    Hi lovely cat lady, how are you doing?
    We on the ferry back home now, it's was lovely weekend getaway, we stay at stradbroke hotel, all breakfast included. yesterday we have BBQ on the beach, than we buy the pass and go for drive along the beautiful white sand beach.
    Their pub have pokies on the island here, but I don't have the urge for gamble so it's was good thing.

    Hey Anita,

    Yes, almost half way through and you've achieved so much already. :D

    I'm great, thanks! :o

    Oh, how nice! (I love ferries but not so much the wind). Wow, sounds like the perfect get away weekend! What a great way to reward yourself for all your hard work. White sand beach is simply the best! :cool:

    I'm happy to hear you had no urges despite the machines being there... I guess that's your new normal. ;);

    Day 37 hi lovely cat lady n hi everyone here
    I am back to work today, feeling fresh cos of the weekend away was nice.
    My wonderful partner was say sweet word to me while we away from home ( he said he love me with his whole heart) was beautiful I almost in tears, cos I didn't expected him to say that, cos I still remember go back 39 day ago, I was too scare to come home after I lost over $6000 in one day.
    My partner his rough men on the edge but he will stand by my side, supported me where I needed the most I feel bless.
    The forum here are beyond amazing I couldn't do it without lovely cat lady & printemps & all the people we all in the same journey together we can do it.

    Hi lovely cat lady how are you doing?
    Yes I feel amazing every day I wake up now, no stress, I was completely different person compare it's use to be.
    No more getaway for a while now, cos I have my own business that I work six day a week, so I can't go away too often, now and than it's ok.
    But this Saturday will go to do a big shopping at harbour town outlet, the end of financial year sale, they got nice hand bag and lovely shoes and nice clothes their, that why I said I start save in next 2 week lol, cos I need go shopping with my girlfriend, eat drink n shop until we drop, $1000 shop I can buy alots of thing when they on special.
    If $1000 for me go play pokies before that doesn't last long at all and nothing to show for either.
    I was very surprised myself that I don't have the urge to gamble anymore.
