Yesterday I had a spa day, and where we always say we are ‘going to the sauna’, we only ever sit in the infra-red sauna and never for more than 10 minutes. Other than that we swim, we sit in herbal baths, bubble baths and we have coffee and cake and lunch and dinner. That’s our kind of relaxing day. Normally I go with my best friend, but yesterday an ex-colleague-who-became-friend of hers joined us. This lady loves joining in with the different pouring rituals and we decided to join her for at least one of those. And? It was wonderful! We were going for a second one too, but I stayed in the rest room and even napped some, while they went to the second pouring sessions. It was a wonderful day, and I came back home feeling tired and content.
One awkward moment (not for me, but for him) was when I noticed the husband of a colleague. I saw him a couple of times and where I was prepared to greet him, he just constantly turned his head away, even when I almost literally bumped into him rounding a corner. Ha! Maybe it’s because I was naked almost every time I saw him. I tend to hang my towel away and walk from one bath to the other, or to a shower or sauna or whatever, and retrieve my towel later, as I have no problem with nakedness, and I wouldn’t have looked at him in any other way, had I seen him fully naked, which I haven’t as he constantly held his towel in front of his crotch. It’s always interesting to see what happens when you bump into someone familiar, especially in places where you don’t expect them to be.
As always there are some posts from the past week I want to highlight here…
To me BDSM sessions are about control and pain and tears and subspace, and aftercare. In his post, Tender, Jaime Mortimer has shared just how important aftercare is.
I had tears in my eyes after I read Two Michaels, One Known As Mick by Bibulous One. “Lest we forget” gets a totally different meaning when we read personal stories by people we know.
One of the striking posts I have read for Wicked Wednesday this week, is the one by Melody called Control – The Jedi Mind Trick. If you are in the BDSM lifestyle, whether you are dominant or submissive, you should read this.
Last week I was totally into Cara Thereon’s NaNoWriMo2018 story and I pointed you to it, not knowing that for the second week, Cara would start a new story. If you have read and enjoyed her story for week 1, you might want to read the story for week 2 too. And, I have a feeling we are going to get a totally new story for week 3, so keep an eye on her site!
If you want to see a gorgeous cock shot, then Snow White by Violet Fawkes is where you have to be! The edit has a dreamlike feel and the focus in this image is brilliant!
Looking at thebarefootsub’s Sinful Sunday image, Basking… Sinfully, I felt this incredible pull to be naked outdoors for one, but mostly to be tightly tied in rope again. Combining the two is just… bliss.
If you want to see an image that will make you wonder just how it has been done, look at Blue Tit by Exposing40. This is a brilliant edit, and this is how she did it: the photo was taken with an app called PhotoBox which I have on my iPad on the light tunnel setting and then I applied a blueish filter using the vintage setting of Snapseed.
I am a sucker for images with beautiful rope work in it, and where Yellow, in Black & White is not about artistic rope, it’s a stunning image posted by Jade.

Last but not least
A week ago I had my first-ever yoga lessons. Some years ago I did a challenge — 101 things in 1001 days — and one of the things on there was that I wanted to do at least one yoga lesson. Now, years later, I have finally done it, and where I hate that my body is so totally inflexible, I am going to continue with it and see if I can get some suppleness back in my muscles. Last week was power yoga and this week was slow yoga, and after these two lessons, I am sure my Saturdays for many weeks to come will start with yoga.
And, this coming week I will have my first ever Zumba lesson…
