The Look!

Hello everyone,

I am beginning to wonder what I have produced and inflicted on female society!


This is part of a conversation with son number two.


"Mum, do you want some of these chocolates?"

What, what do you mean, I can't eat chocolate , yes I do . Oh God you are so mean getting me into trouble with your dad. ( by this time I was eating :(   )

Just this once don't write it down, I won't tell...

I can't do that, don't tell me to fib, I have to write it down. and anyway what would you do if  (girlfriend's name) didn't write it down for you?


Well, I would give her the look ( he said, giving me an example, I have never seen him look so much like his father)



I was so surprised that I then blurted out


Well your father wouldn't stop at a look, so I am writing it down. Maybe you better ask him for some advice, because believe you me a look won't cut it.


Perhaps I will.   Yes mum, get the pen out you just ate four chocolates and I will tell!!!


Gosh I hope he does ask his dad, I would love to know what he says. Why should I get all the embarrassment in this house ?


In case you  are wondering I got  a, pinned my legs, tied my hands, spanking for my misdemeanours this week. He has finally got tired of me wriggling about :( and was determined to  make his point.
 Gosh that hurt,  fast and hard and squealing like a stuck pig I was completely trapped. I will be staying off the chocolates for the foreseeable future I can assure you.

Bet he doesn't tell son about that!!

 By the way whatever he does must work as the girlfriend has lost 12 and a half pounds.

Like father like son..............


On a more serious note, there are lots of struggles going on in Blogland at the moment,  a couple of bloggers with health worries, as well as a few other problems around. I just want to say that I am thinking of all of you and hope things get better soon

love to everyone

                      Jan,xx

  1. Hmm...first comes the look, then comes......Your son seems to have both nature and nurture working for him! Maybe you could convince hubby that dark chocolate...a small piece is actually a health benefit?

  2. OMG, your son is a chip off the block isn't he?
    As for chocolate - I suffered a serious malfunction last night and he did make note of it, but is unable to follow through at the moment. Awaiting the inevitable.

  3. Good grief, I don't know what to say. Tied down and spanked, plus shopped by a son who gave you the chocolates in the first place! Thank heavens Dan not only leads me astray, but joins me when I get there!

  4. I bet the chocolates were worth it though, right.

  5. LOL Jan...I agree with Sunny if they were dark chocolates...definitely worth it! :D BTW...Dark Chocolate...in moderation...is actually healthful for you. Here is a suggestion: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Loose-chocolate-kilogram-Kimberley-pomegranate/dp/B00DUS2RFK/ref=sr_1_1?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=undefined&sr=1-1&keywords=dark+chocolate+pomegranate LOL

    Sending prayers and healing energy to all in need.

    Hugs and Blessings...

  6. Gosh I don't think I could have stopped! I would have kept on eating! Was it worth it?
    Sounds like the spanking was memorable!

    Your son sounds like he was leading you astray but keeps a close eye on girlfriend!

    1. Hi MInelle, I am okay if I avoid it altogether , it's soo hard to stop at a little. They are practically joined at the hip, the real thing I think.

  7. I've said it before. Kids are out to get us. My daughter has landed me in hot water more than once.

    Legs pinned, hands tied spankings are no fun. Thankfully it's only happened a few times around here, but I know when he starts threatening to do it, it's time to get the wiggling under control.

    1. Hi Terps, just you wait till yours are grown up! Yes sweetie it was worth it. Isn't chocolate always worth it?

  10. Your son said he would tattle on you! For accepting a gift of chocolate he brought to you! That you determined would be rude not to graciously demonstrate your appreciation by eating!

    Sheesh. Wicked, wicked boy. Rotten, rotten son. He should be ashamed and apologize to his mama, and to his daddy, for setting you up in a dilemma that would get you in trouble either way, for rudeness to him for not eating sweets he brought you, or for eating them. I tell you, the wicked, rotten, orneriness of our grown children...pfft. Makes you wonder where they learn such things. ;-) ;-) (It actually was very sweet of him... until he started baiting you! Lol!)

    Again, as I've written here before, and as a couple ladies have backed me on, small amounts of dark chocolate are indeed healthy and medically recommended. Ummm... Small amounts, Jan, remember, only small amounts... (just the messenger!). ;-)

    1. Hi Irishey , It's the small amounts bit that is so depressing :(
      I told him what you said, he laughed!!

  11. Chocolate is just worth it sometimes, I try to stay away because I seriously lack the discipline to just have one or two :) You're doing so great with your diet! We have a cheat day once a week, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't look forward to it each week.
    Your son is too funny, it sounds like he'd make a pretty good HOH, it will be interesting to see if he brings that conversation up with your husband!

