Normal Service Resumes!

Hello Everyone,  I hope that you all had a merry Christmas, All that preparation and the actual event flies past. As John worked every day we seem to be back to normal very fast. He has time off soon though and our family are all descending for a few days. We will be celebrating again then.

Today has been our first day without  company and isn't it funny that the first thing we  embark on is a spanking. We were laying in bed this morning and discussing what we would do today and we both just grinned at each other.

Now as you all know I am pretty good, there are not many punishment spankings in the Rose household but I definitely feel that we have lost our way a bit.  Over Christmas  ( and actually before, I know there have been a lot of things that my darling could have picked me up on, attitude, whinging, and he was fleetingly cross when I left the electric blanket on all day as well as all night. Oops!. This morning however he must have had his rose coloured glasses on . He seems to see me as this:

I myself feel that I have been more like this:

Oh well I thought, this is going to be a picnic. 

"You can choose today" he said.

"Choose what ?" I replied.

"Two implements, off you go, get moving"

I never choose, never. I actually didn't know what to pick. " Can I choose your hand as one?"

"Very funny my sweet, but no. You are keeping me waiting now, not a good idea"

Rummaging through the selection I finally settled on a very gentle paddle and a long ruler that he likes. I avoided the wooden paddle and the new leather paddle that both hurt like billy oh

"That paddle is pathetic, you never even feel it. I guessed you would pick that", he chuckled.

He started with his hand. I couldn't help it. I started complaining straight away. "Too hard, too hard". 

"Good grief, I have hardly started, keep still, you are barely pink yet!"

I think maybe because my spankings have been few and far between I felt it more than normal. I was quite frankly a pain in the a**. 

He moved onto the other implements quite quickly, warning me that if I kept on dancing about this would soon turn into the sort of spanking I wouldn't like. There wasn't much lecturing at all, in fact he said that  
as I had been so good he was struggling to find things to lecture me about!!

I certainly wasn't going to remind him of my misdemeanours, so I kept quiet and still, squirming and squealing until we both collapsed in giggles and cuddles. A great start to the day.

The thing is, while this morning was fun I am a bit worried that we have so lost our way. Is he not noticing because he is busy or is he not  noticing because he doesn't want to? I am happy with our life really but there are times when I wish he would pull me up on things. I think that with me still being so poorly all the time he gives me too much leeway. 

Later on we talked and I tried to let him know how much better I have felt today, both of us have been happier today actually, so hopefully this is the start of a return to where we were before I got so poorly.
Maybe I would some times like him to be a bit stricter and when I said this to him he said

" I find it really hard, it is not my nature and also at the moment it is not what you need. I can't be spanking you when you are in so much pain already!! It's ridiculous."

He loves me and I love him so ...............

This is what I told him today,  I am so lucky to be married to this kind man, I will love him forever.

I hope you all have a great weekend,

Hello  to All my Friends in Blogland, 

I would just like to thank you for all your support over the last few seriously bad weeks in the Rose Household. I am so excited to report that yesterday morning my Doctor rang me to say....


 Yes, no cancer, what a relief I can tell you and what a great Christmas present. 

This was me shortly after I put the phone down, okay okay, not so cute or hairy but  definitely as cheery. 

Last night we had our closest friends over for dinner and I may have imbibed a wee bit too much of the fizzy stuff. have a feeling I might just get let off today. ( Don't tell him but I am not sure I want to be let off so I may just be a naughty girl today anyway. Our celebrations will take many forms I am sure ;)  lol). It's funny how a bit of good news makes you feel so much better, more normal. And isn't it interesting that for all  most of us
normal means we quite like a spanking!  Funny world we live in.

Thank you all so much, I hope that your Christmases will be everything you want them to be, 

I know tomorrow is stressful for every woman , so to all my spankable pals, be good or else..... . 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Everyone

Love you lots

Christmas versus Submission!

