Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends,  had scrummy meals and received nice presents.

Our recent trip to see our family was fabulous.  Not everything went to plan due the extremely hot weather.   We did manage a few outings and had some lovely photos taken with our 7 little dwarves up a tree with Bear and I below. During the week we made so many wonderful memories but the time flew.  Why does it always fly when you're having so much fun, not fair?

I was on my best behaviour the whole time so no spanking went on.  Not only was the weather sizzling but there was plenty of sizzling morning, afternoon and evening delight.

Then unfortunately it was time to return home to our little port.  We decided to go by ferry rather than risk the Melbourne traffic to get from one side of the bay to the other.  This didn't cut down the travelling time though.  It took us eight hours to drive home with a few stops along the way.  We were both exhausted, so I made a quick salad for dinner.  Bear decided we should have wine with it,  that was a HUGE mistake as then I was tired and emotional as I wanted to be back with our family. After giving me a cuddle to calm me down Bear restored my sparkle with the spatula.  Ouch!

We had one day to rest and recuperate before our long  drive for our Christmas dinner in a hotel which was delicious.  Then we returned home to relax and face-timed all of our family. Whilst we were enjoying our Christmas day 120 homes were lost in a bush fire along the Great Ocean Road. We always used to holiday down there for Christmas when our children were little.  Feel so sorry for all the families loosing all their possessions.

Since Christmas day we have been busy spring cleaning for D1 and little J to arrive to spend the new year with us.  I'm really looking forward to this as we always have so much fun.  There is a carnival  and heaps of entertainment down on the foreshore with fire works new years eve.  D1 will most likely be catching up on sleep as little J stays awake all night most nights. So we will keep him entertained hopefully.

I've been prodding Bear for a spanking for the past week or two but he seems to enjoy teasing me by saying "No you would enjoy it, so I won't spank you." Each day I try my hardest to prod him without success. 
Until today I was about to make a salad for dinner when he came up behind me for a  cuddle.  I turned around with some vegetables still in my hand and held them on his neck saying in a cheeky voice "Is that cold?"

He told me "Right young lady go straight to the bedroom, that deserves a spanking."

Yay I won!  It was a delicious hand spanking with plenty of delightful after care.  Hopefully this lasts whilst D1 is visiting, although I can't see Bear hanging out that long for some special cuddles. We will try to be on our best behaviour though and not get caught like last time.

I will try popping in to read everyone's blogs whilst D1 is here.  Just in case I can't,  thought it best to wish you all a Happy and safe New Year.   Hope 2016 brings you all good health, happiness and plenty of spanking.

Guess the Christmas Carols

Spanking is off the table at the moment in the Lindy/Bear house,  as Bear won't spank if I'm not feeling 100% well. That doesn't stop him from giving me some decent swats though.  Every morning when I come out after my shower he gives me a huge bear hug. 

Whilst I'm showering he is practicing his music. 
So as he cuddles me, my bottom becomes a drum for Christmas carols which I have to guess.
If I don't guess the swats become harder as he starts the tune over again.  Until I get the  rhythm 'n' beat and know the carol.  It's a fun way to lead up to Christmas especially seeing there are no OTKs going on.

We are off on a road trip of 500kms to visit our children and grandchildren Wednesday for an early family Christmas celebration.
It's going to be quite a shock for us with their weather, as here it has been in the high teens.  For example today is 17c here and where the kids live it is 29c and humid.

So hot, hot, SIZZLING HOT!

 They have so many activities planned for us in the week we are visiting.  Our eldest granddaughter is graduating primary school, so luckily we can attend her ceremony.  I think we will need a holiday to recover by the time we return home.

Will try to keep reading everyone's posts whilst we are away.  So have a nice relaxing time leading up to Christmas everyone and catch up when I can.

Goldilocks and the 3.....2... no only .......one Bear

Goldilocks hasn't been feeling herself for the past week.  Tired and walking around with fog brain so not functioning properly.  Wednesday nights Goldilocks and Papa Bear usually compile a shopping list for the following day.  Papa Bear does the shopping (yes I know I'm spoilt), it just works out better that way for different reasons. Anyway seeing Goldilocks was away with the fairies, Papa Bear compiled the list by himself, and didn't consult Goldilocks at all.

