Hello everyone, Just a tale of a day in the Rose household. A much less controversial post than my last one.
As most of you know we have generally got one of these
Sometimes however it is filled with these
Recently we have had one of those times. A house full of adult children and their other halves, even a baby to coo over. Lovely................ but I did just get a teensy bit on the stressed side. Ahem, okay a bit more than teensy.
Actually we have had a great few days and it was to end in a family party. I have to admit I was a bit worried about it, I wanted the house perfect, plenty of food, every one happy. To this end I will admit I was a
bit lot snappy towards my long suffering husband. I couldn't help it (okay I could have if I tried but quite clearly I didn't). I knew I was being awful too and I kept my eyes firmly away from John. He is very lenient and I honestly thought I would get away with it.
To be honest he tried to be patient and helpful but somehow I wanted him to know what I wanted done without having to
tell ask him!
Then, unfortunately for me the kids decided to go out to visit family nearby.
As soon as the he saw the car driving off John went straight to the door and locked it .
"Right, upstairs, we have plenty of time to sort this out", he stated,
"Oh no, I haven't got time for this at the moment, I need to get on..."
" Not a chance, I have had it with this this morning. You NEED a spanking , call it stress relief, call it attitude but get up stairs now"
I can honestly say he was the most determined I had seen him for .. well ever really. He is usually this sort of bird
Sort of kindly, and gentle. How come when I got upstairs I was greeted by this fellow
By the time I got there, the pillows were over the bed and implements were waiting at the ready.
Now John is, as he freely admits, hopeless at the lecture and as for most of us, this is the bit that gets me the most. To be honest it was like he had taken lessons!!
"We haven't got time, really " I tried again.
"That's okay, I am going to be hard and fast, just as like I like it" he chuckled.
" You have been a naughty girl this morning, not letting any one help and giving me this attitude. I am not having it, enough. When we are finished you are going to go back downstairs and relax about this party."
He carried on in this vein all the while walloping my poor rear end. If my poor bottom had not been suffering quite so much under his onslaught I would have enjoyed it. lol
How and when did he learn all those button pushing phrases? " Good girl", "bad girl", "Why are we here again?" ( Gosh I hate that one, if I don't reply fast enough he spanks harder. I am never fast enough either :( ) I actually can't remember all the conversation as I was too busy whimpering and whining.
"I want my good girl back, are you going to behave and listen to me? I know you are stressing but you need to calm down. "
Out came his favourite implements, that blasted leather paddle and his trusty wooden ruler :(
And then as he got near the end he even prompted me "Are you going to be good and calm now?"
I felt a harder smack then "Well?"
Gosh I would have agreed to just about anything at that point in the proceedings.
"Yes, yes of course, I am fine now"
And then."Well I am waiting, surely you know what you need to say to end this by now"
"I'm sorry, sorry".
I was too, I did realise that maybe I had been a pain in the a** , and that's why I now had a pain in the a**!
I felt him stroking my rosy cheeks, soothing, "Better now?" he questioned.
Of course I was . How could I fail to be, loved as I am by this man.
The implements were put away, our cuddling position assumed. One thing he always does is cuddle me. Funny thing was during this time I cried.
I very rarely cry during a spanking, no matter how hard it is. I do whimper, whinge and wail but tears, no, not really.
I think for me it was his tenderness, both during, even while he was practising his lecture techniques, and after, when he was assuring me I was his good girl and that everything would be fine. I felt more cared for than ever.
The party was great , I did have an amusing moment with my daughter in law though. We were in the kitchen and she was helping me put out the food. She was looking for a serving spoon and she suddenly said
" I love all your wooden spoons, I only have one as .....(my son) broke the other one a couple of days ago"
Speechless, I did not even want to ask how, because I know that in our house there would be only one way of breaking a wooden spoon, I just muttered something non committal and made a mental note to go and buy her a set as soon as possible.
All went well, I think everyone had a nice time. I certainly did. Times when we are altogether are fairly rare now because of distance. I love seeing my grown up sons together as men, just touches me I suppose.
Today we are like this in our empty nest
I loved how he took charge and jokingly asked him if this was his new years resolution. His reply,
"Generally my sweet you are good and you don't give me enough of an excuse to lecture you. It is hard to be a HoH if you only have a good girl. You want me to keep on doing it you are going to have to be a naughty girl more often."
So who knows what will happen now, not me , though I might have an inkling. ;)
Can I just say that Meredith has written a follow up to my last post. If you would like to read click on her blog on my blog list. It is New Twist,After all These Years. Enjoy.
Hope you are all happy
