Milk and butter...

I just can't believe it... I'm feeling like getting cold or flu! I hate being sick, especially in the summer :( I have a small idea how this has happened. Yesterday it was raining like hell!!! and I had to go somewhere. I was waiting for the rain to stop, but in Ireland when it once started to rain it won't stop for a long time ;) When I got back I was completely soaked. To be honest, only my underwear survived and was dry... Since then I feel weird - headache, tired, powerless and generally down.

I'm not very quick to grab pills, antibiotics etc. I prefer to treat myself with old, dependable natural medicine - my Granny's wisdom. One thing that always works for me is hot milk. But not normal milk. You have to add a tablespoon of unsalted butter and 2 tablespoons of (brown) sugar to a cup of boiling milk. Stir well and drink hot. It doesn't look delicious but i's quite good :) Some people make a 'sour' version - adding pressed garlic instead of sugar, personally I never tried it. So, whenever feeling like you're geting cold, flu etc. remember my little advice - especially when having cough, sore throat or feeling cold.
It's weird giving cold/flu advice in the middle of summer... I just hope that I will be well soon. Hate being sick! And of course it's bank holiday weekend now :'( Instead of going for a day trip with my Hubby, or just shopping, I'm stuck at home. Although when I look outside - I would rather be inside with this weather.

  1. This may seem old fashioned, but whenever I feel a cold comming on, I wear a thin cotton scarf around my neck.It seems to speed recovery up with me.
    Anyway, I hope you feel better real soon :)