After  shopping Thursday we both put the groceries away, so I wasn't sure what exactly Papa Bear bought.  Until it came time to cook dinner that night.  I went to the fridge to find no fresh vegetables.  I asked if he had bought them and perhaps left them in the car.   His reply was 'You didn't ask for them'.  What, how is it turned around to be my fault when I was unaware of what was on the list? So Goldilocks became a bit grumpy and maybe said a few things which are not particularly wise for someone who practices DD/TTWD.

So Friday Papa Bear gave Goldilocks a list of errands to run after my art class.   One was to buy the vegetables and the other to buy stamps for our Christmas cards. 

Goldilocks enjoyed a lovely two hours at  art class amongst a bunch of lovely ladies listening to relaxation cds and chilling out. Once the class was finished I took my art supplies back to the car and went shopping.  At the post office  I asked for the exact number of stamps we required.  Went off to the side  desk and placed a stamp on every single envelope or so I thought.  To my surprise there was one spare, so I checked and rechecked.  Then thought I mustn't have counted properly in the first place.  I then posted the cards but had a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach something must be wrong. Guess we won't know if everyone receives their cards as some are to elderly relatives who don't reply anyway.

On returning home I explained to Papa Bear the circumstances and he was not at all pleased as you can well imagine. He lectured me on how I need to slow down and check things more thoroughly. I knew I should have brought the cards home to do them and he pointed this out also.  So  I was preparing my  lunch and Papa Bear prepared his porridge, which he eats at lunch time and yes even though it is now summer here, still has it hot. Next thing I know he started spanking me with his porridge spoon over my skirt.  He felt my bottom and realised I had my lacie boylegs on which he liked the feel of.  Next thing he lifted my skirt and whacked me a few times over my panties, they soon came down though and he started in with hard thwacks.  I was actually enjoying the feel but thought I better add some sound effects to make him happy.  So OUCHED a few times.   He lectured me about my general behaviour during the week and how I need to improve my attitude.

Saturday morning we went to a church fete  mainly to check the church out.  My art teacher happened to be on one of the stalls, so told Papa Bear how I was an extremely good colourist as she has named us all.  Also that I've brought a lot of great ideas to the class to share and how wonderful it has been.  Papa Bear was very impressed with this. Then we wandered down to the foreshore where they held the annual   toy run market.  A group of bikies collected toys to distribute to children less fortunate.  We had a lovely morning walking around in the sunshine, then returned home to prepare lunch.  I was bending over to see what was in the fridge that looked interesting and Papa Bear swatted me again with his porridge spoon.

Lunch was put on hold whilst we enjoyed a bit of a play and nap.

 We woke up  starving and agreed it was a fantastic way to spend the day. 

Have a good week everyone.
Hugs Lindy

Saturday, 28 November 2015


The school bell rang and all the students filed into their classrooms.  As usual the teacher stood at the front of the class.

'Good morning everybody.'

'Good morning PK.'

Then PK makes an announcement..........

 'It has been brought to my attention that one of our fellow students has destroyed good literature.  This has really stressed me out to the point I think this person should be punished.'

All the students gasped as they couldn't believe anyone would do such a thing.

'Will that person please come to the front of the class and explain what they did.'

  PK said 'I want you to take this note to the principals office immediately. I'm not happy with you at all and you deserve a spanking for destroying spanking literature.  What a sin to commit!'

  Hanging my head in shame I took the note and head out the door to the principals office.

                  Go to the principals office directly, do not pass go,  do not collect $200.

As I walk along the corridor my legs feel like jelly and I have huge butterflies in my tummy.

Knock knock!

 The principal calls out

 Once he sees me he says.....
'not you AGAIN Lindy, how many times have you visited my office this week?  What have you done this time young lady?'

'I destroyed literature Sir, so Pk has ordered me to be spanked.'

 I hand over the note to him and as he reads it he gets a smirk on his face, as he thinks its very interesting she has asked for particular implements.

'So how many stories have you destroyed young lady?'

