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

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.

Take a moment

Take a moment

It’s Friday and I’m ready for the weekend to appear so I can take a moment to catch up with myself.

It’s been a pretty manic week reality wise and then of course the issue I raised via a ranty vlog earlier this week.

That vlog was removed, not because I had done anything wrong or in fact any reason to do with me.

I removed it from the YouTube platform because the vlogger it affected requested me to do so. Because there was some kind of agreement made that the copyright strike would be removed, if I removed the video!!!

Does that sit well with me? No not at all! I don’t believe in manipulation or any kind of bartering agreements like that. But, because this person was upset by their dilemma, I did.

In fact I have asked this vlogger if the strike was removed and I have had no response. So you decide.

By not answering I can only assume the outcome.

Now there is something I really need to say about this fiasco, it doesn’t sit well with me when anyone pleads for help and then I feel manipulated by all involved because of a business thought. I won’t go into it right now. It may have to sit with me a while before I do.

But, suffice to say this weekend there will be a vlog to discuss some of the pitfalls out there in both vlogging and also blogging that all of my fellow creators need to know.

Most in fact all bloggers and vloggers are unpaid free advertising for brands.

Now let that sit there while you consider that reality.

In fact do so on this daybed and you will appreciate it even more.

I’ve decided I’m going to speak of the creators I blog for and the events and tell you why I appreciate them.

Today I’m going to tell you about Keira Raindale whose daybed I am blogging.

I’m a useless decor blogger. Honestly I know that. But this lovely lady gives me a go and doesn’t hound me to achieve monumental picture sales with over photoshopped results.

Just a good old fashioned business person who understands that even though I’m not so great, she still gives me a go. Because at the end of the day I try. And when I have the time I go that extra mile by adding a video to show my appreciation.

So my love today goes to the lovely Kiera Raindale.
