National No Smoking Day – March 8th

National No Smoking Day

Next month sees the return of National No Smoking Day. Back in my younger days I used to be a smoker. I came from a family who all smoked and all my friends smoked. This is back in the days when you could smoke in pubs and clubs.

I stopped when I met my Husband as he isn’t a smoker. I went cold turkey and managed to have stopped (mostly) for about 13 year. I won’t lie to you, I still have the odd cigarette now and then, socially, but I have managed to keep it in check. I have developed a handbag habit instead but that’s not quite so bad to my health!

My Mam is slowly weaning herself off cigarettes too by using an e-cig with a low nicotine liquid. I wish she would stop all together but i’m hoping some of these handy tips in today’s post might help.

Our 10th Wedding Anniversary

wedding-anniversary

At 3pm today, I’ll have been married for precisely 10 year. Can you believe it, because I certainly can’t!

I feel like 10 year is a big milestone these days, especially for getting married so young. I sometimes can’t get my head around people my age only getting married now!
