Day 85 -Bittersweet

Day 85 – I think one of the interesting and slightly bittersweet areas of sobriety is finding out who your friends are. I blogged previously about telling one of my binge drinking buddies about my sobriety. I wasn’t sure whether she’d still come over for a cuppa when we were due to meet. I wasContinue reading “Day 85 -Bittersweet”

Day 83 – Moderation

Day 83 I’ve been thinking a lot today about moderation. It all started when a new dress arrived and discussing the next girls meal. Everyone was moaning about the grey day (I actually love grey days) and someone chipped in, was it too early to start on the wine. The response from the rest ofContinue reading “Day 83 – Moderation”

Day 78 – Mondayest Monday

My husband is the most loveliest husbands, I’m really lucky. After breaking down for the 15 time yesterday, he wrapped me in a blanket and put on Harry met Sally. I slept better and woke up later than normal. Had cuddles with BB and then we met one of her little friends for an outdoorsContinue reading “Day 78 – Mondayest Monday”

Day 70 – Treasure Hunt

I’m such a geek, I love planning surprises for people. I get so much more pleasure planning than I do receiving gifts myself. So it’s our first wedding anniversary tomorrow and I’d excitedly planned a treasure hunt for my hubby and my stepdaughter to complete today, starting when they got back from a walk. AsContinue reading “Day 70 – Treasure Hunt”

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”

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…”

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”