Hello everyone,

 I hope you are all well and happy. Now I am sure that many people have written about this very subject but here is my take on it.
Christmas versus Submission!

Christmas is a joyous time ( when it flipping gets here that is!), maybe like this
Okay not like that, I just liked the picture,

perhaps these though
and definitely one of these

Yes, all the good bits, well I could have shown vast amounts of food and alcohol,  family celebrations, snow ( if that's where you live and love), lots of joy all around. A few carols and a little (or lot) of Religon thrown in for good measure.

BUT   How the bleeping h*** do we get to the above scenarios in a gentle submissive way. 

HOW does anybody remain all yes sir, no sir when at Christmas WE have to take charge in order for the joyful bits to happen.?

It seems to me that for the majority of men, Christmas just happens miraculously  ( and I actually think that the real miracle was supposed to be something entirely different).

Most men go to work each day  whilst many wives are quietly, or maybe even loudly getting the Christmas preparations done. We make decisions at this time of year that maybe at other times we would defer to our men or at least lead them to think we were ( oops did I say that out loud, how unsubmissive of me, good job he doesn't read this blog).

Well I don't think we are not being disobedient but we simply do not have time  at the moment to ask.
Submission flies out of the window when you are looking after small children, Christmas shopping, (has anyone asked for a budget or have we all just done as we liked .
 How many of us have thought just for a fleeting minute,

" I don't care how much  I am spending  it's Christmas"

By the way how many presents do we have to buy?, bleeping loads that's how many and tell me again how many does the average husband buy?   

 ONE  !!!!  

How much food does that same man rush out to purchase to feed the world and his wife. Umm...


(Maybe he does the booze run if you plead inability to carry it, and he fancies a drink over Christmas).

Also can husbands not write ???? Can I just say Christmas cards!! Mine writes


Relatives coming to stay? What fun, no extra work in that is there?

Also I HATE dislike wrapping , I am hopeless at it, truly hopeless.

Christmas is taking over women's lives everywhere. I am a fairly very organised person but it is nearly beating me this year and my kids are grown up, returning like little homing pigeons  for a few days.

We have all spent how ever long since we started ttwd learning to let go, giving him more dominance, submitting to his wishes and I fear that this is flying out the window. 

Have we got time for this lark, there are simply too many decisions to be made, too much to do and really is anyone's husband going to micromanage help us out?

Isn't it hard to switch from being Superwoman  to little Miss Jolly and Submissive when he walks in the door? 

What happens when we are tired and snappy after yet another day of the endless run up, I'll tell you what

and from there it is only a hop and a skip to

Hm,  maybe that is what I need , how about you?

Actually my preferences aside, I think it is jolly unfair that lots of these are going to be doled out when we are doing our best to make Christmas fabulous for our families. I can't see many of us getting away unscathed between now and Christmas Day. 

Maybe December should be declared a submission free month, just a thought.............................

In all honesty in our home, while it is true he only does go shopping for my pressie and he doesn't think to write a Christmas card my John has actually done pretty much everything else with or for me. This is more a general rant than an I blame my husband moan. 

Life is pretty good here,we are all set for a family Christmas. I had my scan today and get the results in a week or two. Thanks to all of you who sent me messages, I thought of you when I was laying on that bed today.Love Ya,

Hope you all have a good weekend, may it be spank free or not as you so wish.

love Jan,xx

P.S. Finally I haven't have got how to do the crossing out thing. lol

Could you Please Cross Your Fingers.

This is just a quick post to ask you all to cross your fingers for me on Thursday. Most of you know (due to my constant whining) that I have been a tad poorly lately. A couple of weeks ago after many visits to my so patient G.P. I had a scan. Well now, too quickly in my opinion, I have to have a C.T. scan.I have not been given a specific reason for this, just a vague "in case"!! The consultant who did the other one has requested it. I am grateful really but still..........

