Manho the Daddy’s blog for July

Manho the Daddy July or maybe August’s blog….

So me avid readers, another Covid fun packed month has past and hopefully this month there will be a little more context in this month’s blog than last month’s as it was commented it was rather, erm, shall we say short

So in the month of July what oh what has been happening in Manho’s world, working would be at the front of everything just a carrying on regardless in that area of my life.

Now it was Masters birthday this month and his Piggy had a wish list from Amazon sent to her for what he would like, so at the beginning of the month we ordered a few items he wanted from his list. The day after his 111th birthday we went to see him and my Little Minxs with his presents and Piggy did him a sweetie box as well, which he very much appreciated. Master cooked us burgers and sausages which were amazing, we socially kept our distance when we were there but it was really nice to see our other family and give Master his presents and just spend time with them both.

Now me and Piggy had a couple of holidays booked this month the first of which was with Master and Little Minxs, we were to be going to Pevours farm which is a naturist farm down in Essex, that was cancelled due to the pending doom and gloom of this bloody woohoo flu and the second week was away was with Piggy’s Mum and Dad down in the west country somewhere, in a Haven campsite and that was cancelled due to Dad still self-isolating, so the first week we cancelled the holidays at work and will reuse them later within the year, the second week we took off and booked a couple of days away at the beginning of the week to a AirB&B, it was a shared property with the owners and basically you had one part of the house and the kitchen was shared use, really nice house, had a hot tub so the child was happy, nice location, but would I do this AirB&B again, in one word Nope, hard to relax and be yourself when the owners of the property live in the same house. Don’t get me wrong they were really nice, however, I personally could not relax fully and fully enjoy myself. Piggy on the other hand enjoyed herself and would do it again. Now at the end of the week I had arranged with a friend of mine to go away for a couple of nights tenting with the motorbikes, so he arranged to look at a couple of campsites in the Lake District and bugger me, we couldn’t get a pitch due to being fully booked until the end of August so that buggered up that plan, ( Little Minxs explained if you have bathroom facilities of your own, you could go to campsites, but tents/caravans with no toilet or washing up facilities were not allowed as all shared toilet blocks/sinks were closed. ) So I then thought I would go out on a limb and ask Little Minxs if we could come down and spend the afternoon with both of them properly and not just a couple of hours like on Masters birthday, so Little Minxs spoke with Master who had to check if he had any plans and hadn’t, due to the weather that was supposed to be raining all weekend. So he said we could come and see them, so me and Piggy stopped off a the sweetie shop near us and bought both Master and Little Minxs some sweeties, Master likes his sherbet, so we picked him a few tubs of sherbet and Little Minxs wanted some aniseed twists and some cinder toffee, which I got. So with the sweeties bought, we made our way to theirs and got there just after 2pm. 

Now on the visit it was a little different, although distancing was in place still, it was nice to be able to sit on the couch with Little Minxs and be a little closer to her. We had a little, just a little bit of hand touching, now I know Little Minxs has made comment on Mr Johnson  and him publicly announcing that people who are in a polyamorous or BDSM relationship can go back to normal, although I am sure I have read that he said everything should be back to some sort of normality by Christmas, although he did not say which year, however as I have said to Little Minxs and Piggy, we would never ever risk either Master, Little Minxs or their sons health by coming seeing them if we did not feel so good or had any inclination that we may have this bloody Covid-19 symptoms and it is pretty much a common sense approach with regards this as this is not going away any time soon.

We stayed at Masters and Little Minxs house all afternoon and watched a film,  which was crap if I’m honest, although Master enjoyed it as it had Tommy Lee Jones in it and he has not done a bad film, bar this one, it was rubbish, we had dinner, a  rather nice Chinese, woohoo flu not included and all in all had a really good afternoon. 

Now I am writing my blog on a Sunday just before I go back into work tomorrow and just after me having a nice 3.3 mile walk. Walking? I hear you ask! In truth I need to lose some weight, I weighed myself a couple of weeks ago and was shocked to see my weight, 15st, I was horrified as this was the heaviest I have ever been and I am not happy with myself at all, I need to do something about it quickly, so both me and Piggy had been speaking over a few days and have seen challenges you can do from the interweb, some small challenges, so there is one which is the channel crossing, in which it is twenty one mile distance and this could be done by either walking, running, swimming or cycling and I logged into their app, through a third party app, so I decided to try it out today though map my walk and take the dog with me, so it took me one hour twenty minutes I think to do 3.3 miles which was a nice pleasant walk, although I needed a pee so I had to take a slight detour and wee in some bushes.

So I got back home after the walk and realised the trainers I had found in the wardrobe where not suitable for walking at all, so I am going to need to invest in some new trainers. Now the other reason I tried this, is I have been having a lot of issues with my left big toe, where is swells up really bad and becomes unbearably painful, this is down to gout and through my ignorance I hadn’t taken my medication to prevent an attack for years and just over a month ago, I had a bad attack, so called the doctors to restart my medication, I then had to go for a blood test to make sure everything was ok and knew that my uric levels would be high but with the medication this should reduce within a couple of weeks. Now a month later I am still having a lot of trouble with the toe to which I called the doctors again and explained the issues I was having and he suggested for me to have an X ray, as the medication I am taking should be in my system and be working, so there could be a underlying issue with that joint, when the results come through, I will let you know and I will keep you updated with the progression of the weight loss and walking I am going to undertake.

Now one last thing and this is to my beautiful Little Minxs, and it is simply Daddy is really sorry for upsetting you earlier this month with calling you ginger, I know you don’t like it and even when Daddy is teasing you, I had never intentionally meant to upset you and make you angry and I promise I will never ever call you or anyone that again I promise,  and I Love you loads……I am sorry x.x.x.x.x

Until next month reader……Bye bye.

Meeting the family today.

Second meet this afternoon with Daddy, Miss Adira and family.

With not seeing our family since early Feb due to Miss Adira hurting her shoulder and then the dreaded Covid. We finally met last week for a few hours, inside the house, for Master’s birthday, it made his birthday that much nicer and we were having dinner together, I’d say we cooked burgers and hotdogs but really that meant, Master did the cooking as we want them edible, and I got the plates out etc. The 4 of us should have had our naturists holiday that week, but it was cancelled. Then this week, Daddy and Miss Adira should have had their family holiday with C and grandparents, but that was cancelled.

So as Daddy has today off for once, they said let’s come over for a few hours, with C and BlueBlue.

Trying to not be as OCD over this virus, I’m more comfy having visitors, usually C goes up to our room, so he has peace and he can either watch our tv or watch YouTube on his phone. But he’s happy doing that. Last week he stayed downstairs, but this week we said for God’s sake, at some point we need to start our lives again so this is the start.C can have our room to watch his stuff.

We would love to be able to play, kiss, just cuddle, but that’s still a No No. But I can’t imagine our Boris Johnson announcing, to the country, for all you polygamists, swingers, BDSM lovers, lovers of any kind who do not live in your household, you may now play without restrictions, no safe distancing needed and you can play without your masks. I can’t really see him saying that. But I think we will just have to wait, see how the virus is going, if it begins to spread or finally die off for now. Be sensible in ourselves, so if one of us is feeling unusually unwell, then we will have to keep to safe distancing.

But it’s so hard seeing each other when we are all desperate to play. Both myself and Miss Adira are in need of a mega release, with spankings, fudging, and multi, multi orgasms. LOL. I know Daddy can’t wait to get his hands on a paddle with my butt out for him and I’m pretty sure DiDi will feel the same, though maybe not another 4 hour spanking session, as her shoulder is still giving her problems, mainly due to the fact everything shut down just after our play day together so she hasn’t really been properly checked out yet. 

But looking forward to a lovely afternoon/evening, sitting seperately, but at least we will be together still. Having a takeaway delivered, and I think Daddy is bringing me some sweeties as a treat.

I’m sure we are not alone in wondering when is it safe to meet with your Dom/Domme or with your lover, so I know we are not the only ones having these issues, but fingers crossed life continues to start looking better and we do not get this second wave. Which is my biggest worry.

Things must be looking better coz I’ve shaved and put some makeup on today. Another way in which I am trying to get life back to how it was. Next stage will be healthy eating, but Master and I are in the getting mentally prepared stage, as we like to call it. Where we spend a month contemplating dieting and then deciding if we can really be bothered or not. But we both know we should do really, it’s just hard work, and we like our goodies too much. 

Here’s to the world slowly getting things going, improving, safer, wearing our masks when we go out is no hardship really compared to the alternatives.

My new little tasks

The little tasks Miss Adira set.

Miss Adira could sense I was getting low, well lower than low. So decided to set me some tasks, get me thinking about other things and get out of the house. 