I whisper 'Three Sir.'

'MMMM sounds like you do deserve to learn a valuable lesson.  Come over here and bend over my desk .'

'Please  Sir can't I just write lines or have a detention?' 

'No definitely not this is too serious a matter, a spanking is called for immediately.'

On wobbly legs I proceed to walk to Principal Bears desk and bend over.

 He raises my skirt and says  
'of course those panties must come down also.'

 I start to protest but he quickly stops me by saying would you like extras young lady?
So Principal Bear puts his finger into the waist band of my panties and lowers them to my knees.

 He grabs the wooden ruler off his desk and starts slowly spanking me. 

 I'm just lying there calmly so he thinks its not making any impression, so turns the ruler on its side and continues.  This produces the reaction he is looking for as I'm now ouching and ooowwwing which he thinks is funny. After giving me a good warming with the wooden ruler he says time to move onto the belt.

'I should use my heavy belt but will go easy on you and use my lighter belt.'

I thank him as I hate the heavy belt.  Even when he applies it lightly it still stings.  So he goes to his draw to retrieve the belt and starts swinging lightly and slowly builds up.  He strikes so hard after a while I'm finding it hard to stay in position and start squirming around trying to avoid the sting which is building up.  Principal Bear is admiring how red it is looking, then ups his swing even harder.  My eyes are starting to water, yet I'm still laughing for some reason.  So he thinks my bottom is too tough and uses more force. On every stroke I'm ouching and trying to move away from it but he continues admiring his handy work.  He loves seeing how red my bottom becomes.

I start begging him to stop saying 'I will be a good girl from now on and won't destroy any literature again I promise. '
 He continues  on for at least another 10 strokes then decides I've learnt my lesson. He lectures me and asks why I deleted the stories.

I tell him 'the stories sound good in my head, then when I come to write them it doesn't look as good, so I lose my confidence and press delete.  All my friends write much better spanking stories and I feel like a failure.'

He is not pleased with my answer that I thought they were stupid and not good enough to be added to PK's  Fantasy Friday blog.
Principal Bear doesn't allow me to put myself down and says...

 'That is a punishable offence in itself.' 

 He thinks my bottom has had enough for one day and assures me there will be another spanking in my near future.

Then to my horror Principal Bear calls a full school assembly straight away, marches me in on very wobbly legs and onto the stage.  He told me I have to make an apology to PK firstly then to the whole of blog land school.

  I turn to PK and say .......

 'I'm so sorry PK for destroying literature and promise never to do it again.  In future I will keep it and revisit it to see how I can improve. Please, please, please forgive me PK?'

PK tells me 'I have to apologise to all  the people out there in blog land who read her Fantasy Friday. '
 'Sorry fellow bloggers for deleting my stories.  It won't happen again I promise. Hope you all enjoy reading future stories of mine. When I recover from this humiliating spanking.'

Have a good week
Hugs Lindy

To all my American blog friends Happy Thanksgiving.  Hope you all have a wonderful time with family and friends.  Enjoy your holidays and don't over indulge.

Happy Spanksgiving 
Hugs Lindy


Here is another meme from Ella.  Have you ever, ever,  evers.......

1.  Said something very rude to a doctor during childbirth?

With my first two babies I was very placid and didn't say boo. Then when I was having  my third baby  I let it rip.  I had an older doctor and had asked him not to send Bear out at all during my labor.  So what does he do, sends him out and he nearly missed the birth. I wasn't aware of it at the time but a midwife told me the next day I dropped the F bomb telling him to get my husband back in.

2.  Seen someone pop their eyeball out?

No think I would be sick if I did.  We had a one eyed cat that was bad enough.

3.  Had your stomach pumped?

No and hope I never have to.

4.  Been to a drag show with a very large gay man?

Been to a drag show yes many years ago

5.  Eaten a worm?


6.  Run a nifty, little money-making business when you were 11-12 years old buying girlie magazines for the boys in the neighbourhood?

No my money making was a newspaper for the neighbourhood.  I interviewed local people and did a weekly paper which I sold to them.

