How are you really?

September 14th is RUOK day in Australia, it should be world wide.  Have you ever been asked are you ok, to just say yes I'm fine?  When really you would love to talk about a problem with a friend. 

Well today take some time out of your day and ask family and friends RUOK?  Lend an ear so they can get their problems off their chest.  You never know you might be able to help in some way and offer a solution.  Or just listening over a cup of tea/coffee is sometimes enough.  Its nice to  know someone cares enough to take time out of their busy day to ask RUOK. Be courageous and open up.  Don't feel embarrassed, for all you know that person may have been in a similar situation.

So ask RUOK? and when the person says YES ask again..... Are you REALLY ok?   It can take a bit of nudging to get someone to open up.

To all my friends out there in blog land RUOK?  I hope you are, but I'm here if you need to share. You can email me if you don't want to leave a comment.

And yes I'm ok, couldn't be better at the moment.  Life is good!

SHHHH! Don't tell your HoH

Bear is very pleased with himself as he has discovered another tool of ass destruction and boy does it sting.  Its quite a simple thing which we use in our kitchen regularly, yet this is the first time he has used it to swat me.

On Sundays my wonderful man always makes scones for lunch.  He likes to vary it one week plain, one week date or blueberry.  This last Sunday he made pumpkin scones.  When he was mixing the ingredients together he decided to wear a pair  of food handling gloves.  Yes just your every day plain food handling gloves.  Whilst he mixed and  cooked I washed up for him.  Next thing I know there was an almighty crack and an even louder OUCH!  Oh boy being swatted with a glove really, really stings.  He has tried normal rubber gloves and woollen gloves before, never food handling gloves. Every time he passed behind me he gave me several swats just to get a reaction.   So he is pretty pleased with himself with the outcome and raring to  try it again.

Well my welcoming spring post was a bit premature, as the weather has taken a nose dive again back to wintery weather.  Our clothes drier is in the garage,  out I trotted with a basket full of wet washing, next thing plonk, I'm down the back steps on my bottom.  I honestly didn't think about the deck being slippery from all the hail we've had. 

Bear wasn't very happy, so lectured me on wearing the correct shoes.  That night in bed he asked me how my bottom was feeling.  I told him my right cheek hurts, so he decided to match it by spanking my left cheek.  After that he added a few softer swats to my right cheek so it wouldn't feel left out. Funny man!  Whilst spanking he said he should keep some of the gloves beside the bed to spank me from now on as he loved the way they increased the sting.

I suppose you've all probably seen this little saying going around face book.  Its been doing the rounds for quite a while now.

Bear has only just noticed it saying he is going to have to spank me daily so our grandchildren aren't spoilt.  Well that sounds like a good plan, I'm in on that, if he remembers.

My thoughts are prayers go out to all those affected by the hurricanes in America. Stay safe!

Spring has arrived, one of my favourite seasons.  YAY!  Time for new growth with blossom on the trees, baby lambs and calves running around the paddocks.  The days are getting longer and warmer at last. Bear seems to be in a playful mood. Woohoo!

August threw a lot of challengers at our family which Bear kindly helped me cope.  He seems to have a spring in his hand lately, surprising me at every  turn with hard swats or nice relaxing spankings. Just what a girl wants. BLISS!

I've been participating in an awesome group for the past five weeks, which has taught us to look after ourselves better.  If we have a healthy mind, we'll have a healthy body. Week five we made soap which was so much fun.  It would be nice to make them as presents.

Hope you all have been  keeping well and your weather is kind to you.  Have a great weekend and be on the receiving end of some nice GGs.

Most viewed post.

Amy at Eric51Amy49 asked us all to repost our most viewed post, this is mine from 16/1/2016.  Funny rereading it as a few things have changed.  Down the bottom it says we were so hot we had both split systems on to cool down.  Right now we have them both on to warm up, as this morning started out at 0c.  Who in their right mind gets up early on a Sunday morning in that temperature to go to church.   Guilty as charged!  Also where it mentions about my medication I can now say I'm off all meds, yippee!  Much healthier, if I can only stop myself having accidents. LOL!

A moth and a black out got me spanked

.I think my Bear must have made a new years resolution to see if he could find something for a daily spanking.  As that is what's happening around here, even when I'm sweet like an angel.

