Cheese-tastic moment time!!
So sorting through boxes and I came across a holiday postcard dated from May 2000. And reading it was like stepping back in time …..
MrHOF and I had only been together a few months and I was holidaying with a girlfriend of the time. We were in Cyprus, Limassol to be precise and this is what my postcard said:
My lover MrHOF! Hey babe. Having a great time. Sun and booze a plenty. Limassol is a sh*t-hole but the beer goggles make it less so!! Linz and I are drinking the kitty dry every night so a good time is being had by all. Miss you. All love xx
Cue flashback 😀
It’s like my very own flash of time travel. We did have a great holiday but the BIG booze references make me shiver in recognition. Holiday = booze, right? Reading that you’d never have guessed I would go on to have an alcohol dependence issue would you? <sarc>
If my self then could have seen my self now – what would she have thought? Would it have made a difference to the interim 15 years if I’d had the opportunity to glimpse my future – marriage, children and sobriety? It’s funny but writing those three things actually makes me feel weirdly proud. They are the things that I am now most thankful and grateful for.
So what started off as a cringe-worthy and shame inducing moment has flipped nicely on it’s head to a moment of pride. Happy Flashback Friday peeps from the new house where we will be celebrating with AF fizz later 😉
