The First 100 Spanks ... er ... Posts

This is my 100th post.  Can you believe it?  Because I can't!

What an incredible journey it has been.  I have shared much here.  When I first started this blog it was a place for me to process my thoughts and feelings and a place to diary this incredible journey Rick and I have undertaken.

I never realised when I started what a truly amazing community I was joining.  That everyone here would come to mean so much to me and that I would bond and form beautiful friendships with some of you.  I never truly realised how supportive and encouraging this place is.  My only regret is that I didn't start blogging earlier.

Rick and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to you all for your kindness, support, friendship and for your invaluable advice.  I can't say how much you have helped us as we have navigated this sometimes tricky journey and continue to do so. We couldn't have done it without your support. My greatest hope is that in return I have managed to give a little of the same back in at least some small way.


If I can beg your indulgence I would like to recall some highlights that have occurred over the last 99 posts and 14 months that I have been blogging.  Some of you who have been with us for a while now may recall some of these.

When Rick and I were apart on one occasion and I was really struggling, missing his touch and presence I reached out to my blogland friends.  You were all there offering your support.  I can't tell you how much that meant to me and how much it boosted me and helped me through the time apart.

When, what I still believe to be the defining moment for us occurred.  You know the one we always talk about.  The moment your HoH 'gets it' and really steps up and you receive the spanking of your life.  You were there for us offering your support and advice and sharing your experiences.

Some of you may remember that one.  I had been to visit my parents, having to travel a notoriously dangerous piece of road to do so and returned home fairly late at night.  Rick was also away that night and I knew he expected a text from me to let him know I was home safe.  It was also a rule to boot ... and still is.  Well, I failed to do so and Rick was beside himself with worry that something had happened to me.  He later told me that all sorts of things went through his mind that night, including how he would carry on if something had happened to me.  It actually scared him some to realise how much he couldn't be without me.

When we had a spanking that went wrong and left me confused and questioning you were there again, offering your support and advice.

When we had our 'collaring' ceremony (vanilla collar) we shared it here and received such beautiful comments and congratulations it truly felt as though you were all really here with us as our guests and it made what was a special event for us much more so.

Funnily enough, not all of you were so keen when I noticed a lot of my fellow Dd wives were getting a bit Scrappy and getting themselves into trouble so offered virtual spankings to try and help them get back on track LoL.

I could go on, but I think I will spare you.  Instead I will just say once again

Thank you!! 

 from the bottom of our hearts for reading and for being there for us


Coming next on Roz In His Hands

I am working on my review of Coming to Terms and hope to publish it over the weekend.  Early next week at the latest.  It is now available on Amazon and I highly recommend it.

I am most honoured and humbled to have received nominations for the Sunshine award from three very special ladies - Ami, Quiet Sara and Viola.  This took me by complete surprise and I am deeply touched.  Thank you so much ladies for thinking of me.  I just wanted to let you know I will post shortly.

  1. Oh Roz, I don't know where I would have been this Christmas if it wasn't for you and Rick. You walked me through a very difficult path. You have MORE than offered back to this community!

    I treasure how our friendship has transformed from ttwd support to a full fledged friendship, that RARELY talks about Dd. That is the beauty of blog land. We are really people that just have one thing in common that opens the door to meeting fantastic people.

    I look forward to your 200th post!

    Treasure you!
