Countdown till Christmas

Countdown till Christmas

Happy Tuesday one and all from a rather exhausted woman in reality. I think my body and mind need the holidays to arrive pronto.

I’m so tired that once I let myself relax finally I know I’ll be asleep for days. The cat, have I mentioned the cat!! Bondi my ball of fluff, love of my life. His fault.

Every single night he is like a clock. Pounces into my chest to let me know he is awake and ready to play. Honestly he is trying to murder me I am sure!

The perfect crime, who would suspect the beautiful blue eyed handsome pussy cat?

Today’s pic is a freebie top from Entice from their Christmas calendar. Deets below.

Let’s Hype

Let’s Hype

I want to go out and dance. Really go out out.

Today I’m truly missing the life of ten years ago and my feet are itching to head into a club again.

At least we have Second Life where we can if we want live the dream at this time even if clubs are shut. Dance video below and I was feeling very clubby as you will tell.

Winter Shop & Hop

Winter Shop & Hop

Ready to winter shop and get new shoes because you have walked too much?

The Annual winter Shop & Hop in Second Life starts Thursday 10th for the Second Life Birthday Group Members from 9 am SLT. It then officially opens to all the public at 9am SLT on Friday 11 December..

There are 180 Second Life Content Creators participating.

There are 9 regions for you to visit with 20 stores per region.

All stores will have a free gift for you to nab as well as discounts from 20% upwards. I have seen so many discounts averaging around 50% which lets face it, if you are on a budget like me, makes sense. Get all your Christmas shopping done whilst saving a few lindens at the same time.

  • Second Life Birthday Group will get early access to the event on December 10th from 9am SLT onwards.
  • Event is open to the public from December 11th from 9am SLT to January 3rd.

You may want some links to all of this winter shopping craziness.

The official landing page is here when the page opens for you to visit all landing slurls will appear. Until then you need to wait for the Lindens to let you in. Maybe some bribes?

Meanwhile I would get some good comfy shoes on, grab your backpack and Lindens purse. Last but not least a good tip is to lower your graphic’s down and draw distances so you can actually move . Another tip if you are on firestorm viewer is to go to World at the top and scroll down and tick “show friends only”. I find the less people I see the more view there is . Shop like a stealth ninja I say! So its time to prepare for the shopping madness and prepare.

Strumming my pain with his

Strumming my pain with his

Ok I have no idea on the title and why. But that song Killing me softly has been in my head all day. Again no idea why.

The fact that I don’t recall hearing it today is one fact, a pretty good fact. Also that I don’t own a radio either.

No idea how it popped into my head or why because it isn’t a favourite song by any means.

But, it does actually kind of reflect the photo because I have a guitar? Strumming? So there is that. It will do as my explanation anyhow.

I’d love to say that the reason for the image was inspired by my strumming of my guitar earlier and feeling the music flowing through my veins, caught in a creative moment.

But that wouldn’t be true. I just fancied the pose.

There I said it. I fancied the pose and why not. Yet the fact that this song is featuring in my head leaves me wondering if I should go find a man to strum my pain with his finger?

Oh lord I’ll stop right there.

Those pesky plants

Those pesky plants

My plans today. Sorting out my potted plants. Nahhhh not really!!!

Maybe I’ve left it a bit late as we had ice ice baby and in reality they look a little icy dead now. Honestly I am the worst outdoor gardener even if they are only a couple of potted plants!

Inside. I’m the greenest thumb going. go figure.

Today my plans are living the Tier 3 lockdown dream. Imagining life as it used to be and stepping outside just to check I’m not dreaming.

Though let me get something off my chest! Tier 3!! We aren’t meant to cross counties/tiers. So what has my housemate been doing with her boy friend. Going into London to visit the Reach climbing centre. Oh and that place knows they’re out of county as all climbers are registered. So who do we blame? The businesses and the people, or both?

This is going on all the time at a lot of the local climbing places and jujitsu gyms. The shady openings after hours and some during the entire lockdown!

It leaves me and others exasperated as we do what we need to do and basically we are wasting our time.