7.  Crawled through an underground storm sewer for 5 blocks?

No I'm not a ninja turtle

8.  Lied about your weight?

Yes when both my brother and one of my sisters asked me how much I weighed after losing so much weight.

9.  Needed your husband to help you up the stairs because you were inebriated?

Only on one occasion when it was a special birthday ending in a _0.

10.  Seen a movie star in an airport?

Not in an airport but walking along the beach. 

11.  Walked out of a movie?

yes when we were first married Bear took me to a movie and I was so scared we left.

12.  Sat on a jury?

No been called up but luckily enough we were going away so got out of it.

13.  Told a child, "Because I said so."

Yes more so to my grandchildren rather than my own children.

14.  Ran a cash register in a small grocery store when you were 8 years old?

No I have worked in retail though but not when I was 8.

15.  Wrote a eulogy for a parent?

Not for my parents but Bears mum.  Our son conducted the funeral service and we all said our bit.

16.  Heard a song you were sure was written and sung just for you?

sure have but can't remember it now.  My dad always used to sing a song when I was little went something like 'And your daddies little girl' 

17.  Roasted chestnuts on an open fire?

no don't think I've ever had a chest nut

18.  Eaten 44 shrimp at one sitting?

Eaten shrimps (prawns) but not 44.  We usually have bbq prawns for new years eve.

19.  Thrown all phones in a drawer for the entire weekend?

no sounds like a good idea though.  Maybe that is the next thing Bear and I should do.

20.  Gone on a vacation all by yourself?

Yes and hated it.  I was so lonely so never repeated that experience.

Thanks for the fun meme Ella.  I enjoyed doing this one.

Banned from face book as a punishment

Last week Bear  banned me from going on face book for a week to see if it improved my moods.  At first I though NO WAY  I can't last a week without checking in each day.  I was allowed to still have contact with our girls via inbox on my phone as this didn't allow me to see what was happening on FB.  To make it easier Bear decided to join me.

Our usual lunch time routine used to be eat lunch, then check our fb on our phones.  Mostly Bear would be tagging me in various things instead of just showing me.  Even though he was sitting right next to me at the table.  So the break from this was fantastic.  We actually communicated more during the week off FB and enjoyed it. Also I managed to get my craft room sorted and heaps of crafts finished. From now on we are limiting our access so we don't spend so much wasted time on there.

During the week though I did have one slip up where I thought I was going to an inbox message from D1 but she had tagged me in a FB message which took me directly into it.  I felt really guilty and confessed to Bear expecting to face the consequences.  To my surprise he said don't worry about it as he had just done the exact same thing.  From then on I was extra careful not to repeat this mistake.

Our week off face book has taught us that it is like having a bucket of water, putting your hand in and pulling it back out.  You haven't left an impression behind.  I was amazed that during the week of my absence no one bothered to contact me to check if I was alright.  Particularly seeing I'm on FB so much and share lots of quotes on there.

Strangely enough once our week was up we found this  dare to stay off for 3 months.  Just have to find someone to pay me the $3 million  and I'm in.  Anyone want to join me?  Although I would miss my blogging friends too much I think.

The Great Online Cookie Exchange Extravaganza returns!

It must have been this time last year when I was a lurker I looked on with envy at my now fellow bloggers partaking in this recipe exchange.  I so wished I could have joined in the fun.  So this year I've contacted Jz to add my name to the list.
Hope you are all interested,  will be fun to see everyone's recipes and especially find some new gluten free ones to try.
Copied from Jz    from    A Reluctant Bitch........
"Dust off your baking pans, because on Wednesday, December 9th 2015

The Great Online Cookie Exchange Extravaganza returns!

Won't YOU please join us?

It's easy to play along. 

Just post a recipe that day for a holiday goodie -- any goodie. 

It doesn't have to be for cookies… or even be sweet.

We do not discriminate against any goodie.

(We are equal opportunity consumers around here.)

That's pretty much all there is to it.

