What I Did On My Holidays

Well, to be honest, I didn't do much at all. I read lots and swam lots, and slept lots. And that's about it. One day I did do something, which was to go to La Granja, a country estate in the hills, which still has the large Hacienda style house open to the public, and dressed in a turn of the century (as in 19th/20th!) style.
It's nice to know that even abroad, there were proper measures in places for keeping the young ladies of the house is order:

The carpet beaters hanging ready for the maids who have done the ironing wrong.

The wooden spoons displayed on the wall to remind the kitchen girls to keep their minds on the job.

And any suggestions as to what this is on the bed, would be welcome!

It's a classical Iberian custard-mincer, as any fule kno.

Harriet said...

A lobster pot?!

You are *such* a pervert. Fancy wandering around a country house thinking such naughty thoughts. You should be spanked, I tell you. Spanked!

Or an upside-down log basket being used to cage an escaping teddy bear. What the dickens is it??

You lot are rubbish!! I don't know the answer, that's why I'm asking you!
To be fair, Abel is right. My only suggestion was: to bend someone over on a bed... I am a pervert. said...

It's to put over someone's injured leg so the bedcovers don't irritate it. But the kinky options are way more fun.

...over somebody's injured bottom, surely?
