Yes! It finally came - my high from being free from the thesis!! Yes! I've still got to pick it up from the binders in a day or two and courier it to the University to be marked but it is gone from my computer. No more editing! No more writing! No more angst! Done!!
And yes, I do feel great! Happy and free! So so so so so pleased to have it out of my head (mostly).
Today I made pumpkin and parsnip soup (with ginger and coconut milk) and a delicious spicy apple cake.
I took my Little Guy out this morning and we just hung out at the museum and it just felt different. I felt relaxed.
Went to the library while he was at kindy and got myself some big fat novels! Thanks for the recommendations everyone. Got a Sheila O'Flanagan, a Nicole Krauss and "Major Pettigrew's Last Stand".
Have just done a fashion show for Mr D and finalised my outfit for Wedding No. 3 on Friday night. We are traveling on a plane to get to this wedding and will be child free for 24 hours - fun! Can't decide whether to sneak a Red Bull into my handbag for the dinner. I've figured out that one energy drink gives me a good lift to see me through the night (this is wedding no. 3 of the summer but my 6th wedding since being sober so I'm getting good at it now). Then again I could just have whatever non-alcoholic drinks they are offering and grab a coffee as soon as the hot drinks come out.
I can't wait - it's going to be a super fun wedding with some old friends there, some new friends and some family. Weddings are great I reckon. Everyone gets glammed up and has a fun energy about them. Can't wait.
Love, Mrs D xxx
