Chicken soup for the...

...cold.

As soon as I posted this morning I did some body brushing and then had a very hot shower to clear my sinuses. By that time my little lady was hungry so I fed her and decided to nap, then we woke up 2 hours later!

Since we were all feeling so terrible, I decided to make Scotch Broth, the recipe was handed down from my great grandmother and I have fond memories of my mum making it when I was a little girl. We still have it as a starter every Christmas day. It's so simple to make and incredibly nourishing which makes it perfect when you feel unwell. I had a lovely big bowl with some sourdough bread for my dinner tonight and I feel better already.

So, how's the princessing? Today's walk was a much shorter 2 miles, it was pretty hard going, especially as my wee girl decided to scream half way round! I'm determined to keep going, even with my red nose, and today I have managed to achieve 15 of my targets. I did cheat with the water by having it hot with honey and lemon to soothe my poor sore throat (it really helped and meant I avoided extra cups of tea!)

I hope that tomorrow we will be fighting fit and ready to get back on the challenge!

So here's the day in pictures:
