      Popping in to say nighty night. Slow start but glued to I'm a Celebrity.

      I'm one of the 32 million affected by 02. Couldn't send important texts........like 'can you bring a loaf in' or 'do you know where I put my front door key? or pointless smilies to people I rarely speak to. The horror of it all.

      @satz123....you okay, love?

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Hi Ho everybody.
      I love the sound of that dawn hike there Rusty. I was just talking to another lady in our office here who is out the door at 5am every morning for a walk (sounds like she's from up round your way originally JC). Lovely healthy, wholesome looking specimen.
      It's funny isn't it? I've been having a good hard look at my day and decided that I operate better when I flip the day - get up early, go to bed early - especially for sobriety. I'd also gotten myself into some lazy habits including 'stay up late on computer' Anyway, my point is that it's amazing how when you start thinking about specific things like that, often something will pop up in your environment to help, as long as you keep your eyes and ears open.

      Arsey/Stirly I waited until a few of them had scoffed a brownie and then told the they were hash brownies. Makes for a creative arvo at work, I said.

      JC thanks for telling us about the homeless bloke made good. I just love hearing stories like that. I really hope the in laws bounce back. Why is it always the lovely folks that this happens to?

      Stirly I can almost 'see' your DIL when you talk about her. In my mind she looks like a few other little attention seeking control freak Bs that I know. Things have got to get better when you can just visit the son and kids on your own terms.

      Got to say that I am happy it's Friday here, but also just happy for the first time in a while. making a few positive plans for myself and just feeling a bit better.
      More later.

      Good morning Army!!!
      @byebyebridgetjones - that for me is the essence of my being sober. Finally being happy in what I do, where I live, happy being me, even when things are going badly around me. I am happy within myself and therefore I can cope. Your posts are very inspirational - I hope someone struggling or someone lurking reads them and realizes how much their life can change in just one month if they give up AL.

      And I love what you did with the brownies. I'm sure some people actually thought they got a little buzz from them. Many years ago when Mr. Stirly went to Canada along with 3 other lads, they gave a "joint" to one of the boys to smoke. According to him, he got high. Funny thing was, it was oregano, not pot!!
      @satz123 - what Jackie said - you okay?

      Off to get some bookkeeping done. It is the only part of my work I don't like so best get it over and done with with.

      Wishing you all a super-duper day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Morning,
      @byebyebridgetjones.............I've got to say when I stopped drinking the first time I felt happy was rather a surprise. Genuinely happy not the 'I'm fine' type happy that we plaster on.......takes a while to get used to and its just quite luvverly when it happens.
      Find out where your northern lass came from..........ask her if she knows what a Greggs cheese savoury stotty is and she's a genuine Geordie

      @stirly-girly.......I have to admit that the CBD oil I have would give me a little bit of a high..........nope just a sticky mouth...........mmmmmmm I've got some dried oregano in the cupboard.......shall I give that a go

      Right I've got my daft Chrimbo t-shirt on, Santa earrings and my marigolds and off to do a proper shift. I'm going to ask the chef how to make a perfect poached egg.........mine are either like bullets or that disgusting opaque runny. He's another thats come a long way from swigging the cooking wine to cheffing in the cafe. Another win for recovery.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.

      Hi Army - yep I'm fine JC & Stirls - just tired out. Worked a lot last week - 10 hour days and weekend.
      Now I have to get dressed & meet a potential son-in-law
      I'm jumping the gun - DD only going out with him a few months but is IN LOVE.

      YS drank again last night.... wasn't drunk but drank.
      Today I left my precious Rosie for 2 hours with him as I visited my mother and she was in the crate when I came home. She picks up & chews all sorts but this time it was a piece of GLASS. He must have broken a glass as I found more around.

      He's asleep up in the bedroom.
      I am FUMING.

      Now I have to put poor Rosie in the crate when I go out this eve for at least 3/4 hours - F*cker !!!
      That's all ...

      @JackieClaire - hope the day went well and that you enjoyed it. Great stories of recovery gladden my heart ..
      @rustop59 - I love the Outlet Village - but couldn't go this time of year - full of 'fairweather' - only- shop -at -Christmas -shoppers I like the place to myself. Who's going to win Jungle ? Harry or Emily for me...
      @byebyebridgetjones............. that happiness is lovely. You kinda check in with yourself & discover - Jesus nothing is bugging me - I'M CONTENTED. Great feeling.

      Evening.
      @satz123........not surprised you're fuming. I'll fume alongside. About the crating...........Jenny's beagle, Buddy, was crated as a young one. As long as its not used as a punishment. Until a couple of years ago Bess was put in the kitchen when we went out.
      She lived in rented property so when she went out popped him in mainly to stop him chewing all and sundry. Any damage would have been taken out of her hefty deposit.
      And if he chewed through a wire.......doesn't bear thinking about. He got to the stage he went in on his own when he heard keys being rattled.

      Work was all right. I was soooooooo nervous so I'll stick with all right. The two full-timers looked after me wonderfully. I'll get the hang of things. Totally different to anything I've ever done. Fecking great big dishwasher that takes only 3 minutes a load. Sounds like a tank approaching. My jolly little Chrimbo t-shirt is covered in splashes of hot chocolate, cappucino and bits of rocket.

      Evening,
      Sorry to hear about your Daddy-in-law @JackieClaire, maybe things will settle with the change in meds.. @stirly-girly, you couldnt make that up about your (ex) daughter-in-law. What a cow. Head up, keep smiling, your grandson loves his granny cos shes lovely and has no agenda.

      Rustop, that hike will be fantastic, what a way to start the new year.

      Arvo All,
      Quite like this concept of turning the day upside down again. Up at 6, off to walk the dog, can't quite believe what I've managed to get done with the day and looking forward to an early night as well.

      Poor Rosie. I tell you what, Satz its bad enough what I out up with here but if my animals were neglected in any way, that really would be it as far as I'm concerned. End of.

      SO JC is the Army barista now. Hope you make a mean cappuccino girl.
      If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?
