That's great to hear, Sunshine.

Hope your workday goes well, Julia! I'll bet tonight you'll get a lot of sleep!

Well done on those bills Sunshine.

It is rather a nice day here. In a little while I am off to see a film called The Limehouse Golem, based on a book called Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem by Peter Ackroyd which in turn was inspired by a true story, the Ratcliff Highway murders, a sort of Jack The Ripper prequel. The action all takes place quite close to me. Bill Nighy stars among others.

I woke up at 10:30 this morning and have spent the time cleaning.

I plan to spend the afternoon and evening working on a craft project: I've got to crank and get it done by Sept 13 so I can get a discount on the framing.

I'll have to put school off for a couple of weeks. I'm reviewing to stay fresh for the new class.

Cleaning? What's that? Yuck.

I went to a big box fabric store yesterday and bought some stuff for some fabric projects. The county fair got my creative side working.

Maybe I'll go to the fair again. Is three times too many? I say no.

Limehouse Golem was excellent! I cannot say much without giving away plot spoilers but I hope it gets released overseas too.

Sunshine, a new stage version of Young Frankenstein is appearing in London soon.

Got a solid night's sleep last night....thank goodness! Having some coffee before getting ready for work. I'm scheduled to be there tomorrow too ~ holidays usually mean I'm off from my full time job but working the weekend job....people say "I don't know how you do it" and I always reply "It keeps me outta trouble!"

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend

Ok I better own up I feel gloomy today. AV is active for a change, I won't be drinking, I know better than that.

I spent three years restoring a pretty but obscure Lancia which I sold to make sure I would have a decent pension. Is there such a thing as sellers remorse?

That was a real labor of love and a job masterfully done. I can imagine how sad you must be that it's gone.

HI Sao~ It's o.k. to feel gloomy. And that pesky AV... wish it didn't exist.

Reached 60 day mark today. My major goal is 90 days so I can assess my situation. If I can make it 90 days then I can really make that long term permanent decision that it's just not an option to drink again. Just giving myself a short term goal like that at first to make it realistic for me. Haven't make it to 60 days in a long time.

Sunday afternoon to celebrate my nephews 20th birthday. Have to be around active drinking family members. I'm bringing the cake and ribs so I have to go. Will just eat and run as soon as I can.

mmmm, Cake and ribs. I'm in.

It's Sunday, I'm listening to Praise and Worship Pandora, fixing steak and omelet and hash browns and contemplating how all this big Universe came to be.

Pretty heady stuff on one cup of coffee.

No drinking for me. Not in 90 days, not in 290. Done and done.

Hey Sao ,
gets like that in september in the UK . do something comforting for yourself .
I'm making thick skin on oven chips

6 years since my nan died & 6 years sober today . bitter sweet .

I've come a decent distance, there is more to go and more work to be done .

The pension thing is sensible Sao but also it's important to practice self care and nurture yourself today , part of getting sober meant i had to give up on driving myself quite so hard ..

take care , m

Hope the blues have passed Sao.....
Strange weekend here, one minute feeling strong, the next filled with feelings of doom. But no drinking so thats good enough for now. Sunday evenings used to be a bad time for me. I would be filled with anxiety following a binge on Friday and Saturday, trying to get it out of my system before work on Monday. Tossing and turning all night, sweating, struggling to breath, feeling utterly overwhelmed. I am so glad not to feel like that tonight.