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Jennelle, if I had a cheat day I would be so bad I would undo the rest of the week. I think my husband is dreading him bringing it up :)

  12. Jan you are lucky to have so both fellows to watch after you. Must be a nice feeling. I'd love to hear the conversation they share too. I will tell you I have kinda, sorta talked to Nick, maybe a little. Is that definite enough?

  13. Hi Jan, your son was a little mean when he offered you the chocolate and then he would give you away. It reminds me of the cat playing with the mouse. Nevertheless, the way you describe the situation, I am sure he is very charming. But is it maybe possible that he has already adopted some of the methods that your husband uses?
    Maybe you should melt the chocolate and pour it into an ice cube tray. They are bigger pieces then and you can write down that you only had one or two. ;-D … Just saying, might look nicer when your husband reads what you had during the week. But don’t tell your son!

    hugs

    1. Hi Ni Na that is a good idea, might try that one and I 'll use a flipping big ice tray too!! Hope you are having a nice weekend

    2. Oh, Nina is ornery. Lol! Ya know... There are those popsicle molds that hold about a cup of liquid, and would be only one... Not that I am suggesting you eat a cup of chocolate all at once! Just take a tiny bite. That looks better on paper, too. Lol! ;-)

      Delete
    3. We are talking chocolate! Chocolate is not just sweets, it is a life style, isn't it?
      Actually, I am only the devil's advocate at the moment, because although my current body image would allow for chocolate, my tummy says N O O O.:( ... But chocolate is sooo tempting. :)

      Jan, you should definitely follow Irishey's advice, because writing 'a tiny bit' looks definitely better in written form than 'one piece'. Just don't mention our names ...

    4. You two are going to get me in so much trouble, I am supposed to be being good here. I need a way to disguise biscuits as well, my downfall in a packet :(( Any ideas?

    5. I know you know I was only playing about eating gallons and tons of chocolate! :-) Dark chocolate truly has been proven to be good for you, but too much of any good thing becomes bad.

      Disguise biscuits? From yourself? Lol! That might be the best solution - better than trying to hide what you have to report, and better than eating what isn't good for you. Actually, I think you can and should make some very healthy biscuits that taste wonderful, too. I think Cat posted a yummy-healthy cookie recipe awhile back. If she didn't, I'm sure she must have one somewhere. :-)

      Tell me what flavors and consistency you like, and I will dig around in my treasure trove of recipes. Low calories? Low/no fat or processed sugar? High fibre? All natural? Organic? I've made cocoa oatmeal cookies sweetened only with shredded beets.

      Oh! Just remembered Cat posted a recipe recently that only had two ingredients: mashed bananas and...oatmeal? Fairly certain that was it, and bake for a few minutes. You can enhance them with other goodies - like dark chocolate chips. ;-) Or dried fruit or nuts. Crisped rice would be good. Not sure what your dietary requirements are, but they sound so easy and healthy with no bad fats or sweeteners. I should try making these for/with the grandchildren.

      Your husband *laughed* at me! Me? Lol! ;-) Or was it your ornery son who laughed? Rotf!

      Hugs!

    6. Hio Irishey it was the son who laughed and I am definitely going to make some healthier versions of biscuits. Mind you when I eat them out of a packet I do know how many calories are in them. I'll look at Cat's posts for ideas. I have no dietary requirements I just like sweet stuff!

  14. Uh oh. If you get into trouble because of our ideas, then you should definitely mention my name, because I won’t be held too accountable during the next weeks, I think. So, no harm done. :-D

    I have tried once to bake biscuits the size of Swedish crispbread, the big round ones. So, if you have a recipe that makes biscuits look like crispbread, nobody would suspect anything. It would look like healthy food, too, which guarantees that most husbands won’t touch it voluntarily! Mine didn’t work out well, they actually became too crispbread like and the taste was awful.

    1. Omg you are so naughty. I am having such a bad week food wise, Making my own biscuits is a good idea, can't stand crispbread unless it's smothered in Jam!! Hope less

    2. Hi Jan, I really don't want you to end up in trouble and I hope that the bad part of this week is over soon.
      But I definitely am fully with you about enjoying sweet stuff! Looking at Cat's recipes is definitely a great idea, I have not tried her biscuit recipes, but her salad recipes are really yummy ... and healthy.
