Time to relax

Time to relax

Nearly midnight and I’m going to crash to sleep.

I’m on leave all this week from work and yet what did I do last night? I logged in on the quiet to do some work.

Is it because I miss it or am I admitting I hate finding things sitting in my inbox when I log in after a holiday period?

It’s the latter. Hence I never truly take a break because let’s face the facts, no one does my work if I’m not there. It just sits and piles up instead.

Long gone are the days when you closed the door to work and would return from a break refreshed and feel ready to start again.

These days you have an overwhelming load, take leave then when you return the overwhelming load has doubled. Those are the facts.

I don’t feel very rested anyhow. I’m still under the feeling of being rough and not myself and struggling to get my sugar levels down.

On top of that the medication doubling is really not agreeing with me either. All in all, 2 steps forward and 3 feel to go back.

So let’s live vicariously through this picture instead. An Italian Holiday and I’m just about to head for dinner on the pier. I look rather tested and the sun is just starting to colour my skin.

Today I am chilling on the sofa on and off.

Frankly as the day has gone on my body is aching like I’ve had a good kicking and my stomach is having protests shrieks.

I had part one of my COVID vaccine yesterday (The Astra Zeneca) and part two in a few weeks from now.

They weren’t lying when they said it will make your arm hurt as it really does. Hopefully after today it’s plain sailing and job nearly done.

I have no fear of it as I have had the flu vaccine.

However if I start talking in tongues and tap dancing every five minutes. ……..get me an agent!!!

On we go

On we go

Welcome to another week of life!!! Leap out of bed and celebrate that your alive, even if you feel stuck in lockdown.

I’ll be honest my leap is pretty low and my landing sounds like a herd of cattle rampaging past.

Anyone else find they cannot stop eating this year? Seriously it’s like I’m a bear who needs to eat so I can hibernate.

In saying that pretty soon I won’t be able to drag my extra lard around and I’ll end up turning into the flotation device when the next great flood comes. Or I’m chow for the rabid dogs when the next ice age rolls over

Most people I know are saying similar things and I’m glad I’m not that alone in this because food and me are not good friends. We are lovers!!!

Still in my pretend existence, I’m lithe and athletic and can dance like the professionals. I’ll have that!

Have a great day and it’s never as bad as you think. ❤️

I need a drink

I need a drink

Welcome to Monday! What a day is all I can say.

I had my liver scanned today after a 4 month delay due to COVID lockdown and frankly the way I see it if there was anything to worry about then meh. As in oh well. Not much else I can add to that.

Work. Well that was full on and I don’t think I even caught up with myself, let alone anything anyone else may have asked me to do.

In the grand scheme, that’s the way it rolls for today.

When I say I need a drink. I don’t mean alcohol by the way. The title just fitted with the photo. But it’s the inference I just need a moment.

Let the day catch up with me with a nice hot cup of tea while my mushy head processes today.

It is only Monday. Good lord I hate to think what the rest of the week entails.

Anyhow in to the outfit for today and my mush gush over the people I blog for.

Designer Showcase. The Designer Showcase is one of the longest running fashion events in Second Life. Over 12 years now. Quietly steady and just there each month with a variety of people in Second Life bringing their works to the fore.

What I love about working with them is a genuine strong set of principles and a feeling of being incredibly appreciated. Ive been with them since I basically started and that’s been omg since 2016 ish. So long I’m losing my marbles already.

I’m wondering if the owner Aisha may consider a pension plan for me as I’ll likely be still blogging with her right to the death.

One thing about me is I truly appreciate those that gave me a chance. Who believed in me and took a chance on me. Designer Showcase certainly did and for that I owe them a lot of gratitude for letting me loose at making photos and videos using stuff.

Anyhow enough of that gush. I’m off to crack the kettle on and indulge in a Tetleys.

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?

I wrote a story : it was a cold rainy night. Nothing was heard but the sounds of the rain beating on the tin roof.

The princess was eaten by dingos.

The End!

Sunday mornings

Sunday mornings

I woke up earlier barely able to breathe.

In my head I was panicking thinking OMG this is it and I wont be found for a fortnight till someone thinks to come by and beat the door down. By then the cats would have started gnawing at my toes and probably have logged into my SL and taken over. Partied with random furries and then started up their own furry sim.

I actually woke up to find my male cat who weighs around 9kg sitting on my chest asleep on me.

I know there is love and all that and I appreciate his feelings of close. But Im sure he is trying to kill me.
