    Well,

    As the subject line says really. We went to friends' last night for a Chinese and I seemed to be up most of the night getting rid of it. On the plus side because I was in such a mess, my lovely husband cleared it all up, bless him, and he had to get up at 0530 to get a train to London for work.

    I'm so lucky to have him. Feel grotty today though :puke: :sleep:

    UPDATE: Apparently I have "bacillus cereus" otherwise known as the "fried rice disease" - it's when the Chinese don't treat the rice properly and reheat it and stuff. Anyway the good news is it's only a 48 hour bug so I can go back to school tomorrow. At least, I THINK that's good news :rotfl:

    Thank you everyone for being so nice. I'm disinfecting and washing everything today but I think the washing machine has just broken. It's been on rinse for an hour and a half :rotfl:

    Debbie, you sound like my husband! He wants to ring environmental health!! My doctor asked me for the name of the takeaway... but it wasn't for any "reporting" reason he just wants to avoid it himself :rotfl:

    It's not one we normally go to. It didn't even taste very nice :puke:

    Was anyone else ill? Or did you all eat something different?

    If others were ill it may well be a good thing to report it. If its just you, its maybe something you don't want to pursue.

    Glad to hear you are feeling better today though.

    Rice always needs to be rehated till its piping hot as its a very common cause of food poisoning otherwise :?

    Fine if its cold, but its if its not reheated till its piping hot can cause problems. A lot of people don't realise how dodgy rice is if not reheated thorughly. Can make you really ill :puke: I speak from experience :roll:

    Well, my husband and Alastair had egg fried rice and they both had a minor version of the runs.

    I had chicken fried rice and had all out both-ends yuckness.

    Abi had seaweed with hers and was absolutely fine.

    Anyway environmental health just rang and want to know name of takeaway etc - they're off to investigate H&S...

    I used to have it both but I heated it 'til it was exploding around the microwave so I think it was pretty safe. Who woulda thought rice could be so lethal :shakehead:

    I never knew that about rice. Think I'll be avoiding it from the chinese takeaway during the rest of my pregnancy, will get noodles or chips instead :shock:
