I’m a bit tired, but if I don’t write this right away I know it will join all the other posts I wanted to write and didn’t found the time to do it.

This FL week was not kind to me. More troubles with the IRS Tax guys because of the tax declarations I should have delivered together with my ex-partner. Since he only signed one of the two he had to, and very very recently, I had to pay around 7k euros to the Tax Services. And since he still refuses to reimburse me of the half of the house that we bought together, I even had to face the possibility of selling my own car, which is the only asset I own at the moment (yeaps, he also kept the furniture and all, call me an idiot, I really deserve it, lol).

But then, a old friend offered to borrow some of the money I needed. My darling Petros advanced some more. And even though I will have no Holidays or Christmas fees during the next 3 years or something, at least I hope this is another closed chapter.

Then, with all these things happening (wish it would just all stop once and for all) and my therapist suggesting that I need an urgent break in order to be able to face all these bad news… good things started happening 🙂

In SL, a recent but already very good friend of mine, Dagmar Haiku (who is the adorable tiny elephant fairy godmother in the picture below) encouraged me to take a step I always thought was too far from my poor technical photo skills. More on this one of these days, lol.

When angels turn their back on you

Then, in FL, this amazing colleague of mine dragged me to the theater and to a walk and meditation (while listening to flute and drums) in a nearby mountain – all in the same week! Here’s a small sneak-in of this last event.

Yes, time does fly whenever you’re doing things that fulfill you. And yes, there’s always a friendly hand grabbing yours in times of need.

Not only a bit tired, I feel exhausted and know that I will be in bed really soon. However, I also know that I will fall asleep with a smile on my lips, hope in my heart and very ready to face the two hard working weeks that I have ahead of me. So I raise my eyes to the one who’s keeping an eye on me and say “thank you, from the bottom of my heart – I really needed all this!”

For a couple of weeks already, me and Clio have been playing around with our Plurk names and after some intermediate versions, we ended up as Miss Smart Ass and Miss Cutie Ass – I suppose you will easily guess who was smart enough to get the name that makes most sense (not me, that’s for sure, lol).

After a quite hectic FL these last days (weeks?) I woke up and issued a national decree stating that today is my official national holiday after a series of hard working days and some not-so-good news related to the state of my private finances, hehehehe

So I went in-world about five minutes after I woke up, a warm cup of tea in my hand and had a stroll at the Pose Fair, where I found some cute frames at the aDORKable Poses stand. I uploaded a background, replaced the frame poses by others from (pda) and there I was all set and waiting for Miss Clio :P. Lucky for me, she had been hanging around on her bikini as well and her awesome sense of humour made her join my idea at once. Below, you will find the result of some really FUN moments, hehehehe – exactly the kind of break I was in desperate need, with an added mistery bonus: how come she changed bikinis and I didn’t even noticed ? LOOOOL Look closely, for the second picture was taken by her, while the others I shoot them myself… notice the difference ? hehehehe

Thank you, my dear Ass cousin, for being such a great pal! Hope you enjoy them as well!

One of the reasons I was dying for April to start was to follow the Crazy Arse Hair Hunt. On Easter Friday I suddenly realised that was the H day so I immediately stopped everything I was doing and headed to the Hunt Starting Point. The detailed notecard about this hunt was VERY challenging and specifically mentioned we should not count on “normal hairs”. Also, there would be no hint giving nor a blog on the hunt, just because the hunt items would be all in plain sight and no farer than 20 meters away from the landing point.

Well, some of them were, others not really. The fact that the item was a sphere did not helped much either but anyway I was able to do it in just one day, since there were only 40 stores joining in.

As often with most of the hunts on the first day, some of the items were not yet set up in the stores. Others were not simply set for sale. Because we had no other option than collecting each and every item, each time we got stuck I would send the owner and designer a polite reminder where I asked for their help at least in providing the next landmark so I could proceed – not only me, of course, since with time a small brotherhood of hunters had gathered and we were doing this together.

I had the most pleasant surprise when Rose Columbia from NeVerMind replied to my notecard in the nicest way and promptly offered me her item, thus sparing me the pain of going back to a place I had scanned inch by inch before. Not happy with that, a few moments later I received another IM from her allerting me to another item that was still not set for sale some couple of spots aways… and offering me a notecard with all the landmarks of the involved stores. Gosh, this was like a gift from heaven to me and the half a dozen fellow hunters that were gathering efforts to end this task and totally saved our lives! Each time we came to a place where we faced a problem with the item, I sent a new notecard to the owner/designer and we were able to move on to the next place.