The first week, the tasks amused me a lot.

  1. Find 2 different types of post boxes, take a photo of each.
  2. Draw a cartoon sketch, no more than 5 boxes.
  3. Find me a funny street name.
  4. Take a picture of you at funny street name.
  5. When in supermarket-find something you think I would like that costs no more than £1

Hmmm, that got my thinking cap on, went on google, searched for rude street names and came across one, Cockle Dicks Lane, found it on my sat-nav, then went off for a drive. It was a beautiful day, so window down, music playing, I located this lane. No 3 and 4 done. On my drive home I searched for different post boxes. Now I obviously got the main UK red post box, but I knew we have ones fitted inside walls, ones half the size of the usual post box. But could I find them? No. But as I drove around, I saw lots of the posh, expensive houses have post boxes in the front gate, gate post or garden wall. Okay, that would work, it is a post box. So No 1 done.

When I went to Tesco to do a grocery shop, I was also searching for this thing DiDi may like. I didn’t want to pick sweets or snacky things, stuff I knew she’d like, I wanted something different. But costing under £1 was the challenge. I looked at the cucumber and thought, well I have an idea what she may do with this but the girth was rather slim. So I went to look for courgettes, butternut squash or aubergines. Now the butternut squash were huge, I mean gigantic, the courgettes were more realistic, so I picked one that looked pretty girthy, popped it on the scales, got a print out of what it cost, 73p. Perfect. No 5 done.

Finally, all I had to do was No 2, the sketch, I thought about a story to do for the cartoon, then did a rough copy. A kinda stick people sketch. But it looked good, DiDi did ask was this something I wanted, coz usually what I write about is something I want to happen for real, or has happened for real, I said I hadn’t actually thought about it, but yes, I do think it sounds fun.

So there was my first-week task done. It was fun, and started to think that maybe if it wasn’t to difficult for DiDi, maybe do this every week, even after the lockdown has finished, though I did ask if there would be consequences if I didn’t complete it. She said no, it’s just a fun game for you, no stressing, no worrying about it, it’s just fun.

That evening she set the next week’s tasks. And it was somewhat more than I thought she’d set.

1) find something historic in your town…

2) go to said location n do me a video telling me some facts and information about said place….at least 1 minutes n more than 3minutes

Okay, I had 2 ideas immediately for this. Studied them on Google, then picked The Round House, which is a famous house for our town. I wrote down what I wanted to say, picked a time where there was no rain, got me selfie stick, and went and did my report. Unfortunately, I managed to delete the video, so I had to do it again. And it was blowing a gale that day.

3)Find street names…where first letter in street names…starts with A,B and C…pictures required

Reasonable task. All I did was drive around side streets searching for the street names.

4) find a diamond picture that you think I’d like…and send link

Hmmmmmmm, okay I’m sure I will find one and did pretty quickly. I think she would love it. She said it was very pretty.

5) write me a very Erotic story…no more than 1 A4 page…

My mind began swirling around ideas, there was one thing my Mistress would love me to do, but she won’t force me to do it, and that is for me to go down on her. I have a bit of a thing about bodily fluids in those areas. Anyway, I chose this as my main subject of the story. If I’m allowed, I will type it out and post it.

6) plan me my ideal 3 course meal…( just a hint) we still may be going away in October 😉

This may take some thinking, wonder if Daddy can help with this. I later asked Daddy but he said he’d been told not to help. GGrrrr.

Thinking about what she would normally eat if we went out. I will be honest, Daddy did give me some ideas but I wrote it out as if it was a set Menu.

7) take me 3 sneaky pics of Sir without him knowing ( they cant be all of him watching tele)

Reasonable one, completed fairly quickly.

8) find me something online that costs no more than £3 that you think I’ll like..has to be kink related

This I thought would be easy, but it was quite hard finding something kink related. Everything in the kinky online stores had nothing under £5, even in the sale so I thought outside the box. What would I fancy ? Everything I thought of didn’t work out coz they were too expensive. So I came up with a punnet of strawberries, a pack of Nutella And Go, (a snack pot, half Nutella, half biscuit fingers) and finally squirty cream. For me, you could do some good kinky stuff with this lot.

9) find me 3 lampposts…that have a 7,3,1 and a 0..they have to be a minimum of let’s say 3 miles away from your house and have to be on different streets…here’s the challenge….1st lamppost has to be over 3 miles away…lamp post 2 ..has to be 2 mile away from 1st lamppost…and lamppost 3 has to be 1 mile away from 2and lamppost…and I’dike street names of were each lamppost is…4 can be anywhere you choose….

This one, well I read, re-read, re-read again. Okay, this one is a challenge. I needed to use the trip-meter in my car and had no idea where it was. I asked Master and E but all they said was, I’d ask Google. Very helpful. So on Thursday as it was the last one I had to do, I went off on this exploration. Firstly I need this trip-meter. So I asked Google, well I actually asked the car first, but she didn’t help. Google took me to YouTube, with many videos showing how to find it. Eventually, I got on the screen, Do you want to reset trip-meter, Yes or No. I clicked Yes. And it worked. Cool…… So I had to drive 3 miles away or more, then find a lamppost. Reset the trip-meter, for 1 mile, did the second lamppost, reset trip-meter for another 1 mile, and did the next lamppost. This actually sounds simple, but finding a lamppost with a particular number on it and drive was tricky, so I went down side roads that were quiet if there were any cars behind me, I stopped and let them carry on. Finally, I did a drive around to find lamppost 4, this could be anywhere so I didn’t need the trip setting.

Miss Adira was very happy with my task for the week, the erotic story got her tingling, which I smiled about, I’ve now learned, ( I think,) how to find the trip-meter, though if I don’t use it again for months I may have to look it up again. But I was really chuffed with myself for actually finding it myself. Not needing Master or E’s help.  I was curious to see what tasks would come next. Also wondered what the 10th one wudda been if I completed it too quickly, as she said it was a biggen.

Later last Sunday I got this week’s task. 

1) find shops that spell out my name…cannot duplicate shops….n I’ll have my full name please, Miss Adira.

2) I liked the historical info…so I’d like a historical area/street- same as before, go to said location n do me video telling me that historical info

3) give me a list/info to what you think my perfect evening with you would be- after I’ve had my favourite 3 course meal

4) find me a sexual toy that we could both enjoy that would be new to us both. That would cost less than £20 n send me the link

5) find me an erotic short story- needs to be short as reading bores me- so needs to hold my attention

On the way to see my folks yesterday, I looked for ideas for the first task. Find shop names and take a photo. Now my first thought about this task was that I would not be going to town, walking around the streets, minging with other people, to find shops. And I told Miss Adira, who said well leave it then. Then I began to think if there was a way I could do it without being close to other humans, that’s when I thought maybe I could do it, driving through towns, taking the photo through the car window. That would work. So driving slowly through the village I spotted 2 shops next to each other that I needed. There was no one on the road, on either direction, now I know you should not park on zig zaggy lines, by a pedestrian crossing, but there was no one near, and I knew I would be only a few seconds, so I grabbed my phone, going to take a photo of each shop, until I heard a horn beeping and there was a traffic enforcement officer in his van, telling me to move on. Blimey did he not know I was on a task. I shudda known better really, especially as both Daddy and Miss Adira work for traffic enforcement, in different towns. So I waited until I was on my home to stop in a legal place to then take some photos. BUT, when I told Daddy, he wasn’t best impressed, he said if he had stopped me he would’ve given me a ticket, which would be a £1000 fine plus 3 points on your license. “Do you really think you were right to stop there ?” he asked. “Well no, but I was only gonna be a few seconds,” I said.

As I obviously wasn’t gonna admit I was wrong, even though I know I was, I ended up getting a consequence.

This is the message Daddy sent to the family group chat;

“Right just been speaking to a certain someone, who thinks it’s ok to stop on a pedestrian crossing to take photos and gets annoyed when asked to move…..so this certain someone has to do a 1500 word essay on why white zigzags are down, why WE DO NOT stop on them, the legal consequences on stopping on them……for next Monday…….we all know who this certain someone is…

There are things I could say to this, but I will be sensible and be a good girl and just get on with it.

I’ve decided on the historic fact I want to talk about and I wrote my speech so that one is half done, for No 2. I have completed No 3, and written down what will follow after our 3-course meal. I’ve found a short book I think for No 5, I hope DiDi enjoys it, I’ve read it and it’s very good. The only issue is, it comes in 4 parts, and Miss Adira is not really a reader, but I found, as soon as I read the first part, I was hooked and had to buy the series. So I do think she will get hooked after the first book because she will want to see what happens next.

