Blog No.140/Blogmas No.1a
When the month of December approaches us, some of us love the idea but some are totally off the idea of Crimbo joys. For the past couple of years, we have been forced to compromise on our love of Christmas because of social distancing and not being able to see our loved ones when we want to.
I have had a different outlook on Christmas the past couple of years and decided to have an alternative Christmas look to my decorations. I tried it the first year and failed unsuccessfully as it looked like a 2-year-old painting of a Christmas tree.
Then last year I decided to have a 7ft slim artificial tree and dress it in fetish/BDSM items. It worked well but I wanted to do something different again this year.
So I looked on Pinterest (as you do for ideas) to what I could make for myself. So this year I decided to have a wall tree.
Now the cats were very well behaved last year. None of them tried to climb to the top but Tommy did try his best to tap a bauble every now and again when I wasn’t looking. Little bugar lol.
So having a wall tree would be like a picture on the wall but made out of chains. I tried red rope but when the lights went on it just didn’t look right.
After 3 attempts I ended up with what you see in the photo. I am quite pleased with it. It looks better with the lights on than off but I can’t have both ways with the chain effect.
I may see if green matte tinsel will make it look any better but i don’t want to cover or drown out the look of the chain.
For those who will be accepted for an appointment this month, you will see it in person but for now, you can admire it from afar.
My decorations will be mild and minimal. I planning on re-decorating the hallway (when I have time) so maybe next year it will be a decorated Christmas just the way I would have always dreamt of.
The problem with me is that there is never enough time in the day for all the things I have to do. Hay ho I will get them done eventually.
Take care in all you sweetie, stay safe and talk in the next blogmas
Sunday 10th October 2021
Well hello, sweetie…
It has been a while but I have been extremely busy all in all. I really can’t afford to be writing a new blog (time is of the essence) but I would like to let you know about the new additions to my Fetish Dungeon that maybe you can enjoy someday.
The reason I have bought these things and had them erected in my fetish photo studio Is that I want to place them on my shop on Lucy’s Fetish Closet website that I’m still working on.
It is so much fun finding amazing things to show you. A lot of stress and a lot of time is being spent doing all this homework but it will be worth it in the long run.
I have found anything from erotic biscuit cutters to chastity cages or even a full leather heavy-duty restriction bag with an attachable heavy-duty hood to match.
I found out it was better to have the hood that’s not attached to the main part of the sack as then it can be used with the different hoods if need be.
I have found I have become more of a perfectionist with this 2nd website than I have with this one. I know I have not designed this one and it was sculpted by a professional website designer (Thank you, Peter, much appreciated) but I have put a fair bit of content in it.
As it is with everyone, we have to start off at the bottom (excuse the pun), and as we get more confident and much more experienced we can if we wish go on and expand to big and better things.
Don’t worry I am not giving up this website, far from it. This is my early years of becoming a mistress. Without this website, I would not be what I am today.
I can’t believe it has been 14 years that I have been in this industry. As I say we all have to start somewhere and I am grateful for all the experiences I have gone through to get me here today.
One of the things I have learnt and that is patience. Woweee building a website and especially my own has proved that I don’t know when to be happy.
I have been advised to build it basic and then add on to it from there on. I just find more amazing things to ad on. I’m like a child in a candy shop.
As I mentioned earlier, I have become a perfectionist in more ways than one. I know I can not learn everything overnight but I want your experience to be fantastic and not disappointing.
Maybe you come across a small mistake that makes you think I have failed at producing a so-called fabulous website that everyone has waited so long to see.
Being a Lone Trader…
Doing everything on my own is tough. I have learnt many things in these months since I started putting my thoughts into a project but having to trust someone with all the work I have done would be heart-wrenching.
I know I have to someday, otherwise I am going to live a shorter quality of life with many grey hairs (i can see more appearing day by day lol).
That’s business and if we want to be our own boss then we all have to go through it.
I was speaking with a friend the other day and he was telling me about the same worries he had. His were on a much larger scale but still in the same context.
Having to give up a very successful business through no fault of his own. Contracts falling through because of the economy changing.
Then his workers not being satisfied even when he was practically giving them the shirt off his back. In the end, he decided to give it all up and work alone.
Being the only one in your company has its benefits and disadvantages.
Benefits – You can work when you want and do what you want.
Disadvantages – Saying no to clients is difficult in some trades. In the back of your mind, you don’t know when the next job is going to be with you.
Although now it’s catch 22 for my friend. As he is so particular and perfect in the way he does things he has become very popular.
Word and mouth have spread and everyone wants him. It’s great to be in demand but only to a certain level.
There is only a certain amount of hours in the day. Only a certain amount of appointments he can take in 1 day.
