Viva La Vida

There was me late at night recording this video and trying not to wake anyone.

I got home quite late as went to a friends for a meal straight after work. I came home a few hours later stuffed!!

Then I remembered I had a load of washing that had to be done so I can wear the top I am wearing today and a few blogs I needed to finish. This being one of them.

I go to record and then realise its late and you can hear a pin drop.

So apologies if you can't hear a word, just pretend it's ASMR.

Viva La Vida, long live life.

Stop and look

You know that saying "Stop and smell the roses?"

I keep trying to remind myself to do that. So this morning on the way to my bus I stopped to smell a few flowers. Slugs!!!

Remind me not to touch people's plants when it's been warm and damp!

Yes I know the saying refers to life etc etc.

I just figured why not stop and smell the plants. I walk past these gorgeous gardens every day and often think I'd love to smell the flowers. So I did and then jumped back like the atypical person who had come face to face with a mouse.

Still, I guess the home owners probably got their mornings amusement from that.

Did you know these critters climbed up plants? No, neither did I.

I have always seen them on the pavement but actually never climb a plant.

Anyhow stopping to smell the roses applies to life as well.

Every day I see the same people on my facebooks complaining about life etc etc.

I want to tell these people, STOP and smell the roses.

There is always something sweet if you take the time to look and appreciate it.

Yes it can be hard, believe me I know that full well.

However, we are all masters of our own destinies and have to accept the responsibility of these.

So smell the roses today and you just never know what you may find. I found a slug. But it wasn't a bad thing.

That slug represented something living and vibrant.

Now for the clothes…

All dressed up

So its Friday night and what am I doing? Writing this blog.

I just realised today in many ways I should be on some hot date somewhere, sipping wine and flirting like a floozy.

In actual fact I am in my living room and too shattered to even think about getting dressed up and stepping out the front door.

Frankly what a week!

So I share with you another moment in my playing dress up life which is something I do love to do and that is dress up and show you. Still though, wish I had a date.

That old vineyard

I’m at this beautiful old vineyard house and the musicians are playing, the smell of pasta being cooked and my glass of red wine being poured by the man of my dreams.

Then, I wake up!

The scene was almost similar  in my imagination when I came to this sim Noelia Island to do my video blog. Only there was no smell of pasta (because technology hasn’t quite achieved scratch n sniff yet) and there was no man (though I guess you could count the male camming me from the other end of the sim).

Such a lovely back drop for an Italian afternoon.

The reality is I’m currently on the bus headed to work and the only things I smell are over done perfume and bad BO from the guy in front of me that also reeks of days old overkill on beer.

Mind you the woman in front of  him who I have always fondly called fag ash lil outdoes them all as I can smell her ashtray body from here. 

I’ve just ruined my Italian vineyard image.

I know, I’ll watch the video below instead to remind me.

Summer daze

Today I won’t ramble about the things I can’t do as it then I’ll be guilty of whining or moaning or any other term we use when a record is stuck on one subject.

Suffice to say my right hand/arm is currently taking quite a hammering this past week making up for the useless left.

So instead I’m going to dwell on the good things.

The genuine SL and RL people who have either logged in to check on me or as one does in the real world phoned or visited.

This experience has taught me how I place at times value in the wrong people and overlook those that I shouldn’t.

After all it’s the people that arrive in your hours of need that are the genuine people.

I have so many friends on my RL and SL friends lists and yet in one hand the true value of those friendships become abundantly clear.

I think the superficiality of social media etc is so that people only step in and out at their leisure or whim.  But the real human side is the side we are all guilty of neglecting.

Which leads me to the fact that there are so many elderly or disabled people out there in worse circumstances than me and are completely alone.

I’m currently having a taste of what it’s like to need people.

I can’t even imagine how they must feel when they have no one they can turn to or rely on to do the simple things we all take for granted. Washing ourselves, going to the toilet, brushing your own hair, etc.

I think despite my own internal misery I’ve been feeling and still am to a degree, I realise how lucky I am really.

I know once my shoulder has healed, I’ll be back at work as normal, fetching cups of tea for visiting friends, picking up my grandson.

But, there are some that this is a permanent way of life.

My heart actually breaks knowing that.

You don’t understand someone’s plight till you have walked a few steps in their shoes. I’ve done a few shadow steps and frankly I’m totally grateful that this is a passing period. I hope it is at any rate.

I will be in August wearing  my summer outfit, heading to Toulouse on my summer week away in RL. Well I hope anyhow.

I do like that you can in SL get suitcases to match your clothes. Hmmmmm I wonder……..

Coffee time with Isa and Rosie

I had a friend come over for a coffee with Isa the other day. After talking for an hour and realising I hadn’t pressed the record button, we did it all over again.

Luckily this was done  prior to my arm going kaput as frankly I’m not sure how I would have achieved those hair plaits otherwise.

Rosie did her version as well and you will find the link to that below my video in You Tube.
