Take a moment

Take a moment

It’s Friday and I’m ready for the weekend to appear so I can take a moment to catch up with myself.

It’s been a pretty manic week reality wise and then of course the issue I raised via a ranty vlog earlier this week.

That vlog was removed, not because I had done anything wrong or in fact any reason to do with me.

I removed it from the YouTube platform because the vlogger it affected requested me to do so. Because there was some kind of agreement made that the copyright strike would be removed, if I removed the video!!!

Does that sit well with me? No not at all! I don’t believe in manipulation or any kind of bartering agreements like that. But, because this person was upset by their dilemma, I did.

In fact I have asked this vlogger if the strike was removed and I have had no response. So you decide.

By not answering I can only assume the outcome.

Now there is something I really need to say about this fiasco, it doesn’t sit well with me when anyone pleads for help and then I feel manipulated by all involved because of a business thought. I won’t go into it right now. It may have to sit with me a while before I do.

But, suffice to say this weekend there will be a vlog to discuss some of the pitfalls out there in both vlogging and also blogging that all of my fellow creators need to know.

Most in fact all bloggers and vloggers are unpaid free advertising for brands.

Now let that sit there while you consider that reality.

In fact do so on this daybed and you will appreciate it even more.

I’ve decided I’m going to speak of the creators I blog for and the events and tell you why I appreciate them.

Today I’m going to tell you about Keira Raindale whose daybed I am blogging.

I’m a useless decor blogger. Honestly I know that. But this lovely lady gives me a go and doesn’t hound me to achieve monumental picture sales with over photoshopped results.

Just a good old fashioned business person who understands that even though I’m not so great, she still gives me a go. Because at the end of the day I try. And when I have the time I go that extra mile by adding a video to show my appreciation.

So my love today goes to the lovely Kiera Raindale.

A quiet moment

A quiet moment

I’m having a bit of a hiatus in extreme blogging for a few days.

Also filming. I just require a break for a bit so I can ask myself a few all important questions about the meaning of life etc etc.

Not really. I just fancy some chilling time.

Earlier I connected up my streaming and went live on TWITCH from Sansar.

It wasn’t exciting to watch but I had to test to make sure it’s working. Tomorrow I’ll test going live on all platforms to see if I have the hang of it.

I’m not sure which crazy world I’ll go in but I’ll just spin the bottle and wherever it lands, that will be it.

There is a reason for this madness, which will become clear in July, as long as I get it right.

Other than that it is time for me to strip off and go under cover as Thelma and lay by the water.

Thank God it’s Friday

Thank God it’s Friday

I love giving snippets of new life at mine and Rosie Helendale’s new joint sim. Namaste in Los Angeles.

Be it a picture or a video, the snippets are small.

Amazingly 3 out of 4 rentals have already gone and people moved in, before we have even opened.

Now that’s quite something.

I really cannot wait to share with you.

In fact since this picture was taken, so much has changed.

We are happy with the little world we have created and what will be a lovely small community to hang out in.

Rosie has done the majority of the landscaping and I have just thrown in the materials and houses . Between us we are now landladies to a new home that will be both for pleasure and residence.

So while I lazily sip my tea on the patio, I bid you a Thank god it’s Friday!!!

Thelma has turned into the new Joe Wicks of virtual exercise.

She has been in isolation 332 days. Been moved for the 3rd time. Got leaner.

Today Thelma is showing you the way she keeps fit during this difficult time.

What’s changed?

Thelma’s attitude for one. She has become a lean fighting machine.

Time to

Time to

It’s not long past 10pm here and I’m already in bed. But for the purposes of this blog I’m sat on a swing seat in a cocktail dress waiting for my date.

Seriously what is that about? Two nights in a row I’m too exhausted to even sit at my pc! Totally unheard of.

I spent a bit of time editing a video, but to be fair I gave up as I felt too tired to continue.

This clearly is the new normal.

Quarantine/Isolation exhaustion.

I’m so tired of doing a maximum of not much and that is having the effect of making me want to sfo less.

So as I’m laying here in bed I’m considering ways to change it and feel more get up and go, but with nowhere to go!

It’s crossed my mind that maybe I should order a cross trainer machine or running machine to use at home.

Good old Amazon, here I come….

Today I find myself in the low from this whole COVID19 isolation thing.

I started work this morning and had the usual Microsoft teams video team meeting.

For a start no one looks the same at all. Everyone has changed because they don’t follow the same routines any more.

The only person in that meeting who is the same is me. Apart from the crazy red wig I was wearing to make everyone smile.

I’m used to working from home and just living that laid back lifestyle.

I don’t know what happened. But once the tears welled up, they couldn’t stop. They haven’t stopped all day.

I booked leave immediately for the rest of today and the rest of this week. I then went to bed and slept till 3pm.

I know myself well enough to know I’m imploding and need to realign myself.

The last time I felt this way was in 2016 and at that time I was headed to a bad place in my head.

Human contact is incredibly important. Hugging close family and friends is part of our being human.

My happy place is my children, grandson and my close girlfriends.

I’ve seen none for 6 weeks now. (Not that I’m counting, but I am).

Wherever you are, make the most of your close ones as really all in life that is important is them. ❤️

What I do have are my cherished fur friends Bondi & Tippi who basically are my world. They give the best love right now.

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 garden has changed since this picture. The lovely couch and harp are still out there but I’ve gone a little nuts with my home.

All will be revealed at some stage, if I don’t change my mind before!! Designer Showcase and Raindale. Deets in the credits below.

On another note. I hope you are all ok and looking after yourselves.

We are facing a wierd time in history and bombarded by so much news that we really don’t know what is best to do.

Personally I’m taking the approach of trying not to become obsessed with the situation but at the same time, exercising care and making sure I am not placing myself in situations that could make me carry anything.

I have my own underlying health issues, but so do a heck of a lot of people. Remember, underlying health issues are the ones you cannot easily see.

It’s not just old people, it’s any age that can have one.

My grandson is 4, to be 5 in July. Those that have been with me a long time know Mason’s story.

There are many children like him out there, who come though heart operations but you still have to remember, it’s not always visible.

Children are not immune. Don’t assume that.

Be sensible, don’t panic. But I agree make sure you have food in your cupboards, but for goodness sake, don’t forget the elderly who can’t run to the stores or the poorer people around you and the homeless people.

Donate to food banks!!!

Look out for them. Put your hand in that shopping bag and share.

OMG a shopping vlog?

OMG a shopping vlog?

I am not one to do shopping vlogs.

Not in the traditional how everyone else does it way.

I think I’d rather stick pins in my eyes than walk around shops zooming in and out. It’s not my thing and never will be, I’ll be honest.

I’d be asleep before I even got to the third store.

However, due to being delayed with a lot recently I have come up with the following video to showcase some items both from Raindale and the Equal10 Event.

In fact I quite liked filming it this way and may do this now and then.

I’ve so much more to show over the next week or so but will revert back to my usual.

Happy shopping taster….

Relax

Relax

My Sunday is near over and I’m frankly pretty exhausted.

This weekend has been pretty busy and I don’t feel that it should end. Frankly I want more time to relax and catch up with myself.

Still maybe next weekend?

In the meantime let me sit back and close my eyes.
