The good, the bad and the comfy

Back in March, I became ill with a very bad cold which turned into a very persistent form of Bronchitis. Despite getting antibiotics from the doctors, it never fully went away and now I feel like it has now returned in full force. So, I have been vegging out on my settee since Thursday with the hopes that a bit of rest will help me to recover. (I've learned my lesson this time and will be going to the doctors tonight, not four weeks later like last time...)

I think that, when you are ill, it is important to rest - I am definitely guilty of working when I should be getting better, which obviously prolongs the problem! - and I have found that three little parts to a 'get well' remedy (if you like) can help you feel that little bit better.

The Good...


We've all heard how Vitamin C is good for fighting colds, but I think the refreshing taste alone makes you feel that little bit more awake. On Saturday, DC wanted to go to the market so I went along too for some fresh air and we bought lots of fruit, along with some fruit juice from Tesco. Instead of the usual oj, I chose a tropical juice which boasts a good dose of vitamins too - every little helps!

The Bad...


Of course, sometimes you just need a bit of comfort food! At the minute, I've been wanting ice-cream; the cool creaminess seems to help sooth my throat while the chocolatey cornets tastes so yummy! I doubt this adds any nutritional value, but it just goes down so well...

And The Comfy...


Pajama bottoms, check! Monkey socks, check! Hoody, check!  I love getting cosy in my slobs most nights of the week, but it just seems all the more better when you're ill! My latest hoody, thanks to @kidd81, is *My Hangover Hoody! Ok, I might not be hungover, but still the softness yet baggy-ness makes me feel so comfy. If you're illness does happen to be self inflicted (too many Pimms over the summer, maybe?) then this is definitely something you'd need.




So now, the only thing left to do is drag your quilt to the settee, settle down and watch a marathon of your favourite television programmes or films. My viewing of choice - Gossip Girl, Made in Chelsea, Desperate Housewives and Glee,  although you can't beat The Hills (with Lauren Conrad), anything 80s or any films starring Leonardo Dicaprio... this may not make your cold/sickness/hangover disappear, but you'll feel as comfy as possible!

*P.S. You can buy your own Hangover Hoody from here! It really is the comfiest hoody I own!
