Day 88 – two fat ladies

So if you weren’t aware (and sorry if you are and I’m teaching you to suck eggs), the term “two fat ladies” comes from bingo halls in the UK. It might also be in other countries, but I’ve not played bingo since being a kid in a social club with my Irish Nana. The termContinue reading “Day 88 – two fat ladies”

Day 87 – I survived

I survived!!!! My dodgy internal psychic was wrong again. I’m so so relieved to wake up. And they managed to zap the extra circuit so I’ve got a 95% chance of success. My dr was absolutely lovely (read gorgeous) and although I was awake for most of the procedure and could feel the burning andContinue reading “Day 87 – I survived”

Day 84 – well hellloooo hair

Day 84 I’ve always had thin and let’s face it rather lank hair but lots of it. Over the years this has made it hard to grow and prone to splitting. I always thought the poor growth was due to gene’s and the fact I bleached it with highlights every 6 to 8 weeks whichContinue reading “Day 84 – well hellloooo hair”

Day 83 – Moderation

Day 83 I’ve been thinking a lot today about moderation. It all started when a new dress arrived and discussing the next girls meal. Everyone was moaning about the grey day (I actually love grey days) and someone chipped in, was it too early to start on the wine. The response from the rest ofContinue reading “Day 83 – Moderation”

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 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 56 – happiness

After a rough week, today I am so happy. I feel as if its like a brook of happiness bubbling up inside me. I had a beautiful morning swim, where the coldness of the water felt exhilarating. I drove across the countryside taking in the morning sun on the freshly harvested fields. I came homeContinue reading “Day 56 – happiness”

Day 49 – Zero Sleep

After writing yesterday BBs cold got really grotty to the point where it became apparent the only place they were comfortable sleeping was in my arms. I set up a make shift bed downstairs in our tiny home, to give the hubster a chance of getting some sleep over the intermittent screams. And I sit.Continue reading “Day 49 – Zero Sleep”

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…”

Day 39 – The Climb

Normally when we’re down in Devon, Thursday night is a girls night. The husbands put the kids to bed and we normally go for a stroll to the harbour and have a few gins. This time round I suggested a small hike down the coastal path to a beach that has been described as aContinue reading “Day 39 – The Climb”
