Memories of London
Two days' rest after arriving home from London and playing the remember-when-to-sleep game, I am happy to report that I had a fantastic time - and met some truly memorable people.
Saturday turned into Sunday during my flight from McCarren to Heathrow airports, and England sprang-forward an hour while I was in the air, none of which I truly understand on a quantum level but I did manage to avoid the dreaded trans-continental jet lag somehow. Thanks to the connections of a wonderful friend, the flight was the most pleasurable I've had (and many of you know just how little I love air travel, so this was particularly nice).
After checking into my apartment and getting a good night's sleep, I hopped on the underground train on Monday morning for a short trip to meet with the lovely Pandora Blake and her crew for a fun day of spanking video. We shot several scenes, talked and laughed a lot, and I was totally charmed by Pandora and Mike, the two fantastic spankees who I had the happy task of disciplining. I'll be tickled to see the end result - and will definitely share previews and links here when they're available.
The rest of the week was spent between happy anticipation at meeting and playing with some long-term correspondents, and a sense of self-satisfied exhaustion.
I had the distinct pleasure of delivering a spanking prize to our UK Laureate, who is just as eloquent in person as on page, and I will be sharing his account of our meeting here later in the week.
One of my wonderful new playmates writes his own CP blog, and has posted an account of our playtime HERE.
A couple of my playmates and I have been corresponding for over a year, and it was so nice to finally meet and 'get my hands' on them.
One boy flew in from a neighboring country, and I was able to connect with a playmate from here in the States, as well.
The role-play was some of the best I've experienced to date - and the conversation, too. I found that the 'stereotype' of the polite Brit is absolutely true, and every one of my playmates were impeccable gentlemen from start to finish. They're a tough bunch, too, as my still-recovering left palm and shoulder can attest.
Flowers, cards, and gifts were in abundance, and I have enough bathtub reading materials to last me well into the next year. Ahh, books!
Some time well-spent with my Windsor-born friend, and a few strolls through the neighborhood were all else I could ask for - except maybe the fish and chips which, sadly, I skipped.
Another trip is most definitely in the making. Next time, maybe I'll do some sightseeing, but the true joy for me in London was (and will continue to remain) the people. My most sincere thanks to everyone I met, for your kindness and trust. See you again soon!
P.S. And then there was the knicker stealing gopher..
