Is it still summer?

Last week I started to plan having a drink….this is what happens, a lot. I have a break, then one day my Brain just says “well you could” we all know how it goes and how the seed grows in to a huge great big uncontrollable weed that continues to return no matter how many times you pull it out by the goddamn root!?!

So I put weed killer on it and carried on, I actually thought it was longer since I had last drank and then when I figured it out it was just over 3 weeks and I just thought,come this is ridiculous.

The weed has popped through again this morning in the supermarket, but I thought no if I still want to drink later I can go out and purchase something- I.e if I impulsively buy it now as there are offers on in the supermarket I am then more than likely to drink it/get drunk/hate myself etc etc….

And that time in between is all I needed to remind myself that I only want the flowers to grow. Like kelly clarksons song “sober” – I will continue to “pick all my weeds, but keep the flowers”
