Lurkers to Friends at a Click!




Hello everyone and welcome to my Blog on this very special day in Blogland.



I am a fifty something happily married wife.  We live in England and are both retired. I have been married to  the love of my life for almost thirty five years and for the last four years or so we have practised our version of ttwd. As you are reading here I am guessing you either do , have done, or want to do, a similar sort of thing. I say similar as there are many different varieties of this lifestyle and I firmly believe that no couple does ttwd the same as another.

To sum it up for us, we are gentle ttwd'ers! I'm fairly good ( truly), he spanks for fun and frolics (mostly, although he has been known to use his developing skills to rein me in on occasion ). There are few rules and the ones in place are generally speaking not ones I wish to disobey anyway, hence most of what happens here is fun.

 We have had our ups and downs, as with most of us out here it is very hard to marry someone and then goodness knows how many years later you suddenly spring on them your burning desire to be spanked! 

 Say What!!!
 How hard that must be for an unsuspecting partner, and then the relentless search for a meeting of minds, and hand to bottom!

 It is no surprise that out here in Blogland friendships are forged , there is a need for advice, for listening and understanding and for acceptance. I count myself lucky to have found all of the above out here and with the gift of these we have managed to find a path through this lifestyle. 

Occasionally I have found myself in a wee bit of trouble, I once told hubby to

"Shut up and do as you are told!"

Guess what that led to

Yep, you've got it. In my defence (weak though it was) I was tipsy. Didn't stop the spanking being one for the record books the next morning.


On a general basis though it's more like this,  especially as I seem to want to please him more and more. I love fussing over him, even if it drives him mad at times. I love being 



My favourite phrase ever.....

but


Yes, there is a bit of this



A little bit of this ;)



And lots of this!!!



Now of course today is not about us so:


How about you?

Are you one of these?




I am pretty sure I have a few lovely lurkers out there so today I would like to say how nice it would be to meet you and find out a little bit about your lives for a change.   I am not asking for a big reveal, just a titbit, any thing you care to share. Please come out to play and say hello.

 In return ,


Ask away........

Who knows, you might make some new friends today,  I know over the last few years I certainly have, real life  friends too not just ones at the end of the button.
To visit some of my chum's blogs just click on the title of the Blogs you fancy having a peak at on my Blogroll. A big thank you must go to Hermione ( Hermione's Heart) for organising today too. I suggest you start with her blog and she will guide you to the rest of today's participants.

 We are all very lucky to have found each other, this lifestyle is not for the fainthearted. We are a community that pulls together in times of need, helps each other with advice and teases each other in times of spanking, lol. So today get brave, put on your party hat and come and join us  as we have a two day binge of friendship and nosiness out here in Blogland.



  
Glass of Bubbly anyone?
After all it is quite a trek, around Blogland in a couple of days, I do find I need a bit of something to wet my whistle.

Hope you have a great couple of days,


love Jan, xxxxx

  9. Hi Jan! I am one of your shy silent readers. I love your blog, and have two adorable kittens at home. It was a huge help to us to read about your recent struggles after your surgery. We have been doing our own version of TTWD for 2 and 1/2 years. It can be challenging when all you read are positive things - your honesty and openness really helps. Thank you for sharing!

    1. HI there, you are very welcome. I am glad I helped you in a little way. If you want to email me it's rosychuckles@gmail.com
      I really struggled after the surgery and debated whether to blog. I am glad I did now. I am a cat lover too, there's usually one or two on a post somewhere..

  11. Happy LOL-Day, Jan! Such a long and happy marriage is indeed inspiring. Thanks for delurking on our blog! My husband Ludwig and I only do spanking for fun. Ludwig is mostly a top but enjoys switching once in a while. And I am a switch. So we both find us on the giving as well as on the receiving end of a spanking from time to time.

    Many greetings from Germany,

  21. I'll happily join you in a glass of bubbly, maybe two! I never had to spring the idea of TTWD to my dear Tom. He did the springing. And truly like you I do enjoy it for the most part. I've never said "Shut-up and do as you're told" but I have said equally dangerous things and like you paid dearly. So happy for both of us that its more just for fun these days.

  23. You are just the sweetest blogger ever, Jan. I have always maintained that you need to sully things up a bit, and Hubby would have more reasons to spank.

    I liked the title you chose for this post! So true. Who knows where that first comment can lead one.

  26. Happy LOL Day, Jan! You're correct that I wish my life was a bit more like you and your husband's. Unfortunately, the love of my life passed away 16 years ago, so I don't know if I'll ever achieve that kind of relationship. I do keep looking, though--as long as I'm breathing, I have hope. :-)
    Anyway, best wishes for a great LOL Day!

  27. Hi Jan!
    Just had to say Hi to you on LOL day! I always read your blog and think you are the sweetest person ever! Remember that time Ella advised you on all kinds of ways to act up so you could get into trouble? So hilarious! I am older than you and I can do it, so you can too! I always enjoy your blog and hope you keep it up!

    1. Hi Ava, That is very nice of you to say. I don't think I am really sweet, I reckon I am not brave enough to go getting into too much trouble. I always was a scaredy cat even at school. Glad you read here and have come out today, thank you so much
