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.
