A whole month later …

After a very up and down few weeks, I'm back! The Isle of Man is an amazing place and I'm extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to live and work there over the last year. I'll always go back and the island will always have a special place in my heart as it's the... Continue Reading →

Feeling lonely

Although I do love my own company being on the island and not knowing many people has started to make me feel really lonely. I've been going back home nearly every weekend and craving time with my friends and family. This also became apparent when I started dating a couple of months ago. Although we... Continue Reading →

238 days richer

Before I start let's just take a moment to celebrate England's 6-1 victory today. Oh yes, what a match! If we keep playing like that we'll be doing alright. Maybe it was because I wore my lucky shirt today? So, back to me being rich. I'm not motivated by money and I find it quite... Continue Reading →

Obviously, I knew I'd feel better sober but the main thing I wanted in the early days was to stop feeling depressed,... Continue Reading →

It’s like Groundhog Day

It's Saturday afternoon and I'm in Costa again. Although many of you know I do love Costa it's getting a bit ridiculous now. It's a regular routine and each day is pretty much like the title of this post. Monday to Friday it's work, gym, tea, blogging or Netflix then bed. Saturday it's usually think... Continue Reading →

200 days sober!

When I first started out on my recovery journey I remember saying to my mum "how great would it be if I got to 100 days sober?". I'm absolutely thrilled and so proud of myself that I've managed to double that. I am 200 days SOBER I am 200 days HAPPIER I am 200 days... Continue Reading →
