Happy New Year!

Hello everyone,  I just want to wish you all a Happy New Year, let's hope that 2016 brings great happiness to all. I hope you all manage to live another successful year of ttwd with or without the spankings , according to your particular fancies.

When we first started our voyage in ttwd and then our trip to Blogland, never would I have dreamed of getting to know so many people all over the world and then realizing that those people would become so dear to me.

Happy New Year !!!

Merry Christmas Blogland!

Hello everyone.

Just want to say to all my friends all over the world.


I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and a great New Year.  We are very happy as Grandbaby has arrived with her entourage for the celebrations .

Funny how the littlest person has the biggest presents!!

Obviously there will be little or no spanking around here for a bit. This of course is due to my angelic behaviour  (Not the fact that the house is full and if we get a moment's peace it will be to collapse with exhaustion). 

Just wondering..........

This tickled me, sad I know.I have the sense of humour of a five year old ;)

I just want to say thank you to all my friends in Blogland for all your support over the last rather stressful year. I hope you all have a great Christmas. May it be filled with love and laughter and be spank-free or spank-filled according to your desires.

Merry Christmas
Jan and John,xxx

Did You Really Just do That!!

Hello every one,

This is a quickie just to let you know that we are still alive and spanking over here in England.

The title of the post says it all really and I thought this post didn't really need words just a few pics....

Did you really just do that?!

(Guess who said that)    :(

Yep, that's him my Hoh.
( and that's exactly what he looked like just after the event.)

In my defence I thought I was 

a bit on the cute and cheeky side.

 Unfortunately I soon looked like this

as soon as I realized my um...


When did I realize?  I hear you say? 

As soon as I was over those pillows and hubby was walloping my posterior with this

I  don't think he was really cross but oh gosh I did give him a damn good excuse, even if we both had a good giggle towards the end of the jolly good spanking.  Is there anyone out there who can tell me how to keep my legs still?  I really hate  it when he spanks my thighs:(

Question   What ttwd wife clicks their fingers at their husband?

Answer.. A daft one!!

The rest of my life is not going quite so smoothly, ordinary life is blinking hard and I am struggling with lots of stuff. Sigh... I thought by this time of our lives we would be able to focus on each other and the hard bits would be over. I keep telling myself  soon, soon.....

I hope all of you are doing well. Please note I have not visited one cookie exchange post as I am three and a half pounds from target and I am not going to let any of you corrupt me. I will be back visiting when your recipes have gone!!

much love 

Jan, xxxx

May your Thanksgiving be spank - free or spank - filled , just as you desire
Have fun!

love Jan and John,

A Mess or not A Mess.....

Hello everyone,

This is the tale of a mess of a wife and an irritated husband.

Once upon a time in a little village by the seaside there lived a long married (happily, actually very happily) middle aged couple. This odd pair live a lifestyle most commonly known as ttwd.

Yes indeed, they did their own thing, as did lots of their friends all over the world.

Each couple lived this life in their own way,  with rules for some and none for others.
"How unfair "I hear you cry. Well true, but hey ho life is what it is, as much as we bemoan our fate.

One fine day, and believe me the winds and rain are upon us now, so fine days are few and far between our couple went to the nearest town to do a bit of shopping, for the festive season of Christmas is nearly upon us.

Before I regale you with the day's adventures can I just say a word or two in defence of the sweet wife ( Hmm,glossing over some of her less attractive attributes here....) For the last few months said wife has had a few health issues, really big ones and a few other stressful life issues that have dragged her down.   She has possibly tried the patience of the nice husband just a wee bit. In truth the patience of a saint would probably have reached it's limit.

Okay on with the jolly day out...

Now as far as the wife was aware nothing unusual was happening, a lot  bit of shopping, a trip to the bank, Christmas pressies for family and a few friends, a bit of lunch out ( including some jolly nice forbidden cake)

Husband however was getting seriously cross and keeping quiet about it.
Innocent wife carried on blithely annoying him without knowing.
At this point I do feel a warning would have been appropriate but nothing was said :(

On returning home whilst putting the shopping away, hiding all the presents our heroine didn't realize husband's intentions until from the bedroom came....

