Morning rainy Wednesday.
Thank you all who popped in on Sunday the afternoon was swell.
Could have been warmer but it didn't stop the laughter.
I'm ok as hope all on here are too and no one is be too tested with lockdown. Etc.
Rainy here and I am going to take a stroll to our local indoor Market. Nowt lavish but I do like to support and the veggies are good.
Gambling ads have made a come back and as much as I say they aggravate they really are often. Aggravate not so much me but I feel for the knowledge of what it can do and I know lockdown will draw people for the thrill of the chase.
Managing a bit of flow running and chat. Which benefits my head so much. And am eating more sensibly again. Oh boy food is so comforting when mind and body are I. A strange place like the first few weeks of lockdown.
Anyway till laters
Take care boo 😘😘😘
Not written since last week but then not a lot going on either.
Life is, settled at the mo. Lockdown easing although I'm not rushing back into it just yet.
Out for a run with the girls soon. All remit of distancing. Taking flask. Picnic table chair for post run chat.
Work is as busy as ever. But it all keeps me boredom at bay.
I've managed to shift a couple of lockdown excess pounds. My own own bad habits of eating during initial anxiety of lockdown. Still about 3 to shift... But food is so comforting at these times.
I've got a book on the go. A jigsaw to start. And Im currently getting printed off my photos on phone and putting them in an album. I've collages many therefore less to print.
Weather here letting some sun creep in.. Would be good as I fancy a nice long walk tomorrow.
Anyway all for now.
Take care all

Good Morning Boo,
Thank you for the message you posted on my diary.
I’m happy to read that you’re keeping active and busy. I think that is the key during these difficult times. Your balance sounds great - running/walking alone or with friends, books and jigsaw for quiet time and being out at work a few days per week makes for a perfect balance.
You have done such an amazing job in dealing with your recovery from gambling.
I continue to look forward to life returning to to way it was pre-Covid. I have concern regarding how long this will take although we’ve all come such a long way and things are changing every few weeks now.
I need some sun for my grass. I’ve done a lot of work in the garden. I’m out there watering for about 45 minutes every night which I find quite therapeutic. Now I just need some sunshine and heat.
Have a nice day.
Morning sun at last.
Not had a bad week all in all.
Went a walk to see my sister the other day and passed a little town amusement arcade casino. Sort of held my breath as I walked past as it was open and I didn't expect that. Couple of folks stood outside. It didn't hamper me in any way more a sinking feeling thst people would be going in lured by this horrible attraction. Enchanted by the thoughts of winning. Still that's beyond my control.
So I've ran and walked this week. I've entered the great North run virtual race. 40 runs walks up to 13th September. Donation to covid and a medal Sent. I'm enjoying it too as I won't actually be taking part in actual event which is next year now. Also doing other virtual runs locally. Time my runs. Download and send to race organiser and certificate and medal again sent. Also got book on the go. Jigsaw as always and still trying to get rid of last 2lbs excess lockdown blubber.
Went out yesterday.. Yippee.. 1st outing proper. Pub lunch. Hubby daughter self. Very nice too. Just to our local..
Anyways need to meet a run buddy soon.
Stay safe all
Had a lapse of days writing. Work etc been busy. Ive been ok.
Tnings getting more normalised now. More folk about. Supermarkets open 24 hrs.
If im honest ive dreamt and thought of gambling. Not acted on it though. Suppose there will always be moments.
Im managing to keep walking running and working. I count my blessings
Hope everyone ok. Till later
Another rainy day.
Slept well but feel achy. Not poorly just been busy with activities and work. Time to take it easy few days off.
No urges no gambling. But still get a longing feeling at times of why and what a waste. But I then focus on the better things I now have in life.
Got a busy day today so before I know it tea time will be here.
I hope everyone else is doing OK too. Lockdown eases but does that make anxiety easier is another question. I know a lot of folk still have concerns but my feeling is to develop my own new normal.
Anyway till laters
Good Morning Boo,
I hope you are enjoying some relaxation and allowing those aches and pains to fade away.
Also, leave all that gambling baggage in the bin where it belongs. Your on a new path now and have been on it for a long time. Things improve with time and continue to get better. You get to enjoy that now because of the continued effort you’ve put into your recovery.
