Actually struggled a bit on my trip to Cali. Thought about it
It would be so easy to get shit faced drunk because of this family visit from hell that didn’t turn out the way I expected it. But where would that have got me. No fucking where!!! Instead I’m already over it. It passed. And I still got my loving family even when I don’t agree with them and they all piss me off. And no crushing hangover. And these beautiful flowers.
Way to go Eric - thank you for your inspiration. Yeah - life can’t always be rosy and easy going - thank you for showing us that we can navigate through it sober and come out of it with 0 regrets.
Love the pic -and those flowers are beautiful
Keep going strong my friend
Felt like making a change. No more viking beard. For now……
Those flowers are gorgeous!
They sure brightened my day. Hope the same for you.
Looking great. Are you almost smiling there?
Thanks… Lol…an lmost as smile yeah…
Thanks Eric…I too love the black and white pics from time to time
What a lovely change having to wait sober…so grateful I was not itching to get outta there and get a fix. They were super behind today so 20 min in waiting room and another 1/2 hour in room… grateful for sobriety and meditation to keep me sane
Here goes another interview!
I didn’t get the other 2 because I was overqualified apparantly
Best of luck! looking sharp!
Gym o’clock. Again. Let’s do this 🏋♂
It was a snap interview, I took a punt on a really well regarded restaurant in town that tbh, I didn’t think would be interested in my experience. They called me today, asked me for an interview within 2 hours and the head chef asked me to come and work the evening if I didn’t mind which of course I did. I shall find out Friday. Would be nice, the head chefs a nice woman and it’s all fresh food, all home made, not a microwave in sight.

Another holiday season comes around where I’m not talking to my mum and this year it might become a permanent change so I’m struggling with that a bit
Sending you strength, protect your sanity first.
Very cool Josh – fingers crossed for you. Homemade and fresh food -
Looking great! Sorry for the struggles - sending you comfort and strength while you deal with this estrangement.
1211 days AF is awesome!
Some people may remember about 5 years ago I used to drop pictures and stories of my time in a kitchen I loved working in back then that gave me the ultimate creative flare whilst working - It wont be the same at this place if they decide to take me on from a creative standpoint as they need consistency in their recipes but when the time comes for a menu change, that’s when I will really badger the Head Chef to let me join in the creative fun! Til then, I’ve got music and writing. Also, I really need to learn to paint my nails properly.
