Rick Answers

I love this meme posted by Lilli. One Rick has to answer instead of me lol and I thought it would be fun to find out what his answers would be.

A quick update first though. After having been back at work and in the building for a week we have now been evacuated again until repair work has been completed, which we have been told will be at least two weeks. We have staff meetings on Wednesday to provide more detail and are waiting to find out what plans will be put in place until we are back in the building, such as working out of another office etc.

While the time off is nice, it's also a bit unsettling and strange at the same time.

Thank You Blogland!

As most of you know we were struck with a severe magnitude 7.5 eahquake in the early hours of Monday morning. Since then I have received numerous emails from blog friends checking in and sending positive thoughts, best wishes and prayers.  Dear sweet Jan also put up a post.  I cried, in a good way :) when I read it.

I just want to say a huge thank you to Jan and to all of you who have been in contact.  I am deeply humbled, overwhelmed and once again reminded just how wonderful this community is.  I can't express how much it means to have your support at a time like this.

Things are slowly returning to normal...well semi normal but are not being helped now by torrential rain and strong winds to hamper the clean up process and disrupt transport again. Weather and slip related this time.

Fortunately, I  don't have to go anywhere today as work is once again closed to enable clean up.  We should be back to normal transmission tomorrow, depending on weather and transport I guess.

Rick and I are ok and fortunately haven't suffered any damage at home, but is has been a very scary couple of days and I am still feeling a little unsettled in the knowledge that the after shocks are continuing. Fortunately for me I haven't felt any in a while now...touch wood! They were pretty constant immediately following the main shock.

Thank you so much blogland. You are awesome ! :)

Hello blogland!

Hello everyone !  You can pick yourselves up off the floor now, yes it's me lol.

Gosh, it's been so long, waay too long! I'm sorry I have been awol, I have continued to read and comment though. Some of you have been asking and gently prodding me to post...Thank you :) I suppose some might say I should be spanked for neglecting the blog. Sadly, there is little chance of that happening.

I don't have much excuse except life taking over and the fact that writing posts on a tablet is just painful. That, coupled with not knowing what to say given the lack of ttwd here, which has been the case for some time now.

Where to start? I  can't believe how quickly this year is flying by! As some of you know, the year began with Rick recovering from major heart surgery then as soon as he recovered I ended up very ill from a viral infection which took almost two months to recover.

We can't believe it is almost a year since Rick's surgery. Wow! He is doing fantastic and although he has basically recovered the body is continuing to heal and he still has some discomfort. Did I mention his impressive scars? Oh and he occasionally sets off shop metal detectors. Fun!

There have been changes for both of us on the work front too with more to come. With everything that's gone on this year we are both more than happy at the moment to just 'be' and enjoy each other. There have been the odd "do you want it back?", "I don't know, do you?" conversations though. We have continued to have some light spanky action for fun on occasion. I could definitely do with more of that! But, you know, I'm really not sure about the rest, I'm conflicted. Part of me thinks I want it back and part of me doesn't. Perhaps because it has been so long.

In other news, long time readers may recall that Rick is a huge Bruce Springsteen fan and that we were able to see him here in gud ole NZ a couple of years ago. It was something we never thought would happen and a dream come true. The fantastic news is that he and the band are coming back our way next February. Woohoo! The only thing is, there will be two concerts in two different cities and neither of them our city. One of them happens to be Rick's home city though which is cool. We are going to go to both and have our tickets because, wrll, did I mention Rick is a huge fan? lol. It's going to be manic traveling to two different cities within a few days of each other but well worth it.

On the family front Mum and Dad are continuing to cope extremely well with Mum's dementia. I honestly don't know sometimes how Dad does it day in day out. It can be hard and draining some times just visiting. It's funny, each visit is different. Good days and not so good days. Mum had her birthday fairly recently and it wasn't a good day for her. Dad commented as such and she replied it's the shock of turning 76 lol. Maybe it wasn't such a bad day after all!

We are now in spring here. Well supposedly. The weather is quite fickle with overall mild temperatures but showrrs and rain off and on and awful winds.

We wait with baited breath for the outcome of the US Presidential election this week which will be Wednesday here.

I see Love our Lurkers day is coming up. I guess you could say anyone who has visited here over the last few months is a lurker, since there hasn't been anything to comment on. I always enjoy this event. Not sure yet if I will post, but will definitely enjoy visiting everyone.

Hope you are all doing well.

About Time!

Hi everyone,

Gosh, I don't know where to start, I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long. We have had a lot going on since last November. It's fair to say it's been a bizarre and difficult year so far. I'm definitely ready for things to settle down and for some normalcy.

Long weekend for us so while I had some time I wanted to connect with my blog friends. I also wanted to say a very overdue and heartfelt thank you to those of you who have been in contact with me over the last few months and who have offered us such wonderful support. This community really is amazing and the friendships made here go much deeper than our shared interest in ttwd. I am so sorry that I have taken so long to thank you all.

Rick is doing fantastically well and is fully recovered from his surgery last November. He is a different man now and has lost quite a bit of weight during his recovery. He is so happy about that and is determined to keep it that way and is doing a lot of walking and eating healthier. We are now in competition with each other lol.

I would have thought Rick's surgery and recovery were enough but it seems life hadn't quite finished with us. We both went back to work at the beginning of February looking forward to getting back to some normalcy. I only lasted a week then ended up off work for a month sick. It seems I had a virus which badly affected my liver. I had no energy and somehow lost coordination and was very unstable on my feet was constantly exhausted.  I also lost the ability to communicate clearly. Oh, and I lost weight, most of which I have since re-gained lol. It was a scary time wondering, and worrying about what was wrong. It was Rick's turn to worry about me. He has joked about me getting my own back lol.

