WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US?

Well, They Sold Me A Rudis

A Roman rudis was a wooden sword, given to gladiators when they had gained their freedom. This is not a real rudis, but more of a child’s toy, although a very well-made one. And now it is my newest pervertable 🙂

I got this at the Gallo-Romeins (Celtic-Roman) weekend event that was held in the small Flemish town of Wervik, that is situated on the border with France, during the first weekend of October. It was a very enjoyable event that is held there every two years. With re-enactments of Celtic and Roman life and warfare. Along with people showing the skills of the craftsmanship, in making artefacts. This is where I purchased my newest pervertable, for the princely sum of 11 Euros. Initially I thought that it would make an excellent OTK paddle, but on closer inspection, once I was home, judged it to be sturdy enough to be used for harder, stand up paddling, as a light to medium paddle. I gave the back of my sofa a few hard whacks with it (bad sofa, don’t do it again) and found that it stood up to serious usage well. I won’t write about it’s size. You can check out the photos below for that. The tape measure shows centimetres and inches.

I think that the blade is made of Beech wood. Not sure what the handle is made of, but it is the same colour as the blade. I tried a few self spanking swats and although I don’t think that it will be nearly as painful as traditional American style paddle, it does have a very stingy punch and was very easy to self spank with, due to its size and shape. There are no splinters, but I might take some fine glasspaper to the blade, to get it really smooth. I might varnish the handle too, to make it easier to clean, between spankers. I can’t wait to try this in a spanking session 🙂

And What Did The Celts Do For Me?

They sold me some Mead.

Mead is wine made from honey. And this mead is delicious, especially for those who have a sweet tooth.

Was There Anything Else To Interest The Perverted?

For the more BDSMy among us, there was an opportunity to have a short experience of being an Oar Slave, on a replica Roman river boat.

And that all leaves me dreaming of a Roman style play session, like the one below, except she can swing the rudis and I can be on the receiving end 🙂

STORM EUNICE HITS THIS BLOG – AND SATURDAY’S SORE SEAT

Storm Eunice

The little Burg, where I live, was hit pretty hard by Storm Eunice, on Friday 18th of February and a lot of damage has occurred. As a consequence of this, I will be working this weekend. The weekend is when I find the time to gather weapons and ammo find material for the three main posts that I do for this blog every week. This will not be possible this week. So please excuse me if the posts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday are a bit more “Bare Bones” than usual. And now back to the regular Sore Seat.

THE SUNDAY SWISHING – AND FLANDERS UNMASKED

Turn That Frown Upside Down

Time To Show Your Face

As of Friday, October the first, facemasks are no longer required in many places, such as shops and restaurants in Flanders. They are still required in some circumstances, including, on public transport or when visiting a close contact professional, like a hairdresser. This rule change does not apply for the whole of Belgium. Wallonia and Brussels region are keeping the face mask rules as they are, for the moment. You can read more about this in the link below

Flemish Vaccination Centres To Remain Open

The decision to close all the vaccination centres in Flanders, on October 15th, has been reversed. Many vaccination centres will remain open until the end of 2021. This is because it has been decided to give the over 65s a third booster shot and the vaccination centres will be used for this, For more information follow the link below

THE SUNDAY SWISHING – AND LAST CHANCE FOR VACCINATION IN FLANDERS

This Was Not The Horse Riding Lesson That She Expected

Get Your First Coronavirus Shot By The 10th Of September

The COVID-19 vaccination centres, in Flanders, are closing on the 15th of October. Therefore, if you are living in Flemish Belgium, you must book in for your first vaccination shot before the 10th of September, if you wish to use one of these centres. You can read more about this in the following link

FLEMISH VACCINATION CENTRES ARE CLOSING

I have no idea what the procedure would be for getting vaccinated after this date, but having been vaccinated in my local centre, I can attest to it being a simple and easy procedure. I would recommend using your local vaccination centre in Flanders, whilst the option is still available

AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN AND IN THE MORNING

At The Eleventh Hour On The Eleventh Day Of The Eleventh Month

In 1918 silence fell across the Battlefields of the Great War or First World War. At Eleven ‘O’ clock please join the two minute silence to remember those, who in times of peace and conflict, gave and still give their service for our protection and safety. Both for those who returned and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

This is especially important this year as many of us will have and are still seeing military personnel deployed in a battle on the home front.