Now I am a teensy bit scared as it is ten years almost to the day since I had that dreadful disease the first time. So I would dearly love to go from this

to this

I hope all of you are all having a good time at the moment, nobody in trouble, no refusing to submit,  no walls, no masks, no suckiness, just lots of love and good behaviour ( okay so I am having a dream like moment ,  blame my nerves!!)

Please keep your fingers crossed just for a moment on Thursday. I am so grateful to have your support.

lots of love


P.S. I really wish I could find a spanky post to post but that seems to have disappeared again, Life is a pain in the a**.   

On the good side . Yay, it will be soon be Christmas. Bring it on. :)

A Secret Message!!

A few weeks ago it was my birthday and my husband decided to buy me some "spanky" presents. I did have lots of lovely gifts that I could show to everyone but we had a little secret gift giving ;)

Firstly I was given this lovely item:

Yes, we have tested it, oh my goodness I think this is almost as bad as that bleeping wooden paddle!!! How generous John is. 

Then I opened this:

This is a lovely silver necklace with a little ruler charm and a disk that says "spank me!". I love this so much, I wear it every day, When I am teaching I turn the disk round , the back is a plain silver disk. No one has commented yet but do you know what I don't think I care if they do. He really is the best husband a spanko girl could ask for.

( Hubby got this from if you are interested)

Lastly I got this:

This bracelet has a secret message. Can you work it out? It took me a long while but I finally guessed it.

                                             Good Luck, I am interested to see who gets it first.:)

(This came from

 This one I don't have to worry about, no one even suspects what this one says.

I hope everyone is okay, we have had horrendous flooding in our area, usually we miss everything, Its all upside down here...............

Am hoping life returns to normal soon.

Have a good weekend everyone,

love Jan.xxxxxxx

I've Named Him!!

Hello everyone, this post is just to introduce you all to the most important  man in my world.

 Who could that be I hear you ask?

Of course it is my beloved, my darling husband. Up until now he has only been known as hubby. The other day he asked if maybe I could see my way to giving him a name, after all he is a real person not just any old nameless husband so.............................

Now the name I have chosen is                              "JOHN".

Why John you ask, well there are lots of famous Johns, so is he named after:

A great man, but no, not this one. So maybe it is this one that gets my attention:
Sadly husband cannot sing a note, tone deaf he is!!

I thought and thought , do I like a bad boy, mm maybe so what about this gangster chappie:

Now that is a lovely dark brooding look but I am far too much of a good girl to tie myself to a  really bad boy.

My search continues far and wide..................

I have always fancied a pirate..
Yes I do like a pirate, but somehow he is not for me( I fear I am too old for his malarkey!

What about a King, perhaps that would sum up his complete dominance....

Um, perhaps not that King John :(

I know  I could try a cowboy:
This one is for Sunny, I did have a picture of this masterful chap spanking Maureen O'Hara but since the computer has come back from the shop it has some adult content control and I can't post a spanking picture. Rotten computer chap must have seen my blog and decided to play a joke on me !!

Back to my search,

 I will leave the cowboys alone. Not many about here by the seaside!

 And then I thought , when I was a small girl I learn't to read . Now , the books I learn't involved a couple of children and ever since I started to discover the world of fiction I think I have always been searching for my very own partner. 

Have you guessed? ( I imagine you stand more chance of guessing if you too learn't to read in England with these very same books. Yep, here he is, my very own partner in  all things:

As a tiny girl I always wanted to meet my opposite number. As an older girl I have realised that my wonderful husband of over thirty years has a bit of all of these famous John's.

 Okay, he will never be president, even though he leads this household.

 He serenades me in other ways than Johnny cash  ;)

Maybe he will never be a gangster, but I don't fancy a life of crime.

A pirate? well I would sail the seven seas with him.

He is my king, and he treats me as his queen.

A cowboy, well he does have a leather belt..... lol

He is my everything, my  John .

  Now all I have to do is remember what I have called him .    

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, 

lots of love Jan.xxxx                                           

P.S. Sorry about the colour changes ,blogger is not helping me.