One thing is certain – most of the designers got back to me in the most friendly way and hurried to correct it. Even though this is something we already count with on a first day of a hunt, there being no hint blogs, groups, etc, would make us simply stuck to a place until the owner/designer was kind enough to come along and help us.

The opposite also happened. From another owner of I got a reply that went something like:
[22:24] name deleted: Could we possibly have a better warning of how things are to be run in a more clear notecard for future references to that I don’t need to be spammed out the ass with IMs about a hunt item not being up? Roflmao..

She may have mistaken me with someone connected to the organisation of the hunt. I can easily imagine how annoying it should be to get a zillion notecards about the same matter. She wasn’t probably in one of her best days. Still, I don’t think that’s a suitable way to adress a customer. Next time, I will surely refrain myself from any action – lesson learned. But as far as I am concerned, that’s a shop I will not return to… and oh boy, I had brought home so many demos from there, lol !

Honestly? I think some designers should get themselves some store managers and stick to what they do best ;P

Lucky me I have these oasis in my life. Who here and then offer me some special days – like today.

Funny thing, for years I had a best (girl)friend and then I had a guy I lived with. Then, a series of events made me a bit ceptical about some manifestations of friendship, which changed my whole life completely and turned me into a different person. Nowadays, I rely much more on actions and attitudes than on words. I stopped believe I could encourage people and help them turning into worthy persons. I have accepted people simply don’t change. They are what they are, and one should be VERY cautious and attentive before giving one’s heart away or before offering the “friend” label to anyone.

Today, though, I am able to say that life renews itself. Where once I saw only darkness, sadness and a dead end, I can now notice a path – maybe a hard one, with obstacles yet to overcome, but a way that I am sure leads me to a quiet, peaceful corner in life.

I fell in love with my best friend. Yes, I am aware there’s a popular song telling the exact same thing. This is no song, though. This is my daily life, and a totally new way of experiencing it. Having someone who entirely fulfils my different emotional needs is something uncommon, and had never happened to me before. One may say I am risking too much in placing all the bets on the same number – but that’s how the situation evolved naturally.

Having someone with whom I share absolutely everything, including my insecurity and doubts about our relationship gave me a new perspective of the world. Here is someone I don’t need to push to make things happen, because he will only do whatever he is sure is the right thing to do. Someone who knows how to deal with me each time I fall apart and start pushing everyone away. Someone who instinctly insists with me until I speak what I tend to keep inside, but who also gives me the room to set up my mind whenever I need it. LOL, he even knows how to apply “the silence treatment” which works wonders in making me realise how much I hurt him at times.

I know all too well I am very difficult to deal with, and this is just one of the reasons I recognise in him a particular human quality: compassion. He knows how to listen, he easily understands feelings even when only half-muttered. He is well balanced and puts together reason and heart. Most of all, he is a real human being, not afraid of speaking and facing problems, arguing or discussing matters, which is RARE in guys. A corageous type, who reveals his own fragilities and knows all too well that we both rock the boat, sometimes together, sometimes on our own so the other one can have a rest.

That is why I dare jumping in this cruise together. Because I fully trust him and know he will always do his best. Now… all that remains to be known is where this joint travel will lead us to – and hopefully we will have a lifetime to discover that.

No, my monthversary gift wasn’t the sun – though Petros takes me to the moon every night. Then again, you see, it’s not too hard to keep a girl happy, even when she insists on writing silly wish lists just to confuse her partner, hehehe

What’s the secret ? The most obvious of them all – keep it simple ! In my case, it totally made my day to be led to one of my favourite stores (League, in this case) and be asked… to choose whatever I wanted, hehehe

And since this is one situation where a girl should never be shy… so I did, LOL. I chose a set which is sold separately, thus allowing us to match a top with leggings. I had drooled over it during previous visits, but had always bought something else instead – so this was my chance, I made a party out of it and took home three different tops and some new leggings.

YAY! I do love you, babe !! *grabs Petros’ hand and drags him home, closing the door behind the two of us*

Oh… my… god !

Bear with me, alright ? First thing, because most of you know that I love Petros dearly. This man-rock that caught me back during my wreck days and was patient and caring enough to bring me back to life again. ‘Nuff said *smiles*.

And I guess… when you are in love it’s hard to keep your eyes away from your loved one, right ? Well, that much is what happens to me – but then again, take a look at the pictures below and tell me – if it were you, would you be able to look any other way ? ❤
