i arrived very early on Thursday morning and it would have been after 2.00am before i got to bed. i slept through until 11.30am, showered and shaved all over my body, applied make-up, had breakfast, dressed and then went out to the shops. Firstly i re-activated my Toronto cell phone and then bought some groceries. Next i phoned Lady Dynah and arranged to meet her the next day.
By now it was early evening and i was hungry so i went out again to a small Jazz Bistro that is on the same block as my apartment but on the opposite side of the road. This is how i was dressed for the day and how i went out in the evening. The picture was taken in the apartment i was renting.
At the Bistro, i was greeted by a lovely young girl at the door in a delightful and pretty mini-dress and i complimented her on it straight away and noted in particular that the unusual shade of orange in her shoes matched one of the flowers in the print of her dress. This exchange made her very happy and she sat me at a table where i could see the piano player and the bar and most of the restaurant – it was one of the best tables in the place. The barman, Daniel, came over to ask me what i would like to drink and i decided on a glass of red wine and ordered my meal a the same time. The music from the piano was lovely. Daniel asked me if i was staying for the show and i replied that having just arrived from Australia i was tired and would not stay to which he replied by asking me how long was my journey, where in Australia did i live and so on. i felt very comfortable in this place and enjoyed my meal before going to collect my coat as i left. The girl on the coat check was of mixed race with gorgeous black curly hair and she too was very nice and we chatted for a while as i pulled on my coat, again mostly about my journey to Toronto and why i had travelled there. By now it was 9.00pm and i was very very tired and so returned to the apartment and straight to bed.
i slept late on Friday, not getting up until 9.30am but feeling fine and in the time zone. i showered, shaved, applied my make-up, dressed, had breakfast, deal with important work related emails and then called Lady Dynah to make sure we were still on for our planned girls afternoon! All was good and i set off for the Metro to travel the half-hour journey to her house. i was dressed exactly the same as on Thursday because i had not brought too many clothes due in large part to the difficulty i had in getting them into my suitcase without my wife noticing. i arrived at Lady Dynah’s house at 1.00pm. It is a small 3 bedroom basement apartment really and it is full for she now has two of her 3 children living with her (her eldest daughter has moved out on her own) as well as a couple of her elder daughter’s friends who are sharing one room. It is all very compact and cosy but does not lend itself for the BDSM activities that Lady Dynah enjoys and so our afternoon had to be entirely vanilla.
We went to a ladies spa run by a Filipino friend of Lady Dynah’s and we both had manicures and pedicures and i also had my eyebrows trimmed and shaped. The girl who did my nails and eyebrows is also a transgender girl and she was very nice and offered to help me and show me around Toronto when i come next time, giving me her phone and email details. We spent the entire afternoon in the spa, chatting with the owner, her staff of three and some of the other customers. Again, i felt very comfortable and at home, thoroughly enjoying being out and about as the woman i really am.
After the spa, we went shopping for some Filipino foods in a shop nearby and then headed back to Lady Dynah’s house. By now it was bitterly cold and even though we both had very heavy warm coats, scarves, gloves and hats, the temperature with the wind chill factor was -20 degrees and there was nowhere out of the wind while we waited for the bus.
Once we got back to Lady Dynah’s, her younger daughter and one of the two friends were home. We had a hot drink to warm us through and then set about preparing dinner – or rather Lady Dynah did. i often get to do the cooking but this time Lady Dynah insisted on preparing a Filipino dish for dinner. We chatted while dinner was being prepare and Lady Dynah told me about her love life which is currently non-existent and she has just finished a relationship with one guy because with her work, having all her family with her in Canada at last and the pressure of them all living in the tiny house was all too much. Apparently this guy she has just finished with has taken it really badly, is madly jealous and has found my blog and is also now following me on other web pages and is giving Dynah a hard time over me. However, Lad Dynah is a tough cookie and has put him in his place and he has backed off a little. However, when i got home i checked him out and found that he had indeed subscribed to my blog and my Facebook page!
After dinner which was lovely and washed down with red wine, i headed back to my rented apartment. It was now 11.00pm ad the temperature outside was even colder and i was shivering by the time i got on the train. However, i warmed up on the train and only had a short walk from the station on Queen St. to my apartment. It was after midnight again by the time i got to bed.
