    Re: September Army Thread

    Good morning Stirly and Molly. Thanks for starting us off Stirly, hard to believe it is September. Having no school going children now it does not have the same significance, rolled around without me realizing it.

    Enjoy your lunch JC. Nothing much planned here, going to relax and enjoy doing nothing.

    Hi Molls. Generally good! I got some pills on Monday to help me sleep - natural ingredients like valerian, lemon balm, melatonin, magnesium, etc. and not only do they help me sleep as in that I go back to sleep faster when I wake up but I noticed that they help me be less stressed and tense during the day. A big plus as far as I'm concerned.

    How are things in Molly-world? I imagine the grands are growing like weeds. How old are they now? Do you see them as much as you'd like to? Hope all is well there. And how is Joe doing with his continuing retirement? Has he adjusted, is he content? Just wondering. It took Mr. Stirly a while to get used to not working. Now I'd say he's content. Mind you, the fact that we separated 16 months ago helped in the long run. We can now be in each other's company and actually enjoy it!

    Off to hang the laundry but I'll be back. Heading out to the beach later today. It's a perfect day - sunny with a cool breeze!

    Hey Rusty - you snuck in there when I wasn't looking! I used to love September for the fact that the kids went back to school and things returned to their normal pace. Now I just love it because weather-wise, it is the best month here in Greece. But yes, hard to believe we've gotten through 2/3 of this year already!! That's what being sober does - days fly by!!!!

    Re: September Army Thread

    I was wondering why I don't get here & post first thing like I always did.

    Sad Sack Alert :
    A) When I got Rosie I joined a FB group for CAvachon owners - so by the time I get through all that I've run out of time & have to 'do' shit like go to work or just get up
    B) Also I discovered a silly word game on my phone & have been annoying everyone with it. God I'm really crap at it! Even lose against those whose first language is not English - a Greek girl I know from Assos and a Filipino nurse from work

    Apologies - cos it's just great to have you all back posting & lively conversation.

    off to Greece 18th September. Will be last year of 2 holidays - 'cos all the money has dried up. My favaourite saying of " spend it - you could be dead tomorrow" has come back to bite me in the arse - 'cos I'm still here & broke
    But hey it was good while it lasted !!

    Re: September Army Thread

    I nearly posted on the August thread....not very bright seeing as my job is largely accounts at night and I've just spent the whole night doing all the month-end stuff!!

    On the OU degree thing, @JackieClaire ... I'm not entering into this lightly....I really enjoy studying, an OU degree takes 6 years and if I don't start now I probably never will, and I'll already have my bus pass by the time I finish

    Also, although its planned as 6 years, you get a maximum of 16 years to complete it so there is no real pressure, and in Scotland the goverment pay uni fees, even for OU AND they give you a bursary which is enough to buy all the books and a brand new laptop...

    The new (opened 2012) Aberdeen uni library is open to all, and is a state of the art facility which I can see from my front room window, so it will get me out as well.

    So I have thought it through and I think it's a win win situation......

    Yesterday I did not drink. Today I know I will not drink... Tomorrow can go look after itself for now, I'll deal with that after midnight! ODAAT (One day at a time)

    Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. but it is, perhaps, nearing the end of the beginning of my fight back with Al (apologies to Sir Winston Churchill)
