Day 265 – 100 days to go

I realised today I have a 100 days until I reach a full year of sobriety. It’s weird as it doesn’t feel like a long time at all. But then the first 100 days felt like such a long hard slog. Today we have met my family in the park (to get it over withContinue reading “Day 265 – 100 days to go”

Day 263 – Still Standing

I’m still standing (just). After vowing to never eat another bite of chocolate on saturday night, I’ve had some every day. Some days I’ve binged. Some days I’ve had just a little. I’ve decided to park it for now and enjoy Easter. I’ll let future me deal with this. It’s been warm and sunny hereContinue reading “Day 263 – Still Standing”

Day 213 – Home Schooling trouble

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m over home schooling. I have everything crossed for 8th March the kids going back to school and BB and I having our lovely days back together. My SD has told her mum it appears that I don’t sit with her during her school work. That she strugglesContinue reading “Day 213 – Home Schooling trouble”

Day 193 – And breathe

I haven’t posted for a few days as I’ve been so stressed over this situation with the ex wife. And whilst round 1 might be over for now, I know there’s another fight looming in our future. We found out yesterday, after all those threats, the manipulation that we were letting my SD down, theContinue reading “Day 193 – And breathe”

Day 189 – When the sh*t hits

The grenade went off last night when my husband emailed his ex wife regarding the private school she is hell bent on sending my step daughter to. She is wishing to break the court ordered financial agreement and contribute less towards childcare due to her funding the school. She also by default wants us toContinue reading “Day 189 – When the sh*t hits”

Day 182 – Walks

Today I made time to escape the house and do a big walk with a friend over the fields by us. The husband is in a mood as he’s currently sword fighting his ex wife over her wishes to send their daughter to private school and the implications and added cost to ourselves (she’ll payContinue reading “Day 182 – Walks”

Day 160 – Baking Cookies

So yesterday we logged on to the class interactive teaching tool to see what lessons were planned for that day. The teacher had “kindly” said “have fun” and then left a list of fun activities for them to try. I read the list (watch a movie, bake cookies, have a dance party, get outside) andContinue reading “Day 160 – Baking Cookies”

Day 153 – 5 months and baby kisses

Today marks 5 months of giving up alcohol (I’ve decided to count it from today). Today was also the first day I discovered how gorgeous (yet slobbery) baby kisses are. Emma gave me her first baby kiss and it melted my heart. I’d gone out for the morning to get my hair done and spentContinue reading “Day 153 – 5 months and baby kisses”

Day 152 – Gingerbread

Today in isolation we made gingerbread. I enjoyed the task with my SD, it was nice. She also loved it. My eating has gone a little bit squiffy again, but I feel quite relaxed about it. I ate 2 pieces of gingerbread with a hot chocolate with cream and had a pizza for tea. NormallyContinue reading “Day 152 – Gingerbread”

Day 151 –

My SD came early this morning and the house feels so much more alive having her here. Thankfully her test came back negative, she’s just got a nasty viral infection and cough. She loves the Xmas tree and loves that BB is now saying mama, dadda and cat. She’s desperately trying to teach her toContinue reading “Day 151 –”
