I decided if I'm not drinking for a month,
the last bottle should be a good one
This is my favorite red wine
and yes it was lovely with a steak meal.
Sammy came over to visit with his Lego, we helped to build boats. Su also popped in and she has confirmed how her wedding cards will look, it's just up to me to make them, I ordered all the supplies we require. After lunch we went out on the motorbike for a couple of hours, it was fun and not too cool. Next weekend we are away for 'Ride to the Wall', we have everything crossed it will be dry.
I have also finished my last holiday book, it was a good read, not great but good
Lots of things around me, plus this time of year has given plenty of thinking time, not sure if that is good.After speaking to my doctor I cut back on the tablets I have been taking since my cancer scare, I should finish them in December after 5 years, but for now I have cut back to just taking them three days each week, and will stop in late October. I am feeling so much better, I have read so many reports where the side effects for the tablets impact on so much of your health and I have heard of many women not lasting the five years. So I am walking more, hubby is now cooking all meals from scratch, no hidden added stuff, just good ingredients, no snacking (that's my downfall), I am already eating much more fruit and hitting my 5 a day target. My head is in the right place to loose some weight, I want to get my cycle out and get going on it, and I will soon be looking for yoga classes.
After checking our new finances (you know life after hubby's salary), things won't be too bad, we will have to think about any larger purchases, but because we have stopped all the unnecessary purchases, we should still live at a nice level. Our plans were right on, we have most of what we require for the next couple of years, then we will revisit everything, so I can retire. We still have a nice level of spending, and could trim things back if necessary, but not at this time.
I enjoy going to work myself, the office is fun, we all work hard, no ego's and my brain gets a work out
Hubby is enjoying his time at home, and is beginning to create a routine, I am certainly enjoying him being home with me, and not having him arriving home late after a long drive. So now I'm off, it's Chicken Byraini for tea, and some for lunch tomorrow, who knew life was going to be so good.
