Re: The Wobble Board

Morning Ella, that was excellent advice from DannyD. I can't really add anything useful because it has been said but just sleep it off today, rehydrate and recover from the 'poisoning' . It is just a blip <:)> much love .

No guilt, no sickness, no injuries, no stony silences from loved ones, no shame, no hiding, no fines etc, etc. Just freedom....... :D And Mooths, you will be fine today, just post as soon as you can about any feelings that may be triggered for you....
