Also in the City but a bit further down :D

I haven't got all-guns-blazing ads up as I'm limiting volume, but it's ticking over OK here and I've noticed the shops nearby are getting a little busier every week around lunchtime. More and more places are opening back up next week and the construction workers have never stopped throughout - I've seen plenty. I cut through Leadenhall Market the other afternoon at 5.30ish and there were groups of City workers standing around with beers like any other week (just not as many) and ditto Borough Market this afternoon.

I think Salty mentioned it earlier, but there are shitloads of tourists too - I've had a couple through the door. I don't know whether they've just arrived or been stuck here for ages, but even outside the Tower there are groups of them hanging about taking pictures and it's been shut for months. Plus a significant proportion of punters I've seen have been key workers of one sort or another :).

Thinking of going back tomorrow but not 100% sure if it'll be worth it are there any other ladies starting up again tomorrow?

I'll be displaying my phone number on AW but expecting those who do contact me to be complete timewasters  ::)
I think it'll be a very long time before I get any normality back. It may be different in different areas, but I have a lot of timewasters call from AW anyway  ::)

Vivastreet I'm not going to bother with until they remove the blurred out services, or I'll have have a lot of morons phoning to ask what services I do and then I'll have to spend time spelling everything out.

I did my first week a week ago and I was busy with regulars and my phone was busy but also got the time wasters and have loads of numbers to avoid in the future. I put a ad on vivastreet and found it was worth it, I Normally only use Adultwork but find I get a few new regulars from viva as some guys don't actually know about AW and often older gents.

Going to do this coming week and will see how it goes, Think unless I get regulars or repeat work then it may be hit or miss. Putting ad up on viva and fingers crossed not to many time wasters , Think I got all of those already the first time I put my number up.l

Not going to do 30 min bookings unless its quiet, Limiting visits too so might put up my rates a bit. Was great to earn some and money.

Great to know if anyone is now using serviced apartments of hotels with success.

I'm mostly outcall only so I don't think things will be picking up anytime soon. I am thinking about booking hotels once or twice a month but using the time to shoot content rather than see clients. It would be good if I could see one to at least cover my costs but not even sure if that will be feasible

As predicted, put my number on AW and 5 minutes later get a silent call  >:( Nothing since then. I'd rather just be quiet than have loads of knobs on the phone.

I tried Vivastreet recently. Absolute bloody nightmare.
You can't mention anything whatsoever pertaining to meetings, services or rates, though they are happy to take your money then immediately disable your Ad for some teeny innocent transgression.

I had 7 days of my phone ringing off the hook, many of them wanting carmeets. :FF

Awful.  Not touching it again unless they change these rules.

 Adultwork keeps me going but yes, I am getting far too many guys not bothering to read my Ad for details.

I have just had, "Sorry, no I didn't read it as I am driving"   ::) (he was, it sounded like an HGV too  :-\)

Yeah like I'll let the human guineapigs have first dibbs at eating the food that's been sitting in those restaurant freezers for the past 4 months.

I have had SO many more timewasters, also, has anyone noticed people coming back and asking you for things you don't do as if because of Covid you would have changed your mind?

I have had a few people trying to low key me into being their text girlfriend too.  Like I give a toss about the painting of the kitchen, ffs!  :FF

Some escorts never stopped.

I may have my first booking later this week - I'll be doing one or two a week max, and only 1 and 1.5 hours.

I'm one of those escorts who never stopped. Low risk area and couldn't afford not to.

I think if you're low risk, not in contact with vulnerable people and careful. You should be fine

Hi pep and I started back two weeks ago and was busy but also plenty of time wasters. I checked that those I saw felt well and had not been around anyone with symptoms. I still kissed, Didn't bother with a mask. Was suppose to work this week but feel rubbish. Had a fever, Sore throat and now loss of smell and taste so I may have caught covid the symptoms check out. With a cold I don't get a fever and aching legs normally and I'm not bunged up enough for my loss of smell and taste to be down to a bad head cold.

But I could of got this from going shopping not necessarily from going back to work. But now I have to isolate and can't get a test either so will never be 100% sure. So during these times there is no way to just say it's a nasty cold or another virus. But Feb last year I had a chronic cough that lasted a month and the same in December.

So now I won't work and feel fed up but I did make enough money to pay my rent and Bill's and if I think that now with more people out I would eventually catch it. So I don't regret going back to work. Just now I need to stay away from people and family.

Why can't you get a test? I'd have to check but I thought once you reported your symptoms the test/trace people would send you one?
