Blah de blah de blah. Even I can’t make a snotty nose into a scrumptious little thrill.

But if the worst comes to the worst,  choose a pretty flowery tin and fill it with supplies for survival: vintage hankies, paper tissues, Vicks balm, Karvol capsules (Oh I know they are for kids, but really thay have the most soothing smell when sprinkled on a hankie),  eucalyptus and lavender oils, paracetamol and vitamin c.

Then put it on your bedside, don a silly  bed jacket and refuse to move until you can speak without that hideous nasal twang.

    Only Alison May in her beautiful way of looking at everything could come up with this. This is lovely, Alison. Certainly not blah de blah…

    Ooh – you have the same table as me! I also have had the first rotten head cold of the season since Tuesday. Getting better now, but almost sorry I am after seeing this wonderful idea! Might just make one anyway for those I'm sure to have given my germs too! Yet another idea to die for!

    How lovely, next time myself, Babes or the Princess has a cold I will indeed do that. Just not sure about Babes wearing a silly, pretty bed jacket!

    What a wonderful idea. I have my dreadful meds just piled on the bedside table. I think I will search the resale shop today for a pretty tin.
