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.
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
