I did something I haven’t done for ages today and went clothes shopping. It’s definitely winter, and that means more sweaters. I found a jumper dress that I really liked and then realised I have one from last year that I haven’t worn anywhere near enough.
But since I seem to be having a bit of a coat-and-nothing-else phase, I did find a new one: beige, but closes right up to the neck. It buttons down to below the waist and only ends around the knee, so with that and a pair of stockings I can look completely dressed and no-one will ever guess there’s nothing underneath. I know that’s not exactly exhibitionist, but I’m already looking forward to it.
I saw Mel at the run today and she reminded me about Monday, and also reminded me about the house rules (ala “no clothes in the apartment). I don’t know why but just giving in to them is a bit of a thrill.
Then when I got back home I had a note from the Alison in the flat opposite asking if I wanted to come over for tea and cake tomorrow morning. She left her number on it so I texted a reply to say that would be nice, mainly because I’m curious.
“We were all happily married but we loved the attention we got when we were out together. That night we decided to take it to a whole new level.”
“It was made very clear that we would never have sex, and I would never touch her body, but that she preferred to remain nude in her own home. These were rules I thought I could live with.”
The drinks with Ellie were nice, if I still feel a bit sad. She said she knew things are never the same when a friend gets into a relationship because you don’t see them as much, but she hoped we could carry on doing what we were doing, and that she’d try to make it up for me by whatever dare I was going to come up with. It was odd that it still sounded a bit sexual, though, because I would have thought her new man would take up all her energy. I wonder how far things have gotten. (I didn’t want to ask.)
Anyway, we only got together for a short time because she was going on to see some friends. She did invite me along but I wasn’t really feeling up to it.
I had a briefing with Tim today so I went for as short a skirt as I dared and stockings again. I get the feeling he’s really into that kind of thing. I just wish I had my own office so I could “accidentally” let an extra blouse button pop open while we were talking. It’s funny, because he seems quite flustered when I’m talking to him, like he’s never even talked to a girl before!
Then I went out for a quick lunch with Ha and she said Lily had given her a good grilling over the night I stayed over (because it was obvious to tell I had). Apparently Lily also quite liked the suggestion that I move in with the two of them and do chores to pay my way! I said I could guess what kind of outfit I’d be wearing while I did them, and Ha said what made me think I’d have an outfit? She’s such a flirt even and I think the fact that I’ve never shown even a bit of interest in her (or maybe only the smallest bit) just encourages it.
My Pilates teacher told me I’d improved a lot late tonight! And that I seemed to have quite a bit of energy. I think it’s because I’m suddenly friskier than a cat on heat.
I spotted the guy opposite walking around in the nude again when I got home, so I stayed clothed. They don’t even bother closing the curtains now. I kind of wonder what they think me coming over there might have meant now.
I also got a message from Ellie and I’m meeting her after work on Friday for a quick drink.
