Homemade remedies, cleaning windows and Crazy Daisy

If you didn't know me you would think I was a two pack a day smoker with this rotten cough.  As I have finished my ten day course of antibiotics (thank goodness), my mother suggested lemon juice, honey and hot water.  Between me and you I think she is trying to poison me!!!  I do not like honey, unless it's heavily  disguised.  Suffice to say drinking this is nasty.  Not sure how often I have to drink this, must ask her when I talk to her this weekend; and believe me I will be whining.  Though as she says, I'm not happy unless I am whining about something!!!

I did have more energy than I have had in a while on Friday; or it could be we have company coming this weekend and I just got off my butt to tidy up a bit!!!  Anyway I cleaned some of the windows inside and out.  Which upstairs means me sitting on the window ledge and hanging out of the window.  What it does do, is make my stomach muscles groan in agony at being used!!! 

I love having clean windows, just like I love seeing straight lines on the grass when I cut it.  Does that make me a Crazy Daisy?  How often do you clean your windows?  One friend once said to me, she cleaned her windows once a year whether they need it or not......and she meant it!!

Talking of Crazy Daisy I love this new Portmeirion Crazy Daisy Line:

This toast rack is just so flipping cute as well:
Still haven't got around to writing about the kitchen..............

I'm quite a fan of honey and lemon for a sore throat but it always makes me cough, so not the best remedy for you!

I'm with you gill I don't like honey either, but it will make you feel better. Use as often as you like you cannot OD on it. If you can't take the homey, just do tea with lemon, still very good for you. Adding a little ginger to it will help also. Feel better soon

I don't like cleaning windows, but I like the result. If that makes sense. I need to clean my storm doors every other day but they are lucky to get once every two weeks. I do my windows about twice a year when I am healthy, but with this shoulder, it is slowing me down on everything.
