St Swithin is still keeping me dry! And I will not drink despite my invite to a wine importer friend's birthday do. I shall stay long enough to be polite and make my excuses...

My liver is heaving a sigh of relief, and it hasn't finished breathing out yet.

Shelsey ... maybe cos the detox is over you feel like this, perhaps start a healthy plan or a new mini project to keep you motivated... and you dont ever need or want to be sad, you are a happy lovely person, you are never lonely, we are all here, and dont be scared we are all in this together holding cyber hands xxxx <:)>

... my wife stewed a lot of liver last night. So there's no need for me to do the same to myself today.
