cornishware cup of tea and yorkshire tea biscuits ...

I am feeling a bit sorry for myself today, I have a sore throat and muggy head, three of my colleagues at work have colds at the moment, so it would be no surprise if I am coming down with one. Just got back from food shopping at Sainsburys where I spotted these 'new' biscuits, I bought two treats for myself today, and these were one of them; popped into Boots to redeem a £5 No 7 voucher on a new blusher to put some colour into my cheeks and to stock up on cold/flu tablets and throat sweets! Before coming home I popped into a table sale being held at my local parish hall to meet up with two of my friends Fiona and Jackie who were selling their very professionally hand-crafted cards for all occasions there, I came home with a mixture of birthday and Christmas ones, so I am very pleased.

I love cards, maybe take a look at Joanna from Higglety Pigglety, Michele from Cowboys and Custard and Ginny from The Flour Loft blog to discover some lovely cards which they make.

Hi Louise,
Sorry to hear you're not feelig too great. It's that colds time of year isn't it. A hot toddy i find works.. my own variation is chammomile tea (seems to really soothe the throat).. with some honey, some freshly squeezed lemon juice and a wee drop of a good highland malt whiskey. It makes me feel better. I only add the whiskey at bed time though.. don't want to be drunk and disorderly in charge of a sewing machine!
Hope you feel better soon.

Hello Louise,

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your kind comments. I love both your blogs and have spent so much time this morning browing round the sites and links that half the day seems to have gone already! This is the danger of Blogland don't you think?

Anyway, must dash I have whisky marmalade to make for next seasons guests - so I'll have a wee dram for you while I'm stirring the oranges and wish your cold and foggy head goes away pretty quickly. :-)

Hi Louise
Sorry to hear you are feeling grotty.. I am sure you already know this but if you take ecchinacea in the winter it really boosts the immune system..
Yorkshire tea is my fave.. and those scrummy biscuits though they never last long with a good dunk!
Tastes all the better in a cornishware mug!
Hope you feel better v soon.
