Whoever positioned the taps wasn't thinking... Should have put them at one end! I prefer a bare skin man on a bearskin rug in front of my fire Budd!

Had a lovely weekend down in Herriot country, the only black clouds were hubby had a painful wrist that we think is from a trapped nerve in his elbow, and my dodgy tum. We moaned and laughed about our moaning as we always do. It reminds me that what we suffer can be 100 times worse or 100 times easier depending on our attitude to it. We refused to allow our physical limitations to prevent us from having a good time.

DD great to hear from you, if Marcher cannot post your letter in its entirety I'd love you to post it here some time. It sounds like you are working at getting the life you want and I am so happy for you that you were given the second chance to do just that. X

Hugs all x

Most definitely! If we can inspire just one person to become or stay sober, I'll be very happy.

It's still hard to believe that we've all been together for 3 years. I'm also happy that our Marcher's who drop in now and again, like DD and North, are doing so well. I don't know how we managed to keep together and do so well - chemistry? luck? karma? Whatever it is, I'm forever grateful.

Toots you just can't catch a break, lady! So you spent your birthday in the land of mrs. Wehav. Well, close. She's from Skipton. Happy belated birthday!!

Dd, good o hear from you, glad things are going well.

It's almost March!!!!!! I'm so excited for you guys!! Many of you will get your three years on!!!! I'm so proud of my marchers, whether it's a three year or 30 day milestone.

I'm still coughing, but seems like the new inhaler is helping. Nothing really to report on that.

Had a very bittersweet day on Saturday. I went to aa and got my 3 year chip, Yaaaay! Then after he meeting I checked my messages and my sponsee fired me. I won't get into why, it had nothing really to do with me, but it kinda sucked. I wish the person well and really hope they have a fruitful and fulfilling recovery. I really want folks to feel the magic of recovery that all of us deserve.

Anyway, I gotta get ready for a program. Hope everyone has a good day!

We, I can understand why that sucks. If it were me, I would feel like I had been rejected - even though we know that sometimes it simply isn't a good match at that point in time. Your heart is in the right place!

Hi, everybody! I have been reading back a bit and it is so good to see you all!

Running out of time--I came here to the library to look up figures for taxes. I really miss you all!

Hi Marchers

Just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS to all of us for three years of posting and supporting one another. Three years ago I was posting with a hangover and asking for help for the first time and all of you have helped me more than you can know. Three years sober!

Thank you Dee for being our moderator and your dedication to helping all the classes.

I hope some past Marchers will pop in from time-to-time this month to let us know how they are doing.

BIG LOVE to all Marchers, past and present.

Northlander

Good morning Marchers I'm running through the door to call out a hello and tell you that I'll post our March Class thread tonight. Thank you DD and Duff for your contributions!

At the moment our tribute is one big file so I'm going to cut it into a few posts so that it isn't a wall of text and it will be easier to read. There is -- of course -- some great stuff in the posts.

I've been having a fabulous time over the last few days. I had out of town friends (from Queensland) staying, a day off work yesterday with a lunch of six of us (all mods/admins Dee!) and have been having the best time. Today I am meant to have my head out of the clouds and be working but I dropped in while drinking my morning tea coffee.

Have a good day all.

Congratulations North on your Soberversary, I still have a couple of weeks to mine, but counting down...

Still not feeling good, blood results should be in soon,mthough I don't expect anything to show. It just means I can push for the next move to investigate.
