      @byebyebridgetjones......nope never a cockroach.........but after my first marriage ended, I had a slug invested rented abode.........I have never been happier.

      I am now an avid fan succulent and cactuses (cacti?). Fascinating little buggers.........They flower when you least expect them, need little care and are very good listeners I've dropped hints all over about books and buying me baby ones for Chrimbo.

      Right, I'm off to watch the last episode of the previous season of Vikings so I can start the new one tomorrow.

      Jeez, this place is quiet today. Are you all up to mischief?
      Off to Bedfordshire with me. See you all on the flip side.
      If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

      I think, like me, lots are probably having trouble logging in today Bridget
      Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
      Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
      Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

      Got a weird message about MWO not being safe. Got in eventually.

      1) See above
      2) Went back to bed as I was beyond tired and felt icky and sicky. Probably due to running around like blue arsed flies yesterday afternoon at the shops. We're lucky we've got a massive TXMaxx, Marks & Spencer, Boots, Poundland and various other retail outlets locally so much shopping was done. Or I could have caught a bug.

      Will not be going into town unless its to meet my pal for coffee or to walk through to get to work.

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Problem must be sorted again..
      Im the same @JackieClaire, will avoid the city unless I absolutely have to. I have only some of the xmas shopping done. I try not to talk about it as everyone around me seems to be done and dusted, the feckers! I like to live on the edge.

      Took this from the Sunday Shoutout. Can I be very nosy (I am very nosy) and ask what happened? Not so much the circumstances, but was it a 'fuck it' moment or were you gearing up to it for a while?
      Im just thinking that we can be 1 day or 10 years off the booze and it all comes down to acting on 1 thought. Or is it that simple?

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Evening everyone. Glad to be able to log on again. Sorry you are feeling poorly JC and sorry about the kitty Mary. Yea Bridget if you donít mind fill us in what led up to your relapse. You might already have mentioned it when you came back, apologies if you did. Well it was more rock and mountain climbing than hill walking this weekend, the hardest physical challenge I have ever done but the views were amazing and I survived to tell the tale. Just in from work so need to get some food and have a read back.

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Think I was just zorsted. Early night for me for a couple of days.
      Finally got a plasterer and a decorator. Doing nothing until the back end of January though.
      @IamMary..........gave in and got vouchers for my nieces and my sort of nephews and niece (they're my cousin's kids but we're closer than sisters). The S&H has always called her Auntie Cousin G. They'll all get a lottery ticket as well and must share half or I'll hunt them down.

      Trying to find a country cottage around my birthday next year..........unfortunately, its the Easter school holidays and the prices are horrendous. So March it will be.

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Evening all.

      Hope all are well in the barracks?
      Late check-in here. Had a day off today & managed to get to shopping centre for some therapy.... it worked - just to potter & have time on my own.

      All well chez Satz :
      1) Demented mother - not quite so demented. Her UTI's are caught early. She's as happy as Larry in there with her pals ; Violet & Lily - she is Rose - I kid you not. All flowers

      2) Alky (currently sober) son sidelined by Rosie and having to just get on with it - no-one cares to check up on him any more...

      3) Delicious Rosie - I swear I could eat her she's so cute. She looks at you with those eyes & you can't reprimand her for poo-ing - in the kitchen - AGAIN.
      I expect her to talk to me soon she's that clever.
      Mr S is still besotted : takes her for an hour walk every day.

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      I see La Rosie has landed on her paws in that house

      I got the warning message about logging into MWO as well JC, so that's weird. I hope the site is safe to use?

      Mary and Rustop, I got some devastating news about a family member in January. It is ongoing and very serious and of course totally out of my control. It is utterly consuming our lives. I completely lost it and drank just for the luxury of having a few hours not thinking about it. But it still didn't work and left me paralysed for any sort of action.
      It is the worst possible year to give up drinking, but also the best and only year. So here I am. We are never completely safe from relapse but we do get safer as we get more time between ourselves and our last drink. I had gotten to the stage where I never thought of drinking and could never see a relapse happening. That's how much I knew.
      If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

      @byebyebridgetjones that is the scariest post i've read for a while.
      My heart does out to you that it was so painful you went against all you know to be true about alcohol and leapt into the abyss ( too dramatic ?)

      You are an inspiration to us all .... those starting out and those of us who are complacently doddling along thinking "it couldn't happen to me" .....

      We cannot control what happens to others - so we must keep ourselves in a good place to be able to deal with it.
      Look after YOU down there first - and your beloved garden - the rest will fall into place
