    Morning!

    I'm here to pick your brains. DH and I are off to a wedding this weekend. It's on Saturday but we're down there for a long weekend and staying in a big house with DH's best friend and his girlfriend plus a lot of other folk that I don't know that well. There's a hot tub and sauna in the house which I won't be able to use and there's going to be a lot of drinking going on that I won't be doing either!

    Any ideas of what to use as an excuse for not drinking and not going in the hot tub/sauna??? I can say I'm on antibiotics for the reason for not drinking but what about the hot tub?? I really don't want to tell people yet even though we are very close to DH's best mate and his girlfriend. HELP!!!

    When i had a local anastetic the other day ( for tooth out)they gave me a leaflet which said no drinking for 24 hours, no excercise, no hot drinks etc.I think heat can increase blood flow and thats why no excercise so not sure if you could twist it a bit, or why you could say you've had one but its just an idea, cant think of any more excuses! xxxxx

    Hiya, i had the same trouble a few weeks ago as we went to stay with my mother in law and had a family gathering... the way out of drinking for me was that i was having trouble with my wisdom tooth and on painkillers. It seemed to work. Not sure about the jacuzzi problem though ..... x

    Thanks girls. I might go with the kidney infection excuse since it should cover both.

    I'll let you know how I get on. I think hubby's best mate is going to be very suspicious whatever I say.

    I just say I'm on my period.. clears up the hot tub nice and quick, and no one thinks you're preggers.
    Also explains tiredness, moodiness, cramps, tender boobs, and bloating.
