    Hi @Mari135 I often have thoughts of “a drink would be nice, a long cool southern comfort with plenty of ice and diet coke” especially when people are here like yesterday ploughing into it, my daughter and her friends…….but that thought is immediately countered with another reinforcing thought ” but I am a greedy little pisshead when I drink…[Read more]

    Sounds like a great plan Tipsy. Maybe you could try out somewhere up near Big Sur or Sausalito (just to keep a bit North of Oregon coz the nutter will still be there) and I know it to be very beautiful up there. It has probably changed and become overpopulated now, it must be nigh on 35 years or so since I was there….sheesh….
    Sounds like you…[Read more]

  • Devastated to know of the massive terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka. The Guardian say there are 207 dead and that is expected to rise. So painful to try and understand the world we are living in, and how it has come to this.
    I am glad I am sober, and do not numb myself to the pain of such events of madness and cruelty.
    But I am having trouble…[Read more]

    When I gave up I continued the ritual but with an alcohol free drink. It sounds weird or stupid, but it worked for me. I would get a lovely glass with ice and lemon and a bit of mint and fresh lime and soda, and I’d get myself a few snacks cheese and olives and some crackers, and I’d take the time relax and enjoy before beginnig dinner. Often I’d…[Read more]

    Good morning brave hearts. I have a houseful here this morning. Two lovely young and very beautiful Japanese ladies, my booking.com guests. Then Georgia and Dane arrived a couple of days early, without the Staffys which is helpful while I’ve got guests. The girls leave this morning then I need to quickly get ready for a new lot this afternoon.…[Read more]

    Good evening Tribe. Hope all the Kiwi’s are watching Aroha Nui. For those of you overseas it is a massive concert in solidarity and tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack on our city. Aroha Nui means much love. Live coverage on channel 3, really good.

    Worked for me @Annie and the best decision of my life xx

  • Prudence posted a new activity comment 6 days, 17 hours ago

    You just haven’t decided yet @Davidfs and once you do it will be much easier, the angst of will I or won’t I will disappear because your decision will be not negotiable. That fact will give you strength, and you will just do it, just like me, hehe x

    The restoration of your beautuful village will be a sight to behold as it re-claims itself after the fires @Ellisou and it will restore the faith of many souls as the beauty returns. Lots of love back to, I often think of you, I will come and see you one day xoxo

    • That would be wonderful @prudence and bring @Ro and @Janus2 with you Janus needs to learn some afrikaans and xhosa swear words 😉
      It truly is a very beautiful warm hearted country with such incredible diversity you need at least 4 weeks just to get a taste of it all.
      How lovely it would be to meet 💜

    @JS123 it is a song from the 70’s by and band called Max Merrit and the Meteors but I don’t know the name of the song. Tried to google it for you but haven’t found it. They had another lyric in another song I loved too. Something about “the dust of the legacy you left behind” it was beautiful, about the ending of a relationship. Just little…[Read more]

    I reckon that’s the way too @Liberty, just pick a spot and plant yourself. And bloom. Love it. The Coromandel is very beautiful too, but maybe there is a wee Southerner in you……xoxo

  • Prudence posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    I hope you will surprise yourself @Liberty and I believe it is always worth taking a chance. Even if that chance does not bring the exact desired outcome, it does bring change and growth and stimulation and something new and real.
    I guess moving here was an easy decision for me coz it’s an hour from Christchurch and I inherited the land and I had…[Read more]

    • I love that value of yours @prudence, it’s deeply respectful.
      Just Mum; she lives near my sis on the Kapiti coast. Nothing to inherit and that’s ok, I didn’t expect it.
      I thought I might like it round that area, lots of people do, but I don’t feel a connection there at all.

    I agree @JM that when we are being our best selves better things happen for us, and yes, also we trust outselves more xox

    @AprilsFool I am known here at LS for calling it a decision, because I believe if you don’t make a decision you haven’t really decided to give it up and will end up with a series of day ones. I am like you in that once I decided to give up it became Not Negotiable so when big cravings or feelings of booze nostalgia or any sort of a tug at my…[Read more]
