Day 88 – two fat ladies

So if you weren’t aware (and sorry if you are and I’m teaching you to suck eggs), the term “two fat ladies” comes from bingo halls in the UK. It might also be in other countries, but I’ve not played bingo since being a kid in a social club with my Irish Nana. The termContinue reading “Day 88 – two fat ladies”

Day 86 – Tomorrow

I’m in a really bad head space about tomorrow and I just can’t seem to shake the foreboding feeling that’s going with it. For those of you that don’t know, when pregnant with BB, it was picked up I had a heart condition which was previously undetected. I’m lucky, it’s not massively serious (SVT) butContinue reading “Day 86 – Tomorrow”

Day 85 -Bittersweet

Day 85 – I think one of the interesting and slightly bittersweet areas of sobriety is finding out who your friends are. I blogged previously about telling one of my binge drinking buddies about my sobriety. I wasn’t sure whether she’d still come over for a cuppa when we were due to meet. I wasContinue reading “Day 85 -Bittersweet”

Day 83 – Moderation

Day 83 I’ve been thinking a lot today about moderation. It all started when a new dress arrived and discussing the next girls meal. Everyone was moaning about the grey day (I actually love grey days) and someone chipped in, was it too early to start on the wine. The response from the rest ofContinue reading “Day 83 – Moderation”

Day 82 – Day 2 of Isolation

Day 2 of isolation. I’ve eaten all the chocolate in the house. We have walked in the rain, I have crawled on my hands and knees pretending to be a dog and chasing BB. I have cleaned out our bathroom cupboard and found loads of hotel bath bottles so I can have a spa night.Continue reading “Day 82 – Day 2 of Isolation”

Day 81 – Day 1 of isolation

I started my isolation for my op today and the most tiring thing is trying to tire out a nearly 1 year old. BB is desperate to walk (but can’t), lies face down and screams when you leave the room and has an attention span of dory the fish. We’re currently on the second napContinue reading “Day 81 – Day 1 of isolation”

Day 71 – Dexter

Everyone meet Dex. I never thought we’d get a cat so soon with the passing of Karen last month. I’d said to my husband no more cats until BB is bigger and he agreed. But then little Dexter’s face appeared on my timeline. His head was covered in grease from a mite treatment and heContinue reading “Day 71 – Dexter”

Day 69 -Drinkers Remorse

I’ve had a lot of time to think, since I’m just sat here unable to do much. A thought keeps running around my mind. Now I’m a big believer in the film sliding doors, that everything happens for a reason and you always end up where you’re meant to be. However, there’s this niggling thoughtContinue reading “Day 69 -Drinkers Remorse”

Day 67 – White lies

I normally update later in the day, but I was so excited I’ve come on early. Yesterday we went for our anniversary meal and….. they had 2 glasses of chilled prosecco on our table waiting for us. I didn’t even think twice, I wasn’t even tempted, I sent them back. I wasnt confident enough toContinue reading “Day 67 – White lies”

Day 66 -Outings

Today me and BB went to her baby class and she loved it. Afterwards 2 mums and I went and sat on the grass with our babies and chatted. It was lovely. I’m super excited tonight, as it’s our anniversary meal out. We’re going to a super tasty independent that we love and I’m excitedContinue reading “Day 66 -Outings”
