COLDS .... guess it's the weather for them
COLDS .... guess it's the weather for them. None of us like to have a cold, but there is not much we can do when they hit. Thought that I was SAFE from colds this year, but not to be.
Bring on the paracetamol, cold & Flu tablets, nasal spray .... anything that provides relief.
I have to go to a 50th birthday tonight. Now, don't get me wrong, I really really want to go, but all I feel like doing right now is up in rugging up in my bed, warm and comfy and either sleeping or watching TV. I do find that if I stay in bed and keep warm, I seem to get better a lot quicker these days.
I like drinking hot lemon and honey drinks when I have a cold, as they really seem to help. There is something comforting about this and I love the taste.
I also find that wearing a beanie keeps my head warm and keeps my whole body a lot warmer. Somehow doing these things seems to help me get better more quickly. They say that you lose a lot of heat out of the top of your head, so I figure that the beanie has to help.
A nice warm socks always seems to help as well. I have been wanting to knit myself a pair of socks lately. I've never tried doing this before, but I'm sure that I could have a go and manage to do it. Hand knitted socks look so nice and I am inspired by Anna and her numerous pairs of socks, all hand knitted by her. Hopefully I'll be posting a photo of a pair that I've knitted soon.
All I can say is that I hope this cold goes away soon. I can deal with life a lot easier without it.
What do you do to help you get better quickly when you have a cold??
