Welcome back DervalC! Hope your tooth is better soon-nothing worse than a bad toothache!

Enjoyed reading your food record! How was your head after the wine? Did you find it gave you a hangover having had so long before the holiday without it? Planning ahead for my own holiday! :)

Nice to have you back!

The offending wisdom tooth is oming out next Weds :(

I had a huge feed of wine immediately after my W30 (at the http://www.pomegranate.ie/ launch) . On holidays I had half a bottle with lunch and then maybe 2 glasses and a bottle of beer in the evening when playing cards/boardgames (yeah exciting!!) So never enough for a hangover. Enough for a shocking amount of lbs though!