Misunderstanding and an angry Spanking!

I think we have hit a teensy bump in our ttwd road of life. Owing  probably ( no definitely(and I still can't do the crossing out thing)) due to my ongoing, never ending, whining and moaning about being in pain. T hings have





Get the drift?

Well last night after reading one too many blogs about all of you lot whom I am becoming quite jealous of, all plodding on quite happily. Before you say it, I KNOW . We are all different, we all go at our own pace,all that stuff that I generally trot out to everyone else. I also know that not everyone is having a high old time but my reading was quite clearly selective.

Just let me say this is not my general mode of action. NORMALLY, I love it when I read about someone's success story and fret about someone who is struggling. Last night however I didn't, and thought maybe we could have a little chat, just a weeny little conversation.

Now I will admit that I had maybe (okay positively)  been a bit quiet (sulky) FOR GODS SAKE WILLIE TELL ME HOW TO DO THE CROSSING OUT THING AGAIN PLEASE.

When we were snuggled up in bed and were sort of dozing off I just happened to say,
" I have been blogging today and I feel that whilst everyone else is jogging along nicely we have come to a standstill"

Now I don't think I was accusing or loud or anything really but ....

Hubby went bananas ( not like him either actually). He was very defensive and started yelling that he felt under pressure. He was a bit accusing and then started in with attack. For once I was speechless so I decided to shut up and say no more. He didn't even give me chance to explain before he leapt into action and turned the lights on and started rummaging in his toy bag.

Bleeping H**l, he spanked me. After a drought,  he spanked and in anger too. He lectured and accused and was definitely very cross with me.

This was so rare and by this time I was so angry I refused to make a single sound ( and bloody hard that was too as he used the wooden ruler after a dose of his hard hand).  I will never know how I managed to say nothing , don't get me wrong I know I could have stopped him at any point but I just lay there over those flipping piloows and took it SILENTLY.

When he stopped saying sadly "
This isn't working either is it ?" I flounced off to the bathroom and got into bed without saying a single word.

Now all this is unheard of in the Rose household.

Things were a bit tense this morning to say the least, but as we were visiting a nearby city for the day I knew we would talk on the journey. 

Well we did and it turned out to have been a simple misunderstanding. I think whilst he thought calling a halt to it all while I was in so much pain was him being kind and caring, I had thought it was him being uncaring and inconsistent about ttwd!!

I think he has been putting up with my moods and blaming illness whilst I have been worse to try and get a reaction.

"Oh the webs we weave when we practise to deceive"

Basically, served me right for being a pain in the neck,

Today we have promised to talk more and he is going to try to be a bit more consistent. One thing he is going to do is text me more when he is at work. He works nights and I am struggling with long hours alone at the minute. I feel happier tonight and hopefully so does he.

Incidentally ,and this is so embarrassing, there are no pictures to lighten the mood of this jolly little tale because I am working on the PC and not my notebook. This is because OMG I have had to take it in to be fixed because , well actually I don't know why or else I would have fixed it myself. I had to sign in to my blog in front of the male child who is endeavouring to fix it for me to show him the problem. Be thankful none of you use your real names. I wanted to sink throught the floor. Hubby is going to collect it for me. By now the poor boy knows all my secrets. Believe me I was tempted to throw it away and buy a new one.

Hope everyone is well and happy.
love Jan.xx

After The Party!

What a day yesterday turned out to be.  After worrying about whether or not to join in, after all who was going to come? How embarrassing would it be if no one came? Let's face it a party with no partygoers would be a bit of a flop. Who would eat the cake? see the decorations? have a drink?  play the games? and then......

