Enjoy the moment

Enjoy the moment

I’m on a river in the middle of the water.

The sun is shining and life is good. The birds are singing and I’m alone just thinking about my day and what is new to do.

I was tagged in a post on Facebook today about a little house with a fence around it.

Fenced off from the world. Yes that’s me.

In reality enforced and in SL by choice.

It is no secret that I don’t tend to hangout with many people as often I’m just plainly busy. Lack of time is pretty much a huge decision maker as I work full time in reality and of course have to factor in relaxation away from a screen, life and sleep.

Not enough hours in the day you could say. BUT I’m also known as an island.

I tend to sit myself out to sea far away from crowds and love the time I get to just be alone and feel creative in world. I call it my wind down time and god me a very necessary time as often in reality I can become quite pressured.

My perfect SL time is actually either spent alone just dreaming or with a close friend chatting. Now and then I brace the social side but on the whole I’m an “island in the vast sea”.

Today I’m just a girl in a boat dreaming.

Throw out the old

Throw out the old

It’s Tuesday and another day.

It isn’t such a great week and I doubt it will get any better at the moment.

I have up and down days and today has been one of those down days. I’m not alone, many of us are having these.

I’m questioning the importance of what we hold as important and weighing up if there are things I need to ditch because they no longer fit.

What you may ask? Now that would be a long night if I were to sit here prattling on about it all.

Fact is I’ve been learning what’s important and what is not. Who is important and who is not.

You know the old searching for the meaning of yada yada yada.

I didn’t know where to start so I made a fleeting gesture. I deleted all links to the past of my avatar by destroying my long held group Cheren Estates.

It’s the group I held for nearly ten years of my SL life. I ejected the lot and then removed myself. It’s 2020 and we soon go into 2021 and new chapters need to start.

Call it like a room clean. Next will be the inventory purge of thousands of items that frankly I don’t need.

Next it’s the friends list of people who frankly I really have no darn idea who the heck many of them are. I kid you not!!

So many name changes later I have no idea who half the names on my friend list are. Plus I don’t have time to find out either.

Really, so little time and if we haven’t communicated in the past 12 months then they’re not friends are they. They’re strangers.

As for reality there is also some purging to be done as well.

2021 I plan many new things for myself and the main thing is unshackling myself from things that actually hold no relevance any longer. Even people.

Life’s far too short to hold onto things when we have so much ahead to achieve. It’s good for the soul to give yourself freshness in life. So that’s what I’m going to do.

Sunday bliss

Sunday bliss

Happy Sunday and it’s not snowing here in reality. It’s just rain, rain and more rain.

I was up last night till stupid o’clock and I really don’t know why. Ok I do, I’m trying to change the region I live on to a snow one.

Every year I change my little homes and use all the prims in the world to make my home for the winter. This year I have region control and I really seriously have not a clue what I’m doing.

I stupidly assumed you pop the textures in and hey presto you have a snow region and an ice lake!!! Clearly not. I have icy sea and you can’t skate on it. You sink.

If anyone has any idea how the sea changes to a lake? Asking for a friend. 😳

In the meantime I released my visit to snow drops which is truly beautiful.

The snowboarding is so much fun and you really need to try it sometime.

What a start

What a start

As I flick through my magazine I ponder today. Today is Monday and it’s not a great day. The week has started so bad and to be honest I really want to curl up in a corner and just pretend it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe rock back and forth and howl a bit too.

I made a mistake at work today which I could kick myself hard for. It was a simple mistake that any human under stress could make.

Then of course there was the message I sent to a colleague which was fun and tongue in cheek asking why she wasn’t at work and joking she was having a jolly good time. Turns out her dad died last week. Something a few people knew but wasn’t shared and so I stuck my size 6’s in and made things just that much more worse. Do I feel bad right now? Yes very much so.

Then it was the flu jab. I’m sure that will hurt tomorrow.

Then I learnt tonight an old work colleague took his life around 2 weeks ago. Far too young and a whole life laid ahead he should have lived still.

This is life. It’s not a fantasy. So let me find a nice tree to lay under while I contemplate tomorrow being any better.

Mmmm K my KPop

Mmmm K my KPop

I actually kinda feel these dances and I’d say because they’re so positively cute and fun.

Right now I really embrace the distraction of fun and I’m not averse to featuring dances over and over again when I feel them.

Today the world feels a little different with the last 24 hours and either way whatever you believe or wanted it’s really dumb to trash others views. ie the truly toxic insults I’ve been seeing hurled around Facebook in both my rl and my virtual realms.

