Chin chin!

Well, my lovelies, I have officially fallen off the wagon. I won't feel the bump till morning.

I've had half a bottle of red wine and I feel like a smoker who has had the first puff after a long abstinence... a heightened reaction, lots of dizziness. I'm tempted to let my typos survive in this post, but I'm not quite drunk enough to do that, so I've spent longer fixing than I have typing.

I lasted 5 months. It wasn't hard, and I'll probably drink less than I did before I stopped, but it's nice to be able to have a drink. Or three. Did that make sense?

I initially stopped because we thought it might be good for my our fertility, but I've come to terms with the fact that I'll need divine or at least medical intervention to get pregnant at my age (and with my dodgy reproductive organs), and I'm not interested in that path. I'd rather foster, or just send money to people who need it.

So... we'll just enjoy Bumblebee, and continue not using contraception, and stop fussing. You never know, it might turn out to be the right combination, but if not, I don't think I'll be terribly upset.

Too much information? I'll let you know tomorrow.

Well done with 5 months on the wagon. I once did without for 18 months, but that wasn't voluntarily. :(

And you'll be surprised how much of a weight comes off your shoulders if you stop trying :)

hey duck, there's a large letterpress drawer with some letterpress stuff in it (*not much) for sale at a place in Fyshwick if you're interested. Saw it and thought of ducks. Congratulations on your wagon and on falling off it.

Thanks Seldom! I've heard rumours of this before -- I'll have to go scouting. Do you know the name of the place?

Amazing how often relaxing about getting pregnant does work - good luck with that (all that wanton, unprotected sex...what a chore, haha).
