Happy Birthday!! ... Back In The Swing

Today, 23 September is Rick's birthday.  By happy coincidence he also shares his birthday with his idol, the Boss.

Happy Birthday Rick and Bruce!


Rick, words can not express how much you mean to me. You make me feel loved and cherished every single day and give me strength and courage.  You are my rock and I don't know what I would do without you in my life.

Thank  you for all you give me. For being my HoH, for loving me and most of all, for being you.


......................................

I apologise I have not been able to read and comment on posts this weekend.  Things have been crazy round here and I hope to catch up with everybody soon.

We are finally back in the swing of things (pun intended) and reintroduced DD.  Rick made the comment today that he is going to have to limber up his arm!  Oh yay!

It has been an interesting process getting to this point.  A lot of questioning, soul searching, discussion etc ... but I'll save that for another post :)

  2. Happy Birthday Rick! And the Boss of course! I'm so glad to hear that you are getting back to your own version of normal. Sometimes that step back allows us the time we need to discover and often rediscover ourselves...Kudos to you both!

      Thank you for the birthday wishes :)

      It does feel good. We are slowly getting back to 'normal', although I think it's going to be a little different.

    1. Hi Willie,

      Thank you for the birthday wishes .. both of them LoL

      You know, I did feel a bit conflicted at first because I have to admit, I was enjoying the 'freedom' from rules, role affirmation etc .. maybe a little too much LoL. However, I didn't have that safe and secure feeling and I know that this is really what I want. We are slowly getting back to our normal, although there may be a bit of tweaking here and there.

      Love and hugs,
      Roz

      It does feel good to be taking steps back to our normal, although as I said to Willie, I was a bit conflicted at first LoL. It is taking a little time to fully re-focus on our rules etc, but we are making our way back.

  13. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICK! :) Oh Roz, so glad to hear that you guys are back into the swing of things. Yep, Rick will have to get that arm back in shape... but not too much, since youa re such an angel, right? ;) And don't worry about the blogs, we understand you needing to take time away a times. :) Relax and enjoy the time you take away, sounds like it was all for fun, and you so deserve that. :)

    1. Hi Maryanne,

      Thank you for the birthday wishes :)

      I'm with you on the stingy. It HURTS when you haven't been spanked for a while doesn't it? There have been the odd play spankings though and funnily enough, they hurt more than usual! LoL
