So ... this is not the post I thought I would be writing tonight - sigh!
Deep breath - here goes.
After a spanking a while back for not going to bed when instructed (on several occasions, on almost consecutive days), not following bedtime instructions the very next day after the spanking and as a result being banned from blogging and having a set strict bedtime for a week in addition to another 'major' spanking ...
...You guessed it - the other night I once again failed to follow my husband's bedtime instructions. - Oh, stop glaring at me, shaking your head and tutting - I know already! ... I said stop!
As a result, I was banned from blogging (again!) last night (thankfully just for the night) and had a strictly enforced bedtime. My husband also told me will 'talk' about this some more as well when we have our usual review. Yeah, I know exactly what that means - my backside is going to pay the price for my stupidity also. I get it, I understand, especially given the recent history with this particular issue.
My husband said I may not have missed the deadline but that much, but it is an ongoing issue, one that has only fairly recently resulted in some fairly 'robust' consequences. He also said it doesn't matter how far past the deadline I was, being late at all is disobedience. He needs to know he can trust me to carry out his instructions, esepcially when he is not with me, which is on a fairly regular basis.
I am banging my head right now. How could I have been so stupid - especially after recent events. Also, it's not that hard to achieve surely - just make sure you are organised in enough time to meet the deadline - right?
I don't know why I've been struggling with this particular issue lately - but I know I am going to have to sort it out, and fast!!
