Checking in for 24. Spent most of yesterday being inert. Slept a lot. Did some household chores. A bit of exercise. Wished the cold weather would ease off a bit ! I have forgotten how taxing work can be. Overall, I remain very grateful to be here. To be alive and sober. To not give up.

Congrats to the milestoners. Kudos to you all. I often imagine that we can bring all our hope and strength to lift those who are suffering. Let there be no more suffering.

Another 24 hours of gratitude, compassion and sobrietypls. Its 10:29am here !

Thank you for the continued prayers for my mom.

My kids and I watched this really interesting thing on TV yesterday about how animals don't see the full range of colours like we do. Apparently they can't see red and green. After it finished, my youngest asked, "mummy, what do you think is a cat's favourite colour?" I thought about it for a while and based on what we'd just learned I said that I thought a cat's favourite colour is brown because it can see the colour brown and the mice it chases are brown and the tree trunks it climbs are brown.

My youngest replied, "wrong!! A cat's favourite colour is purrrrrrple!"

Outsmarted by a 6 year old

Prayers for your mum Delilah and congrats to all those celebrating milestones. 24 more hours please xxxx

Haha! Kenton you've got some smart kids there!!!!
Delilah Im so sorry your mum is going through this. So much for you all to cope with sweetheart ❤❤❤
24 more for me please. It's a relief that I'm feeling like being sober is just how it should be again. I dont miss that whole chaos of being ruled by wine. Planning it, buying it, hiding it, pretending I'm not drunk, unable to drive, not being dependable, fear of every ache or pain, anxiety, self loathing...........I could go on........ nope don't miss that at all!
4 more sleeps till my babies come home! Massive hug fest when they do!
Lots of love guys!

Jo, I kept meaning to message you to send my congrats to your daughter for her fabulous GCSE results. My eldest is only 11 (starts senior school in a couple of weeks - eek!!) so I'm not at the GCSE stage with mine yet. However I read in the papers last week that the way they marked this year's papers made it harder for the students to get top grades. So full respect to your daughter for her amazing results. You must be so proud and I bet you can't wait to give them both huge welcome home hugs. Not long now Jo xxxx
