And then I had a cold....

So, my first cold of the season has arrived. Sore throat, fuzzy head, snuffly nose. Blagh. I know it was only a matter of time, but really Mr. Cold, couldn't we have gone one winter without meeting?

I guess instead of moaning. moping and generally feeling sorry for myself, I am going to take some time out for ME and indulge, in the only way you can when you feel ghastly.

1. Stay Snuggled in Bed

...for as long as possible, preferably with a good book and a hot water bottle.

2. Drink Hot Lemon and Honey soothe your throat. Trust me - it always tastes better when made by someone else (and what a treat?!) And even better, drink it while snuggled up in bed.

3. Bubble Bath
...and make sure there are lots and lots of bubbles. Maybe some candles. Oh and your hot lemon honey drink.

So now I have my evening sorted, and this cold doesn't seem like such a burden, more like a reason to make myself take a little time out for me, and enjoy a little pampering. Lovely.

How do you keep cheerful when you're feeling blue? 
Do you have any tried and tested remedies that work wonders on colds?

Please share, I would love to know...x

  2. I'm sick at the moment too. It's no fun at all!
    I would love to be snuggled up in bed :(
    Honey & lemon drinks are great, they really do help and aloe vera tissues are the best thing ever invented!

  3. Aww I love the picture of the kitty in bed! hehe.

    That sucks your sick! My suggestion is to take Vitamin C! I started getting a sore throat a few days ago, and I doubled up on my Vit C right away.. and no more sore throat! and no cold!

    Hope you feel better soon! Rest lots!
