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”

Day 38 – Magic

Today my friend and I took my step daughter and my friends daughter to a socially distanced circus (with no animals). I loved watching their faces light up especially at the “magic” parts. Following on from this we walked to the beach front, had an ice cream trying to drag the day out longer. ChattingContinue reading “Day 38 – Magic”

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 36 – Be more Jack Pearson

Is there ever a character in a book, film or tv series that gets under your skin? Maybe you watch in horror, hands over eyes as you’d never want to be like that person (for me Eddie in Ab Fab). Or on the flip side a character you really admire. My character is Jack Pearson,Continue reading “Day 36 – Be more Jack Pearson”

Day 35 – Gliding like a Swan

5 weeks sober. Wow. My alarm went off at 6am after an awful nights sleep. This was mainly down to the fact I was up at 3am talking myself out of the wild swimming, I’d optimistically signed up for when filled with the joys of a pink fluffy. 5am someone walked past the house, presumablyContinue reading “Day 35 – Gliding like a Swan”

Day 33 – love, life, loss

Yesterday ended up being the biggest test so far in sobriety and in all honesty I would’ve broke if it wasnt for my husband. I got the all clear from the boob clinic which was fantastic and I feel very lucky. I came home and was playing with BB just after her afternoon nap. WeContinue reading “Day 33 – love, life, loss”
