Bits and Pieces!



Hello everyone,

Nothing really to report but reading of  my friend's latest adventures I felt like putting pen to paper ( okay finger to keyboard) . I can't come up with funnies, have no dramas to report, no major successes, just daily life plodding on here.

We went away for Christmas, but with my darling man working almost non stop we spent a great deal of time apart and it became a big deal to both of us. In years gone by maybe we would have accepted it more easily but now  I find myself struggling with it.

So I believe, did John. Is this the result of our heightened sense of each other since beginning ttwd? Or is it old age? Is it seeing the kids partnered up?  Maybe it is all these things but not for one moment was I happy to be without him, even though things couldn't be helped.
The log cabin was lovely, son number 1  even cooked the Christmas lunch!!  I don't mean to sound ungrateful, when we were all there it was a proper fun experience, just how you imagine xmas to be, and usually isn't.....

 My sons were great,  they have lovely girlfriends, my youngest especially is very aware of how we are. I am pretty sure that he and his girlfriend lead a life very similar to ours. Whilst I don't think he spanks her, he definitely swats her rear pretty often and they are so cute together.





Today John and I  have had a day together and we just booked a hotel for a couple of nights away around John's birthday next month. Funny thing was we couldn't decide where to go and son number 2 suggested a hotel he and his girlfriend have stayed at. When we went online to book it it looks lovely and among the room information it announced that the room was soundproof!!!




With much hilarity we booked in with hubby ruminating on what implements he should take as noise is not an issue.lol.



I have had a couple of spankings since Christmas, nothing major, more fun and games than punishment although as from tomorrow he is going to get a bit stricter on the biscuit front.;)
Yesterday he decided he would like to leave a mark or two! In his words

" because you like wearing them as a badge of honour or some such thing"

How rude, as if .... I do have a couple of marks today from that lovely little crop he has :)

Over Christmas I was very smug that I only put on 2 pounds and that is off again now. I would really like to get another half a stone off. I suppose that is my new years resolution of sorts, hence the biscuit ban :(( and the threat of a wooden intervention.

 Something to look forward to :(


When wandering through the cyber world I came across  a few things to give me some thought and amusement.


I think this is lovely.


Oh how funny this would be if it popped out when we have one of our regular chinese dinner nights with our vanilla friends!!


My most favourite thing in the world to be called :)


Well I am always happy anyway!!

Hope you all are having a great start to the year, may it be wonderful for all of us. 


Love Jan,xxxx

    1. Hi Terps, Hope you are okay. I never feel like I have anything interesting to blog about, my life is fairly boring to everyone else!!

  2. I love being called his 'good girl' too but it very rarely happens here. NOT because I'm not one (honestly) but because it's not a normal phrase of his I think!
    The time away sounds great and why else would they advertise that the hotel room is soundproofed if they didn't expect you to be bringing implements with you? Or is this just our minds?

    1. Hi Janey, oh bless you. I expect he has his own nice phrase for you :)
      I know, I have never seen that before either, makes a nice change though. Spanking action usually stops when we are away as he is worried about the neighbours!

  4. Loved reading this Jan and hearing how you are doing. Glad you all had a lovely time together, it sounds wonderful and wow, your son cooked Christmas lunch!:)

    I'm sorry you and John have had time apart. Any separation does seem harder, I think it's tied in with the closeness and intimacy of ttwd. So glad you have booked some time away. You sure can't beat a soundproof hotel room!:)

    Love the pics, gotta love the last one :)

    Hugs

    1. Hi Roz, Hope you and Rick are well and happy. I definitely think that it is ttwd that has brought about these changes. We are really looking forward to a few days together and wow a soundproof room, what ever shall we do?.....

  5. Sounds like you had a great holiday! So funny about the sound proof hotel room and your son! I hope you two get to spend some more time together now that the holidays are over. I find myself struggling when we're separated now too. Sending you wishes for a great New Year!

    Hugs

    1. Hi Jennelle, Our son is a carbon copy of his father, how blessed I am. I absolutely hate it when we are apart now, I am getting more dependent on him I think. happy new year to you and yours

  6. Jan,
    The glory of being called a god girl! Heaven on earth. Right?
    Sound proof rooms.............. what will they think of next? Jack will want to know so he can book for our next visit across the pond.

    1. Hi Meredith, It is my very favourite phrase ever. We will test it out and let Jack know when we come back whether it is really soundproof. I did think it is an odd thing to advertise, maybe the hotel will be full of spankers!
      love Jan,xx

  7. I am glad you both had time away! I also have a hard time when hubby and I are apart also.

    The sound proof room makes certain things easier!