For No 1, I’ve found 4 shops so far, got another 5 to find, so I will have a drive around again, but be sensible and follow the highway code.

No 4, oh boy this is a hard one. Trying to think about what toys we’ve not got, even if we’ve got them but not tried them, and I really am struggling. I’m going to have to go through all the kinky shops and see what we’ve not tried. Just whilst typing this out, I’ve had 2 ideas, but 1 I know Daddy will not let us do at all coz I’ve already discussed it. So I will have a look and see if I can think of anything else. .if not, I will choose the idea I’ve just thought of.

Monthly blog from Manho the Daddy.

June’s blog from Manho the Daddy….

Well peeps another month has passed us by and to be honest not much has happened, old Boris Johnson has lifted the old lock down a little, so in turn the good old public took the piss and in the few days of nice weather, they went in mass to the seaside causing many disruptions. 

The bike was serviced, however the mechanic said the brake and clutch fluid needed to be replaced, as this was not part of my service, I will have to rebook it in for July at some point. 

So the month has been rather boring with not much to say as I’ve been working and it seems now some of the lock down has been lifted and even more is to be lifted in July, we finally have a planned visit to see Little Minxs and Master at the beginning of July. Unfortunately it will be a social distance visit but nonetheless a visit any way. 

So looking forward to that, and it’s also Masters 111th birthday, so maybe there will be a chance to celebrate that with maybe a social distance visit as well.

So at the start of July, more things are being lifted, such as pubs and restaurants, so we shall see, as and when the bloody lock down is completely over or reintroduced…

A short blog this month peeps as there has been nothing of real interest to talk about.

Oooo just reminded myself on something, so me being shall we say short for my weight should of been taking medication for my gout and cholesterol, but ignorantly haven’t for at least a year, so anyhow about two weeks ago I had a massive gout attack and God it was bloody painful, the worst one ever. So rang my GP and requested a repeat prescription for my meds, called back a day later to see if they were ready and was advised I needed to speak with the Doctor, so I had a phone call later that day and he pretty much said I was broke and had to go for a full blood test. However he did prescribe my medication and have been taking them religiously, I promised both Piggy and Little Minxs that I would take my meds, as I did not want another bout of the gout, as this time it was awful….

Any how that’s pretty much me done for the month so until next month bye bye …..

Got my butt spanked

Got my butt spanked last time as I accused Master of lying twice yesterday, he does not like to called a liar ever. As he never lies.

I couldn’t find 2 different things, thinking Master had moved them, to wind me up so I go looking for ages. They were actually where I left them.

Instead of asking him to help me look, or did he see where I put it, or just looking more, I told Master he musta done it. Unfortunately for me, I was wrong. And I deserved this spanking.

Master has now decided morning spankings will resume as he thinks I’m in need of it.

Last night I was bent over the bed whilst the Giant Devil walloped my ass.

This morning I was over his knee, whilst the Little Devil walloped my ass.

What’s happened in May.

My blog for May.

So May……..another month in lockdown……..well the first 2 weeks were……..now we are allowed a little more freedom. YIPPEE.  No longer in Lockdown, we are now in Stay Alert And Stay Safe. Meaning we are allowed to visit family, girlfriends/boyfriends, friends but if you do not live together, you still have to stay a safe 2 meters away from each other. Recommending people visit friends outside, in the garden or driveway, parks or beaches. Technically you cannot yet go visiting and go into someone else’s house. This is one rule I have kinda broken the law on, going into Mum and Dad’s house, though I wear a mask and gloves if I visit them, if the weather isn’t nice, it’s just not ideal for Mum to come outside. Unfortunately, she struggles to hear due to the mask muffling my voice, but I won’t go in without wearing them. I’ve not been in lockdown for over 8 weeks to slip up now.

But with this freedom, means the inconsiderate, ‘I can do what I like’ idiots doing more stupid things. Bank Holiday Monday, yesterday, a beautiful day, E went shopping for me and had a drive, Formby and Ainsdale were gridlocked, people driving to the beach. Parking anywhere, even though the police closed the main road to Ainsdale beach, people chose to park on pavements, the roundabout, on double yellow lines. My mother-in-law said someone knocked on a neighbors door to ask if they could park in their drive. They were told not to politely told to F**k Off. Then in town, cafes opened, putting tables and chairs outside, next to each other. The cafe owners should be fined for this. People just sitting side by side, as if there was no such thing of this Covid19 killer disease. I know people want life to get back to normal, if normal will ever be the same again, I want the freedom again, go out for a meal, go to the theatre, cinema, meet my theatre girls and most importantly, meet up properly with Daddy and Miss Adira. But I won’t until we are allowed and even then, I will still be very cautious and probably will still wear a mask for a long time after. My health is poor, Mums and my Mother-in-law’s health is even worse, so I will not put any of us at risk. Nevermind the rest of the family. I doubt cinemas, theatres or pubs, restaurants will open until late on in the year, but I won’t be going, there’s no way you can be a safe distance away from each other. Maybe I’m paranoid, maybe I’m taking it too over seriously, I don’t know. Yes, you can go shopping without masks and gloves, trying to stay away from other people but I’d rather have that extra security blanket.

Anyway, enough of this darn Covid19.

What else has happened this month?

Firstly it was Daddy’s birthday, and it was horrible knowing we couldn’t go and see him, can’t celebrate as we would normally. Even worse, the presents he had asked for, was arriving after his birthday. Even though I’d ordered them early. I was being a bit hypocritical to myself, I didn’t want Daddy to buy a new motorbike, and I will admit I wasn’t best impressed when he told me he had bought himself a new one. So when he asked for things for his bike, I suppose I shudda said no, I’m not buying anything for that thing I don’t like. But seeing how chuffed he was with it, almost like he had got his mojo back, how could I refuse to see him this happy. All I ask is for Daddy to tell me when he’s home safe and well. So I bought him 2 things for his bike, a Tank Saddle Bag and Panniers. Ages ago, he found a silver chain he liked for himself, but he had said don’t buy that, the 2 things for my bike is enough. But I surprised him and bought it, he was made up. But they arrived a week after his birthday. I picked a nice card for him, which at least arrived on time and he loved it. Wrapped his presents, along with Masters present, boxed it up, and posted it to Daddy. So a few days later he came home from work to find a big box just for him. So it was a bit like he was having a second birthday. Miss Adira videoed him opening his presents, which was really nice, at least we were able to enjoy that.

Then a week later, it was my birthday. I’m now into the second half of a century, OMG, 51, so old. But at least I don’t feel 51 in my head, in my body I’m about 91 LOL. 

The day before, Master gave me a box, telling me I had to open it now, even though it was a day early. I usually have a strict rule that no one opens presents before their birthday. But Daddy had also told me I had to open this there and then. Master videoed it to send to Daddy and Miss Adira. It was a difficult box to open and I soon realised why. There was a card, with flowers inside it. The card was made of a plastic sort of material, in the shape of a box, with a window, revealing real flowers, inside the box was a little oasis, to put the water. I have never seen anything look so pretty, I missed giving Daddy a big thank you hug. 

My Birthday was on the Thursday, the Monday before was when the government changed the Lockdown to Stay Safe And Stay Sensible. So in the morning, Dad phoned, asking if I was coming to see them, I wasn’t actually planning on going but I knew they would want to see me, so I got myself ready then drove to see Mum and Dad, I messaged my in-laws first, asking if they wanted me to come to them as they only live around the corner from Mum’s, they said no, they fancied a drive so would be around later that day. 

Two carers were visiting Mum, from the centre she normally goes to on a Tuesday and Thursday, for Dementia/Alzheimer sufferers, as it’s closed due to Lockdown, giving Dad a bit of a break as he has found the lockdown hard. It was nice actually because the carers plus Mum and Dad all sang Happy Birthday when I arrived. I stayed for an hour or two, then headed home. Both Master and E were working from home so I didn’t see much of them. Soon my in-laws came round so we had a long chat over the garden fence, Master came down for a break and join in on the chat. About 4 pm, E’s girlfriend, I, came round with flowers and choccie, she knows how to win my heart, the two of them had given me money, so I’ve bought a Pandora bracelet. Master and E came outside and we all chatted with her, God I miss this girl, she is so so lovely, and I do class her as my daughter. She always makes me laugh and smile, we can chat for hours, I feel very lucky E has found such a wonderful girl. Then it was time for the birthday dinner, steak, chips and salad, made by my talented chef, Master.

