Today I turned 54 and I am 710 days alcohol free. Its amazing to think that I haven't had a drink for that long. I don't want one now. Theres absolutely nothing a glass of wine, pint of beer or double shot can do for me now that a cup of tea or fancy AF… Continue reading Day 710 : my birthday
Yesterday I made an effort to address my chocolate and sweets consumption which seems to have spiralled rapidly out of control.

It's all part and parcel of being AF! I have had 2 AF holidays. The first was a learning curve! Hated… Continue reading PM: Sunday – Day 458
