Tomorrow night though is going to be tough. Remember that dare I put out to you a couple of nights ago? Well a few of you lovely ladies did dare me and in the process raised another $100 for Mary and a night out sober for me for my Nephew Tom's 29th birthday at the pub. Thanks. I haven't decided yet weather to drink Virgin Marys or Nohitos', I'll have to have something special though if I'm having a booze free night. It is going to be tough watching the rest of the party getting stuck in to it, although it might be fun to watch all the frivolities and have a little giggle watching what other people get up to when they've had a few. At least I won't wake up with a sore head and a queasy tummy on Sunday morning. I might even go for a paddle on my SUP.
Overall, I feel pretty good considering, I thought I'd be climbing the walls and pulling my hair out by now and screaming at the kids and the husband but no I'm still pretty calm or as they say in French " Je suis calme" That's what I did this afternoon to take my mind of having a drink, I did my on line French lesson. I'm pretty crap at it but its fun and hopefully I will get better. Check out DuoLingo , its a great program, you can go on line or there is also an app for your phone, do it! You know you want to. Its great.
