Day 61 – Afternoon Tea

Today I went for afternoon tea. But not any old afternoon tea, oh no, afternoon tea with my husbands ex wife. (Yes you read it right). To celebrate my step daughter donating her hair for charity, her mum booked this as a lovely surprise for her to say well done. Then kindly invited me toContinue reading “Day 61 – Afternoon Tea”

Day 58 – Blah

I’ve been really lucky today as my husband gave up his run so I could swim. I’m really enjoying being in the water, getting lost in my thoughts as my body finds its rhythm. It’s definitely me time and I’m going to miss it when I’m at home recovering from the operation next month. InContinue reading “Day 58 – Blah”

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 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”

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 29 – Advice and thunderstorms

My step daughter has headed back to her mothers for a week and the house feels calm. I could almost feel my shoulders drop from relief when the door shut behind her (well actually she left it wide open but you get the gist). She’d wet the bed overnight and I felt so sorry forContinue reading “Day 29 – Advice and thunderstorms”

Day 28 – and so it continues

Theres something quite relaxing about the light slipping away. The pink hues turning to inky blues. I had a lovely evening last night, sitting in bed chatting to other bloggers on here, swapping stories and reading my book with a tonic water. BB slept through the night and when they woke up at 5am forContinue reading “Day 28 – and so it continues”

Day 27 – Step Mum guilt and blended families

I’m sorry blog but I need to vent. Anyone who is part of a blended family knows how hard it is to make it work for all involved. My husband constantly feels at loss when his eldest child is with her mother, and then showers her with attention to the point of almost ignoring BBContinue reading “Day 27 – Step Mum guilt and blended families”

Day 25 – Rings and things

“Do you want a gin and tonic”, “no thanks”. “Come on have a glass of fizz”, “no thanks I’m going 100 days sober”. After explaining it a million times to my family, what is it they don’t get? My mum moved into her new home today and my sisters, my step daughter and I wentContinue reading “Day 25 – Rings and things”
