THURSDAY - DAILY CHAT - 12/06/2014

Good Beautiful Sunny Morning Everyone!!!!!!

And first of all my I send very special belated birthday wishes to the wonderful Briarwood! I hope you had an absolutely fantastic 1st smoke free birthday yesterday and I'm sorry I missed you but I was at the leaving do last night for the 2 girls who have left our team and it was more or less a straight after work thing, got home at around 9.30 and was fed and watered enough to then be nodding off on the sofa so didn't actually get online - so HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweetie and I hope you saw lots of monkeys in the zoo! :)

So anyway, I hope everyone is enjoying their smoke free journey - I'm still puffing away on the e-cig even though there is zero nicotine in it! I think it's acting like a placebo and keeps me sane! On a normal evening though I have noticed that I am not using it as much so I'm guessing my attachment to it will just fade away - plus I took a tip off EmJay the other day and started playing with a pen which was an excellent idea!!! :) :)

Okay must get off now, but hopefully I'll catch you all later

Have a wonderful smoke free day and stay positive! :D :D :D xx

  • Good Morning Chrissie and everyone :-)

    I tried to bob on last night but have limited wireless access and my iPad is seriously slow!

    I'm in London at the moment (Big waves to those I may pass ;-) ) and so won't be around until later, although I will try if we get a minute during lunch time.

    Happy belated birthday Briarwood, I hope you liked your badge ;-)

    Glad to hear your managing well on your e-cig Chrissie and that you ad a lovely night last night :-)

    Stay strong and stay positive everyone :-)

  • Yeah thanks Emjay, I love it, you're the best :) Don't work too hard :) x

  • Morning Chrissie Emjay and all

    You 2 are both so busy, hope the day goes well for you, not too stressful

    I'm sucking on my low nic ecig too Chrissie. Think it's the action that's a pacifier etc too. Got some funny looks this last week, think people who don't know Ecigs wonder what you're on!

    Beautiful day here too, 8-) and am so glad. :)

    Back from a lovely holiday, no smoking! Celebrated my 8 weeks quit whilst away :)

    It's funny how these landmarks are so important when quitting, helps keep me going, proud and pleased for every hour, day, week, month, and hopefully, one amazing day, year!, smoke free.

    Keep the faith all, and make it a great smoke free day :)

  • Hi Betts, a big congratulations coming to you with hugs as well for your 8 week quit and well done, I'm soooooh happy for ya :) glad you enjoyed your holiday as a non smoker, way to go girl :) and we missed ya too so glad your back :) x

  • Hi Betts and WOW fantastic - congratulations on achieving your 8 week quit - especially achieving it whilst you were on your jollies, that is so brilliant!!!

    We missed you so it's lovely to see you again but I really really hope you had a fandabidozy time, and tell me, did you notice if Cuba had changed very much - and did you get some serious salsa dancing in????

    Ok so my daughter and I are heading for the pub to enjoy the evening sunshine in the garden! Hopefully I'll catch up with you all later xxx :) :) :)

  • Thanks Chrissie, I am loving hearing you are going to spend some quality sunshinetime with your daughter in the garden:) isnt it a beeautiful day 8-) ?

    Cuba was fandabulous! It changes every time, so much since first visit 29 years ago!! Always beautiful, vibrant, sunny, rhythms of the music just great. Ahhhhh. It'll be a few years till next time, hope this wasn't the last!

    make sure you get a rucksack with everything your gonna need - hat/sunglasses/sun cream/bottle water/Scooby snacks/flask of tea/book and phone - then you wont have to keep going up and down those steps on your bum :D

  • Hi lovely Chrissie, hope your feeling a bit less work stressed ..... i'm delighted that your still nic free :D

    hope you had a lovely evening with Danielle and not too much red is a school nite :D :D I actually got my milky white legs out and sat in the garden this evening :)

  • Hey droopy!!! Too late, I'm a lost cause, however I had the bestest evening with Danielle and now we are settling down to watch the world cup - sadly I got Nigeria in the sweepstake - not sure I'm going to see a return on that investment!!!

    How are you honey? - it feels like we haven't had a really good chattet for ages - but please just blame Danielle and hopefully we will catch up again properly and soon! :) :) :) xxx

  • Im not in a sweepstake :( to be fair I'm only good at dogs.... :o

    I am however looking to watch as many of the games as I can, love the world cup but hate watching England as its sooooooo blooming stressful.... what excuses do you reckon were gonna get this year or am I being too sceptical ..... :( ;) :D

    OKAY of course were gonna do really welllllll and win the world cup..........YEAH!!! oops sorry think I may have a bit of sun stroke :D

  • droopy we are off to the pub on Saturday night to watch the england game! I just hope we walk home afterwards with a smile on our faces!!!

    I rarely watch a game these days from one year to the next - but it is the World Cup!!! COME ON NIGERIA!!!! ha ha ha :D :D xxx

  • :D :D :D just have loads of red milk and the result wont matter coz you wont remember it anyway...... :D

    Don't know where I'm watching it yet.... but whatever happens will have a few V&Ps :)

  • Droopy come to the pub with Danielle and I - girl power and all that!! :) :) :) - ps the pub is in Sheffield (do you have a passport?) :) :) xxx

  • That would be tremendobloomingfabulous.... I do have a passport (thankfully I just got mine in before the 30000 backlog!!! :D :D

  • Good evening Chrissie and of course Danielle toooo :) :) I hope you have a lovely evening at the pub :P :P :D :D Chrissie, I really admire you for achieving sooo much already, very nearly totally nic freeeeee :) I do bow down to you young Lady :) :) xx

  • Dearest Monky, I would love to bow down to you too, but I've had two (count them!) two glasses of wine and it has to be said I'm tiddly - so if I bowed down to you, I could quite possibly fall over!!!

    tee hee hee hee hee hee hee :D :D :D xxx

  • Hi tiddly Chrissie :) :) gosh your cheap to get tiddly, erm, mind you, it depends on the flippin size of the glasses ehhhhhh :o :D :D :D

    It sounds as if you really enjoyed the pub visit with Danielle :) :) xx

  • What sort of example is your daughter setting.... getting her mum tiddly indeed - it's shameful behaviour :D :D :D :D

  • I totally agree! Outrageous behaviour but so so so funny too! By the way, I'm the only tiddly one here!!! :D :D :D xx

  • I hope your near to the bathroom, just incase ehh :o :D :D

    Need to find some other substitute ;)

  • Hi Droopy :) :)

    I had a better day today thank you, just had the 1 lozz that was driving home, just cant seem to get rid of that one yet :o

  • Nope... just had a right old craving.... if it had continued then I would have dug the lozz out of the bottom of my bag ;o

    It is a bit bizarre coz actually feel a bit under the weather today, sore throat and generally feeling yuck :(

  • Yeah, maybe your coming down with something like summer flue :o but we aint had any summer yet eh :o :D :D

    Have you got any nightnurse you could take tonight or something :)
