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 242 – 5am wake ups

Today my little munchable BB woke us all up at 5am. The whole house. So my hubster and I tagged teamed getting the children up and had our showers. By this point it was 6am. Between 6am and 8am before my step daughter left for school, I’d made a pasta bake for BBs lunch andContinue reading “Day 242 – 5am wake ups”

Day 196- The Golden Hours

Whilst every hour is 60 minutes (unless you’re working a god awful job then every hour feels like a 1,000), there are some hours that are golden. I was lucky enough to have not one but two today. My daughter (BB) is 15 months and struggling with her teeth terribly at the moment. When itContinue reading “Day 196- The Golden Hours”

Day 165 – Christmas Eve

It’s Christmas eve. Christmas eve boxes have been opened, stockings hung and my SD has already headed back to her mums house. Bb is napping, hubby is out getting a few last bits (read panic buying) and I’m curled up with my kindle and a cuppa. In this moment I feel so at peace. IContinue reading “Day 165 – Christmas Eve”

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 154 – Dreary Sundays

“Oh the weather outside is frightful, but inside it’s quite delightful”. That pretty much sums up today. Earlier I ran 3 miles in sleet and loved it. I’m definitely a winter runner, love the feeling of the rain pelting my face. Talking of running, my running friend went to our cheese and wine deli toContinue reading “Day 154 – Dreary Sundays”

Day 120 – Big little feelings

Yesterday I woke up in such a funk and it completely took me by surprise. The night before I’d had my glorious self care night and watched virgin river, in bed, with a tonic water. I’d had 8 hours sleep. I’d set myself up for a great Sunday. All morning I felt anxious, snappy andContinue reading “Day 120 – Big little feelings”

Day 110 – Full circle

Today we went to a childrens farm. It’s actually become a special place to me. You see 112 days ago, I stumbled round this childrens farm, with my BB (Beautiful Baby), my SD and a raging hangover. It wasn’t a warm day, but I had the sweats, cotton wool mouth, a pounding head and IContinue reading “Day 110 – Full circle”

Day 104 – Isolation

Still in isolation awaiting the results. Curled up with a cuppa whilst BB naps. Hubster was on to me straight away when I suggested I go and lie down “to rest”. Git. He’s also pointed out we’ve ran out of toblerone and cant go out (that noise is my waist line rejoicing). In an absoluteContinue reading “Day 104 – Isolation”

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”
