Yes, that's me.
Last night we met with a group of friends for a meal in a local restaurant, to celebrate the fact that most places have now reopened as normal and we can all get together again.
Everyone chose their meal and opted for beer or other drinks. My friend and I were going to order a glass of wine each but it was suggested that, if we were thinking of having more than just one glass each we should get a bottle to share as that would work out cheaper. So we did.
Unfortunately, after her first glass my friend decided that she didn't want any more. Actually, neither did I, however I didn't want to see the rest of the bottle go to waste so felt obliged to drink an extra glass, which I really didn't want.
Although by no means intoxicated, I had trouble sleeping and woke feeling quite fuzzy this morning, which was unfortunate as I was working in the gift shop today.
I think I shall have a few days "on the wagon".
You should have passed the bottle to Lord Peregrine. He would have necked it in a jiffy.ReplyDelete
P.S. How was the meal itself?Delete
Any meal that I don't have to prepare and cook myself is wonderful. It was pretty good though, and the company was delightful.Delete
Did you wash up afterwards or did you pay the bill?😊ReplyDelete
Lord P paid the bill, but only to earn points on his credit card. The others gave him their share in cash!Delete
This caused a wry laugh on my part as I have had similar experiences in the past - really one glass of wine is enough for me.ReplyDelete
You would think I should know better at my age.Delete
I've had one tonight. If the kids weren'tback it would have been two.ReplyDelete
Mine ended up being closer to three. Hence the post title.Delete
I'm no good with drink, just a tot of sherry is enough to make me all heavy and I don't like the feeling.ReplyDelete
At least you got out and that must have been lovely.
You are wiser than me Briony xDelete
I'm more astonished at meeting up with friends for a meal. I can't see that happening here for a while.ReplyDelete
We are still COVID-free here at the moment so people feel safe, for the time being. We shall see what happens once they start to allow people back from UK once more.Delete
Maybe next time take the bottle home with you and pop it in the fridge. Just another option. 😊ReplyDelete
A much better idea.Delete
That's what happens when you get old, JayCee, you can't take the drink anymore. This is the voice of experience talking here I hasten to add...ReplyDelete
I know, but I still make the same mistakes xDelete
So great to go out eh? I usually go get them to cork the bottle and I bring it home. But like you, more than one glass gives me a disrupted sleep as I get too hot then feel lethargic next day (which is pretty much how I am most days anyway!)ReplyDelete
