Hot lemon drink made with fresh lemon juice, with honey, and a little acceptance that it'll be gone within a week.

Brown sauce, liberally applied to egg & chips....

A good strong "hot toddy", but none of this modern trendy nonsense with herbs and sh*t......... Half a mug of strong whiskey, half a mug of hot water and a tsp of sugar.

Then head off to bed as the alcohol thins the blood and the nose inflammation starts to calm down. Sleep sitting up slightly, so that the PND (post nasal drip) goes to your stomach instead of onto your chest, sure it'll give you terrible wind and probably make you feel sick, but at least it won't go to your chest and linger around for 6 weeks. Even if you can't sleep like this, missing a nights sleep is better than a chest infection. It takes me 1 night to get past the worst of a cold.

I didn't know it in the sixties bunny but I do know it . I love and adore fry ups , apart from eggs . I don't tolerate shit cafes whatsoever . Very certain on this , very firm. Might saunter to a lovely one I Know in Ewell tomorrow, when I get up. Breakfast at 1159, such decadence . I'm easily pleased you know.

Don't often get colds...didn't get one over this winter and spring so far. One time I started a horrible cold and I ate 8 cloves of raw garlic.Killed the cold stone dead.Didn't do my belly much good though.

Bombay bad boy pot noodle, works everytime.


Hell of a funny story about the said Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodle.

A couple of years ago I was doing a Wedding Disco in a country house hotel in North Wales. Was talking to the Groom and Best Man later on in the evenings proceedings and as we were having our conversation the Groom kept sniffing and turning his nose up.

He says to me "You know summat, these country hotels round here always have that farmyard type of stink"

Indeed, this hotel was surrounded by fields with Sheep, Cows and Pigs all in their humble habitat! Also it had been a scorching hot July day and the hotel had no air conditioning, so all the windows were open.

But I didn't have the heart to tell him that this professional Disc Jockey he had hired and paid good monetary rates for on the biggest day of his life, had actually consumed a Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodle before he left home and was putting a very serious effort in, to not defaecate himself for most of the evening!

I know I am an animal, I await the girls' backlash and I will go to hell, for letting the cattle take the blame, but them Bombay Bad Boy's are something else?

** It is a true story, btw**

I've never eaten a Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodle. But I have consumed 2 cartons of sugar free sweets in as many minutes ( more than once I'm sorry to admit) and I'm guessing the effects are similar.

Aldi cold relief worked for me last time - just paracetamol with caffeine.

Oh lordy.... that sorbitol effect.... why do they print the ingredients and possibles so small?

One tin of mints n I thought I was turning inside out!


Back on track.... fresh ginger, but use ground turmeric... a level teaspoon to a mug. At least 2 tablespoons o honey and a BIG dod o ginger (that's a valid Scottish measurement... a big dod)

Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodle.


Every two years I have an urge for a pot noodle, and a Bombay Bad Boy is always my first choice. They always make my mouth sting, but the sheer joy of eating something that tasty, even though it has no qualitative benefits whatsover, can't be missed. Thankfully I've never rubbed my eyes after squeezing out the chilli sauce.

To be honest by 7am I had decided that it was clearly terminal so must therefore be man flu... Will I survive? Who knows...


It's been proven that women have stronger immune systems: http://www.livescience.com/16268-female-immune-system-stronger-males-genetics.html , but the jury's still out as to whether man flu exists: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/man-flu-cold-real-thing-scientists-men-report-research-health-a7473821.html v https://www.pushdoctor.co.uk/blog/is-man-flu-real

Yes Roxy, I've always thought an ordinary head cold a good thing, because your body's system is being cleansed of impurities that have built up and therefore you're in good working order. I've only had flu once in my life and I felt like I was dying. I drink hot toddies for sore throats...whiskey, honey and lemon with cloves too.

A good cardio session in the gym, followed by some maximum strength cold & flu remedy, followed by a (very!) early night... always works for me!
