Alcohol without food is never a good idea...

Helga is staring at the two empty wine bottles that she managed to polish off all by herself last night...

I'm not a big drinker. I guess growing up in a house where the alcohol flowed far too freely sort of put me off alcohol. Until recently I'd disliked whisky as it's my father's drink of choice (too many bad memories) but my husband has taught me that there is nothing wrong with sharing a nice mellow single malt.

I'm not really a beer drinker either, but I do like to have a lager shandy once in a while, and if we're abroad, I do enjoy drinking Hoegaarden Blonde (with a slice of lemon) and Bellevue Kriek (a cherry beer from Belgium).

So my tipple of choice is wine. White wine to be precise. Growing up in South Africa means I know what decent wine tastes like, and I DON'T like cheap and cheerful wines - they're a recipe for a hangover. Having said that....

Mr Hansen was out (band practice for this weekend's big gig), they were showing a rerun on telly, so I was chatting. Earlier in the evening I'd been having a get-to-know you chat with someone which became rather heavy, and left me feeling out of sorts. I'd not bothered getting dinner, so basically had an empty stomach. One bottle later, I was starting to feel the effects of alcohol + empty stomach.

Back in March I wrote about alcohol making you fearless. Add to that not giving a shit and just saying what comes into one's mouth. I was on my second bottle and struggling to type coherently. MSN has this wonderful feature called message history... mine made interesting reading this morning and I'm surprised I've got any friends left!!

I can't even remember the conversations I was having in the Euro Tub... of course, this could mean open season on me, but I've a feeling I was pretty well behaved, apart from telling people to bugger off... I think I did that A LOT last night!

Despite all of this, I didn't wake up with a hangover... thanks in part to the fact I was drinking decent wine, and the glass of mineral water my husband brought me just before I fell into bed. I did wake up with my memories though... and have already grovelled to all the necessary people ... hopefully I'll be all sorted by this evening... and tonight I think I'll stay off the wine and stick to my favourite mineral water!!

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥
