Im like a moving butterfly, flying from leaf to leaf looking for my forever home.
Yep moved again!!
The beautiful place Rosie and I had is no more, since a nightclub opened on the other half of the region and basically shoved out scripted this and that and our lag went from perfect to lets walk in treacle. Nature of the beast when you share a sim or a region. You have no control of the out look beyond your own 4 lines.
Rosie had done a great job of the vram police and making sure that everything on the land meant there was no drain on the computer when we walked around etc.
In one week that changed and frankly that was it. Move.
So here I am again showing you a new place but also showing you the old place as a visit down memory lane as I hadnt really got around to the full show off. Clearly I am rambling again which I tend to do .
Funny thing SL is a great place for not feeling too sad when things like this happen as you just each time create your own fantasy and its like going home.
So another year ends and we say goodbye to all the old and go into welcoming the new.
Or rather an anticipation for something new and a list of resolutions we set ourselves and by month 3 already fail in.
Why do we do this?
Save it all up for one night and promise ourselves changes we know deep down that if we truly meant them, we would be already on our way to achieving them?
This year I have zero intention of resolution making. I still have the past 25 years of those I’m still yet to achieve. So I may as well reverse and start from that point.
Or I just accept what is and rather than set myself these targets, just walk into the new year and grab it by the balls.
I can say I have a few projects coming up in 2020 which I’m excited about and that is something I look forward to sharing as the year evolves. But not just yet.
I prefer to share after the fact. Not before.
One reflection I have as I sit here tapping on my phone is that I do want to move towards live-streaming . But I’m not sure I want to do virtual live streaming.
There’s other projects in my head that I want to try out separate to virtual and I may yet.
I’m also still seeking advice on supporting people struggling with social media trolling.
That is a topic I spoke about and I’m very passionate about. But it needs to be done properly with all the safety mechanisms in place for confidentiality as well as bringing people on board who are trained.
This project may be wider than SL so hence I’m being very careful about how it’s done. But watch this space!
One major plan I do have in 2020 is that I have decided after nearly 11 years of caring and supporting people in the work place. It’s time for me to step back and allow myself to experience life with a little less pressure in it.
Apart from a huge court case coming up in July which is the culmination of the last 5 years of a case which had huge impact on me and affected me mentally, the time is nigh that I cut myself the slack. I shall be stepping down from the union and letting someone else take those reigns up. The court case will also give me closure to what hurt my soul.
I wish you all a very Happy New Year and a wish that 2020 is a lot more balanced than 2019.
Sadly deep down I don’t believe that will happen. We just need to make the best of what we can and certainly be a lot nicer and kinder to each other. 🥳🥳
I’ll be fairly quiet the next few days apart from a Christmas video.
But wanted to wish you all a Merry (those who drink) and Happy (those who just are) Christmas period.
Currently I’m pretty much feeling sick and mine may very well be on my sofa tomorrow coughing a razor blade or two. (Not literally, I’m not that magical)!
I can’t exactly attend a houseful of people like this. Unfair to them, but more so unfair to me.
I have no taste buds or sense of smell and it will just be a wasted moment of me whining the whole day about ow rubbish I feel.
Today I’m feeling pretty sorry for myself like I’m the only one in the world feeling bleh.
Logically and realistically speaking I’m not, but allow me the self indulgence as I rarely get to feel sorry for myself and revel in it. I figure a gin gargle later may be called for. Medicinal purposes of course.
Today I have to wrap my home made gifts and then also bake the dessert for everyone for tomorrow and lots of biscuits. Don’t worry I will demonstrate ultra sterile behaviours whilst doing so.
Have a great time and be nice to each other. Even once a year is better than not at all.

I had a lovely day with work today and the festive spirit is definitely in the air with the office like Santa’s grotto.
I would have taken photos but it’s a government office and due to confidentiality etc etc never a good idea to share work publicly. So you will just have to imagine Santa’s grotto.
I really have nothing to say because I’m still in the moment of what a lovely day it has been. Chilling in the sofa with the cats like the cat lady I am and considering a hot chocolate in my brand new glorious secret Santa mug. Not so secret because I know who gave it to me.
I then came home to a huge box outside my front door from a floral company. Inside a basket with roses, bottle wine and box of chocolates.
I did get excited thinking I had a secret admirer then realised it was from my landlady.
I had a conversation with my cat Bondi earlier. As you can rightly guess, he really didn’t answer me but to state he wanted food.
Let me take a moment and point out that I actually have two cats Bondi and Tippi.
They are these days the Ying to my Yang. My Ping to my Pong.
Despite the synchronicity between us I still don’t have a damned idea what that furry critter says to me half the time. She on the other hand, has nothing to say.
What I will tell you is that when I dress in the morning and look in the mirror, Bondi is the one to look at me and cast his approving eye over me. I could believe it is approving or maybe it’s with no interest. I’ll stick to the first idea.
After all, it’s him that snuggles up with me on the sofa.