Oh my goodness every body came, the party started early with a new visitor, a new friend to play with, Hello Rosie and welcome .. my friends then came, some I have known and loved for a while, some very nice newcomers whom I hope will come again. The dancing started:
Okay, that is a bit sedate for us, but  hey I liked the picture and I am a ballroom dancer. The party whizzed by so fast, I couldn't keep up with Blogland ( and neither could blogger, I think he went to one too many parties and had one too many drinks!). I even had some latecomers, probably because we all live in far flung destinations of the world.  I am so glad you all came. Maybe I celebrated a teeny bit too much, and drunk a teeny bit too much as a friendly little spanking was happily given this morning ( alcohol consumption is limited here as I do tend to give orders when inebriated).
Who else I wonder woke up like this:
Of course I may be a little worse for wear, all danced out ,but still I will always remember my manners and I would like to say the biggest
to BONNIE from My Bottom Smarts for organising Love our Lurkers  in the first place.
Also to all my partygoers ,thanks for coming , lets do it again soon. After all ,everyone is welcome here anytime.
Lots and lots of love Jan.

Tuesday, 12 November 2013


Welcome to everyone who is reading this blog either for the first time or as a lurker. Are you one of these:

If you are please do not be afraid to join in today and say hello. You do not have to give your name, you are always welcome to comment on my blog.
My name is Jan and I have been married for over thirty years to a kind, gentle man who spanks me , mostly for fun, both his and mine. Occasionally he spanks me just a bit more , to make his point and rein me back in ( although I am basically a good girl ;)
We live beside the seaside in England and in real life no one would suspect I am  spanko, but I AM and guess what I LOVE IT, I really do and now my husband loves it too. Yay.!!

I don't blog every day or even every week. Sometimes I blog a happy tale , sometimes I have a good old moan. That's the thing you see, no one minds what you say and without doubt I have made some wonderful friends, even if I don't actually know any one's real name. :)
I did discover a fellow blogger lived only an hour away and we have met up. (Hi Ami) A great day. So who knows what will happen if you just click that button today
Feel free to ask me  any questions you want to, I hope that if you are reading these blogs today you are either living, or considering living a similar lifestyle to us.  If so, be brave, you don't have to remain one of these:
 Come on, dare you, say hello, come and visit, you are very very welcome here. In fact these are for you:

I was a lurker just a year ago and starting my blog and talking to everyone has made the transition to this wonderful life so much easier. There is always plenty of friendship,  oodles of advice, lots of love and buckets of sympathy. There really is nothing to lose, its a win win situation.
                                                            PLEASE, JUST SAY HELLO
I hope you all have a lovely day visiting us all, don't forget to visit my friends, if you click on the sites on my blogroll you will be able to visit Wilma, Ronnie, Ami, Roz, Rogue, Terps, DF, Callie, Mick, Cat, Sunny, Zoe, PK, Meredith and many more. Honestly there are loads of us. We are all over the world and we all live this lifestyle differently. We all have one thing in common though ( apart from spanking, lol)

Freedom of Speech? Not in this House Babe...

Things have been quite quiet since arriving home from our lovely Mediterranean Jaunt. We are back to work and caring for the oldies, all of whom didn't miss us one little bit I might add! I have only had one spanking since holiday and that was more due to the stress of homecoming than my general naughtiness so all has been  well  in our teeny corner of the English countryside.

Yesterday I was a little bit, shall we say, testy or maybe temperamental, or even downright annoying. At least in my husband's (he who is always right) opinion that is. I suppose I knew that I would not get away with my wonderful attitude for ever but gosh you would think I could have lasted a bit longer without retribution than a measly couple of days. I truly thought he was too busy too notice my mutterings and sneaky gestures and general cheekiness.

This morning over breakfast, I informed hubby that I was going to run some errands for my mum and step-mum and he very calmly answered

Not yet you're not. We are busy

No we're not, what are you talking about?

Funny girl, you know exactly what we are doing. Are you showering first or after? Your choice  but you better get moving.