My blood levels are still not quite back to normal, but almost there and I am back to my old self.

To cap things off I returned to work only to return to find out I was being moved, which added to the stress levels.

Ttwd wise, as most of you know, we haven't practiced ttwd for a long time now. Ttwd did bring many benefits to our relationship though, such as greater communication, more intimacy and a greater feeling of connection and overall how we interact.

I'm happy to say that although Rick and Rozzi land has been devoid of ttwd and any spanking action, many of the benefits it brought to our relationship have remained. Yes, there may not be much kink happening, but the important  (IMHO) aspects of it have remained.

Having said the above, I did receive a light, fun spanking last weekend :)  It was definitely a spanking of the fun kind and Rick took it easy given I hadn't been spanked in so long. I commented on the old familiar tingling, stinging feeling I hadn't felt in so long and Rick commented on enjoying the old familiar sight of a red bottom lol. Rick found his Dom side again in other ways too :)

I don't really see this as a return to ttwd, more of a spur of the moment thing, but I'm not complaining :)

I guess that catches you up on what's been going on here. Thank you so much again for your wonderful support, it means so much. I hope this post finds you all well.

Merry Christmas!

Hi all, Rick and I just wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas! We hope you all have a wonderful time with family and friends.

Christmas feels a bit strange this year. As some of you know, Rick underwent major surgery four weeks ago and has a lot of recovery still ahead of him. He is doing well though and is slowly able to start doing more now. This also explains why my pressence in blogland has been a bit sporadic of late.

As you can imagine, it has been a stressful and worrying time. I am glad that Rick's recovery is during summer.

I also want to say a huge thank you to those who have been in contact with me and offered both of us so much support. I can't tell you how much your support means to us. This community really is so amazing.

Enjoy the holiday period and time with loved ones and if you are traveling, travel safe.

Rick and Roz

Hello blogland, yes I'm still here...I'm sure you gathered that from my comments on your posts lol. It's been a long time since I was here, too long and I just had the urge to connect with my friends and post.

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween weekend. It's not huge here in NZ so we didn't celebrate. We did have a great weekend though, especially with the All Blacks winning the Rugby World Cup at the weekend :) Our little country is in full celebration mode let me tell you!

Things are going well here and we are now in spring and daylight saving time, not that you would know it right now. Generally though the weather has been nice, and warm lately and I love the longer days.

It's been so long since I have posted I'm not sure what to update you on. Life goes on as normal. Work seems very trying at the moment. Perhaps just a sign that we are coming to the end of the year and I need a break lol.

You may recall we have been nursing one of our cats through cancer. She is still with us and holding her own really well. It is almost two years since diagnosis! None of us can believe ut, including the vets!

Rick and I are doing well,  though I do miss the extra that a power dynamic brings. The extra closeness and intimacy. We have been enjoying playing though :)

We have attended a BDSM function out of curiosity. It was a very interesting night! What struck me (pun intended lol) is that although there were obvious Dominants and submissives, there were no real power dynamic displays and the atmosphere was light and everyone was having fun. I don't know what I expected really.

We recently purchased some new toys too including nipple clamps, a flogger and a wartenberg wheel. I'm not such a fan of the clamps, Rick is unfortunately lol. The wheel is awesome, well, depending on how it is used. It can be heavenly or evil.

I had been curious, but nervous about floggers for a while. Well, turns out I have a love /hate relationship with it. Used lightly I love it, but with a bit of! It's amazing the reach the thing has, there doesn't seem to be any place it can't reach lol.

Rick definitely took a shine to the flogger once he got the swing of it, so to speak, Unfortunately though, it broke. I'm not sure if I'm happy about that or not lol.

We also recently had the opportunity to meet another spanko couple in person. It was so great to be able to talk freely and share some experiences and I hope to meet up with them again.

I think that's most of the news from Rick and Rozzi land for now. I hope you are all doing well.

Sex, Spanking and Rock 'N' Roll

I just had to come here and post so that I could use the title lol.

That was what Rick told me the other day our Saturday night would consist of ... and he delivered :)

Things have been busy here and unfortunately, this meant there hasn't been much play recently. Vanilla life seems to have taken over. There has been a recent birth in the family so I am trying to soak up as many baby cuddles as I can.

Mother Nature it seems has also had a bit to say. It is getting a lot colder now as we head to winter. We had torrential rain a couple of weeks ago which caused major flooding, public transport to grind to a halt and general chaos. However, we have since had some lovely, allbeit chilly days. We also had a fairly sizable earthquake a few weeks back.

Back to what you really want to know about ... the title.

As I said above, there hasn't been much play recently and this weekend is a long weekend here (Queen's Birthday weekend). We therefore planned a night Saturday to ourselves to reconnect and just enjoy each others company. In discussing the weekend Rick said sex, spanking and rock ' N ' roll lol.

It was a night of all three. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner together, some sounds, caught up on a couple of shows on tv and watched a movie. It wasn't uninterrupted though with a brief visit from a friend.

Later came time for the sex and spanking part of the night.

On my knees, his fingers pulling my hair and then pinching and pulling my nipples,  his hand at my throat and covering my mouth. I was guided to suck him by his hands in my hair.

Over the bed for a spanking with the leather paddle. Rick has taken to a new technique of spanking from side to side with a flicking motion. It hurts and I became rather vocal. He has also taken to using the paddle lightly on my back and thighs. That is heaven :) During this he was regularly checking to see how a certain part of me was responding.

He then had me stand with my arms above my head and his hands were every where at once. Once again pinching and pulling at my nipples. Next he proceeded to paddle me gently all over, paying particular attention to my breasts.

I'm sure you know how the rest goes :) It was a wonderful, and very late night.
