Day 55 – Sober September Saturday

I love Autumn, the cool air, the changing of the leaves. I used to also always love Autumn as I used to always seem to do Saturday day drinking. I’d see it as my last hurrah before hibernating until Spring with a cupboard full of red wine. I mused this in the shower this morningContinue reading “Day 55 – Sober September Saturday”

Day 50 – The half way point

Day 50, wow. I’m as surprised as you are that I’m here. I thought I’d be able to wax lyrical about my beautiful dewy toxin free skin, however, unfortunately my body has regressed into a teenagers and I’m covered in horrible spots. I thought I’d be able to smugly announce my weight loss, however, I’mContinue reading “Day 50 – The half way point”

Day 45 – my achy, breaky, heart

When my alarm went off at 5:15am I wanted to hit it so hard. The wind was still howling outside as I threw on my swimsuit and snuggly clothes and headed out to the car. The drive took 10 minutes so I awkwardly hung out in the car park until others arrived and congregated aroundContinue reading “Day 45 – my achy, breaky, heart”

37 Days – Road Trip

We’ve safely made it to Devon and I’ve attempted to be more Jack pearson where possible. The step daughter has really tested my patience and I’ve managed to make a joke out of it and taken her and my friends daughter for ice cream whilst hubster stayed behind with BBs nap. My friend has alsoContinue reading “37 Days – Road Trip”

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”

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 25 – Rings and things

“Do you want a gin and tonic”, “no thanks”. “Come on have a glass of fizz”, “no thanks I’m going 100 days sober”. After explaining it a million times to my family, what is it they don’t get? My mum moved into her new home today and my sisters, my step daughter and I wentContinue reading “Day 25 – Rings and things”

Day 24 – The Hole

We stumbled over a hole today. Me and BB. When I mean stumble, I mean smash our knees (mine), whack our head (BB’s- they were in the baby carrier) and rip our toe nail off (mine).And we both cried. And cried. And cried. We cried when we got back to my mums, as we wereContinue reading “Day 24 – The Hole”