Yesterday he was trying to shave before going for his bike ride.  I was in his office on the computer checking my face book as I usually do whilst eating breakfast.  All of a sudden we had a black out, which I wondered if something had happened on the net.

Bear came out of the bathroom shouting "Someone's getting a spanking."  Like a little kid I tried defending myself by saying it's not my fault.
He pulled his armless music chair out and hauled me over his knee.  I was only wearing my dressing gown and was very surprised at the little protection this offered. Swat, swat, swat, he reigned down on my backside for a short time.  It was all over just as I was starting to feel the nice affects.  He returned to the bathroom and completed his shave, then went for his ride.  I asked him later if he really thought it was my fault.  He said no but he felt like spanking me anyway and it was a good excuse.

Today he was dressing after his shower.  He came out to the kitchen half dressed carrying something in his hand. 

"Eeeeewwww what's that"? I asked.   It was a giant moth he found in his shorts. Bear took me by the hand into the bedroom and said to bend over the end of the bed.  He flipped  my skirt up and pulled down my knickers. 
Whack.... You..... whack..... Know...... whack.... I..... whack.... Don't..... whack ....Like..... whack ...Moths..... whack..... In ....whack ....My...... whack ....Clothes.......  By this time we were both laughing.  Then he proceeded to go to town on my bottom.  After he thought it looked nice and red he went to retrieve his big belt.  This is the one I hate as even light strokes hurt like anything.  So I begged him not to use that one but he wouldn't listen.  He whacked me about four times before I stood up holding my bottom saying please Sir no more. He bent me over again giving me another two before changing to his hand again. I said I'm sorry Sir and he stopped. This led to other more enjoyable things which was a lovely start to the day.

Apart from this I've been using the bike on the trainer everyday except Wednesday when it was 38c.  We had another cruise ship in that day anyway,  so we went to look at it and around the market.  So I got my exercise walking, or that's my excuse anyway.  Stupid weather we were melting on that day with both split systems cooling the house down.  Since then it has been chilly again and Bear even put the heater on last night.  Also been sticking to my healthy eating plan.  All my medication have been cut in half too, which makes me happy.  I hate having to pop so many pills each day.  So things are starting out well in that direction.  Hopefully I'll be a new me by at least my birthday.

Have a good weekend everyone.  Thanks Amy for suggesting doing this repost.

Is it a bird?       Is it a plane?      No its Superman or should I say Superbear!


  Over the past month Bear has taken over practically everything in the house from sweeping/washing floors, cleaning, cooking and you name it he's done it.  All in the name of LOVE!


I don't even have to ask Bear to do anything, he just automatically does it all.  What a wonderful man he is to me and I'm one lucky person.  Recently I had a friend say to me, she has gone off all men as they always let her down. This is so sad!  I told her not to give up hope as there are still a lot of really great men out there, to stay positive. Mr Right will turn up on her door step one day.


A few things have happened with our family during this past week, which made me feel really down.  So Superbear came to the rescue last night with a wonderful GG followed by some MFL.  It feels like its been forever since we had any loving action, well it was before my slip, so at least 5 weeks.  It was so good to have that reconnection again.


Is that dripping starting to annoy you?  LOL!  We were in a deep slumber when I was woken by a dripping noise,  so went to investigate it.  Noises during the night always seem to be more exaggerated for some reason and I knew I wouldn't be able to get anymore sleep until the problem was fixed. 


Where was that noise coming from?  It was similar to a smoke alarm when the battery is dying with a bird chirping noise.  No it wasn't that!  So I went into the bathroom to check all the taps.  No the taps weren't dripping!  Frustrated I returned to bed with Bear asking if I was alright seeing I had been gone for a bit. Once I explained he hopped out of bed to investigate also, to no avail.


Its driving me crazy!  Eventually I grabbed a wash cloth to stuff down the plug hole.  Phew end of problem, now we can finally have some shut eye. 


I let slip a naughty word   which earned me a hard swat. Oops!  If its not the dripping its the f****n dogs.  GRRR!  Up I jump again to let them out to answer to natures call.  It had been raining really heavy with hail,  the back desk was covered. So instead of going to the loo, one naughty little puppy decided to eat all the hail stones.   I was standing there freezing cold. The only good part about being up in the middle of the night, the sky was so clear the stars were sparkling and I could here the waves crashing on the foreshore.

Although Superman always comes to the rescue this time it was Wonder Woman.  Yes!

