Thanks for all your lovely get well wishes! I really hope I've headed this thing off by taking some time off now. I spent yesterday in bed and I'm doing the same today. I'm coughing a lot and my ears are 'full' which is making me dizzy. I'm taking cold and flu tablets, Benylin and drinking loads of hot honey and lemon.
I also made a pot of the fastest chicken soup ever! I'd made some chicken stock overnight in the Crockpot on Monday night. So I chucked it in a pot with a handful of frozen sweetcorn, some cooked shredded chicken (from chicken legs I cooked at the weekend) and a crushed up rice noodle nest. Rice noodles are cooked within minutes in hot water or stock. Wee bit of seasoning and I had a pot of soup in minutes.
There's something really comforting about chicken soup when you're not well. It's all I've eaten for 2 days but it feels nourishing.
