I think it's really funny that every time I come to this blog site (which is every day) I check my stats. I had two hits in the first two days! Who were these people I wondered. So exciting! Someone in South Africa read my heartfelt blog about attempting to give up alcohol! And someone in Brazil! Then a few days later two more hits, I now had four! Four hits! (One was from New Zealand, that was probably me checking myself out).
But then, four hits stayed. Four hits. Four hits. Now those four hits are so long ago they've travelled off the graph and it now says "no stats please check back later". HA!
So, enigmatic Mrs D. This blog is just going to be exactly what you intended which is a diary to yourself that happens to be in cyberspace rather than in a notebook in the bedside drawer.
Had some tears yesterday afternoon with Mr D and confessed I felt 'raw'. Tried to explain to him what I meant, that deciding to remove alcohol from my life has left me feeling rather stripped back. That instead of spending so much time under the influence of alcohol I now have a brain that is always sober and that is confronting. He understands and is so supportive. He will be very proud and impressed when (not if) I pull this off.
Out for an early fish n chips dinner at some neighbourhood friends last night, Mr D had a few red wines, the other bloke is a teetotaler due to health issues so he and I had a couple of lime juices together. His partner had one glass of wine, the demon is definitely not in her.
So here I am, Saturday morning no hangover! Only four hits ever on my blog! It's all good...
Love, Mrs D xxx
