A Cold in Rubber
I have a cold today. BLEAHH
Woke up with a sore throat and stuff nose. Sir is traveling and I am alone this weekend. Had to take care of it myself.
I was chatting earlier and, of course, everyone wanted to know if I was hooded with a cold. The answer is yes. I started the day with an open faced hood (after a LOOOONG hot bath) and slipped into a black rubber dressing gown, gloves, and the open faced hood. Took some strong medicine (which makes me sleepy) and went out to the living room and spent most of the day on the sofa with a nice hot cup of tea and the telly.
After a while my throat cleared, my nose stopped running and I felt good enough to go get a nicer, full face hood with built in gag and pull that on over my face, covering it tightly. The tight rubber against my sinuses actually felt good. The hood has very small eyes and an inflatable gag with a breathe through pipe so I could still breathe through my mouth and I could gently sip my tea.
I felt good enough to change my dressing gown for a corset and dress...a high necked victorian style dress in black rubber but with a tight hobble underskirt so it is more restrictive than the usual victorian dress with loose skirt.
I went back to my sofa and rested the rest of the day. I finally fell asleep on the sofa late in the evening, woke up about 2am and went to bed. Slept well, though and woke up with only a bit of a stuffy nose.
Today I am feeling better, but I think I will stay in my dressing gown for a while. I did put a full face hood on again today over an open faced hood, but it doesn't have a built in gag. So today I shall probably not put on a gag unless I feel well enough to go out later.
My dressing gown (or robe) is black and full length, actually dragging on the floor as it has a bit of a train. Sir had it made for me several years ago and I love it. It wraps around me and snaps closed on the side, mandarin style, as well as being belted. It is different from my peignoirs in that it is a heavier weight of latex, and designed to keep me warm, not arouse my husband...although it does :-). it has fairly loose sleeves as opposed to most of my dresses and my gloves fit under it quite easily. It makes a very nice garment to lounge in.
The weather has been nothing but rain since we returned from the US, but it has been good weather for rubberwear, that's for sure.
I put a few more photos up on the flickr account the other day, including the one above which I think is an excellent picture of me. The day was so pretty as I came down those steps from the balcony outside our bedroom to our private pool.
Well, I am tired now from my medicine and I think I'll drop off for a little nap. I shall write more later
