Christmas shopping was not so bad.

My wife and I did Christmas shopping yesterday and spent a long time in a large store which is the favorite of the middle income group, here in the UK. It is the one where the employees are partners. 

We shopped together for a while and then drifted apart as we each looked at the different parts of the store.

My spanking brain was in overdrive as I came across all sorts of discipline related items which were available in the very conventional store.


No explanation needed here. 
The hairbrush is larger than it looks and the plastic is a resin so it is very hard.




A hearty bathbrush

.Two sturdy items to be told to bend over.



When we met for coffee  my wife commented on how cheerful I was considering it was a shopping trip.

I replied that I had just been getting some ideas.






 Yes, this was on sale in Household utilities.







On the way out to the car park, I stopped in Kitchenware and  picked up the "baguette board" shown below and she smiled. 





When I asked if we needed one of these for the Christmas meal she said no, we had plenty of other things, that would do just as well. 
Now there's a heartwarming thought.

  2. The carpet beater can be a lot of fun! Less painful than the rattan cane or the martinet, but produces a sonorous impact ( which is why it shouldn't be used if you are concerned about being overheard by your neighbors ! )

    1. It's on my list of the instruments I will use over the twelve days of Christmas (a different one each day !) So far, the martinet and the paddle have been applied...

    2. ... followed by the vinegar-cured maple switch, by the leather strap, and (tomorrow) by my rattan cane! I may save the carpet beater for New Year's eve...

    3. Ouch, that rattan cane!... The worst thus far...

    4. Time for the carpet beater! Twelve before midnight - and another twelve shortly thereafter!
