Headaches....


I've been suffering with headaches now for three days running. Nasty ones - or possibly the same one which keeps coming back. It's right behind my left eye (the eye that actually works realitivly well) and goes right through my brain to the base of my skull.

It's a hot, throbbing, killing pain, and I can't seem to shift it.

It started on Tuesday evening, and Tuesdays are my day off, so I don't think it's anything to do with working with cleaning fluids and stuff. It starts both when I'm on the PC and when I'm away from it, regardless of whether or not I am reading or watching TV so I don't think it's nessesarily eye strain (although I am LONG over due an eye test and new specs), and this time it's not because I am inadvertanlty poisoning myself with carbin monoxide in a dodgy car (which is what was happening LAST time I had bad headaches).

I can't even put it down to stress or being over tired because regardless of the fact that it is winter and I am feeling low, I'm not worrying overly about anything and I am actually sleeping well.

I don't like taking pain killers... normally I'll just stick out a heachache until it passes or go to bed early or something, but this one is driving me crackers! So I started hunting round the house for some nurophen, and I've run out. Typical! I did find some paracetamol, but the use by date was feb this year... After 2 hours of pain so bad it was bringing me to tears I took 2 of them anyway and the pain went away to a dull throb for the rest of yesterday.

But today, about 11ish this morning, as I was driving away from one of my cleaning jobs it started again - boom boom boom! I don't really want to keep taking out-of-date paracetamol (who knows what that will do to me!) so I guess I'll have to admit defeat and buy some more... it's either that or I'm going to take a drill to my skull or attempt to scoop my brain out with a spoon!!!!

I get migraines from time to time. I hope that's not what you're slogging through. It's nasty stuff.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
