Cold

It's a bit chilly today here in the usually sunny Bay of Plenty. I woke with a bit of a sniffle so I boiled the kettle, put half in a hot water bottle which I have stuck down the front of my second pair of trousers, and poured the other half over the peel and juice of a lemon and a tablespoon of bush honey. 
It's so handy that the mandarins and lemons all bear fruit in winter, just when we need the vitamin C!

I've also chopped a few for marmalade. Mmmm, love the smell of citrus wafting through the house!
