Bright Christmas

I am having fun with all the  amazing stuff out right now. Christmas is so bright and fun after the darkness of Halloween items. Though wait and see, you will see me moaning about so much red and green and bright and I will be longing for the softness of Spring. I am always moaning about something.

Gorgeous

Gorgeous is your skin.
Gorgeous is your smile.

Its bloody raining again

The weather is minging in the UK, storm  blowing, rain beating down. Then some cheery ad comes on telly singing 'its beginning to look alot like Christmas' So I looked out the window and thought' like heck it is - then pulled the curtains to hide. 
While I am rambling let me tell you about this new pose store. They have just started and has stuff out at Pose Fair. They will get their main store open soon,so keep and eye and I will pose a link when it happens. The creator is a friend of mine, she is a fussy sort at making pictures in SL and they are always stunning and so far her poses reflect that. I am expecting  all new poses to be as good, if not better. We are nothing in SL without great pose makers.

Difference between love and friendship ?

Love is like cake.
It is sweet and fun to make.
Friendship is like meat and potatoes.
It is better for you and worth the wait.
Though the words above are amusing, they are not true. Just as a toxic friendship can be damaging, a truth and real love can be amazing. Make sure you get them in the right order in SL as much as RL

Old Fashioned Christmas

We all seem to pull out traditions at this time of year. Things need to look and be done a set way or the whole thing is spoilt. From putting up the tree to buying gifts. Then comes what goes on the dinner plate and what happens after. Some go to midnight mass, others to church on Christmas morning. Some go out the the pub with friends and others will collapse on the chair at home and watch  telly, enjoying the time to relax and breathe before the kid wake up and go nuts at all the gifts. Everyone has their own thing they like to happen. Whatever goes on over this next few weeks, have fun, don't stress, don't over spend that you  pile it on  credit cards. Keep safe and enjoy the time. If it doesn't go as planned, what does it matter so long as you are happy, food in your belly and a roof over your head.

Get on your bike......

So many sims so little time. I keep seeing notices telling me the sim has had a makeover. I started to make a list to remind me but I  kept forgetting to update it. I am on  Missing Melody today. No matter when this sim gets a makeover it is always stunning. I keep thinking ''this is the best yet'' then they do it for the next season/holiday and it gets even better. Get of that platform and go visit these places, they will inspire you to take pictures.If you can,  drop a a little in the tip jars most open sims have dotted around. It costs to have these places and also to keep buying stuff to landscape them. I for one are so grateful.

You

When it started snowing,
I thought about you.
I don't think it was just a
pure coincidence.

Tomorrow doesn't look like it will be different either.

I just can be assed today,  like that most days lately - feels like it is the new normal. I should be cleaning the house but I just can not be bothered. There are things in SL that needs  an eye kept on but I don't want to 'people' today.  You ever get days like that ? Happens to many in the new year when the lights are down and parties all over, then the bills roll in.  Think I will just sleep my way past today and ignore everything and everyone.  Reading over this I sound like a right moaner - someone needs to kick my ass hard  lol.

Get that decor up

Have you decorated yet ? I have in RL but not in SL, To many cool things I keep putting  them out and then buying more and changing. In both lives, I adore how people can  set things up  in theme. with a base colour. It looks so up market and amazing. Me ? I am a mix of everything. We do that in life, buy things each year and add to what is already there. So this is me with some of my things set out from different places. I need to get the house sorted in SL just as I have in RL. A little bit of everything mixed up and feeling like home.

Last Christmas I gave you my heart......

In the moments you turn around
And catch me staring at you, wide eyed,
Know that I’m drinking you up.
Carefully filing everything you do in my memory
So I can pull it out
On lonely walks in the park and down the street,
So I can think of you
On cold nights laying in bed.
I want to remember
Every second.

What if......



What if every little thought
That lives inside your head
Instead of hiding away in there
Was spoken out, was said?

Would you be embarrassed?
Would you hate your mouth?
Would you rather be mute
Than let the truth come out?

What if every little thing
That people thought of you
Instead of being tucked away
Was heard, was listened to?

Would you be ashamed?
Would you cover your ears?
Would you rather be deaf
Than let the truth come near?

And what if every image
That passes through your thoughts
Was freed from its prison
To roam until it rots?

Would you be disgusted?
Would you look away?
Would you rather be blind
Than see your thoughts at play?

Bloody Shopping for bloody Christmas

This online shopping crap is hateful to me. I love hunting around stores and the joy carrying all the bags home. This year poor health means it has to be done online. 3am in PJs and a cuppa  getting more things ordered because I can't sleep is not fun to me. Needs must I guess. I am having fun getting stuff in SL though. At least I can run around the stores there and still be in PJs and a cuppa beside me.

If only you could see

If only you could see past the fake smile and pretty clothes, hair all done and make up on. If only you could see the soul, the deepest thoughts, what the person says to themselves. What crap life has dragged them through. What pain and struggle they are trying to survive. Would you still be their friend or are you to fickle to stick around.  If only you could see - then what would you do.

Sad

I used to love sadness.
 The comfort it brought me,
 it was so convenient 
that I got addicted by it.

Getting ready

I have done the unthinkable this year - at least for me. I have done some shopping online for gifts. I don't need to get alot but with a sick hubby and so much running to hospitals it has been hard to do anything else. To get things in time so I can add a card and get posted I had to do it. I do hate online shopping though. Yes it is easy to sit on PJs in the middle of the night and order but so much else gets lost. The social side of shopping, getting out and around people. Looking someone in the eye and smiling a friendly smile.  The exercises of walking around the stores and carrying all the stuff. The mental health side of getting out of the house, interacting and feeling better. Keeping track of what is being spent, to easy to click online. but handing over the money in a shop you know what you are spending. Even our stores, they are closing because we are not using them. The jobs being lost. There is a knock on effect to the areas as these things are lost. So please, Don't be me, get out there and get shopping local. Remember small businesses too.

Nothing


I'm tired waiting for weeks
Just for you to reply to me.
I know you're not that busy.
I think you just, don't want me.
I mean nothing to you,
As I treat you my everything.
Let's be fair.
I am nothing to you,
And you mean nothing to me.

The Room

Remember I blogged a house, was a few posts ago. I said then I would do a few more pictures using the inside of this build to let you see it more. Well this is part of the inside. I do live the different textures on the wall. Plain enough to add your own style to it yet it gives a cosy feel even before any furniture is placed. 
I like how this build give space layout living spaces. Not closed off into a many rooms but not just one big open space of nothing either - they created a nice balance. Get over and take a walk around it and you will see what I mean.

Oh wouldn't it be love-r-ly

Wouldn't it be lovely to have a place like this to sit in the evenings. The heat of the fire would deal with the Autumn chill so the season changes outside could be seen and enjoyed. Never under estimate the need for good planting, it can make or break the over all look.
