Losing My SL Home is a Virtual Shock!

How suddenly things happen in SL, yesterday I had a message from my Estate Manager that she was giving up the sim and I would have to move.  I’ve had my parcel of land for 3 years and to be honest I was very fond of  it.  It does seem strange that you can become fond of something that’s only virtual, but it was somewhere I went back to that was my own little space, where I didn’t have to have people invading, which a lot of newbies or passers-by do if you haven’t got somewhere private.  I’d put in real waves and a little tiki hut and I loved my spacious house.  It’s lucky that I can take them all with me, but finding the ideal location again will be a job. 

It doesn’t take long to pack it all away and soon I was left with just the bare beach and I’m pleased I can put my pictures on the blog so I can look back at them.  I know how Hibiscus felt now when she had to leave Victoriana in SL, I know she was really upset at the time.   I started to have a look around for a new parcel, but it’s not something I will rush into as I want to find somewhere that suits me. 

Yesterday wasn’t all negative though, I asked Kat Kassner if I could open up a little Christmas shop in her New London and next thing she  had built this wonderful Dickens style store for me!  I have moved a lot of my Christmas Decorations and Trees in already and it looks really nice.  I stood outside chatting to her and Laredo as she worked on it.  Thanks Kat you cheered me up no end!!

  1. Wow… was that the first land you moved into? If so, I think this was taken there: https://headburroantfarm.wordpress.com/2007/12/02/xmas-janey/

  2. Yes it was!! and that was the giant bear that Wheemzel gave me in the picture! I suppose to have a piece of land that long is a bit amazing in SL! sadly the sim has gone now!

    J :))

  3. I thought I had a lot more of your island – picture with you, me & Pinkie – but I can’t find them! I suspect they would have been taken direct to my inventory rather than emailed out to Picasa or Flickr… I’ll take a looksee next time I’m in-world.

  4. I think you did take a lot of photos, you always have been brilliant at taking pictures. They are lovely to keep as nothing seems permanent in SL.

  5. It’s a strangely ever-shifting place and no mitake 🙂
