in-call


The last few months have been an interesting trip into the journey of renovations. There have been renovations I’ve organised before of course…. plenty of times. There was the granny flat extension back in 2002. Updates at Dulwich Hill in early 2008 including a full bath renovation and updates at Castlereagh St, Haymarket due to the over-tenanting problem at that apartment block before that one was sold in 2013.

This time it’s a full house update. I had commissioned a building and pest report back in August this year that revealed some rather bad news. I guess it is to be expected on a >100 year old house, perhaps though I underestimated the extent of the work that needs to be done

The report revealed anobium borer and termites in the floor/sub-floor back in August this year. On a domestic scale, it’s a large job. I am renovating the kitchen and bathroom (these appear to be last done on a budget back in 1979- truly ghastly). Have fixed the roof, new plumbing, sub floor ventilation, pest control and new floor boards. New bathroom and kitchenette for the granny flat. Painting, rendering. Quite a long list. Expecting the house repairs will run over till March 2018.  Essentially for now, I’m living on a building site but it sure will be nice to have a fixed up home. Why am I telling you this rather personal dull life stuff you may ask? Well, its rather all consuming for a few months. It might help someone else down track. It’s costly, messy and driving me a bit nuts.

Anyway, I thought I’d flick some renovation pictures up of the updates as they happen. Please free to make any comments or give advice. I’d be the first to admit I’m a rookie at arranging the scale of this sort of project and appreciate any feedback.

In the pictures below you can see the new window and doorway installation. Roof repairs. All the junk that’s coming out from the stripout that I have found Dave from airtasker an absolute godsend as he goes to the tip for me and dumps stuff regularly as it gets cleared. The hot water heater, so much smaller than the old Rheem and me trying to remain sane ha ha.

Hello sexies! So good to feel the warm weather again. Yeah! Today is the December 1 and WOOT Summer is officially here!

A bit has been happening my end, so I moved my incall back to Dulwich Hill in March. I’ve moved a few times in the last three years but this time it’s the final stop. (I think…hopefully…LOL). Had a few adventures along the way and in the end I’ve decided that life is happiest when it’s simple.

I had a great trip to Hawaii back in June and came back from that experience wanting to make things.

The Festival of Sex Work is such a cool event, seems to be lots of stimulating forums they even have an art exhibition. CL9S4TeVEAA9f1i (2) I made a piece for it too, his name twitter tag is @elchesty and he looked like this. CL9T52GUkAEtfPh
The other Sex Worker gallery creations (pictured) were really great and offered an opportunity to think about the diversity of the community, expressed through art.
Very thought provoking and inspiring, open to the public when the FoSW is on so everyone can see and be as pepped up as I was.

And having been motivated by FoSW,  I have started another small business making natural products. It’s been a heap of joy and fun exploring the creative aspects of putting that together. I have had a few sales from that now so I am feeling actively encouraged.CUoQRuWU8AEcjqL.jpg

Next year, the majority of my time will be invested into making and marketing my natural products. I will have a new website for it and I really want to have a market stall eventually. CUZPwiWUkAABFWoI will still be doing SW but it will now be my second job rather than my first. CVFWan8VEAAXwQII’ll try to keep my photos updated on twitter so you can see how I am looking and what I am doing but I may not be as present on social media as I have been in the past. My regular clients know how I work anyway, bookings in advance through automated availability calendar on my website so nothings changed there at all, if you prefer send me a DM on twitter or email and I can book it in for you.

I will be doing a flyover trip to Antartica NYE so that’s very exciting and will spend a couple of weeks down in Tasmania and Melbourne in late January. I may add a couple more days on in Melbourne. It will be a sort of mixed holiday primarily to visit a great old girlfriend while I am in Tasmania. If you are keen to catch up hit me up.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my clients this year for your valued friendship, understanding and support. Your kindness really does create a series of positive ripples in ways we may never know.

And I would also like to thank the awesome Sex Worker community for your time, your inclusiveness and your support. It blows my mind how many diversely talented individuals make up the industry.