Let’s face it that dude is a meme that keeps on giving but that’s him. He has always been that meme.

Hating on each other is pretty toxic and petty and really aren’t we all allowed in our democratic world to have freedom of thought and expression? That doesn’t mean to freely bestow hatred because of peoples choices or political leanings. Smile then move on.

Winners or losers. It’s about being good humans and accepting we don’t all agree in this world.

Wouldn’t it be a really dull place if we did? Enjoy the memes but forgive the rights to have choice.

Win or lose well and carry on. Our virtual worlds are a place to drop this and forgive and just crack on with friendship.

Now enjoy this video because I certainly felt it.

Harriet Reports

Harriet Reports

Trying to record my voices in the lockdown is so hard when I’m not alone. Hence this post and video are done later than I anticipated.

I’m seriously going to have to consider a new regime to get things done. A rigid and less casual approach for the foreseeable future.

Ahh the joys of sharing space!!!

I’m guessing this is the reality for a lot of people right now as we find ourselves more boxed in these days.

Still, Harriet has some news to tell you. Harriet absolutely is returning back to location reporting because let’s face it. Virtual life is not in a lockdown!!

Today she is sponsored by Entice as part of their Saturday sale

Where’s Isa

Where’s Isa

The idea for this title came from a certain little person who looks the spitting image of this avatar.

So I popped my laq head on and shrunk and went on an adventure again.

So as the story goes, Where’s ISA?

To be found at Halloween by Cica Ghost!

Great place as always by Cicaa Ghost. I cheated and used a different wind light only because I needed to show my cute self. Hopefully I’m forgiven for that.

Time to?

Time to?

I was taking today off. Was! But my day of bliss was basically interrupted as my housemate decided suddenly to work from home.

So all my well thought plans basically went flying out the window.

It’s so not the same when you have to be quiet and considerate that work is still functioning in your home. This is the very real side of Covid life I’m really finding frustrating.

So all great plans suddenly come to an end. Back to work now.

Feel it!

Feel it!

So, I’m basically sat here eating shortbread biscuits and a cup of tea to hand.

Call me “Roll em Isa” . Soon you will be able to roll me down the road and use me as a flotation device at the rate I’m putting on the lard. I’m being totally serious here.

I’ve been exceptionally diligent during the whole COVID debacle and apparently there are more restrictions announced today. I decided I’d rather not watch the news because frankly I’d probably shove another biscuit in my mouth.

Yep I’m one of them. Eat when I’m bothered by situations. Seems 2020 is a giant chocolate biscuit of a year.

Covid doesn’t just affect my social life with people but frankly travelling back to Australia and also all the day to day things we take for granted. Trips to the seaside, dinners out, mooching around the shops on a Saturday, hairdressers for a pep up feel good. In fact just about everything.

Oh and don’t get me started on the whole dating thing. We all know I’m single in reality and virtuality. I’m doomed to spend my last days wearing a mask and shoving biscuits in my mouth.

What are the chances of going on dates now? Unless of course you fancy anti bac spraying them and sterilising them first?

I feel better now. Thank you for reading.

McDonalds please

McDonalds please

Do you ever have days where you crave a McDonalds?

That’s been me today, all day.

One of those things I shouldn’t eat because of all the dietary reasons not to. Yet right now all I can think of is how a Caramel Sundae would rock my world after a Big Mac and fries!!

I’m having a weird week of feeling both run down and unwell and when I get like that, food is my carrot on a stick.

Which. Is rather ironic to say because who wants a carrot right now? Not me!

On another note I am now preparing for my new social media direction with Boucleme the Curly girl method.

My email has been set up yesterday by them and they are setting me up in their site as well as today I received an amazing package from them.

I’ll pop a photo under the credits. I’m pretty excited and really nervous about the whole thing. After all at the age of 54 I actually never expected such an opportunity to come my way.

I officially start my contract on the 26th October and I’ll have a code etc to share with people if they are into their curls. Clearly I’ll pop it in my site so anyone can feel free to look at once I have it.

I have set up a YouTube channel and my first video has gone out. I haven’t really shared it because I’m still trying to get used to this whole thing. Its below and so feel free to look if you so choose. The real me rather than the virtual production.

I’ll take the plunge and share in my RL Facebook and se what those pesky RL friends think.

They can be harsh too. So I’ll bite my tongue and cross my fingers.
