Fears and Phobias!

I want to talk about my fears, phobias. I have the usual not keen on heights, spiders and mice make me feel physically sick, but my biggest fear of walking down the stairs or really falling down them. Without exception no matter how small or large the flight of stairs are I imagine myself falling down them.
 In fact the image in my head is twisting my ankle as I step and then falling.
I have had issues with stairs in the past, as a 5/6  year old My sister and me were playing on our stairs at home jumping up and down them when my sister pushed me and I fell head first through the Glass front door smashing it with my head I still have the scars today.

Just after the Accident


I have had a few tumbles since then, I am fairly unsteady on my feet at the best of times I don't think I have ever gone more than 6 months without falling a damaging something ( and it's not always alcohol fueled ) I think what bought the fear to the surface was, a few years ago I fell about 4 or 5 steps from the bottom but I was home alone and very scared I didn't do much damage but shook myself up. As I write this It seems so silly but it's very real I avoid stairs when i'm out, choosing to take the lift or escalator (which I will NEVER walk down) where possible.Funnily enough I have no problem walking up stairs and I've fallen up the more times than I care to remember.

Have you any Fears or Phobias?

Happy New Year

I know it's been a long time coming but I would like to wish all my lovely readers a Very Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a good Christmas, I did mine was the usual family packed with baby Williams First Christmas and alcohol fueled fun fest! Santa didn't disappoint either this year the Tree was overflowing with presents and  I got some great gifts. We all did rather well this year, My Brother got all the mechanic tools he wanted, my Dad got all the Whiskey and Music he wanted, my sister (who has just bought a house) got a ton of house stuff including her much loved basket of cleaning supplies from my Mom (no Joke!!!) and my Mom got the 32" flat screen TV she wanted!!! I also had a go at making Sweet Chilli Dipping sauce and gave it out as presents along with some candy cane covered cake pops and as no one is dead yet I would say they were fairly successful!

New year was spent with my Brother Tom and his girlfriend Vicki and My Sister Jennie and my soon to be Brother in law Alan at a house party. I was a brilliant night, and as the clock struck 12 Tom and Alan got their kit off and spent the 3 hours of 2012 in a hot tub while I sat outside next to a roaring fire and watched the fireworks. It was a brilliant night and i rolled back home at 4am and woke with only a hint of a hangover WooHoo!

But now all the festivities I'm back on weight watchers as it's only 4 1/2 months to my sister's wedding I was very naughty over Christmas and did gain weight (more than I wanted) but all that stops now. My first new year weight in is on Monday and I'm hoping it gonna be a big loss fingers crossed. It's a busy year for me with Christenings, special Birthdays (one of which is mine) and 2 weddings which means 2 hen nights and a mini break with the whole family I'm really looking forward to it all.

How was your Christmas and New year? Have you got anything big planned?