Silenced, I slunk off to the shower. When I arrived in the bedroom, he wasn't in evidence but he had laid on the bed his chosen implements,  a leather paddle, our new toy ( show ya later) purchased on a giggly whim in a tourist shop on holiday, and the bleeping wooden paddle :((
This is where I made a teeny weeny mistake

                                  I hid the paddle

I pottered about and hubby appeared, saying nothing about the mystery of the missing implement, although he couldn't have failed to miss it as it his favourite. I just got the  the usual orders to get into position.

I obediently leant over those lovely pillows he had so kindly placed at the end of our bed and awaited my fate.

I see the paddle has done a disappearing act,  no problems, I think the crop (nasty, black, stingy, always leaves marks) is about due an airing.

I do hate that thing and it very rarely comes out so finally the penny dropped, I was  really in for it.

Okay wife, why are you here this morning? (accompanied by a few, far to hard to be starting off with, smacks)

Because you are mean? ( See how my mouth just runs away with itself)

smack ,smack,  smack. Try again babe. Wallop

Okay okay, ouch ow. I was a little bit mouthy, maybe a bit  cheeky.. Ow ow ouch

A bit? Too much of everything I reckon, too many gestures, too much cheek, too much attitude.
Also and I believe you made this a rule to help you to remember. You forgot to turn the heating off AGAIN.

The spanking continued, for a while, with much wriggling and jiggling and kicking ( got a nasty mark on my leg from the new implement cos of those kicks :(((   )

Do you think you could refrain from the attitude and the smart remarks, do you think this will help. I hope so.  No more smart mouth!!

What happened to freedom of speech?    OUCH No No, not the crop .God that hurts......

Freedom of speech, he laughed, laughed I am telling you. Never heard of it, especially in this house.

Infuriating man.

Can I change my mind about ttwd. because my a** is really hurting and you are annoying me. (Still squirming, was this spanking ever going to end?).

Not a chance my sweet. You brought this dd malarkey to me and here it stays. Love you babe.

Oh, well can you stop for today, I am really really sorry. I will turn the heating off, I will be good. love you too.  Please please.........

Eventually after a lot of spanking, a little cropping (Sorry I don't know the technical term) and a bit of giggling with the don't know what, I was suitably repentant  and hubby was appeased :)

Gosh it's lovely afterwards. I love him, he loves me. I don't want to stop  dd ever, he doesn't either.
We are getting the hang of it. Generally I wish he was stricter, it's the lecturing I need, he wishes I was naughtier ( no chance for a while, I am rather tender at the minute), so plod on we will.

Now as I mentioned earlier our new implement.  Whilst on holiday in a little Italian souvenir shop look what we spotted at exactly the same time. It was  wooden kitchen implement shaped like a little long paddle. it is very cheerful, painted with lemons. Hubby took a picture of it resting on my rosy cheeks  but as you can see I refused to inflict that picture on you so here is the innocent thing all on it's own.

I doubt very much if it will last long as it is fairly flimsy. I have no idea what it is actually for but it came with a tea towel so it is kitchen orientated . Any ideas?

 I hope everyone in Blogland is well and happy. Hope you all have a good week.


P.S. Mick has finally blogged if  you are interested. About time too sir.  x

Renee's Regency Rave.

Captivating,   Jolly,   Funny,   Romantic,    Heartwarming,    Wellwritten,   RECOMMENDED   

Once I started Renee Rose's latest novel "The Reddington  Scandal",  I couldn't put it down.

She had me laughing from the first:

"Go and stand in the corner  until you learn not to be such a selfish cow"

I don't want to give away the plot but I do want to recommend this book, five stars all the way.

The novel is the story of Lord Teddy Fenton, whom we fleetingly met in "The Westerfield Affair" (Another great read btw) and his foray into the marriage stakes with the beautiful, innocent Miss Phoebe Fletcher.

Teddy is handsome, debonair, a regular hottie by today's standard. He has a reputation with the ladies, despite which he is also charming and sweet, loves his sister and is wonderful to our dear little heroine.
Phoebe is an innocent, pretty, gentle and from the first she recognises Teddy's charms! The only question is how long will she take to succumb to said charms and how much trouble will she get in along the way?

