The Black household has been smitten with all sorts of nasty germs this last week. We’ve been sniffling, sneezing and coughing our little hearts out. My cold has even developed into full blown man flu! Thankfully I had booked a couple of days off work anyway, but all Fionnuala and I seem to have done is drive from one appointment to the next in our ever packed schedules. No respite or time to retire to bed and sleep off the sickness.
Hannah’s school bus broke down at the start of the week so Fionnuala has been shuttling her back and forth to school in Belfast. Busy mothers don’t have time to feel sick or in any way sorry for themselves but when I asked her today had she any ideas for the blog she suggested I ask for your common cold remedies. The more bizarre the better, preferably those passed down through the mists of time by doting grandmothers.