On Saturday, again i woke a little late, around 9.30am, showered, shaved and applied my make-up as usual before dressing and making myself breakfast. i felt really feminine with my red painted nails but realised too that i had to go out and buy nail varnish remover because i would have to remove the polish before i went to the conference which started the next day. i also needed some make-up remover wipes and so once i had finished breakfast, i went off to the shops. i bought all of the items i needed plus a pair of patterned black panty hose that was reduced in price to a bargain $2. Next i found a coffee shop and stayed a while enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the world go by. Yesterday, i had invited Lady Dynah to join me for dinner and needed to check if she was available for she had to work and was not sure whether she would be finished in time. So, i set her a text message from the coffee shop to see if she was going to join me. The idea was also that she would be able to stay the night with me in my apartment and so be able to play a little BDSM.
By now it was mid- afternoon and so i went shopping again to a wig shop that i know that is close to my rented apartment here. i was looking for a short feminine style, similar to the one i wear a lot but in a redder colour. i tried on several, some wavy, some curly, some straight and finally decided on one which feels lovely, the hair is so soft and shiny and it is more my colour. However, i did not wear it out yet because the people in the apartment block now know me with the original wig which was a gift from Lady Dynah last year and i wanted also to keep wearing that wig for Lady Dynah.
As i walked back to the apartment, i had to pass the Jazz Bistro again and decided that it being Saturday, i had best book a table for two just in case Lady Dynah could make it. Unfortunately, after i got back to the apartment, Lady Dynah phoned to apologise and tell me she could not make it because she was working until 8.00pm. i had booked a table for 8.00pm and the Jazz show started at 9.00pm and the restaurant liked to have all of the food served before the show started. So, i was going to be on my own. i phoned the restaurant and changed my booking and instead of a table for two i was given a seat at the corner of the bar, up against a wall but still with a good view of the stage and the musicians.
So, now i needed to get ready. i shaved again and re-applied my make-up before slipping into one of the two dresses i bought in Santiago in Chile shortly before Christmas. This is how i looked before i headed out to the Bistro.
At the bistro, there was a different girl on the door, the same girl who had taken my booking, and she greeted me very nicely and the coat check girl remembered me and welcomed me back. i felt wonderful! I was led to my seat by the bar and Daniel, the bar man also remembered me and welcomed me back. i ordered a Toronto Blonde – a cocktail based on gin that was invented by Daniel. It was delicious! To my right, there were three other seats at the bar that were empty but all reserved. A guy came in and was given a seat not next to me but the one two seats away. However, he decided he would sit right next to me! i knew i looked good and sexy with my short skirt riding high up my legs and wondered if his decision to move alongside me might have been influenced by my appearance and whether he was going to try and chat me up. Well he did strike up a conversation, general at first like asking where i was from because he had heard my voice ordering my meal and then the conversation moved on and began covering all sorts of things including the music, the quartet we were going to be hearing in the show, travel, work and many other topics. i was enjoying his company very much. Our respective meals came along with a bottle of red wine (Argentine malbec) that i had ordered myself and then the music began. The Don Thompson quartet put on a terrific show, great music with Don himself on the vibes, a guitar, a bass and a drummer. At the interval, my new friend got up to go to the toilet and returned saying that he had found a table for two that was empty and with a great view of the quartet and would i like to join him there which of course i did. i was now sat up against another wall with him to my right, boxing me into my space. Over the interval we discovered that both of us were married, we shared our names and our professions (he is a pilot for Air Canada and based in Vancouver and was only in town for one night). In addition, i had told him that i had grandchildren and he was asking me about how i managed to be a mother and to be successful as a geologist and i told him that when my children were young my husband and i were living in Africa and the Middle East and were able to afford a nanny. He clearly was convinced that i was a genuine woman. He also then quite casually and within the context of our conversation began talking about sexual relationships and the need to have a physical as well as a mental attraction. He went on to say how much he was enjoying meeting me and our conversation. It was at this point that i realised he might be looking for something extra from me and my mind began to think of how i might escape his attentions if things developed further in that direction. But i need not have worried. He asked if he could take my photo and i said of course as long as he allowed me to take one of him and that he promised to email me both pictures. Here are the pictures, first me and then my new friend, Peter.
The music continued after the interval and then when it finished we carried on our conversation back at the bar along with Don Thompson and the members of his quartet, the barman Daniel, the coat check girl, the girl on the door, and the restaurant owner. i had another Toronto Blonde and persuaded Daniel the barman to give me the recipe. By now it was midnight and Peter, my new friend, had to leave for he was to be flying the following morning so we said our goodbyes and left separately. i had thoroughly enjoyed my evening and felt especially pleased with myself for my voice had not given me away the whole night chatting with a guy who thought me to be an attractive and interesting woman. Also, the bar man, Daniel, and the other staff at the Bistro were all lovely and treated me as a woman. This has done wonders for my confidence at being out and about as Roxie.
