There are not many HoH's who blog and Bas therefore provides us with a 'unique' and refreshing perspective which is very much appreciated by us girls. Especially during times when we can't understand why our HoH reacted to a certain situation, or didn't react as the case may be, or don't know how best to communicate our needs, thoughts and feelings to our HoH. Bas is always there to offer sound advice.
I always look forward to reading comments from Bas. He is always kind, thoughtful and encouraging. He shares in our joy, our tears and makes us laugh with his extremely witty comments.
At times when we need it the most, he also occasionally dons his HoH hat and tells it how it is, or gives us a swift kick up the backside. His comments always make me smile, encourage me or make me sit up and take notice. He has a knack for knowing the right thing to say.
I want to share a few Words of Basdom that I have received.
Well, don't ask us why you are doing it. Find a mirror and ask again. Maybe you can tell that stranger in the mirror to behave because being banned from bloging is not going to go over good with your blogging friends.
Simple recipe for driving HoH crazy: Make him worry about your safety. Success guaranteed.
Hmm, HoH Bas
There are a lot of short women in blogland. Is that a sign that most HoH's are lazy and look for easy prey?
LoL, maybe there is something to this?
If I had sat there and you had interviewed me, you had gotten exactly the same answers. Only a few 'born' HoH's know all the answers. The rest of us is guessing and waiting for the wife's input. When we don't know what to do, and the wife gives no clear signals, we find ourselves for a stop sign.
Anger, frustration, sadness and distancing all keep happening. It's those times that make us appreciate the good times more. I'm sending hugs right through the floor of my study, down through the entire earthglobe and directly to you.
Roz, it indeed looks like an epidemic but mostly I see happy endings. Isn't it great that Rick, although mistreated by the Boss and, even worse, taken on a Christmas shopping tour still exactly sees what you need. Spank that Scrappy!
Yes, we are all giant meanies. Sorry but what can I say? Someone has to do the job. Sometimes it is just plain necessary. Of course, we only spank on Christmas day to defend the Christmas spirit against possible attacks from Scrappy and colleagues.
The first DD wife to be spanked in 2013! What an honour that would be. I understand that this can be an exciting race between you and Kiwi. Can we place bets on the winner?
A combo. HoH'y with a little humour
A beautiful ceremony right from the heart. You must really feel connected. With a ceremony like that, I can hardly imagine that those issues with submission that you mentioned cannot be solved in no time.
This one brought both tears to my eyes and gave me great encouragement.
I don't think it's possible to ever fully get there. You are both doing a very good job. It's all about the road you are travelling together. Enjoy the road. Roads go ever on.
Very wise words indeed.
Bas, thank you so much for your support, encouragement, your big heart and for giving me a swift kick at times when I need it (I know Rick appreciates those comments! LoL).
We are blessed to have you in this wonderful community and I feel truly honoured to call you a friend.
