Yay! Month 3!
« on: December 03, 2017, 10:03:32 am »
So I am now officially into month 3.  Go me!  I had some really bad cravings for a cigarette the other morning but I got through them.  I am just looking forward whilst taking it day by day.  I have an appointment on Friday with a mortgage advisor so hopefully I will soon be a home owner.  Things are looking up a little bit on some fronts.  Panto is fast approaching - I haven’t mentioned it much but I am playing one of the beautiful sisters in Cinderella and I am loving it.
Things are still not great with my Aunt but she is going through treatment and is looking forward to a family Christmas. She is making the most of the time she has left.
Anyway, onwards and upwards towards the penthouse.  I am not taking anything for granted but I am going to keep going and ask for help if I need it.

I think that keeping busy is a very good thing for keeping Old Nic away. Plus I must say that whilst I think your tree looks lovely, I think that wallpaper is very nice.

Wow your Christmas tree looks amazing.  I have a tiny house and a tiny Christmas tree but I've had a major "de-clutter" this year and much more space so definitely going to treat myself to a bigger tree next year.

Congratulations on getting to month three.  I hope the mortgage appointment goes well, a lovely new home of your own would definitely be good motivation to keep going.

Good luck with the panto, look forward to seeing a photo and I do hope your aunt's treatment is going as well as can be expected.

@markmcclean1980 my friend, you are doing so well, but to own your own home will be fantastic for you and what a Xmas present, so I so hope Friday goes well for you and please let us know how it goes.

WAY TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good to see you doing so well hon, and I love your tree!  I know how much you love your pantos, we definitely, DEFINITELY need a pic of this year's costume (and not too teeny either!)

Panto season has been a challenge on the smoking front for you in previous attempts, what have you got planned to help you through this time?

I will get some pics of costumes and post them here.

@Kat73 I don’t think Panto season will be too hard.  The script we are using is heavy on the ugly sisters so i’ll be on stage a lot of the time.  Once we get started I will be fine.  I intend to keep my vape handy and fully stocked up.  Also, with the voice I am using and all the singing I can’t afford to put any extra strain on my throat so that should help.  If I need support or just to vent I will come here before I even consider anything else.  All in all I feel very prepared and very positive about this year.

Sounds like a plan!  :D

You hang on tight hon, if the sneaky little oik sticks his head above the parapet you know what to do  :ninja:

Do you get an Ugly Sister name in your panto?
