    I've started taking magnesium. Partially because are in the press and I'm using them up! But also sleep. They do work.
    You could be right on that date Elsie. We were there in 2015 too and I stopped drinking as soon as we came back. I Was desperate at that point and couldn't handle the lack of opportunity to sneak drink with all family by my side constantly. All I wanted was to be was a normal drinker.
    They guys here showed me that that ship had sailed, but that not normal could be fabulous
    Your doing so well! Endorphins from exercise definitely helped me too.

    Molly 2.5 hours is a perfect distance. No unannounced callers but close enough to pop up and down.
    Fingers crossed for you Satz. What about a house swap for a few years! There must be loads of people who can't afford the bigger gaff, preferably ones that love DIY and renovations. That could be part of the contract

    Good to see you @brit. Any chance of tweaking those meds?

    I'll turn off the light.. before Alfie wakes us all up again.. x

    Morning,
    @lifechange............oh dear the pink clouds lifted. Spot on with the Thiamine,Satz also Vitamin C. B12.Folic Acid. Glutamine.Vitamin A.........you'll be rattling.

    Off to my wee craftclub so I'd better get dressed..............its all very casual but me sitting in me pyjamas pushes it a bit far. Perhaps I'll find out his week why the woman who's cutting shapes out.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Good morning Troopers from a warm Athens that's going to get warmer!! 31C at 11am - up to 35 by midday and high of 37 tomorrow. No prob for me - I love the heat.

    Jackie - don't you just love the new baby smell. You want to hold on to them for hours just watching their little faces and breathing in that scent...

    Elsie - what the others said about the vitamins. Magnesium helps calm you and also helps muscle cramping and spasms. I had terrible muscle cramping when I first stopped drinking. Also insomnia like never before - only slept a couple of hours a night. BUT...I was so happy to be finally sober that I just rode it out and eventually things evened out. Ups and downs are natural to everybody and when you've been numbing with AL for a long time, things seem more intense -when you stop even the blahs. You're doing great tho' - really well - because you are facing whatever happens and taking it in stride. Well done!!

    Satzy - hope all goes well. (said from the heart!) Glad to hear you had a party at your Mom's. Prolly right about Rosie - the smell of the meds. Doggies are so sensitive about those things.

    Mers - just a couple of weeks til Greece? The weather shouldn't be overly hot but you can never predict it well. We've had 10-day long heatwaves in June when the temps were 42 to 45 every day. Now that WAS hot!!!

    Mrs. A - please check in to let us know how you're doing.

    Tabbers - hope you're enjoying your garden and walks along the sea with your doggers!!

    Waves to Rusters and Molls!!

    All is well here but I gotta get back to work. Laters gaters!!
    For every 60 seconds that you are angry, you lose a minute of happiness.

    Good morning everyone

    Change of plan, bed not coming today so going to go west tomorrow. Doggies are very sensitive and probably smell things we can’t. Glad you got to celebrate your Mom’s birthday Satz. Great age. I still take loads of vitamins LC, swear by them for menopause symptoms too. Guess you would need to like the heat to live there all the time Stirly. Just had a lovely walk down by the river. Enjoy your craft morning JC.

    Waves to everyone else.

    Morning..yup forgot about all the vitamins and stuff...interesting about magnesium and leg cramps...doing fierce amount of heavy work ...digging and lifting etc. and have been getting leg cramps..must try it.
    B12 was my biggie...a ginormous (prescribed) dose for 6 months and it made a huge difference.

    Beautiful day down here but thankfully not in 30's or 40's...I'd never have a garden!!!
    Laters folks xx

    Morning all
    Jesus Stirls I'd be in a heap in that heat
    .

    And yes the muscle cramping is a curse - I get it in my calf but also in my toes & they twist at odd angles. If I use the magnesium spray at night I have no problem.

    Off to my wee craftclub so I'd better get dressed..............its all very casual but me sitting in me pyjamas pushes it a bit far.
    Ah sure feck it Jacks - there's fine line between 'jarmers and regular clothes these days. Pretend you're a hippy.

    Re: Army June 22

    hi Army,

    back in for a quick catch up before i hit the hay.. had a super relaxing afternoon, which included a long nap and Netflix! as you mentioned, Molly, it's difficult for me to concentrate on a book atm.. or for it to hold my interest..

    started with the magnesium and the last i had of a b complex.. am ordering more which shouldn't take long to arrive.. thanks so much for the reminder!! haven't taken supplements in ages.

    Mary, i think i remember reading that you also have teenagers? and tell me again where you're living.. i'm enjoying getting to know where you all are..

    Stirly, thanks for the motivational reminder.. i am super happy to have quit and will try to change my perspective a bit more the next time i feel down or tired.. gosh, if i think of how miserable i was just a couple short weeks ago.. now tired isn't nearly as beat, down isn't nearly as down, haven't had a single headache or urge to vomit, haven't felt gutted or ashamed, haven't let anyone down.. the list goes on..

    big hugs to all of you.. see you in the morning..xx
