If money was absolutely no issue whatsoever, I would move to a place with a Goldilocks climate. The Channel Isles come to mind. I’ve spent a week on Jersey once and thoroughly enjoyed it. As I’m only afforded a modicum of freedom and won’t be leaving Stockholm anytime soon, I make a conscious effort to welcome the winter.
Icy pavements, fine snow being blown in my face by the kind of wind that could shave the eyebrows of a mosquito and the darkness (whispers:”the darkness”) are just a few of my pet peeves of this season. Oh the relief when I come in from the cold in a warm space! That almost makes up for it in an absurd delayed gratification kind of way. Candles, blankets and hot drinks don’t go all the way when it comes to warming the soul, but they sure take off the edge.
Of course we take all of that with us in SL and even the somewhat neglected old Linden Homes can become a cosy place to hang out in. There’s something therapeutic about creating a comfy daydream spot in this virtual world. Evidently your attire also should be suitable for the occasion. The new Thirst “Union” Suite is the perfect pair of jimjams for a totally self-indulgent session of laziness. The suite is fitted for the Belleza Jake and TMP Legacy mesh bodies and you can currently pick it up at EQUAL10 till December 9th. After that you’ll find it at the Thirst store.
