So then she fell off the Wagon!

Well, actually it was the deck!!! Well, not quite… I’ll explain…

It was such a gorgeous afternoon yesterday that after work I decided to sit out on my deck and laze a bit in the sun before dinner.  Dinner was going to be easy as hubby was away overnight in Wellington and Big Son was coming home after Seven-a-Side soccer to have dinner with me before going back to his place over at Mt. Wellington.  I had a nice smoked chicken salad all ready and was just having a nice laze on the deck when it suddenly occurred to me that there were some “new” beers lurking in the fridge downstairs.

These “new” beers are low carb and I bought a six pack a couple of weeks ago for just such an afternoon with the gorgeous afternoon sun warming my poor tired bones and a book in hand for company. (Currently reading Au Revoir: Running Away from Home at Fifty by Mary Moody).  So I thought I’d have one to celebrate the arrival of summer.  BIG mistake!

When Big Son finally arrived at 8pm, I was on my third and I HAD to have another one with him.  This left one poor lonely bottle in the fridge – which I hasten to add, is ACTUALLY still there!

So! Hence it was the deck and the weather’s fault that I “fell off the wagon”.  Yeah, Right! Well I have to blame anyone or anything but myself…

I have just blown my whole alcohol allowance in one day and it’s not even the weekend yet.  Gosh, is there ANY hope for me???

But today is a new day…

Started well with brekkie and will have a yummy salad and salmon filled pita bread planned for lunch.  Still wondering what to have for dinner.  Ah and it’s raining – so no chance of quaffing the last bottle in the sun tonight! 😉

    low carb beer!

    Must look out for that.
    I am battling the pull of Monteith’s Summer Ale….

    Day 3 is always the hardest…once you are over that it is OK to jump straight back onto the wagon.
    Fear not

    Yes! Low Carb. It’s called Mac’s Spring Tide and it is rather nice. Usually in summer I like (actually – LOVE)the odd Corona and Lime, but I really enjoyed the Mac’s. LOL. Maybe add some lime to get in my fruit quota!

    Thanks for the support! 🙂

    How funny you are writing, you could write a book when you are old…
    Re book there is one called Every good woman deserves a lover. from Diana Appleyard about a woman who is stuck in her life/marriage/kids and goes and walks the old Inka trail in Peru…
    Let me know if I should bring it next time I am in Akld so you can read it. She looses weight without trying….

    Just catching up with the news …
    Good Luck DD!
    Take it slowly – and so what if you slip up (relieved you didn’t actually fall off the decking!)- if we were all perfect life would be soooooo dull …

    Hope your eating ‘companion’ MM was clipped round the lug’ole for such an ‘erudit observation’ LOL

    Keep going Girl!!!!