We finally were able to catch some more zzzzzz.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.  Hope you're all enjoying your weather, be it summer or winter.  I'll be glad when spring arrives.

Hugs from Superman and Wonder Woman xx

p.s. for those who have diabetes please be extra vigilant with any cuts you may have. I wish Superman and Wonder Woman could fix a problem regarding this with one of our family members.

Ella's Summertime meme

Summertime and the Meming is Easy.....

Gosh I wish it was summertime here with nice balmy days.  It must be on the way though as our bulbs are starting to bloom.  I can only dream at the moment, as its so cold and we have had so much rain.

1.  Name a tender song that can almost make you cry.

I honestly can't think of a song that would make me cry.  Although I'm a sooky la la so I cry at the drop of a hat. 

2.  What is your favorite shade of lipstick?  What about nail polish?  If you do not wear lipstick or polish, what do you like or dislike about the shades you see others wear?

Well my favourite colours are pink and green.  Don't think green lipstick would look very good.  So a subtle shade of pink for me. I don't wear nail polish as it never stays on long enough.

3.  Name a children's nursery rhyme or song that you loved and to which you remember all the words.

The was an old woman who swallowed a fly.  I remember singing this song in primary school in a round robin.  Used to be so funny.

4.  What outfit would you put on in the morning if you wanted to feel happy and well dressed?  Something in which you think you look pretty damn good!

At the moment being winter here its so hard to keep warm and look pretty.  So we tend to dress in layers.  My favourite thing is a nice warm jumper, pair of slim line pants and these boots.

5.  If you had enough money to buy just one, would it be a cottage by the ocean or a cabin in the mountains?

I've always wanted to live in the country.  Bear likes to live close to the coast, so we compromised when moving.  We are in a coastal rural area. So I'd say a country cabin.


6.  If you are old enough, which one of the Beatles did you have a "thing" for?  If you are not that old, tell us a musician that really did it for you.

I always had a soft spot for Ringo Starr.

7.  Name a smell that you love - could be kitchen, outdoors, person, your choice.

I really, really love the smell of gum leaves either after the rain or thrown into a fire. Very Australian.

8.  How often do you defuzz your legs.  Wax, razor, or electric?

In summer once a week with a razor.  In winter I let it grow as I don't really have very much hair.

9.  How/why did you choose your blog name?  

Down under being for Australia

Dreaming  for a better life, which is what's happened to us.

10.  What do you like to eat for breakfast?  To drink?  Coffee or tea?

At the moment being winter I love to eat rice porridge with blueberries and yoghurt.  During summer I just eat the yoghurt and berries. 

I always start the day with a cup of tea.


11.  How many siblings do you have?  Or are you an only child?  Are you the oldest, a middle, or the youngest child?

Its complicated as   I technically have four siblings.  My brother died last year, so that left  3 sisters.  My eldest sister and I are the only ones who are talking to each other. Weird family! I'm the baby  of the family.

12.  What is your favorite salad dressing?

Italian salad dressing is my favourite.


13.  If you could sit next to anyone (alive) on a long plane trip, who would you pick?

As I am petrified of flying it would have to be my Bear to keep me calm.  LOL!  Big wuss!

14.  Have you ever gone shopping just to cheer yourself up?

Not really as I don't like shopping very much either for fun items or essentials.

15.  If there is one thing that can make you lose your temper, what would it be?

This is a hard one as I'm usually placid.  Maybe if someone did something to hurt a family member I would get my claws out.


16.  Tell us about the best photograph you have ever had taken.

One thing that came out of my fall is that Bear gave me his good camera.  I think so far the best photo I've taken is a recent one of him.  It also was chosen in the top list of my photo group. Sorry can't show you the photo here,  those who know me on fb have seen it.


17.  Have you ever gone skinny-dipping and where?

No never, but I would love to if the area was secluded.  This would be Bear and I.

18.  What do you like on your pizza?  What don't you like on your pizza?

I make my own pizza with a cauliflower base.  So I add tomato paste, feta cheese, capsicum, eggplant,  baby spinach and chorizo sausage. Delish!

Thanks Ella that was a fun meme to do.  Enjoy your week everyone.

accident update

Just an update on my recovery from the BIG slide down the embankment.  Well its already two weeks ago, boy time flies.  Even when I'm sitting here throwing the biggest pity party imaginable.
Last week Bear decided after giving me my nightly massage with horse liniment he'd put his foot down.  Therefore telling me its time to go see the doctor.  I hate going to doctors especially here as they chop and change all the time.  I never seem to find one I feel confident  with. 

