Yes!!!

Yes!!!

Hump day!

So why not dress for the occasion.

I’m celebrating the end of the week now. By the time it does come I’ll be so tired that I need a nap!

Honestly the past two weeks have been so full on that I look forward to the weekends just to sleep. Yes sleep!

So when Hump day comes along, Im feeling that the ride to Friday is all the way downhill to my comfy place. aka the bed.

This week is a hectic week as Rosie and I have ended the home we created. Sadly a club has moved in next door and no matter the amount of lowering VRAM that was done on our side trying to make it less laggy, when someone else comes in, its like you are fighting back in the treacle.

So the result is, Rosie got her own homestead and I have moved to another homestead with a friend.

Ive made a little home and just finishing it off and dragged one of my tenants with who has his own little island now and made sure he has all the privacy in the world.

So that may be my first video this weekend just to show you the move and what I left.

Rosie has amazing landscaping skills she needs to utilise.

Id always say if you have some spot that needs some assistance to landscape, ask Rosie!

But don’t tell her I said so!!!

Shhhh mums the word

Call me Princess?

Call me Princess?

I can honestly say I have never been the kind of woman a man could call babe, sexy , sugar and the list goes on.

Anyone who knows me will know I’m one of those women who feels incredibly awkward if some strange dude suddenly calls me “hey babe” Or “Hey sexy” or any of those kind of phrases.

It’s not even because I find it irritating as a women to be referred to in that manner, but more so the familiarity of it before I am familiar. Get what I mean?

Hence on rl dating sites I’m a perfect nightmare. No matter how much of my ideal heartthrob you are, that my knees may jitter and my nether regions become like moving putty, call me babe, sexy or anything like that I turn into ice and you’re gone.

So years later I’m still on dating sites and not finding that unfamiliar person. I probably never will because society today is so transient in how relationships are formed.

You see I’m not the sort of person who easily feels all warm and fuzzy if I’m told I’m beautiful, sexy, etc. I look in my own mirror each day and I see me for who I am and my assets that are not related to physical appearance. I know my flaws like a toad map, I know my bad habits etc.

The person who eventually ( or maybe never) gets me is the one who actually is honest enough to see all my flaws, tells me they see them but still wants me because they see all my other good parts of my person. That person can call me Liz.

Or maybe one day Princess.

Last night I had a party

Last night I had a party

Good morning world.

Last night I woke up at 1 am, put on my finery and went to a live stream book event.

Ok, the truth?

Last night I woke up at 1am and dragged my pyjama clad self to my pc, bottle of water in hand and was the camera woman for the live stream debut of the of The Mystery Hour with Con Sweeney in Second Life.

It was something I was approached to do and I didn’t hesitate in saying yes to even though the times are at odds with my reality.

Con Sweeney is a Social Media Advisor and Strategy and Applications Consultant in New York.

Currently the emphasis is on the Mystery writers of America and how they are doing during Covid and promoting their works.

If anything, what a great way to introduce non virtual people into the virtual world and enabling another platform opened up to show how people can come together and communicate and collaborate despite distance and dare I say it COVID19!

This will run every 3rd Monday in the Month at Draxs book venue and yep you shall see me there poised filming like a camera woman. Ooo I might purchase myself a virtual prop for this!!!

The YouTube channel is Here. Hit subscribe and the bell to be alerted to the next upcoming authors to be swooped into our Second Life.

Now it’s early morning and yes I woke up normal time. I’m sitting here drinking tea in my home from Wild at the Designer Showcase. Waiting for a man to tend to my boiler!

Yes you read that right!

Under the waterfall

Under the waterfall

As I stand here by the falls . My tears fall silently upon my heart but cannot be seen.

I’m going to be brutally honest here.

I cry inside with the pain of a mother’s heart that is separated from her children.

I have not seen my son nearly 3 months now and my daughter fleetingly a few weeks ago with my grandson outside on the pavement.

I was excited in many ways that I’d be able to have either of my children come here and come inside and hug from this weekend. Spend some real time together.

But you see that’s not going to happen.

Because I share my home with someone who hasn’t exactly followed the social distancing rules and in turn that means I can’t take the risk. Actually flouted a few times those rules. Don’t get me started on how. The government in its wisdom didn’t consider people like me. So on it goes.

The risk for my kids who won’t now be able to come here and that makes me sad inside. I’m at risk daily and I can accept that. But I can’t accept that my children are so close but feel so far away.

Technology is ok, it has its uses and ya da ya da ya da. Ultimately I’ve learnt that the most important thing for me is to stand in the same room with my family. Nothing else is important. Everything else feels superfluous and meaningless.

So I’m sad inside but also very angry. Angry that people are so selfish and self important and don’t think of others.

I’m angry that the world is right now behaving like a cesspool of hate and people have lost their minds. I’m angry that while I stand here feeling this, the world is behaving like it always has.

People kid themselves with all their self gratuitous statements and trying to be noticed and relevant.

The protests and the violence at a time we are meant to be united disgusts me. The hatred spread through Facebook and other social media’s like a silent virus, branching out and grabbing people along its way.

People victimising and bullying and accusing.

What has the world become? Unity lasted how long? We united because of a disease and then suddenly one police officer changed the world.

The people who have used that moment to gain social media fame and presence disgust me.

The irrelevant models, actors and businesses who exploit it to become someone in a world in turmoil. To behave like parasites using the time to be on stage and feel relevant.

The criminals who loot and commit violence. The people who choose to protest but social distancing becomes irrelevant. No cause is worth that right now. We are supposed to be overcoming something.

I’m tired and worn.

