Jumo dress in jungle

Welcome to the jungle!

I love that song.

I was 5 months pregnant when I was at the 1992  Guns n Roses “Use your illusion tour” at Wembley Stadium. Right down there in the pit pregnant and dancing.

Welcome to the Jungle came on and I was like this wild woman in a sea of black t shirts wearing my ultra-colourful bright shirt and  tight black  jeans and sneakers. My hair was cascading down my back and I was having the time of my life. My hair was at the time a dark mahogany.

Then I  nearly passed out.

I was saved by a tall pale goth with his long dyed black hair and numerous piercings as he basically nearly carried me to the infirmary part which was central in the ground area.

There he stayed with me while I recovered and we sat and watched the show, him squeezing my hand in reassurance and a genuine caring.

I never knew his name and the only thing I did know was he came all the way from Birmingham on  his own to see the concert.

Wonder what happened to him. Did he grow into an older goth or did he swap his long locks for baldness and middle age?

If we could

If we could

Imagine if we could, walk out of our real front doors wearing such an ensemble?

Would you?

I think if I looked like this in said ensemble I darn well would.

Somehow I can imagine Lady Gaga loving this and wearing something quite similar, only the hat brim would be even bigger because she likes to make that statement.

The wonderful thing about pretend world, we can  wear what we want, be who we want and even if you cant in reality run a marathon or ride a horse,  in pretend world you can.

That’s what is so beautiful about imagination and immersing yourself into creative paths.

Be they virtual worlds, reading, writing, painting. Anything where you can just use your imagination and be the person you would love to be or the person you are, only younger, fitter, able bodied .

Well you get it.

Easter delights

Easter delights

I’ve just been given more chocolate! Good god I am going to become the 2019 floating blimp at this rate.

There’s more to come later from my daughter.

I know some of you may say “you don’t have to eat it”.

To those of you I say “don’t be bloody ridiculous”!

There is no such thing as chocolate in my vicinity that remains untouched.

You will see me soon, floating in a cross wind near you.

Princess

I am far from the princess right now as I stand in the drizzling rain waiting for my lift.

It’s a work day but I’m out of the office going to an Induction day.

I know, kind of funny given I’ve worked for the same place for now 14 years and have had 3 induction days. The induction is 1 year late post restructure and I am hoping has something to learn. Apart from what I already know now.

Viva la free lunch!

It all comes tumbling down

It all comes tumbling down

I haven’t much to say today because I am so incredibly tired.

As you all know the past few days have been pretty sleepless and last night was no exception.

How could I sleep when I spent best part of the night listening out if my son needed anything. Pretty hard to relax when you just want to be sure he is ok.

Best yet I’ve woken up with incredibly sore throat and head and looks like I’ve got a cold or something. Just brilliant.

Last thing he needs is me giving him a cold germ.

And it’s like a domino effect, all comes tumbling down.

So I’m thinking I basically cover my face and use lots of antiseptic to wash my hands.

Now to ring work and give them an update….

In the meantime this dress !!!!!!!!

Nothing to show for it

Nothing to show for it

Do you ever look at your bank balance and think, jeez I have nothing to show for that spend? That is me right now.

I had my groceries delivered this week as I do most months around pay day. I have got into the habit of choosing the same old shopping list each month as I’m a creature of habit like that.

I have subsequently decided that is a poor choice because whilst I wasn’t looking some prices went up and those few cosmetics I threw in my virtual trolley when doing the online shop? Those few cosmetics took my budget spend way over its normal. Now I am looking at my bank balance and thinking frankly ” there is nothing to show for it”.

Mind you, nice lippy and a mascara.

*update* Linden Lab apologised

*update* Linden Lab apologised

Photo has nothing to do with this blog, because well the whole content has changed. Read on…..

Well that was a crazy 24 hours on the internet yesterday don’t you think?

I’m absolutely pleased Strawberry got her apology. It goes to show that when our community joins together, no matter where we are, what language, what culture etc, we are a community and can look after each other pretty well.

Personally I think Linden Lab became rather awesome in my estimations with their public apology.

A lot of high profile companies would not even have bothered because they’re just worried about the money. Linden Lab showed yesterday by that apology that they do care about the community and what their community feels and thinks. And they can listen. Let’s hope that this sets the precedent to more engagement and better customer dealings.

So my virtual hat off to them for their addressing of the issue so fast.

If you never saw the apology here it is https://community.secondlife.com/blogs/entry/2284-an-apology-to-strawberry-singh-a-call-to-youtubers-“un-cease-desist”/
