Apologies first off for the death of posts of late. Work is super busy and stressful at the moment and both Owner and i have been otherwise preoccupied since we returned from our trip to the USA and there hasn't been much to write about (incidentally there are some more pictures from that trip below). We went to Spain for a long weekend to visit Owners' parents and also celebrate Her birthday, which was fun and this weekend i am taking Her to Dusseldorf on a belated birthday weekend break. But apart from that we haven't been doing much accept working long hours and yearning for the days when we were both a bit more relaxed and less stressed with life. Hopefully we will get back there again soon though.

We did, however, have an enjoyable day out yesterday. We visited the Photographers Gallery in London to see an excellent and fascinating exhibition about cross-dressing in the late 19th and first half of the 20th century. It was really, really interesting and is well worth visiting if you are in London. Particularly fascinating to me was the tradition of women's cross-dressing in the first US Universities to admit female students where it was commonplace for the students to dress-up for 'practice weddings'.

Anyway, after this we decided we would head to one of our favourite London pubs to indulge in one of our favourite activities, people watching. Owner and i can both spend hours observing and gossipping about others. The first pub we went to was unusually busy so we de-camped to another. There was a largish mixed group in the room and we settled down to drink and observe. Anyway, to cut a long story short (and at least an hour's guessing before we realised) it was apparent that we had sat down amongst a group of people out to attend one of London's many munches. This was a singles munch. We both found it amusing that we were a, now legally married, FLR/BDSM couple sat amongst a group of people looking for the same sort of relationship we have enjoyed for well over a decade now. It made me reflect how lucky i am to have met Owner all those years ago.

I got a number of curious looks from those attending (we were sat apart from the main group) as my collar (which i wear 24/7) always makes it obvious to anyone who is aware that i am submissive and Owned. However, that was all. Owner and i have never actually attended a munch but it was interesting to observe one and i hope that those who were there find themselves as lucky as i have been.

Last but not least, i promised some more pictures from our brief US road trip, so here you go.

Hope this finds all our readers well and sorry for the recent absence of posts, all is good with us.
Well i can now reveal the exciting new that i have been alluding to over the past few months. Owner and i are now legally married as wife (me) and Husband (Her). We recently returned from a week long whirlwind trip to the USA which ended in Las Vegas and the two of us getting officially hitched next to the 'Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas' sign - see images from the ceremony below:

We are now officially married. We did all the necessary paperwork at the Clark county registry office the night before and then for the ceremony itself we used the services of the wonderful Las Vegas Wedding Wagon - an LGBTQ friendly service where you tell them where you want to get hitched (location-wise) and they turn up and do the service for you. It is actually run by a lovely English couple who couldn't have been nicer or put Owner and i more at ease - we were both pretty nervous. The Minister even referred to me as the 'wife' and to Owner as the 'Husband' throughout the ceremony.

Of course i had on my collar too (and a fancy pink feather hairclip).
i also wore a blue garter with my stockings but you cannot see that!

We couldn't be happier!

Many of you will recall that we were both 'married' a few years ago but that was a non-legal service. This is fully legal and we are now officially married.

i will post more about our trip shortly, it was amazing! But in the meantime i wanted our readers to know of our exciting news.
Today is the day i turned 48 years old. To mark the occasion Owner is taking me away to France this weekend but She had a special, and unexpected, surprise in store for me today. i was working from home today and shortly after i returned home from having walked her to the station this morning, for Her to catch Her train, i received the following Whatsapp message from Owner.

'Birthday challenge: you must spank your testicles 48 tines, wear your butt plug for 48 minutes and take a picture of yourself outside with a sign reading: i am a 48 year old slut'

Owner knows how much i love challenges like these and this was a real treat to receive. i was really thrilled and excited at the prospect and resolved to complete the challenges as soon as i had got ready for work. It being a home working day i was wearing hold-ups, a skirt and blouse.

The following are some of the photos i sent to Owner by way of providing proof that i had completed the tasks i was set.

First off, testicle spanking x 48 with our favourite wooden spoon

Next step, butt plug selection and insertion (to be worn for 48 minutes) - as you can see i opted for the furry one
 The plug tail was still visible when i pulled my skirt down
can you spot my 'tail'
And then finally, out into the street with my sign around my neck
No tail in view but the plug was still there

It was a very exciting way to start the day!
Owner has bought Herself a new little camera in preparation for a forthcoming trip of ours. She bought it yesterday and today asked if She could do a photo shoot of me in the park to test it. i, of course, leapt at the opportunity! So, after doing some exercises and baking this morning (lemon and blueberry bread) and making lunch for us both we set off to our local park to take some pictures. Here are a selection:

This coming weekend we are going to France for my birthday (48!) which we are both really looking forward to. However, next month we are heading to the USA for a super special trip - this is the exciting event i have been alluding to in a few recent posts. There is so much i want to tell you about that trip but i am afraid i am going to keep you in suspense a little longer.
Just a quick little post to wish everyone a belated (very) happy new year and that all of your dreams for 2018 come true. Owner and i had a relatively quiet time over the holidays. We were apart for Xmas with our respective families but then were reunited again shortly afterwards. On New Years eve we went to a pub we have recently discovered near Holborn in Central London and which we both like after having earlier hit the shops. But we were home in time for me to cook a roast dinner for us both and were in bed before midnight.

i got some vouchers for Xmas from my Dad which, with Owners permission, i used to invest in some fancy new knickers. We both like them a lot and you can see them (and my bum) below

i also have been wanting to get a new blazer to wear for work for some time now. Owner permitted me to buy one but it took ages to find a single breasted, non-fitted woman's blazer that might be appropriate. Seemingly double-breasted is all the fashion this year but i wanted a single-breasted. Anyway, after much searching on line by us both i eventually tracked down this one in Very It arrived super quick (the next day!) and we both really like it. You can see me modelling it below
Owner has also got me a special treat for my birthday (later this month). She has booked us a trip to Lille in France for a weekend which we are both looking forward to. Then the following month we are doing something super exciting which i can't wait to tell you all about - but not yet :)

Have a wonderful 2018!