Mystery downunder

Something mysterious is happening downunder which I can't quite explain. Most of last week I was feeling in such a weird mood, kept putting myself down by saying things which Bear doesn't allow me to do, and was generally not a nice person to be around.  The little voices in my head tried saying stop doing it you are being stupid and the other voices kept encouraging me to carry on. I had a case of the CBFs, felt a tight feeling in my chest and was tired all the time even though I was sleeping properly. I was supposed to be meeting a group of ladies from one of my groups for afternoon tea last Thursday but didn't go as I was feeling anti social and just wanted to be a hermit.

Bear was pulling his hair out and he wasn't sleeping as he was worried about my behaviour.  I had a daily trip OTK for a sound spanking with his NICE belt to try to pull me back in.  This worked temporarily by making me feel better as I love his nice  belt.  Then the next morning wham the nasty Lindy reared her head again.  Bear even took me to one of our favourite cafes for afternoon tea and a walk along the beach which I usually love.

I was talking to our girls  about it and they both mentioned how they felt exactly the same. They were both treating their partners horribly and couldn't fathom why they were doing it. Then we found out a lot of our female friends also felt this way.  Exact same tight feeling in the chest and in a really bad mood for no apparent reason. So I said to my girls I wonder if it is the phase of the moon or something.  We ruled out hormonal as a cause. The feeling is starting to shift but what ever it is I hope it doesn't visit again too soon.

Bear has stepped up his Domish ( is there such a word)  ways with me by saying did I give you permission to do  what ever it is I am doing.  To which I respond in the sweetest voice I can 'No Sir', so then I have to ask him. He also insists on me calling him Sir more.  We went to the movies this afternoon to see The Martian which was absolutely great.  Before we went he warned me to behave  or   I would be in big trouble.  I'm pleased to say we sat through the whole movie holding hands and I was on my best behaviour.

I wonder if it is something to do with what's happening  in the  world.  Especially the recent incident in Paris, those poor innocent people.  I am so worried for  our children and grandchildren. What does the future hold for them all.

I'm so excited to be joining in LOVE OUR LURKERS 10th ANNIVERSARY this year.

I was a lurker until this year then I came out after writing a story for PK from New Beginnings.  Would love to get to know everyone out there.  So if you are hiding behind your computer and shy like I was don't be afraid to drop by and say 'Hi'.  Always fun to meet new lurkers and bloggers.

Pull up a  comfortable chair, make yourself a cuppa and tell me a little bit about yourself and what the name of your blog is if you have one.   If you don't maybe you should think about writing one.  I certainly hesitated but now you can't stop me. Sometimes I think maybe I'm boring everyone with my blogs but guess they don't have to read them if they choose not to. Or maybe leave an anonymous comment if you prefer. 

A little about myself.  I'm happily married for over 35 years and Bear and I have spiced up our life with TTWD which has brought us even closer.  I used to think there was something wrong with me for wanting to be spanked.  I have since learnt through blogs there are heaps of like minded people out there is blog land.  So feel free to comment, ask questions or just say 'Hi'. We share practically everything and I have learnt heaps from other bloggers which makes me feel better.

Also an added bonus I'm now emailing two other bloggers and exchanging gluten free recipes.  So who knows where TTWD leads in meeting people!

So come out, come out where ever you are!

Thanks Hermione for hosting  this years LOL day.  Hope everyone has fun. cheers Lindy

Noisy residence!

Meet our latest visitors.  We arrived home from our shopping trip today to find we not only have one koala, but two in our tree outside our bedroom.  Last night we heard weird noises which were similar to a motor bike revving.  Apparently it is mating season so the buck in the close ups was trying to get the female hiding amongst the leaves,  interested in a bit of sex.

Our neighbour told us if she has a baby in her pouch, he will kill it just to have sex with her.  Obviously koalas don't stick to one partner. Guess tonight is going to be another noisy night.

So for years we have heard overseas people ask do kangaroos and koalas really walk down the street in Australia.  Living in the city our answer to that was no they are only found in paddocks.  Well after living in our current area we can now answer yes they do.  It is not uncommon to see a koala wonder inside a shop or down the street past all the cafes.  Kangaroos roam up and down the streets and also when we drive to Mt Gambier in South Australia from our house we also see heaps of emus wandering around the pine plantations.  We are never too old to learn something new.

role reversals

On Saturday I decided to Spring clean my craft room.  So firstly emptied it completely, then asked Bear to help me rearrange the furniture.  After the two of us struggled to move the sofa bed which we didn't realise was so heavy,  I plonked myself down on it before proceeding to do anything else.

