Since I’m feeling ill and crappy at the moment, I’ve been thinking a lot about what makes me feel better when all I want to do is curl up on the sofa and keep warm. What makes me feel better is just getting lost in a good book, eating chocolate, and good home cooked food. Recently, I’ve been craving things like chicken and sweetcorn soup, tomato and mozarella pasta, pasta and more pasta (but then, when don’t I crave pasta??), lots of tea, crumpets, nutella slathered on the aforementioned crumpets, chilli with pasta shells, cinnamon buns and satsumas. When I’m ill, I kind of gravitate towards satsumas or other peelable citrus fruits – maybe it is my body telling me I need more vitamin C?
Although I haven’t been watching any films that make me feel better, the books that make me feel better are rather typical – ones that are well worn and easy to read, or ones that I know intimately. Such as Pride and Prejudice, or the Harry Potter books. I wouldn’t say no to watching Charmed on repeat or Howls Moving Castle right now. Its the middle of the night as I write this, and I know I’ve got about seven days of 31 Days to catch up on, so I’m racking my brains trying to think of Happy Things to write about. I know I don’t have to write anything huge, but sometimes it feels like cheating if I just include a quote or a picture, but at the moment I don’t have much energy. It looks like I wrote ‘I know’ on repeat there.
The best comfort things, for me, are:
