Day 275 – More navel gazing

These are 2 Facebook statuses from my account 7 years ago. The worst thing is, there were so many “hilarious” night outs and injuries, I cant even remember what night the status relates to. I wish I could tell 7 year ago self, that being sober is the best way I’d ever feel. That theseContinue reading “Day 275 – More navel gazing”

Day 268 – Resolutions

I felt so awful on Easter Sunday after 10 or so days of binge eating. My body felt lethargic, puffy, my joints felt achy, my face was bloated from consuming dairy. Whilst we had a lovely day as a family, easter egg hunting, cooking a roast, the kids picnicking and playing outside, I was soContinue reading “Day 268 – Resolutions”

Day 263 – Still Standing

I’m still standing (just). After vowing to never eat another bite of chocolate on saturday night, I’ve had some every day. Some days I’ve binged. Some days I’ve had just a little. I’ve decided to park it for now and enjoy Easter. I’ll let future me deal with this. It’s been warm and sunny hereContinue reading “Day 263 – Still Standing”

Day 257 – That uncomfortable feeling

I watched an episode of the amazing “This is us” earlier in the week and unexpectedly it brought up a whole host of uncomfortable feelings. They’ve stuck around with me all week, lurking in the shadows. So I thought I’d purge/share on here. The episode was in series 5, examining the link of baseball betweenContinue reading “Day 257 – That uncomfortable feeling”

Day 242 – 5am wake ups

Today my little munchable BB woke us all up at 5am. The whole house. So my hubster and I tagged teamed getting the children up and had our showers. By this point it was 6am. Between 6am and 8am before my step daughter left for school, I’d made a pasta bake for BBs lunch andContinue reading “Day 242 – 5am wake ups”

Day 220 – More reflections

This week is my birthday week and I feel really weird about it. Every 3 to 4 years I get in a funk about my birthday and this year seems to be one of them. (Once I ripped down all the banners over my desk at work, then was absolutely mortified the next day boutContinue reading “Day 220 – More reflections”

Day 210 – Lazy Sunday afternoons

Day 148 – Grey Foggy Day

Today we took a chilly stomp round a park with fog for company. I loved it. We (BB and I) were meant to have our first swimming lesson, but it was cancelled so we had a long bath full of toys. We played. She napped, I did some maths (brushing up for September). Now she’sContinue reading “Day 148 – Grey Foggy Day”

Day 145 -A new path

So I had to confirm with the university yesterday that I’d like to accept their place. I’ve decided after many years of longing, to go into teaching. Primary school teaching to be exact. It was something I really wanted to do when I was younger. I even got offered a place on a course andContinue reading “Day 145 -A new path”
