Day 149 – Step families and Covid

As I predicted over a cuppa this weekend to my bemused (at the time) husband, it is all kicking off over my step daughter and covid. My step daughters bubble has got to isolate, there have been 5 cases in the last few days. She was spending the weekend with her mother when the newsContinue reading “Day 149 – Step families and Covid”

Day 147 – Xmas ready and Yoga

In the panic of my SD potentially bringing in some festive covid on this forthcoming Wednesday, we decided to get Xmas ready today. I’ve finally completed the wrapping, like all of it. To be honest, I was dreading the wrapping. Normally in years gone by I’d be doing this in the evenings, with a glassContinue reading “Day 147 – Xmas ready and Yoga”

Day 144 – Thankful

The weather is cold, grey and lashing down with rain. The sort of rain that bites your skin, where the sting is still felt an hour after you get in. Today we walked in this weather, round some fields and a park to stay out of he house whilst the carpenter fitted a bannister. BBContinue reading “Day 144 – Thankful”

Day 143 – First Words

My beautiful baby (BB) has finally said her first words…. and they were Mama. I literally cried when she said it. All her little friends are babbling but she’s never been that bothered. So now hearing mama over and over again (even at 6am this morning), well my heart sings. I’d like to think it’sContinue reading “Day 143 – First Words”

Day 128 – Winner

I think the universe likes to play funny tricks on us. Just as my scheduled eating was working for me, life threw a curve ball. I’d won a competition for a Autumnal treat box. Inside was lots of yummy treats. This sent me into another anxiety driven spiral, until I managed to make a plan.Continue reading “Day 128 – Winner”

Day 124 – 4 months

So I reached 4 months yesterday and didn’t even realise until my sister text me to congratulate me (she reached 4 months today). I feel so proud that I’ve got here and thankful to the blog and you guys for all your support. When she text I’d literally just seen this image on someone’s storiesContinue reading “Day 124 – 4 months”

Day 115 -The day before lock down

Today was the last early morning of swimming (photo from the car park). It was the first time I’ve had to de-ice the car at 5:20am but it was worth it. It was a great session. It was also our last baby class, BB and I before lock down. I’m so sad, she’s going toContinue reading “Day 115 -The day before lock down”

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 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 109 – Horses

Today I binged terribly, but not all in one go. More like binge grazing through out the day. Each time I did I felt terribly guilty, like I used to with alcohol, but the impulse felt over powering each time it occured. Basically when I’m in this mind set if it’s there I’ll obsess untilContinue reading “Day 109 – Horses”
