JANS BIRTHDAY



Its one of our sweet friends birthdays today, so I'm spilling the beans.  Unfortunately she is feeling poorly, so maybe a bit of birthday cheer from  all  of us will make her feel better.




Happy birthday Jan,  we all hope you have a wonderful birthday.


Hopefully you can have a nice celebration once you feel better with some bubbly and delicious food.  Maybe John could match the colour of this champagne with a birthday spank.

Best wishes
Hugs Lindy and Bear xx

Thank you so much everyone for stopping by over the two love our lurkers days.  I had so much fun visiting all your posts, hope you all enjoyed these days also.


I'm doing my happy dance can you see? 

One anonymous lurker came out of hiding to tell me she is a fellow Aussie and wants to communicate with me via email.  Woohoo!  Also Fondles has referred me to a blog friend of hers who happens to be an Aussie. Thank you so much Fondles.  A few other people delurked also, so I'm a very happy  person right now.



How did you all go?  Did you make new friends either coming out to chat on your posts or emailing you? 

Thank you so much Hermione for hosting the lol days for all of us to meet new people.

LOVE OUR LURKERS day 2

LOL 12  day part two.

Yesterday was heaps of fun, I think I've made a few new friends, I'd still like to see a few Aussies pop in to say G'day to me though. Living in  a continent as big as Australia with over 24 million residents, there really,  really has to be more than two homes practicing TTWD.  Where are all you spankos???????? I'm sure amongst my lurkers there are some from around here.  




To use Lara Bingles famous saying ........
                   Where the bloody hell are you?????



Come out of hiding all you Aussies.  I'd really like to meet more of you, so we can become friends. All you have to do is say hello to start, or if you are game leave me some more information about yourself. I don't bite really or at least not hard.   C'mon Aussie c'mon c'mon.

If you don't really want to leave a comment here email me at lindylouthomas@gmail.com.  I'm not going to judge you on the way your practice TTWD.  We all do our own thing, that's the beauty of it, there is no one size fits all.



So come out, come out where ever you are and ask  Bear or me  a question.  We'll get back to as soon as we can.

If this is your first day visiting here pop on over the Hermiones to see the list of people participating so you can blog hop. Best way to make new friends.

Thank you for visiting Hugs Lindy and Bear xx

LOVE OUR LURKERS


LOL 12 day has arrived, YAY!






Welcome to DOWNUNDER DREAMING


Bear and I have been married for a long, long time, we're retired, living our dream in a regional area of Victoria, Australia. We have so much fun practicing  ttwd with plenty of giggles from both of us.



So pull up  a chair so we can have a cup of tea and a chat. Bear has just made a fresh batch of scones for us to enjoy.                                                                                             


I know by the graph on my blog there are plenty of readers out there who stop by each post.  So this is your day to come out of the shadows to say G'day.  We love our lurkers and would really like to get to know you more. Don't be shy!  I would especially love to meet some fellow Aussies.  Where are you all?




I started out as a lurker about four years ago by commenting on peoples LOL day posts.  Funnily a few encouraged me to join in blogging, my reply was 'No way, I could never do that. I'm too shy'  Now here I am fast forward those years.... I've written a handful of stories for PK  over at  New Beginnings, then started my own blog.  Our blogging community are all so friendly, we are like one big happy family.

Please feel free to either stop by to say hello, ask me any questions you like or tell me a bit about yourselves. You can use your real name, a pseudonym or remain anonymous, its what ever you feel comfortable with at the time.   If you don't feel comfortable leaving a comment on this post email me at lindylouthomas1979@gmail.com

I'll start off asking you a question...... Have you read any good books lately?  I'm presently reading Jane Henry's   Mafia Daddy, its so good, as are all the books Jane writes.



I'm really looking forward to  Cassie's  Life  written by PK Corey being released next week.  Have you read the Cassie series?  If not do yourself a favour and go check them out.  Awesome books about the life of Cassie, Tom and all their friends.


Thank you so much Hermione  at http://hermionesheart.blogspot.com.au/ for hosting LOL 12.  Head on over to her page to find a list of participants. I hope everyone can go blog hopping to meet new friends, its well worth it.  Some of us have even made friends in real life either meeting up or ringing each other.  So what's to lose, make this day the first of many happy days in blogland.

Hugs Lindy and Bear xx

LOL 12 day is coming

Love our lurkers day is just around the corner. Actually at the end of this week, Friday 17th and Saturday 18th. So polish your party shoes to be prepared for a fun time visiting everyone in the land.  If you are an old friend  or a new friend pop in to say hello to everyone.  This is the day you come out of hiding so we can see you and become friends. 

I'm really, really hoping to make some friends down under.  Its getting pretty lonely down here with just Don and myself.  In a land as big as Australia there must be other practicing 'This thing we do.' Come on you know you want to stop by and say Hello!  I don't bite, promise.

Until Friday Hugs Lindy and Bear

HAPPY HALLOWEEN



Happy Halloween to all who celebrate it.  It's starting to catch on a bit more in Australia, probably not as much as my American friends.  Hope for those of you who trick or treat you receive some nice things. We don't usually have anyone call around, although we are prepared with some lollipops.



I've been made an admin of one of the photo groups I belong to.  This week was my turn to pick the prompts, so I thought I would have a bit of fun with Halloween theme photos.  The head of the group was not at all pleased with my choices telling me that no one in the group does Halloween.  Well to my delight, everyone is getting into the spirit and posting some awesome photos.  I feel like I've achieved something.  LOL!


I have a question for all my author friends in blog land.  As there are several different Amazon sites and I buy mine through amazon.com.au do you receive notification when someone does a book review?  Once I read a book, I straight away review it before I forget.  I've been finding that I'm the only one in the land down under who has either read or reviewed these books.  Wonder how many are sold down here or am I the only one who reads dirty books as my daughter calls them.

Nothing much been happening around here, plenty of GGs and MFLs, time is sure flying though.  I've joined a group called mermaids (aqua aerobics).  Its fun and keeping me fit along with bike riding.  On most days there are around 20 mermaids and one very brave merman, he laps up all the attention. Had D1 and little J visit recently for Bear's birthday.  D1 definitely knows about our life style now, as whilst she was here I was on the receiving end of constant swats.  One in particular happened when I was washing the lunch dishes.  Bear had filled the sink with straight hot water which I didn't know until I immersed my hands.  I let out an exclamation FAR OUT!  Both Bear and D1 thought I dropped the F bomb, so Bear gave me one almighty hard swat, which hurt so much,  I said FAR OUT again. D1 said there you go again dropping the F bomb you deserve a spanking.  LOL!  This is coming from Ms Potty mouth herself. 

Its still rather chilly here surprisingly.  We can be in the mid teens yet where our children live they are having temperatures 30c+.   We had packed away our winter woollies only to rescue them again as the winds are so icy.

Hope everyone is keeping well and enjoying life to the max with plenty of spanky business.

Hugs Lindy xx
