Stay warm with hot food and drink

I’ve found it really helps to have big mugs for drinking hot drinks. Little dainty cups are fine, but a big mug/bucket of tea means I can keep both hands wrapped around and warm without making my fingers hurt. I refuse to let arthritis spoil my enjoyment of the most British of beverages!

Hot soup, hot juice, hot socks and a hot water bottle! I’m 35 with inflammatory arthritis in multiple joints and these things certainly help me through the winter. Stay cosy everyone!
