H is for handcuffs and home #AtoZchallenge

I have an affection for handcuffs. I don't mean it in a sexual context. I just like the look of silver handcuffs.

Years ago, I did a road trip with my then husband. The road trip had us travelling to the east coast of Canada. We then took a ferry (yes, including our car) over to the States, and drove back home. It was a wonderful trip.

We stayed in Bangor, Maine for a bit. I went shopping at the local mall and purchased a cute link bracelet. Each link was a handcuff. I still have that handcuff bracelet to this day.

In Las Vegas a couple of years ago, a good friend of mine and I went to the Mob Museum. I highly recommend going there if you'd like to learn more about the mob scene from years past and you enjoy being a tourist. In the gift shop, I bought a pair of handcuffs. They work and come with keys.

On Ashley Bridget's Web site, it sells various pieces of jewellery. There was one that was inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey. I bought it because it said that it would fit a wrist up to 7.5". Sadly, it was too tight on me. It was also too heavy.

Recently, it has offered a couple of lighter version of the handcuff bracelet to its Fifty Shades of Grey collection. I got the thin handcuff bracelet. It fits perfectly. I am wearing it as I type. I love it!

As for the home part, with my blurry vision in my right eye, my manager has suggested that I work from home a couple of days a week. Currently, I work from home on Wednesdays. I am thinking of also taking Tuesdays to work from home. I will start that next week. Well, I would have been working from home anyway next Tuesday. I have a teleconference that starts at 07:00!

More about my eye results in my next post. I get to see my guy on Saturday, so there will be plenty to say!


  1. I love unique pieces of jewelry, CB. I was just thinking about your eye a little while ago...hope the doctors are able to clear up the issue. Working form home will probably help with the stress level. Enjoy the time with your guy...hope he's recovered from his jet lag.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Me, too, Cat!

      My ophthalmologist was helpful and I am hopeful about my health. Here's hoping that working from home will destress me.

      My guy has recovered from his jet lag, which is wonderful news. =)