"In here, now!"

"What, why, what do you want?"

 She wandered in to discover the pillows piled at the end of the bed and husband standing in a certain familiar position with that "look" on his face. If you don't know what look you are lying  and as I have been in trouble I am quite happy to grass anyone else up for fibbing as I so don't feel like being the only naughty one around here :(

 "Are you playing?"

"Not  a chance, skirt up, knickers down and over the pillows. "

At this point our poor girl had no idea what she had done... bewildered but sort of  obedient she assumed the position. There may have been a teensy bit of arguing first. Now the aforementioned husband is not a particularly good lecturer ( I am sure he won't mind me telling you, we all have our good and bad points after all).

The spanking commenced fast and furious. And jolly hard!

"ALL day you have been putting yourself down,  and I am fed up with it. Why in earth would you call yourself a fat ugly mess? What makes you think I would be with someone like that? All day long you have been doing it"


 The lecture continued in this vein for a bit and even included

"Did you see what was out there in that Market Place today, for God's sake you are not a mess.

Repeat after me  "I am not a mess"

Nothing was repeated, hubby pressed the issue, (several times) He even decided that the belt may help his case. Ouch!!

"Come on, say it". More spanking, lots of ouch-ing, owie-ing and squiggling, but no words...

Couldn't do it, just couldn't do it.  And then a rare occurrence happened

Tears, lots and lots of tears and finally

"I can't say it , I am not allowed to lie.................."

Speechless, the darling husband stopped at once and everything turned to cuddles and hugs.

Firmly he said, " You are not a fat ugly mess and you had better not say it ever again. I will not have you put yourself down like that"

This is how  a new rule came into place in the little house in the village by the seaside, how the maybe not such a mess wife discovered that she was not allowed to say just whatever she felt like, at least not without consequences. She also discovered that there are definitely times when her placid easygoing husband would  not let things go,

                                                     and that he loved her just as she is. :)

And I love him too, more than words could say.

Hope you all are having a good week, with or without  the spankings you do or do not deserve.

Is the Party Over?

Hi everyone,

Well that was a hectic couple of days out here in Blogland. I hope you all enjoyed the  Love our Lurkers party as much as I did.

Oh dear, Yes that is me!!

I feel exactly like that, actually for two reasons.
 The first is the hectic days I spent trawling around the computer talking to all and sundry. I do believe I have added a coupleof new blogs to my friends list and braved speaking to a few I haven't dared to approach before.

 The second is that I have had my little Grandbaby here all weekend and I babysat whilst son and dil went to a wedding.

Oh my goodness we had fun, and not much sleep. I think I could sleep for a week at the moment.  I think I must be getting old :( She is so beautiful, like a little dolly, bless her as she is tiny, thirteen weeks old and smiling all the time and just perfect. ( Yes yes I know I am biased but she really is)

I don't think lol day was as busy as last year but I hope I have made new friends and it is great to chat to my old pals just because we could. Let's hope that a few more people will become brave enough to come out and play more often.
 Blogging has been great for me, for advice, for fun, for stories (Yay!), for pictures, for always having someone who understands right there at the click of a button, I feel blessed to have met you all and so wish we were all a bit nearer. I would love to be putting the kettle on for you all

I would like to say a big Thank you to Hermione for hosting this year's event and to Bonnie for inventing it way back when.

I hope everyone of you had a lovely time.
Can't wait for next year.

Love our Lurkers 10!

Hello everyone and anyone out there on this special day in Blogland.

Yes, that's the day, Love our Lurkers day. I think we all have them and we  definitely all have been, or still are, lurkers at some point. Whether it is because we are not brave enough to speak up, or are not well informed enough to voice our thoughts, or simply not interested enough to shout out, we have all been and probably will be again Lurkers.

I quite like secretly reading blogs whose writers lead such very different lives to mine, often there I am not brave enough to butt in, but over the last three years I have made so many friends, people to whom I tell  my secrets to and some of whom I would dearly love to meet. 

