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.

Lunch

Lunch

It was lunchtime and I literally wolfed down my chicken and rice leftovers from last night. I can tell winter is coming. I crave comfort food.

I’d make a great winter bear!

By the way. This is my old head not current new one.

Last night was Second Life book club with Drax. As I mentioned in my vlog I’m helping out a bit at the moment and it’s been a great experience for me to do so. Very interesting as well listening in and I do spend a fair deal of time laughing in my living room while I’m streaming.

I’m learning a thing or two about controlling my camera when in lag situations and knowing when it’s safe to move. There always is a sweet spot when the lag goes pooof and gone. I saw it happen last night and I was quite in awe as usually under normal situations I just relog or wait till another day. But this time I had no choice! You live and learn as the saying goes.

All I want

All I want

It’s my lunchtime here and all I want to do is go lay on my chaise in my bedroom and nap.

Only thing is I don’t actually have a chaise in reality or a bed so pretty. But I can dream a little.

It’s been a iffy morning and nothing went right so I’m currently all over the place and counting the minutes before I go back to my desk to work.

I thought I’d thrill you with a photo capture of my idea even though I can’t live it.

Mind you I’m trying to imagine myself tottering around in heels and looking so sassy by myself at home.

Truth? You would find me on the floor tripped over. Never going to happen.

Time to reflect and relax

Time to reflect and relax

I have a 4 day weekend which started the moment I logged off my pc yesterday after work at 4pm. Complete relief to shut that down and just find some time to indulge me.

The past few weeks have been a real onslaught and a bit of a struggle trying to work in an environment of constant distraction (other person here) and juggling now 6 people I’m trying to support with my union hat on.

It’s funny how COVID19 has either brought out the great leaders who rise to the occasion. Yet has also highlighted those people who because of distancing feel able to behave less scrupulously in managing situations.

Both in work places or just out in the community.

For example the spate of local thefts. I’m serious. People are home and I guess the idea of burgling homes whilst people are present must be some kind of thrill. My housemates bike was stolen, right under everyone’s noses in a gated private area, where it was chained with all the other bikes. Where all the ground floor neighbours could see. Opportunists or thrill seekers?

But for the next few days I have a don’t give a toss attitude and am going to do my best to disengage from the world of stupid and do my own thing.

I’ll ignore my emails because frankly those people can wait till Tuesday and I’ll eat, watch films, read, walk and do what I love best. Being creative. It’s raining here so I can’t throw in laze in the sun, because I cannot find it.

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….
