Colourful Living

I took this picture, was so late last night I decided to wait and blog today. So today I turned on the pic, hit up to clean the disks and stuff and then decided to blog. Then panic set in,  had deleted the picture. Thankfully I had popped it on my screen. It is a habit i have before i blog a picture, I  put it as a screen saver to have a look and see if I still like it. One screen grab later and the blog post is being done.  Its the colour and fun I loved about this picture, to look at and making it. TLC is all about colour  this month, so worth getting over to shop at.Now I am off for a coffee, and maybe a headache pill after that panic.

I sit beside the fire and think ......


I sit beside the fire and think
of all that I have seen
of meadow-flowers and butterflies
in summers that have been;
Of yellow leaves and gossamer
in autumns that there were,
with morning mist and silver sun
and wind upon my hair.
I sit beside the fire and think
of how the world will be
when winter comes without a spring
that I shall ever see.
For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood in every spring
there is a different green.
I sit beside the fire and think
of people long ago
and people who will see a world
that I shall never know.
But all the while I sit and think
of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet
and voices at the door.

I waited for you ....

In the dark of the night
I wait for you to find me
 To bring comfort to my life
To come and save me
As I wait I become cold
Numb inside and out
Being let down is getting old
It fills my head with doubt
Where are you
You promised to come
What did I do
To make you run

In or Out ?

Are you going out tonight or making dinner at home.  Hubby  has been in so much pain of late I thought it safer to make something special and lay the table out nice.So my kitchen is a bigger mess than normal, but worth it. In between things cooking I will try to blog and get caught up. I also need to change my house I have out on my land. I want this kitchen out in my  space I live and not just to blog it. Busy day ahead.

Holding On

and today I realized
that I am the biggest hypocrite
of them all.
 I tell everyone to keep holding on
that there is a light at the end.
That everything gets better as long
as you continue to wait.
I always tell people to have hope.
That they need to keep trying because
it is too early to give up, 
that there have so much to live for
There there is me,
and I am barely holding on

Few Furry Friends

The more I see of people the more  like spending time with my dog in RL. After being sick, have toothache, problems with my skin and then SL stress  - I think today I need cuddles in both lives. So meet a few of my furry friends.
I never planned to collect animals in SL, I only meant to buy a few dogs. Now I have  folders full of all sorts and I still don't feel I have enough.  If I could have a house full of does in RL I would. Though SL is better in some ways. I don't have to clean up after they  poo !.

Feeling. my heart

Taking off
 my clothes
piece by piece,
I turn to you,
unwrap my body,
feel you trace
its contours
with your fingers.
I am accustomed
to covering,
what I now bare,
watch you waken
and wash me
with your eyes.
I feel the cloth
of your skin,
uncovered,
inviting me in,
feel your breath
warm in my ear.
I lean closer
into you, feel
your blood surge
as you hold me
and I echo
the beat pulling
on us as I wrap
my legs around you
and open as morning
glories do
when the sun
warms them.

I might not bring you flowers .....

I am not a red roses kind of girl,   I adore yellow ones. I am not a person who is into the fan fair of one day, I  would rather invest in all my days.  A few balloons given with love means more than expensive roses paid for because they can afford it. Don't see the gift, see the person behind it. Don't see  pound signs, see what it costs that person to give it. Don't see the gift on one named day, see the thought  and love they give you every day.

Small but perfect

Land can cost more than some folk have in SL, Well I have news for you. Get yourself a shipping container and pimp it out. I had fun trying to dress this in a way I liked and still fitted, it easy even more easy than I thought.

The men can chill too

This is more of a male sitting room I guess. It is nice to see the blokes being catered for. Saying that, it is so easy to use different pieces for any mood you want to  create really.  
I don't have much to say - not that I don't like the stuff, I love it.
It has been a tough week so I am just going to get lost in great design

Feed Me !

I am not a romantic person, I love romance but I am not one for planning anything or event coming up with ideas. My husband  is romantic, maybe that is our balance. To be honest I am not even one that wants chocolate.  Packs of crisps and a glass of prosecco  while watching an old movie sounds perfect to me.

The path to true love .....

It is the month of romance and love but did you ever wonder why stories like Cinderella  ended with them getting married !. The path to lust and attraction is a fun, magical yet tragic, heartbreaking time. The path to a deep, true love that can last a lifetime is hard work. It is not always liking the person but knowing that deep down you still love them. It is when passion isn't as much as it was at the beginning, but you feel at comfortable with each others sitting watching TV and not saying a word. Happy ever after is a myth. Even if you have the best education, loads of money  and all the things you think it takes to be happy - life happens. When it happens it hits hard, it hits with pain and trauma. It is in those times, when 2 people cling together that true love grows the most.

It's Okay

I'm not okay, 
but it's okay
I'm smiling and laughing but It's all a game
I'm not okay 
I'll put on a mask 
So everyone else can relax 
But I'm not okay 
I never was. I never will be 
But it's okay 
Don't worry, don't ask me what's wrong
The answer will always be nothing 
Truth is I'm hurting 
Everyone says everyone loves me
Yet I can't learn I love myself
I'm friends to everyone so how come I have no friends of my own?
I spend time
I try 
Keep everyone happy
My life's a lie
They say I'm cheerful
They're all blind 
Truth is I'm not fine 
I'm truly lonely 
I'm not okay,
But i guess it's okay 
There will be a day
It will all fade
Just waiting for the day I'll go away.

I have a plan for us all

The weather is crap for most of us. Either people are so cold it is hard to cope or the heat is making folk melt. Either way I have a plan  for us all. Get a nice corner to find some peace, get a glass of whatever makes you happy and chill. Listen to music, read or just sit and be still. While the weather might making being outside difficult  we call all do with 'ME' time.

The Beauty Of A Woman


The beauty of a woman Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries, Or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman Is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
And the beauty of a woman
With passing years only grows.
                     Audrey Hepburn

Waiting

I'll be waiting.
I may be young or old and gray,
Counting the days,
But I'll be waiting,
And when I finally see you come,
I'll run when I see you--
I'll meet you

It's blogger hard sometimes

Some days ideas fly around and bloggers can't get posting fast enough to get the nice idea in a picture and post. Other times, no matter what amazing stuff we have, it is a battle to get it into a picture that  is worth using. Most days I battle. I see so many talented people around me daily I   have to try and look past it all and do the best that I can. 
Every now and then I see a blogger thinking they are not good enough or a designer wishing they could reach a higher level. Just do the best you can, enjoy the process and keep  working at it and learning. Help yourself by helping others.
