that are the replica to mine.

You know the type, clad with that nouveau American aqua cladding and looking all pretty. Well it burnt well by the looks of the footage.

No one was hurt thank god.

But this young man, a old friend of mines son who I watched grow up took the time to check I was ok.

Really touched my heart this overcast morning in Southern England.

There are so many good people around, you just have to see them. 😊

Now don’t ask me what was my idea behind this video. I just had some Halloween on my mind……….
