Day 184 – 6 months sober

For 6 months I’ve lived authentically (or at the very least that’s what its felt like). I chose not to drink alcohol any more after a terrible trip to a childrens farm with a hangover (think the stench of cows combined with the hangover heaves). However, I still continued to drink for the next 2Continue reading “Day 184 – 6 months sober”

Day 118 – Morning Runs

Today I left the kids with their dad and got my trainers out and ran this morning. I’ve got some lovely fields by our home so I went to do a circuit round them, leaving trails in the dewy grass. As leaving them, I snapped this shot, although the photo doesnt do it justice. I’mContinue reading “Day 118 – Morning Runs”

Day 116 – First day of lockdown

And so far have had a tea party with the cat Dexter and BB (beautiful baby)😂. I’ve also ran a mile without stopping which feels pretty pathetic to be proud of (I used to run half marathons). But I’m proud of just putting my trainers on, getting out the house, and running. A month aContinue reading “Day 116 – First day of lockdown”

Day 114 – “Awakening is not just a tick box exercise…”

“… it’s a process”. That’s Adrienne’s gem today when doing her Awaken day 3. I’m going to be honest, I couldn’t fully let myself go and get into todays practice. But I’m learning from it. The cabinet man turned up unexpectedly (before we had even agreed a quote) to fit the cabinets this morning andContinue reading “Day 114 – “Awakening is not just a tick box exercise…””

Day 113 – “From my home to yours”…

So I may have borrowed another Adriene quote, but she always says something so profound at the end of each session it’s hard not to. Todays session was intend and it asked us to look inside and ask what do we intend. My monkey brain went crazy for a second, but settled on to seeContinue reading “Day 113 – “From my home to yours”…”

Day 112 – The awesome in me…

…. recognises the awesome in you. I’ve just done day 1 of Adrienne “Home” yoga work out and it finished with that line. For some reason when she said it a warm glow washed over my body and I wanted to share it with you and pass on the awesomeness. I’ve decided to do herContinue reading “Day 112 – The awesome in me…”

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 99 – I’ve got 99 problems but alcohol isn’t one

Well any more that is. I literally can not believe tomorrow is day 100. I’ve been blogging for 93. It feels so surreal. At the start of the process I remember having a discussion with the lovely and wise Ainsobriety about getting rid of the alcohol in the house. I remember her suggesting it andContinue reading “Day 99 – I’ve got 99 problems but alcohol isn’t one”

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 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”