Bear asked me in his HOH voice  'Did I give you permission to sit down'.  I cheekily replied well spank me then.  Funnily enough he placed himself over my knee and said 'Spank me I've been a naughty boy'.  I only managed to spank him four times over his jeans then he hopped up quickly declaring he is the spanker  in our house, as he didn't like that at all.

Have any of you ever reversed your roles with your HOH and tried spanking them?  I very much doubt it will be happening again in our house  but it was fun to try.

Giggling teenagers

Well that was an interesting week with our daughter and grandson staying here. Little J, 7 y.o. is special needs so we learnt 101 ways to have a melt down and get your own way.  Bear tried enforcing 'its our house this is the way its done' to no avail.  His poor Mumma is exhausted from being on the go constantly with him as he hardly sleeps.  So she took advantage of catching up on extra sleep whilst we entertained little J.  He only communicates through his ipad, which is interesting as he talks with several different accents.

Bears palm became very twitchy with me and he took advantage every time we were in a room alone to give me a hard swat.  Also after being sick for over a week, then family staying he wanted a bit of action in both the spanky and lovey fields.  We thought we were safe once our daughter took Little J out to watch a ship departing.  So we snuck off to the bedroom for some fun.  Bear only closed the door over instead of completely shut AND we got sprung.  OOPS!

Then every night Bear was in the mood in bed but our bed is a bit noisy and our bedroom is only a short distance from the guest room.  We started getting passionate, then squeak, squeak of our silly bed  which turned us into teenagers  giggling like trying to hide from parents.  Mr Spanky Man took full advantage as soon as our daughter and Little J drove away yesterday.  I was nervous they might return for some reason and get sprung again, so couldn't relax.

So hopefully back to normal living until Christmas time now.  I do love having them here  and miss them terribly  but it is so tiring, so we feel like we need a holiday to recover.

have a good week Lindy

Just popping in early to wish everyone a Happy Halloween.  My family doesn't celebrate it as we feel you teach your children stranger danger then allow them to go door knocking for lollies.  How safe is that???? Also there are so many warnings about what people might give your child, so we have always chosen not to participate.  Halloween hasn't been a huge thing in Australia until the past few years.  Now people are getting into the spirit with parties and decorating their houses.

We will be busy in our little town with another celebration this weekend called the Upwelling festival which is to do with the whale season. So there will be an influx of visitors from all over Australia coming to join in the fun weekend.  Also it is an extra long weekend for the Melbourne Cup (horse races).

Anyway hope you all have a fun Halloween if you celebrate it and perhaps even get a Halloween spanking if your lucky.
Have a good weekend every one.
Hugs Lindy

Universe is against us!

This past weekend we were supposed to go away for two nights to a lovely little beach side place where my dad was born and both our families have a lot of history in this area.  We were both  looking forward to exploring the area more and seeing where our families grew up. 

Things were against us from the start.  Firstly I was supposed to be seeing a specialist whilst in this area but my doctor forgot to write the referral letter.  Therefore I had to cancel the appointment I have been waiting months to attend. We decided we would still go as we had booked our accommodation.

Saturday we had most of our things packed in the car ready for a quick get away Sunday.  I got up around 4am to go to the toilet and Bear informed me we wouldn't be going as he had been awake all night feeling ill. It is very rare for him to become sick so I was really worried.  I offered to make him a cup of tea to see if it helped. Whilst drinking our tea I said to him what about if I offer our trip on face book rather than lose our money.  Bear agreed so when he went back to bed I stayed up to do that.

  I was most surprised we didn't get any takers.  Who knocks back two nights fully paid accommodation.  So we thought we would end up losing our money after all, when I came up with an idea to ring Bears sister.  She jumped at the opportunity to have two nights away with her husband.  On arrival she messaged us teasing  saying how nice it was and then again today she rang telling us all about it. Think she was trying to make us jealous.  Guess the universe was against us with one thing after another.

