41/100 on the mend

Day 41 and I have made it out of the bed for longer than just to give the dogs a 'pee and poo walk' poor lads. I am in better spirits than yesterday and have been letting Hong Kong slip back into my history quietly. Truthfully I was never going to be Tai Pan for goodness sake but the old melancholies had me convinced 'I could have been a contender

My life whilst a tad mediocre now is still way better than the fates of so many. I had a great adventure for a long time and realised myself I wanted a very settled and steady life for my daughter to grow up in. I have done that for her and hopefully the next adventures will be hers.

For now I will take the everyday ebb and flow until I reach some solid sober ground. I know I am not happy at work recently and don't have the numbing option to help me deal with it. I know in AA they advise people not to make any serious life changes for a year and I am going to give that consideration for a while, see if it is something I can do.

Pushing all that aside, I am ready to now sit down and launch myself into the new Game of Thrones, I recorded them all so feel a binge (a good kind) coming on. Hmmm?? Tea or Becks Blue?

    1. Just following up on the day before' post where I was bemoaning my time in HK and how if I had stayed there I would have been ruler of the world (or some such other deluded thinking) I lived in HK for 5 years, Australia for 1 year and USA for 10 years. I have 'settled down' but every year I get ants in my pants yo just up, up and away again. I will travel again, just not sure when.

    1. Considering I watched 5 series wined up, I had to download the series catch up so I knew what the hell was going on. Thankfully I started series 6 up to speed.did 3 episodes last night and opted for tea.

  3. All these comments about GoT are pushing me towards it. Can you believe I also never watched Downton Abbey? I hear the Oh, no's now...I really only watch tv in the late evening with hubby...needless to say we are watching Shark Week :-) That beats Naked and Afraid and Deadliest Catch let me tell you!!!

    1. I see that as no bad thing. My best friend hardly watches anything at all except stuff on Netflix so she doesn't get a lot of popular cultural references. Although I have watched and mourned the passing of Downton. It's so cheesy but I loved it.

  4. Glad to hear you're on the mend Ginger.. and feeling a bit more settled in spirit. Oh all the memories that seem to pop back up when we stop drinking - the nostalgia can be lovely, but more often painful. I'm immensely jealous that you have all of the GOT's. We have to wait till it comes out on dvd.. Argh! No spoilers please ;-) And no rushing to do too much this weekend - REST, my friend. Red xx

    1. No, no massive tasks this weekend. I have 2 small jobs to do and that's it. Unless it dries up enough for me to mow the bloody MEADOW that is growing front and back. I need a couple of sheep out there to keep it down. This is the problem with being single is you have to be all things to everyone. If you have any teenagers in your life ask them where you can find GOT online, they'll know.

  5. Im please you are feeling a little better and the emotions are settling down again.I think we may need mediocre for now, something stable for your daughter and your sobriety. Then off you can go again! I too need to re-watch GoT again as I was drinking through season 1-3 and honestly haven't got a clue!

  7. Glad your feeling better, enjoy game of thrones. Yes life can feel a tad boring at times, but I prefer that than drama and chaos :) PDTG x

    1. You are so right, so so right. The drama and chaos resumed today big style and I had a stressy work day.