Have a great safe summer season.

Be kind to each other x

SexytaryHope you have had a fun, memorable and rewarding 2014!  Gee, once again the silly season is almost upon us.

If you are so inclined I am keen to celebrate with you and am available in Sydney till the 19th December outside of overnight bookings on :

4th Sydney

9th Canberra

11th Terrigal

15th Sydney

and a Xmas party on the 19th

I will then be on holidaze and back again on the 12th January. We are hoping my new website will be ready by the end of this week -at any rate it will be live before Xmas and very pleased about that.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my clients for their great company, support and business, sex workers for their awesome community support and generally wish all a very joyous and safe Christmas.

So I am getting all modern here at KTE and getting a new website built. It’ll be live before Xmas

It’s my 3rd website now. Embarrassingly enough *blush my first website played “year of the cat”! Playing music on your website was very much the thing back in um, 2008-9. Perhaps it’s a good idea to THINK before taking up fads lol!

Its kind of fun checking out the http://www.waybackmachine.org and seeing how things morph over time with technology changing etc.

I’m very excited about the new site, I’ll have some new useful features, like an availability calendar and will be able to manage more updates myself once I skill up on using the tools. After seven years and for only the second time I will also be increasing my rates from 1 January 2015 (will be grandfathering old rates for regular clients  whom have used my service and supported KTE twice within the last twelve months).

In the meantime, you can still contact me through the booking form, by email at karenofsydney@gmail.com and I’ve even embraced! SMS 043 171 4069.  Never a good idea to text a SW “u free now” or “what yr rates? Send a pic” though, unless you’d like a similarly moronic response lol.

Hope to see you soon.

Just like any other relationship the right sex worker for one person, is not always the right sex worker for another. One thing you should not compromise on is that your escort should have all the qualities you need. In my experience the client usually knows the right escort when they meet them (just like when you find the right partner in life) and is going to be comfortable to go ahead with a booking. I have an affinity with my clients, they should feel comfortable, and feel that I understand what they want. You need to feel very confident that your escort will do the best job and you need to feel safe in their hands. Once you have that feeling, you will know you are in the right place with the right escort giving you the best possible experience, hopefully me. Whether it be a massage, blow job, a full sexual experience or even company, it has to feel right.

 

It’s winter time and a wonderful season to spend time warming up.

Thrilled to announce
I am visiting the beautiful city of
Brisbane
23 – July – 27 July

Booking is easy: just drop me a line at karenofsydney@gmail.com or SMS 043 171 4069

Ahhg, this turns out to be a retrospective blog. Anyway I hope you had a Happy and Safe Easter. This year I was invited to accompany “The Country Gentleman” to the Easter Show and also spend a couple of days together. TCG and I have known each other for 15 years now and we have formed a pretty comfortable understanding of each others needs. So, yeah, it’s a good relationship with one of my oldest and loyalist supporters. Anyway, I’m a bit of a Town Mouse, I have always lived and worked in the city apart from six months in far north Queensland. This was a time when I clearly took leave of all my well honed urban senses and lived and worked up in the beautiful and *sigh* VERY remote Lizard Island.

I’ve been to the Easter Show loads of times but I was really looking forward to having someone with a country background as a guide for company. TCG is a bit of a posh character, he is also a rooster sign in the Chinese Zodiac and a Leo Sign in the Western Zodiac, all good fun with me!

So it was decided we spend most of the day looking around the animal exhibits and in the evening have dinner at the Members Stand. We started off at the dog obedience and that was pretty fun with different breeds of dogs running relays. We booked our window table at the members stand for dinner and caught the extreme motorbike rider trickers while we were there, that was pretty exciting. A fair bit of a practice and talent with all the funky manoevers those boys manage.
We spent a bit of time in the poultry exhibit, checking out the ducks, the homing pigeons, the batum hens, the rooster, the geese and in all the excitement a couple of chickens even laid eggs. Mmmm, ok.
We had a look at the sheep and I was impressed with the enormous appartus modelled by the rams. TCG mentioned that they can mate with 150 ewes a month. Wow *eye boggle* (check out the photo) TCG knows all about this kind of thing, lol.
We enjoyed a drink at the Cattlemans Bar this is where I observed the costume country people like to wear. So the men like to wear cotton blue and white striped shirts OR check shirts sometimes with hats and good walking shoes or boots. The ladies don’t seem to mind to wear check shirts either. There sure is a definative look about country people stylin.

