Are You?

Are You?

I felt like a chat today. I’m in a really odd frame of mind. Seriously.

I want to laugh, chatter but at the same time I’m in a state of awareness of sorts.

A truly odd day. I’m ok, are you?

Let’s chat. Well you can listen then tell me your state of play/mind wiggly thoughts you’re having.

Well I’ve had my invite for the Vaccine. Strangely I feel like it’s a history making moment.

Not that I am important to historical noting but because it’s that feeling that in years from now what is debated amongst people will become the norm.

I prefer to look at it like those wordings “one small step for us, one giant leap for everyone”.

(Note my politically correct version before someone decides to have a keyboard moment! )

I personally am grateful that there is a vaccine and it’s out there. There’s no ultimate guarantees but at least it’s a start. Much like the flu vaccine. It won’t get rid of the damn pesky virus, but perhaps make its existence less taxing on our bodies.

I work with a few people who are anti vaxxers and what we fondly call Covid idiots.

You know the ones, just because no one they personally know has been affected, then clearly it doesn’t exist mindset.

It’s difficult having conversations on the subject because of this and it does make me feel that our world is divided and living in parallels.

I’ve said this before much like the Mandela effect, there is this Covid effect. We’re living in the Matrix!!!

Now here I’m living in the Matrix and my virtual person is me!!!

Dancing in the fields

Dancing in the fields

Today has been a simply gorgeous day. Gorgeous!! I could have danced in the fields.

I allowed myself to step into the outside world and went for an hour long walk. That was 4 hours ago. Now I’m absolutely shattered. As in I need a sleep. Seriously I can barely keep my eyes open.

I have to say every man and his dog was out there. You would be forgiven to think the pandemic never existed. Honestly I had to jump out the way of the groups walking around.

Then there are the runners! Those sweaters, you know them. They run past and flick their sweat as they pant like the running dead going past. Those people!!

Honestly there was a sweat event at the lakes today. Again groups of them. Giving you mega sweat instead of lonely sweat. That’s more than any non sweater wants to receive.

Why do I ramble about sweat? Because Covid travelling unconsciously. That’s simple.

Are you present?

Are you present?

I can’t remember. Is it Wednesday or Thursday?

Seriously unless I look at the calendar on my phone. I’m struggling to accept we are near the end of Thursday.

I’m finding time is feeling like it’s disappearing before our eyes. I blink and it’s already another day. I wish it would just slow down a little.

Let me catch up.

This week I have really done little work as I’ve suddenly had an influx of union meetings and tasks to do. Those tasks relate to writing reports and doing checks . Which I love doing. It’s my investigative personality that gets to be used.

Yesterday I was back to back in meetings for 4 hours without any break at all. Have you ever tried not going to pee in that length of time when you were kinda needing to go at the start?

Let me tell you the pain was real. Don’t forget I’m also diabetic. The need to pee is even more prevalent.

Unfortunately there is an attitude to presenteesm that I think has evolved due to video meetings. People now forget that where you were sat in a room together you would just excuse yourself and pop to the loo. Now?? Now people expect your presence without break. There is no longer a consideration that you could leave the room anymore.

I believe this will be my next project to undertake. Remove presenteesm from the work place.

It’s a bad habit to get into so let’s just stop that now. If your guilty of that mindset. Change it!!

Now below is a video for the current ACCESS Event.

I could you know

I could you know

I just jumped out the shower and was most shocked to see a strange person in my bathroom. I screamed, took a step sideways and realised it was me in the mirror!

I could very easily look like this avatars photo.

Seriously I could. If only I hadn’t eaten all the pies during lockdown. Then aged another 100 years thinking about how I ate all the pies during lockdown.

No I’m not literally meaning pies, however the fat content may scream the whole calorie consumption I refer to.

Honestly, hands up. Who else has found themselves just going through this ridiculous phase of consuming more than usual or with less thought than usual?

I wake up each day and look in the mirror and give myself this talking to. Clearly I don’t listen to me at all. Clearly I need an intervention.

Oh hang on, lockdown. No interventions.

Ok next week maybe.

I’ve added Harriets interview with Ernie Banders as why not.

There’s always a story to tell

There’s always a story to tell

I’m sat here on my sofa after attending the Second Life Book club. Sadly I was there in spirit rather than hearing presence as my earphones are broken. The reason was my house mate was watching a film so it’s rude to sit there with the computer blasting away on loud speaker.

That’s ok as the great thing about the book club streams are you can listen to them later if you missed them at all. So there’s always a plus there if you look for it.

I’m considering my list of to do things now and I feel I have not enough hours in any one day to do all the things I want to do. That’s pretty much summing me up at the moment. A head full of ideas that need a mind map to plan them!

The best place to do it would be by the lake relaxing in a teepee hut with the water trickling away behind me as my head gathers and I write each thought down. Very much like my virtual image here.

I actually have a novel in my head. It’s been there for many years. The actual first sentence is the challenge because at what point do I begin.

That has been my dilemma for as long as I can remember, also the manner in which I write. That may require some work I’m all too aware.

The novel is to be about a girl who travels through life never knowing where she fits and where she is headed. It begins in childhood with a family background that is not usual. Not conforming and full of moments of fear and at the same time love.

One day I’ll begin. Just not yet. I’m not ready to tell that story till I know the ending.

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

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.
