Day 65 – Park Picnics

Yesterday I was so tired, I some how time travelled back to day 54. It was actually day 64, those 10 days make all the difference. Today BB and I have met another lovely mum and baby for a socially distanced park picnic. At first I was a little nervous due to the restrictions, however,Continue reading “Day 65 – Park Picnics”

Day 63 – Swims and Walks

After falling over the stair gate last night and sporting bruises that made me look like I’d been in a fight, I got up and reluctantly went swimming this morning. To be honest, I really didnt want to go. My body was sore and bruised and my bed was warm and comfy. It was theContinue reading “Day 63 – Swims and Walks”

Day 60 – Alcohol, the abusive partner

Today BB woke up in a grumpy mood. Possibly getting over a little bug they’ve had or teething or probably both. I had 3 hours to entertain them inbetween nap times and after playing with all their toys, lunch and an outfit change after a little accident we still had 2 hours to go. IContinue reading “Day 60 – Alcohol, the abusive partner”

Day 59 – New Friends

Today we (and when I say we I mean me and BB), went to our first baby class since lock down. I’ve been so excited about getting out again and mixing with other mummys and babies. We get there in plenty of time and settle in on our mat next to (well 2 meters away)Continue reading “Day 59 – New Friends”

Day 57 – Time

I’m finding time strange at the moment. Days seem to be whizzing by at a fast rate, BB is developing more and more and will soon be walking. I’m nearly at 60 days sober. On 21st September I’ll have been married a whole year. At the same time cravings seem to last forever, interviewing anContinue reading “Day 57 – Time”

Day 55 – Sober September Saturday

I love Autumn, the cool air, the changing of the leaves. I used to also always love Autumn as I used to always seem to do Saturday day drinking. I’d see it as my last hurrah before hibernating until Spring with a cupboard full of red wine. I mused this in the shower this morningContinue reading “Day 55 – Sober September Saturday”

Day 51 – The Squad

Today I’m proud and slightly flabbergasted (isn’t that a great word) to announce I’m part of a swim squad. A swim squad that meets at 6am in the mornings 😂. If you’d told me 51 days ago I’d be part of a swim squad in less than 2 months and I’d be complimented on myContinue reading “Day 51 – The Squad”

37 Days – Road Trip

We’ve safely made it to Devon and I’ve attempted to be more Jack pearson where possible. The step daughter has really tested my patience and I’ve managed to make a joke out of it and taken her and my friends daughter for ice cream whilst hubster stayed behind with BBs nap. My friend has alsoContinue reading “37 Days – Road Trip”

Day 36 – Be more Jack Pearson

Is there ever a character in a book, film or tv series that gets under your skin? Maybe you watch in horror, hands over eyes as you’d never want to be like that person (for me Eddie in Ab Fab). Or on the flip side a character you really admire. My character is Jack Pearson,Continue reading “Day 36 – Be more Jack Pearson”

Day 34 – Self Care Saturday

Firstly thank you for all the comments regarding this week. I feel very humbled and lucky to have made such lovely connections in such a short time. I am really touched. Tomorrow I’ll be 5 weeks sober. I still can’t believe it, if I’m honest it feels like yesterday and years ago at the sameContinue reading “Day 34 – Self Care Saturday”
