Time off begins 

Hi all waves from Harp 🙂 I am very happy to say the above as this helper elf has been getting so tired. Now off to the end of the month *big smiles*

Plans so far to not have to get up before 10am at the earliest. Some shopping in Glasgow as Edinburgh is a touch claustrophobic for shopping at present. To eat a enjoyable cooked and healthy breakfast. To participate in some of the shows in the Edinburgh Fringe festival and to simply enjoy being a tourist or person of leisure in my own city 🙂 This forthcoming weekend sees two Kink events on and I will be able to go to them both and recover on Monday time off rocks. 

As for weather I’m not going to get that great as big sis heck I will be lucky if it doesn’t rain the only thing that changes in Scotland is you get warm rain and not cold rain. 

Plan to get more coloring and reading done in my time off and recharge my nearly flat battery not from main work but from helping out everywhere else. 

Hope everyone stays well and happy if you wish to chat do drop me line 🙂 

Kindest Regards and Best Wishes

Just a bit of a grumble 

Last weekend after being tempted strongly by the flyers for health and wellbeing fairs down in Leeds and Yorkshire I was thrilled to see one on FB that was going to be held in Edinburgh Hanover street to be exact. 

The day didn’t exactly start that well running late overslept so couldn’t have usual Ostara breakfast but eventually got bus into town centre found venue. Little did I know I was in for a disappointment as unlike the ones down south this one was only one hall even it was free I expected more so going in to explore I left my doubts at the door. Passing a tarot person then onto a crystal angel person who seemed determined to flog me one despite having a pentagram on as usual. Approaching the final desk I had a brief hope this one might actually be better as it had a crystal wheel on the table. Unfortunately I was wrong noting a piece of interesting bloodstone I went to the stall owner oh is that bloodstone knowing full well it was to have her go oh I thought I stuck the tigers eye there yes you guessed it she couldn’t tell her stones apart. I ended up giving her advice on bloodstone and sardonyx water which rebalances the body to the comment of oh I must try this with my teenage daughter. By this point thoroughly disheartened I left as I knew more about the crystals than they did it shouldn’t work that way 😦 my own fault really for expecting it to be like the one down south. Luckily the afternoon was saved by a great meal in the city restaurant. Maybe at somepoint a decent sized health and wellbeing fair will come up this end of the country. As oddly you can become a licensed and accredited Crystal therapist with courses in Glasgow so we cannot all be cynics up here in Scotland. 

Till next time 🙂 

Kind Regards and Best wishes

The small things that count 

After missing a good friend for a period of time then having another conversation with them whether it be on email, text or phone it makes you smile makes everything just that little bit brighter. Receiving a message or sending and getting one straight back from one who thinks the same wavelength as you do is always good we all need that one person. Sometimes the small things can be mutual knowing that a guy friend likes a head rub or another likes a shoulder rub and being able to do those small things that make them happy. Just being able to be yourself around someone not having to watch what you say but being truly free to be you quirks and all. I truly am thankful to the guys in my life who have let me know their inner secrets and trust me to not exploit them. One guy called F who I usually meet at many of the events I go to literally turns to a pile of mush the minute you run just a finger very lightly down his back do with more than one finger and he seems to go weak at the knees and his legs start to buckle. It’s amazing watching and hearing his reactions and sometimes I think I give guys what they need in sensation or impact play due to the fact that I love the reactions that it brings forth for you to experience see and enjoy. I guess I am saying remember the little things they can become big things and you can truly make someone feel better about themselves and in the long run make you feel good too. A long term friend called C knows I give good headrubs and scratches and he’s lucky I enjoy doing them so it’s a good symbiosis. Now go out there and make someone happy today. 

Stay well and Best Wishes

Online Censorship 

A topic that I didn’t really want to bring up bit it’s been on my mind recently. Currently in the states despite winning against the FCC and keeping the Internet open under title 2 in 2015 a new broom has swept in and is trying again to censor and block certain parts of the net 😦 I for one hope this doesn’t happen as it really is a breach to freedom of speech. 

In fact over here at present a particular carrier blocks access to Fetlife why obviously due to the fact that they think you shouldn’t be viewing it despite being a adult and paying them monthly in order to access it you have to use a VPN to get around this daftness you should not have to. I believe that since I am adult and not inflicting my beliefs on anyone I should be allowed to do what I want to do yes I have kinks a mile long but I am not pushing them on people and trying to corrupt them. My inspirational with some wickedness blog on tumblr is marked for over 18s only it even states that in the blog intro as it’s occasionally wicked. When did the powers that be start to nanny us quite so badly as it’s not just kinks that it’s effecting. Go into my workplace and you will only find diet drinks full of sweeteners that are artificial why because they can’t sell you ones with sugar that’s bad for you. In restaurants it’s almost the same virtually all diet drinks and they hide the salt this is apparently bad for us also. So when it comes to the Internet I want to be able to do what I do within reason I can be myself and wear my kinks on the outside. What they don’t realise is that have you ever heard of a alcohol problem or a rape issue at a kink event it happens in normal clubs which is why I don’t go to them. The reason for this is that Kink despite being different is very well organised there are DMs there’s rules and people follow the guidelines of consent and consensus more than the everyday person. What the government needs to stop doing is nannying people or it will go underground to avoid the regulations that are being placed on it. Give people freedom and liberty to do as they please and wish and genuinely they will be a lot happier as a society on whole. 

Thanks for listening to this post rant folks. 

Stay well and Happy

Usually it is best if a stone is worn in close contact to the skin to have the best possible interaction with the body energies.
