Know Your Worth


A woman that knows her
worth doesn't measure
herself against another
woman, but stands
strong, calm and 
self confident

The Game

I can not play Chess, can you ? My husband plays on line with dad  and I have watched and tried to learn, but, well, it takes so long.  I have no patience. I want things done now, games played now. The idea of sitting for ages working on moves, and then waiting for the other person to do the same  isn't a game to me, that is torture. I wonder if a little SL magic could help !

I Am.....

I am a woman
I house electricity
between my temples
and lightening 
between my thighs.
I carry hearts in the
palms of my hands, and
I nurse bedridden hops
into robust truths.
I harbour my strengths
in my belly and
I nourish it like I 
would an unborn child

And I am Back....Sorta

Some of you know but for others who don't. My little dog was rush in for an operation. We thought she had put on weight and as she has only 3 legs that is not good. So we changed her food and tried to do things that would help her more but the weight kept going on. Then one morning my husband went to lift her and she, yelped. We rushed her to the vets as this is so not her to complain about anything. Turned out the weight was a growth and she was very ill. Friday to Tuesday (the day of her operation) felt like it went on forever. I slept on the floor beside her bed just in case anything went wrong. When I handed her over there was a high risk of it being so bad  they just wouldn't wake her up. Anyway - we got her home last night and she is recovering well though not out of the woods yet. The growth was 6 pounds and attached to her spleen, both got removed. No other organs effected.
She well get a check-up in a week and hoping the stitches get removed. So that was why I stopped blogging and stopped everything really. Nothing was more important than her.

How Is Your Day ?

So I have this afternoon off and  I am trying to get caught up  with laundry, just not looking this cute in RL. I really should be doing other stuff around the house but I also need to catch up on blogging and well, I enjoy this more. I think my dust bunny killed my cleaning fairy !

The Elegance of Loneliness - Playing SL with a Mental Health Issue

Staring - ZenCho Balhaus
When Beuanna kindly invited me to be a guest blogger for her, I was incredibly touched, because truthfully I feel the pictures I take and the looks I create weren't good enough for her blog. I have to say I have been humbled by the feedback I have received. As I said before on my intro post, a while back, I take pictures in SL cos I have a few mental health issues, and its a distraction for me. But I thought I would share with you, some of the daily struggles I have in being in a virtual environment, with mental health issues. I titled this post The Elegance of Loneliness, for two reasons. Firstly because my Avie is wearing a Beautiful Gown, that I purchased at Fantasy Faire, its the special colour that is raising funds for Relay for Life. Also to try and express, how hard it is even in a virtual environment, for me to interact with folk. I am lucky in SL to have a handful of good friends, who have stuck by me since the beginning, Beuanna and Aash Writer being probably the most important. I met Beu  at a place in SL called DollyRocks, and Aash I met when i went to a place called SubZero. In SL if a person talks to me first , I can usually cope and chat, but I am a hopeless typist and the more typos i make the more flustered I get. I am not one for jumping into a conversation or getting in peoples IM's that often, as I find it scary. My mental health issues, mean I can be quite blunt, and also the filter between my mouth and brain isn't that great, and I can say things that people take the wrong way. So mostly I stay quiet and just observe, which makes folk think, i am stand offish or stuck up. Second Life is amazing, as it has enabled me to interact with folk all over the world, from the comfort of my sitting room, I just with I didn't find it so hard sometimes. I hope this small ramble gives an insight into me and my issues, I am not fishing for sympathy just trying to explain.

Favourite Place



Staring - ZenCho Balhaus

In Second Life one of the things I like to do is explore the amazing and beautiful Sims, that are created by the talented folk in SL. One of these favourites, is Japan Tempura Island, this place holds many magical memories for me, from spending an afternoon there with a dear friend early in my SL time, and being totally in awe, to a few years back, having a romantic Valentine's day date in the Ballroom. Its still a place I visit, especially if I am rocking one of my fantasy looks, as it is still a place that inspires me when I take pictures. If you haven't visited this Sim i urge you to have a look round, yes it can be a bit laggy, but most popular SL places are. I hope to share a few more of my favourite SL places with you in the near future.

I Bought Pink !

It is rare that I wear pink, I have to really like the thing before I would ever bother and even then it is rare. So let me tell you my dirty little secret, I bought a pair of pink trousers in RL. I didn't mean to, I tried on the navy pair and they fitted so well. I went looking to see what others colours they made them in and I lifted what I thought was more natural in the store lighting. When I got them home my husband burst out laughing but I did wear them anyway. They are nice on and a few people said as much, it is just strange  for me.

Fantasy

Staring - ZenCho Balhaus
In Second Life one of my most favourite events has commenced, Yes once again Fantasy Faire is filling the grid with the most amazing pretties going, whilst raising funds for Relay For Life. Even if you don't like fantasy stuff in SL, I urge you to go along and just be amazed by the Sims that have been created for this event, I am in total awe and i have only wandered two sims so far. This year for me this stunning skin, which is a collaboration between the Plastik and [][]Trap[][] made me super happy, I may have to look at selling body parts or organs, so I can go back and get another shade(lol).

Stand Up And Be Proud

There is a forgotten, nay almost forbidden word,
 which means more to me than any other. 
That word is England.
                                                                                 Sir Winston Churchill

I am not English but I am British and I will forever cheer the other parts of this amazing country.
