When I was a child if I got a tummy bug Mum would boil lemonade (it had to be Sprite) on the stove, let it cool then serve it to us at room temperature to sip slowly. I’m not convinced it had any healing properties, but the placebo effect was the same every time. Comfort.
Today I have had a stomach bug and spent the day either with my head down the toilet or asleep, but all I’ve wanted is warm lemonade. I have no energy or patience for the stove top method but my friend suggested the microwave and it’s worked a treat.
What are your creature comforts from when you were a child?
