Are You Getting Ready ?

The Christmas lights got turned on in my hometown two days ago and today the main city gets theirs turned on. A few people around me have their decorations up already. I don't feel like it all this year but I am going to have to. One thing I always enjoy going to is the Christmas market, I wonder if I will enjoy it this year with such sadness still hanging over me  - 7 weeks today my mum passed away and the pain is still so real. This blog is turning into something so depressing, sorry.

All Shapes

Friends come in all shape and sizes, types and personalities. Not all my friends think and believe the same as me. I love that about them. They challenge me, teach me and keep me more grounded than I would be  if I didn't have them. Strong  feelings and thoughts have been challenged because of the life they have lived and who they are because of it. I hope I do the same for them because I know I am a better person because of them

Just Call Me Mary !

I am with my sheep again. It is because I was talking about Wales  and it reminded me  of how beautiful it was and how I had never seen so many sheep in all my life as I did there. It has been a few years now from I was on holiday there but I loved it. What started it off was it being my 18th wedding anniversary and I had met my husband in Wales and long story short - I got into SL and found some more sheep.
I am totally loving what I have on today, if I was skinny and pretty and had great hair in RL I would wear this.  I promised myself I would not have a bulging inventory this time round in SL  so I delete loads of things often but this I am going to tuck away for my  days in SL when I am just hanging out. Now when I say I delete loads of things after I blog it, this isn't because I don't like the stuff . It is because so many new things are coming out each post needs to be different so it is rare I wear things over and over again. I am not in blogging to get free stuff, I do it because I enjoy it and because if it helps any designer get their things seen then I am glad.
Anyway, let me get listing all the info of these goodies

The Darkness

Are you one of those people who love Halloween and sad it is over ? Well if that is you then get yourself over to The Coven and get shopping. It is all things dark and you will love it. 
Also I  am going to have to show you more close-up pictures so you can see the eyes I have on. These are dark so not so easy to make out but OMG Banana Banshee has outdone herself in this last lot she made. I am madly inlove and think I found some I will be wearing  more often. So keep watching for that.

I Gave The Sheep Names

My sleep pattern is in a mess, I am tired all day until it is bedtime and then my mind races. I tried all sorts of things and nothing is working so far.  Last night around 4am I was willing to try anything. I  even tried counting sheep (I can hear you laughing). The counting turned into naming them and in my head I ended up with a small holding with sheep, a few cows, some goats and a donkey. SO today I remembered about this bed I own, it is more a prop &pose really. Now to get back to naming....I mean counting my sheep.

Never Be You.

Someone will
always be prettier.
Someone will
always be smarter.
Someone will 
always be younger.
Bet they will never
be you.

Should it be in Sl or RL we always look at others and wish we had things they had. I know I have looked over facebook and seen people I used to know and I do not connect with them because I feel like I failed compared to them. They have not walked my road, they have  not faced the problems  I faced. They never had to feel the hurt I felt and they never lived any part of my life. I wonder how different they would look of they had. People show the best of themselves on facebook and other media places most of the time. Others will lie to make things look better than it is. We have no clue what is going on in their heart and we have no idea who they feel when they look at us.
Something I said to others  over and over and I try to remind myself of is this.
Do not stand at your front door looking out at all the things others have and feel sad, rather stand outside your door and look in. Then you will see how blessed you are with a roof over your head, food to eat and a bed to sleep in, you have clothes and heat. You will live a more grateful life when you learn to be you because no one else can do that but you.

It's The Hard-Knock Life

Don't if feel like the wind is always howl'n? 
Don't it seem like there's never any light!
Once a day, don't you wanna throw the towel in? 
It's easier than puttin' up a fight
No one's there when your dreams at night get creepy
No one cares if you grow or if you shrink
Empty belly life
Rotten smelly life
Full of sorrow life
No tomorrow life

Roleplay in SL, something I have never done. I get real jealous of those who do but my head is to practical for it. Should it be the family thing of on a sim like Hobbiton ( I am on in this picture). To play out another life, another time, to get into character  and act it out. Many would say we all do that in SL and to a level they are right. Though I speak to those in SL as I do in RL and I blog on here as I think - maybe that is why it is more a mixed up ramble of nothingness.

Day At The Fair

I love going to the fair. We never really seem to have anything great over here anymore but when I lived in Devon it was fun all summer long. Each time my husband and I drove past I had to stop and get on some of the rides. The bigger the better the more scary  and I was having a ball. This one in SL took me back to childhood when mum and dad used to take us kids and I always got candyfloss. I never knew   back then that mum couldn't always afford it really but so I was happy she would make sure I got some. Trips to the seaside was magical. With  both my parents gone now my mind is going back to those days more than ever.

Simple

FaMESHed had a build last round and people hated it. Well they listened and they changed it and it is  brilliant. So easy to cam around or wander, depending on how you like to shop and it flows well so you don't miss out on any vendors. I picked up this hair, necklace and earrings and popped them on with so stuff from my favourite skin and make-up.

I'm No Gynecologist But ...

So life for me has changed forever and I guess I am partly working through it via blog posts . My mum was my world, she was my best friend and someone I spent every day with caring for years. With her death I have even less time for assholes in my life. You know those so called friends who only know how to get  hold of you when they need something. The ones that want to talk when they have drama going on. The people you cant see for dust when you need some support.
 I had one like that, I met her in SL and  it moved to RL and for 10 years I have been letting her away with shit, I see that now. When others pointed it out I  stood up for her and supported, all the crap and most of it she created herself. Well that one so called friend never  said a single word to me   to see how I was coping so I thought 'screw this I have had enough'. I will help anyone who needs me, I  have known I was being used before but  still stood by people because no one else was there for them and they needed someone. Well no more.
 I piss people off all the time anyway. I put my foot in it all the time without meaning to. I am getting used to the witch hunts on Facebook with the SLers.  Here is something we all need to learn and remind ourselves daily, it is something I am doing more and more  - those who matter know me and know my heart, those who rant and bullshit about me don't matter. Those who are real friends will be there to support when needed and those who only turn up when they needs something need kicked  out of my life.
So learn to spot those who use you and get rid. Watch for those who bring drama with them and avoid. Most important, never let these toxic people drag you down to their level, never become like them. 
Be kind but don't be walked on. Treat others with respect but don't be rude. 
Never look down on others unless you are helping them up.

The Child In Me

I loved the child in him, 
So innocent and sweet, 
The mischief in his eyes, 
The tender way he spoke, 
That showed me that he cared.
The touch of his warm hand, 
That gently touched my hair.
The smiles that were shared, 
That filled my life with glee.
For when i was with him, 
I Found the child in me.
