I have a cold. Nursing it is a serious business involving lots of hot water with lemon and honey and a lot of reading and DVD watching. I have so far read Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher and Love Letters by Katie Fforde (one needs fluff at such times) and watched, My Sister's Keeper, four episodes of Doctor Who and three of Cranford. Love the BBC! Going to watch more Cranford soon.
Also have had cough lollies, chocolate, juice, a banana, lots of toast. Highly recommend the chocolate if you're feeling poorly! And the complete self-indulgence. The cold seems to affect me less badly if I rest while my body fights it. Though staying in bed or in an armchair for hours does get annoying after a while.
