Oh poor Hally, you are not feeling well but sorry, I did get a laugh out of this posting.  I can understand how you just want the drink and not have to give a cooking lesson right at this time.  Get well soon.  :-* :-*  Poor DH is obviously only trying to help.

Just made it through a cold myself. I was away working at the time and therefore couldn't make this. Returned home and carried on as usual (as us mum's tend to do). DH now has it and of course he's moping around telling me how sick he is and that I really don't undertstand how he feels? Honestly is there anything worse than a sick husband?  ???

Jd - dh has been an angel looking after me. Hate being sick such a waste of time. Having cam at a sleepover has been quit good, he normally wakes me evdy 20mins to check onme, bless his heart :( he means well.

Twitterpad, i steamed on and on until saturday when i was so weak i could hardly walk, so rested up yesterday and feel a bit better today.  So will stay in bed or on sofa today and hopefully feel good tomorrow,  but i will be sensible and wont be at the gym until maybe thursday.

Get better twitterpad

Guess it is that time of year which is why this drink always gets bumped around now.  Resting up is the way to go but so hard for a woman.

Cold and flu season has arrived early in Sydney this year so I am making my first batch of this for DH. Together with a bit of rest, it really seems to help.

I don't like the taste of cardomom either Uni but I use them in this and I can drink it quite easily.  It is a taste you have to get used to but I've never heard anyone say they can't sip it.

This is one that was given to me years ago by a friend and we've used this remedy ever since . .  

1 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
1 Tablespoon honey
1 capful  whisky (read that as a generously good slurp!)

Combine all ingredients, heat gently until it's just about to boil.

Drink (sip it!) as hot as possible . .

Great taken just before bed . . very soothing . . ;D
