Day 222 – Early Mornings and birthdays

I’m writing this in the inky blues of the first morning light of the day. I’m sat on my yoga mat, having just done my yoga practice for the day. Yesterday I had the bestest birthday in my whole 37 years. We literally just took BB to the park (my hubby booked the day offContinue reading “Day 222 – Early Mornings and birthdays”

Day 217 – Sunny Sober Saturday Mornings at 7 months

Saturday is my lie in day and I look forward to it all week. This Saturday was no different. Bb slept in and we all awoke together at 7am (most recently we’ve been lucky to sleep in until 530am). The hubster got her up, brought me a mint tea in bed and I sat contemplatingContinue reading “Day 217 – Sunny Sober Saturday Mornings at 7 months”

Day 210 – Lazy Sunday afternoons

Day 200 – The list

Today mark’s 200 days in my sobriety journey. To be honest I can’t believe its come round so fast. The first 100 days stretched so long, especially the first 30 to 40 days. Then the last 200 have flown by. Ive decided to do a list. A 40 things before I’m 40 list, to makeContinue reading “Day 200 – The list”

Day 195 – Snow Fun

Last night after my Friday night bath, I came down to see the front garden covered in snow. It was gorgeous. We excitedly got my SD out of bed (an echo to my childhood of when it snowed). We bundled her into warm clothes with her pjs underneath and head outside. We sledged, snowball foughtContinue reading “Day 195 – Snow Fun”

Day 188 – Alcohol Nightmares

I’ve just woken up all clammy with my heart racing. Last night in my dream I drank. I was sitting in a made up city bar by a window with a collection of people. I was dressed up, confident, glass of crisp, cool, white wine in hand. I remember taking a sip and then thinkingContinue reading “Day 188 – Alcohol Nightmares”

Day 180 – Beauty

In these cold, snowy, sober days I’m still managing to find beauty in everything. I’m trying (and sometimes failing) to let go of stress around home schooling my SD, trying to study myself and parent my beautiful baby. I’ve found being sober, not sobering. I’m still laughing more, getting up early to do my yogaContinue reading “Day 180 – Beauty”

Trudging Along — One Year Without

Thursday January 7th, 2021 Day 3 So I’m back to day 3 again. I guess the good thing about slipping really early on is that it doesn’t take that long to get back to where you were! After I drank on Day 4 the other day, I figured I might as well throw in the […]Continue reading “Trudging Along — One Year Without”

Day 126 – Standing on the Edge

Yesterday I took a day off social media to spend with family. I ended up being tested with my eating disorder, but hopefully it’s taught me an important lesson. The day started with a muddy 2.5 mile stomp with the SD over the fields by us. She jumped in puddles, ditches and we played poohContinue reading “Day 126 – Standing on the Edge”

Day 103 -Bloody Covid

Sorry I havent written for 2ish days. I’m just awaiting the results of a covid test and have been so stressed about it. I’ve only got a sore throat, (which is really sore), but my friend I’ve walked with earlier in the week has tested positive. Her only symptom was a sore throat, her husbandContinue reading “Day 103 -Bloody Covid”
