Rest of the week

Tuesday sees madame and I Oxford Street bound. A quick visit to Primarni for some xmas presents and I pick up a pair of very tight black shiny trousers and a visit to Superdrug for some makeup for me then onto Pret for a lateish breakfast. We then wander M&S seeking ideas for xmas presents for madame to no avail. A usual trawl of Selfridges returns the same result. Things are either too expensive or are totally wrong. Ah well I do have a short list of things.
A midweek trawl of Brent Cross turns up nothing but its a few hours out and about.
Its the LAM tomorrow and we will get to meet up with the delicious Penny and Natacha, hopefully Sarah and Russell will be there too. To be able to get two more days dressed results in picture taking this morning.....

Two days

Two days of out and about with Stephanie. Sunday sees us off to Tate Britain somewhere I had not been for a while. The last time they were part way through the refurbishment so it was much improved. A thoroughly enjoyable few hours were spent wandering although we did think that it should be renamed the J M W Turner appreciation society. Of course I know that they are the recipients of the Turner bequest but it is Turner overload and I am not THAT much of a fan especially of his later works. Thankfully there are many others examples to take our attention. Art philistine I may be but many examples of modern art leave me cold. Aaaanyway after much wandering hunger drives us forth into the cold and drafty Millbank and into Pizza Express.
We walk to Parliament Square and do a few pictures then hop a bus up to Oxford Street and Selfridges. Stephanie wants to buy some upmarket makeup! In we go only to have to join a queue for the ladies, why oh why does it take women sooo long! One of the very few advantages of maleness, in, out and away LOL. Aaaaanyway we make our way to Chanel and a lovely young lady helps Stephanie, she tries a few different lipsticks on her and she buys two plus a lipliner and brush and we exit Stephanie quite a bit poorer but a very happy lady. Its then time for home and dinner.
Monday is photo day and thence a trip to Brent Cross. As we are both a tad poor its just a wander although we are severely tempted by items in Lipsy. I have to take Stephanie home as madame and I are out to dinner that night.
Ah the delights of the Holloway Road, we manage to park and walk to the restaurant, a Thai establishment which it turns out is rather nice, everything freshly cooked. Its the daughter-in-laws birthday so there is quite a crowd of us, sixteen in all so the staff are well pleased so many on a Monday night, I bet he has never had so many people.

Joy of joys

Well it would be a shame to have wasted the nail polish so a photo session today and.......... oh wonders of wonders a particular outfit fits again if rather snugly. It must have been around 15 odd years ago when we first embarked on our fetish journey and we visited an emporium in Camden Market now long gone called F.U. Baby selling Murray and Verne and you can see madame talking to Tatiana in the shop. Amongst our purchases was a skirt and top which haven't fitted for many, many years and they do now!!

Delightful days

Another two happy days with Stephanie. Off out on Friday, bus up to the west-end and a delicious lunch in M&S and then onto the Science Museum in South Kensington. Well my lovelies I hadn't been there for many a year. Oh how it has changed. We were rather taken by the ground floor but not so enamoured by the higher ones, in fact they got worse the higher we went. Ah childhood memories of flicking switches and turning handles, all gone. Herds of school children of course but we walk round unnoticed.

A minor hiatus when Stephanie loses her handbag but it is soon found, phew! Off out into the cold and a bus back to the west-end. We dive into Superdrug as Stephanie needs some new razors. Well as you can imagine it is one of life's little laughs buying male sundries whilst en femme.
After dinner we take ourselves off the Ikea at Brent Park for various items. Quite amazing we only get a couple of quizzical looks.
Today, well morning is photo time followed by lunch an a visit to Brent Cross. Of course it is much more crowded than weekdays but it doesn't stop us, oh dear me no.

Off to Westfield White City yesterday with madame. The overground is out of action so we elect to go by.... bus. Big mistake. Not only do we have to wait and wait, with the bus in sight because of traffic but it takes an age. A very popular bus route that to say it goes around the houses is no exaggeration. Not only do we get traffic just about everywhere but being popular it stops at nearly every stop! Ah the delights of Willesden and Harlesden, Acton and Shepherds Bush... not. So not only is it long and drawn out it is desperately boring and frustrating. Aaaaanyway we get there, eventually and a nice day ensues, a late, late breakfast and lunch. Biggest disappointment was Reiss, the three visions of loveliness that were there last time have gone to be replaced by.... men. We pop into Aspinalls and see three totally wonderful handbags. The Hepburn which is nice, the fabulous python and the absolute favourite embossed Brook Street but just a tad out of our price range. Of course it happens again, up comes the assistant who says, can I help you ladies! That is until I turn round LOL.
Madame gets herself one of the limited edition LBD's in H&M, not a shop we usually frequent but it is rather nice.
Thankfully the trains are mended and our journey home is vastly quicker.

Another one?

So after last week's manic activity this weekend of course was as quiet as the proverbial grave, an ideal opportunity for yet another photo session. I must admit I've rather overdone the photo's recently but what with this weight loss its more to see what fits and what is now too big and of course I do so love being dressed.
Talking of weight loss the treggings I bought a week or so ago are now too big so they have been passed onto madame and she has replaced them with a pair of size 10's which we picked up yesterday and they fit, like a glove, as they should.

It is quite disappointing in a way that some of the corsets are now too big, of course not all of them are mine but still the opportunity to 'borrow' them is no longer there. The red leather Rawhide never was a favourite but the plaid Miss Katie meets at the back and is not tight enough, oh that it was two inches smaller.
Madame has taken yet more stuff to D of Second Coming for her to sell on, a couple of Dolenta Breathless outfits and that lovely House of Harlot military one. Some lucky so-and-so's are going to get themselves a bargain. I really must try the Samurai outfit Dolenta made as a one off but it being a male outfit its hard to drum up the enthusiasm.
Ah well I can't sit here wittering today is joy-of-joys, Tesco day.
