January 1st 2011  

So,its the first day of 2011...how many of you are dieing with hangovers today?
My mom has one and im guessing both my sister does too (my nieces stayed here last night and are staying tonight again).

My other sister whos daughter is Jordan doesn't get bad hangovers, she doesn't drink very much anyway,and me....I don't drink at all,I take a few sips of wine at Christmas day dinner and a few sips of Baily's on NYE,which I did last night.

Its my niece Jordans birthday today,shes 15 years old (it only seems like yesterday that I was that age,now im gonna be 32 in 26 more days time :(, I am getting old)

Anyway,I hope you all had agreat night at mid-night what ever you were doing,I was reading a great story called "Emerald Enchantment" By galeandrandy which is here ---> Emerald Enchantment and listening to everyone in my sitting room yelling Happy New Year to each other,so I went down and sat for half an hour with them,my folks were in a great mood and my nieces were such a joy also :)

I got a new lay out,I managed to put it in myself by choosing my own colours (I admit it was tweaked in a few places by Nicky ifuseeknicky,but I love it alot,have alook here yvonnereid and see what you think!

Ok,im off now to find a new story to read,any recs?

No hangover for me. I don't really drink all that much since a very close call when I was in my early twenties where I drank way too much and ended up in a bad situation. Luckily a friend was there to help me, but I learned my lesson and I don't ever abuse alcohol, especially to the point where I'm no longer in control.

Hey, I'm an Aquarius as well! My brithday is February 5th! *g*

Like the new layout. The colours are very pretty!

Happy New Year, hon!!

Thank you Chris that you like the layout.

The reason I don't drink past half a glass of anything is because im afraid to.

I grew up around heavy drinkers and saw alot of stuff.

I babysat for a couple for years and the husband used to beat his wife (my good friend later in life) up infront of their kids and I was only like 13 at the time so I didn't think to take the kids from the room.

And both my parents are alcoholics,but thankfully it has been over 10 years now since my dad drank cos he had acute liver failiar (I hope I spelt that correctly).

My mom still drinks everyday but has cut down til evening time and only has two or three glasses a day.

My oldest sister is an alcoholic,my brother and other sister drink but only on a Friday and Saturday night.

I see all this happening and it makes me scared I may turn out the same.

Some of my uncles and an aunt are alcoholics aswell,and sadly the women whos husband used to beat up died last year from too much alcohol,it distroyed her liver completley.

Shit,I never meant to say so much here lol,but yea,thats why I am afraid of the stuff.

Huge warm hugs x

You're not old at all. I have a son that is only 2 years younger than you. I'm going to be 49 in March. I have a body that has aches and pains to prove it.

If you like anti Mikey stories then I would recommend Forever Young This is one of my favorites. It's pretty long but a great read. Enjoy.

Love you new layout. :)

Honey, you aren't old, believe me. I'll be 60 this year, now that's OLD!! :))
Yvonne Reidyvonnereid on January 2nd, 2011 01:59 pm (UTC)
No its not,my granny is 76 and acts like a woman in her 20's,she is so mentally fit for her age,so 60 is nothing,besides,as my gran always says,you are only as old as you feel,for me its sometimes 100 lol :)
Huge warm hugs x
Lynspike7451 on January 2nd, 2011 03:15 pm (UTC)
I have days when I feel 100 too. lol.
