4th May 2020, Monday
Up early, 7am. Some of the lockdown restrictions have been lifted today and i’m allowed out up to three times a day now! Off to the supermarket, only my second time out in the car in six weeks. Got everything on my list that I needed, including alcohol free beer! I knew they would have some there, OH obviously didn’t look very well last week. I also got Tahini Pie, a great treat that i’ve not had for weeks, it was fab with my coffee after i’d put the shopping away, still warm and sticky. Yum! Had too much alcohol been killing off my taste buds I wonder?
Off out for a walk. Looked like it would rain with dark clouds but I only felt three drops in the hour and a half I was out. Lunch. Sit in sun. Work on laptop. Usual stuff.
I’m currently reading the AA Big Book, more out of curiosity really as it’s been around since the 1930s though it has been revised periodically.
Had a bottle of San Miguel 0% alcohol at “beer” o’clock this evening. It was a bit strange tasting but beery enough with a handful of salted peanuts to nibble with it and it was long and cold which is the main thing that I was after. I know that AF beers and wines can be a trigger for some people but I don’t think that will be the case for me. We shall see. I never thought I’d hear myself say this but actually I think the large glass of orange juice, lemonade and ice I had later on tasted better.
A quick update about grandson – he’d put on 130g when he was checked at the hospital this morning so didn’t have to stay in! I’m so relieved and happy 😃
Meaningful May: Focus on what you can do rather than what you can’t do. I decided to be very gentle with myself today. I still feel very tired at times, no idea why. So I did some easy, no pressure, no stress, deadline free work today.
