Causes For Celebration

celebration-large What a week it’s been! There’s so many causes for celebration for me right now. Here’s the list:

  • Working to become smoke-free. I did 8 days without a cigarette, substituting cigs for Nicotinell 2mg Fruit Nicotine Gum. I’ve had a little lapse, but am determined to become smoke-free, mainly for health reasons.
  • I got £30 back from an old car servicing contract.
  • The BIG NEWS is that I’ve been offered and accepted a new job. As a rule I don’t blog about work, but I couldn’t resist sharing my good news. The new job is a fantastic opportunity and something I am super excited about.
  • A friend of mine got some good health-related news.
  • It is Papa’s Birthday today. We are having a family BBQ to celebrate tomorrow.

My mum took me out for tea to celebrate my new job. To celebrate I treated myself to 2 duck feather pillows and 3 books (The Traitor Queen by Trudi Canavan, It by Stephen King and Spun by Catherine Mckenzie). I plan to continue the celebration with a little Prosecco tomorrow with the family.

You may have noticed a lack of new blog over the last few weeks. This is because I was preparing for the interview. Now that it’s done, I shall get back to regular blogging.

    Hi Antony,

    Yes, I meant to say today! Haha! Tip for the gum – buy 4mg if you can and halve each piece. Double for the money.

    Forgot to say, thank you for cheering me up. I’m going through another depression visitation- George the hooded figure who likes to push me down and sit on my chest. I have had a better week of late, but he leaves me tired and more.

    I hope you are faring well, my love. Andrea xx

      Hi Andrea,

      Thanks for the comment and the tip for the Nicotine gum. I’m glad my blog has cheered you up.

      Sorry you haven’t had the best of weeks. Depression and chest-sitting anxiety are difficult. But just hold on and take it a day – or a moment – at a time.

      Remember that it does get better with the right treatment (which may include anti-depressants and/or anti-anxiety medication, along with talking therapies).

      Most of all know that you are not alone.

      A x