So the next morning Wednesday,  Bear made me ring up, I was surprised I was able to get an appointment that morning.  He came with me either to supervise or chaperone, I don't know.  Maybe to make sure I told the doctor everything. The doctor poked and prodded whilst I ouched a lot.  What a sooky la la I have turned out to be.  He concluded he thought I had cracked ribs, so ordered xrays straight away.  Luckily the hospital is opposite the clinic, so we walked over to see about the xray, to be told we had to come back in the afternoon.  This was alright, we went home for lunch, then returned where the radiologist poked and prodded also.  By the time they finished I was so sore and warn out I just wanted to head home to bed.  I asked when my doctor would have the results and was told Friday. 

On Thursday we drove to meet Bears sister and bil for lunch.  On the way I received a phone call from the doctors surgery to tell me they had found something in the xrays, nothing urgent.  The down side of this was the doctor was away until Monday.  So we spent all weekend worrying about what they had found. Went to the doctor first thing this morning to be told no cracked ribs. YAY!  Always knew I was a hard nut to crack!  The xray showed spinal arthritis which I knew about anyway, so no biggy.  Just need plenty of TLC until I recover.

Bear is raring to go with such an itchy hand, I have already been on the receiving end of several hard swats.  Don't think it will be too much longer before this is happening.  MMMM!

 One good thing that has come out of this incident, Bear has given me his good camera.  He told me from now on I have to use the telephoto lens and not walk in dangerous places. So now I'm hoping to take much better photos.

Have a good week everyone.

Do any of you say things happen in 3s.  I do and ever single time it gets me in hot water with my Bear.  He says its only because people count them in threes yet there would be more incidents.

So last night whilst tucked up snuggly in bed, it dawned on me that last Monday when I took my big slippery slide something happened in 3s.  As I mentioned previously we stopped half way on the way back from shopping to boil the billy (make a cup of tea).  I had my mishap with my fall, so that is the first incident.  Second Bear couldn't get the stove to stay alight so we never had our cuppa.  Something was wrong with the gas getting through to the jet. Which was annoying as if we hadn't of stopped I wouldn't have slipt down the embankment.  Then we decided to pack up with me sitting on a towel so the car didn't get muddy.  Bear stopped to go to the loo and his wallet fell in the urinal.  EEEWWW! There you have it..... it happens in 3s.  LOL!  I haven't dare mention this to my Bear though.

Its now Friday my back is still sore and swollen.  One good thing I'm receiving a nightly massage as Bear went to the chemist for some liniment and strong pain killers.  Along with this nightly massage is a lecture though which I don't fancy.  I would much prefer if he would spank me then we could move on. I've been put on a short leash whilst out from now on, staying close to Bear at all times. Not wander off by myself to take photos and definitely  not  allowed  near any cliff faces or embankments anymore.  This makes it a bit hard during whale season here as everyone stands on the top of the cliff to take photos.

Back to the liniment it is apparently used on horses as well.  So I figured if it works well I might be able to enter as a filly in the Melbourne Cup in November to win the race. Anyone got a carrot for a hungry horse?  Neigh! You got to dream.

Have a good weekend everyone.

very sore backside

I'm currently sitting here on a very sore backside.  Ok, you can stop thinking I've been a very naughty girl and been spanked.  Wish I had as it would feel better than this.

Bear and I went on a very nice shopping trip today.  As its so far from home we decided to stop half way enjoy some  refreshments.  Whilst Bear was boiling the kettle I said I'd go for a wonder to take photos. Huge mistake! 

At first the ground was alright, then it got a bit slushy as we've had so much rain lately.  Then I had to take a detour around a rather large puddle but didn't think to turn back.  When taking my photos I am very determined.  I stood on an embankment taking photos of the river, next thing I know I was flat on my back down the bottom.  Lucky for me I stopped in time before going into the river. 

My glasses flew off my head in one direction, my mobile flew in the other direction. I sat there for ages contemplating what to do about my predicament.  Once I found both items, I checked my phone to find there was no reception what so ever, which meant I couldn't call Bear for help.  So I only had one choice to pick myself up, find my way back  in a safer way. It felt like it took forever walking back as my whole spine felt jolted.

