Without me

Once in thought
I was nonexistent
everything was normal
without me
just the way
it was meant to be.
Erased from
everyone's memory
it was all about only them
nothing affected me.
With minor differences
one chair less
all was good
just the way
it was meant to be
without me.

My friend and I

My friend and I went exploring for a while. I love to sim hop and see what new things are happening. Sometimes I event find old things that for some reason I never knew about before. I have started to take a friend with me now that animesh is a thing. I love walking around  and having a dog jump about  and run with me. There are some amazing sims around and open for us all to visit.

Special memories

My hairdresser was meant to get married a few weeks ago. Each time I got my hair cut she would tell me about her plans. Carriages, entertainers, fireworks, massive country house taken over for the weekend so everyone could stay and party. All cancelled. Must have been heartbreaking - at least at first. After many tears she has come up with a new idea that seems so much more her.
Event when lockdown get easier, it will still be small groups so the massive wedding could never happen this year. So she has been planning a small, more romantic wedding. Rather than just booking the best on offer she has had to take time and think about it more. She has found it more personal to them. Little things that already feels more important and special. 
Family will be there and the rest will zoom in. She cuts my hair but is also my friend. I can not wait to zoom in on the day and see something so much more beautiful than what was planned before.
Maybe some good things will come out of this horrid time

Modern or Traditional

Are you all gadgets and only use the latest thing. Or do you love the way things used to be. I love my PC, there are gadgets I would own if I could afford them but I still love some old things. Mainly books, I adore the smell of a new book. The sound as you open it for the first time, turning the page to find out what comes next.
Even with clothes, I love watching the catwalks to see what is coming, looking at designers collections to see what they are making next season, but I adore vintage. I love the style of it all. I love  modern furniture but I also love vintage. 
If I had loads of money I get the feeling my house would  be a hot mess all mixed up.

Her story wasn't pretty
Nothing fit for fairy tales,
but it as real.
It was life.
It was hers.

My #1 rule on how to pick a dog

I have a simple way to decide what kind of dog to get - never get a dog that poops more than you are willing to lift.  You have to be willing to carry poo bags and clean up after your dog. You must then take that  bag and either find a bin or take it home and put it in the bin.  This is one reason why I adore  Great Danes but will only ever have one in SL and never RL.

New kid in town

I get nervous when people as me if I would  blog something before I ever get a chance to see it. More nervous when it is their first release so I have nothing to go on and no store to go try on demos.
I was 99% sure it would be ok when I heard who the person was behind the brand. I knew she had been working for a few years, learning the craft. 
Now I am 100% excited to see more from this store. You can  try this dress for yourself over at Uber and keep an eye out for more from AVEC TOI.
 Remember to team it up with great skin and hair !

Autopilot


She's underappreciated,
And under rested.
She's overtired,
And overworked
She keeps going and going
But not on her own terms
There’s always something that needs to get done
And it's up to her to do it
What she wants to do
Keeps getting put on hold-
Things that she needs to do
Take a number and wait in line
She feels empty
But yet there's hope
That keeps peeking through
For as long as she has a heart
She can dream
She can escape
She can live

...me!

Claim me...
Pour your dark desires over me.
Command me...
Wield your power to arouse me.
Discipline me...
Make the need to please you overwhelm me.
Possess me...
Let your dominance consume me.

Things were so much easier then..
before the world sank its teeth into her.
Sometimes she longed for those days...

Game of Life

Life is meant to be like a game of Chess. I can't play Chess so maybe that is how  I ended up as I am. Life is more like a game of Snakes and Ladders for me - only problem is I dropped down the biggest snake. I tried to use a ladder to get up again but it fell down and smacked me on the head !

Find Your Peace

When the world gets too loud
for you to hear your own thoughts,
turn it off.
When the violence grows
and the fear bubbles over,
turn it off.
When the pain of a nation
weighs too heavy on your heart,
turn it off.
When your heart starts to race
at the thought of tomorrow,
turn it off.
When the words in the air
grow to heavy to bear,
turn it off.
When your dreams are overtaken
by death and despair,
turn it off.
When it's too hard to find beauty
in this world anymore,
turn it off.
When you have no more strength
to hold up your head,
turn it off.
Find that inner peace.

Lockdown Life

When I see this stuff  it felt right to blog it. Nothing in SL shows how life is in RL right now more than this. Most living in a small (ish) space. Trying to relax, work, keep in touch with friends and family. Needing to exercise  but ending up over eating and laying around reading books.
Some countries are opening up more than others. Whatever your country is doing - stay safe, stay health, wear a  mask and keep washing those hands. We will beat this thing just as we have with any other virus that has  happen, for now, we need to be careful.

Cactus Bar

I love visiting sims and seeing how creative people are setting up  different parts. Walking around streets, I find it interesting how little parts are taken over to create  bars, homes,  diners etc...  So I thought I would have a go at  creating something like this myself. Its a fun process, having to think differently.  Thought I have to say, using items from  a Hideki set did most of the job for me.

Shopping Local

One thing I have found easier than some others is shopping for food at this time. The lines waiting to get into big food halls are so long I don't know how people do it. I have always been one to shop at small local stores. I like a proper butchers, a real fruit & veg store. The personal touch from a small corner store and stopping at a farm shop to buy direct. While nothing is easy for anyone  while coping with lockdown, I have found   my normal routine for food is working out easier than those I have spoken with who go to large stores. 
Shopping local is more important than ever right now. That small store you run to when you need to grab something, if you want to stand a chance of keeping it, then use it more. That money will stay local and help all those around you. We have to do whatever we can to support as much as we can. Only way we will ever survive this.

Who loves to run and play,
Whose tricks and tomfoolery
