3 weeks today, struggled to open a bottle and tears...
But yay!!! Andy Murray won Wimbledon! Therein lie the tears.
The only bottle I've struggled to open is my bottle of vegetable oil. You know the ones... a plastic tag that will pull all the way round then breaks off half way, then needs some knife work just to prize the lid off... Grrr.
I was feeling down a little earlier as there is a 'party' in the park and they had the tennis on big screen. My friend called to say am I coming? She's there with friends and their kids - it's Pimms o'clock. Battled with myself and said no. Battled with myself some more. No. I don't even like Pimms, but I like a beer tent when I see one.
Anyway, watched the match in peace. I have a chicken roasting in the oven, ready any minute. I've been together with my Mum, my Nan, my Aunt and my cousin this morning.
What's not to love about sobriety?
Other than stupid plastic tag bottles. Humph.

I really hate it when I have to spend a good deal of time figuring out how to get into a bottle of Olive oil. This happens. Its frustrating, and unnecessary. You have done some amazing work today. Keep on keeping on!

MyTimeNow, 3 weeks today? You are FANTASTIC. Congratulations.
Success is making yourself do the thing you need to do when you need to do it whether you like it or not.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

Yep keep on keeping on
My daughter is fast asleep on the sofa, I felt like she'd be missing out on seeing her friends and felt bad, so bought a DVD that she's been wanting for ages. A bit sneaky on my part as I wanted to watch the tennis in peace. But a win win I feel.

Hey, there isn't a nicer way to spend a Sunday than watching the first Brit to win Wimbledon for 77 years and know that you're being a great sober mum to your kids.
25th May 2012 was the last time I took a drink. I will never forget it. I don't EVER have to feel like that again.

hey, fellow 3-weeks-today buddy!!
glad you're having a good day x
it works if you work it...
I cannot change the past, but I can change my way of perceiving the past, and I do not have to perpetuate it as the reality of the present and the future.

Whats worse than wrestling with a plastic bottle of vegetable oil?
Smashing a huge glass bottle of olive oil on on the kitchen floor!
There are still skiddy bits 1 year later!

I don't suppose it's much consolation to say that I'm sure your floor is lovely and shiny... ? xx
I think DD has finally fallen asleep, I knew this bedtime would be a tough one as I 'planned' her an afternoon of DVD and sleep. Fingers crossed!
I'm struggling with the heat, so going to sit in the garden for a bit before bed.
ps I'm still finding the odd rabbit poo 2 years after my house rabbit died. Like Christmas tree needles, and now olive oil - you're never rid!

Ah thank you Jess, and likewise!
I came so close to saying eff it tonight though. DD being an absolute nightmare. I did the no means no thing, which meant a further half an hour of screaming. I was just thinking I can't do this I just want to shut off!!! Saw it through though a la Supernanny and she is asleep now, so I'm a lot calmer. Being absolutely skint helped to of course, the option was never available to me! Bed time soon
