    Okay hubby just asked me if I'd like to go to his friends' house for a few drinks tonight. I do have a bottle of WW rose wine in the fridge. The entire bottle is 24 syns.

    I've only used 2 syns today, so I do have half of those syns left. If I make it up tomorrow, would it be okay to do that?

    I can't answer the question on your syns, but i tend to stick to bacardi and diet coke rather than wine as it's less calories :)

    Actually, your Bacardi has the exact same amount of syns as a glass of my wine lol. 4 syns each.

    OMG really? I didn't bother to work it out, i don't count the syns when i have a drink, just thought wine had a lot more calories than bacardi and diet ;)

    Mandy, I'd say thats a good plan, or you could have it mixed with diet lemonade and stretch it out further, or else you could just flexi syn it..... have a good night x

    I drank four glasses, at four syns each, so I only went 3 syns over my limit. I don't think that'll make too much of a difference. And I did mix it with 7up Free, so it went further :D
    Good night had by all, only I woke up this morning with a stuffy nose and a sore throat. Think I've finally caught the cold my baby girl had during the week. I wonder if Lemsips have a syn value...

    Never heard of that. Is it available in Ireland, I wonder! 12 syn wine sounds delish to me!

    It's a low alcohol wine. Youre only getting half the alcholo so its only half the syns. Id rather just have the real deal and half of it tbh.

    Pleased you had a canny night, thats the beauty of SW, you can have a normal life and still lose weight :)

    I think lemsips do have syns :(, better off with a warm lemonade and a couple of paracetamols,

    hope you feel better soon x

    Yes I'm in Ireland, I get it in Dunnes. The red isn't that nice but the white is quite nice!

    I sometimes drink this if my syns are running low. I'm usually a red drinker however I prefer the white with lots of ice when I have the first cape stuff. I know it's lower in alcohol hoverer it still has a higher alcohol content than lager.

    Lemsips have syns. Sorry :(
    You could always try blackcurrent squash made with hot water, or hot water with fresh lemon juice in it.
    I find ice cubes help too, or I suck on my dds sugar free ice pops at 1 syn each!
