Leaning in and questions.

Funny how one blog can lead into an avalanche with a lot of us blogging similar things. During this week I read three of our friends blogs Ella, Katie and Meredith's about leaning in to our men.

I guess I've been guilty of taking over these past weeks whilst Bear has been sick, especially this last week.  We also had an appointment with our financial advisor as our investment was maturing.  So Bear and I discussed prior to this how we needed to reinvest so much of the money and withdraw a certain amount to live on for the next 12 months.




During the appointment Bear was sort of fumbling, as with being sick he seems to be a bit muddled, forgetting things.  When our financier asked how much we wanted to reinvest, Bear didn't answer so I jumped in and took over.  Oops! Bear gave me a look that told me to watch my step. 





So I soon closed my big mouth again and let him do the rest of the talking, I was only trying to help after all.


On a second occasion when Bear and I attended his doctors appointment, she ordered a variety of tests for Bear.  Then turned to me saying I think you should have the blood tests also.  I agreed but blurted out I'm not having all the other tests though.  The doctor turned to Bear and said you have a cheeky one there.  He just laughed at the time with a strange look on his face.



So besides sorting out our financial business I've also banked a few spankings  these past weeks.  Wonder how much interest I can accumulate on them and when they will mature.




We still have over half the month of March to go, so anymore questions either for me or Bear?  Minelle you said you wanted to ask something, go ahead.  It was fun answering everyone's questions.

We had a really nice quiet day celebrating our anniversary.  No action happening around here lately but that doesn't matter, it was nice just being in each others company.  I cooked a special meal which brought back memories of when I cooked dinner shortly after we were married.   It was supposed to be dinner by cande light,  Bear switched on the lights saying he couldn't see what he was eating.  The other day I lit the candles, then switched off the lights. We are still in daylight savings here, so doesn't get dark until late, it was hard getting the house as dark as possible.   Bear went around turning the lights back on again.  Talk about deja vu.  In the end we had a lovely romantic dinner by candle light.

    1. Hanging my head in shame Jan for adding my two penny worth. Can't always be an angel.
      Dinner by candelight is my favourite way to spend special occasions.

  2. Poor Bear...if he's anything like my ex or Matthew, he hates feeling anything less than 100%. So he's acting like a bear with a thorn in his paw. ;) Of course, 'helpful' wives don't seem to be appreciated. LOL Hope you're not banking too much interest on those spankings. Sending healing energy for both of you.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Cat that is exactly how Bear is at the moment. You summed it up well. Thanks for your healing vibes, we appreciate them.

  3. I hope Bear is improving...and they find the cause soon. Men and candlelight...they just do not see it as we do....I sometimes try the saving on the electic argument....It is hard not to be 'helpful' when they are not at their best..

    1. Abby it is extremely hard not to be 'helpful' at times like these.
      Think it was just that with Bear being sick he wasn't in the mood for a romantic dinner.

  4. Closing my mouth is indeed a challenge. I thought you pulled things back together rather well, Lindy.

    If Bear is a bear when he is well, then is he a "Bear Squared" when he is not? "Cheeky one" says the doctor. Ha, that really made me laugh.

    Sending Hugs Downunder,

    1. Ella love what you said about Bear being a "Bear Squared" when he is unwell. Yep cheeky is my middle name I think. Just need to learn to zip my lips.

  5. I giggled at your speaking up - that's me. I can't seem to be quiet no matter how much trouble my mouth causes.

    1. Think we must all be similar Sunny with our speaking up. Not always a good outcome afterwards though.

  6. Lindy,
    Your story is my story. My mouth and the quick way I just jump right in often has things dicey here often. I know I need to listen more, but that doesn't always happen. Hope your Bear is on the mend soon.

    1. Guess Jack took care of you before your appointment the other day so you kept your mouth closed. Maybe if I was also sitting on a sore bottom I would have behaved. Its so hard at times like that though.

    1. Thanks Terps. Bear is slowly improving, think it will take a while before he is 100% though. So I better put my angel wings back on and zip my mouth to keep out of trouble.

  9. Sorry I am late here! I was away this weekend!
    Okay here's a kinda silly question!
    I used to read tons of Harlequins in my adolescence and very young adult life! Many were based in Australia ( in the Outback) and had romance with HOH men who spanked! Did you ever read books like that....? Do you laugh at others perception of Australia?
    I sometimes smile at my youthful naïveté!
