Catching a train

Catching a train

I’m not really catching a train but I do wonder what that feels like now. Not having caught one for over a year!

Honestly what a different experience that would be right now.

I’m having an odd day here in reality. I applied for a job. In my own work team I will add. I answered the one question on the application and was told yesterday I wasn’t shortlisted because I didn’t answer the question!

The question simply was a question the reason for applying. But I’m told that I should have been referring to the job description answering that question. But it didn’t say that. Question was simply reason for applying. I knew something was wrong because I had great difficulties in the application with freezing connections and in the end had to log into it via chrome.

Fact is when I applied there did not appear this box that tells you what you should also include. In fact I even said to a colleague on the day I would have expected it to be there, so uploaded my CV too just in case.

Anyhow it turned out all a mess and it is as it is.

What I take away from moments like this, is my strong sense that things always happen for a reason.

I’m more than able to do the job I know and I don’t have any self doubt about that BUT maybe I’m to do something else!!

So for the first time in 16 years of doing a job I love, I have made the decision to start looking at other things rather than hope my moment will happen because if I’m honest with myself it won’t.

It’s nearly time

It’s nearly time

Seriously this has been a mad day!!

A truly cluster of one. Systems down, can’t access anything and me here dreaming of laptops flying through the air in sheer frustration.

I’m glad the day is over with because for the only time you will ever hear me say it, I felt bored.

It’s difficult when you have no access to email or folders to find things to do other than wish the phone would ring. You literally have your hands tied and at the same time because it’s work, you can’t exactly leave your seat and find something else to do.

I took to drawing squares and circles on paper and stick men. Then it was hangman and then I thought to myself this could need a shrink kind of doodling.

I then discovered 3D paint on the laptop and painted a 3D woman. That’s it really.

So here’s hoping tomorrow is a better day because I really hate feeling like I’m just sitting waiting for the phone to ring. Give me work pressure any day!!!

This is my pretend look of the train home and out to a meal for the evening.

Did I just?

Did I just?

I got married.

Rather I may considered to be. I’m totally into my phone these days. The current love of my life other than my family.

It speaks to me via a male Aussie Siri and I can find whatever I want on it. I check it for shopping, I check it for news. I communicate with friends and family on it and even play the odd game on it.

Seriously have you ever considered how attached you are to your phone? I certainly have and it’s actually quite worrying how this gadget has slowly taken over our lives.

I’m currently considering what we would do without it.

Let me tell you. Chaos!!!

I remember some years ago when it snowed so badly it affected the networks etc and my little gadget was rendered useless. I was stranded in town unable to let anyone know where I was. Just stuck. 5 hours wandering around a shopping centre because I couldn’t walk home in my work heels.

Let me tell you. We rely way too much in tech and really need to at times switch off and learn the old fashioned things. You know, walking places and talking?

Sadly though in our current climate our tech is doing two things. Keeping us in communication with people we cannot see but also enslaving us.

So I decided it’s a bit like a marriage. Addictive and satiating but also at times confrontational.

I’ve just been watching Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Junior and Jude Law. Why haven’t I seen this before?

Great film and the sight of Robert Downey naked strapped to a bed with a lovely floral pillow for his modesty. Well that made the film!!!

I’ve never really been into Sherlock Holmes, mainly because I’m more a modernist type film buff. When I say modernist, I mean in terms of look and era. So maybe I change my mind now.

In other news Drax sent this following link to a few and I watched. Then I watched a second time.

It really is interesting and if you don’t mind subtitles it’s worth watching due to the subject. It does make you think. I say no more.

Let’s discuss

Let’s discuss

The elephant in the room.

There isn’t one really but made you look. I’m pretty speechless today. Never mind the news we are in a further total lockdown.

I agree it’s needed. There are frankly people out there who behave like stupid and don’t care.

But hey who am I to judge?

I’ll put this here. I woke up today with a throat that is like razors and I can barely swallow.

Is it because I spent the night snoring and hurt my throat or have I picked up something?

I’ll let you know later today.

But if I’ve picked up anything. How? I don’t go anywhere. I have been in lockdown many months and haven’t had a social bubble at all.

