Kangaroo Island

Not many people know this, but I lived in Australia as a kid for three years. We lived in Adelaide and spent our school holidays driving around the country by my parents in this bronze camper style van. At the time, I grumbled and wanted to be holidaying somewhere tropical. Now I am thankful that my parents helped provide me with some amazing memories. One of the places we visited was Kangaroo Island and to say that this place is a wildlife haven is justified. Although, part of me should type “was” because of the horrific wildfires that have been ravaging the country, but I purposely type “is” because I believe that Australia will overcome and survive. We must hold on to the positive and not lose hope.

One of our SL creators, Kay Weston of Image Essentials, is helping organise an inworld benefit this weekend to help raise funds for the Australian RSPCA. This pose is on sale at the store (landmark below) with 100% sales going to support the charity. I love how SL residents come together as a community to support many RL charities. This is one example of people going above and beyond. I hope you’ll support it too x

The Garden

Sadly, as I sit and write this, my garden is nowhere near as appealing or warm as this scene. In my mind it’s still summer and I could easily curl up on this daybed and read a book, a cup of tea nearby. I know it’s Summer in the Southern Hemisphere but up North, I want it back! I guess that’s the thing with the seasons though; the wait is worth it ❤

Wow, I can’t believe it’s August already! I’m not one to intentionally wish my life away, but the days drag, the working weeks fly and here we are. Soon, it’ll be December and I’ll be wondering where my life is going. There’s a quote I used with my RL recently “as children time drags but the older we get, the quicker time moves.” I also warned him we were wishing our lives away praying for the weekends. He laughed, but agreed with me. Smart man! So, what’s the purpose of this rambling? I guess it’s to simply state: enjoy today. Make the most of it. So that’s what I will do, in this August sunshine 🙂

Nightmare in New Orleans

Nightmare in New Orleans is the latest interactive game on offering from Madpea Productions, and as you’d expect, it’s full of thrills and spills. The level of detail throughout the game is very high quality and the puzzles had me swearing early on!

You will need to purchase a hud at the opening point of the game and there is also a gacha available with prizes that will help solve the puzzles quicker. Thankfully the hud saves your last location, so if you need to take a breather and go back, you can.

As with all Madpea adventures, the VIP group is available to offer help and support. More information is also available on the website HERE. I don’t want to give any more information away apart from the sneak pics above….and they’re just a little teaser for you.

Good luck and enjoy!

Starting point for Nightmare in New Orleans is HERE.