So that explains the look on my face in my photo and me trying to do the plants.

All details below. Have a good Saturday and be responsible.

Day 4

Day 4

I just realised we are already day 4 in December.

I’m sat here in reality chomping my way at lunch and the holidays are literally around the corner. I’m not prepared or ready. To be honest I’m in a hang on, did we even have a summer? The enjoyment part I mean.

I know I took leave but did I actually get to do anything with it? Nope. That’s because we have been in lockdowns most of this year.

Online Christmas shopping it is!!!

Anyhow aside from that if you are looking for pretend world calendar freebies or cheapies. Entice has a calendar gift each day for the season. Today is day 4 of which I am wearing.

Just a chatty moment

Just a chatty moment

Let’s discuss Rebel Wilson.

I’m a huge fan of hers and have been ever since I first knew her name from Pitch Perfect and then went on to watch all her films.

I find her strong, intelligent, funny and above all so down to earth as an actress and influencer in the world.

I don’t want to see the standard vacuous influencer any more. I want to see the people that reflect real people.

There is more to life for a woman than being the pretty visual.

Hence I admire Rebel greatly because this lady became her own woman without relying on her being a “pretty woman”. She has proven that there is no excuse for women to think that their only path to being somebody is to follow the tits out and flutter the lashes ideal.

You can be simply a woman, use your intelligence and be somebody. Be witty, bigger than life personality and simply just be talented.

In case you are not sold on that, remember Rebel is a lawyer not just an actress.

Never sell yourself short.

In other realms find below Thelmas latest video. Nothing to do with this post but sharing with my readers who would miss it given I didn’t do a blog for it.

It’s beginning

It’s beginning

It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter!!

I love the cold frost of winter mornings so much. The whole being wrapped up in something warm and drinking a hot drink, ready to start the day.

Snow, is a major bonus. Nope, sadly I’m not reporting on snow, I’m just virtually enjoying it.

I actually keep going back to SnowDrops often because of snowboarding. I’ve never had so much fun on my own doing this and frankly no time to chat, I have to beat my last run down.

In the meanwhile my home has changed again in SL. So once it turns into winter I will do another little update.

Meanwhile happy Monday and I hope you are all ready for another eventful week ahead.

Sassy!!!! Seriously sassy!!! This lady Kayla Brenda can sure dance.

But I had to keep it angelic for YouTube because well. Honestly I kept watching myself do this dance thinking man don’t I look the Shizz.

I had visions but I’ll keep them to myself because, I’m a lady! That’s all I’m saying.

I actually really enjoyed making this because I looked sweet but seriously at my age there is nothing sweet . Ha ha

Enjoy the video….

Musing

Musing

Old Harriet went skiing.

On another note. It’s Saturday and I’m still sat here in my pjs. Don’t get me wrong I’ve done housework etc. I just actually need to shower and dress.

But but but, I don’t want to. I just want to curl up on my sofa and watch glorious Christmas films all day. Even though it’s still November here.

There are zillions of Black Friday sales on and I could go online and shop? But seriously do I really need to?

Right now we need to ask ourselves, each time we go to the purchase button, do I need that?

I’m very wary at the moment about my spend because of our current situations. Here in the U.K. people like me who work in the public sector are going to experience a pay freeze. What that really equates to is a pay cut.

People are losing jobs and I’m fully aware more are going to. It’s a pretty bleak look and I keep saying to friends when they go crazy spending, and do you REALLY need that!

My wage literally barely covers my living. It doesn’t allow me much for my own enjoyment and my one thing I use my spare on is my SL hobby and enjoyment. That won’t stop because I believe that I don’t live to work. But that’s it.

So two days ago. Something amazing happened to me. A lovely person purchased and sent me a brand new shiny computer so I can make better videos. I’m totally gobsmacked and in awe. I feel right now really appreciated and I cannot wait to start filming and taking photos with this. I owe him so much and if I could leap on him and hug him I would.

The video is not from the new machine. Though one released in 12 hours from now will be.

Enjoy Harriet.