A bit before this though, Daddy had an idea, Miss Adira was finishing work a bit early, so he wondered if they could drive over to see me, he said he can’t not see me and now the law changed it meant you were allowed to travel a little, so it was okay. So after dinner, Daddy and Miss Adira came round, again just chatting over the garden fence. It was torturous not being able to say hi, thank you, miss you, Happy Birthday (for Daddy) with a hug and a kiss, just hold them, feel them touching me. I don’t know if this was worse than actually not seeing them. It was like, there’s your new toy, but you can’t have it or play with it. Now Daddy is paying for a new tattoo for my birthday, but he bought me a present as well. I knew what it was, just didn’t know which one. I wanted to begin collecting these Funko Pops, Miss Adira has loads of them, E has started collecting them too. I was a big big fan of Steve Irwin, I’m fascinated with alligators, crocodiles and snakes and what he did was just wild, (if I live again, I’d love a job like his.) Ages ago Master showed me these Pops of him, one holding a croc, one holding a turtle. I really wanted the croc, but Daddy had managed to get both. Saying the turtle one was the most difficult one to get. I loved them, think I’ve got the perfect place for them where I can add to them, so I really was made up.

Now Miss Adira had posted something to me early, telling Master to keep hold of it until my big day. I had no clue about this or what it was, she hadn’t asked me what I wanted so it was a complete mystery. Master videoed me opening another tricky box. Inside was a beautifully shaped heart box, I was still flummoxed as I fought with this darn box. (I am one of these people that open things carefully, looking at everything LOL) I got it open, seeing some dried red rose petals against black tissue paper. Pulling it all out carefully, I found this beautiful red rose. It was a Forever Rose, just beginning to bloom. Somehow the rose had been shaped into a heart, it had sparkles over it, encased inside a glass dome. The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, Miss Adira has some of these from their son, I always admire them, for once I was speechless. It was priceless and went straight onto the mantlepiece next to the other one she had bought me for Xmas. Right next to my card/flowers and their photo.

When they came to see me, I showed Miss Adira the rose, as she had bought it online, she said it took a long long time to choose this one, the shape, the colour, and sparkles were just perfect for me. God, I wanted to hug her tightly, hug both of them tightly. Seeing them, face to face, finished my day perfectly, we chatted for well over an hour before they said their goodbyes. It really has been a special day, even if it wasn’t what we would normally do. We can celebrate properly when we are allowed to visit and play.

Miss Adira’s blog for April.

Piggies Blog for the Lockdown

Well what’s been happening since my last blog. All I can say is the world has gone crazy..queuing to get your weekly shopping, children can’t go to school, can’t travel to see friends or family and should only leave the house for essentials.  Therefore life has pretty much come to a halt.

When everything first went tits up, I was originally still in work but I was only working 2 to 3 days a week so I wondered what I could do with all this new free time. We’ve been in our house now for around 6 years and since moving in, I wanted to do something with both the front garden and back garden, perfect opportunity I thought to start to do some work and beginning this little task. Well it was a good idea, only managed a week on these short shifts before I was called back into work for days and full shift. Work has now slowed down but not stopped.

What have I been doing, I thought I would start with something easy as I wanted to grow things from seed, so far I’ve tried to grow some herbs, tomatoes and flowers. Until today, I was having no luck. I went into my little greenhouse to check on my seedlings, and three have begun to sprout. I checked which pot it was, and it was the sun flowers that I had planted, so it would appear that I could grow some things. The trouble is, can I keep them growing and see them through to being an actual Sunflower.

The rest of the things that I have grown have not been so lucky, no herbs, no flowers. I think I drowned them, so I have planted some more herbs to see if I can have better luck, I will keep you posted on my progress and whether or not I have better luck the second time around.

I have made some planters for the front and back garden, in these planters I have planted various trees, shrubs and flowers. Currently these are doing well, my plan with these is to let them establish within the planters and then to ask Sir to build, well I say ask, I actually mean, remind Sir that he said that he would build me some bigger planters for the back garden. There are other things that I want, like a potting table, bigger greenhouse thing, BBQ area an a fire pit to name but a few. Now these maybe grand ideas seeing as myself and hubby are not very creative or good with our hands, well in a creative building kinda way anyway. So I’ll just have to see what everything looks like this time next year, or may be sooner if we don’t get any type of freedom soon…

Take care everyone and I’ll see you all next month

April’s blog from Daddy.

Manho belated blog for April…

Well again, I am a little late with April’s blog, can’t really blame the woohoo flu, as to be honest I have had the time to write it, however, due to the shite in what is happening in the world at this moment in time, I just couldn’t think of anything to write about. 

So Little Minx’s had reminded me at the beginning of May, regarding my blog and I had explained that I could not think of anything to write, as we have been on lockdown for all of April and I’ve pretty much done nothing, bar go into work, as I and Piggy are classed as key workers and unfortunately our jobs cannot be done from home. Now again Little Minx’s had passed comment this morning in front of Master, asking if I had done my blog. Knowing full well that I hadn’t, so Master piped up saying no Blogs from Manho or Piggy and subsequently set us both a punishment for lateness of blogs and we have to pick each other’s punishment, so that’s me screwed as Piggy can be quite evils.

So I am here, now writing a brief blog on a Friday morning on the 8th May at 0900 in the kitchen, listening to music and pondering on what to put, the only interesting thing I did in April was buy a new Motorcycle, much to the disgust of Little Minx’s, as she has not wanted me to obtain another motorcycle. However, the biker in me was pinning for a new motorcycle and I was trolling the old inter web and had seen a few in which they would deliver the bike to my door, now the issue is not being able to see the motorcycle and be able to test ride it as well, so pretty much sold as seen with potentially a lot of underlying issues, which is not what I wanted at all, so back onto the inter web and just had a look see at a bike shop which was two minutes from where I lived, just to see what he had in stock and noticed he had a very nice Honda VTR1000. Now I really like these bikes, a sporty seating position but not as aggressive. Little Minx’s was worried, as I have issues with my fingers and wrist when riding the last bike, so I was looking for a bike which would be comfortable to ride long distances with, so I rang the shop up as they were still doing MOT and servicing and they said if I went down they would bring it out and let me look. So I went down and as they had said, it was out of the front, so I had a look, started her up and sat on her and oooo I like this I thought. Now it was my mission to convince Piggy as she wanted me to get a cruiser style bike as she really enjoys riding on the back of that style of bike but I did really like this bike, so I rang Piggy up, who was at work and she said she wanted to see it first. So I said ok, picked Piggy up from work drove to the shop and when she saw the bike I could tell she was not impressed in any shape or form, ”It’s no different from the other bike,” she said, “Yes it is, it’s bigger for a start and comfortable to sit on,” I told her. She was not impressed at all and pretty much said do what you want. So this man in me put the deposit down on it and said I would collect the bike on Friday, in 2 days’ time. We got home and Piggy was in a slight bad mood, saying she would not get on the back of the bike as she did not like riding on that style of bikes. Later in the evening she had calmed down and was talking more and I know for her it wasn’t her cup of tea, however I’m riding the bike and felt very comfortable on it and riding it is brilliant, just snuggled into it and away we go and absolutely no issues with hands, or wrist at all…bonus.

Now I need to apologise to Master for this late blog and promise Mays blog will be sent without any reminders, promise…

Daddy’s book. Rayanna the very naughty mouse

Daddy’s book. Rayanna the very naughty mouse.

Chapter 11.

Diago entered the office, Rayanna was still stood in the corner, he cleared the office desk then got the key out of a drawer to open the cupboard. He pulled out the school strap, loopy, high impact cane and the lash, then picked the lexan too. Putting them on top of the cupboard, he pulled out the small stool and placed it in front of the office chair.

“Rayanna come here, take your shorts and panties off, fold them neatly on the chair over there then sit on this stool. Now !” He ordered. Rayanna slowly did as she was told, pulling her shorts down she folded them neatly, then slowly did the same with her panties. Before going to sit on the stool. She stretched her legs out, her body slumped as she folded her arms. “Young lady, put your legs together, knees up and hands on your knees, like you would do sitting on a chair.” Diago ordered. Rayanna threw him a filthy look but did as she was told. Defiantly, she sat and stared at him.

“I honestly don’t know what to say to you, there I am, sat with my friends when I get this phone call to tell me you’ve been shoplifting. I felt ashamed of you, embarrassed as all my mates listened to what PC Splintier told me. How could you do something like that, Pappa and Mamma have brought you up properly, you know right from wrong, did Suquie lead you on ? Did she ? Not that that’s any consolation because you know it’s wrong, it’s against the law to steal. And you know that. Nevermind stealing £200 from Pappa’s office. You’re not even allowed in here.” The lecture continued as Rayanna switched off, closed her ears to the droning as it went on and on and on, just making the appropriate noises to show she was listening, or not. The one thing she repeatedly said was she was not encouraged, told to, made to steal by Suquie. She had watched Suquie steal a lipstick so she had copied it. She wasn’t going to get Suquie into more trouble. She was her best friend and best friends do not rat on each other.

