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 I don't really want to keep taking out-of-date paracetamol (who knows what that will do to me!)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.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
