Modestly Measuring Sizes

“They come in all shapes and sizes don’t they?” Hubby said as we set off
on our early evening stroll.
“I know . . . and that’s just how I like them!!!” I giggled, trying to cool and fan myself in the sticky humidity.
“No, I don’t mean last night!” he laughed. “I mean these bollards!”

“Well, you must admit, they are quite phallic” I teased, as I rubbed against the next one in the road.

“Oh and look” I cried out as we turned the next corner. “These ones are lovely. Tall and ridged, and nicely rounded on top!!!”

“No, I’m not so keen on these ones” I said as we walked on further. “They look a bit awkward, and I don’t like their flat heads”.

“No, I don’t think they will count as bollards” Hubby chastised, “they are more like cones”.
“Mmm, I know, but they would be much more comfortable than the last lot. Let’s stop here for a few minutes!” I purred.

“How about this one?” I called out. “This is a sort-of bollard isn’t it???”
“I don’t think so” he replied. “It’s just to help people stay on the right side.
So probably not much use for you!!!”.

“Well you never normally complain if I stray from the straight and narrow”
I shouted back, trying to make myself heard over the sound of the bus
racing by . . . and not really hearing what he was saying in reply!

“The beeping’s not from the bus” I eventually made out his words. “There’s a car indicating to turn in, so can you move out of the road!!!”

“He was a bit grumpy!” I scowled as I walked back up to Hubby. “He said this is a private turning and not a public thoroughfare!”

So I felt a bit like a scolded, naughty school-girl . . . not for the first-time as Hubby pointed out . . . but I’m hoping that at least some of my measuring different sizes, will qualify for the “Bollards” section
in Jade’s Scavenger Hunt.

But for more immediate naughtiness this Sunday, I suggest you kiss
the Sinful lips below!

Modestly Up-Lift-ing #sinfulsunday

I always enjoy going up and down . . . so I had lots of fun in this swishy lift at
my Wedding Weekend away recently.

Especially as the glass back looked out onto the hotel courtyard and street below (which you’ll catch glimpses of if you click on my buttons above).

And I’m sure you will see lots more Sinful glimpses this Sunday by
pushing patiently on the lips below!

Modestly Aeronautical #sinfulsunday

A glass of wine . . . or two . . . helps of course, but I do get frightfully bored on aeroplanes. My mind starts to wander . . . and I start having “naughty” thoughts.

Like perhaps . . . doing one of Zoe’s (Sex Is My New Hobby) wonderful
Mile High posts at Boobday Friday!
But it’s always so cramped in aeroplane toilets, I thought it might be easier
if I took off my shirt here in my seat and just wore my scarf.

Oooh just imagine the sort of . . . aero-naughty-cal, aviatricks . . . one could
get up to in here.

Mmm . . . it’s making me all wobbly just thinking about it!

Oh my Goodness . . . someone’s knocking on the door asking if I dropped my scarf as I walked down the aisle!!!

Anyway, fully recovered, and with my scarf returned, waiting in the Transit Lounge for the next leg of our journey, I swear I just heard those young men behind me say they are playing ‘Scavenger Hunt’ on their phones!!!

But, I think I shall just indulge the airport’s wi-fi by flying over to this week’s Sinful Sunday from the lips below!

A Geo-Thermal #wickedwednesday

“It’s not the steam that bothers me, it’s more that sulphury smell” I said to Hubby as we stopped at the entrance to the Thermal Park. “That’s because it’s geothermal and the hot steam rises up from underground to supply power”,
he replied. “You’ll get used to it in a few minutes”.

“Oh goodness, it’s all fenced off . . . I don’t remember there being fences the last time we were here!!!” I exclaimed as we reached the first stop.
“Well that was 35 years ago” he said. “And anyway, I seem to recall that it opens-up more further on up the valley”.

“I certainly hope so because it look’s like some sort of space-station now”.

“Do you mean we have to walk in between all those hot pipes and things?”
I asked worringly, as we continued on round the next corner.

“Oh, ok, I do remember this part” I said to Hubby as we reached the next rest stop. “Well come on then, you lead the way!”
Then. . . just as we were about to set-off . . . two large tourist buses pulled into the car-park behind us. Did that curtail our explorations?
Well, just watch this space!!!

But, to give you an idea of the view as it was in 1982, I thought I would include the photo below from my #polaroidspast archives.

Jade’s Scavenger Hunt didn’t exist back then of course, but I’m hoping that my return visit last week, will qualify for inclusion as a Geo-Thermal Site location.

Modestly Immersed #sinfulsunday

Whenever the sun comes out like it has today, I always feel like completely immersing myself in . . . naked . . . summer fun.

You know what I mean I’m sure . . . feeling warm ripples swirling all around!

Feeling the warmth of the sun caressing one’s skin . . .

Whilst taking care not to get too many rays on sensitive bits of course!

But just wanting to float away . . . completely relaxed and care-free.

But, sadly, these photos aren’t from today . . . rather they are from our wonderful Mediterranean vacation last summer!

So days like today just leave me looking forward even more, to immersing myself once again in those lovely relaxing waters.

But, in the meantime, to take my mind off things, I shall just have to immerse myself in this week’s Sinful Sunday by slapping the lips below!

P.S. But remembering those pictures above, I suddenly realised they would be ideal for the “Underwater” category at Jades Scavenger Hunt pages.

Planning our route to Eroticon 2017

“It’s Eroticon next week” I said to Hubby this morning during our morning stroll. “You know we could probably walk to Camden along the towpath”.

“Or maybe even hire a canal boat . . . it’s only two or three locks away.”

