This nose of mine...

Oh no..I had a runny nose and watery eyes yesterday. I know that when I had these symptoms, it means that I have a flu. So after I was done with my work, I had a hot bath, cleaned myself up, had a cup of hot tea and went straight to bed. Before going to bed earl, I was hoping that this flu will be gone by now..which is the next morning. But when I woke up this morning, the runny nose is now stop but I have a blocked nose which makes it even worse and soon I'm sure that I will have a sore throat. Hmm...why is it happening to me on weekend? I guess I can't be too tired and have to get some medicine or else..I can't enjoy my weeekend. Do you know what I have in mind? A bowl of warm soup. My fave is cream mushroom soup. Hmm I think it will be very nice to warm up my body. And not to forget, the hot English breakfast tea. Oooh..and a blanket=) Nice... Here's a recipe that I found, it's a soup called "Weight Watchers Cream of Mushroom Soup". Wanna give it a try? Surely it'll be good for your tummy=)

Oh no! I hope you get better soon! I've been SO lucky that I haven't got a cold or the flu for a few years now, knock on wood! Probably because I'm so isolated and I don't really interact with those germy humans, lol! The soup sounds delish! I like cream of anything soup really!
