One Year Booze Free

First weekend without booze

OK – this isn’t the first time I’ve quit drinking before. But knowing that I need to wait nearly a year when I fancy a glass of wine, rather than a month or a week is hard!!

However, this weekend was so good, I didn’t even think about drinking. Went to the Leonardo Da Vinci Exhibition at the National Gallery in London. It was fascinating. Although I’ve seen quite a bit of his work when visiting Rome and Florence, I have never had the priviledge of seeing his sketches. Looking at them made me realise how much time he must have spent perfecting his talents and practising his skills. Seeing where he’s gone wrong or experimented in his drawings was inspiring and reminded me how important the process is in a great pieces of art work. Thanks Da Vinci.

Afterwards we crossed the road to St. Martins in the Field to do brass rubbing. I highly recommend it – very therapeutic and a nice thing to sit down and do after a mind blowing exhibition, rather than a typical trip to a local bar (always v. expensive) on Trafalgar Square.

Spending the weekend with friends who are more interested in stimulating conversation and challenging each other with good board games was far more fun then nursing a hangover for 36 hours of the weekend. It also meant there was no pier pressure to get pissed.
