Day 42 – Sober Sisters

Day 42 – 6 weeks sober, bring out the trumpets. I lake swam again this morning and really enjoyed the scenery, the light reflecting off the water and the chill of the water on my body. One of the coaches asked whether I was going to put my head under or use goggles. I quiteContinue reading “Day 42 – Sober Sisters”

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 40 – finding my path

It’s our last day in Devon and I’ve finally finished the sober diaries. I don’t know which one I’m most sad about tbh. We did the normal kids activities (rock pool examining, crab fishing, glitter painting). Then my lovely friend and I decided to head on down to Croyde beach as we’d heard it wasContinue reading “Day 40 – finding my path”

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”

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 34 – Self Care Saturday

Firstly thank you for all the comments regarding this week. I feel very humbled and lucky to have made such lovely connections in such a short time. I am really touched. Tomorrow I’ll be 5 weeks sober. I still can’t believe it, if I’m honest it feels like yesterday and years ago at the sameContinue reading “Day 34 – Self Care Saturday”

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”

Day 32 – The lump

I’m reading the Sober diaries I’ve just got to the bit where the author discovers she has breast cancer. This has struck a cord due to the fact I’m currently sitting in a waiting room at a hospital writing this post waiting for my own lump to be checked out. It’s feels sort of spookyContinue reading “Day 32 – The lump”
