When Harry landed those first tentative smacks on my behind, I could never have dreamt how much my life was about to change. Our second spanking left some light bruising, prompting me to put 'how to spank your wife' into a search engine, hoping for some advice on how to spank without leaving marks. That's when I found Blogland. I had never thought I was a freak for wanting to be spanked but, nevertheless, it was so good to find that there were women who felt the same need as I did. Even better, a lot of them were older women, like me.
I lurked in the shadows, not having the nerve to comment and never, in my wildest dreams, imagined becoming friends with some of the women whose blogs I read so avidly. And if anyone had told me that I would not only write my own blog one day but also meet other bloggers in person, I would have sent for the men in white coats to take them away.
If you've read Jan's blog during the past couple of days, you will know that the two of us met up on Friday. There was no awkwardness between us, it was as if we'd been friends for ever, which I hope we will be in reality now. Jan is just as lovely in real life as she is on her blog and we had a lot of fun together. We talked so much our coffee went cold and we completely forgot about lunch.
Jan knew it was my birthday a few days later and very sweetly gave me presents, a lovely bracelet and some wooden salad servers. I'd never owned salad servers before, so they came in very handy when Harry made a big salad for lunch. Who am I kidding? I knew perfectly well what my dear friend meant them for, as did Harry.
I shall be seeing Jan again soon, when we go to London next month to have lunch with some other bloggers, an event organised by Ella. There will be six of us, which seems to be a magic number at the moment. We're all excited and can't wait.
I could never have foreseen that being spanked would lead to making friends in different parts of the world, with whom I can be myself and who are so supportive of one another.
Oh, and it's done amazing things for my marriage too.