We watched the bulls and the fancy paces set by the Australian Stock Horses. We spent a bit of time at the Woodchopping. I had a bit of trouble picking winners there though, as some of the woodchoppers were under different handicaps. For the most part we were watching the under 21 woodchoppers whose proud dads were giving them encouragement from the sidelines often time competing themselves in different events.

We made our way to the the Members stand for dinner and watched the presentation by R.M.Williams to the champion Australian Stock Horses and riders. There were a group of preppy country youngsters near our table. They looked rather sweet I thought. We saw a rodeo and every one stood up at Dinner moving presentation of the Australian National Anthem by a female singer of the Australian Police Band.

What a wonderful easter! Thanks very much to TCG and we spent a couple of lovely nights together having a really relaxing and sensual time.

There are lots of Jersey Boys but only one Frankie Vallie boasted a recent review of Frankies’ Australian Tour. The Masseuse (TM) invited me along to Frankies show at the Lyric Theatre the other night to see how true this statement was? It had been a show I had been looking forward to seeing for many months.

Anyway, the day arrived and after TM and I got ready we decided to test out Sydneys Light Rail system from my place to the Casino.  It had been a gorgeous sunny day that had changed to a bit overcast. I checked the weather report, Mmmm 70% chance of rain. Ah no worries, no need for a brolly or so I thought. We just made it around the corner to Campbell St Tram stop before the first pitter patters came raining down on our heads, threatening to wreck my blow dry. Bah!

Anyway the light rail was a treat. Fast and easy. we sailed past the Capitol Theatre, Cyrils Deli, Paddys Market, The Exhibition Centre and finally to the the Casino. We had a bit of time so we had dinner and a couple of drinks there before making our way to the Lyric Theatre.

TM and I decided the Frankie Valli audience tended to be an older crowd than we had seen last month at the Opera House. Again, we were asked not to take photos so I don’t have many to show you. Now Frankie is 77 years old, that is quite an age for a performer and we wondered what kind of show we would be seeing?  

The lights dimmed and the band took the stage.  Mmm impressive, an Australian six piece brass section. Ha! I LOVE horns! Two guatarists and a base player. One keyboardist who played other instruments and a drummer. Four backing singers and Frankie. Wow, this was going to be a great show with an rich sound.  Frankie himself is this tiny, frail, old guy but gee what a voice.  In the first couple of numbers, we wondered if he was lip synching because his style is he scarely opens his mouth but yet there is this incredibly powerful sound. In any case we saw him reach behind and play with his pick up a few times and we realised we were in fact seeing a live performance.

Frankie Belted out all his old hits and told a few jokes too. No doubt about it he is an engaging performer. Frankie recounted when Tom Jones is on stage he gets pelted with womens panties and this little old guy taking a forlorn glance around his own barren stage ha ha.  I would have like to have helped out but had at the last minute decided to go commando. Frankie then encouraged the audience to throw cash and credit cards and buy his cd sold outside in the foyer ha ha.

We were treated to quite a show “Walk Like A Man”, “Rag Doll”, “Grease”, “Sherry”, “December 1963”, “My Eyes Adored You” and the 1967 solo hit “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”. It was a top performance by a real showman. Thanks to TM and we made our way back to Haymarket to once again thoroughly enjoy an intimate evenings entertainment.

In touch with the ground
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
Smell like I sound I’m lost in a crowd
And I’m hungry like the wolf
Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I’m hungry like the wolf

Duran Duran

Mr Groover invited me to take a trip down memory lane the other night to a time when I
was just a youngster and enjoying the sounds of the 80s and er, well *some* of the fashions of the time.

