Not good! On Saturday I had an unexpected invite from a new friend for me and my family to go up to their house for a drink and a takeaway. My eldest did not want to go as he is 17 so it was my other two boys and my daughter, my friend has three girls and a boy and they are all close to mine in age. I did not think my boys would want to go but they were really excited when I told them! We took a bottle of wine with us and went off, my kids had such a fantastic time they fitted in really well and were so good I was really proud of them. Now I am not used to drinking, it is very rare that I have a drink and when I do I drink WKD which is an alcoholic pop and not very strong but I was drinking wine and because I was talking I did not keep track of what I was drinking and before I knew it I had drunk nearly a full bottle!!!!! Now I did not make a fool of myself and I behaved very well but I was definately drunk!!! We had a great night though and did not get back home until 2am!!! But boy was I ill, I was sick I had a bad headache and I am still not fully recovered now!! So too much of a good thing is definately not good for a person!! When was the last time you had too much of a good thing?

Well, it just so happened that Saturday night I also drank alittle too. I remember now why I didn't like to drink before. My hangover wasn't that bad as I took several tylenols before i went to bed. I did enjoy the feeling I got and it was all good.

It's been years since I had a good night out dancing and drinking. At my sister in laws wedding in New Zealand 2007. We actually went to the Rugby Sevens dressed up as Wonder Woman (10 of us) and boy was a day and night that was. It was a lot of fun from what I remembered LOL I didn't feel good the next day either LOL I'm glad you enjoyed yourself Gemini:)

Atleast you and the kids had a good night, I think you suffered a hangover due to you not drinking much and then when you do, it is only alcopops. Im not much of a drinking either and when I do I am the same as you, drink alcopops. Sometimes after I have had 3 or 4, I start feeling lightheaded lol though I dont admit it to anyone!!