Diago could tell she was not listening, there was no remorse, no sign of feeling guilty, just defiance. “Stand up and bend over the desk. I will tell you that Pappa has told me to punish you as he would and will. And he has told me to ensure you won’t sit down for at least a week. Regardless of the bruises and state your backside is in now.” This piece of information shocked Rayanna as she stopped in her tracks. “No, you can’t do that and what you mean would and will?” She whined. “Oh I can and I am as Pappa has told me too. And the would / will…….well you don’t think Pappa is not going to punish you and I’m sure Cara will have something to say too. For now I am to punish you as if you were my daughter, now BEND OVER.” He ordered, loudly. He grabbed her ear and pushed her down over the front of the desk. “You move, I will tie you to the desk. Hold your tail.” Rayanna’s hands just reached the edge of the desk and her feet were on their tiptoes. Diago walked around to see the state of Rayanna’s bottom, it was already full of purple bruises so he went over to get some cream and rubbed some over her cheeks. Feeling her flinch at his touch.

Taking a towel out of the cupboard, he dried his hands and went over to pick up the strap and the lecturing began once more. During this time, her ass was getting a beating. Diago pounded her backside and legs, just as his father told him too. Rayanna was struggling to control herself, gripping the edge of the desk, her legs wobbled as she bit her lip to stop the tears from flowing. 

More cream was applied giving Rayanna a chance to breath and try to relax but not for long. She saw the loopy before the first strike and began to plead with Diago, please don’t use that. But her pleading fell on deaf ears, in the end she began to roll away from the strikes. 

“Right I told you what will happen if you move.” He bent down, grabbed one leg and locked her ankle to the foot of the desk with handcuffs. Rayanna had no idea where the cuffs came from, he hadn’t had them in his hand but there he was on the other leg, she could not move her legs at all, Only the tip of her big toe actually touched the floor, then he grabbed a wrist and that was quickly locked to an iron ring at the front of the desk. Repeating the same to her other arm. There was no possibility of her moving anywhere.

“Now 1 thing I cannot believe with this whole situation about you shoplifting is, this was your first try at it, or so you say, now I imagine if you were trying it for the first time, you’d be nervous, so for example, if it was me, I’d be shitting myself so may steal 1 or 2 things but you, you steal 26 items. Were you feeling so cocky you couldn’t be caught or have you stolen in the past ?” Diago asked as he continued to lecture her. “I’m waiting for an answer Rayanna!” He coldly said before whipping her with the loopy. Rayanna screeched out in pain, trying to answer between crying and coughing. He went to the mini fridge and grabbed a bottle of water, lifting it to her mouth carefully, she gulped it down. “Slowly, Ray, don’t choke.” He wiped her hair away from her face and sat down so they could look at each other face to face. “So…….” He waited patiently. “W….w…..when me an Suq was about 9 we took some sweets from the sweet shop but it was no more than 3 times and we only took 1 sweet. I never even thought about it again coz I felt so guilty bout it, Today Suq told me she has been stealing stuff for a few years, I was gobsmacked D, I mean I’m with her all the time but she’s never told me, I’ve never seen her do it before today. She’s had new stuff but she gets pocket money like I do plus earns extra doing jobs so I just presumed she’d paid for it. I didn’t realise I’d took so much, we just went from shop to shop, I put the odd thing in, I honestly had no idea it was so much an I’ve no idea how she stole some clothes. Most stuff has alarms on ‘em.” Diago studied her sister’s face whilst she spoke to him and he thought, felt she was telling him the truth.

“Okay well 26 items is a hell of a lot. I may not be so mad with you if it had been 2 or 3 and I’m sure Pappa will say the same thing. You know I’ve had to tell him, you know you will be punished by him but more importantly you will have to gain his trust again. There’s no question that me, Cara, who by the way doesn’t know what has happened yet, but me, Cara, Mamma and Pappa, we are going to be watching you like a hawk. You’ve lied to me, Cara and you’ve disappointed us and Pops and Mamma. You will not be left alone again for a long, long time. So 26 items, this will equal 26 swats with loopy, the high impact cane then the lexan. I want you to count, 1 It is wrong to steal, I will never steal again. Do you understand ?” Diago’s voice seemed to boom at her yet she knew he wasn’t shouting. All Rayanna heard was 26 with those evil implements. “Yes Sir,” she replied, her voice tiny.

When Diago began, Rayanna tried her hardest not to cry out, the pain was the worst she had ever felt, her bottom was already covered in purple bruises before this new punishment began, she had to dig deep inside herself to deal with it. But by the time he was half way with the loopy, her tears fell freely, betraying her determination not to cry. She had made a few mistakes with counting the strokes but luckily Diago let her off, usually her father would give you an extra stroke for getting it wrong. She certainly didn’t believe it was because he was slightly softer than Pappa. 

And she was not wrong, when he changed to the cane, he said, “You had better count properly this time because you will get an extra stroke for each wrong number.” 

The first stroke took her breath away, straight across her sit spot, catching her happy spot too. Quickly she counted, saying the correct thing, as the cane repeated its severe assault off the same area. Rayanna began to scream, sob and shake but she did well getting through the 26 with only 1 wrong count. There were now deep welts over her cheeks, welts over her legs, many of them bleeding now. Diago wasn’t surprised she began to bleed so quickly after the amount of punishments she had had over the last 2 months. He hoped Cara would not want to physically punish her too tomorrow, but that was up to her.

Diago gave Rayanna some water, wiped her face giving her time to calm down again. “It’s nearly over Ray, you’re being a good girl and taking your punishment well. Continue this please.” He told her gently. Unfortunately, this only made her mad, her defiance began to stew inside her, feeling that Diago was treating her like a little girl. This defiance came out in her voice as she counted the strokes with that evil lexan paddle. And Diago heard it immediately. The lexan came down harder, still her voice sounded more defiant, she hadn’t screamed, cried out, and not a single tear was shed. Christ she is one tough kid, he thought to himself. He swatted her across one leg, the edge of the paddle hit her happy spot, this made Rayanna whimper, so he hit her on the alternate side, repeated this for 10 strokes, still her defiance hadn’t dissipated. Her hands fisted, he could see her gritting her teeth, a look of determination shocked him, after all this spanking she was still fighting it. There was not 1 wrong count during this set of 26 as she lay across Pappa’s desk, “Can you untie me now?” She said, the brazenness in her voice, her expression shocked him but made him mad.

He hoped he wouldn’t need to get the lash but now, seeing her insolence, he was going to. He grabbed some scissors out of a drawer in the desk, went round and cut her shirt away. Rayanna screeched at her brother, cursing and yelling, “If you’re going to pretend to be a tough girl, acting like an adult, you can have a whipping like an adult would, like Mamma would, maybe then you will realise you are still a little girl Rayanna. Take that insolent look of your face right now and if you curse at me once more you will get a soaping too.” 

Diago walked to the cupboard and picked out the lash, he’d used it a couple of times with an ex-girlfriend but he wasn’t experienced in it. Either way, he would use it and show her what happens when she continues to be so defiant. He started off by lecturing her once more, his stern  voice seemed to be getting through to her, that and the fear of his lash thing Diago talked about. 

Holding the end of the lash, Diago whipped it across her back, Rayanna screamed, it’s tongue tore at her sides, catching her breasts. The sharpness shocked Rayanna, making her gasp for air, her fingers stretched out wide as she clenched her body. Diago continued to whip her, 10 on the left side, 10 on the right side. The edge of the lash caused welts, some cut her skin, breaking it and making her bleed. But he was relentless until he saw the defiance dissolve, her body gave way to the onslaught, slumping over the desk, Ray’s tears began to fall and she sobbed, harsh, deep, guttural sounds came from her throat. Diago stopped immediately, and unlocked all the cuffs but Rayanna stayed over the desk, all anger had subsided and she just lay, collapsed, unable to move.

Carefully Diago lifted her into his arms and carried her to her bedroom. She clung to him, crying into his shirt. He could feel it was already wet from her tears, slobber and probably snot. Normally he would be grossed out by this but now, he wasn’t bothered. He gently lay her on the bed, “I’m just going to get a bowl of water to clean you up. Okay ?” he quietly said, Rayanna nodded. Quickly he was back, warm water and a sponge were put on the floor, along with a towel, a tub of cream and a box of plasters. Very carefully he washed her bottom, legs and back, gently patting her dry, there were some cuts that required plasters, then he rubbed some cream in as gently as he could.

