Corner shop/milk

For those who know the corner shop is ( and I know as I have counted the steps)  86 steps, in the first few days of my quit those steps would of been soooo very easy to take,  one must admit  at times I did for what ever reason set off, cash in hand those nicotine stick calling me, but no by the time that shop bell rung ( the gent came down stairs to serve). the  urge had gone, what a blessing to me, that said I came out with items I would never ever have normally bought, jelly beans, corn flour, not to mention Ajax, as for me I would have felt so very uncomfortable not purchasing any item.  For to day I I took my 86 steps, I knew what indeed I was buying, four pints of milk. Now that's a huge improvement

That shop is gaining legendary status Tracey! You're going to have to take a picture of it and put it on one of your posts.

Glad to hear that it's serving its purpose for groceries and it's getting easier for you to go there. You've travelled a long way in those 86 steps.

yes, was certainly a pressure for a while, I secretly think it's a cover for something else, as new staff every two weeks, it's most interesting,
