Re: Crafty Corner

Oh why have I not spotted this thread before? I <3 crafts!! My favourite is crochet, which I learned to do 2 years ago & gives me a great deal of enjoyment. But I also did a bit of jewellery making last year for Xmas, and the year before that was oils & pretty bath salts with essential oils. We are ...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Rachel, well done on the 1,000 days, I think I was a week or so behind you? So maybe I've done mine too. I think of my BE support a lot. I couldn't have done my first year without you all. And the cautionary tales of people going back to moderate drinking only to be trapped again have kept me on the...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Hi everyone, just thought I would pop in and have a read. I've been having a few new alcohol thoughts lately and needed to set myself straight again! Just the "it's been almost 2 years and I don't even miss it so why shouldn't I have a drink if I feel like it?" kind of thought. Which I try to reply ...

Thanks Amarok! The little girl underneath is just as much of a monkey ;)

Learning to crochet has made being AF pretty easy this year so I'm very grateful :D

Pixie, happy birthday! \:)/ Pickles, I'm sorry your MRI did not go better :cry: And that your mum is not being a good grandmother OR mum <:)> Zoe I hope Mr J's chemo goes well & they can give him something to make him feel ok for Christmas day?

Re: The 2013 Challenge

Hello all, #54 (I think??) reporting in, still sober.

Please may I have #25 for 2014?

This year it has been lovely to be AF with not too many cravings. Can't wait to put a few more AF years behind me (::)

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Greetings from your MIA crocheter :D It's same old, same old around here. I've been busy entertaining Ms 4 during her 2 week 'school holiday' from kindergarten and thankfully she goes back tomorrow. Phew! I love her & she's very sweet, but I REALLY need some time to myself. We had a few playdates wi...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Welcome Chick Dip and Pickles, and congratulations!! I have been mia lately mainly due to health issues. I'm now going on 4 months with this same stupid sinus infection. Every time they try a new antibiotic one of my lovely girls brings home a new virus to share with me :? Starting to forget what be...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

DD take the (enforced) opportunity to learn to crochet! Soooo much faster and satisfying than knitting :) Pickles, not long now! The specialist said my eustation tube was blocked & badly swollen so he sucked all the yuck out & popped some local antibiotics in. Gave me a script for more antibiotics &...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Hi all Just thought I'd check in as I've been having a few complacent thoughts lately. I talked to my OH last night & made him promise to not let me drink this weekend. We are going to Melbourne tonight for a couple of nights & it'll be the first time being away from the girls for 2 nights (and in a...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Wow what a great dog you have DD ;)? Well trained! We have a collie who is scared of big cows. And strangers. At least he barks at the strangers. But when they get close he rolls on his back & pees on himself lol. I'm thinking of introducing a puppy to our family when I can convince the OH (well we ...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Hello all. I've been MIA for a bit now and just realised. I guess that's a good thing? I'm doing fine alcohol-wise. Booked an apartment deal today that came with a free bottle of bubbly & had no thoughts about drinking it or what I would do with it (hide it, give it away, take it back to reception e...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Hi Jake! Glad life is going well for you :) Rachel, I love Cologne especially the dom (church/cathedral). I was there the day the last pope was chosen (who was at the time Cardinal Ratzinsomething) & it was his local church I believe so they had a special service at mid-day. It was very special. I f...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

I remember hiding at my grandparents house when Dad would come to collect me. Must be a 'thing' ;) We have a motor boat that is just small enough to fit on a trailer & we launch it in the Pacific Ocean from a boat club about 15km away. My OH fishes off the boat, Ms 4 holds a rod for about 15 minutes...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

I know what you mean about the aunt/nephew relationship Jos, so much fun! My niece & nephew are 5 & 3 (so when they're all together, like last night for a sleepover, there is a 5, 4, 3 & 2 year old) and I have so much fun when they're over. My niece always hides when her dad comes to collect her. Sh...
