Hopefully I will have recovered enough for dinner tomorrow night with PFK, Sarah, Dolenta and Andy, at least we don't have to travel too far.
The best news of the week has to be the return of Club-Rub to Dukes! It is so nice when something returns to its spiritual home but will it live up to its former glory? I'd love it to happen but somehow I doubt it. I did notice though that a strict dresscode will be enforced, thank goodness, must have something to do with the success of Kim's other venture, Rubbercult.

I suppose it is because we are all different but I just don't need this community thing. You know only going to places and mixing with people with the same interests or ways of life. Of course there are circumstances and activities which require this but not to exclusion of all else. I just don't get it, its a big, big world out there so why restrict yourself? Since going out in my other persona I now feel I really am a bit turned off by t-girl only events. Even fetish events are becoming all the same. If you want to get accepted then you have to advertise yourself, put in an appearance, otherwise no one will know you exist. The more you get seen the more you become.... everyday and more or less ignored, just another face in the crowd. Or is it that secretly what you want, to be pointed at, laughed at and ridiculed? Some do, I know they do, they just love to be part of an oppressed minority and they wear their badge with great pride.

Monday see me attempting to visit the V&A. I leave home at about 9 and lo there is a bus. I board the same and off we go, for a while. Traffic causes us to halt and we creep along for about half a mile before a full stop and the driver announces in two stops the bus will turn round. Blast. Off I get and decide that this is a total waste of my time. It is bloody freezing, blowing a gale and it is snowing so I cross the road and catch a bus home and warmth.

Aaaanyway we left home and bussed it up to Selfridges, popped into M&S for a totally scrumptious chicken BLT and coffee then caught the bus over to the V&A.
This time we limit ourselves to the ground floor. Chinese and Japanese, Medieval and Renaissance and the cast court. At least we looked at exhibits properly, unlike last time which was more of a whirlwind tour.
My goodness we get some looks but nothing can compare to the Italian woman who gave us a smile that lit up the room and totally lovely museum worker that insisted she took our picture.
An altogether thoroughly enjoyable day.

It is a shame that these types of events appear to be on the wane. Less and less vendors chasing less and less customers, of course it might be a sign of the times but somehow I don't think so. Still it was nice to catch up with friends.
Yesterday sees us paying a birthday visit to Dolenta, a lovely afternoon drinking Cava and eating chocolate cake and Japanese chocolates, white with a freeze dried strawberry inside.... YUM and much sillyness winding up with the four of us inviting ourselves to another friend for dinner Friday. It seems PFK and Hannah have booked for Berlin and the German Fetish Ball so on our return home we book ourselves into the same hotel.
