    Morena. Hey @janus2 nah I’m not going. Although as I sat to write to you I had a fleeting image of Seedy and I doing a roadie up the coast, in a convertible dressed like 1950’s movie stars. Christ knows where that came from…
    Friday funday . I try to make every day a fun day eh. I like to laugh a lot – i tried laughing yoga a few times,…[Read more]

    • Hey @Ro, I know this wasn’t directed at me but being a public forum, I’ll just answer. Ha! I tried laughing yoga a few times. It’s great with the right group of people. A bit uncomfortable for me because I only laugh heartily with people I’m comfortable around. But thanks for the reminder! HA HA HA HA HA, WHEW BOY, HEE HEE HEE, HO HO! 😜

    • I want laughing yoga!! Actually I love yoga, it makes me feel completely yummmmm. Laughing as well sounds perfect!!! Have a fab fun Friday @ro.

    • 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

    • Hi @ro no post from you could ever be boring as you suggested in an earlier conversation. In fact I am sure that I am not the only one here pleased to see your name pop up! Would love you to do the sports car thing and arrive at the meet up!

    • Are you totally sure no road trip? Even in a normal car, or plane? PLEEEAAASSEEE – you too @seedynomore, and how are you? It is lonely here without you, and a 1000 other old time lovelies who must be off busily living their happy sober lives. And then there are a few of us, clinging to the site… @Noelle, coming down? @Agent99? @Treehugger – get…[Read more]

    • Happy 631 days!
      I’ve tried yoga but I just can’t seem to get into it.
      I’m a cardio/ kickboxing kind of ga. To me that is relaxing!

    100 days to go until I’ve been off the jungle juice for two years! A lot has changed for me, and some other stuff hasn’t changed much at all. All in all I can’t regret stopping drinking. It has vastly improved my relationships with my partner ( who has also stopped drinking ) and my daughter.
    About to leave for work very shortly. Bit…[Read more]

    Hi @gojo nah you haven’t upset me at all! I’m sorry I’m not very good at replying sometimes. Don’t lose any sleep over me please! Often wonder how you are getting on with your face….better I hope. Have a great day 👍

    • Oh @ro you have made my day! We have been here on LS for ages and you matter to me. Have wondered how you are as you used to post more regularly. I know you had big sadness with your boy. Hope things are chugging along ok for your girl. And how is the es ape artist foxie?

    Hi there- you can get a really good Ginger beer syrup by Barkers that has fuck all sugar in it for the soda stream machine if you have one. My partner goes through about 2 bottles a week. Better than two bottles of wine a night any day πŸ™‚ p.s beer has heaps of sugar so I wouldn’t worry too much about it at this stage. Day 15 is AWESOME @a-better-person πŸ™‚

    Spent a few hours watching the street racing for the Burt Munro challenge yesterday. Got some sun. Was noisy and exciting.
    All in all a great week for Invercargill. Glorious weather. Even heard JAFAS talking about moving-get real! You stick to your island and we’ll stick to ours thank you very much!
    It’s looking like another…[Read more]

    • Have a gorgeous day @Ro you little winner xo

    • We’re all coming down there Ro….. like rats jumping off the sinking ship that is Auckland!!! haha ; )

    • Yeah, @Ro…we’re all moving in with you. Cool vibe with the Munro challenge ~ can imagine all sorts of interesting personalities there. Your recommendation to follow-up on Rational recovery really helped rattle my cage in the right direction, for sure. Thanx.

    • Hi @ro sounds like you are feeling Zen down there. I am doing a reverse move at the mo. Loving being at my fave beach north of Jaffaville. Enjoy your day xx

    • I love that book. And i raise my tonic to the Jaffas going back to their Island and staying there LOL.

    Hey @gottlob shit pissed at work is not the greatest look eh you duffer. Have you looked into Rational recovery? Regardless of method, you won’t start to feel better until you decide its time for you to start living instead of drinking your life away. I myself couldn’t stand NA apart from the people. Such a bummer cos it is great to actually have…[Read more]

    • How about CADS @gottlob ?

      Sorry to hear about the job … you don’t sound too bothered tho?

      • I’m bothered about the lack of income, but it would have driven me crazy. Should never really have taken the job, but it was the only one I’d been offered – it’s kind of hard looking for when when you’re nearly 65. I have been to CADS a number of times. It seemed helpful at the time, but then I slipped straight back into the booze. Sigh.

    • I do like the word “duffer”. It has a pleasantly old-fashioned ring to it. One of my friends is in the habit of referring to me as a “juggins”, which I also like.

    Hello and good evening.
    Just had a wee munch on some crackers with a most delicious pear paste and blue cheese washed down with a couple of pickled onions and a couple of olives. YUM! I was ravenous, so that will keep the worms at bay. The old man is out at Teretonga watching the bike racing and I’m not sure what we’re doing for dinner.…[Read more]

    • @Ro. You just rock rock.

    • I’m still shuddering at the picture you painted of drunk people attempting to unicycle next to plate glass windows. Thing is, I would have been one of those idiots back in the day for sure and I would probably have been really nasty to anyone telling me to cease and desist. Grateful for the graphic reminder. You do rock. Now I feel like cod. X

    • 625 days…oxoxox boom!
      And I shudder alongside Lucylocket thinking about all those people drinking at your staff party…..I pray I will never again be one of them, because that used to be me all the time. Down to comparing bruises and scrapes and blackout stories.
      Thanks for sharing…I need those reminders of what I really left behind.

    • you food sounds great, pear paste, pickled onions, yum. hope you had a great lie in.
