Introduction for TheCleft

My name is Oliver, is prefer Ollie. I'm a highly skilled Painter & Decorator, i work for the family business which has been established since 1947 (must be doing something right). I have various hobbies ranging from console gaming to acting with a local amateur dramatic society in my area. I dont drink alcohol, i have been sober for almost 20 week, actually 20 week tomorrow to be precise, due to health problems and some other issues. I eat anything and everything, ok thats not true, i dont like spicy food, i sweat when i have HP sauce. I'm a nice guy, i can get on with anyone, I'm diverse in my writing, although I'm only starting out on my journey, some of it can be humorous be also serious.

TheCleft Welcome to Persona Paper, congratulations on your 20 weeks sober. It takes a lot of strength to take on something like that. Look forward to read your posts.

Hi Ollie. What type of painting do you do? Maybe you could post some of your work under pictures or art. I would love to see some of your work. Painting or decorating, your choice. I also like all types of foods but food allergies poise some problems with choice.

This morning I was seriously considering joining you in the Sobriety Club. I was, shall we say, not at my best. I was disinclined to get up and really just wanted to mope in bed all day. Entirely self inflicted, mind. Not good...

Well thank you very much, i won't lie its been tough, but I've had support from friends and family over this festive period.

I am a Painter & Decorator, i shall definitely post some pictures of my work, i take a lot of pride in my work, very rare in a lot of tradesman these days.

TheCleft wrote on January 1, 2015, 5:33 PM

thank you for that lovely kind welcome, i shall be sure to check them both out right now.

considered? I take it the outcome to that decision was a 2 lettered word not 3. did you mope in bed all day or did you raise from your bed and kick today in the behind?

On the first attempt I rose from my bed, inhaled a cup of tea (unsuccessfully, as I was later sick!) took some ibuprofen and went back to bed for a snooze. I eventually came to again, had a shower and half of another cuppa then headed out to snooze gently in the cinema through the latest Hobbit film. I have been very tired lately and the double whammy of wrong time of the month and industrial levels of alcoholic intake last night have left me with the strength of week of dishwater today.

wow! now someones suffered today, and as someone who last new years (2013/2014) i am actually going to sympathise, i hope its only a day long hangover. Did you actually want to see the new hobbit film?

WordChazer wrote on January 1, 2015, 6:09 PM

Oh I saw enough of the film to get the gist of the story. Once I was awake enough to shower I felt much better and I'm back to fighting strength now (my friend made us a curry for supper) although I'm off to bed shortly as I'm in work again tomorrow. With a laundry list of things I need to do in the next few days too.

It's nice to have you on board. Painting and alcohol can be a double whammy. Good for you in abstaining. I'm inclined to like you already!
