My Dearest Wish.....



Hello everyone,

This post is not a spanking post, it is about my sons!!

We have been celebrating John's Birthday and so both boys and their other halves were with us.

Guess what we were given by son number one and our daughter in law!!



This is our very first Grandchild, due to make it's arrival at the end of August!

We are both so excited, it has been my dearest wish for ages to have a grandbaby, I can't wait ( in fact I have already been shopping, lol). All seems well, they are very happy, brother and his girlfriend pleased, and did I say we are ecstatic ;)  



And now things the other son has said in the past few days. First off his girlfriend  had a bit of an upset healthwise while we were away. We were quite worried about them both and during a phone call I said,
" give ..... a big hug from both of us"

He straightaway said to her,
" Mum and Dad send you a hug but be grateful they aren't here because when dad hugged  .....(his brother's wife) he ended up slapping her a**, so you are safer to have this hug at a distance !!"

At least it made  her  laugh and cheered her a little bit. My husband was mortified and knows he will never live that one down!

A couple of days ago the same son was annoying his girlfriend whilst she was cooking for him, just messing about and cuddling her, generally getting in her way and she turned to him and said

"I shall smack you in a minute and I don't mean in a good sexual way either!!"

Husband and I made a swift exit giggling like a couple of teenagers. I am pretty sure she is not the one who smacks in that relationship, Most people seem to think she is like me and she definitely defers to him on most things. Still we couldn't help laughing and she did gain herself a bit of peace.
They have now managed to save enough for a deposit on a house  and are searching for their own  home.
We will miss them but it is not going to be long before we catch each other out in some activity that perhaps we don't wish to know the other indulges in, no matter what we suspect!!


I hope everyone is okay, my thoughts are with Katie and her family at the moment, I hope everyone can spare a prayer or two for her.

Hope you all have a nice week

Love Jan, xxx

    1. Hi DF. I have wanted this for ages, years ago when I was ill it was the only thing that made me cry, the thought that I would never meet my grandchildren. Bizarre I know but eleven years on finally .... Yay!!

  5. Oh Jan, this is so wonderful!! Congratulations on becoming a grandma!! Woohoo!! :) I am so happy for you. :) I can see you shopping for baby clothes. Have you been looking for unisex colours or do you know more? Maybe this is a big secret, I loved to have that surprise. :)
    Oh my, you do suspect that your other son knows what’s going on between you and John. Don’t you? I think what your son said was funny, but I am a little sorry for your husband because he will hear that one for the rest of his life. :) Just guessing, but your son and his girlfriend might really have some sort of spanking in their relationship, because what she says sounds like she knows what she is speaking about. Hey, you have created a family tradition. :) I hope so much Katie’s mom will heal and her family will have less troubled times in the near future. My thoughts and prayers are with her too.

    … And congratulations (again), I am so happy. Your wonderful news alone make this week a good one. :)

    hugs, love and a squeeze from Tilda :)

    1. Hi Nina, you are so sweet, I wish you were my daughter, Another thing my youngest did was when we were away he hid all my wooden spoons after the previous week when I said he had lost a couple ( I then found the lost ones in the fridge!!) To get me back he and his girlfriend hid the rest in various places in the kitchen. We are all mad over here
      special hug to Tilda

  8. Congratulations, Jan!! I love being a grandma. Just wait til you get 3 in one year, lol. That happened to us in 2011. I don't think any of my girls do ttwd but one needs to ask permission to do things. Always nice not to be embarrassed to say, "I have to ask Dad first," because she always says, "I have to ask Hubbby first" too.

    Hugs,
    Clara
