Honey and Lemon cocktails

My bedside table looks like a jumble sale as it’s untidily cluttered with cold remedies.

Vic √
Toilet roll (no tissues) √
Throat lozenges  √
Decongestants  √
Menthol eucalyptus √
Cough medicine √
Lemsip with honey √ (drunk)
Bin for soiled tissues √

I am extremely careful with OTC medicines, reading labels, warnings and ingredients.
The cough medicine does not contain paracetamol so I am OK to take that with my lemsip to which I have added honey as I woke up at 4 am thinking I was swallowing glass, my throat was that sore.

I’ve stayed indoors for most of the day (boring), but we did go for a walk along the prom this afternoon as the sun came out and I wrapped up as if it was minus ten degrees!
It was nice to get out for an hour and helped to clear my head, even if it was only temporary.

Now I’m more or less settled for the night, the nose is running a private marathon, the chest is doing erratic press ups when I cough, and everyone dives for cover when I sneeze. To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I felt this rough, but it’s only a cold so I should be feeling better in a couple of days.
Hubby is wrapped up like a kaleidoscopic mummy as he was cold in bed last night so has one of my crocheted blankets, a duvet and a throwover tonight. I’ve got the duvet and the dog and already sweating buckets.
Like me he’s got a loo roll and bin by the bed, and has been dosing himself up with vitamin C this week. He has a sore throat and a runny nose though, so as expected, I am not flavour of the day. He refers Fishermen’s Friends to clear his sinuses, so they are on hand too.
What a pair we are, but at least we’re compatible!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    oh no! hope you feel better soon. Vic and lozenges are a must for getting better. another thing is tea with lemon, honey and cinnamon before bed.