 Our heroine rescues her soon to be husband from the clutches of her sister's husband and in doing so, rescues herself from the same man's evil hands.

Upon marrying this rakish playboy Phoebe soon realises that the marriage in name only that she had hoped for is no longer on the cards. Adventures ensue, a bat rescue, an unexpected dip in the pond,    spankings of course, and some very steamy sex all come about as this endearing couple get to know one another.

Of course the path of true love never runs smoothly, misunderstandings and threats cause problems but  hey this is a love story...

Thanks Renee for letting me be part of the advance team, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am honoured to have read it first.  I am however not a book reviewer so apologise if this is not up to general book review standards! I am a better reader than writer.

 I have got my fingers crossed for the next book. Is it maybe Wynn's story? here's hoping.

Scaring my HOH

This is the tale of a night in the life of my Hoh.

Once upon a night time in a small seaside town lived a  kind and unassuming man. He was married to a sometimes sweet, sometimes sassy wife who loved him very much ( even whilst she was trying his patience ).   Recently  his wife of many years had come to him with ideas of dominance and  spanking, hard for such a gentle man to absorb. However wishing to please his wife, this dear soul had begun to enforce rules with a hard hand and an even harder paddle.

 Life was good, there were after all not many rules in his house and his wife was a good girl on the whole. (Okay I may be exaggerating here, but it is a story!)

He worked hard for a living, I cannot say what he does for a living,....

Now this particular night had been fairly uneventful until nearing the end of his long arduous evening when a distress call was put out by another of his workmates. Being near to his friend  he rushed to his aid.

A drunken lout indeed, frightening all and sundry. this gentle hero stepped in, called the local law enforcement and endured the violence of the rowdy  lout until  an arrest was made.

At long last he thought, it is time to return to my wife and snuggle up for a few hours until day break.

Now one of the few rules our hero had set for his errant wife was not to fall asleep with the lights on, wasting  precious electricity. On arriving home his heart sank to his boots, lights were indeed blazing from the upstairs windows.
Oh well he thought tiredly,  "That's a good excuse for a spanking, tomorrow will have to do though, sleep first. I am too tired to lecture my sweet tonight".

He spent a few moments mulling over the events of the evening before making his way upstairs to turn off the Blackpool illuminations ( a famous light show in England) and cuddle up  to his beloved.

Low and behold our poor husband had to turn once again into .....

What did our hero find?  Yes you have guessed it, his poor wife  passed out on the bathroom floor!!
Not much scared our Hoh but the sight of his wife spark out , yes that could do it in a heartbeat.

Scooping her up as she mumbled to him, he muttered  "What a way to get out of a spanking wife, being  so sick ."

Returning her to bed  he informed her that  she couldn't lay there any longer as he needed to use the
facilities himself!

 By the time said gentle chap had  sorted himself out and returned to his darling it was to find her snuggled down and fast asleep. Climbing in beside her and  up, realising that his wife was fine, his job and friend were  safe, and his spanking hand was not required  he finally did what he had wanted to for a while

Please note, as day break returned , his wife recovered well enough to try the patience of a saint, let alone a knight in shining armour and yes, his trusty paddle was called into use once again. :((
Hope you are all well and being good, or maybe a little bit bad depending on your fancy
love Jan.xx

Punishment, Presents and Peculiar Persons.

This is the story of my very ordinary week, just an ordinary everyday, probably dull, to you dear readers, week.
At the moment I am having to keep a diary for my occupational therapist ( as the next step in my pain relief treatment). Now for a start I am hating it as I feel that I am just moaning if I am poorly and honestly how fun is her job going to be reading that !! Also and here is the problem how can I actually write what happens in my life.

 I decided I would write a ttwd diary for the week .

However I can't show it to Sarah can I? Do you see my dilemma? Anyway here goes.


