So, into the home stretch. Just hd to navigate through "Tunes In The Dunes" a festival virtually in my front garden here in Perranporth this weekend. Not too bad, as I was designated adult for the youth, so good to be sober and a proper grown up for a change.
The Estrella dance bar provided three type of non-alcoholic beer (Ironically called FreeDamm), so worked my way through that with Jim...(don't bother with the Lemon version).
I'm going to have one last push on the fundraising this week as we head toward Friday (1st) and a 50th birthday party...
So please pass this around.
Keen to be back in the middle of things and feeling healthier than a few weeks ago.
Definitely a lot harder to not drink in June than January. But I won't be doing that again anytime soon.
Adios for now, please continue to support the Andy Taylor Foundation however you can and thanks for your support.
Two weeks - done...
Day 6 – Monday
Day 9 – Thursday
Easier than last week.
Day 10 – Friday
It’s tricky on a Friday night. Corona Zero…
Day 11 – Royal Cornwall Show
I realised that looking at tractors and garden furniture, which I thought I enjoyed in the sun, was only fun because I’d usually consumed a few pints of Cider.
A trek around the showground on coke zero.
Day 12 – Sunday, @SoccerAid
A bit tricky, free bar and VIP Hospitality courtesy of UNICEF.
Had to turn down a champagne that Baby Spice offered me.
Day 13 – Monday
No one drinks on a Monday, not even me.
Day 14 – two weeks complete…
I’m convincing myself that I’m halfway – there’s four weeks in a month, yes?
Trying not to think about the forthcoming heatwave, Glastonbury and Tunes in the Dunes to navigate…
Bernadette’s birthday party.
Very hot, sundowners on the balcony. The Corona Cero saved me.
Absolutely no support from any guests.
Only suggestion was to delay the start by two days and end later.
It doesn’t work like that.
The Great Estate Festival – another tough gig
There are very few festivals in Jan. So, a super sunny outing to the Great Estate really tested my resolve.
Quite bored of explaining why I’m not drinking in June. “It’s the worse month”.
No 0% beer at the festival. Diet bloody coke. Who’s the real losers in this?
Good job I’m mentally strong.
Day 4 – Saturday
Dreary and rainy day, so much easier. Although watching the insipid England performance against Hungary nearly made me reach for a a glass of wine.
Day 5 – Sunday
Swim, Bike ride and no alcohol. Nearly feeling healthy.
Super sunset was a tempting moment, but I’m starting to feel a but worthy now. Enjoyed watching those returning from the festival/jubilee weekend of partying. A little smug.
So here we go then.
Very sunny at the office and a full bar in the courtyard so it was a Heineken 00 for me. Much harder after a short but intense week, weds was like a double friday.
Also true that sunny June days are not January.
I don't care what Si says, it's only a half marathon - I'm going the whole month.
Stocked up on the way home -
1. Corona Cero (my current favourite if you haven't tried it yet (with lime you'd nearly never know!).
2. Guinness 0%
3. Brewdog Punk AF
4. Lucky Saint.
Celebrating on the beach tonight. It's going to be a long month...
Thanks for your support of the Andy Taylor Foundation. Please share the love.
