The Contract


“He’s chuffing what?” Candice Hamilton gaped.

At 18 this in your face attitude of hers might have been […]

Here is the first in a short series of mid-week vintage and retro shots that have a candid or authentic feel about them. This doesn’t mean that they are real, but most of them were included within old Picture Post material.

Obedience The third  in a series of seven reflections on  how the monastic life – not faith – can help us to understand our own lives. Well, this is the biggie, isn’t it? It is the aspect of this thing we do that I struggle with most. I am, to put it kindly, wilful. I’d like to […]

Thanks to everyone who has emailed me and made comments. I have had some interesting correspondence, some of it even on topic; more about that another time. Chross and Bonnie have started posting again, so it’s not the silly season everywhere yet. Vanilla Spanking, to which I linked last week, has a F/F take on […]