“You will need a few days rest Ray, so I do not want you to leave the room unless you need the bathroom. Cara and I will look after you until Mamma’s home, we will bring you your meals. But you will have work to do whilst you are resting.  I want 1000 lines written, I will bring you your notebook and pencil and I will write the sentence down I want you to write. But I want these written whilst you are in bed. No tv at all but you may listen to the radio or put your own music on. I will make you something to eat now, then I want you to go to sleep.” He kissed Rayanna’s head then left the room. Rayanna burst into tears again, this had truly been the worst punishment she had ever received. She was dreading seeing Cara tomorrow and the thought of seeing her Mamma and Pappa made her feel sick. Her thoughts went on to Suquie, how was she ? has she been punished as hard as she had ? She just wanted to see her or speak to her. 

After a few minutes Diago returned with a tray of food. He’d made her cheese and ham sandwiches, a tangerine already peeled for her, a banana, a cereal bar and a big glass of milk. He had also put on the tray a cheese and nut snack box that Rayanna liked. It had cubes of cheese on one side then the other side had barbecued flavour peanuts. Taking a stool from the kitchen, he put it next to her bed and placed the tray on top of it. Rayanna wouldn’t need to move much to reach her meal. “I expect all this to be eaten, Rayanna before you go to sleep. You may read your book, here’s your kindle. He left the room for a moment before returning with a new notebook and pencil. He sat at her dressing table and wrote the sentence he wanted her to write. 

‘I will not steal, I know it is wrong and more importantly I know it is illegal. I have disappointed Mamma and Pappa, Cara and Diago  and I am very sorry.’

“1000 lines writing this sentence whilst you are on bedrest. Neatest handwriting please. Eat your dinner then go to sleep. I will be back to check on you later.” Diago told her before leaving the room, keeping the door slightly ajar.                                                                                                                                                                                           

Daddy’s book. Rayanna the very naughty mouse

Daddy’s book. Rayanna the very naughty mouse.

Chapter 10.

Friday went quite smoothly for Cara, Rayanna did as she was told, did her homework plus any other chores Cara wanted her to do. Rayanna was very quiet, but Cara put it down to her being very sore and didn’t want to get into trouble again. The truth was Rayanna was hatching a plan, as she overheard Cara and Diago talking, saying that Cara would be out all Saturday and overnight and Diago was watching the football at his friends, Rick’s house. Which meant she could get out and meet Susquie. She just needed to get hold of a phone. She knew Cara had an old phone in her bedroom, in one of the drawers, she needed the chance to search her bedroom. At 3pm she got the chance, as Diago was at work, Cara had to pick the older kids up from school and college. Giving Rayanna the chance to search.

“Rayanna, I’m going to pick the others up, do you want to stay or come ? If you stay, you do not leave this house. Understood.” Cara told her sternly. “Yes M’am,“ Rayanna told her sarcastically, giving her a salute, “I know, I’m staying, I will be in my room, okay. I will not take a step outside.” Starting to walk to her room. “I’ll have less of the sarcasm thank you very much.” Cara called to her. Rayanna muttered, “yeah, fuck you.” And went to her room, but didn’t close the door, she waited to hear Cara leave the house, hearing the car reverse down the drive then drive away.

Cara was gone.

Rayanna ran to Cara’s bedroom, leaving the door ajar, she searched the chest of drawers, nothing, her second chest of drawers, nothing. “Shit, where is it ?” She whispered. Looking around the room, she went to the bedside cabinet. Nothing in the top drawer, her final chance was the bottom drawer. If it wasn’t there she was screwed. Looking inside the last drawer, there it was, right at the back. Quickly Rayanna grabbed it, managed to switch it on. Running to her own room, she dialed Suquie’s mobile number, praying she answered. “Hello, who is this ?” The familiar voice said. “Suqsss, is that you, oh my god, I wasn’t sure if you’d have your phone. Are you okay? How are you? God I miss you.” Rayanna said, excited but scared in case anyone heard her. They chatted quietly, “Listen Suqs, I can’t stay on long, I’ve got Cara’s old phone. Mamma and Pappa are away, tomorrow Cara’s out all day and overnight and Diago’s going to watch football at his mates. I’m gonna be able to sneak out, do you wanna go out somewhere ?” Rayanna said, looking through the window to see if the others were home. “Hell yeah Ray, do you wanna go to town ?” Suquie asked. “It’s too close, I don’t know where Cara’s going, what bout Crinkster, we’ve been by train with school trips ? I need to find out when Diago’s going out but I heard him say 11am coz they were going to buy food and drink first.” Rayanna explained. “Okay, if I get there earlier I can get the tickets then we can go as soon as you arrive. I’ll find the times, can you keep hold of the phone do ya think ? I can message when I know the time for you to get there.” Suquie asked. “Okay, look I’ve gotta go, but can’t wait to see you tomorrow.” Rayanna hung up, made sure the phone was on silent then stuffed it inside her sock drawer. Rushing to Cara’s room to make sure it looked normal, then closed the door. The one thing she did need was cash, so she looked at her savings, £35.50. She needed more money. She knew Pappa has money in his office, there’s a jar behind some books. She’d seen him take money out of it before, checking the time she thought she had enough time to go and look. Creeping into the office, she went to the shelves of books. Seeing a thick dictionary and thesaurus, she moved them to the floor, finding the jar. Taking it down, she removed the lid, there were loads of notes inside, taking a £20 note, she thought about it and took another 5, then 4 more. It would not be missed but she didn’t care anyway. Putting everything back in place, she hid the money with the phone. Excited they now had a plan and a fucking awesome one too, she thought. 

That night Rayanna was so excited but trying to hide it from Cara was really hard, “Why are you smirking so much Ray ? Asked Cara. “No reason.” She replied. “What are you up to?” Cara asked again. “NOTHING, how can I be up to anything, I can’t go anywhere or do anything.” Rayanna shouted at her sister before leaving the lounge and running to her bedroom. Cara stood there for a second, shocked at the outburst, she headed to Rayanna’s bedroom. “Ray, I’m coming in.” She said gently knocking on the door. “Go away, Cara.” Rayanna shouted, but Cara walked in, sitting on a chair. “What’s up ? Is this because you’ve been grounded for so long?” She asked. Rayanna sniffed, “I just feel trapped, I can’t do anything, go anywhere without being watched.” She told her. “Look, you know full well that you’ve deserved this punishment. But it’s not forever so you just need to deal with it. But throwing a tantrum, shouting at me will only make it worse for you. Do you think Pappa would let you speak that way, we both know he would spank your butt, regardless of your bruises. Now I think you should go to bed early, get ready for bed now and you can read in bed for a while. I will leave your spanking tonight but do this again, and I will give you a right hiding.” Cara bent down to kiss her baby sister, before walking out. As soon as the door closed, Rayanna looked up, smirking that she’d fooled her stupid sister. Going through her clothes she picked out her outfit and shoved it under the bed so she could quickly get changed when Diago left. She put all the money she’d taken into her handbag, everything was sorted so she got ready for bed, read for a bit before going to sleep.

The following morning, Rayanna had butterflies in her tummy, excited and terribly nervous, Cara didn’t even give her, her morning spanking, thinking Rayanna was still feeling a bit low. She left the house at 10am, giving her a sharp warning to behave. You’ve not got a clue, you stupid bitch, thought Rayanna as she watched Cara leave. An hour later Diago left, after a warning not to do anything silly. Like earlier she watched Diago leave, waiting another 5 minutes before she quickly got changed, grabbed her bag and mobile phone, put music on loudly in her room, so the other kids thought she was in there, crept to the back door, one more look around, then she left. Running to the train station, she messaged Suquie to tell her she was on her way. 

Ten minutes later, they were on the train. Chatting about all sorts of things, Suquie was back at school and 3 of the bullies who had been awful to Suquie had been expelled, she explained, the other 2 were suspended. Eventually they arrived at Crinkster. Suquie knew how to get to the huge shopping centre, Rayanna had never been to one so big without an adult. Deciding to stop at a cafe first, they bought drinks and a cake each, the conversations never stopped, there was so much to catch up on. Rayanna told her about the punishment she got from Finch, Suquie felt so guilty but Rayanna said she would do it all over again, if needed. 

The girls chatted and giggled as they finished their coffee and cake, then they began to wander around the shops. “I’ve not got much money, “ Suquie said, “but I know how to just get what I want.” Rayanna stopped, “You…….you mean nick them?” She was startled. “Yeah, I’ve done it before, makeup, jewelry, even got some tops too!” Suquie told her.  “How…….how have you….how do you do it ? I took money outta Pappa’s office.” Rayanna replied. “Where’s the fun in that ? You don’t need that today, well not for small stuff. I’ll show you how. Come on, let’s go in here.” Suquie told her.