So, Duran Duran were back in town for a one off Sydney concert and I
was lucky enough to go.
The plan was to have a feast at the Nine Dragons restaurant an iconic China Town restaurant before heading down to the Sydney Entertainment Centre and that’s just what we did.

In order to avoid the crowds, we got to the Entertainment Centre early and caught the the support act. We were hoping for a great band or a top singer but it was a rather bizarre choice of opening act to support Duran Duran. Two DJs spinning vinyl donned the stage playing some funky mixes that became quite boring after ten minutes.

Mr Groover leaned over and reminded me of some of the way more fun activities we could have been doing instead of putting up with that dull *yawn, sigh & eye roll* duo.
Most of the details can be found here at http://www.karenthompson.com.au/services just in case you’re unsure of what we were talking about :0)

Anyway… to cut to the chase, finally Duran Duran appeared on stage and the old hits kept churning out mixed with some new tracks that were not too bad, I guess. I really enjoyed the commentary between songs that the various band members gave about their times in Sydney, they really connect well with their audience. So, it turns out that Duran Duran were the first act appearing at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. And they talked about going to various Sydney eighties venues like the Cauldron and the Manzel Room. I never got to those places myself, I suppose at the time, I preferred to hang out at slightly more cliquey places like The Hip Hop Club, Patches, The Exchange Hotel, Plastic Inevitable at the Playground, The Trade Union Hotel, The Site, The Taxi Club and Propaganda. There I am in the black and white shot (c/- young S the fantastic photography student) in the late eighties in Paddington, have a look at the hilarious alcohol prices.

The Duran Duran audience were a mixture of young trendies, wearing some 80s revivalist fashions, think net and neon colours (thankfully we didn’t spot any bubble skirts or shoulder pads) *cringe*, middle aged flunkies, not to mention a brigade of blue rinse senior citizens that came along for the fun of it.
The band are still in top form and the lead singer Simon Le Bons vocals were just as terrific as in the year 1981. I loved the show and the encore was a exciting finish with the band performing the eighties hits “Girls on Film” and Rio.
As the song Rio was winding down the concert, Mr Groover wanted some winding down himself at my inner city apartment.

I have just made a new addition to my working tools, a rather good new playstation. Mr Groover had made it known he wanted to be my very first special guest to try it out. We made a speedy exit and headed off to feel our way around my lovely new equipment and I am delighted to report to you it all works out splendidly.


Gaa! moving– so I’ve decided to move.
In fact, there’s lots been going on at KTE.

Mmmm here’s a lesson learnt, it seems it’s important to make oneself somewhat accessible to prospective clientele so after many months of renting hotels and serviced apartments for escort work I’m permanently moving to the city.

This is probably the most excellent decision I have made all year!

So, as every escort knows neighbours can be a bit of a problem when doing private sex work. Currently, I live in inner west surburbia where stickynose neigbours spend way more time outside their front door than inside of it. Most of my neighbours love to have people over and there is always a fair amount of foot traffic in common areas. Some of them have religious pics on their doors and I imagine someone like me offends their sensibilities as I flounce down the stairwell, all made up, perfumed and coiffed in 5 inch heels, tight low cut dress, wheeling an overnight bag, making men happy, working my own hours, leading an interesting life and generally having a great time.

Anyway so I’m going. This is what my lounge room looks like right now. Bah!

Thank you to everyone who has kept in touch and supported me while my advertising has been down, I suppose I’ve felt like I’ve been living in a self imposed exile a bit and it meant a lot to me that you made that effort.

And I’m very excited about the future!
In very early December I should be installed in my new place which is close to Central. It’s been about 13 years since I last lived in the city (Ultimo) and it will be great to enjoy that lifestyle once again.

I booked a fortnight trip to India at Xmas, it’s been 18 years since was last there and that was a two week backpacking holiday. This will be a very different adventure. I’ve never been to the west coast and can’t wait to see Mumbai and Goa.

Finally, I’ve just done new pictures and they should be up around the same time, that’s pretty exciting!

Move on up!
