Hope you aren't feeling too sick ILB - brandy works too :-)) :-)) :-))  Put your feet up (if you can) relax and stay warm.

Thanks very much both of you!  :-* :-* :-*
Grace seems to be better today but I'm feeling lousy with my head, shoulders and glands all aching and generally feeling pretty lousy.
Anyway have just done a grocery shop and stopped by the bottle shop for some whiskey (thanks for the tip re brandy JD, however apart from wine I don't have much else - lol).
So I'll get stuck into that tonight, along with the garlic tablets and anything else I can find!

Sorry to hear about your lurgie - how about some of that Pedro Ximinez - slightly higher alcohol content and will sooth the thraot too !!

How are you feeling today ILB?  Lucky it is a public holiday to give you an extra day to rest. :-* :-*

OMG how good is this!! The dreaded lurgie has hit the house. Miss 2 earaches with it (no sleep for me) Mr 4 has chest infection, Mr 15 down with the lurgie and on top of that I have it too....now I have this...ahhh so good. I have it in my thermo mug just following me around the house and topping it up as I go - feel like I can actually function somewhat since I started sipping on it. Huge round of applause for this conversion :)

Hi JD.
Sorry - had completley miss your post.  ???
We managed to avoid the cold/flu last time. We both had a day or two feeling pretty average and then bouced right back.  But think that it'll be back out tomorrow!! DD has now come down with it (she was supposed to be at daycare today and her Dad pick her up for a couple of days - but this afternoon shes been to unwell to go anywhere today.) How do you think getting a 3YO to drink this will go??  ??? ???

Well if they aren't I will be ;) ;) ;) ;) - I'm just loving this drink. Actually gives me quite a pick up. Nothing a few days of rest in the warm won't fix for the others along with plenty of Vit C. Just read somewhere that fresh pineapple is better for Vit C intake than oranges as it contains bromine which is really good for breaking up mucus and congestion. They all eat fresh pineapple better than oranges. I have one pineapple here and will be off to the market tomorrow morning for more.

Who cares if you're sick or not this is so yummy!!!! 

I do have a sore throat / congestion though in my defence but omg if I'd known how good this tasted I think I would've made it earlier!!!!

See how it goes with soothing and clearing up congestion.