Now it has got enough work to cover him for 7 days a week, 24 hours a day for the next 3 months.
Conundrum… Does he take on help or not? That is the question.
I can totally understand what he was saying to me because if I’m not careful I could be in the same situation.
Being self-employed is very tough sometimes. What I am is slightly different. Although if i took everyone that contacted me for an appointment I would be similar.
Lockdown and the past couple of years have made me think as it has done with most of us. As I take actual appointments I need to have multiple streams of income and not rely on meeting appointments.
Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy sharing my skill and enjoyment with all of you but the pandemic has really tarnished it.
Before all this pandemic situation started I was not apprehensive of meeting new clients. Now it’s like I have to ask a string of questions even before I think about inviting anyone to visit me. It’s a must and unfortunately not my fault.
So as you see, my absence on social media has been me sitting around doing nothing as some people tend to think and have mentioned.
It’s been far from it. I have a list of things to do around the house and in the garden etc that I really want to do (D.I.Y is my hobby) but I don’t have the time.
If I do, then the website sits waiting for another day. Trust me I annoy myself. I am more excited to get it launched than anyone on this planet.
As I know what I want to achieve and I know I can do it, I want it launched yesterday. Until it is at a standard that is flowing I will not launch it.
Now I know why e-commerce websites are so expensive to build with professional website developers. Then it is the basics that they give you.
As then I have to have my personal touch to make me mine.
So what you see on this website has been at least 4 or more years of work. Not constant just bits and pieces here and there but it has still taken time.
Mmmmm maybe I will become a website developer once I get over the tribulations of building Lucys Fetish Closet.
There are no links to it at the moment until it is launched. Then don’t you worry everyone will know about it.
Then I will be blogging about how I’m getting only 2 hours of sleep a night because I’m on social media 24/7 lol sod’s law isn’t it.
Well, I think I have gone on enough now with my life update and need to get back to web designing.
Take care sweetie. Stay safe and healthy and talk soon…

Good evening sweetie 😊
I have decided to change my blogs a little. Addressing it as if its a message to yourself seems a little quirky, don’t your think? 😏
So if you have been trying to contact me lately I’m sorry I have not replied or replied as quickly as I normally would.
The website that I am presently putting together is taking up more of my time than I imagined.
Take a look if you wish to but it has got a coming soon page on it. So I can hide it from you until I am happy.
I would like to have a big launch day that will unveil it in all its glory. So you can look through it and let it unleash all the emotions you could possibly experience 😏
It’s extremely interesting but very time-consuming. So if your not web savvy then like me before, I used to ask my web designer “can you change this for me please?” and expecting it to be done in 10 minutes it’s not always the case.
Now I have learnt more about it I am learning to respect him more and when we talk I.T as your call it 😆 (ark at me as if I know what I am talking about) I understand more of what he is saying.
So I do apologize for not responding but if you want to get through to me quicker then please text me and then we can arrange to talk if need be.
Appointments are literally resting on the lockdown rules but saying that when I do resume bookings I will only be taking my regulars for the first couple of months at least.
I would love to take everybody’s appointment but I am still very cautious of peoples were abouts and how much connection they have had with everyone else if you know what I mean.
Sorry to be short and sweet but I just wanted you to know that I am still Mistress Lucy and I haven’t neglected you but if I could lengthen the number of hours in the day to 36 or 48hours that would be very convenient.
So if you can do that for me I would much appreciate it 🤣
So on that note, I will bid you a good day (even though it is not that of a joyful day with the weather) and I will look forward to hearing from you 😊😷🙏
Sunday 1st December 2019……
To many of you, December has come around far too quick this year, not unlike every year.
I can remember feeling the hot rays of the 25th July when it was 36 degrees without any breeze at 2:30pm here in Northampton and all I could think about was a nice cold drink to cool me down. Now all I want is hot soup to warm me up.
This year I am feeling different about December and Christmas, in a good way. I fancied a real tree this year. I wasn’t sure of the type as there are so many to choose from but Tescos had a good range.
I bought it last night to be ready for the start of December to spread the Christmas spirit. Be it a small tree, it is perfect for what I want and where I would like to put it.
I have always stayed with an artificial Christmas tree before but a fresh tree always gives that natural festive vibe and as I am very much into the natural plant way of living I thought it would be very appropriate.
So this December I am going to try to post on my website every day or as much as I possibly can so I can spread the festivities the way I know how to.
Like the youtube community who vlog every day in December, they call it ‘vlogmas’. So I will call my posts in December postmas.
So please do keep an eye open and look out for daily posts. You never know it might become a routine for me. Heres hoping……
