Fragile New Year

We did try to go out today - it was a lovely sunny morning, ideal for a trip over to Whistling Sands, where we didn't manage to go on Christmas Day because of the snow. However, by mid-day, we were back, having had to stop the car several times for fresh air, as I decided, regretfully, that I just wasn't going to make it.
The problem was not the tummy bug that's doing the rounds at present, no, it was, I have to admit, totally self-inflicted, albeit quite unintentionally.
Well, how was I to know that 2 red wines, a Martini, an Advokaat and 2 Cointreaus would cause me to feel 'fragile' to say the least, today? I have never been a big drinker (no, really) and as the years pass, my alcohol tolerance is gradually decreasing anyway but after today, I think I'll swear off the stuff for ever! What a waste of a day - and all self-induced, and what makes it worse is that Keith has been full of health and energy all day. So unfair!!! :(

Green around the gills huh. You should have stuck to the red wine. A few more reds today will fix you Jen!!

I agree, Michelle. Jacob's Creek shiraz. Or Wolf Blas. Nectar of the OZ. Brilliant!!

Hope you feel better soon, Jenny.

I can't drink like I used to either. I have three beers and I need a nap, at our ages, me 45, hubby 56, we tend to stay in, have a beer or a glass of wine and turn in early. It takes too long to recover anymore.

That was our intention, Vicky! Trouble was, it didn't quite turn out that way - one turned into two etc....lol
