Evening all (or morning to most of y'all). Welcome back Ditzy! Glad you're hanging in there Holds.

It's pretty quiet in my neighborhood when college kids aren't partying. Tonight I hear a couple of barred owls calling softly to one another high up in the oak trees. Even when they go totally berserk their mating calls are much more pleasant to listen to than those of wasted 20 year olds.

Oh gorgeous. I imagine they are much more pleasant too, Upwards :-)

Toki - yes. I'm thinking that's some seriously classy use of the word 'kip'. Let's see what our expert Scouse has to say about it :-)

Toki, TS - That's the perfect usage! :-)

Off to work soon, Thursday is a long one and I'll be glad to see the back of it.

Feeling refreshed after another decent night's kip, though :-)

Best wishes for a good day to you all!

DD - were all behind you. I was just thinking about you the other day actually. We're all super glad you're back.


Another day, another dollar here. I'm loaded with man flu but mentally I'm feeling good.

Work is utter chaos at the moment. Huge changes are afoot, in a schadenfreude way I'm kinda glad because it's not just me. Everyone feels the same because everything is up in the air.

On a brighter note - I've got myself an interview on Monday so I'm going to focus my efforts on preparing for that so I can be St my best, brightest, sober self.

Thank heavens tomorrow is Friday! First full week back of my phased return and I am exhausted.

A very good day today. It's so exciting and hopeful to feel my ambition and creativity coming back. I'd forgotten entirely that I used to be quite the hustler. The last couple years have just been slow like molasses, in my mind and in my actions (although also the opposite... ridiculously fast in terms of time passing. It's amazing how much time I have to play with when I'm actually present).

I hope you get a more permanent position BBB. That added stress and insecurity must be a bad feeling everyday. Glad you will survive your first week back. Did you ever join a cycling club?

Fantail I am happy you are checking in with us. Time does goes much slower sober which is a good thing. It good to embrace and enjoy it. Keep hustling lol

Congrats on 60 days key!!

I too had a great kip last night. Probably botched that one. Glad your going strong cbf and tooshabby.

Back to work for me on a Friday. I have training to complet. It will be pretty cake for 2 weeks so i am going to enjoy it.

Have a great and sober friday!!

Congrats keyofC, we're sobriety twins so I'm at 60 too!

An up and down week emotionally but I've been getting a lot more exercise which helps immensely. I've rediscovered the comfort of going to group workout classes. It's another way to get an hour of group interaction that has a positive focus, but it's a lot sweatier than AA
Have a great weekend everybody!!

Thanks everybody..I'm feeling pretty pumped! (I am a bit much for some people to swallow with my upbeat nature so I apologize if I offend anyone or make you sigh with disgust! Lol)

Congrats Up!!
We can choose to be positive or negative. I know i get stuck into a negative downward spiral thats feels better feeding on negative energy. However it just makes me more negative and destructive.

I love your positive vibes. Keep em coming

Congrats on 60 days Key of,C you are doing brilliantly!

Letitgo - about the cycling club - I did find one, but it's a bit far from me. I'm hoping to move back to the city in the not too distant future and will have a lot more options then. I'm cycling with my dad and his buddy atm though and enjoying it alot

Finished work - time to forget about the bloody place for the weekend! At least I have an interview on Monday for another perm position. Hopefully I'll nail it
