I am NOT getting a cold! Not now.




Five days to go before our opening night of Abigail's Party and I come down with a stinky cold! Grrr! I refuse to have a cold for the run of the play. So far I have concocted a delicious fruity drink of fresh oranges, blueberries and ground cloves to top up on the vit C. To relieve the catarrhal symptoms I have been out and got some real licorish and ginger root and camomile tea and peppermint essential oil for a steam inhalation.

Also been adding lots of garlic to my food too. Feeling healthier already - even if I do stink of garlic.

Bah its always when you least want one that they jump on you, Hopefully its just a 24 hour thing.
Sounds like you are taking all the correct steps just make sure you drink plenty of water to wash it through your system !

Oh no - this sort of thing always happens to me before something important. Have you tried making ginger tea? Simmer a bit of chopped up ginger root in water,add a bit of cinnamon stick if you like, strain, & sweeten with honey. Warms you through nicely.

thanks for the tips Dean and Karen. I will do both today despite feeling a bit better.

Even if you are poorly on the night Doctor Theatre will sort you out - get well soon.

French Fancy - you know Dr Theatre? Dr Theatre is fantastic - a miracle worker no less. I am actually feeling a lot better due to my efforts in trying to cure myself. :0)
