Hello everyone,

As most of you know a group of us English girls have recently been able to get together in our wonderful capital city. We have also been fortunate to have a friendly foreigner in our midst. We were all so delighted to meet Ella, one of our friends from across the pond. However while we all had a great time our darling friend has been very poorly whilst on her travels.

So I just want to say on behalf of everyone in Blogland

Towards the end of the week, I believe Ella is returning home where hopefully she will start to feel better.

Good luck Ella ,

 Hope you have a safe journey and get better very soon

lots of love Jan, xxx

Friends, Birthdays and Baby!

Hello everyone,

When we started on this ttwd malarkey almost four years ago I never imagined that along with all the fun and games and togetherness it has brought to our marriage, that this lifestyle would also lead me to new friendships and meetings with people I would never have otherwise had the chance to meet.

Last Friday however I took advantage of my oldest son's proximity to a fellow blogger and off I went during a visit to them, to meet Rosie.

She is as lovely in real life as she is on her blog, smart, funny, classy and very very nice. I had a lovely time, gosh it is amazing how time flies.

We drank coffee, browsed the shops, and talked and talked.

This meeting has whet both our appetites for more and we are both looking forward to September when we are going to London to meet up with Ella ( yes from America!), Ronnie, Ami, and DF.

Thanks for the fun time Rosie, and I hope today you have a very

                                                                  Happy Birthday!!

We were down to celebrate another Birthday too, our darling little Grand girl is one already.

Dil is poorly still and so for the second time in a couple of weeks grandbaby has come to stay by herself. Forgive me if I am not about Blogland much, it is exhausting, lol
She is walking and gabbling on, and pretty much non stop from the moment she opens her eyes in the morning till we all drop from exhaustion in the evening. I know one thing though

There is a certain member of the household who grants her every wish!  I know who is twisted around someone's little finger alright.  I am not getting a look in  round here, lol. Kudos to anyone who manages to live a ttwd lifestyle with kids about. We are too tired, when she goes to bed, we have barely got the energy for a hug let alone a spanking. I reckon I would fall asleep in the middle of it to be honest,  and after chasing her about all day my "in charge" husband is just grateful for a sit down....

Hope you all have a lovely week, 

love Jan, xxxx

Summer Spanking Days!

Hello everyone,

It is finally and definitely Summer here in England. Now it may not last but it is very hot!! It is hotter here than when we were on our recent holiday in the sun. I am glad to be home and here amongst the flowers in my English country garden, just relaxing and sipping the odd Pimms while I read about all of your antics and Casey McKay's new book, "Claimed" (Yay).

This weather is not particularly conducive to spanking however,
 it is too hot to have the windows closed  ( we are very close to neighbours in our little semi!),
 too hot to get into close proximity to another person ( we are too sticky. lol),
and  too hot to use any energy ( his not mine , I do just lay there and squiggle about like a fish on a hook to be fair).

I am not complaining about the heat though, I am enjoying being lazy and warm.

This morning however I got spanked for moaning about saying I was bored! Hubby says he is not  my entertainer and I need to stop making him feel guilty for watching TV or reading or just whatever.......

He maintains that every evening I complain that I am bored. I am absolutely, positively sure that this is completely untrue......................... maybe.

When he ordered me over the pillows this morning I was not keen to be honest,  I seem to have gone off the whole thing lately. Without a real reason, or some attempt at dominance I am not feeling it, just not feeling it.
I did comply though and a very unsatisfactory affair it was, a half-hearted spanking at best, especially on my part, I wasn't exactly an active participant, couldn't even be bothered to squiggle.

He did make me laugh though when he said his hand was a healing hand -

 to cure my boredom!!

I have to say it didn't feel very healing and I was quite happy to announce I was done and wander stomp off to the shower.

Yep, still grumpy, a few hours after the event, maybe it's the heat, maybe I just need a little sit in the sun with a very nice Martini! I know one thing I don't need and that is another spanking so I will very carefully remember not to be bored tonight. What was on TV again?....

Hope you are all having a great week and for my fellow Englanders, enjoying the sunshine, I think we better make the most of the next few days.

PK's challenge!

Hello everyone,

 Not much to report from the Rose household so I thought I would get my implements out for a photoshoot as requested by PK.

Not as many as some, and more than others I reckon, my favourites are the belt and  the pink spoon :)
 My least favourites are the wooden paddle and that damned ruler :(

Just to say,
if you feel like a spanking just do what I did. I asked hubby to take the photos for me and upload them to my laptop. If course seeing them all in their glory he decided he just had to put a few to use, I think he used most of them at least once or twice.

