Castle here I come!



Hello everyone,

Sorry to  have been missing in action lately. No excuses really just that due to the boiling hot weather ( seriously can you tell I am English, we always discuss the weather?) there has been little spanking action around here. My posterior is roasted without so much as  a handprint. We live in a semi detached house and it is so hot hot hot that we have the windows open at all times and although I don't much care who knows about our kink I am not sure the neighbours would appreciate hearing it. Even if he could find a silent implement and you bet he has a few in his arsenal. Unfortunately I am not a quiet person , lol.

I can't be bothered to be naughty either, it is frankly too much effort. I am being angelic and lazy instead. We have had fun at the beach, lazy days in the garden, which due to the lack of rain has begun to look like  a brown carpet instead of the lush green it once was. I am not complaining though, about the weather, the lack of spanking or the dying grass as tomorrow I am off to the Castle..........



In my head at least!



Not this one but in my mind it is a bit like this on the outside

What I wonder is it like on the inside.

Well, tomorrow is release day for the latest book in the series and I have it on pre order. 


I absolutely love Maren Smith's books and this one is surely not going to be the exception. To make things even better it is eight stories by ten of our favourite authors. I have been caught up with the tantalising snippets floating around this last couple of weeks and I can't wait.
 Castle here I come!!


Oh it is.


This is so true, best thing I ever did learn to read at a very young age. Mind you I have moved on a bit since the Famous Five.....

Tomorrow we are going on a longish car journey to visit Grandgirl. She too has started to read and is as obsessed with books as I am.  She is three on Friday and has requested  a scooter in honour of the occasion.  We have an early start as we  are expected to attend dance class with her too! 

I am seriously hoping hubby doesn't want any conversation out of me on the way as my kindle is charged and ready. 



I have other news too and that is not spanky either! So sorry  to disappoint.

Our youngest and his fiancee have announced that they are to be married on Sept 7th ( yes it is only a few weeks away and no I don't think she is, not that we would mind to be honest)  Her children are so excited to take our name and call my son Daddy. They are having a ceremony at a nearby venue and then a garden party at their home ( borrowed a marquee , it is England after all and the rain will surely have paid us a visit by then). It is a proper handmade/ homemade affair, bargain hunting along the way as they want to spend all their money on the cottage. We are all having fun. Now this is the son who shall we say favours this lifestyle so I am hoping their life together will be as much fun as ours has been. 


I hope you are all okay,  and having a beautiful  spanky summer 
 See you at the Castle..........
love 
Jan

  2. Hi Jan ... what a nice surprise to wake to a post from you. We too are in the midst of a bit of a heat wave (by our standards, anyway) ... I laughed when you mentioned it's you and not the spanking through the open windows that you're worried about.

    Have a wonderful grand girl visit. Enjoy your new book and the rest of the summer sun fun ... and a wedding! ... you have a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks ... and yes, soon we'll be complaining about the rain ;))

    Hugs! ... nj

  4. Jan,
    I loved your chatty post. A visit from your little one will be wonderful. We know directly that the heat you are experiencing is both real and unusual. So nice to read your blog this morning.

  5. Jan,
    You made me think back to the summers when the newest Harry Potter book would arrive. Sam would pre-order it from Amazon, and it would arrive that very morning. Those were the days when my fingers would be orange from eating Cheetos when I was reading. All my books have the telltale orange stains.

    Congrats on the upcoming festivities. Perhaps an assortment of wooden spoons would be an extra little present for the couple. :) Have fun at the Castle!

    Hugs Across the Pond,
    Ella

  7. Your post had me smiling. I haven't read any of Maren's books. Hot it is and they say this weather could go on until October.

    Congratulations on the wedding. Love Ella's idea of a present for them. Enjoy your time with Grandgirl.

    Love,

  10. I hope the drive down wasn’t too hot, unless it was from reading the book! I can hardly believe Grandgirl is three, I remember shopping with you for her first birthday.
    Wonderful news on the upcoming wedding. Sounds as though you have lots to look forward to.

    1. Hi Abby, it seems like the whole world has got hotter this summer, we have definitely had our share. I feel like that too good news, bad news ....

  12. Fun to read about your life, so thanks for sharing. Happy news about the upcoming wedding, and best wishes to everyone concerned. Air conditioning rarely exists in England, so you have our sympathy. At least a roasted bottom feels good afterwards, and much more fun than humidity.

    1. Hi Red, thanks, it is so exciting. They are so sweet trying to do it on a budget too, it is making it all so special somehow. Air conditioning is not in homes in England, just a few shops and the odd fancy hotel! We have been roasting, all the shops have sold out of electric fans, lol

  13. Jan,
    Hilarious you are too hot to be naughty! The heat makes me crabby and it has been one hot summer here! I hope you have a wonderful time visiting your "castles"! And congratulations on your sons' engagement and your new additions to the family! Hugs! Windy ..... P.S. I added you to my blog roll AGAIN. I don't understand what blogger does as sometimes it just skips the important things I tell it to do! I think it needs a spanking!

  14. Hello, Jan. How was the reading? And congratulations on the addition to your family. :) How wonderful. :) I can attest to crying/screaming into a pillow being a wonderful way to cut down on the noise. hehehe Just in case you ever need the idea. :)
