Update On My Alcohol Slip
It has been tough having a slip with alcohol after 14 years in recovery. Although I’m actually grateful for my slip. It made me realize and come to terms with how hard things have been and that I need to make some big changes to ensure that my mental health is in a good place. It’s not the slip I’m focusing on, but what went wrong and where I go to from here, it’s what I do with it.
I’ve been going to AA meetings, seeing my therapist, and doing the next right thing.
Mid-term Break – Off To The Farm
It feels like the kids have only just gone back to school and they are on a 5 days mid-term break. Honestly though I needed this break. My kids and I are going to spend it at my parent’s farm in Swellendam and I am going to be following my therapist’s advice. I need to rest, nurture my soul and spend time with family.
The best place I can be right now is with my parents.
I’m so over the moon with my son’s enthusiasm and progress with being in the school chess team. Last weekend my son’s team took the gold medal in the West Coast Tops Schools chess tournament and they are now through to the Western Cape tournament. This will mean many more weekends traveling to tournaments and as I understand it these tournaments will run for two days on weekends. It is going to be fun, but also tiring and expensive to travel.
I wish you all a fantastic weekend and will catch up with you next week!
