Day 82 – Day 2 of Isolation

Day 2 of isolation. I’ve eaten all the chocolate in the house. We have walked in the rain, I have crawled on my hands and knees pretending to be a dog and chasing BB. I have cleaned out our bathroom cupboard and found loads of hotel bath bottles so I can have a spa night.Continue reading “Day 82 – Day 2 of Isolation”

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 think IContinue reading “Day 12 – the beer in the fridge”

Day 8- the fog hits

They’ve sat in the corner all week taunting me, “look how much money you’ve wasted”, “bet you can’t recall one night from theseContinue reading “Day 8- the fog hits”

Day 6

So Day 6, came around on a Friday. I’ve been dreading and also slightly excited about the weekend. An anticipation like the first day of school, would I survive? What activities would I do? Would a friend I was seeing on Friday night expect me to drink? How would I survive the trip to ourContinue reading “Day 6”
