Day 89 – Babysitting

Tonight I’m being babysat by my mother which is enough to drive anyone to drink. Whilst I’m feeling betterish and venturing out of bed, I can’t lift anything including BB for a week and the hubster is out tonight for a curry with friends (I’ve urged him to go). My mum and I have anContinue reading “Day 89 – Babysitting”

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 79 – looking forward

I came across this photo I took 2 years ago in Berlin and loved the colours of Autumn so thought I’d share it. I’m hoping this Autumn is as colourful. I’ve got a night swim this evening, my first ever. I’m really excited to go and I’m even more excited that my sister is comingContinue reading “Day 79 – looking forward”

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 76 – Bashful

I feel slightly bashful of my meltdown yesterday. I think the question just hit a nerve and I spent the evening half watching car share whilst examining my reaction and what it meant. I think I’m hyper sensitive to anything atm as I’m working myself up about my forthcoming heart procedure and also desperately wonderingContinue reading “Day 76 – Bashful”

Day 74 – Any old tat and a comforter

Today when walking BB on our circular route that takes us through a park and past a couple of charity shops a bread bin in a window of one caught my eye. Now, I’ve been hankering after a bread bin for quite a few months as my husband is a complete bread/toast fiend. At anyContinue reading “Day 74 – Any old tat and a comforter”

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 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”
