Wow! I made it one whole month, 30 days and very happy about that too. This last week has sped by and, dare I say it, it has felt pretty easy. Oh, i’m pretty sure the wicked wine witch isn’t done with me yet but my strength against the old crone is growing immeasurably.
Another hot one today, it’s forecast to be 43C again. Woke feeling slightly dehydrated, it was so hot in the middle of the night and I woke at 5am and couldn’t get back to sleep.
The letter I wrote yesterday to my friend had a good response, she loved it and loved the idea of doing it and was going to do the same for a couple of friends. She also said “I’m just off to the Post Office with 23 packages of items that people have ordered via my Facebook page” I was so happy for her and hopefully my little bit of sharing her details had a small effect on that.
Being a landmark day today it was easy not to drink! OH wasn’t feeling well in the evening, he is still drinking quite heavily (500mls beer followed by three or four sizeable glasses of wine). His feet are swollen, he felt nauseous, said his vision was blurry and that he just generally felt like crap. He has also been suffering with sleep apnoea and waking up gasping for breath and I think his disturbed sleep is making him feel tired when he wakes in a morning. I personally think he is drinking too much, especially in this heat but he wouldn’t welcome my opinon so I keep quiet. He’s an adult and can make his own decisions.
