...when a girl can't get the personal attention that she needs. In fact, I'd say not spanking a needy spanko is on a par with kicking a cat.
I don't like to complain, but I'm going to - sorry. I feel like my needs are so far down the agenda at the moment that they're off the scale.
But should I make a fuss, or should I be doing the British stiff upper lip thing? Your advice would be helpful.
Here's the evidence. Firstly, SO is out of work, has been for some time and is getting really grumpy about it. The old contract finished in March and since then there's only been odd days here and there.
So, I have to offer sympathy and be always looking for a bright side. I'm not that good at either and it seems that we're doing more arguing than loving these days.
Then there's the fact that Older Daughter is about to start at university, bless her. She's given up her job and is now devoting all her time to getting stuff ready (and most of ours too).
The amount of emotional energy coming out of her is scary - and draining. It's like everybody else in the house has to be 110% focussed on her and the coming adventure.
Which all means that the little itch that I need scratching isn't likely to get scratched any time soon... I;m tempted to kick the cat.
Can we please get some doctor somewhere to quantify how harmful it is for us spank addicts to go without a spanking? Then perhaps I could get it on prescription!
