Inchybyinch challenge - 'Cold'



I have a cold.  The eyes weeping, red nose streaming, WA-HOOoooooo sneezing, head and joints aching type of cold.  But it isn't flu, is it girls?  Men do get it so much worse than us lucky ladies.  And what is it about men and Lemsips?  Did their mothers give them Lemsips when they were little boys, because it's the only thing ever requested by my man, despite the fact that it tastes revolting and doesn't seem to do anything!  

Fiona's penultimate inchy challenge word at inchybyinch is 'Cold'.  She did, of course, mean the 'Brrrrrr, chilly' kinda cold but as I have the other type I thought I'd do that.  The background is from a Lemsip box (from Grant's medicinal stash), and I pinked up the nose of this brave little soldier to show how much he is suffering!

Hi Jo

Poor you..... hope you feel better soon.

I love your inchy..... especially his pinked up nose!!!!

We have gotten through so many boxes of lemsips in the last two weeks (Elliott and Woody) - but get the CAPSULES!!!!!! no yukky taste. I even bought 'extra' for the unlucky one in this family who gets it next........

Have a good weekend.....

Love Karenxxxx

Brilliant inchy! I've often wondered what it is about Lemsip... I thought it was just my husband...now I know it is Men and Lemsip! You are right, it is vile stuff. Fresh lemon and manuka honey, much for beneficial.

My kids have taken turns being sick so it seems the germs and viruses are flying around the world! Some things just should not be global!

Hope you have the 24 hour variety and are feeling better very soon. I think I am glad we do not have Lemsips. heehee
