Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Dear SheffieldJane, as promised! Here is a photo of me indulging in bread, pasta, red wine and just a few hours before chocolate, red wine, more chocolate... Yes, I will pay tomorrow, but sooo worth it! ❤️ Xxxxx

**************************************************

Ahhhh, feels like the "good" old days when I was on 80 mg! It's 1:55 am and I'm wide awake! Hmmmm, I guess sometimes too much wine has the opposite effect of what you want it to have! 🍷😳. Especially laying next to Snory Mc Snoreface..... 😫

*****************************************************

3:09 am 😳

I was awake at 3.09 too. In fact I don’t think I had any R.E.M. sleep at all. For no logical reason at all. Was falling asleep in front of a film, went to bed and lay there for hours, eyes glittering in the dark, telling myself kind things to drown out the snarky voice. 😞

You however, need to sparkle for some of today! The party must go on! 🎉🛍💃🏽

Belated Birthday wishes for yesterday Melisa

Hope you don't suffer to much today

I am trying to muster some energy to do some housework today but not getting far.

Trying to do what I can to control blood pressure

1 drinking water means for me more fluid more weight gain

2 Stop smoking done that 14 years ago

3 Stop Alcohol well I don't really drink

4 Lower salt, never use it in cooking and prepare all meals from fresh

5 Reduce stress ,Deep Breathing just sends me to sleep .

6 More exercise that's a laugh, Walked more yesterday so stiffer today

7 Reduce Carbs ,Cant eat bread really makes me feel physically ill

Appears all I can do is except PMR is still around after 19 months

But it does give me a excuse to say no to people ,to take time for myself and for the first time in my life to be selfish and put myself first.

I am most likely to miss it when it goes

But I will take it to Disney Paris in October and give it a holiday and hope for the best .

Have a great weekend

Me time for another coffee

A GIANT belated 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' Melissa - we have been away from screens working in our orchard see I see I have missed 'timely' salutations BUT it is great to see you 'indulged' yourself - I DID on my last BD - and IT IS 'worth it' - a great reminder we can 'party' sometimes and all the fun is FAR from over yet !!! As a cake 'addict' (always but never quite 'recovering') i adore birthdays as they provide the maximum of 'excuses' and je ne regrette rien - and all that !!!

I see you have lots and lots of responses and good wishes from everyone here and I will enjoy reading those too.

Lots of Love from us and we hope the next year is filled with the kinds of experiences you would like most for yourself.

Della and Ruth

Just love your picture, you look one happy lady and it’s a bonus if you didn’t suffer the day after.

I’ve just had my weekly treat, an ice cream cone. It was heaven lol.
