These are the last of my March questions. I am a bit late in the answer department ,
but better late than never...
Katie asked these.
What does a great day look like for you? Do you have hobbies? How is Grandbaby? Do you ever get spanked for spoiling her and buying her too many clothes and toys?
A great day is just spent with hubby. We are enjoying retirement and love pottering round new towns and villages round us. A nice lunch out, a visit to a tourist attraction, I love a visit to a stately home. Doesn't matter about the weather, just an easy day. Also I love when I visit my oldies and they are well and happy ( as this is not on the cards at the moment, when this happens it is a really good day).
As to hobbies, I love love love reading. It has been my thing since I was a tiny girl and my kindle is my favourite possession.
I also enjoy sewing a little bit. I am not very good at it but I like a bit of patchwork and have made lots of bits for our home and especially grandbaby's room
Grandbaby is wonderful, she is gabbling on non stop, can count to ten, and knows some colours. She too is book mad. I wonder where she got that from! She traces the words with her finger saying da da da da as she goes! The best thing is she is coming for a holiday to Grandma and Grandpa's in June.
We love having her all to ourselves, we are having a wooden play house in the garden ready for her trip, and her wardrobe has a new selection of summer dresses ready and waiting.......and so onto your next question.
No, he is as bad as me, who do you think is building the house? ( I am making curtains and cushions.)
Yes we really are bonkers grandparents!!
Okay now onto Cat's question.
What four people living or dead would you invite for drinks and dinner?
For me the hardest question, I struggled with this one, toyed with having just my favourite authors but decided to branch out as I couldn't settle on just four!
Here goes, first of all I would have my friend Lindy. I fear that in real life our paths would never be able to cross so I would have her and Bear here for this.
Next on the list would be Bradley Walsh, a comedian, quiz host and all round nice chap
Just my cup of tea
Funny, beautiful, sweet, gentle she would be a perfect guest. When I was young I wanted to be just like her.
Gorgeous, hunky, Dom like, he will definitely top it off!
Today's questions are mostly book related so I thought I would put them together.
Have you ever thought of writing a spanking (or Vanilla) book yourself? What is your favourite implement and why?
I would love to write a book. I just can't think of a plot I haven't read! I have read thousands of books in my life time, truly and I cannot think of an original idea to save my life. If I could get started I reckon I would like to give it a go but I really don't think I have the skills for it. My favourite implement apart from his hand is a wide leather belt, no idea why, the thud , the sting , who knows? I am just kinky, lol
EL asks What are your three favourite books?
This is an impossible question. I love so many books. I know I am going to ramble on, it is books after all.....
My most favourite spanking author is Maren Smith. I swear if I read her books in print not on my kindle I would have read the print off the page. Have you been to the Castle?
I love everything she writes. Her Corbin's Bend books almost made me pack a bag and move!!
I also love love love Ashe Barker's trilogies. There are four sets of three and I couldn't put them down.
Deliciously English, sexy Doms and sweet heroines.
Of course I don't only read spanking books, I love mysteries especially Dick Francis novels
Horses, murder, super!!
Of course as a teenager I discovered the world of Jilly Cooper
Who hasn't enjoyed a joyous romp through the sexy scenarios created by this wonderful lady?
To be honest there are so many wonderful authors in the world, I am grateful to all of them. From Enid Blyton in my childhood to my blogger author friends of today I am so glad to share your work.
I have a couple of questions to go , Cat and Katie still to go....
Hope you are all having a great week, big hugs to Lindy, hope you get better soon.
Here are a few more answers to questions from PK, Meredith and Lindy.
Do you have a spanking that really stands out in your mind above all others?
Yes I do. Fairly early on we had a disastrous one. We were not so experienced as we are now and I cannot remember what triggered it but we had obviously been disagreeing about something. There had been no spanking about whatever it was and it was late at night and we were in bed unable to sleep. I said something that hubby misunderstood. It was nothing to do with spanking or ttwd but he suddenly got out of bed and ordered me over the pillows. I was half asleep and not really sure what had caused such a reaction. He didn't back down though and I did eventually get into position. At this point I felt this was an unfair spanking and vowed to show no reaction at all. he spanked and I lay there like a stone until he finally realised he was getting nowhere. He stopped , I huffed back to bed in silence and eventually went to sleep. The next day we discussed it all and realised it had all been a giant misunderstanding. Took a while to get our groove back. I did blog about it at the time and thankfully it has never been quite that bad since.
Do you ever have spanking's that end in delicious laughter?
YES we do, most of the time that is what happens here, lots of giggling from start to finish. Happy spankings are the norm. I hope they are for everyone.
Last for today is my dear friend Lindy.
What is the best part of ttwd for you? If you knew about it at the start of your marriage would you have started it then?What else do you like to do with John now he is retired?
