And actually, Neil Diamond is some kind of awesome, so....



Ha. Well, you mentioned him....

(I just made Nick listen to a few songs from Hot August Night, what, it was a cool album...really... )

I am learning a lot about living in the moment, moving forward, and crafting a life that I can dream up as I go. I feel blessed.

I have had plenty of stumbles along the way. In the beginning what I wanted to hear more than anything was, "it gets better". I heard it here, and it is true. Hang in there, everyone. Never stop trying. <3
Hello darling girl and I missed this yesterday....... ♥♥♥♥

Just stopping by to say hi, and that I won't drink tonight.

I can't promise, though, that I won't eat more lemon biscotti with sweet sticky icing. Oh wait, I can promise that; I ate the last three at lunch.

Hope everyone's having a great Tuesday.

Last night I spent most of the meal eating alone as Mr P was chatting... then him going on how lovely the wine is. .... And when I asked for a fanta.... the waiter brought it and winked saying he'd put something special in it....Mr P was too busy chatting to get him to test it... so I had to have water😢😢😢 it looked a bit swirly at the bottom...xxx
Though I have had a BIG chat with Mr P this morning .... feeling a bit more positive.
Thanks everyone.
Good news on the pet front too xxx
