Dinner is not a Winner...

Morning sickness in the southern hemisphere seems to make an appearance after dark. Particularly after the evening meal. To combat this I have placed a self imposed ban on dinner.

....however last night I was a guest at my SIL's. She is a fabulous cook. It made "not eating" impossible.
At first I was sensible. Just a little grazing on salad. A few morsels of chicken. A light drizzle of Dijon. All was well with the world.
But.
Then.
...She rocked out with dessert.

A tray of individual, mini Pavlova's. What the hell? I don't even like Pavlova I told myself as I devoured the fluffy foe. No sooner had I dusted Meringue off my lips when my stomach sniggered "Sucker!!" Uh-oh.

The car ride home was comfortable for about 25 seconds. The more I bounced around in the passenger seat the worse my stomach churned. Hurtling along the freeway I threw a wild look to my husband and choked "Ohhh...I think....I'm gonna...be.... (picture me desperately rummaging through my purse for a tissue...a napkin..!) SICK!

..In the nick of time I found a stray paper giftbag and, well, filled it.

"I spewed on my sleeve" I told Peter. I was much prouder than I ought be. Oh, Pavlova. Wretched Pavlova. Curse you, in six seasonal fruity flavours.

Evening sickness sounds like a nuisance. Hopefully it will pass soon.

I'm not in the southern hemisphere, but I do live in the south... maybe that's why my 'morning' sickness runs in the late afternoon through the evening and night. Mornings are fine though. I'm a little worried because I haven't been nauseous much lately - it used to be every day! I know, I'm nuts - who wants to be nauseous?! It's just a very reassuring symptom.

Hope you are able to resist further temptation and save yourself some retching!

I laughed out loud at your statement "I was much prouder than I should have been". It's so true.. in the beginning, even the disgusting symptoms bring us joy. Hope your evening sickness stays managable.
