My current view! Well it is Friday and I have been very good all week....I fooled myself with a non alcoholic wine not that you can call it wine in any shape or form! I have also been eating cauliflower by the bucket load. Tonight’s supper involved cauliflower mash on my shepherds pie, needless to say hubbies side will have real mash on it!
Busy week for us with lots of buying trips and more to come. Gathering lots of 1940s goodies for our upcoming fairs as well as stock for the shops. Painted a tall chest of drawers this morning before nipping out. Oh my this is so not a glamorous job please stop here if you’re squeamish......I was busy sweeping the drawers out and eurghhhh! Drawer number four was full of toe nails! Yuk and double yuk! On querying with hubby why someone would use drawer number four for this disgusting practice he reckoned it was because it was the right height! I then went on to find some chewing gum stuck under the ridge. When I realised all the revolting stuff I had just touched I did my little ‘this is nasty’ dance around the house along with lots of screeching and a huge spray of Flash bleach on my hands!
Ok now I’ve shared this horror story I’ve realised I genuinely need a real gin and tonic so I’m off Toodle Pip x #vintagedealer#vintage#nocarbs#healthyeating#alcoholfree#cauliflowermash#glamourouslife

I took responsibility for my actions which went beyond just saying 'sorry' but being extremely specific about what I'm apologizing for. Instead of simply uttering the word 'sorry' like I had been doing since childhood, l was faced with people who wanted me to get real about what I was actually apologetic about (this approach has taught me a lot)! I also had to get out of my own ass and realise that once damage is done and feelings (or egos) are hurt, it's not always that simple to roll over and pick up where things left off, I mean is it ever really?
Some of my biggest lessons come from those connections that had to be cut completely. I've learnt more about myself because of those people that wished me well but chose a life without me physically present in it, and vice versa. I now get why it's important to ask for forgiveness without the expectation of a complete do over and a high five to seal the deal.
When you start to make amends, do it because you truly want to right your wrongs but please don't be discouraged by those that would still prefer to keep their distance from you. Don't look at it as rejection. Healing on both sides takes place when the time is right, endings are just the beginning of abundant possibility!🤓💕
You're a champ if you've read all of this!🤣 Happy Fridaaaaaay!

When looking for hair products for your hair you should always try your best to find products that do not have these three things. Although it rare for a product to be absent of all three things, please try your absolute best to find a product that is at least absent of 2 out of 3! Keep your crown protected guys and gals!! #sulfatefree#parabenfree#alcoholfree#healthyhair#naturalhair
The Amazonian Forest. The birthplace of our Açai berries. Inspired by the vast vegetation of this beautiful place, we made it our mission to use natural berries and botanical to create a truly unique and sophisticated adult drink. Make any occasion feel special this weekend with a glass of Woodstar 🍷
There’s so much more to being sober then just not drinking. Recovery is a journey. It takes strength to face yourself. You have to be honest and brave enough to tackle the issues that caused you to drink. Do the inner work and do it with love. We are all human and humans make mistakes. Our mistakes do not define us but not facing our own crap will hinder our ability to really heal. Start healing today. You deserve everything recovery has to offer.
Cheers for the freakin‘ weekend 🍹💚
