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 →

It still blows... Continue Reading →

As I mentioned in my last post the weather has been a massive trigger for me and it's still affecting... Continue Reading →

Being kind to myself

Yesterday I felt like the worst friend in the world. I should be on the boat to Liverpool now but I've decided not to make the journey for Graham's funeral on Monday. It definitely wasn't an easy decision to make. In fact I've been thinking about it all week and had several discussions with friends... Continue Reading →