If you are popping in here for the first time I will tell you the basics. I am in my fifties and very happily married for over thirty years to a kind and gentle man who spanks me  for fun always, and occasionally to rein me in a teeny bit. I am not particularly naughty, sometimes nice, often cheeky. I love my husband greatly and I am lucky enough to be well loved in return.

On my blog I talk about our lives together, the good bits and the whiny bits ( be warned), and everyone is welcome. I love getting comments (on the whole) and always try to reply.

I love this day in Blogland it is  like a fabulous party and for a couple of days I become

a party animal!!

I am so not a party animal in real life, I am more a home bird.
 In Blogland I have discovered that it is fine to be whatever you really are, I have made friends with some amazing people, I now have writers as friends, and I talk about the people here as if I had popped out for coffee with them to my real life friends , even though I do have to be careful what I say sometimes. 

I feel motherly to a couple of younger bloggers, and identify with a few others. Some I am amazed by, a few I  feel sympathy for and there are even a couple I would so love to meet I would travel miles ( and I hate holidays as a a rule so that shows how much I value their friendship) 

No one over here knows how we live our lives, although  second son and daughter in law are suspicious and not far behind us either!!

These pictures sum me up in a nutshell.....

This is true for most of us out here I reckon.

To be honest, I do ask although hubby is very perceptive and I find myself asking less and receiving more ;)

Doesn't matter how many times I look at this picture it always makes my tummy flip.Did I mention I am fairly easy to please!

My favourite phrase in the whole world

Self - explanatory......

Did I say I have  a fabulous artist among my Blogland chums? If you want to read her blog and see some more of her art it is called My Breath, and you can get in by clicking on my blogroll. In fact you can meet lots of my pals by clicking on their names there.

Just because.

And now you know a  bit about me this is the important bit for today. Can you for a moment or two stop doing this?

because you are very welcome to do this

Please, please come out to play today and ask away. You can ask anything you want to and I will try and answer it. I never lie ( it's a spankable offence don't you know?) so you hopefully will  get an honest answer ;)

Welcome to my world, I hope you will come again.

Meanwhile enjoy the party going on around the world today, mine's a Martini and Lemonade!
I will drink a couple whilst partying with my pals in America, Germany, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and here in England. I hope I haven't missed anyone's home country but to be honest I have no idea where some of you live!

love Jan, xxxxx

Corner Time Anyone?


Hello my friends,

My posts are generally fluffy or whiny, presumably because  that is my general make up, lol.
Today I am writing about an actual subject that appears in our lifestyle. Okay it only happens to a few of us and often not very frequently but still....

A couple of days ago one of my lovely blogger friends emailed me with a dilemma. Her and her husband lead a similar lifestyle to my husband and myself, so mostly fun and games with the odd bit of punishment creeping in.
For some reason her husband planned a reset for later that day and told her to be in the corner waiting when he got home. This had not happened to her before and I believe she instinctively refused as she didn't feel this was something she could do. Then in her misguided innocence she turned to me for advice.
At this point I need to say I am sorry because I didn't get the email until AFTER the event so was no help at all.  I was otherwise occupied all day and when I read the message and started frantically typing I realized she was probably mid -spanking.

Yes,my friends, a word of advice don't ask me as I will probably be off gallivanting.

My dear friend wanted to know what I would have done and how did I deal with corner time.
I think we all deal with this differently , I actually like it!!

Yes I know, I never claimed to be normal but I  find it helps me sink into a submissive head space.
I love how he is in charge, I love to be ordered how to stand and know that he is keeping an eye on me, He never makes me stand there for long though and I am sometimes clothed, sometimes not. For me up till now it has always been before a spanking and not after so I will admit my experiences are pretty mild. If he is really cross I do have to watch myself, no slouching or fidgeting ;)

My advice was to grin and bear it. I advised my friend to be there in the corner ready and waiting. After all it goes part way to keeping him happy and therefore avoiding a worse spanking. It is an easy thing to do to keep hubby happy, if he likes it I like it. Did I mention how simple I am?

