The Garden Plan

I had such plans for my garden this summer. I got some of it done. I build a new fence around the back, painted it and even nailed up a few garden art  on the fence too. I bought wood and cut it to the sizes I needed, painted them  and set them in the spot I needed them for. My plan was to build raised flower beds. Soil, plants  and  climbers all bought and sat in the place I wanted to have them. That is when it all stopped. When I had the weather to work at this I didnt get the time. When I got the  time it rained to heavy to work in it. It is the last day in August and I still never got my summer plants in the ground. I got fed-up with it all today and while taking the bins out for the morning I scooped up everything and binned it. Then stuck the wood and soil up the back of the shed. So my garden is sad again but not as sad as I am. Each year is the same, I keep trying to get this done but after 9 years and only getting this far I am giving up. Oh well, at least I can look pretty and enjoy the gardens in SL.

It's A GENRE Thing

Have you been over to Genre yet ? Burlesque has to be one of the best round, all frills, knickers and corsets. If you look past that there are other things that will work daily outside of this theme. This skin for example. Lumae has it out at Genre at the minute and it covers all mesh bodies, mesh heads and those who would rather stick to system skins. They have poses over there too, I have used this one from Black Tulip. Remember everything in Genre is 100L or less.

Space Cadet

Some of us oldies will remember starting school in the 70s, for me it was 1975. I remember one of the things we got asked was, 'what do you think the world will be like in 2020'. For some reason everything was space ships and silver. While visiting mum in hospital today it was being joked about with myself, husband (5 years older) and brother (2 years older) and they remembered the same thing in school and the draw it the same way. Funny now we are only a few years from 2020 and nothing much is different yet everything is. Yes we have mobile phones that carry so much  info it has our whole lives on there. We have the Internet  and yes I remember a life without it, please don't ask me to cope without it now though.The houses though are still pretty much the same other than en-suites. 
I wonder what the answer is from kids today if they got asked 'What do you think the world will be like in 50 years time?'

Oh What A Night

I was looking at flickr and seem some folk had been to prom in SL. On one hand it looks fun and a great way to meet new people. Then again, the lag and little groups ca make it hard for an outsider to be part of it all. Just like in RL I rather be alone. In SL I take pics, blog, work as CSR for a store and help people when they need it. In RL I play with my dog, read and when at all possible grab some alone time. Not always easy when I am a carer for 2 people 24/7

Kiss My Sass !

Some days I want to take a picture and I know what I want to do, what I want to wear and the sim I want to go on - today was not one of those days. Then I visited The Yorkshire Dales and seen the sign and  a plan cam together.

Look Behind You

My head is really scatty. Last blog post was all summer and bright and now its like something from Autumn. Wonder if I can find a snow sim . I am also loving this LAQ head more - Trinity was updated with more emotions to it. I find them more natural that some others. I am glad this  released, because there are so many heads  being made that if I hadn't found one I love I might have been a mesh head addict by now

I Want Summer Fun Again

I have family living in different parts around America. I was a baby when they moved but they come over to see family around once every other year, if not more. When  I was single I travelled around visiting them many times. The one place I loved best was Wilmington North Caroline. My brother is going over for a few weeks and to go to a family wedding and I wish I was going too. There is talk of him checking out the place to maybe move there, all our cousins are encouraging him to do it and I agree it wold be a brilliant thing for him. I am jealous though, I know I will never get that chance again. The best I can do is visit beach sims in SL, So that long ramble explains why I took this picture wearing wonderful summery stuff.
