How Time Flies

A few days ago, I happened to see on a friend's blogroll that there hadn't been a post on Rosie's are red for two months. I knew it had been a while but where had that time gone? I can tell you that March went by in a blur of all work and no play, as Harry took on a big project that meant working all hours and hiring extra help. I was very busy too, taking it all in my stride, until the second bout of snow sent me into the doldrums and I didn't seem able to shake off the gloom.




I was so glad when Good Friday came around and Harry had to take a four day break. We pulled up our metaphorical drawbridge and spent a lazy day together, starting off with coffee and croissants in bed. When I came back from the bathroom, Harry was sitting against the headboard with a pillow over his lap. He has a thing about spanking me fresh from the shower, before my body lotion has sunk in. He says it makes it easier, the same effect for less effort. I reminded him as I went over his lap that it had been three weeks since I had last been spanked. After just a few spanks he stopped and squeezed my bottom, first one cheek then the other. Then...

H:  Have you lost weight?

R:  Yes, I've been shedding the extra pounds I've put on since last summer.


H:  Well, stop! I don't want this lovely bottom wasting away.


R:  But I've only got two pounds to go!


H:  No!!  No, no, no, no, no!


Smack!!  Smack, smack, smack, smack, smack!

I didn't protest, best not to argue with a man when you're naked over his lap. 

I think three weeks is the longest I've been without a spanking in the last five years and I missed it. Evidently, Harry did too as he spanked twice more over the break. Then he was back to work, tying up the loose ends on the big job before returning to a more regular schedule. In the middle of the week, he sent me this text - the hearts were from me:




Oh, that red dress! I wore it for a reconnection once, with seamed stockings and red patent shoes. We both needed that spanking and I thought the dress and stockings would make a pleasing frame for the target area, giving Harry some extra interest. On that occasion he turned my bottom almost as red as the dress but since then it has mostly been worn for fun. The spanking that followed the text was bone-meltingly delicious. I'd had four delightful spankings in five days. My cup runneth over! 

And yet...

When Harry overcame nature and nurture and started spanking me it made me happy, rejuvenating our love life and, by some alchemy, bringing us closer. It wasn't until the first 'real' spanking that I recognised that alchemy as his growing assertiveness. Sitting afterwards on his lap with my head nestled into his neck, calm and contented, I realised that what I'd needed all along was the primitive knowledge that my mate is stronger than I am. That he would not only save me from the lions but, also, sometimes from myself. Non-discipline spankings are wonderful but I'm sure I'm not the only one whose nether regions stir at the sight of her man with a stern look on his face and a paddle in his hand! Nothing sets my world to rights better than a reset, though they're pretty rare nowadays. 

Ronnie borrowed this meme from Ella recently. It seems apt to use it here too...





...and I got my hug. Equilibrium restored.

  1. Two months since your last post but this one was worth the wait! I love what you said about your mate being stronger than you. I feel that way too. I know Eric always has my best interest at heart so when he proves his strength, I am reassured that he can save me - even from myself.

  2. I love this post. You say it perfectly, the type of spankings and how they make you feel. I do agree. And I am so happy for you, it was worth the wait.

    1. Blondie, it's good to see you around again, you've been missed. I never realised there were so many different types of spankings before we started. There seems to be one for all occasions!

    1. Thanks, Laurel, I'm enjoying it while I can. Work is building up again but at least it's summer now and the doldrums are behind me.

  4. Hi Rosie,

    It's wonderful to hear from you. What a lovely post! A delightful way to chase away the winter doldrums :)

    You said it so well and I agree too, the types of spanking and knowing your mate is stronger. Glad life settled a little and you two have been able to reconnect :)

    Hugs

    1. Hi Roz,
      I enjoyed those spankings very much but the reset was much needed to get me back on track. Life is back to 'normal' for the moment, thank goodness.

  5. Rosie,
    And you have been reset and your world is now set to rights. How sweet is that! Three weeks without a spanking is hard, but here you are all red and rosy. Sweet! You have been missed and we need to hear more from you.

    1. Harry has done a good job with keeping me rosy since the reset, Meredith! I did warn you at the start that I didn't know what on Earth I'd find to blog about but I will try to do better!

    1. Hello Jan, it was a very nice way to end the drought but three weeks was too long! Work has eased for the moment but there's a lot coming up. I'm better prepared for it now there's no prospect of snow!

    1. Hi Linda,
      I'm sure you'll be pleased to know there's a fair bit of colour matching going on! Harry has found a pink champagne in a darker shade, so I'm staying out of trouble to avoid that one!

  9. Wonderful post. Makes me happy for you. You hit it on the head when you said "what I'd needed all along was the primitive knowledge that my mate is stronger than I am." That such an important thing.

    1. Harry has never been a pushover, he can be as immovable as a rock, but until that moment I'd only seen spanking as an end in itself, rather than an intrinsic part of dominance. He doesn't like that word but he'll accept assertive or authoritative!

  10. Time does seem to fly by...love this post! It is true, I had fantasized about spankings, but what I soon discovered...I needed so much more...and did not know it...never would have admitted it if I had known..I needed someone to lead me and care for me. hugs abby

    1. Abby, if you'd told me when Harry first started spanking me that it would lead to a ttwd relationship I'd have laughed in your face! Being spanked for real? I don't think so! But you'd have been right...

  11. Late to the party, but I know what you mean about time flying by.
    Glad things seem back to order for you and I would be happy to send you some of our sunshine and warmth.

    1. Leigh, I can hardly believe we're more than a third through the year already. Time seems to fly faster with each passing year.
      Thanks for the sunshine and warmth, we've had glorious weather the past few days. Please don't send 106 degrees though!

  12. Am just returning to blogland after lots of traveling, and I loved reading your post this morning, Rosie. The way you talked about that feeling that your mate is the stronger one was excellent. I will never understand WHY that is so true, but that feeling is one I crave.

    Hugs Across the Pond,

  13. Hi Rosie, :) I am so glad that you are feeling better, post four spanky days, a while back! When life gets in the way, and it throws off routine, it can be rough. We need our fellas (women/partners for sure)!

    I completely relate to what you have said. There is most definitely a place for spankings that remind us who "has us". It seems to do wonders for our fearless leaders too, I think. If it was always just for fun, it wouldn't be quite the same. Super meme. That says it all!

    Love your post! Many hugs,

    ❤️Katie xoxo

  14. Don't know how I missed this post, Rosie! Ha! ... red dress, seamed stockings and red heels? ... that would certainly make an impression in this household as well. Happy for you, that you have your spanky man back. Three weeks is a very long time! ... nj ... xx