After the event my friend emailed me to say she did do it in the end and I think I was as glad as her husband !!

 So what I would like to know is how do you all deal with the dreaded corner?

Do you love it or hate it?

Does it happen often in your house or is it a rare event?

Anyone escaped it altogether?

Any Hohs care to tell us why they like to put us there?

Okay, here comes the bit that makes you all laugh, different subject entirely.
Back to slimming world and a pound and a half loss this week. During the "chatty bit" everyone seemed to be struggling and lots of people asked for help and tips.
When it got to me I said what helped me the most was writing it all down in my book and then my mouth ran away with me...
( At this point you need to imagine the scene, a room full of chubby women, and daughter in law sat right beside me . )

"I write everything I have eaten down in a notebook " I stated , "and then when my husband gets home from work he comments on it and gives me rewards and consequences!"

Yes folks I actually said it  out loud and then to add to my  foot in mouth dil said,

"Oh yes I have seen that book, he writes things like good girl and naughty girl amongst other stuff!"

My heart actually stopped beating.... She wouldn't would she?.........

Thankfully every one laughed at this point and I nudged her in the ribs with a blushing face.
Our lovely consultant then laughingly said

"Oh gosh I don't think we better ask anymore " but she did go on to say that it was a good idea to have someone holding us accountable and she said that obviously praise is a good motivator.

I didn't mention that spanking was a better one, felt I had outed myself enough for one day!!

Hope you are all having a good week, in or out of the corner, and in or outing yourself to the world around you, lol

Lots of love

Wanna Meet my Husband ?

Hello my friends, Couldn't wait to do Ella's Meme about the most important person in my life.

1.Name a favourite movie of his. Do you like it too?

No I don't. He is a sci fi fan and I am not!

2.Tell us something you cook or bake that makes him happy. Do you add something that makes it special?

He loves my Shepherd's pie and my Cheese Scones. Nothing special just love added.

3. What does he wear to bed?

Nothing. Just me wrapped around him!

4. Does he have or has he ever grown a beard or moustache?

No thank goodness, I hate facial hair with a passion.Just saying...

5.If they were going to make a movie of your husband what actor would you pick to play him?

Oh gosh I love him!!( Hubby wasn't very keen on this idea btw)

6. Who is neater around the house, you or him? Then give us a sloppy example.

I am, I am a teeny bit obsessed actually. he isn't bad , he just isn't me lol

7. If you could buy him tickets to any concert (past or present) who would it be?

His very favourite band ever!

8. Does he wear a wedding ring? Do you care?

He has one but doesn't wear it often. he doesn't wear any jewellery. I don't mind, I know he is mine ;)

9. How old was he and how old were you when you met? What else do you remember about that day?

He was 28 and I was 21. We met at the place my dad worked and kept eyeing each other up until he asked me out to the pictures.... We were engaged 3 months later and married 6 months after that. Coming up to 34 years .....

10. If he was the one to choose an ethnic restaurant  for dinner out what would he choose?

He would choose Italian, probably because I like it the best ( did you know he loves me?)

11. Is there a photo of him as a child you find especially endearing?. Tell us about it?

There is a photo of him with Father Christmas aged about 4. Aw so cute :)

12. If you were going to choose a dress in a colour just to please him what colour would it be?

Easiest question in the meme! I love dresses, he loves this one. Actually I choose most of my clothes with him in my mind. I would never wear something knowing he wouldn't like it. 

13. Do you (or did you) love his mother?

I do, she is almost 90 and very frail, but has always been nice to me. When we first got engaged she said "I didn't think I was ever going to get rid of him" I think she was joking!

14.Name a famous person he really admires.

The actor Brian Blessed. Don't ask!! He doesn't do a single thing for me 

15. How does your husband take his tea or coffee?

In his " I love to spank my wife " mug of course! He prefers tea, a couple of sweeteners a dash of milk and a nip of Rum.

Does your man know how to Dance? Is it something you both enjoy?

