Day 229 – Big Fat Cravings

I’m suffering from big, fat, mouth watering cravings tonight. I know what’s causing it. I’ve had a rubbish week, banging head ache for 2 days, rushed yoga practice, little time to myself and my step daughter really grating. This evening, I ran (read waddled) with my lovely mummy friend. We went around a local villageContinue reading “Day 229 – Big Fat Cravings”

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 213 – Home Schooling trouble

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m over home schooling. I have everything crossed for 8th March the kids going back to school and BB and I having our lovely days back together. My SD has told her mum it appears that I don’t sit with her during her school work. That she strugglesContinue reading “Day 213 – Home Schooling trouble”

Day 204 – hello February

New month. I can’t wait. I already feel tons better than I did end of December. The yoga is becoming a daily habit and my early mornings are starting to feel sacred to my mental wellbeing for the rest of the day. I’m also learning to adapt. This morning BB woke up at the sameContinue reading “Day 204 – hello February”

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 196- The Golden Hours

Whilst every hour is 60 minutes (unless you’re working a god awful job then every hour feels like a 1,000), there are some hours that are golden. I was lucky enough to have not one but two today. My daughter (BB) is 15 months and struggling with her teeth terribly at the moment. When itContinue reading “Day 196- The Golden Hours”

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 193 – And breathe

I haven’t posted for a few days as I’ve been so stressed over this situation with the ex wife. And whilst round 1 might be over for now, I know there’s another fight looming in our future. We found out yesterday, after all those threats, the manipulation that we were letting my SD down, theContinue reading “Day 193 – And breathe”

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”