    1. Hi Minelle, I don't know whether to be pleased about the soundproofing or not!! Hope you and your Scotsman had a great Hogmanay

  8. Happy to hear from you Jan. Since Matthew I and didn't live together and traveled for our jobs, I really understand not being able to spend a lot of time together...it does get frustrating.

    John's excitement over a soundproof hotel room cracked me up. Looking forward to hearing about your trip. LOL

    Love the marriage quote and the fortune cookie cracked me up.

    Hugs and Blessings...

    1. Hi Cat, I wasn't so much frustrated as lonely in a crowd I think. Next year we are not budging from home. He will still have to work but somehow when I am home it is not so bad. I will report back on the hotel , it looks lovely and we will be alone together. Oh I would love to see my vanilla friend's face if she got that cookie, she is absolutely the last person on earth that it is suitable for,lol

  9. Sound proof hotel - makes you wonder if they pitch to a certain clientele ;-)
    I'm finding the chocolate urge, so perhaps we could join forces. You resist the biscuits, I'll tackle the chocolate.

  11. I love your 'bits and pieces'! I am so glad you had such a good Christmas in the log cabin. It did sound wonderful, and to get your dinner cooked. Heaven!

    No, I don't care for being called 'good girl'. I really prefer 'bad girl', but said in a sexy way!

    It's strange you should remark about John being away and how you feel about it. I just emailed a friend from here telling her Dan is away and how I miss him, yet I never used to miss him like this. I feel all unsettled and at odds. Happily he will be back late this afternoon.

    You and that crop! My goodness, woman! What a minx you are!

    Don't get too thin. You looked wonderful to me. You don't want to get a turkey neck like some of those Hollywood filmstars! LOL!

    I've hung your pressie just inside Dan's wardrobe door where he can see it!

    Love
    Ami

    1. Hi Ami, I am never going to be thin, I can't layoff the biscuits long enough! I wondered what you would do with your pressie. John bought me one that said "I am a good girl with bad habits" I hung it in the kitchen near the damn biscuit tin! The kids laugh

  12. Sounds like your having a wonderful start to 2015. Hope you don't have too much time apart coming up! I haven't had to deal with that for many years and I'm so grateful.

    Hope you keep getting those nice gg spankings!!

  13. Hi Jan, I am sorry that your John had to work so much. This is something I have to struggle with too at times. I think that your reasons why this was more of a struggle this time are all part of it … apart from this …’old age’ thingy. So not true young lady! :) But the heightened intimacy that comes with ttwd is definitely part of it, I’d say.
    I loved what you wrote about your time in the cabin, this sounds so lovely. What you wrote about your youngest son left me wondering if maybe there is more behind him swatting his girlfriend’s rear than you guess?
    The hotel sounds great too. I hope you have the time of your life there. I am happy for you for having fun-spankings and keep my fingers crossed because of the biscuit issue. …We still have loads here and they keep vanishing in me. I have put on more than two pounds, which is frustrating, because I have not had all the pregnancy weight down yet. :( Hubby doesn’t mind yet though, because I promised tht I will pay more attention to weight loss, so I have some more time (and hope nursing helps). … Besides, I am glad that I do not have wooden intervention for this … yet.

    Thank you for the non-calorie food for thought, this is lovely. I also hope you have a wonderful year and thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, and there is nothing boring at all in it, on the contrary, it is lovely and I enjoy reading this so much!

    hugs and love

    1. Hi Nina, I think you mustn't worry about your weight. It was years before I lost the baby weight. There are too many other things to worry about. Be grateful you don't have a wooden issue in your house, I prefer anything else at all!! Hugs to Tilda

  14. Loved hearing from you. Sometimes it is hard to start a post when "we" think we don't have anything to say. The next thing we know... it evolves into something that does have meaning. Sorry that Christmas was not as you thiught it would be, life has a way of being disruptive. Hopefully you both found some time to make it meaningful. Pretty funny that your son was able to be a good resource with recommending "the perfect" place to stay. Hope you and John make up for lost time and enjoy your stay in that sound proof room!

    1. Hi Annabelle, Christmas was fine really, I am just being over sensitive I think, It is always stressful, all the build up seems to go on for ages!
      We are looking forward to our little break next month

  15. Hi Jan!
    I'm so glad that you posted - even if you think it's bits and pieces - it's a treat to catch up with you. :)
    I was totally cracking up that your son recommended a hotel that is soundproof! I never thought of looking for that in a search - but I definitely will from now on. I love that John understands that marks are a badge of honor 'or some such thing' (lol) for a spanko - that is so great. Can't wait to get my hubby to that point (but at least he's getting into making me rosy)
    Hope you have a fantastic time when you are there!
    hugs,
    Cali

    1. Hi Cali, It remains to be seen if it is actually soundproof! we will test it out and report back lol . I do like having a mark or two, hubby has never minded that as he knows I am happy with it so...
