Another long lie today until 6.30am….. bliss…. ♥️ and I slept like a log. Always a good start to the day. Busy at work again! Don’t know where this week has gone but it’s flown by.
It’s my Friday again!!!!
So we decided to have a wee lunch out this today as Craig had a last minute free afternoon.
We went down to Gro Coffee in Irvine.
I was starving but I’m eating a lot less these days which is great. I don’t feel like I need it.
It was pouring with rain but the sea had a real turquoise look to it. It was lovely despite getting soaked taking the photo.
It’s lovely to see when the tide is in. It’s so much prettier. Irvine can be a little bit muddy sandbank when the tide is out.
So back to Gro…..I had the smoked salmon and prawn salad.
Now it was lovely but I could have made this at home…. Still….. it was a super healthy choice.
Craig had goats cheese with black pudding, thick cut ham and egg on bloomer.
This is where the healthiness ends….. wait till you see the cakes…. Strawberry tart for Craig and Caramac brownie for me!
I mean these look out of this world but I actually left a quarter of the brownie. 🤩😳😲
I mean seriously…. Who actually am I? What have I become? It was very sweet, fairly sickly, the Caramac chunks were to die for but other than that it was way too much!
I know…. Right?!?!? 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️😆 I had a lovely coconut milk latte with it.
We came home and popped into the village pub for a few drinks and caught up with village news. I’m still drinking the 0% Gordon’s Gin which is really lovely. Highly recommended for any drinkers who are driving on a night out!
That reminds me I just missed my 900 day anniversary!
I still can’t believe that I gave up the booze…. Honestly it was my go to, my answer to stress, work, holidays, you name it, I wanted to have wine to get through it, celebrate it.
As dramatic as it sounds, I know this is the right path for me. I don’t feel left out anymore. I don’t feel like the odd one out. I own my decision and it’s the choice I have made for my sanity. I wasn’t any worse than anyone else with the amount I drank, I just hated the way it affected me.
I’m facing up to everything without that crutch and I’m so proud to be coming out the other side still without it.
I got a lovely T-shirt from my mother-in-law today! Love it and it’s the perfect fit! Might wear it to everything for the next few weeks. 🤦🏻♀️🤣🤣
So it was lovely to be out together today. I did wear my new T-shirt……. It was a wee change. Almost normal.
A lazy night planned in front of the tv before training in the rain tomorrow morning.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
