Ring out the fast, ring in the true

New Year’s Eve; I can hardly believe it! It only seems like yesterday that I was travelling down to see my family (it was actually nine days ago) and last week that I was writing about Halloween (two months ago). I’d like to thank everyone who has visited my blog in 2012, and I send grateful hugs to everyone who has been kind enough to leave a comment*: it’s really encouraging to know that my scribblings are of interest. I will do my best to keep on improving and hopefully making the world a teeny bit brighter and spankier in 2013.

I have met many, many lovely people over the course of the year, and discovered a wealth of fascinating spanking blogs, and for that I am grateful. I look forward to making even more new friends in the year to come.

I wrote the perfect NLW New Year’s post this time last year so I won’t try to top that for sauciness. I don’t have a picture as wonderful as the one I used then, for a start. And I figure you can only weave a little vignette juxtaposing NYE celebrations with school roleplay so many times. I simply hope that you all have a fun time tonight and that the new year brings only good things. (That includes spankings, bondage, and any other kinky stuff you happen to enjoy, of course).

This post, you may be interested to know, is number two hundred on my blog. I know that every blogger says this but I’m really proud of myself for reaching such a mark: after ten posts I wondered if I would be able to think of enough things to reach twenty. Thanks to imreadonly2 and Sir Daniel for their guest posts! (Though I guess that means I’m only on 198 really). Even more amazing than reaching 200 posts, to me at least, is that my humble little blog will turn two years old on Jan 25. Time really does fly when you’re having fun :)

Happy New Year, everyone!

*Everyone except this guy, that is. “Finish the fucking story!” indeed.


  1. Thank you so much Penny for another year's worth of lovely posts. All good wishes for the next two hundred. Happy New Year. lots of love.

    Sophie xx

  2. Thanks for another year of great blogging


  3. Congratulations, Penny - two whole years of exciting posts (and so many of them)! Well done, you! (is that what they say over there, or is it Ozzie-land or someplace?)

  4. Best wishes for the future Penny! I love the picture! Snoopy is a hero of mine :). I look forward to reading and posting in the future. You've been a wonderful supporter of my own humble blog and that is appreciated, darling.

  5. Thank you for the thank-yous and the kind wishes! I really appreciate them. Lots of love to you too, Sophie!

    I'm glad you like my stuff, Timmy. If there is ever anything in particular you'd like to see, do let me know.

    I have heard that expression used here, John. And I'm feeling all proud and fluffy inside that you have used it here :)

    Snoopy is the coolest, isn't he Aunty? And your blog is easy to support cos it's super neat.

  6. The best thing about 2013 is that it's a whole 'nuther year of Penny Hasler.

    I hope Strict Penny will show up now and then, cuz I might need a little 'help' keeping my New Year's resolutions....

    All the best


  7. Aww. Thank you, RR! That is such a nice thing to say. I'm looking forward to the fun things you have in store for us RR fans!

    I will try to write something good with Strict Penny, just for you xx

  8. So....did you ever finish the story? :P

  9. !! Why you little! XD

    I've a good mind to swim the Atlantic and jump on you.

    Although, I was actually thinking about writing a little follow-up story at some point. So maybe I will. ;P

  10. You are welcome to jump on me at any time, though I'd suggest a plane instead of swimming. You'd be too exhausted to do any proper jumping by the time you arrived, and that would be no good.

    And it is a delightful story. Also happy new year, and such.

  11. I've certainly enjoyed reading your blog. Keep up the good work Penny! Looking forward to more exciting posts from you.

    Happy 2013!!


  12. 200 posts! That's a LOT! :)

    I read last year's post, and your Library story. Loved them. My imagination runneth over.

    Happy New Year, Penelope!

  13. Thanks TFD! I think you're a fantastic writer so it makes me glow whenever you say my stuff's alright.

    Hi Jack - so glad you're enjoying reading! Hope you enjoy my ramblings in 2013.

    Happy new year and such to you, Sir Daniel! :D

  14. Happy New Year Penelope :)

    May 2013 bring many spanks!

  15. Thank you, Dante! Happy New Year to you too.

    And I'm sure the year will bring countless spanks... all for my own good :D

  16. A Happy New Year to you, Penny! And I agree with Dante: May it be one with many spankings. :-)

  17. Thanks, Kaelah! Happy New Year to you too. And right back at ya with the spanking wish ;D

  18. oh is there a Strict Penny? Anything you write, you'd better share with everyone - is that clear, young lady? >;->

  19. There is a Strict Penny, though she doesn't appear as often as Little Penny or Schoolgirl Penny. (It's like being a Barbie doll! I wonder when Malibu Penny will come out?)

    And yes, sir, that is perfectly clear. But you can reiterate it once more in a strict tone if you like.

  20. You are very welcome for the guest posts, and I thank you for your contribution to my (ahem) yet uncompleted work. My posts are your posts!!
