A spoonful of honey
Sore throats are all the rage in our house at the moment. Charlie was suffering last week, and just when I thought I’d escaped, I managed to catch it this weekend. Thankfully we discovered the benefits of a spoonful of honey to ease a sore throat a few years back, so we’ve been able to keep the worst of the symptoms at bay.
I think Little Man feels he’s missing out though.
“Mammy, I need some honey medicine,” he announced this evening.
“Oh no!” I said, “Is your throat sore too?”
“Yes,” he said, nodding. “My throat is sore.”
“Open wide,” I said. But his throat looked fine. Worried he was catching whatever’s been plaguing us, I asked, “Is it very sore when you swallow pet?”
“No, no Mammy,” he says, “Only when I run! I have honey please?”
Thankfully we have several jars of our favourite Apitherapy honey in the cupboard at any time, so we can spare a spoonful of honey for a runaway throat!
