Shopping Trip

I love a good shopping trip, both in RL and SL. I have to be in the mood for it, but get me going and …. well, the blood gets pumping!

Inworld I tend to shop at events, although I’m trying to get to mainstores more. In fact, if you have time today check out the Gothic Garage Sale, which has just started and runs to the 3rd February. Everything is at least 50% reduced and there’s also a 5L hunt (check out my hair, hint hint).

In RL my shopping habits have changed and I mostly shop online now. I feel sad for my local high street because I’m that shopper that should be attracted back into their shops but I enjoy the convenience of shopping online too much. The only time I’ll pop into a store is to buy jeans and trousers because, well, ladies….you all know how flipping hard it is to find a decent pair that fits!

On that note, I’m going to take advantage of my peaceful Sunday morning and get a little more shopping done. I hope you all have lovely weekends ❤

I dislike January. Strongly. It never used to bother me, but I find that as I become older (and wiser) I realise that January is one of those months I just can’t wait to get through. Thankfully it always goes by quickly; that’s it’s one saving grace. I can’t wait for warmer days, more sunshine in the evenings and that general feeling of “chill” that seems to seep into my soul as I walk home on a Friday afternoon listening to my favourite tunes. Bring it on!

A lovely lady I know has recently resurrected a group inworld designed for members to chat, teleport to new places and generally have fun. A Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, if you will. I love the idea for two reasons: it’s a chance to meet people and explore new destinations in SL. I’ve been around for 11 years now (12 in February…don’t judge) and it’s very easy the older you get, to just stick with your favourite haunts and talk with the same people. I’m hoping by putting myself out more, I might discover something new and exciting this year….aaaaand then crawl back into my little hole and hide. LOL! We are creatures of habit, after all.

If you’d like to know more about the group inworld, pop me an IM. I’m always happy to chat and it’s fab to meet like minded people. Until then, be good…or if you can’t be good, be very good at the mischief you make 😉

You wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but this post was supposed to look cute when I first started. Then, well, who knows what happened? Somewhere between the devil horns, the clamps and a bit of rum on a Friday night, my innocent little self turned into this madam! I have been falsely accused of being a Corrupter. I can assure you it’s not the case! If anything, I’m a corruptee. An Innocent led astray. After all, who can call me a corrupter when all I do is enjoy a little gin, a little knitting and some….other activities….from time to time 😉

Congratulations people, give yourselves a pat on the back. You survived the week. Yes…you gorgeous people! YOU! YOU DID IT!! ……..

This is exactly what I was thinking as I finished my working week ….ohhhh…… 7 hours ago now. This first week back has been brutal. Some would say it’s self inflicted. I prefer to think of it like ripping off a plaster: a short amount of intense pain for the long term benefit (in this case, I had two weeks off at Christmas).

Do I have any regrets? Right now…yes! lol! Will I probably do this again? Probably LOL! Who knows what this year will bring in RL, but so far in SL, there’s been a few surprises. It’s definitely going to be an interesting one!

Don’t threaten me with a good time.

I am tired. Incredibly tired. As one of my managers at work told me….well, that’ll teach you to plan two weeks off and come back to three heavy workload days on the trot. Yes, she’s right. Yes, I’m exhausted. No, I don’t need reminding. My Christmas break seems so long ago now. I just want to sleep some more. So if one more person attempts some humour about my packed week today I may very well use this knife on them…and then go home for a nap…zzzzzzz

Sunday coffee

For me that is just what a Sunday is supposed to be. Getting up when you feel rested, grabbing a drink and lazily wandering wherever you want to go. It might be catching up with friends; it could be shopping. It might be a trip to the movies or Netflix on the couch. Whatever your Sunday will turn into, I hope it’s relaxing and filled with your favourite little things…before Monday drags us all back to reality.

Piglets and Icicles

Semi naked piglets and cold weather definitely do not mix, as evidenced by my little companion today. We humans can snuggle down and layer up but my little buddy…well he’s completely dependent on the warmth my arm is providing and right now, that isn’t much! At least we can nip indoors for a mug of hot cocoa…..as long as I can remember where I left my keys >.<
