Today was my first day back at work following a lovely two-week Christmas and New Year break. I decided to go back on a Friday so that Monday wasn’t too great a shock!
Work was good and I even took my first Dryathlon™ after work drinks outing to the pub with two of my work pals. One of the guys had a Fentiman’s Ginger Beer and two of us had the Orchard Pigs ‘Very Berry’ juice. It was delicious and I didn’t even add a shot of vodka!
So here we are, it’s the first Friday night in January and, knowing that the new series of Silent Witness started last night, I had already planned on having an evening on the sofa getting stuck into what I knew would be a gripping two-parter.
Rather than sulk about going alcohol-free on a Friday night, I decided to treat myself to an exciting alternative to my usual bottle of prosecco and so went home via a local Deli and bought myself a bottle of Belvoir Raspberry and Lemon juice which I poured over some ice and topped up with some Perrier water. Again, no vodka.
So we are three days down on Dryathlon™ and today I passed two major alcohol-free milestones – after work drinks and a Friday night on the sofa.
Here’s to a hangover-free Bootcamp with Edo in the morning…
I can do this.
