I've been fighting a chesty cold for a couple of weeks. On Monday night I appeared to go down with a bug into the bargain. I was cold/hot and utterly knackered and had no interest in food yesterday so I decided to listen to my body and give it what it wanted. For breakfast it wanted nothing but more sleep but I decided I could have a temperature so paracetamol had to feature. So:

Breakfast - half a cup of tea, half a dry cracker
Elevenses - Cup of tea, other half of cracker
Lunch - cup of tea and marmite sandwich (Haven't had one for years.)
Afternoon - More tea. Grapes
Evening - scrambled egg, bread and butter and two grilled tomatoes

I'm hoping to resume a normal diet today. It's started well with tea and toast. Woo hoo :D:D

    I don't think it is so much of a strange diet, as you said Sticky you started listening to your body(marmite :mrgreen: sorry, yuk) plenty of fluids and light food, I'm sure we all have strange diets when we are feeling poorly. Here's hoping you are on the up, that is a good start this morning hopefully it will continue, keep warm, hydrated and get well soon..................Marie xx
    Smile a while and while you smile
    smile another smile and soon there
    will be miles and miles of smiles
    just because you smiled I wish your
    day is full of Smiles

    When I'm feeling yucky I like plain cream crackers, or a bowl of dry Rice Krispies, both accompanied by cups of tea and glasses of water. As I get better I like poached fish, more tea and water, and maybe a few grapes. You were wise to listen, Sticky, our bodies tell us all sorts of things once we learn to listen to them. I know when I'm truly flaring because all I want is plain Hula Hoops and full-fat coke. I once lost three stone on that diet. :? DD

    PS Are you feeling better now? I hope so.

    Thanks, everyone. Today was normal in every way. I knew I was really ill yesterday when I refused Mr SW's offer of a glass with my strange meal :shock: Oddly enough, even my 2 week old cold seems to have improved. I'm coughing less.

    Craving, Barbara? Is there anything you'd like to share with us :lol:

    Bless you, Mike, I certainly do need to be in top condition. Christmas will involve Midnight Mass, my son's single malt collection and a 7 yr old :madnoel: Not a good combination :areindeer:

    I'm well on the mend now, though, thanks.

    Thank you, Barbara, I am.

    I love the emoticons too.

    Alas, we're going there not them coming here so I shall have the delights of the sofa-bed for 4 nights :madnoel:
