Bitcoin

Does anybody own any of this stuff and can anybody please explain it to me in, as Jeremy Irons said in Margin Call, words a child would understand. I mean a sentence or two of low syllable words which I don't have to google.

 You see our son has got some. We were with him in group on Saturday evening and he's got some and so has one of his friends. I didn't like to express my ignorance in front of a few people, although I wouldn't be at all surprised if some of the others didn't understand it either, a more sophisticated version of The King's New Clothes. P appeared to know what it was and said it was still dangerous and volatile even though it had produced mind-blowing returns for people over the past few years. Coming back home in the car I said if it was dangerous, should our son really be buying it but P said he's a big boy now and has to figure out these things for himself, he also said he'd been weighing up the case for buying some but only on a dip. He said he'd talk with our son about it but he wouldn't be trying to persuade him for or against, only that it would be prudent to hold only a modest amount in his opinion.

 I still had no idea what it really was, only that you don't get anything you can rattle in your pocket. I asked him why he would be considering getting some if it was potentially dangerous but he said it was possibly the future of currency and by having a small stake he would be more likely to pay attention to it, like when you buy shares in a company you naturally tend to show more interest in that company or sector. Well I understood that but I still didn't understand what the bitcoin actually was and when he started talking about blockchain and cryptology I lost the plot completely and asked him to start from the beginning and use simple words. My husband sighed and said no point, he'd do it some other time, I wouldn't understand it anyway. Bastard.

 When we got in I poured a couple of glasses of wine and asked him again to explain it and told him I wasn't thick, which was what he'd implied, but perhaps he was if he couldn't boil it down to a simple explanation. He wouldn't do it and said there were other things to talk about and he'd explain it tomorrow and he'd spank me if I kept going on about it. He was joking, worse luck, and I could tell so there was no point me carrying on and we switched to tree surgeons and neighbours.

 I didn't bring the matter up next day but I did have a quick look on Wiki, it didn't help much, I feel like a whole chapter of technology has slipped by me. I would love to drop it out in casual conversation one day that I was thinking of buying some too (even though I don't think I would), just to show him! Or better still actually do it, or make out that I had, that would get his attention, I could imagine his 'What! You did something as stupid as that without consulting me?'.  Might even merit a spanking. Then another one when he found out I hadn't really done it:)

Have a good week.

Leather implements required

Can I be a bit commercial here and put my business hat on.
I'd like to make contact with someone who makes or supplies leather implements, or who has the skills to do so but doesn't currently. Maybe semi retired leather worker or a hobbyist.

You see, I want to add some simple but good leather items to the canes I sell but I haven't so far found a source of supply. So, anyone out there who has a bit of spare time and knows how to work with leather I'd love to hear from you. 

Don't be shy, if you know how to make satchels or saddles, belts or sandals and that sort of stuff I'm sure you could turn your hand to tawses, martinets, straps and leather paddles. 
I love leather myself, its touch, its smell, it suppleness, the way it ages, I still have my original Leatherthorn which is donkeys years old and seems to get better with age.

So if you've got relevant skills and some time to spare, and share an interest in TTWD, why not mail me, in complete confidence, and we can talk. 

Have a fun weekend.

Fitness conversations only

And then only in a positive way, no 'crap' about cholesterol or aches and pains or can't do this, can't do that. It's my husband's latest directive. To me of course. He told me I seemed to know more about systolic and ischemics and good and bad cholesterol and goodness knows what else than our GP did, he joked that it was a relief to go to the doctors to get away from medical talk. Our conversations these days, he said, hardly happen without some reference to health matters which included things that are bad for you or even might be bad for you just for good measure. He wanted to hear more about things that are good for you, more about exercise, climbing mountains, swimming, and nice food and drink not rabbit food and green slushy drinks.

I started to remonstrate but he cut me short, he said he knew I was thinking of both our interests but he said I paid too much attention to that side of things and that he wasn't unaware of any of the things I said from time to time and that he was making appropriate adjustments to his living habits and keeping an eye on mine too so there was no need to go on about stuff. I suppose there is truth in what he said, I'm more of a worrier than him and, as he pointed out, you can get so wound up with all the health advice that's around it can have a detrimental effect in itself. So I've got to lighten up, he says, see the half full glass not the half empty glass.

You'd think I was obsessed with health issues from reading the above but I'm not, well I don't think I am, and those who know me wouldn't say so. Perhaps it's just when I'm with P, well after all he is my nearest and dearest so it's only natural I care about him. Anyway I've had my orders and he said he expects to notice a difference or he'll spank me (haha as if that's going to persuade me) but the thing that got my attention most of all was when he said it was what you expected to hear old people talking about. Yep that got me and he'll definitely be noticing a difference in my conversations from now on.

Later in the day I nuzzled up to him and asked what about if I mention health matters in emails or whatsapps, would that still get me spanked? He smiled and said why don't you try it. I haven't yet.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by Hurricane Irma.

A Smile for Today

Sometimes...just sometimes...when I'm standing in a long line at my local post office, or the girl gives me the wrong charge for a package (which I've already checked on my own scale) because she isn't paying proper attention to her job or her customers, I think they could do with chivvying up a bit and I'm sure a spanking would help:)

Have a fun weekend.
