    oh no you poor thing! Seems to be the time of accidents what with my sons broken wrist and another friend’s boy breaking his arm in a fall. Hope you mend ok x

    Hey lovely friend! I just re-published your ‘Be Your Own Best Friend’ post from 2014 and featured it on the home page. It’s such a goodie. Lovely to hear from you xx

    • Good stuff Mrs D… you never know when you’re going to write a best-seller eh? XX.

    There is no better time to be sober than when you have to drive your 14-year-old across town at 6pm to get a cast on his newly broken wrist. Ouch! 3 hours at after hours surgery = double ouch! In a week when the house is full of workmen and it’s messy and stressy and I’ve got insomnia because my brain is extra busy and my kids have all got colds…[Read more]

    • The kitchen will be so worth all of this! The broken wrist is just the icing on the cake. How did that happen? Ouch!! Funny story-during our kitchen remodel all the cabinets were sitting on the floor waiting to be hung. Alone in the house, I heard a terrible noise coming from the non-existant kitchen. Investigating, I found our 13 pound…[Read more]

    • Wishing your son a speedy recovery. It is a Fucking Great Day to be sober 😁

    • Hell yeah!😁

    • ouch indeed, hope it all goes well. I recently got new appliciances and was surprised how very happy I was, like super happy to have such beautiful well working upgrades. Very grownup. @mrs-d

    • Yes it is!

    • Wow that’s a lot going on! Enjoy those cups of tea and moments of peace when they it appear ❤️

    • oh lordy that’s quite enough to be going on with. big hugs and lots of loves ๐Ÿ™‚

    great post!! what a sober rockstar you are xxx yes probably a good time to sell, who knows what’s happening with the housing market…

    • Sheesh! I’ve already changed my mind @Mrs-D!!! haha. And I’ve already rented it to a civil engineer and his civil engineer partner and they both work all day, they are from South America and they just want a home to call their own. My accountant said this morning I am mad to sell it, close to the city, high rental return, keep fixing it and keep…[Read more]

    Hi gang, quick question. Do any of you notice that after you’ve hit ‘load more’ at the bottom of the page you have trouble replying or commenting on updates? @morgan mentioned it as a problem and our techie is keen to know if it happens for anyone else because if it’s a confirmed issue he can report it to the theme developers. Thanks! x

    • I am finding intermittent issues of various kinds each time I come here. None of them seem to be consistent but the one you mentioned above, yes, I have had that before too. I am mostly finding that the site now functions very similar to how it did before. Especially the disappearing posts if you try to edit them in any way. For me, they never…[Read more]

    Up at sparrows fart today as we have workmen (women?) arriving at 8am to rip out our old falling-apart, leaking, broken kitchen. Very exciting! We are ‘camping’ over the other side of the family room with the old fridge stuck out in the middle and the table groaning with our plates, glasses, toaster, jug, microwave etc. 3-4 weeks with no kitchen…[Read more]

    • Thank you for that post.

    • @mrs-d congrats on your new kitchen, I’m sure it will be lovely when it’s finished. Everything is impacted by our sobriety for sure – how we interact with others, choices we make. So happy to be on this journey and grateful to you and LS site for all the support. Hang in there during the construction, it will be worth it. Hey, just like…[Read more]

    • Wow 3-4 weeks without a hitch will be tough! But it will be totally worth it I’m sure ❤️

    • Mornin’ @Mrs D. If you’ve got regular construction crews for the next month, I surely hope there’s some talent amongst the lot. Heh…get ready to start wearing your ‘good’ bathrobe in the mornings…bwahahhaaa. Heh…feel for ya (I had 3months of all that last winter ~ whew)

    • Yay lovely! Oooh a new kitchen will be heaven! The workman in the house time will fly by. Hate that too! Think tradesman in our homes always is a blah! Have a fab week @mrs-d . Looking forward to your next book. Yay! ❤️❤️🎉🎉🎉⭐️⭐️⭐️

    • A new kitchen sounds lovely @Mrs D not so much going without a kitchen for a month with a family. You have your plans in place to cope, you wonderful sober hero!

    ha ha I am also shocking at painting my toenails but someone once told me it doesn’t matter because it comes off your skin in a day or two but stays on the nails for a lot longer.. so now I don’t care if it’s messy – I know it’ll be perfect in a day or two! x

    Hey gang, lovely quiet house around me right now… ahhhh … all I can hear is the dog snoring and a plane flying overhead. I do love a quiet house (not often I get it with 3 sons). Have started working on my new book project and am fighting the urge to FREAK OUT at the enormity of it! But like with any new project I’m just going to go one step…[Read more]

    • How exciting!!! Enjoy the peace and quiet while you have it ❤️

    • Enjoy your peace – I am glued to your second book Mrs D going with in. Can ‘t wait for your next book. Chilly day here in NYC but the sun is out and I am AF.

    • So excited for your next book @mrs-d! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s to a sober weekend indeed!

    • Chip, chip, chip away. Like how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. I love your neighbors article. Please thank her! She puts into concise words while my mind blunders about trying to find words.

    • Peace. Organisation. What a lovely thing it can be. I am ready for work early which is shocking me very much – like, what have I forgotten??? As it could be 6 days, and a few (or none) until I can dash home to grab something, my organisationally challenged brain is scrambled ๐Ÿ™
      Hoping to swim tonight, though pretty nerve wracking as I have a wild…[Read more]

    I did a yoga class once and the teacher had us do the laughing thing for about ten minutes.. the first minute felt really weird and then you just start laughing because it’s rediculous and everyone is laughing and then the laughing becomes genuine and it felt great! x
