Unfortunately I caught the cold which my husband has had since Christmas Eve. Thankfully I didn’t get it as bad as him however it is still unpleasant and unwanted. Through the night and this morning I felt particularly unwell and decided to take action and fight back against this cold.
I phoned my husband from bed as he was down stairs in the morning around 8am with the instruction of a lemon and honey drink and he sweetly brought me the hot drink upstairs.
After my hot lemon and honey I tried to have a little more sleep as through the night I hadn’t slept much but had done two loads of clothes washing.
Later I decided that I would get up and steam my face with hot water and a few drops of Olbas oil and try and rid myself of the pain in my face which always seems to happen when I have a cold, followed by paracetamol. I used my small Pampered Chef batter bowl which worked well.
Later when I was ready I thought a good idea would be to do something relaxing and decided to begin colouring in my Christmas present colouring book.
Every four hours I had my painkillers and later on in the evening I steamed my face with Olbas oil in hot water which seems to of done the trick and enjoyed a fruit smoothie which I thought would help my body fight this cold which is most unwanted.
My hope is tomorrow both my husband and I will be feeling back to normal. I have thankfully felt better as the day has advanced and think an early-ish night is a good idea.
Happy Tuesday Friends!