“But you would need to put that bloody camera away and help me with these
heavy lock gates!!!”

“And look there’s some lovely little tunnels and bridges we’d travel under.”

“Shall we knock on one of the windows and ask if they do weekend charters?”

“Oh I suppose you are right . . . we probably have left it a bit too late to find a mooring space now. Perhaps it would be easier to take the tube or catch a bus
or cycle there on our bikes . . . or maybe even just walk there.”

But, in the meantime . . . to get myself in the mood . . . I think I’ll just stroll over to this week’s Sinful Sunday from the lips below!

Modesty Catches a Bus #sinfulsunday

We’ve all done it haven’t we? Moaned about waiting for a bus in the cold and damp . . . especially when one has an important appointment to keep!

But actually once inside, London Buses are usually very warm and stuffy.

And I often feel like removing my coat so as not to become too
hot and bothered!

And do you find you can’t help but listen-in to other passengers conversations? Whilst trying to look nonchalant and innocent of course!!!

Anyway, the bus is coming-up for my stop . . . so I always make sure I’ve gathered up my scarf and handbag!

And as I stand-up to get off, I always take heed of the signs and look carefully around me in case I feel I have to report something unusual that
I’ve seen on my journey.

It was quite an uneventful bus trip on this occasion, but it’s quite likely that you will find some unusual sights this Sinful Sunday when you push the lips below!

Modestly Waiting #sinfulsunday

modestyablazeboatramp1“Are you sure you read the departure time correctly?” I asked. “There’s no other cars queued up in front of ours!”

modestyablazeboatramp2“Yes, the guide book says two Car Ferry departures to the island every day,
10 a.m. and 2 p.m.” Hubby replied, as I waited impatiently in the shade.

modestyablazeboatramp3“Well even if we are 15 minutes early, I would have expected to at least see some seamen around!” I said as I walked up to the boat-ramp.

modestyablazeboatramp4“It always comes down to semen with you doesn’t it?”, Hubby exclaimed as he checked his watch.

modestyablazeboatramp5“Not semen!” I shouted back. “I said sea-men . . . sailors . . . you plonk!”

modestyablazeboatramp6“Oh goodness, they’ve just started the engines . . .you don’t think they heard me shouting, do you?” I whispered as I scurried back to the waiting area.

And then minutes later, more cars suddenly arrived behind us, just like clock-work, as I sat . . . innocently of course . . . in my seat in the shade.

You will find lots more Sinful fun this Sunday by lapping at the lips below!

In a Modest Stile #sinfulsunday

modestyablazestile1

Whilst I’ve always been a city-girl at heart, I do enjoy a stroll out and about in the country most weekends.

modestyablazestile2

It was still quite mild for this time of year as Hubby and I set off on our favourite ramble yesterday afternoon, so I decided on just shorts and my waterproof jacket . . . in case of showers. Oh, and my wellington boots of course as one never knows about muddy fields and brooks.

modestyablazestile3

“We will have to hurry-on though” I said to Hubby as I climbed the stile from the main road. “There’s another car just pulling-up by the side of the road”.

modestyablazestile4

“No, I won’t take my jacket off . . . not yet anyway. I can hear they’ve got a dog with them so they will probably be racing past us shortly. Just be patient . . .
I’ll see how warm I get after we’ve walked on for a while.”

But . . . if you are as impatient as Hubby . . . there’s bound to be lots of other “jackets-off” at this week’s Sinful Sunday by
tapping the lips below!

A Modest Day at the Building Site(s)

“Have you noticed” I said to Hubby as we drove down the hill to our apartment, “that lots of the building sites we’ve passed haven’t changed much since we started coming here three years ago? Perhaps we should take a photo of them each year to see how they change or progress”.
“That’s a great idea” he replied. “Let’s start tomorrow!”

modestyablazebuildingsite02

So the very next morning, as we set-out to re-aquaint ourselves with the island, we stopped at the first site at the top of the road.

modestyablazebuildingsite01

“Well actually, they are obviously doing some new work,” I said. “Look they have barrels of water and new materials to work with.”

modestyablazebuildingsite03

“But this hasn’t changed at all” he said at the next stop, further up the hill. “Yes, it’s such a shame as it’s right between two nice new houses.” I had to agree.

modestyablazebuildingsite04

“Well, this is encouraging” I pointed out, as later on and much further along the coast road, we came across a completely new building.
“Yes, I think there was just an olive grove here last year” he said.

modestyablazebuildingsite05

“It’s a lovely view . . . and quite close to the beach”.

modestyablazebuildingsite06

“Hopefully it will be a nice new house when we come back next year”.

modestyablazebuildingsite07

But later that evening, as we drove on to one of our favourite tavernas, we came across another site that hadn’t changed much at all since our last visit.

modestyablazebuildingsite08

“Well they have started to add a new level here” I said. “I don’t think all these rods were sticking up like this last time . . . I’d be bound to remember such impressive erections!!!”

modestyablazebuildingsite09

“Anyway, can you come along and hurry up please, that’s someone else probably driving on to our restaurant”.

modestyablazebuildingsite10

“I mean it you know. If you don’t put that camera away, I’m just going to walk on without you! I don’t want to miss out on a table and you promised me a special meal . . . and a nice bottle of wine . . . to celebrate our first night back!!!”

I got my way of course . . . as I almost always do. Well, I’m sure you’ll agree it’s what a lady who’s been on her feet all day . . . traipsing around building sites, stepping over stones and piles of wood and around cement-mixers and cables . . . simply deserves.

And I’m sure you’ll come across lots more deserving ladies, and gentlemen, at this week’s Sinful Sunday by tapping the lips below!
