DH out cycling. Cannot be arsed to cook. Boys are watching Tarzan, and I have strip washed them and put them in PJs without them taking their eyes off screen. Went to gym this morning. It was wine or Gin and gin won, and oh oh oh I love Kettle chips......

Finally - a thread title that makes me snigger and then grin - brilliant OP and no - YANBU!

That sounds like an excellent plan. Here I have a preference for a bottle of white wine and some chipsticks, when given half an excuse grin

TheGoddessBlossom Tue 07-Jun-11 18:37:10

YAY! Pours another. Chillaxes. grin

Monty27 Tue 07-Jun-11 18:38:55

OP I forgot to say YADNBU.

Do you know what? I have gin, I have tonic, I have lemon, I have ice, I have kettle chips......

<wobbles> ......... back later grin

You'll be craving a kebab at 11pm grin

Sounds wonderful. <nips out for crisps - there's always gin in>

TheGoddessBlossom Tue 07-Jun-11 18:43:33

All welcome. Monty get stuck in. Do not regret my decision for a second. Hic.

Who said kebab???

katvond Tue 07-Jun-11 18:44:35

We are having kebab tonight
We love to live so dangerous these days ;)

I am laughing because directly below you on the AIBU threads is the one about disliking the culture of alcohol worship on MN!

I like Gin though...

izzywhizzyletsgetbusy Tue 07-Jun-11 18:46:35

I'm on the Kingfisher tonight.

Prawn dhansak with loads of parathas later, anyone?

TheGoddessBlossom Tue 07-Jun-11 18:47:39

I just saw that! Typical! Fell like a right alkie now.

Would you believe me if I said I could take or leave the gin but the kettle chips were a must?

GrimmaTheNome Tue 07-Jun-11 18:48:32

I have no alcohol in the house. Or crisps of any sort. Damn. Because I also have no DH in the house tonight and DD seems to have absconded to her friends where she's probably been fed, so this would have been the perfect night for not Eating Healthily.

Katy1368 Tue 07-Jun-11 18:49:23

I believe you!

I could do with a nice cold gin and tonic right now though...sigh!

TheGoddessBlossom Tue 07-Jun-11 18:50:05

check the garage? That's where my stash lives..

OMG now I sound like a RIGHT alcholic.

Katy1368 Tue 07-Jun-11 18:53:17

Made me laugh thoughsmile

I am going to check the other thread to see if anyone has noticed this one yet!

SeriousWispaHabit Tue 07-Jun-11 18:53:38

Sounds balanced to me. Maybe add a slice of lemon to the gin and that's one of your 5-a-day covered too.

Monty27 Tue 07-Jun-11 18:53:55

Problem..... there's no lemon left, and the crisps aren't kettle chips, they're tortillas... sad

But I'll survive grin <slurp>

Chin chin everyone

Yanbu. I had whole big bar of dark chocolate, with sparkling mineral water, mmmmm.

AMumInScotland Tue 07-Jun-11 19:01:41

I don't worship alcohol. I just enjoy it. Occasionally and in moderation. Why wouldn't we?

ChairOfTheBored Tue 07-Jun-11 19:44:40

YANBU - sounds heavenly.

As others have said, lemon has vitamin C, so you're scurvey safe, and tonic has quinnine, which is important for other things, malaria maybe, and with all this hot weather we're due you can never be too careful!
