The only cure for the common cold...

  • 1 bag of Bassetts Jelly Babies
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • half a bottle of cheap, shop soiled, own brand scotch whisky
  • honey to taste

Pour boiling water over the sliced lemon and add some honey. Put a finger of whisky, that’s a horizontal finger not a vertical finger, into a glass and add honey. Top up with the hot lemony water and stir. Sit on the sofa drinking the medicine and eating the Jelly Babies watching Frasier Season 3 on DVD. When, and only when, you feel up to digesting solid food, have pizza for lunch and spaghetti bolognese for tea.
