Am tempted to ‘cheat’ again by moving up prematurely - not by having a drink, I promise! - solidarity for the sake of company!

Thanks Cowboy, it means a lot. <:)>
Mooths, it’s not a cheat, you intend to go beyond anyway, we could of all started on that thread, besides, I’m used to your company now, it just wouldn’t be the same without you. <:)>
4 days for me to go now, it’s started feeling good, and I feel more settled now that I know, I’ve not reached the end of my road, so to speak. ;)?

Post whereever's helpful to you! Also, remember the Road to Abstinence - that's a busy thread and really supportive

Good morning all.
It’s the last day of my holiday today, I’ve walked so far my legs ache, I have finger painted, played in the park, flown a dragon kite, and have just enjoyed being with my family. Back to reality tomorrow. :( I never was materialistic, just spending time with the people (and dogs), I care about for a whole week has been lovely, and I’ve not once been tempted to drink, even when my two sons pulled out the alcohol and monopoly board, (which almost caused a sibling row), monopoly, not the alcohol, I had to step in and tell them if they couldn’t play without arguing, I’d put it away. :lol: They’re 39 and 37 years old. :lol2:
I’m going to have a last wander in the beautiful hills today before I head off, then stop off in Jedburgh on the way home, there is a fish & chip shop there that I love, the old guy who owns it makes his own tartar sauce, it’s the best I’ve ever had.
Have a lovely day. <:)>

Morning all.
Good to see you Wylass. <:)>
Mooths the fish & Chips were lovely, then I walked the dogs along the river, then back home to reality, was nice while it lasted.
I’m away to Glenrothes in December for a week, so will just look forward to that.
Have a lovely weekend. <:)>
