Tis the season...(to get colds and flu)...

In case you hadn't realised from the title of this post, I am currently tucked up in bed suffering from some kind of lurgy/man flu/black death type illness. I'm really glad I made it past Christmas before getting it but knowing I have to go back to work tomorrow makes it all the more worse!

Hubby has rescued me in my time of need by providing me with all the essentials to make me feel better and doing all the house chores (he's always good at doing those anyway).

Firstly, and most importantly is to get stocked up (and dosed up) with nose spray, vapour rub, ibuprofen and hot lemon (delightful) but also those little things that make being ill just that little bit bearable. The first thing I do, despite how ill I'm feeling is have a shower and wash and cleanse my face. My Ultrabland is wonderful for removing that sicky feeling and I love how my face feels refreshed after. 

Secondly, I grab a nail polish and paint my nails. I usually go for something bright to lighten my mood and even though its not the most seasonal of choices, I picked Watermelon by Essie. There's something about looking down at my bright nails that picks me up.

Finally and most importantly, I grab my tablet and get reading. Normally I'm too busy in the day to sit down and read blogs and find new reads so I take this rare opportunity to sit down and find some lovely new blogs.

So if you're reading this, please feel free to pop your blog link in the comments! I might be here a while!



  1. Aww no - you have it too? I am currently on day 8 of my flu :( Got antibiotics from the doc last week but to be honest, they've done absolutely nothing. I was gutted that I missed out on most of Christmas Day with the kids but I could barely lift my head from the pillow at the time! Lol.

    Hope you're feeling better soon :)

  2. Ah a lot of people seem to be getting ill. I'm just glad I was okay on Christmas Day. I've been making so many hot honey drinks these past few days. I might try painting my nails too! I've never thought of doing that but it could be a good way to brighten my mood! Get well soon! :D

  3. Oh poor you! I seem to have managed to avoid catching any sort of lurgy so far, fingers crossed it stays away for as long as possible!! Hope you feel better soon! xx
