Following my last blog post my husband had another stressful Friday at the charity shop he works at.
We had another little chat about the stress it is causing him and his options.

Just been with mum for five days straight. I don't know how my dad has the energy and the patience if I am 32 and he is 70 this year. Wow I admire him.

I know I shouldn't I was very alarmed with the cramping and was scared I had endangered my health from drinking. I am now on a non drinking liver cleanse