So, as I stand here under the waterfall and my tears fall inside my heart, I know that no one has learnt anything at all.

Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela are the true speakers. They both believed in peaceful protest and the power of what that could convey.

Everyone else? Missed the message.

No matter what way you want to mix it up or kid yourself. No one really knows what they are doing.

That beautiful image this weekend of a BLM protestors who go in and help a racist. That’s human!! Here’s the story Here

Took a risk

Took a risk

So let me tell you.

I broke social distancing this afternoon.

I invited a friend over for a social distancing cup of tea and catch up in my apartment.

I’m contemplating did I do the right thing or did I not?

Short answer yes!! We social distanced none the less.

It’s not viable to impose isolation on human beings especially if they live alone like my friend. Nor frankly in my books is it ok to have a stranger in your home to do the cleaning but not a friend? Figure on that one.

Boris and his tag team came out with that gem! Next time I’ll get her to do my hoovering! How’s that?

Before you go sounding off on your high horse please be aware the only person at risk in this scenario is me. Therefore I made a choice. I chose to accept the risk because I cannot continue to live without taking a few.

I’m a social being in reality when not being a loner. I need interaction and I’m damn glad I had some.

I want to see my children. But I won’t now as I am aware it’s best now I take a few weeks before I risk again.

Let’s be fair how many of you have ?

I’ve lasted around nearly 3 months (I had to self isolate early) and frankly I’d rather stab myself with hot pokers in the eyes than berate myself right now.

I feel happier and will again isolate a few weeks before taking another risk.

So as I sit here contemplating. My Sunday is far more happier and my mind feels good. Maybe this work week will be a better one, despite the knowledge that I can see austerity around the corner. I’m back in the union by the way.

You know me, where there are people to support, I can’t turn my back to that. Old habits die hard.

By the way, don’t I look rather sassy today?

The moment I lay my head

The moment I lay my head

It’s Saturday night in the early hours if Sunday morning and I am just about to fall asleep.

I’ve not much to say because frankly I want to close my eyes and fall into a dream. In the meantime I’ll dance myself to sleep.

Goodnight and enjoy the video.

Eat my fingers

Eat my fingers

This was me earlier today, minus the posh frock and maybe  not a gelato in my hand but more a sandwich.  I was literally near eating my fingers!

I had to have fasting blood tests this morning and seriously I am an idiot. I accepted an appointment at 10:50  without considering  how long that would mean no cups of tea and no breakfast!!! By 10:50am in the morning usually  I have already had a banana, bowl of porridge and two cups of tea and and…Ok maybe I exaggerate on the ands.

Suffice to say it put me in a weird mood all day because my routine shifted.

I tell you as I get older I am becoming one of “those” people, the ones who live by routine.  OMG have I lost spontaneity?

Anyhow all over the news is Meghan and Harry. Wow some people think their opinions are so important. Fact  it is 2020 and if they want to strike out on their own, to raise a happy family and live a life of less chaos.  Let them.

Life is too short to not do what makes you happy and I wholeheartedly think go find happiness.  Amazing how many opinions I’m seeing on the subject blaming the woman for controlling the man into finding happiness. Harry doesn’t strike me as someone who is forced to do anything. They’re a married couple and both want what’s best for each other.

Go fly and be free!

Whats a matter

Whats a matter

Man I have had no sleep at all.

I’m due to get up 20 minutes ago but I cannot extract myself from this horizontal position.

It’s Friday and that’s a worthwhile reason to leap out of bed.

Unfortunately I cannot leap. Hence lack of sleep as my back just seriously didn’t want me to.

So I’ll just slowly get up and start the day.

Happy Friday everyone.

Celebrating friends both virtual and real

Celebrating friends both virtual and real

Last night I had a lovely evening with my two good friends Annette and Carol.

We regularly get together and have something to eat and either put the world to rights or gossip about whatever each of us has to share.

We are three women with strong voices and if you were an observer in the corner you would be hard pressed to keep up with us and know what we are talking about.

We are like a busy intersection on one of the worlds busiest roads. We talk non stop from the minute we see each other until the minute we say goodbye again. Talking at great speed to fit it all in, until the next time we see each other.

This is what friends is about. You can go weeks without seeing each other and then when you do, it’s like that fast moving train, transference of information, and then it’s outta here again.

I have a few friends in my life that I look at like that and call them real friends both in reality and virtual life.

We don’t live in each other’s lives every day, but when needed are there for each other to listen and talk to. To hug and be hugged by.

Don’t ever forget those people in your lives. We can have hundreds of acquaintances who are “friends” on our social media’s etc.

But the reality of it, the real true friends are those that we can count on our fingers to be there when we most need them. The ones that listen when we need to talk, don’t judge and just are there to lift you back up.

Thank you to my friends both in reality and in the virtual world who have become friends.

Time disappearing

Time disappearing

I’m currently munching away on a toasted bagel and a banana.

This seems to be my routine snack of choice these days.

I was previously never big on bagels but since working from home I have found I prefer them to bread and they’re the ideal filler. Don’t forget the cup of tea.

I am rambling I know. It’s Saturday evening , I’m exhausted.

Not only is it the weekend, but I have in fact 9 days of no work.

Some might say because I work from home, what difference is it.

Well let me tell you. The difference is I allow myself to switch right off. During the normal week I don’t ever really switch off because people contact me at the oddest times for advice. I tend to answer. Bit of a habit.

Anyhow does anyone else eat sliced banana on their bagels?

Have you tried peanut butter and banana?

Don’t knock it till you do!

Oh and in case you haven’t aligned your Chakra, let Beverley help you
