Coughs and sneezes

We are only into the second week of term and the obligatory coughs and colds are starting to appear.  I have spent most of the day sipping water to keep my throat from drying out, while there is an increased need to keep a box of tissues to hand.

As a child, I was always made a hot drink of honey and orange to help soothe sore throats especially just before bed time.  There is always something comforting about the familiar.

In an effort to ensure I am getting enough vitamin C, I chopped up one of the remaining oranges from the fruit bowl into segments to eat.  If I had any honey, I probably would have attempt to make myself drink.  But this has to be the next best thing.

I have to confess that am not a big fruit eater.  I tend to eat fruit out of necessity rather than enjoyment.

To get a retro feel to these photos, I have again used one of my favourite online tools – Polaroin, to get familar polaroid look to this pictures.
