Resting up

19 July 2016

I went home sick today with a sore throat, achey limbs and the beginnings of a headache.  On my way home I picked up some special tissues (eucalyptus with peppermint and aloe vera!) and stopped into the Vietnamese shop for a giant chicken noodle soup. Now I'm taking it easy and being extra kind to myself.

Little acts make all the difference when you're sick - like changing your sheets before a big afternoon nap, putting on fresh pyjamas and having dinner made for you. I can highly recommend this soup that's packed with veggies, chilli and has raw garlic sprinkled on top, which my friend Sarah says is great for fighting colds. And what's a sick day without a new magazine? I'm flipping through Heirloom Recipes :)
