cold, ice

Writer's Block: Chicken soup

What is your cure for the common cold?


Paracetamol, a piping hot drink, warm/hot food, warm clothes, a hot water bottle, blankets and a duvet (or pseudoephedrine if I can find any and have to go outdoors).

The question I answered here, in case they change it (which they have done before), was, "What is your cure for the common cold?"

People have been asking

People whose LJs I read but who may not read mine have been asking what I want for giftmas.

Me? I am saving for an iPad. Hubby will be donating any money he gets for giftmas over and above the pair of walking boots he just bought. Add to that any giftmas money I get and then we are crossing our fingers that I will have enough because we can't afford not to pay the bills.

Alternatively, any of the US-only dishcloth yarns that I cannot get in the UK (just NO PINK please).

Not that I expect anything from the relative stranger whose LJ I read, of course!


Of course, an iPad is such a useful knitters' and knitting designers' tool that me wanting one is a no-brainer!

I guess I need a "saving up for an iPad" ticker. So far I have £190 in the "kitty". An iPad seems to be £399. Getting there.
