Day 98- Fricking Xmas cake

I decided to be all Mary Berry (instead of a merry berry) this year and have a go at baking a Xmas cake. I’ve never baked one before, but after watching mum as a child bake one I’ve always thought how hard could it be? For someone quite disorganised, its ridiculously hard. Firstly, my husbandContinue reading “Day 98- Fricking Xmas cake”

Day 97- More National Trust

I literally went straight to bed after writing last night, with a handful of obligatory chocolates and my book. I curled up and slept like I was dead. A benefit of sobriety, I cant be more grateful for. We all woke up around 7 and the weird mood of yesterday was hanging on to myContinue reading “Day 97- More National Trust”

Day 96 –

I’ve never been tempted more than today to drink. The day in some respects has been lovely. BB and I went National Trusting with a friend. We both gazed in wonder at the colours of Autumn on a wood walk. She constantly reached up and tried to touch the leaves. We shared a lunch outsideContinue reading “Day 96 –”

Day 93 – Ugh

I’ve not really got any content to add today. I’m so disappointed with the latest lockdown news. I feel like the whole country pulled together at the start of the year to give the government time to come up with a strategy and all they’ve done is blow a ton of money and we’re backContinue reading “Day 93 – Ugh”

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 54 – Sunflowers

I decided to bring a bit of brightness to my day today when another grey, bland day raised its head. So I brought some flowers to cheer myself up and I love them. I’ve also had a lovely day (well afternoon) with my SD. Her mum and I had been unsuccessfully attempting to gently cajoleContinue reading “Day 54 – Sunflowers”

Day 52 – Mixing it up

I’ve been recently reading the happiness project and finding the book fascinating. Not only is it inspiring hearing her story, I’m also enjoying all the facts and figures behind her own experience. I took my SD horse riding today, with her glamorous mum in attendance too. I’d been having a lovely day until this point,Continue reading “Day 52 – Mixing it up”

Day 41 – the benefits so far…

Apologies in advance for a bit of a ramble, it started as a personal list but thought it might be good to share, incase anyone else was interested or sober curious. These are the benefits I’ve noticed in just 40 days or so, so far The benefits 1) The addicted voice in my head hasContinue reading “Day 41 – the benefits so far…”
