I am having the normal struggle with getting back on track after Christmas with food :(
I managed okay over the festive period but now I just can't seem to get a grip. I want to eat ( in fact, am eating) chocolate, biscuits, cake, anything really that is not good for me. I know I am doing wrong as I am daintily munching away ( okay stuffing my chubby chops) but nothing seems to persuade me to stop.
Today I received a couple of "gifts" from my beloved to "encourage" me back on to the straight and narrow.
Oh yes my friends, you have quite easily guessed the first :(
A jolly hard spanking followed swiftly on the reading of last night's food diary. Yes folks I really do write down what I eat, even knowing I am being naughty and confessing my sins I can't seem to omit anything. If he asked me I wouldn't be able to lie, it has never been one of the life skills I have acquired and whilst most of the time he doesn't actually ask I just think what if he did!
He is a very trusting soul and believes what he reads. As he works into the night I am up first and as soon as I read the comments he so kindly left :( I knew what fate had in store for me. He didn't actually write "You are getting a spanking" in case the kids read it but the words "You know what is coming " in capital letters were pretty self explanatory .....
A humdinger of a spanking, legs pinned, implements galore, more wood than you can shake a stick at and the rosiest
A bit later on in the day and the postman arrives with a little parcel for me. :)
Yes it is a new journal to start the new year off!! What a sweet present. He had it printed and I am to start writing my food diary and any other misdeeds in here. Retribution to follow......
On another subject entirely I was talking to son number 2 the other day, ( this remember is the son who appears to be following in his father's footsteps ). He and his girlfriend are house hunting and one they are viewing has an extra room downstairs, a study maybe or an extra bedroom.
" If we were to buy this one" he says, " I am going to soundproof that room!!!!"
Good grief, I thought don't tell your dad he will want to come and borrow it.
" What for?" I asked quite tentatively.
"So I don't annoy the neighbours with my guitar of course"
Of course, what else could I have been thinking lol. He is actually a brilliant guitarist ( yes yes I know I am biased but one of my friends heard a disc he had made and asked who it was. She thought it was someone famous!!)
I hope everyone is okay and happy out there, I hope the weather gets better for those of you in snow covered lands. Also I hope that we soon get to hear news from TL and Bucko, and Esmay and the Duke, the waiting is endless lol.
Lots of love
