I'm Back


I cant believe I haven't posted since the end of February , I do have a reason not a very good one but one anyway.  I really haven't done anything worth blogging about, same old same old but the reason for feeling like this I'm convinced its the Champix tablets that I have been taking to give up smoking.  I'm still not smoking it’s been 13 long long weeks. I wouldn't call myself a non smoker, far from that, I'm a smoker who is dying to have a cigarette but wont.  I find I walk slowly through the plumes of smoke where the smokers gather outside shopping centres etc. and I take in the deepest breaths I can.  I had a friend come over yesterday and she kept moving away from me, please stay nearby I was thinking.  How long is this going to go on for?  Anyway I would never have stopped smoking without the tablets but they really did my head in.  I've had no motivation what so ever to do anything so as a result I'm behind with everything . It was like having “baby brain” as I wrote in an earlier post at first they made me fall asleep  while I was driving, then after a while I wasn't sleeping at all.    One weekend I was paying a rather large bill and put the money into an account that didn't exist and then found that the bank staff didn't work on Saturdays (which was advertised that they did) I think it was a long weekend.  So I had an anxious wait until I could contact the bank and let them know what happened.  Oh it should be back into your account in a couple of days but if not phone us on Thursday or Friday, lucky for me it appeared three days later.  The most stupid thing I did was stop taking the tablets three weeks ago.  I didn't even give it a thought that I would be giving up the tablets cold turkey, dumb dumb dumb, told you my mind wasn't in a good place. I had a good week last week so I might be getting back to normal I am craving a bit more than I was but I will get over it.  The good thing is my mind is much more with it.


The other exciting thing is my girl turned 18, I'm seriously too young to have an 18 year old.  So we had breakfast with her and some of her friends, then sent them on their way to the Gold Coast for the weekend.  The funny thing is that Tess wanted Tony and I to go with her but we thought the kids would cramp our style and to be honest my clubbing days are well and truly over.


They stayed at the The Towers of Chevron Renaissance     which was a really good price $350 for a two bedroom apartment for two nights, Tess said it was lovely it was right in town close to the shops and nightclubs.  Then on the Saturday night we had booked them with a limo tour, well it was actually a stretched hummer.   I was really happy with this, they were taken to various nightclubs around the coast, when they arrived they were escorted into VIP areas and had security with them all night.  Tess only took three of her friends but she said the group below were a lot of fun, they were all in the hummer together.  The cost of this was $120 per person



She had such a good time, she doesn't look 18 does she :)

Firstly, a HUGE congrats on not smoking. You are do amazing, especially since you've been a brain fog. Most people would have given up and gone back to smoking so you should be very proud of yourself. Looks like Tess had a great time. We always stay at the Chevron when in Surfers. What a great idea with the limo ride - nice to know they're having fun but safe at the same time :-). Hope to hear more from you on your blog.
