It's Sunday morning and I'm about to make pancakes! Sorry to gloat but today I am just so happy to be sober!!!
It's a crazy busy social weekend and I've got my kick-ass sober attitude embracing me right through. This the attitude that refuses to give alcohol all the power to make events fun. Go ahead and drink if you want ... but for those of us who have taken it away because we can't moderate … I believe we should just forge ahead with the parties not caring that our glasses contain no brain bending liquids.
On Friday night Mr D and I hosted a dinner party. It was so fun planning the menu! Four courses of deliciousness. It was my sisters birthday and I decided we needed to kick-start the night with cocktails so off to the bottle shop I went and purchased a small amount of white rum for mojitos. It felt so treaty and fun getting the cocktail shaker out and of course mine was a virgin. Didn't care.
I had a great, fun, chatty night and felt good right through to the last course (honey poached peaches served in dainty tea-cups) and final hugs goodbye. Filled the dishwasher before falling into bed and completing all my moves on Words With Friends before sleeping soundly all night. Whoop whoop sober glory!!!!!!
My 3 year old nephew is staying for the weekend and Mr D had to get up and travel away for work so it was just me and four little boys all day yesterday until the BABYSITTER arrived and I got dressed up to go out to a RESTAURANT!! Sorry for the use of caps but I'm just so impressed with myself being so grown up and glamorous (ha ha).
Wore a fun fringed floral kimono top and drove myself to a new, trendy restaurant to join a huge group celebrating a dear friend's 40th. I was late arriving but some friends had saved me a seat and from the moment I rocked in it was lovely, chatty evening in a busy, buzzing environment.
Everyone at the table was ordering wines by the glass.. another round… another round… but I just had a soda water with lime and then a herbal tea which arrived in the cutest vintage tea pot with a matching cup and saucer. That really made my night. Have I mentioned before how much I love teacups? I love teacups.
Dropped a friend off, drove home to pay the babysitter, checked the kids, took off my makeup, put on night cream (I never do that), slept soundly all night. No bursting bladder, no sick guts, no headache.
And now it's Sunday morning, the sun is shining, my nephew has just come over for a cuddle, I'm about to make pancakes and spend the day taking kids to birthday parties then going to friends house for a BBQ.
Like I said at the top … sorry to gloat .. but seriously folks… who needs wine. WHO NEEDS WINE? #whoneedswine?
I ask you. Who needs wine?
Love, Mrs D xxx