They walked into a makeup shop, Rayanna noticed there were lots of staff everywhere, offering baskets to put their shopping in. Soon she got carried away with all the makeup, when suddenly she saw Suquie pocket a lipstick. She had been holding 3 lipsticks, but there was only 1 in the basket. “Suq, look I can buy you these, I’ve got money.” Rayanna whispered. “Yeah, but this way is loads of fun.”Suquie told her. “Look you hold a few in your hand, lippy, eye liner, the staff can’t see how many you’ve got, as you’re deciding what to buy, you can pocket 1 or 2.” Rayanna didn’t try it out, she paid for her makeup and 1 item for Suquie.

The next shop they went to was a jewelry store. Racks and racks of earrings, bracelets etc. “Try it out Ray, put a few earrings in your hand, like this,” Suquie showed her, “Then as you put them back, keep one in your palm. That one hand goes to your pocket, you slide it in there, and no one notices. “ Suquie whispered, she had actually slipped 2 pairs of earrings in her pocket whilst showing her best friend. Rayanna was really scared of stealing anything, but was also a tiny bit excited. Could she do this ? When they were about 8-10 years old, they stole sweets together, but not many. She did as Suquie instructed, then as she put 2 back, she kept hold of one packet, holding the earrings with her thumb to her palm. A few seconds later, she stuck her hand in her pocket and pushed the earrings inside.

They didn’t steal loads of stuff, Rayanna had money, so she bought some tops and shorts for herself and for Suquie. They were having a great day. Having a pizza each for lunch, thanks to the money Rayanna stole from her Pappa, a pudding each and a couple of drinks. They were nicely full by the time they were ready to shop again. 

Unbeknown to them, they were getting followed by a couple of security officers. They had been alerted by the CCTV operators, as they had been watching the movements of these 2 females for a while, having seen on video them both stealing some items. The security guards were just waiting for the CCTV supervisor to approve it then they would arrest the girls and take them to the office.

There was a Cadbury’s World shop in this massive shopping centre, Rayanna had to buy some chocolate. There was a huge 1 kilogram bar for £30.00. So she bought 2, 1 each for them, leaving Suquie to wander around the shop. There were staff members holding trays of chocolates, cut up into small pieces for the public to try, especially if they had a new brand out. Suquie’s pockets were quite full by the time Rayanna found her, so she was going to put her stolen goods into one of her bags, once they were out of the shop. Excited about the selection of chocolate they had “purchased”, they walked out giggling.

“Excuse me ladies, we need to have a word with you both, please.” This massive security guard said to them. “We have reason to believe you’ve been shoplifting. Come and stand over here, thank you.”  The man told them, taking Rayanna’s bags, the other guard took Suquie’s, then they moved the girls to the side of the footpath. Rayanna felt sick, her paws began to shake, so she grabbed Suquie’s paw. They watched as both guards put those disposable gloves on, they took a bag out of their pockets. The officers asked the girls to put their paws out to the sides, as they searched all their pockets, emptying all the contents in the bag. “Do you have receipts for all this makeup and jewelry?” One asked, “Erm, no, we didn’t bother keeping ‘em,” Suquie told them with a shaky voice. “Strange because in your shopping bag, you have receipts for almost all things. Right we will sort this out at the station. Come with us now.” Suquie tried to pull away from the guard, “Right, that’s quite enough, you don’t want me to get my handcuffs out, do you ?” Her guard told her, Suquie shook her head. “Let’s go then,”  

Rayanna and Suquie walked slowly to the security offices, where the CCTV monitors were. Instructing both girls to go into a room on the left. They were told to sit down next to each other, as one of the guards sat in front. “Can I get you both a drink, water, pop, coffee ?” “Coke please,” Rayanna said very quietly, “Can I have the same please.” Suquie asked.” Sure I will get them now.” He said before he left the room. 

The huge security guard, sat in front of them. “Right, let’s start with your names,” He said as he took a notebook and pen out from his jacket. The girls never spoke. “Right we can do this easily, telling us what we need to know, or I will just go through your bag and I’d rather not have to do that. But the police will, when they arrive.” He told them sternly. “The police !” Rayanna squeaked. “Yes, they will be here soon. So come on girls. Tell me your names ?” He asked again just as the other guard came in carrying 2 cans of coke, and 2 coffees for them, he handed one coffee to the other guard then sat down. “Rayanna………..Rayanna Weedle, I’m 14.” Rayanna said quietly. “Okay, thank you Rayanna. And you ? He asked Suquie as she looked at her best friend. “Suquie Switchly, I’m 14 too.”

“Thank you Suquie, now the next thing I need to know is the phone number for your parents.” The guard said, both the girls stared at the guards, then at each other, open mouthed, “Why do ya need that ? Please don’t phone our parents, please.” Suquie begged. “My parents are away anyway,” Rayanna told them. “Well the police will be phoning your parents. They cannot interview you without them present. Rayanna who is looking after you.” He asked gently. He was well aware that this was their first offence in this shopping centre, but he really thought it was their first offence ever. The police may have a history with them, but he could see they were terrified, no cockiness like you get from reoffenders. “My sister and brother are but my sister is away for the night.” Rayanna told them. “Right, I need your brother’s name and number.” He asked. “C…c….can I look it up on my phone please?” She asked. He gave her, her bag and she took out her phone. “He…he’s called Diago.” She found his number and gave it to the officer. Suquie tried to act tough and just gave him an evil look. “Suquie, give him your number or I will.” Rayanna told her, “You’ll only make it worse.” Eventually she huffed and told him her phone number.

The entire event began to feel more real to Rayanna as tears began to well up, Suquie just looked stone faced though, her face very pale. Just as the security were going to continue questioning the girls, there was a knock on the door and 2 police officers walked in, both of them were as tall as they were wide. The room suddenly felt very very small now with these 4 massive officers inside it.

“I am Police Constable Splintier, this is Police Constable Squirley, so we have a couple of shoplifters do we ?” One officer asked.

“We have, this is Rayanna Weedle and Suquie Switchly, both 14. I’ve got Suquie’s parents phone number, Rayanna’s parents are away, unreachable, but her siblings are looking after her, the sister is away overnight, but the brother, Diago is babysitting for the tonight, I’ve got his number.” The security officer said. “Great thanks Bill. Okay we will take it from here, girls, let’s go. We are taking you to the police station and get this sorted out.” PC Splintier said. He opened the door, taking the shopping bags off the security officer and walked in front. PC Squirley indicated to the girls to follow the officer. They walked out of a side door and they were outside, facing a police car. PC Splintier opened the door for the girls to climb in. 

The girls never spoke in the police car, Rayanna felt sick, the reality hitting her again and she couldn’t stop the tears from falling, Suquie saw her and took her paw once more. Soon they arrived at the police station, where they were taken into another room. “Can we get you a drink ?” PC Squirley asked. “Have you got hot chocolate ?” Suquie asked. “Yes,” He replied and left the room. PC Splintier sat down and began sorting paperwork.

PC Squirley, went into the room next door, sat at the desk and picked up the phone. It was never a very nice job, phoning someone’s parents to tell them their child had been shoplifting, hearing the shock and disbelief in their voices. Mrs Switchly was shocked and devastated at the phone call from him, she said she would come immediately.

Next he phoned Ryanna’s brother.

Diago was enjoying his first beer with his mates, the football match had just started. Typical fellas, they were shouting and being raucous as soon as it started, when Diago’s phone rang. “Oh for fucks sake Di, turn it off,” One of his mates, Rio said. “Sorry lads, I better take it.” Diago said moving away from the television.”Yeah,” Diago said, still watching the footie.”Is this Diago Weedle?” A man asked him. “Yeah, who’s this, I’m kinda busy mate!” Diago told him. “This is Police Constable Splintier from the Crinkster police station. We have Rayanna here.” The PC explained. “No, you must be mistaken, Ray is at home, she’s grounded.” Diago replied.”I don’t think so Sir, Rayanna is here with her friend Suquie, Rayannna gave me your number as your parents are away.” Diago paused as the news sank in. “Yeah that’s right.” Diago told him. “Your sister has been arrested for shoplifting, we need you to come to the station please.” Diago stopped, looking at his phone, his friends stopped paying attention to the football, listening to the phone call instead. “Did you say shoplifting, Rayanna has been shoplifting?” Diago asked. “Yes Sir, listen, we really need you to be here.” “Shit, okay, I had a bottle of beer, am I still okay to drive ?” He asked the policeman. “As long as it was only one standard size, you will be fine, but please do not go speeding to get here.” PC Splintier told him. “I’m leaving now. Be there as soon as I can.” Diago told him before hanging up. “Shit man, has your little sister been arrested ?” Rio asked. “Yeah, I need to get home and get my car.” Diago was completely shocked. “I’ll drive you home, Di, it will be quicker for you. I’ve only had half a bottle.” Paulo told him. Diago was still stunned as Paulo drove him home.”Listen do not speed there, focus on your driving. Ray isn’t going anywhere without you.” Paulo told him as he dropped him home. “Tell us what happened later, okay man.” Diago nodded as he left the car, “Cheers mate,” he walked inside, grabbed his car keys, and left again.

