Today I quite fancy a balloon ride somewhere up there in the sky. No particular destination in mind just as long as it is sunny, safe and the only people allowed are reasonable minded people with a positive view to share.
I see so much negativity out in the world right now that I wish for a magic balloon to take me away.
Though I know, that’s never going to happen. We all know that magic balloons only fly in our minds and in reality we have to face what is real and daft.
I’m just having my lunch and treated myself to a hot cross bun, tea and an orange. Rather simple and unexciting I know. but tasty none the less.
I hope you all have a dream balloon as well in your minds. If you do? Let me know and we can do a race to see who gets to the magical destination first!
I’m just chilling in my real little world and enjoying the peace. I’m not in SL tonight as frankly I don’t feel like it.
Some days reality is deserving of my attention especially when the sun comes out like it did today.
Plus I’m going to give it a break while I go SHEIN mad online. Seriously I’m in purchase mode from there and loving the prices and the quality is pretty good too.
I’ve gone earring mad tonight and treated myself to some T-shirt’s and a few dresses for the summer.
Then it was Amazon’s turn where I went wacko on some gel nail polish and body butters.
So I look forward to my self treats as to be honest I very rarely do them and I feel I should more often. So that’s all I’m saying today because I’ve got the rest of this lovely evening to enjoy and that I shall.
Films night! I’m up late absorbing fantasy.
By the way Saturday Sale is in and today’s number is from Entice.
Brand new Day dress from Entice for the Saturday Sale in dots and Yellow Floral
A truly cluster of one. Systems down, can’t access anything and me here dreaming of laptops flying through the air in sheer frustration.
I’m glad the day is over with because for the only time you will ever hear me say it, I felt bored.
It’s difficult when you have no access to email or folders to find things to do other than wish the phone would ring. You literally have your hands tied and at the same time because it’s work, you can’t exactly leave your seat and find something else to do.
I took to drawing squares and circles on paper and stick men. Then it was hangman and then I thought to myself this could need a shrink kind of doodling.
I then discovered 3D paint on the laptop and painted a 3D woman. That’s it really.
So here’s hoping tomorrow is a better day because I really hate feeling like I’m just sitting waiting for the phone to ring. Give me work pressure any day!!!
This is my pretend look of the train home and out to a meal for the evening.
It’s late afternoon and I spent hours watching Walking Dead last night.
Actually come to think of it I did a few things last night.
Played Among us with Yorkie and Davo. Laughed like the twit I am because frankly I got to be the impostor twice and no one knew. Mwahahaha.
Watched Songbird Covid 23 which seriously was the worst film I have seen in forever! Demi Moore appeared in it and frankly even that isn’t a selling point.
I find it in a bit of poor taste that people are trying to cash in on the Covid, via a Hollywood B style movie at the moment. But then when it comes to money people really have no scruples.
Mind you that’s the same way I feel about social influencers who really think we average people need to see them jetting where they like and on holidays! Seriously many influencers couldn’t be less relevant if they tried harder.
I couldn’t care if the new lipstick they’re wearing is gorgeous or not. Not relevant. Not could I care if they think they look hot in their bikini draped by the pool. Irrelevant. What they eat or how they pamper themselves. Irrelevant.
It’s irrelevant because us mere mortals are living in the real world and struggling along with what’s going on around us.
The one thing I do take away from this era in our lives, is that I know I’d rather see average usual normal people on my social feeds.
They’re far more interesting and more relevant. I can easily keep going in about this, but…..
Another weekend escapes me and tomorrow it’s back to the same old routine. Roll out of bed, breakfast and work. On and on and on.
No seeing anyone apart from the housemate and wondering when my life can pick up again.
I had a lovely video call with my grandson Mason today and it made my day. The sad thing about the call after I said how much I missed him he said “Grandma you’re not in our social bubble so I can’t hug you”.
It cut me inside because no child should grow up seeing life in this way.
It’s January 2021 and it’s been nearly 11 months that we have been living this surreal life.
One thing during this period is I have learnt about friendships and who is really there when we need them. You know, people who you can count on to listen to you and just talk.
I’ve learnt who are not genuine and the selfishness of some I had never noticed before. Ive never been more alone than I am right now and yet at the end of a phone, there’s the path to feeling not alone.
Tangible but not within reach. But still there.
Pick up a phone and ring someone. You just may make them feel less alone.

In the USA, Twerking is a popular booty shaking style of dance that evolved from the New Orleans style of hip-hop known as “bounce” from the bounce music scene in the 1980s. The word “twerking” first appeared on record in the song “Do the Jubilee All” by DJ Jubilee in 1993, in which he chanted, “Twerk baby, twerk baby, twerk, twerk, twerk.

I’m a little worse for wear this morning. I partied and drank rhubarb gin until the early hours of 3am U.K. time and had a great night.
Yorkie, Rosie, Guy and me spent our evening as Strawberry’s flash mob. Poor lady couldn’t get away from us. Then Maddie joined us a little later and we ended up dancing about in the snow in my front garden
All in our virtual world, because let’s face it, reality has tightly locked us down at the moment.
I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the night and I’ll share some of the photos below the credits.
