Day 54 – A bite

I haven’t got much to say today. Apart from during a walk over the fields this evening. I was unfortunate to get bitten by a horse fly on my neck. This of course stung, then smarted and it then grew, getting more and more itchy on my neck. By the time I got home IContinue reading “Day 54 – A bite”

Day 63 – Swims and Walks

After falling over the stair gate last night and sporting bruises that made me look like I’d been in a fight, I got up and reluctantly went swimming this morning. To be honest, I really didnt want to go. My body was sore and bruised and my bed was warm and comfy. It was theContinue reading “Day 63 – Swims and Walks”

Day 60 – Alcohol, the abusive partner

Today BB woke up in a grumpy mood. Possibly getting over a little bug they’ve had or teething or probably both. I had 3 hours to entertain them inbetween nap times and after playing with all their toys, lunch and an outfit change after a little accident we still had 2 hours to go. IContinue reading “Day 60 – Alcohol, the abusive partner”

Day 58 – Blah

I’ve been really lucky today as my husband gave up his run so I could swim. I’m really enjoying being in the water, getting lost in my thoughts as my body finds its rhythm. It’s definitely me time and I’m going to miss it when I’m at home recovering from the operation next month. InContinue reading “Day 58 – Blah”

Day 57 – Time

I’m finding time strange at the moment. Days seem to be whizzing by at a fast rate, BB is developing more and more and will soon be walking. I’m nearly at 60 days sober. On 21st September I’ll have been married a whole year. At the same time cravings seem to last forever, interviewing anContinue reading “Day 57 – Time”

Day 53 – Grey Day

It’s one of those grey days today. You know the ones. When it’s grey outside, cold and dull inside, like the light has been sucked out of the world. I sit outside whilst on the phone to a client during BBs nap as my phone reception is so rubbish in the house and the coldContinue reading “Day 53 – Grey Day”

Day 51 – The Squad

Today I’m proud and slightly flabbergasted (isn’t that a great word) to announce I’m part of a swim squad. A swim squad that meets at 6am in the mornings 😂. If you’d told me 51 days ago I’d be part of a swim squad in less than 2 months and I’d be complimented on myContinue reading “Day 51 – The Squad”

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 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”