A lazy Saturday morning, no kids, no oldies, just us.......

Hope you all have a great weekend,  with plenty of fun and frolics

Holiday Shopping and Swatting!

Hello everyone,

After a long wait, hubby and I have decided to take the plunge and go on a jaunt. This is not a lightly taken decision as we are worried about leaving my poorly mum. It  is however something we have wanted to do for a very long time. Family and staff at the nursing home assure us that mum will be well cared for and so with great excitement we have booked a cruise on....

P and O's Britannia

Yes ! really we are off to Madeira, the Canary Islands, Portugal and Spain. We leave on Sunday, I will miss you all lots but some times a girl has got to do what a girl has to do, lol.

Now the decision has been made and the tickets printed, cabin allocated ( A balcony no less) I am so excited I can hardly breathe.

Hubby's ready( actually he is a lot more smiley than that)

I'm ready too.

Now my friends, as you know a trip of this magnitude (and four formal nights) means an extra event.


Can I just say that I am the most spoiled wife around, my husband has been on board (pardon the pun) with it all. I have some lots of lovely new dresses including one very similar to this

  Imagine someone a bit chubbier and with short blonde hair ;)

He too has had a some bits and pieces,  including ......

My husband decided this was one of the things he NEEDED for our trip and when we were wandering around a large department store he came across the perfect one, or so he said.

"Come on", he said . "Next stop the dress department. Again. Lead the way!"

I sauntered off in front of him and then....

"Ouch!!, you did not just flap that at me in here" I hissed.

"Yep, just practicing, after all this is coming with us and this shopping lark is fairly boring. "

Blushing, funny enough I didn't find anything in there, escape seemed a better option, lol. I think this retirement lark has gone to his head,

 and his hand. 

On the plus side I have packed his case and there is nothing made of wood in it. I reckon he has nothing but his hand and that belt available to him.  As  they are my favourites all is well, now, how daring will we be on that balcony I wonder.......

I will be awol from Blogland for a couple of weeks, though I am hoping to be able to log on somewhere if I am having a quiet moment.

I hope you all have a lovely couple of weeks, with or without spanking as you wish
much love 

Jan, xxxxx

The Secret and Not so Secret life of a TTWD Wife!

Hello everyone,

I am pinching an idea from Meredith who wrote  a touching post about the secret ways in which we embrace our lives as ttwd wives. It was so true, and  I find it so joyous to be one of this secret gang.

I love lots of aspects of this life, our togetherness and my absolute joy in being with my husband. We are newly retired and loving it. Every morning we wake with this expression

We count ourselves to be so lucky to have got to this stage of our lives, so many of our real life friends don't seem to be truly happy. I find myself wanting to tell people, spill the beans as it were. I haven't and I won't but oh gosh don't any of you want to tell everyone the secret?

We have always held hands, but now we really mean it!

I love his stern looks, whatever they precede ;) I love calling him

I will admit to forgetting this is a secret phrase, by now everyone we know has heard me call him it, it pops out more often than not.

My favourite phrase, not so secretly said, but with it's own special meaning.

Like Meredith I relish the secret touches, the odd swat here and there, that special whisper.

 Who would have thought that at our age we would all begin to lead these double lives , me and my band of merry friends in Blogland. I feel like a secret agent, lol.

 How lucky we are, to have each other to share with and our amazing husbands and partners to live this lifestyle with. Long may it continue.

And secrets!

And then there is

There are times of course when the secret is not quite so secret as quite ably demonstrated by my darling daughter in law to be. Last night we were out at one of my son's gigs. Did I mention what a brilliant Guitarist he is?  Oops, I digress...

We were chatting and dil was wearing a new dress.

"Look at you, all dressed up in your new dress with it's own little bondage belt" I said. "It's really cute"
( Not exactly like this, but similar)

"Well" she replied. "At least I don't wear a necklace with "Spank me " written on it!"


 Yes I do and yes she has seen it and giggled about it. I wasn't wearing it last night though. 

"Ssh" I said, "Keep your voice down, don't tell the whole pub"

She just laughed, the cheeky girl.

"Anyway" I said " I love your belt, I like a bit of bondage, handcuffs and leather and stuff you know..." I trailed off, and at last she was rendered speechless.

So my friends, are you sure your lovely secret life is really and truly as secret as you think?

I hope you all have a great week,