Today is hubby's day off. We always go out and catch up on our banking, chores for our various oldies ( we have five in various different places and with differing needs :((   )  and have a snack somewhere together. Today though I am awaiting  my fate for Thursday's ,and I am quoting here

 "petulance and pouting and generally being a pain in the **s" .

 Who me? I am sure you cannot believe it can you?  I duly put a very girly frock on and  pretended I had forgotten. He had not:(

The day was lovely, the evening ...
Seriously, I am sure I wasn't that bad but I think his memory is defective, my beloved made it seem as if I had committed  a heinous crime:
I don't know, you have kept me waiting so long I have forgotten.
I still think you should let me off, there ought to be a statute of limitations or something saying if you have to wait more than a day you are automatically forgiven.
I couldn't stop with the attitude though, my mouth seemed to have a life of it's own.
I still think you were wrong to go this long blah blah blah.......
 At this point the talking stopped and the sorries began shortly after.
I don't imagine you need the rest but can I just say I DON'T LIKE WOOD.  
Monday night was however much more pleasurable, harmony restored. 
This was a truly lovely day. I stopped with the attitude, we spent the day without worrying about anyone else just each other and my bestest, wonderfullest hubby bought me a
And guess what was inside  ...( no, nothing naughty, get your mind out of the gutter)

It is a beautiful bracelet, he surprised me when we were walking though a shop, he spotted it and hey presto next thing it was on my wrist. I am a lucky girl. I am sure you can surmise how grateful I was......
An ordinary day, housework, cooking and then in the afternoon I met a very peculiar person. On the recommendation of my occupational therapist and a friend of mine I met a hypnotherapist.
A nice unassuming chap, friendly, kind  and sure he could help me. At this point I maybe should say that I am just a teeny bit ( oh okay massively ) sceptical. I insisted hubby was around and  said hypnotist ( I'll call him Harry) started on his endeavours. First came the chat, I was good at that bit incidentally.
Then came the relaxing . Oh Christ I felt such a fool, I did however manage to relax my body just fine. It was my brain that had the trouble. Also I was panicking that he could make me give up all my secrets ( he didn't look the spanking type to me!).
I could not count backwards from 100 without coming out of my relaxed state, so I threw a wobbly and the poor man had to deviate from his normal script and try another way.
Eureka, I was there, open to his sleeping and pain free suggestions. He also taught me some self hypnosis techniques and armed with this newfound knowledge I was returned to reality.
So far so good and then he threw me a suggestion that showed he clearly had no idea about the type of person I am. He suggested for pain relief:
 I was totally and completely gobsmacked, I am the last person on the entire planet to ever use an illegal drug. My husband fell about laughing, I am not sure whether that was at the suggestion or the look on my face  but this when  I told my kids they laughed their socks off too..
That night however, I employed my new abilities and slept for SEVEN hours instead of my usual three or four in two goes so I love Harry, mad ideas aside.
 A normal morning at home, behaving nicely pandering to a tired hubby,  teaching in the evening and home with poorly legs to try out my talents again. It really works. I have now decided to see Harry again, for weight loss this time. The damn pills make me put on weight so I am going to try my hardest to get it off  somehow. Sleeping  like a baby I don't even notice when Hubby rocks up in the middle of the night and joins me in the bed. ( Normally I am awake and chatting when he gets in).
I decide to fill the cupboards with groceries ,  shop for, and visit my mother. Usually on a Friday I do nothing as I am recovering from dancing so who knew.? I am on the mend, at least for a while.
I spent all afternoon reading blogs and decide I must post.
I now feel like this:
I love this feeling I get when I use those techniques , My hubby says I look like this:
 Long may it continue I say.
So can I ask
Have you ever been hypnotised?
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, I will use my new found talents and hypnotise you all into it  if you like. Maybe Harry can hypnotise us all to be good,      or maybe not..........................
love Jan.xxxxxx