It is now Tuesday night and Bear is still feeling poorly but he is being stubborn and refusing to go to the doctors. He has a really short fuse at the moment as I just said something which wouldn't usually annoy him at lunch time today.  He bent me over the kitchen bench and spatulated (Katie you saying)  me with that horrid spatula.  Ouch my bottom was on fire for ages afterwards.  Note to self 'don't poke the Bear whilst he's sick.'

Fingers crossed he is better by Friday as we have D1 and her little boy arriving for a special festival in our home town during the weekend.

Have a good week everyone.
Hugs Lindy

Couldn't resist Ella's meme on Husbands.  So pleased to introduce you to my Bear.

1.  Name a favorite movie of his.  Do you like it, too?  If he doesn't have a favorite movie, substitute a TV series.

Christmas Vacation for sure Bear and our son watched it every year and can almost recite it word for word. I used to like it but find it boring now.  Feel like we have worn the spots off it.

2.  Tell us something you cook or bake that gets him so happy.  Do you add something special that makes your recipe unique?

My chicken and mushroom risotto.  Bear thinks its better than any restaurants, so that's a compliment. The only things special I add is love.

3.  What does he wear to bed.

We both sleep in the nude as enjoy skin to skin contact whilst spooning. 

4.  Does he have or has he ever grown a beard or mustache?  Did you (or do you) like it or not?

Yes off and on all our married life.  I love him with a goatee as it tickles.  Then he gets sick of it and shaves it off.  So I beg him to grow it again.


5.  If they were going to make a movie of your husband, what actor would you pick to play him?

Sean Connery would be my favourite as he is so sexy and I love his voice.


6.  Who is neater around the house, you or him?  Then give us a sloppy example.

We both have our moments where we are neat and then clutter our house up again.  we are both hoarders which is not good. when we left our old house we had a huge clear out but still appear to have too much for our smaller house.


7.  If you could buy him tickets to any concert (even if it's from the past), what musician or group would be singing or playing?

Bear really loves the EAGLES so think that would be it.


8.  Does he wear a wedding ring?  Do you care?

Yes, he has always worn a wedding ring.  Unfortunately it is not the original as he lost it whilst swimming.  He quickly went out for a replacement. I love the fact he wears one.


9.  How old was he and how old were you on the day you met?  What else do you remember about that day?

Bear was almost 29 and I was 22.  We met on a blind date organised but a mutual friend and went to the movies and the pancake parlour. It was love at first site. My Mum was dying so we got engaged a month after meeting so she could see us.  Unfortunately she went into a coma that night so didn't see us marry eight months later.


10.  If he is the one to choose an ethnic restaurant for dinner out, would it be Chinese, Indian, Mexican, French, Italian, Greek, or ...........?

None Bear loves his steak.  So every time we go out he orders steak and vegetables.  Look this is even served on a paddle for afters. LOL!


11.  Is there a photo of him as a child that you find especially endearing?  Tell us about it.

In our old house I had a wall of photos of Bear and I as babies then underneath our children as babies like a family tree.  Bear looked so cute as he had a gorgeous blue and white romper suit on.

12.  If you were going to choose a dress in a color just to please him, what color would it be?

I think he would love any colour, he is not fussy that way.


13.  Do you (or did you) love his mother?  Why or why not?

Yes definitely.  I lost my Mum just after Bear and I met.  So his mum was  my second mum.  She spoilt me like a daughter and we got on really well. She lived until she was 93.


14.  Name a famous person he really admires.

One  of the former premiers of Victoria, Jeff Kennett.  He wishes he would be our next Prime Minister.


15.  How does your husband take his coffee or tea?

He makes his coffee in a Bodum Pebo pot.  Measures out the beans and grinds them fresh every lunch time.  Has to be exact!


16.  Does your man know how to dance?  Is it something you both enjoy?

He sure does.  We used to go dancing regularly when we were younger until I hurt my knee in my forties.  He still takes me for a twirl around the lounge room once in a while.


Can't wait to hear from all of you.  
Tell us about your favorite guy in the world.



Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. We hope you all enjoy celebrations with family and friends Please stay safe...
