This week has been a lot less busy then the previous one, thank heavens. But it has still been a emotional one. And of course the warm weather has not helped tremendously. It is luckily nowhere near as war m as it was, although today the temperature did reach a good twenty-eight degrees.

Not entirely weather that entices you to go out and do stuff, is it? On the plus side of things, I did manage to get out of the house and meet some friends in town on Wednesday and actually had a fun and lovely evening, after a less then ideal start. Still the situation improved considerably after about and hour and it was well near one o’clock in the morning before I actually crawled in through the doorway.

And in doing so, I actually managed to visit a little bar that I have had my eye on for quite a while but never gathered up my strength to go and visit it. Until the opportunity presented itself on Wednesday. Of course, as such things goes, I immediately regretted not having gone earlier as it turned out to be a cracking little bar, with a rather well stocked assortment of beer and other spirits. And I got to taste a gin here that was made here right in the county, so I am rather chuffed with that. All in all a wonderful night.

Who does not love movies? I think most people love the idea of movies, either at home or at the cinema. Admittedly the latter is often, or rather can be, a lot more fun experience. But watching a movie flaked out on the couch is not bad either. So what prompted that little segue?

It’s been a busy and warm week!!! I am sure if people actually hear the  the temperature that I have been dealing with they think that I am some sort of weirdly wuss creature that can’t handle anything. Truth to be told really, we are not build for heat around these parts. you know fifteen to twenty degrees will do us just fine.

The relative upside of this, is that I have seen some of the most awesome photos of the weather, beautiful and deadly lightning and striking super-cells in the air. Photos we have seen the last few years, usually from the United States. To have them from our coast in our weather is something a little bit special.

Real life has been incredibly busy the last week as well, which means I have had very little in the term of talking to people in either world, real or virtual about kink related things. The result of this is that I haven’t really got news of some of the things to write about. Terrible isn’t it?

But luckily I manage to dust of an old questionnaire I found and had stored in my folder full of ideas of once to write about. So I am going to give this a go. If you fancy giving this a go as well, please copy the questions as per usual and fill in the answers.

So, tell me your deepest, darkest secrets and I’ll tell you mine… (maybe…)

After the shock and sadness from last week, this week has luckily been rather more on the level, in terms of excitement. Something I have been largely grateful for. Not that this has been an easy week. I miss my kitten deeply and I keep doing little things before catching myself out.

I know that it is normal but, it still makes me think of him and feel a little bit sad. Normal but upsetting at the same time, although on the other hand I should be worried if I did not react that way. I know with time it will pass and I will look upon the time shared between me and him with warmth and happiness. Still to raw at the moment I think.

I saw something interesting on twitter this evening. Apparently there is a writers contest being held. One short story, twenty-five hundred words, nothing pre-published. I may actually partake in that. Of course the non pre-published part means I can not use any of my stories that I have written so far. So I will need to have a think about this, not to mention what I will write about.

This week I wanted to write a little more BDSM orientated. I told you I would return to my favourite subject at some point. Tonight’s inspiration came by the way of Tessa Romanov who poked me last night that one of the regulars in Second Life and also a blogger was writing a blog about gags.

Now I love gags, and by that extension all kinds of sensory deprivation play. So I quickly hopped over to have a listen and a chat and I had a lovely evening chatting with the wonderful Tyra and Tessa, about the pros and cons. While I do not want to steal away Tyra’s thunder by writing exclusively about gags, I decided to write a little bit about the use of sensory deprivation within BDSM, and especially aimed at the problems one encounters in virtual environments such as Second Life.

As someone mentioned to me, I tend to say quite often that I do not know what to write about or that this is not going to be a long blog. Then to prove myself wrong I write easily in excess of a good two thousand words.

Is that long? I do not know. however what I know is this. When I started blogging, for some reason or another I decided that a decent length blog would be around the sixteen hundred word mark. Not a target I always manage and I have at times down scaled my own expectations to anywhere between twelve and sixteen hundred as a good amount. Often however I tend to go well over it.

The strange thing of this all, is that this number is entirely arbitrary. I havre actually never asked my Mistress, how much words she expected of me and she never actually told me either. Strange that. I think for her, the fact that I wrote was more important to her, then the amount that I wrote. Either that or she had a number in her head and wanted to see, how well I did on my own, before stepping in. It does not overly matter in any case. I write to my best ability.

What I suppose, is important, that she has kindled my desire to write, my ability to write (when that ability choose to manifest itself) and given me structure in my life to do so. For that alone I am thankful.

So, why did I start this blog, with saying about writing?
