Burn!

It burns
when you touch,
It's sad
when you talk,
It's sour
when you kiss,
It's hurts
because you lie.

Whatever

Stop worrying if people like you or not. Spend that time learning how to like yourself, faults and all. To accept your mistakes. Forgive yourself because you acted in the moment with the information you had then. Learn how to love YOU. Then, those who are around you are the people who are meant to be there, not the people who are using you, abusing you, don't care what happens to you.

Add some colour to your SLife

I love colour, Should it be SL or RL I need bright colour around me. The idea of living with white everything would be  madness to me. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing all the decor pictures of stunning shades off white and light grey. If I tried that it would all blend into one mess of nothing. Maybe that is why I felt happy while setting up for this picture. Just doing it made me happier.

Still so strong

Even now, as broken as you may feel, you are still so strong.
There's something to be said for how you hold yourself together and keep moving,
even though you feel like shattering.
Don't stop. This is your healing.
It doesn't have to be pretty or graceful.
You just have to keep going.

Say CHEESE!!!!!

When people take pictures often they yell,  ''say cheese'. I remember on my wedding day, when pictures started to get taken the guy yelled ''say whiskey''  and then, out the blue yelled ''say knickers!'' My bridesmaid and I fell about laughing, he caught one of my favourite pictures at that point. Almost 20 years later and her and I still share that joke.

Waiting for you ....

Making this picture reminded me off a story a friend told me when she was first married. 
It was about 30 years ago, she was a little barbie type girl and played up to that idea. She was off work one day and decided to get all romantic so she  did her hair and make-up, then put on new lingerie. Had the stocking,  basque and 3 inch heel shoes. When it came near the time for her new husband to arrive home, she go on the fluffy white rug by the open fire. As she heard the key in the door she posed herself just as she seen in  romantic movies. In walked her husband with a mate from work carrying a takeaway for them all. I laughed so hard the next day when she told me all about it, as she fluffed around the staff room, hands waving around  telling the story. 
So if you ever wait for your partner to come home like this, make sure you peek outside and check they are on their own first !.

Indoor - Outdoor

Days like today I would love to sit outside. To create a living space in the garden and relax. My area is so built up that to sit outside without the window from a house overlooking the garden is impossible. I just have to create that space in SL and chill.

Who's the daddy !

I went down the Zooby baby rabbit hole and I blame  Granny Magnolia Wrigglesworth on it all.  I have never had any interest in  role playing the family thing in SL. To run around as a kid and call someone mummy. At times a few have posted their kid avatar picture and I think I might do it too but its never went past that one thought. The baby thing came out a while ago and I never even  went to demo - just never been interested. A few bought the new Zooby baby and still I wasn't interested, then Granny started. She shared a picture of her with a baby and all the chatter, I ended up in the store and before I knew it I had bought one. 
So now how do I feel about it all. It is very cute, so well made and if you read the instructions it is easy to use - so don't be like me, read the instructions. It costly though, so be warned before you even start this. After I got the baby I found out about needing to buy food, nappies, soap etc... and these need  to be used every 24 hours to reach the level to get a token. Then I can redeem the tokens collected for a toy. So there is a big enough layout to play along with this. Also, if you want to change clothes, you need to buy a wardrobe. Then buy the texture, I bought the body  and then I bought this texture so the baby could wear this. I haven't got into the rest of  clothes stuff yet.
Something I didn't expect was the feeling this brought up - it all started with picking a name.
I don't have any children in RL, I tried for over 10 years. That is something I never brought into SL because I never needed  or wanted to. I have  seen the debate from people who are the same so created a family in SL, I just never felt the need. I am not in a relationship in SL, never have been, never will be. I am married in RL and while it fits others, it doesn't fit me to split the RL/SL  partner thing.  
When I needed to give this baby a name, all the ones I have thought off in RL came into my head, I stared at this thing for a while. I couldn't give it any of those names, I couldn't decide if it was a boy or girl.I ended up with a gender-neutral name and as you can see the clothing item is the same. The cot, changing table, bath and wardrobe are all the same. Maybe at some  stage I will move on more with this but for now it is a baby, not a boy, not a girl.
If you have the money and some time, it can be a fun thing to own and play around with though.

That Girl


I'm the girl who hides behind a smile every day.
I'm the girl who has a tough exterior,
But that's not who I really am.
I'm the girl who has a lot of problems
But doesn't share one thing.
I'm the girl who keeps everything bottled up.
Sometimes I just need someone to talk to. 
Someone to care about me.
Someone to listen to my problems.
Someone to hold me when I cry.
Someone to love me.
Nobody knows the real me.
Nobody knows what I go through every day.
Nobody knows what I have to do just to make it through the day.
Nobody knows that I'm the girl who isn't who I say I am.
And I'm the girl who will cry herself to sleep every night.

All or Nothing

I don't know what living 
a balanced life  feels like.
When I am sad, I don't cry, I pour.
When I am happy, I don't smile, I glow.
When I am angry, I don't yell, I burn.
The good thing about feeling in  extremes is, 
when I love, I give them wings, 
but perhaps that isn't such a good thing.
'Cause they always tend to leave
and you should see me when my heart is broken.
I don't grieve, 
I shatter

Nailed it

My picture is about something I have never ever done in RL - that is getting my nails done. Do you get your nailed shaped and painted or  do you  get nailed added over your own. Part of me has started to wonder about getting mine done but they would get in the way

I thought it was cute

I don't really have anything smart to say in this post. I just wanted to blog this dress because I thought it was so cute. I knew the Ivy head was the best one to wear with it. There was no song that inspired me, I wasn't reading anything to make me think of it. Nothing was on TV that made me want to do this - I just thought it was all so cute.

The payphone days

Kids these days don't know they are born. Do you remember having to phone a friend because it was a matter of life or death, or so we thought. Then your mum or dad refused to let you use the house phone  because the bill had been so high the month before.  Running to the local phone box and hopping it was clean, wiping the receiver before putting it near, but not touching, skin. The 10ps got used up faster than the words would come out and only half the info was given. Then again, my generation did so many things and there is no online poof to get us in bother now.

The pages of a book.

Sometimes it is good to walk away from the PC and get lost in a book. I have struggled for a while now to get back into reading. I have always been a reader from a child, always carried a book, wanted to grow up and work in a library so I could live with books. So it is odd that fora while now I have struggled to even find one that interests me let alone get my mind settled to read it. Thankfully I have found something that I was so interested in knowing more about a person  started to read about their life, written by them. Am I going to tell you which book ? No, that is my book to get lost in, you need to find the one that fits you. It is good to read.

You in your small corner and I in mine

I sat on this chair longer than I should have watching the frogs and tadpoles. It was a stressful day in RL, one that had a panic attack in the middle off it. Chest pains are not fun. I found sitting here watching these help me relax. If that isn't a good reason to buy this stuff and create your own little corner - I don't know what is.
