Ralph Lauren might get me spanked

Ok not directly, but my title isn't as tenuous as it might seem. You see my husband has a sweater with the famous emblem on it (he doesn't usually like emblems on things but this is small), nothing special but it's a conservative grey which he likes and he wears it over a proper shirt sometimes on a cold day, he says its comfortable but still smart. Anyway he spilled what looks like coffee on it, presumably last winter because he hasn't worn it recently, and hadn't told me about it but he did fish it out a couple of days ago and asked me if I could drop it into the cleaners next time I went.

I checked the label and it was washable so I washed it instead, a woollens wash, and put it outside to dry while the weather was good. Unfortunately I didn't quite follow the label guide of laying flat to dry which takes ages, I just treated it as normal, (like many other jumpers I've washed over time) but it's gone a bit funny, maybe it didn't like spinning, it looks like it's shrunk a bit and it isn't as soft as it was. Ok it was my fault, I accept that, and if I'd taken it to the cleaners and same had happened then it would have been their fault and compensation would have been in order, but I didn't follow husband's or the label's.

I have choices, I can own up right away, apologise and say I'll buy him a new one or I can say the cleaners ruined it and I'm making a claim against them which they've already accepted, which would be a lie and might get found out. And why tell a lie anyway, it's my husband for gods sake, he knows accidents happen and he'll understand that I thought I was doing what was best. But there's an opportunity here, depending how I deliver the bad news, to get spanked:) and not an entirely playful one if I show at least some level of deceit or couldn't care attitude (which actually wouldn't be true). I've put it in his wardrobe amongst other stuff, saying nothing for now, maybe he'll put it on and think it's ok but I doubt it, I suppose a bit of deceit is already evident, I'm just buying time though really, whether to mention it or wait till he comes to wear it, It'll come to me, I'll probably try for the spanking option depending on circumstances at the time.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by for LOL days, especially my lurkers who left comments and course a big thank you to Hermione

Have a good week.

Owning up next weekend might be the best way forward.

Roz said...

Hi Ronnie, I hope it works out the way you want :) Sorry I have missed you lately. I have been awol recently and completely missed LOL day and just now finding a bit of time to catch up with some blog friends.

Hi Ronnie, I guess you will be spanked whether you own up or not as you didn't follow orders. As long as the spanking is the one you want, enjoy!
Hugs Lindy

Hi Ronnie, a spanking it is going to be, I say let him discover it for himself and then see what happens. I recently washed a woolly jumper of my husbands and for some reason it shrank. I was all innocent like as if I hadn't noticed and blamed the wool!! I have given it to my son as it fits him now! Told dil not to wash it!!
Good luck
love Jan,xx

MrJ said...

I am sure i won't take you that long. May the response be more than in kind.

abby said...

I see a spanking in your future....just be sure to share it with us.
hugs abby

Ella said...

At least it will be a "designer" spanking when it happens. Remember that old saying, "Everything comes out in the wash." If you are really up for the spanking, you could hint that perhaps he has put on a bit of weight.

Hugs Across the Pond,

Hi Ronnie, sorry about the sweater, but that was an accident, so maybe it isn't too bad. I think I couldn't wait because I'd have a bad conscience from not telling. However, you could always remind your husband that you didn't follow instructions. Just saying. Wishing you a great week, too.



Hermione said...

I think it's more likely that you will be spanked for hiding it in the closet and letting P find it ruined. Maybe owning up right now and being truly remorseful would get you off the hook (or off his lap:)


ronnie said...

Michael - Not a good weekend to own up:) Thank you.

Roz - Hope things are OK. Always lovely to see you here. Thank you.

Lindy - Yep, probably be spanked whatever. Thanks.

Jan - Perfect. I'll blame the wool:) Thank.

MrJ - I feel bad that I've left it in the wardrobe but haven't decided yet.
Thank you.

Abby - I'll do that if it happens. Thanks.

Ella - :) No couldn't tell him he was putting on weight as it might worry him. Thanks.

Nina - LOL That will sure get me spanked. So that's a possibility. Thanks.

Hermione - you are probably right but I don't want to be off his lap:) Thanks.


Cat said...

Ooh Ronnie...If you leave it in his drawer, wait for him to put it on and find it doesn't fit and then admit you didn't follow instructions, I'm betting you are in for a barn burner.

You could fill a sink with cold water, mix in about a quarter cup of hair conditioner and soak the sweater for about 15 minutes. Wring the majority of water out of the sweater, lay flat on a large towel and roll to squeeze all the water out. Then lay the sweater out flat to dry...blocking (stretching) it. This may fix the problem.

If you follow my suggestion, still admit what you have done and how you considered deceiving him...should reward you with somewhat of a barn burner. ;)

Hugs and blessings...Cat

PK said...

I say the only thing you might have done wrong so far is not telling him what happened. But it could all work out for the best in the end.

Minelle Labraun said...

I know you will do the RIGHT thing. *wink*

ronnie said...

Cat - Sounds like a win win whatever:) I did soak it in washing softener but hasn't done anything. Thanks.

PK - I'm thinking of telling him. Thanks.

Minelle - Thanks for the confidence:) Thanks.

As my P would say, you're doomed, doomed!
Now that I should put reading glasses on to read labels, things are not coming out the wash the same.