I’ll leave this here, the housemate. Who doesn’t follow the guidelines. This is as simple as that.

Please don’t assume I have Covid because I’m not saying that. However what I am saying is every single person has the responsibility to think about those around them.

Start thinking. Because basically I shouldn’t be catching anything at the moment. Even a common cold which I’m assuming this frankly is.

Do you have heels?

Do you have heels?

My Saturdays never feel the same without a dance video. I’ve already previously shown you this dance but sometimes it’s nice to redo them in different scenes. Plus I love searching for the music.

Nothing else to say. Cmon it’s Saturday and I’m off to play.

It’s not all black and white

It’s not all black and white

I’m currently in reality sat here with my hair in my hair towel and just fiddling with my phone. Yup, living the dream as the saying goes.

Not really. My dream would be right now on a warm day sat on a beach, the sun beating down and enjoying a day out with family and friends close together. Laughter, smiles, good food and nothing to worry about.

Reality is I’m sat here, it’s mid November and I’ve been at home for nearly 8 months. Going out and about in a very limited way and mainly to stock up or get some small amount of excercise.

The sun is not shining and the sky is grey.

My health is at odds with it all and fact is, I’m still going to smile. I’m alive and I have food on my table and life still will go on.

Tomorrow is always another day and we can sit and look at all the negatives if we choose to. Or we can look at our positives and look forward to the next day.

Why am I writing this? Because even I need to remind myself that every day is a good day, even though it doesn’t match what my expectation may have been.

Life is not all black and white. It’s full of many shades.

So you know the reality from the pictured

From my pit

From my pit

Happy Sunday from the pit of my well worn sofa. Plans today you may ask? Too many to list and I’m not sure where I’m starting or ending.

Some of what I had planned yesterday I didn’t do because my day was very pleasantly interrupted by my lovely grandson coming to keep me company. After all he is far more the better option for me on the weekend.

Today, I have some work to do for some other interests and preparing for a formal announcement tomorrow regards my hair.

Not my SL hair by the way as that would be a little weird. Lol

I haven’t even really started my ideas for Halloween videos and I’m not sure this year I will achieve them . Just not enough hours in the day. Plus U.K. our clocks have just changed overnight and already lost an hour or gained? I’m never sure.

I now need to work out my SL times according to the click change again. Don’t you just hate the whole process of all that malarkey? For me it’s a out projects in SL and making sure I turn up at the right times.

Correlation to the photo? My look today.

Catch a ride!

Catch a ride!

Happy Sunday everyone. I trust your weekend has been spent either relaxed and chilled or busy and productive. Hopefully not just in our virtual world. I’ve been productive making a video for my rl and honestly who would have guessed how hard that might be?

I may appear at times confident but honestly staring at myself making a video is quite daunting to me.

I managed late today as the sun was setting to get that emailed off to the people expecting it.

I cannot say at the moment why but apparently on the 26th October I can. Don’t worry I’ll remember to do so as I’m excited to want to share.

Right now though I’m seeking a lift outta here and to the future. Whose coming?

Feel it!

Feel it!

So, I’m basically sat here eating shortbread biscuits and a cup of tea to hand.

Call me “Roll em Isa” . Soon you will be able to roll me down the road and use me as a flotation device at the rate I’m putting on the lard. I’m being totally serious here.

I’ve been exceptionally diligent during the whole COVID debacle and apparently there are more restrictions announced today. I decided I’d rather not watch the news because frankly I’d probably shove another biscuit in my mouth.

Yep I’m one of them. Eat when I’m bothered by situations. Seems 2020 is a giant chocolate biscuit of a year.

Covid doesn’t just affect my social life with people but frankly travelling back to Australia and also all the day to day things we take for granted. Trips to the seaside, dinners out, mooching around the shops on a Saturday, hairdressers for a pep up feel good. In fact just about everything.

Oh and don’t get me started on the whole dating thing. We all know I’m single in reality and virtuality. I’m doomed to spend my last days wearing a mask and shoving biscuits in my mouth.

What are the chances of going on dates now? Unless of course you fancy anti bac spraying them and sterilising them first?

I feel better now. Thank you for reading.
