26 Sorry to hear that! on 14th December 2009, 11:09 am

Whoa, if it doesn't rain it pours eh? Hope everything will get better for you soon. Regarding the red wine thing... maybe check the bottle label to see if it contains sulphites. Commercial bottlers use it to clean the bottles and also to help preserve the product. Maybe it is an allergy to sulphites? Just a thought. In the meantime I will raise a glass to your speedy recovery Smile

Thanks Jojo for your sympathy! I am loads better today (although I have kept Daniel off school today as his tummy still hurts) I will check out your idea. I remember I used to have problems with eating dried fruit because of the preservatives in them...maybe there is a connection? The rubbish they put in things these's scary! We have a thread all about that...but centred around cosmetics creams etc.

That's really strange about the hives. I suspect that I am allergic to certain reds too. Sometimes after drinking I will get hives on hands (luckily not ALL over my body). The only thing that I can think of it being is wine, but I am usually eating at the same time too. Who knows. I hope you get better soon!

If only I could isolate the cause. But if u get hives too maybe it is an additive i the wine..................... Prob is that it really throws my system out and takes weeks for me to get back to normal. At least I should be 'normal' for Xmas.
Incidently Jess where are u for Xmas, I am assuming Belgium??

Boo! I hope he gets better soon Sad Yeah xmas will be in Belgium the suoceri aren't thrilled but we are tight on money. Plus we will probably have to drive down around the beginning of the year to get our crap from verona and the chinzillas (if they survive the MIL looking after them!)

32 Re: Lizzie's 'NON blog' blog on 16th December 2009, 11:36 am

Things are looking better here, although no chance of sorting Xmas presents out with daniel on the prowl!
Xmas in Beligium will be an interesting experience. I wonder what chincillas taste like?????

more vomit VOMIT VOMIT VOMIT!!!!

but i don't care coz I joined the gym and am going to look like a goddess on the beach this summer. (although my inner thighs are killing and i was actually limping on the way to school to get Matteo this afternoon). My new gym is a world of it's own. The owners are really sweet and seem to know everything about everyone. So when someone walks in you get the low down. makes me laugh! (remind me to keep my mouth shut though...) I was told that the famous singer, who is a recent new member, was in the changing room. I think I was expected to rush in and take a photo of her, or ask for her autograph, the poor unexpecting woman who is just trying to wriggle into her shorts and get a work out in peace. oh the paparazzi are everywhere!
G is doing his annual threat ... says he's going to jack in his job , and we can move back to the UK. OH yeah!!!!!!!!!!!! cheers but I know it is all talk and never going to happen really! Anyway I wouldn't wanna to leave my gym.

Remember you gain weight if you build some muscles up so it might not be bad weight if you know what i mean Smile

38 Re: Lizzie's 'NON blog' blog on 9th February 2010, 1:07 pm

nice idea but the weight gain was before i started the gym. u r right in a sense though, that i need to make sure my measurements go down rather than the scales...will be putting on muscle mass!

exciting things that have happened to me lately:

I became an auntie again, my brother had a son on 27th feb. That is the 6th grandson for my parents!!!!

Not so good things:

Daniel tried to cut his own hair.

Giac covered the red leather sofa in black biro (but I have managed to get it off with hairspray!)

ohhhhhhhhhhh life is exciting! Razz

Hey Jessica! Where have u been???? I miss you! When are u coming to Rome???? It feels like as soon as I met you I lost you! Sad Me and Claire are gradually getting to know one another, it is so sad that you are not here too. Crying or Very sad . The site is really taking off, I'm so glad Claire set it up!

I got a new pc but it gives me migraines, so now I am sitting in my sunglasses even though it is dark ouside, coz it is the only way I can go on-line. (Anyway Giuli look more handsome when I have my sunglasses on; (my beer glasses are even more effective!!!)

Currently I am doing searches on exercises for thighs! I am determined to look like a supermodel on the beach this summer. But it is pissing me off that I have spent 2 months at the gym and all my measurements have gone up. G says I look better, but he would, (he knows what's good or him!) so now it is project 'thigh busting'! I know I have to watch what I eat, but I do...I look at it all the time hee hee.

kisses Very Happy

oh and the latest tragedy is that we have o car because after some idiot put petrol instead of diesel the car is ca-put. We've already had it fixed twice, and this third time they are asking 700. Oh my life is one big tragedy................ this is why I have to turn to drink....... hic. Razz

I've read that too, but it doesn't explain why my thighs, hips and waist are an inch bigger... Sad it is very de-motivating!

just got internet back now...not had it since monday and have been going crazy fighting with 'Wind' in the end i had to buy a new modem but I dont think that was the problem, it is a long and boring story, but basically they don't seem to know their arse from their elbow!!!
had a nice time this week with Giuliano off work. went to the gym, went to the zoo, met some pink friends in the centre for lunch. but yesterday Daniel developed scarlet fever, and so that has put an end to any fun. and here they treat it like he has some very dangerous about panic city! He is supposed to be going to the zoo on monday with his school but he can't go...and it is 19e down the drain.boooooooooooooooooooooo1
got all 3 at home, matteo was supposed to go to scouts, but said he wasn't feeling very well. I am going crazy..they are screaming like maniacs.... got to go and break up the fights! affraid
