Tinder Dates!

Tinder Dates!

Our society has become a little bit disposable in its attitude to matters of the heart.

I remember the “olden days” when you met someone and you fell hook line and sinker and you appreciated that person for all their good and bad.

Roll on to 2020 and let’s face it, those hook line and sinker butterfly feelings don’t quite last and matters of the heart and such are very transient.

Once they dissipate people these days tend to then move onto the next eye candy that they want to taste better and riper candies. The only thing is those riper candies also soon lose their flavours. Then what?

Any wonder trust and the love word have became less meaningful and devalued.

Social media such as Facebook and Instagram are the medium where people post their heady “love pics”, fooling onlookers into believing that life is perfect etc etc.

But it rarely is.

The facts are that people are less honest about life these days, filtering it all to look great and when things go wrong, things are disposable and they just find the next colourful bite.

That’s our modern reality.

How many heady love moments have you had where you were suddenly swiped left because they swiped right for someone else?

Coffee before Ciara hits

Coffee before Ciara hits

U.K. is being hit this weekend by Storm Ciara and frankly I was expecting it late tomorrow.

It’s 2 am here and as I lay in bed I can hear the winds are picking up and the wildlife on the lakes where I live unsettled.

Even my cats have been pacing which actually unsettled me.

So to distract myself I did a vlog and now I may try sleep.

Kent where I live is expecting 80mph winds and frankly I’m doubtful I will get much sleep.

Anyhow the video and goodnight ……..

Selly moments

Selly moments

I guess when you feel like things are missing a beat. Find a moment, let your hair down and dance like you are alone.

If you are alone dance like you are in a crowd, and it’s the best dance of your life.

It’s the Selly dance.

Wake up and dance

Wake up and dance

So the title isn’t quite what I am in this moment of time doing.

In reality I am on my balcony with a cup of tea, a boob tube dress on and my sunglasses enjoying the morning sunshine.

This is what I call bliss.

Not sat inside in front of a computer screen turning into the next generation of bloodless, glassy eyed computer generated humans.

Someone asked me recently do I spend all my time on the PC because I output so much in the form of video, blogging and social media.

The answer is in a fashion no.

I often have my pc running but I am not sat in front of it. I have my virtual world running but I am necessarily participating in it.

I run that part of my life like a text message. When I get an idea I go to it. The rest of the time I am doing real things. Family, friends, housework and yes even sunshine. Yesterday was a whole day of family apart from an initial early morning period when I worked on this video.

One thing I learnt a long time back is to be less slave to the desk and more to the transportable appliances. Also health wise it’s better to be more mobile and less sedentary. I have to be or my health would suffer.

So this blog is right now constructed from my iPhone app.

Many of my blogs are. Regular slurls are stored on a notepad on my phone and photos are offline in Flickr if I haven’t uploaded them to WordPress.

I blog on the bus, on my sofa, at friends having coffee, in my lunch breaks and as you know right now in the sunshine. Living life.

If I can impart anything to any blogger it is get the app! Organise the regular links into a notepad on your phone and store photos in private on Flickr and it’s so simple to download them to your phone if you need them.

Oh and don’t forget the item you are blogging.  I usually only have those in my WordPress draft on the pc. The rest is done right here doing something else.

Now the video….

Happy Sunday’s. Nothing ends a Saturday night better than a epic mushy song and a woman dancing on the edge of a cliff.

Waiting for sunshine

Waiting for sunshine

The wait is over.

According to the morning news we will reach the heady heights of around 21 celcius locally today. Serious dressing decisions had to be made on my part for the day ahead.

Out comes the linen dress and the pale pink lippy. I’m ready to be Miss Spring.

I absolutely love spring. The blossom trees, daffodils and tulips adorning gardens and the smell of fresh cut grass everywhere as people excitedly get themselves ready for some outside living.

Then of course sunglasses.

In RL I have something like 7 pairs of sunglasses that I never wear.

Yet in SL I wear them a lot. Go figure.

Just another day

Just another day

Of course it’s just another day in our real worlds. Cleaning, washing, shopping and the list goes on. But take some time and disappear into another world, those tasks seem a million miles away.

I’ve done them all today  and even done some babysitting on top of that. Call me superwoman if you will.

My little pixel gal went to the snow again. To be fair you can’t escape from the snow in SL at the moment as most sims are embracing that we are heading to Christmas and traditionally this comes with snow.

However I think what is forgotten is there are parts of the world that are basking in sunshine and Christmas is a salad and a cold meat. 

But, I have  to admit I love the winter wonderlands. Every one I’ve been to so far is truly like a work of art.

Budget like a housewife

I’m staring out the bus right now and wondering about this day ahead.

I’ve been called into meetings about restructures so many times in the past year. Average redundancy is around 20-40  each time.

That’s a hell of a lot of skills lost and people who will have mortgages and families to worry about. Two of these people in the pool could potentially be a couple. If they both lose their jobs? Doesn’t bear thinking about the devastation that family would suffer.

This is the reality.

This is happening everywhere and has been ongoing a few years now. But seems to be increasing.

The more people you lose from the public sector the less capable the services become. It’s a false economy slashing jobs to save money. 

The wise would have been preparing in the good times for the bad times. That’s what every healthy wise budget person does. But of course the government? 

Well I’ll leave that thought with you while I laugh at their unwise highly paid financial decision makers.

Budget like a housewife and you may just get it!