Have a guess.  I am a dance teacher. I like dancing with him, he is kind enough to make the effort but I think he would rather do other things with me ;)

I would like to think we are like this but.....

yep, that's more like it, lol. See why I still need to go to slimming world, I am the little fat one!!

Thanks Ella, lovely meme, hope everyone else has a go too.

The "Spank Me" Charm!

Just a quickie to make you smile....

A couple of years ago my husband bought me a necklace for my birthday.

It is silver, with a little tiny ruler and a charm that says "spank me!" on it. I love it but am very careful where and when I wear it.

I would never wear it when I am at work or out with the kids. Last weekend, we were having a day in on our own  ;) so on it went. Thought I might give hubby a hint .

Later in the day, surprise visit from son number two and dil to be  ( have I mentioned that they live a couple of minutes walk away and I am now wondering if that is a good thing, lol)

Husband and son were in the loft searching for  Christmas decorations for the kids (don't ask, they are as mad as us those two) Daughter in law and I were standing chatting at the bottom of the ladder waiting for them to pass us things.

She leaned in a bit and ....

"Does that say what I think it does?", she said all innocent like, (little mischief maker).

My hand flew up to cover it and I went bright red.

"Er, yes "

 Now I know that wasn't exactly a witty  response but was there one I could have made at that point, Seriously I still can't think of anything I could have said to make this one go away.

She giggled, I giggled and son said  " What, what does it say?"

"Don't you tell him " I hissed, "He will die of embarrassment"

"Nothing " she trilled back sweetly. Now you know and I know that she will have told him the second they left the house. Could you have kept that a secret from your beloved? Exactly....

Fast forward to yesterday and they are here again as dil and I have just dragged son to a craft fair. Have I told you how besotted he is with her?  Just as they are leaving he swats her rear end as she walks past him.

I blurted out  "That's exactly what  dad would have done!"

"Where do you think I got it from ?" he says.

"You got off lightly darling, dad would have walloped me harder than that!"

" She tells me off if it's too hard!" Now that I laughed at.

"I am used to it " I said. Seriously did I actually say that out loud! What is wrong with me?  I was having a conversation about being spanked by his dad and and none of us were batting eyelids at it.

There is no doubt in my mind that these two know exactly what we get up to and are not far off getting up to it themselves! Happy families.......

I hope you are all having a great weekend,  ours is hopefully alone!!

Does She and Did I?

Hello everyone,

Does She?

Something has happened around here that I thought you may all find a teeny bit amusing.
One evening son number two and dil to be came around for a visit. So far so good...

"Would you like a cup of tea or coffee?", I said . Fairly harmless question I would have thought.

"Yes please, tea"

Still safe.

"I'll make it for you shall I? said dil heading to the kitchen. I told you I loved her, she is like that all the time, sweet and kind.

I followed along and put the kettle on and then...

"Umm hmm , what's this then?" she said  whilst rummaging around in the cupboard for mugs!

Oh yes my friends,  that is my husband's I love to spank my wife Mug!! Haven't you all got one of those lurking in the kitchen somewhere?

She looked at me and I looked at her, we both giggled and I blushed and  shoved it to the back of the shelf and fished out some harmless spotty mugs instead.

Fast forward to last night and it is band practice for my son and his group. Hubby is there watching with dil and  she says something about a song they had played.

 Son  laughingly says " Don't worry I will slap her later!"

Another band member says " Better do it somewhere it doesn't show"

Dil turns to my husband and grins, he grins back!! What does she know?........

If she isn't 100% sure don't forget this is the dil I have given the instructions to dispose of the toy box if anything happens to us. She has a pretty fair idea I reckon.

Did I?

Did I lose weight this week?

                                                                       Yes I did!!!!

Two and a half pounds in fact and dil managed to do the same so we were both smug when we got home. I have seven pounds to  go to get to target and this has spurred me on to try a bit harder! Another chocolate, cake, biscuit free week coming up :(

It feels like it is taking forever!

I like burning off calories with my beloved, but I can think of a few other ways ;)

Anyone know how many calories it takes to be spanked? I do squiggle about a bit, lol

Hope you are all happy and well and enjoying ttwd
