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.

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. lindylouthomas1979@gmail.com

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!

FAVOURITE SEASON

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.

Hugs Lindy xx

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.

Superbear

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

DRIP DRIP DRIP

  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!

DRIP DRIP DRIP

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.



DRIP DRIP DRIP


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.


DRIP DRIP DRIP



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. 


DRIP DRIP DRIP


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.



DRIP DRIP DRIP



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. 



WOOF WOOF WOOF!



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.

Hugs Lindy xx
