Reeling in the Year

It's New Year's Eve and I've been reflecting on the kinky year that was, trying to come up with an end of year post to cover off all the amazing experiences I've had and the wonderful people I've met.

Unfortunately it's proving a lil hard! And no wonder for I have done far too much this year to try and summarise in just one post. Sure that's the point of having a blog in the first place is it not, to record everything in detail!

So instead I am just going to pull out a few key events in the year, the major milestones in my kink journey for 2009!

Nimhneach (March & August)
I've always had a great time at Nimhneach but these were probably two of the best for me. In March, Caroline, Stefan and I went in matching school uniforms as attendees of St Francis Academy. Topcat was in charge as our headmaster and we held a detailed stage show where he spanked, strapped and caned all three of us, much to the amusement of the watching crowd.

Whilst in August Eliane was visiting and I met Master Retep and Bandree for the first time which made it extra special. It was also the night of my deeply, submissive scene with Zytex.

Meeting the UK Kinksters (April)
Towards the end of April, having been chatting to Abel less than a month, he invited me to come and see Madame de Sade in London with him, Haron and several other kinky strangers. Being the spontaneous type I accepted and a week later found myself downstairs in a Heathrow hotel trying to pluck up the courage to go up and meet Abel, Haron and Niki Flynn.

And then a few hours later having the nerve wracking, but exciting experience of meeting Eliane, Lord Fawcett, Rebecca, Martha, Lady Cavendish and her partner, Sarah and her partner, Pandora, Tom Cameron and Olivia Manners all for the very first time. Those who were there can attest to the fact my nerves exploded in the biggest show of brattiness and playfulness! This of course ended in a sound strapping and caning from Abel on the return to our hotel.

One of the most significant of my kinky milestones!

A Painful Awakening (May)
Starting my blog was the most spur of the moment decision and one of the best things I've achieved this year. I don't know what I'd do without such an outlet for processing my kink. And of course my excitement when Miss Jules pimped it for me!

Meeting Jessica and HH (May)
As neither had been at the theatre in April, due to other commitments, it was not until a month later I had the pleasure of meeting these two, who I now count as very good friends. I remember being both excited and nervous to meet Jessica. Having heard so much about her, (all good!) I really wanted her to like me. As for HH, well I was terrified meeting and playing with him for the first time, but he's a softie really!

Lowewood (July and September)
My first Lowewood in July was great, my first ever full-on school roleplay experience, made even more special by the fact Caroline and Graham the Girl (TM) were there too. But my second one in September was even better. I really got into it, not held back by nerves or not knowing what to expect. I truly felt like a schoolgirl that day, with all the highs and lows of school life. Like winning the Father Smith Cup (YAY) and being the naughtiest girl in the school (BOO).

It was also the happy day I met Scarlett for the first time and I'll never forget the pair of us dancing together on the chairs after dinner to the St Trinian's theme tune!

Winterbrook (September)
Being a part of this blog and managing to write two characters over the past few months is something I'm very proud of.

Discovering my twin (September)
OK, well not twins exactly, but we almost are. Although from completely different backgrounds and professions, Catherine and I hit it off almost immediately. And we think so similarly on things it can be scary, prompting some to call us twins!

Oil Wrestling (September)
Need I say any more? I know it was meant as an anniversary present for HWMBO but honestly I never laughed so much in my entire life. As much at the hilarity of what we were doing and the absurdness of how much I wanted to win!!

Disciplined by HH (October and December)
The real life punishment I received back in October. When I can honestly say I never want to feel like or be dealt with like that again. A real milestone on the kinky journey. And being brought to tears by a simple hand spanking in the snow. The realisation I don't have to be beaten to tears for a scene to be intense.

Spanking Orgy (November)
Eliane's spanking orgy was one of the best parties of the year with all the craziness that goes with lots of champagne, cute girls and central heating that's a smidgen too hot ;) It was so great to have Graham there, as well as so many other close friends.

Fawcett House Party (November)
I cannot give it the dues it deserves in just two lines so if you haven't already read my posts on it you really should (here and here.) Truly the most amazing event I have ever attended. I don't think anything will ever surpass it.

Coming clean (November)
Telling another 'nilla about my kink. Truly liberating. Her interest and support has been amazing and makes me feel very lucky to have such great friends who accept me for who I am.

Art (December)
Posing in the snow for HH, nude. A giant boost for my confidence!

Flogged (December)
The worst caning ever, courtesy of Abel and HH. Proper weals and stripes and not being able to sit down. A fantasy fulfilled.

Of course there are so many experiences and people not mentioned here, but have all contributed to my kinky journey. So thanks to you. And to all my readers and commentators who play your part in helping me process this kinky journey, especially Indy and Paul.

Happy New Year!


Indy said...

The amazing thing is, somehow I think you'll manage to top some of this next year.

Or at least have a lot of fun trying. Thanks for sharing so many of your adventures with us, Emma Jane, and I look forward to reading about many more in 2010.

We may think similarly, but you my dear are definitely the literary twin ;) (The "almost immediately" bit was because I was grumpy and frazzled after 10 hours of travelling the first night we met, and had to be coaxed into being sociable rather than going straight to bed - not because I didn't like you! I'm so glad Abel introduced us - the last 3 months have been a blast.)

And that's so funny that you got the Father Smith Cup - I didn't know that! I was the very first winner, at the amazing boarding school weekend that Jessica and HWMBO organised.

I'm so looking forward to 2010, it's going to be an amazing year.

Big hugs

I'm so glad you were brave enough to come to the theatre back in April - and it's been so wonderful to get to know you since. More big hugs xx

Eliane said...

Well, for me 2009 will always be the year I met you!

Paul said...

EmmaJane, such a busy year, glad that it was so good for you.
Have a wonderful year. :D
Warm hugs,

Very happy to be name-checked here, it was a great evening! Looking forward to catching up on about 2 months of posts now my laptop is fixed & various other issues sorted! Hope to see you at a Nimhneach in 2010, the sooner the better.
