Good luck Heather! I have a friend who is going through the same as you at the moment.

Today I asked my boss for 4 days annual leave and she is 'considering it' - really annoyed me as there is no-one else off at that time and I think she just loves to be awkward!

Being serious for a moment, what's made me frown over the past few days has been reading about the Australian backpacker named Britt Lapthorne, who went missing in Dubrovnik about three weeks ago.

Sadly her body was found in the harbour by local fishermen about two days ago, but it's in such a state that it was not obvious whether the body was male or female.

This girl's father and brother are now in Croatia trying to make some sense of what happened, and trying to find answers. More importantly, they are organising the transport of her body back to Melbourne.

This is truly a sad and shocking story. May God give her family some peace.

How are you getting on??

If I could do it, you can do it! Five weeks I've been off now. Fingers crossed!

The first few days are by far the hardest, I couldn't even sit in my living room, I had to sit in the bedroom all evening because I never smoked in there.

How's it going - well l would lie to say l havent sucumbed but l am down to maybe like 2 cigs a day max and l have replaced the others with lollipops!! I cant do the hiding in the bedroom thing though Mikey - l dont smoke at all in the house stopped all that over a year ago when l did all the renovation work and got new furniture etc!

Im not doing too bad l dont smoke at work l have one when l get in from work, like last night l didnt have any at all cos l was out with someone and he didnt smoke and lm away today with work and l wont smoke either so l think lm getting there slowly but surely!!!
