How does your garden Grow

How does your garden Grow

How does your garden grow? Well I am guessing at the moment rather well given many people are at home and finding things to do.

How are your bushes?

I personally live in an apartment with a lake view and a balcony so mine is rather spiffing.

My garden is preferably inside and my apartment has a jungle feel with 3 trees in the living room. I have always had a thing about inside plants wherever I have lived. On a big scale I might add.

They help to make me feel calm and more in a peaceful mindset.

But if I had a garden I would consider this idea just as it appears in the picture.

Of course the reality of would look way better than my attempts at décor pictures.

Even in world it looked way better than my picture attempt. Still in Beverley’s video below you do actually get to see the lovely MLaw hanging chair and Raindales Gachas and can appreciate it a little more.

My quiet place

My  quiet place

When I seek peace and quiet, I like to sit on my balcony and absorb the sunshine with the glistening water of the lake in front and the sounds of the ducks and geese.

It’s as close as I get to this image which reminds me of my home in Australia. A place that I miss each and every single day.

I’ve lived a few places in my life.

South Africa, what was once Rhodesia, Swaziland, New Zealand, Australia and now the United Kingdom.

I will always call Australia home. I am Australian.

I am the the person who says g’day when I walk past someone on the street, starts a conversation with someone as we looking at the same bananas and yes walks outside with bare feet. I wear shorts in the winter and my windows are always open.

I love a good meat pie with tomato sauce and a spoon and eating the insides out first before the crust. I love my banana bread toasted for breakfast and a mango for a snack.

Thongs are flip flops to me and a shag on a rock is not a bird, it’s literally a shag on a rock.

To me the word root is for a shag.

This is my quiet place. Here I will spend my day.

Happy Sunday everyone. No dance video? Well there will be but I’ve saved that weekend slot for something else which will all become clear hopefully later today.

In the meantime I will say this gacha from Raindale I love. Because of all of the above.

The cottage by the sea

The cottage by the sea

I quite like the idea of a cottage by the sea.

Right now I’m sitting here on my balcony enjoying this glorious sunset descending down around me, watching the geese flap around.

Choosing to enjoy this moment rather than sit in my apartment staring at a large computer screen.

Glass of Pimms in hand and my iphone in the other.

Moments like this are so precious and when we have them, we need to make the most of them.

One of my favourite things to do in the summer months is simply this, watch the sun slowly go down.

This video isn’t live on You Tube and probably won’t be as I often choose to keep some videos solely available via the blog.

But feel free to watch and see how lovely this cottage is from Raindale in this months Builders Box.

The Bakery

The Bakery

Firstly thank you to all the folk who watched Coffee with Isa yesterday and reached out.

And now for something light hearted and SL

So the Builders Box is producing some gorgeous virtual homes for us.

I have to say I’m always truly amazed at what can be created in the virtual world.

Today I am showing you the gorgeous estate home by Raindale called The Bakery.

You can have a small business and home rolled into one.

I’ve left a link in the credits so you can go check out this house and all its rooms.

On top of that I’m also showing you The Lammon outdoor blanket. Frankly perfect just outside under a tree for relaxing autumnal days before the frost sets in.

Have a great day peoples.

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.