On arriving back at the picnic table I turned around showing Bear my back which was totally covered in mud.  I was expecting some sympathy yet all I received was a comment.....

'That'll teach you for playing in mud.'

I explained what happened saying how sore I felt. 

To which he replied 'Also  a hurt pride.'

I think by tomorrow I'm going to be black and blue.  Won't be so stupid as to wander off by myself again in that sort of area.  Lesson learnt the hard way!

2nd Blogiversary

Today the 16th July   Down under Dreaming is 2 years old. Well that time has gone by in a blink of an eye.  Its been wonderful getting to know each and everyone one of you and learning so much from reading all of your posts.  At times I think no one will want to hear about the life of Bear and Lindy.  For some strange reason there is this  pull though to type events when they happen. I raise my glass to you all.  Cheers!

Recently I've been able to face time several  bloggers, so am able to learn a bit more about their lives, which is absolutely fabulous.  I said to one of them it makes me feel like one of the cool group. LOL!

Thank you all for sticking by me over the past 2 years, for all your lovely responses to my posts and advice when I needed it most.  Thank you PK for talking me into blogging, its been a wonderful time. I know  few have come and gone during this period, which is really sad.  Hopefully there are many more years left for Down under Dreaming  and TTWD in the land.

Hugs Lindy and Bear

PK asks?

I'm sure everyone knows the famous words of Forrest Gump. 

“My mamma  always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.” 

Well that about sums up TTWD for me and maybe for a lot of us in the land. I've read quite often that some of our men are not consistent and its been a while since our last spanking.

PK wrote a blog titled  Still thinking about the spanking lifestyle and asked the following questions 

Will your man talk about TTWD with you? Are you so established in what you do that you don’t need to discuss it any longer? Would you like to talk about it with him? Do you talk face to face or email? If you don’t really talk about it is there anything you would like to tell your guy about TTWD that you think he should understand better.

I must admit the post you wrote PK could be my life.  Bear is such a gentle man he is afraid of hurting me to a certain degree. Although he has also said he is afraid of liking it too much by really spanking hard. He doesn't want to be the 'boss' of me on a full time basis either. Yet I've taken a step back since we moved leaving most of the final decisions to him. Not that we don't discuss purchases at times, just that Bear decides which items we need.

So in answer to your questions

Will your man talk about TTWD with you?

Bear will talk about TTWD a tiny  bit.  He was surprised  when I talked to some friends recently via face time that others DO practice TTWD.  Although we have talked about it previously, he obviously thought it was our little secret. He had heaps of questions for me once I was off the phone.  This also spurred him on for a short time, pity it didn't last.

Are you so established in what you do that you don’t need to discuss it any longer?

We seem to run either HOT or COLD with TTWD.  So no we are not established enough. Some days Bear wears his HOH hat so well I have to watch my Ps and Qs.  On these days every opportunity he gets, he gives me hard swats or a full on spanking. 
Other days he isn't interested at all, leaving me feeling confused.  We seem to have set backs when either of us is sick also.  Which makes it hard to get back in the swing of things.

Would you like to talk about it with him?

Definitely if he will sit down for a lengthy discussion. Its hard to pin point a good time.

Do you talk face to face or email?

We talk face to face.  When we were first married I used to write him letters. Bear thinks the written word can be taken the wrong way and can hurt more than a proper conversation.  So I try to talk to him.  Some times its successful, other times he seems to change the subject very fast, which is frustrating.

If you don’t really talk about it is there anything you would like to tell your guy about TTWD that you think he should understand better.

I would really love to tell him that consistency would help a great deal.  I need to know where my boundaries are  daily, instead of chopping and changing. Also with regular spankings I seem to have a higher pain threshold, yet with the odd one here and there its too hard to take.  I wimp out.

In the end I know Bear loves me with all his heart and would never do anything to upset me.  Yet I still feel like I'm crazy wanting to be spanked, yet I can't change the way I am.  I throw my hands up in the air saying I'll just read more of my 'dirty books' as D1 calls them and leave my fantasies in my head. It seems to nag at me though until I blurt out to Bear spank me.

Happy 4th July to all my friends in the USA.  Hope you're all having a wonderful celebration.

How are you really?

September 14th is RUOK day in Australia, it should be world wide.  Have you ever been asked are you ok, to just say yes I'm fine? ...
