Celebrate with Wine

Not that I’m biased of course, I’m more a gin girl. Make it a large one with plenty of ice and a wedge of lime 😉

As I write this, 2019 has come to an end and 2020 begins. A lot of people talk about New Year, New Resolutions. Why not talk about Continuations? Continue to try. Continue to be a good person. Continue to see the best in people. Continue to have faith. Maybe it’s more important to continue on the journey you’re already on, rather than start afresh. Who knows? I have many good intentions at the start of each year and then by March they languish *coughs and hides my gym membership card*

Ahhh well my lovelies. Thank YOU for sticking with me through 2019 and let’s hope that 2020 is a positive one for all ❤

So many cocktails.

This time next week I’ll be on vacation. It’s needed, very much needed. I’m not sure where time is going this year but it’s speeding up and I want some back. Before we know it, I’ll be hitting a “big” year birthday and I’m not ready for it. I’m still 35 in my head! One thing we often do on holiday is splash out on the all-inc drinks package. Don’t judge me. I’m not a *heavy* drinker at all. I love the convenience and the variety of cocktails I can drink on the package. So many cocktails. While I’m dreading the thought of packing, the thought of being pampered for nine days is motivating stuff! So, if I go quiet for a little while don’t worry. I’ll be back – tanned and with some weight to lose, but who’s counting? It’s worth it!

Did I mention the time…..

I always love a story that starts with this sort of title because you just *know* it’s going to be a good one. Whether you imagine their noses growing as they spin a yarn or you just fall about laughing at the situation, it doesn’t matter. It’s going to be fascinating. I had a similar experience a little while back with a friend. He started, with the above sentence but ended it with this:

“Did I mention the time I raced the Princess of Monaco across the Gobi in a tuk tuk, obviously I won.”

Now, I have no idea if this friend had consumed a tipple or three that evening, but I know one thing. I was left with my jaw hanging open, a laugh escaping my lips and an incredible desire to hear more. These are the moments I cherish about SecondLife. People I’d never meet in my every day life, sharing extraordinary moments and creating unforgettable memories. Love it ❤

To Anywhere!

My little buddy and I fancy a road trip this weekend – to anywhere! Truth be told, we’re coming up to a heavy couple of weeks in rl and the thought makes me want to shrink and hide. So pixel road trip, here we come! I might use my new lift to head to an event this weekend or check out a sale room or two. Or, I might just demand the driver takes my buddy and I to the nearest bar so we can have a drink or three. Who knows? That’s part of the fun 😀

Sweet Love

Anyone who knows me knows by now I have a sweet tooth. Even when I try to be good, tempt me with confectionery and I’ll usually succumb. Chocolate, candy, cakes…(that’s a mouthful in itself)…and I can hear my hormones screaming “give it to meee!” I try self control and only partially succeed. Needless to say, I’m in a candy pink mood today and this tray of goodies has my name written all over it ❤

Surrender

Now all the shapes I know are gone
Charts and maps I’ve drawn just get me lost
And I’m falling off the edge
And you make me want to change with the look on your face
‘Cause I miss you, babe
But I can’t stay
Not one more kiss
Not one more fix
Not one more minute
One more night
So I surrender (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
This is the moment I surrender (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
Even now, let it in (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
Oh Lord, I surrender (I still believe, I can’t stay)
(I’m still here)
I’ll still try to keep my distance (hold on and reappear)
Keep my distance (I’m still here, I’m still here)
When I speak will you listen?
So send me back a thousand days
That first night at your old place
And tell me how it ends
I’d do it all again
For one more minute, one more night
If all that I could ever be
If all that I could ever be
Was the best ex-lover of your life

If all that I could ever be
If all that I could ever be
Was the best ex-lover of your life

Wait For you <3

I had the absolute pleasure of seeing these guys live last week; I even got my photo taken with the band after the gig! So, let me indulge for a moment and share my favourite song from their album. Bittersweet lyrics, but worth the wait.