The best part of twwd is the way it encourages us to spend more time and energy on each other. It is automatic now to concentrate on each other. I feel softer somehow when I am in ttwd mode. I don't think we would have started it in the early days. I don't think either of us would have had the confidence in ourselves. Also we live in a small house and spanking when the kids were about would not have been possible and when they were little we never left them with anyone else. Also hubby worked long hours, it would have been unrealistic to expect him to come home and deal with ttwd on top of it. Since he has retired I suppose I should say we like traveling and seeing the world, but in reality I am not keen. I just like pottering about doing the day to day stuff that we have done alone for all our working lives and can now do together. We do go out for plenty of days out and we spend a lot of time visiting the Grandbaby and her entourage. We have been away with friends, and we have been away alone a few times. Also we have spent a lot of time on the house, ( and money !). It is lovely being able to just get up and do what we fancy, at the moment I am planning a new kitchen :)
I am having this range, country style, ivory and wood. very exciting.
That's it for today, still have Cat, Ronnie and EL's questions to do..... Hope you all have a great weekend, love Jan, xx
Hello, thank you all for your questions. I am going to answer a few at a time as I don't want to bore you silly. First up Roz asked these
What is the biggest change we have noticed in our relationship since we began ttwd?
The most obvious thing is our focus has changed. We put each other first in all things. It has been even more noticeable since we retired a year ago. We have the time for the little things. I don't know if much has changed in our personalities. Although I am not a submissive I do like to please, and I am definitely a nurturer. Yes I do fuss around him but I always have, ttwd hasn't changed that and he has always been protective of me. I will say that our children have noticed, especially our youngest. he definitely knows about our kink and openly admits he wants what we have.
Do you ever wish spanking was sometimes for other reasons than fun, such as reset , discipline etc?
Yes I do, I really do but it is not going to happen. I don't think he has it in him to be strict and I have learnt to accept what we have. Let's face it I married him as he was, I loved him then and I love him even more now. Also as he says I am not particularly naughty so he would struggle to come up with real reasons. I suppose he has reined me in a couple of times but it is generally all fun and games here.
Favourite place to visit?
This was the hardest question. If you are talking abroad, I loved the time we spent in Nice and Monaco, maybe Pompeii. In this country while I do love visiting grandbaby my favourite place to be is at home, always.
Abby then piped up with these.
How did we meet?
My husband's best friend worked with my dad and we used to meet at lunchtimes when he was visiting his mate and I called in to see my dad. He asked me out one day and hey presto!
During the spanking challenge which implement do I wish he wouldn't use and which do I wish he would use more?
You win a meal cooked by a five star chef. What is on the menu?
No idea really, my favourite food is toast, lol. However I do like these
a cheesy starter
followed by pasta.
something with meringue for dessert
That's it for today, more tomorrow.
Hope you are all enjoying the Mad March questions . love Jan, xx
Here we are again, it is that time when we all spill the beans. I have been out here for a few years now so I am sure I have no secrets but if you wish to dig a bit deeper feel free to ask away.
To start you off I have a question for all of you. Can I ask how often you read the blogs and do you read the same ones always or do you journey round Blogland on a jolly now and again? Just wondering.....
In case you don't want to ask me anything just enjoy a few of my favourite pictures.
nice position ;)
nice ideas :)
Btw we are still plodding through the spanking challenge, bit of a blip at the weekend but he has used a few more implements ,
more spoons and spatulas ( ouchie),
a slipper (yuk),
another belt (yummy),
and so we are soon to be repeating the choices. I am not sure if we will make it to the end but we are trying, it just seems a long way to go. Roll on Easter...
We have been playing catch up to Lindy and Bear. First off we were poorly, and then they decided to follow our example and have their own bout of the dreaded lurgy.
Now it is day fifteen and we I am pleased to say have caught up to date. I am jolly glad and so is my behind as two a day added to my husband's oh so kind warm up is quite hard on the posterior!
Here we go then , a quick look at my husband's choice of implement and no we haven't repeated any as yet.
The spaghetti measurer, a holiday purchase and long forgotten in the toy box followed by a cute little spatula. I am not so keen on wood but silicon is not too bad.
The nest day brought a dose of hubby's right hand. As he is left handed he doesn't use this one much and he is not as skilled in my opinion! Actually he always says his hand hurts , oh how tragic I hear you cry....
And can you all see the size of that bloody WOODEN jam spoon! Another gift from a friendly blogger, Ami this time. I know there are a few of these gigantic spoons knocking around the land but if you would like to try one just give me your address, just saying.....
I can't imagine why but I am feeling a bit tender today, especially for some reason when I am in the shower. Is that just me or does that happen to anyone else?
Our very favourite implements!!
Oh he loves that blasted ruler,and then lucky me, his thick belt, my favourite. A yummy day..
I don't usually have many long lasting after effects, hubby is quite gentle really. Not so you would know by the amount of squiggling and squealing I do (in his opinion). There are a few slightly uncomfy places on my behind today, lol.
And today we have got there, our fourteenth and fifteenth implements
For Christmas my beloved bought me the lovely leather strap (among other bits that will appear on another day). he started with this and then discovered yet another slightly larger spatula to end with.
I hope you know how much I love you Lindy Lou!
Thank the Gods I am back to one a day from now on as Hubby has been rummaging in the toy box and in his opinion we are only left with the "hard stuff".
Oh what fun! Lol.
To be honest we are having fun, giggling our way through the challenge and in truth six of anything is not too bad, especially when wielded by my Sir.
Hope you are all having a lovely week, Spring is coming in our neck of the woods. The flowers are so pretty at this time of year,
