    Thanks heaps for all your suggestions!

    I think i will do the "i have a headache and drinking will only make it worse"... I'm sure i can pull that one off, maybe take a few panadols too...

    I also thought I could chuck a sicky that day, but I NEVER take sick days so they would get suss about that.

    I work in a very small office of 6 people who know me very well and i think would get a bit suss about my odd behaviour, but if i just complain of a headache i think that would be the end of it as i do get headaches alot...

    Thanks again everyone!

    You will be surprised at what you can get away with. We have drinks every Friday at work and I'm usually one of the first to get stuck in

    I was wondering how I would hide it. I made up the lamest excuses but no one guessed. When my boss sent out an email telling everyone I was expecting everyone was surprised.

    Couldnt agree more - find it so sad that as a society it is now considered weird and not normal to not drink alcohol !!

    As for the OP - I like the antibiotics excuse most!

    I'm not pregnant, either! But it's just annoying.

    So the old `I'm allergic to champagne' is a great one.

    Except of course when they offer you something else instead
    My DF has a reaction to champers too!
    Thank God we don't want a traditional wedding, I couldn't make him even have a sip, knowing how badly he reacts. I think I might buy some coke in glass bottles for our photos...
    OT much? Plenty of great ideas in this thread I'd probably go with ABs though, not many people can argue with that one!

    I'd go with the antibiotics! I did this last year when I was pregnant, except it was every friday at work, people would finish Early and have drinks!

    I had the exact same problem a few weeks ago - unfortunately for me I was always the "life of the party" so was much more difficult for me!

    I ended up saying I had to pick my mum up from the airport straight after work and didn't want to risk being over....

    On another occassion, I got a workmate (who knows I was preg) to pure herself a glass of orange juice and swap it with me when I put my champagne and orange down...worked a treat!

    Hope this helps
