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 69 -Drinkers Remorse

I’ve had a lot of time to think, since I’m just sat here unable to do much. A thought keeps running around my mind. Now I’m a big believer in the film sliding doors, that everything happens for a reason and you always end up where you’re meant to be. However, there’s this niggling thoughtContinue reading “Day 69 -Drinkers Remorse”

Day 67 – White lies

I normally update later in the day, but I was so excited I’ve come on early. Yesterday we went for our anniversary meal and….. they had 2 glasses of chilled prosecco on our table waiting for us. I didn’t even think twice, I wasn’t even tempted, I sent them back. I wasnt confident enough toContinue reading “Day 67 – White lies”

Day 65 – Park Picnics

Yesterday I was so tired, I some how time travelled back to day 54. It was actually day 64, those 10 days make all the difference. Today BB and I have met another lovely mum and baby for a socially distanced park picnic. At first I was a little nervous due to the restrictions, however,Continue reading “Day 65 – Park Picnics”

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 59 – New Friends

Today we (and when I say we I mean me and BB), went to our first baby class since lock down. I’ve been so excited about getting out again and mixing with other mummys and babies. We get there in plenty of time and settle in on our mat next to (well 2 meters away)Continue reading “Day 59 – New Friends”

Day 56 – happiness

After a rough week, today I am so happy. I feel as if its like a brook of happiness bubbling up inside me. I had a beautiful morning swim, where the coldness of the water felt exhilarating. I drove across the countryside taking in the morning sun on the freshly harvested fields. I came homeContinue reading “Day 56 – happiness”

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”