Diago set his sat nav, then drove off, he knew he had to phone Pappa, but it was a conversation he really didn’t want to have, but he phoned anyway. “Diago, everything alright ?”, Pappa answered immediately. “I’m sorry to call you Pappa, I know you wanted no contact but something’s happened, you need to know.” Diago said cagily. “Tell me what’s going on. What’s happened?” Pappa asked. Diago took a deep breath and told him everything he knew so far. Pappa stayed silent the entire time, this was not a good sign, Diago had experienced the after effects from silences like this and not in a good way.

“Pappa, are you there ?” Diago asked. “I’m driving to the police station now.” “I’m here Diago, there is nothing I can do here, not until Mamma and I are home. I want you to punish her as you know I would / will do. I do not care what her backside looks like, she has disgraced this family once too many, and this, stealing…..I’m in a state of shock over it. I’m sorry this has come to you, do not tell Cara until she is home. No sense you both having a spoilt weekend.” “Pappa it was only a football match, obviously I shouldn’t have left her.” Diago said. “That was my decision to make, I thought after all that had happened she would be trusted to do as she was told.” Pappa explained. “Be me, along with Cara until we come home, I mean you punish that girl as you think I would. I most certainly will be punishing her myself but you are Head Of House for now, imagine in the future, your daughter doing this. But remember”……“Always punish when you are calm, not angry.” Diago interrupted and finished Pappa’s sentence. Pappa chuckled deeply, “You are really ready for your own family now. I’m proud of you son.” He hung up, knowing he could trust Diago and Cara until he was home. But he had to wait to punish his daughter as he knew her bottom would be very bruised, she needs healing time, maybe time to reflect but until then there are lots of other things he can do. She will have a month of not being out of sight from anybody and grounded for 2. But he had an idea what he’d like to do, he just had to see if it could happen. He was not a monster, neither would he ever abuse any of his family or anyone else, so for now he knew she would need healing time.

Diago got to the police station, he had felt calm, but now he was furious again. Quickly he parked the car and raced up the stairs to get to the front desk. He was immediately joined by PC Splintier, “Mr Weedle? PC Splintier” he said. “Yes Diago please. Where’s my sister?” he asked urgently. “This way, we’ve not interviewed her yet, we had to wait for a family member. I will tell you she’s trying to be cocky but I can see she’s falling apart.” What about Suquie ?” Diago asked. “Have her parents arrived ?” “Erm just, she’s been much more cocky than your sister.” The PC said before opening a door. There was Rayanna, looking forlorn, her eyes grew wide when he saw her and a large tear rolled down her face. “Don’t start with the tears Rayanna, you did this, you can deal with the outcome.” He told her sharply before sitting down next to her. 

“This is PC Wallis, so let’s get the interview started.” PC Splintier started. “Can I get you a drink ?” Diago shook his head.

PC Wallis pressed the record button on the recorder, introduced everyone then the questions began. Rayanna explained that Suquie said to nick some earrings, but she’d said no, she had money. But Suquie had said why use your money when you can just nick it. So she did. “Hang on, Rayanna, where did the money come from ? How much did you have ?” Diago asked. Rayanna looked to her knees, “Pappa’s office. In his hidden box.” She said quietly. “How much did you take ?” He asked. “£200.” She whispered. “Yet you still decided to steal from shops.” He stated. “I bought stuff too.” She told him in a bratty way. “Oh well that’s okay then.” He shouted at her.

After more questioning, Diago was faced with a bag of jewelry and makeup she had stolen, found stuffed in her pockets. Then the police lady showed him the clothes, some jewelry and makeup she had paid for, showing him the receipts. But also in the bag, were a few items with no receipts. “Are these stolen too ?” PC Splintier asked. Rayanna hung her head and nodded. “Yes Sir.” She replied. She started to feel ashamed of herself, feeling the anger in Diago as he sat next to her. All that was going through her head was, what will her Pappa say and do!

“So we have 26 stolen items Rayanna!” PC Wallis told her. Rayanna looked up surprised, had she really stolen that much ?

“Right now we’ve gone through everything, do you have anything else to say Rayanna ?” PC Splintier asked, again Rayanna bowed her head and shook it. “Okay, well I’m going to speak with my sergeant, and see what he wants to do.” Then he walked out.

There was no conversation in the room, PC Wallis tidied all the paperwork and then left also. The air was thick with tension, Rayanna couldn’t look at her brother, she felt his disappointment, his anger so she sat, messing with her fingers, picking at her nails. The time dragged on and on before PC Crinkstier and PC Wallis entered the room. “Right Rayanna, you’ve been very very lucky, as this is your only offense, my sergeant has decided not to take it further, but he has told me to tell you, if you are caught shoplifting again, anywhere, you will be prosecuted. Here is the bag containing the items you purchased legally and the rest of your belongings. Obviously you do not get to keep the stolen items. You’re free to leave but I do not want to see you here ever again. Do you hear me ?” His voice boomed in the small room. As Rayanna and Diago stood up. “Yes Sir.” She murmured and followed them out to the front of the desk. “Thank you Officer,” Diago said, shaking his hand, then walked out, leaving Rayanna to follow him quietly.

There was no conversation in the car, but she wondered where they were going as he drove the car to the shopping centre. Parking the car he said, “Come on, you are taking those things you actually bought back. Now!” Diago opened her door as she sulkily got out. “Why?” Rayanna dared to ask. Diago stopped, “Why…..WHY…..because you stole Pappa’s money to buy them, They are not yours to keep because you will be giving the money back to him. So move, NOW!” His voice was cold, harsh, Rayanna could see how angry he really was.

Over the next hour Diago and Rayanna went to the shops and returned the items. She gave him all the money then they left once more. The drive home was icily cold, Diago refused to begin a conversation with Rayanna, so she slunk down into her seat and looked out of the window. But began to feel really sick as they neared home.

Getting in the house, Rayanna went to go to her bedroom, “In Pappa’s office now young lady.” Diago sternly told her, he looked at his watch, “Stand in the corner, hands on your head and DO NOT MOVE.” She did as she was told quickly as Diago left the room. He found most of his siblings in the living room playing on a game console. “Colin, can you just go and get the others please. Thank you,” he said before Colin could complain. A few minutes later the remaining siblings all walked into the room. “Wassup D?” Colin asked. “Right I’ve had to get involved in a very serious situation with Rayanna. No doubt you will hear the details later but for now I have to deal with her. It’s 4.30pm, I’m going to give you enough money for you all to go and have a meal out and go to the cinema. You stay together for the meal and if you want to see different films that is okay, but I want you home no later than 10pm. You can sort out what film you want to watch at the place you go to eat.” “What she done D, you mitta’s well tell us.” Colin always enjoyed knowing when one of them was in trouble. “She stole money from Pappa’s office today and though she was grounded she went out with Suquie and they were caught shoplifting.” There were gasps from his siblings. “Cara does not know yet, Pappa wants her to enjoy her night away so do not tell her, any of you. Now please, get yourself ready, Sienna can you be in charge of the money please, I’ll give it to you before you leave?” He asked his sister, “Yes, sure D. Come on then, get ready quickly.” She called to the others. Diago headed to his room, he had money put away that he was saving, but he was sure Pappa would give him the money back. He just wanted the place quiet and empty whilst he dealt with Rayanna. But this was something he didn’t know how to do, what to do. Pappa told him to punish her as if he was Pappa punishing her. But how ? What does he use ? He thought of what was in Pappa’s locked cupboard, this contains the worst of the worst implements. Then he thought of the long rubber school strap. I bet Pappa would use that, the loopy no one likes along with the high impact cane. Then lastly if he wasn’t getting the desired effect from Ray he would bring out the lash. Yes, he thought to himself, that would do nicely. Diago also knew that there were cameras around the house and a few in the office, he didn’t know where exactly, but he knew they were there. Now he had a plan in his head, it was time to deal with it. He gave Sienna a wad of money, she said she had cash if she needed to use it too then all the kids left. The house suddenly felt cold, a deathly silence hung in the air. 

Diago stood up, he couldn’t put it off any longer, Rayanna needed punishing.
