A Brief View

I seem hardly to have time for serious kink blogging these days but it’s not forgotten. Nor is the joy of it decreased. Still happy domesticity and a myriad of other projects take my time away both from here and also from the public play and photography that fuels this blog.

This coming year though I hope to find more time for those, to satisfy my Boy’s needs and my own desires. Perhaps too I will find time to muse on the complex peculiarities of our D/s relationship, which seems (in its own unique way) to meet our fluctuating needs.

In the meantime I can reflect that this last year has been full of love and happiness and that I am truly the luckiest of women. Happy New Year to you all.

A Familiar View

Writing something here is a yearly tradition but there is perhaps little to say. This year has brought little that is new, few startling revelations for me or for you readers. Yet I have relationships that flourish, I am loved and love in return. I even find I have a few people I can talk to, in the flesh so to speak, about my life, my loves and my kinks.

So perhaps all I can say here for now is that it is, what I wish for you all, a very happy new year.

The View Five Years On

Five years ago I started this blog. Five years, of ups and downs and surprises, five years of love, laughter and kink. Five years of writing, photographing, playing and discovering.

Maybe sometimes this year I’ve got a little busy and not written here as much as I would have liked. I know I haven’t found time to read as many other blogs as I would have liked. If you want me to come and read yours then add a comment here and I promise I’ll come and look at it.

Play has been patchy too but what we have had has been fun. There have been a few great opportunities for getting naked outside too.

This coming year, well it may well be the year my Boy gets to suck more cock, maybe even get fucked too (offers always welcome from polite but sexy gentlemen).

I have no idea what it will bring me – but then that was always the point. The view is still changing.

 

The View Doesn’t Change Much

When I try to look back at the past year of blogging it’s difficult to see much change from last year.

My relationships have continued, loving and special and I’m very lucky to be so loved. Perhaps though, quiet happiness is not the most interesting story (to anyone other than myself).

My kink has been fun and rewarding but far too often displaced by real life. I’ve not managed to get nearly the amount of rope work done that I had hoped; it’s been too long since I even picked up any.

This blog itself is still here. I’ve done some reviews, taken some photos, shared my thoughts and feelings. Even when it’s been difficult, I’ve kept this blog alive, making sure I wrote something regularly. I’ve been surprised by just how much the reviews are read, more popular even than nude photographs.

Still, this blog helps me keep track of my kink successes, lets me share my Boy’s delightful antics and reminds me to keep that part of my life in focus.
Let’s see what this year brings.

The View As I See It

As the year rolls around and the anniversary of my blog arrives I find myself taking stock of where I am and how well I have met my goals for the year.

My relationship with Mat has grown stronger and deeper and I feel so much more secure in it than I did a year ago.
My relationship with Perrin is happier and more relaxed and he is still so very loved and special to me.
As a Domme I have had some wonderful fun, including arranging a very special birthday surprise for my Boy. I have learnt a great deal and have enjoyed chronicling it (and photographing it) in these pages.
My submissive side has been largely put on hold but the occasional fantasy lets me know it is still there in some fashion.

For next year, my desire is to continue on this journey and see where it takes me. To continue to meet and get to know interesting people, to learn more rope (and get more practice) and to have fun with the people I love most.

2012 was awesome. Here’s to an even better 2013 for all of us.

The View From The Top

Another year passes and it is time to pause and look at the view from here.
I had some resolutions for this year. One was to meet new people. I made a real effort to do this and am delighted to have made several new friends. One of those friends turned out to be more important than I could possibly have expected. From two submissives meeting for coffee and a chat to a Domme and her boy falling in love together was a short step but utterly unexpected. That resolution and that coffee have shaped my entire year and this blog.

Indeed I wanted to continue writing the blog and I have ended up writing far more than I would have expected and received more feedback than I ever hoped for. I am very grateful to everyone who has taken the time to read or comment.
I also wanted to make the people I loved happy, that perhaps I have done least well at. Perrin’s depression has been a real challenge for me to deal with and I struggle with the implications of that still.

So what have I learned this year?
I’ve learned how important it is to stick to the rules of a relationship and to discuss them honestly.
I’ve learned that I can (sometimes) have sex without commitment and it can be a lot of fun.
I’ve learned that I have a dominant side and that expressing that is extremely satisfying.

For next year I want to explore my dominant side further and grow in confidence. I want to find a niche for my submissive side, a way of expressing what I need within the limitations I currently have. I hope Mat and I continue to grow in our relationship and build a deeper understanding into the love and passion we share. I hope to help Perrin find his own happiness again and see him his true self again. I think I have my work cut out for me but I’m going to give it my very best shot and, of course, I will continue to chronicle my progress here.
