A new month

A big moth at the front of the house.
A new month doesn't necessarily start off in the best possible way. The original plan had been to finish the old job and start the new job today. Thanks to bankruptcy and Corona, the old job finished in March and the new job will probably start in about 4 weeks' time. Fingers crossed!

And there was something else which didn't make it the best of starts of the meteorological summer. I have a stinking big migraine attack. Have had it for five days now as well. The amount of time I spent in my room over the past few days is staggering and the only thing I can say about my stay there: I am glad my room was done before and it now is a lovely calming place to be. 

Because I didn't have the medication ready on Thursday, I took it late, which then means it doesn't take effect as well as it should. I had to take another one. On Friday, the pain was back in force, which meant another two. On Saturday I stuck to one pill, on Sunday none, but today I took the last one. Early enough this time I hope to knock it on its head completely.

As I said, it wasn't completely good this start, but on the other hand, things are looking up. My room did prove it was nice and calming and lovely to be in. The weather is nice, although farmers probably will disagree strongly with me. And I should start work in a couple of weeks' time. By then the migraine should be gone as well...

    That's it, look for the positives! For me the positive is ten more days in the Hutch... YAM xx

    1. It's not always easy looking for positives when you are feeling so bad. I actually felt sick in the middle of the night (something to do with a bolognese recipe I saw before going to bed).

  2. Sorry about that blasted headache. It must be awful when they persist. Sue sometimes awakes with a migraine but is fortunate that it doesn't endure past an hour or two.

  3. Five days!!! I'm so sorry. ((HUGS))

  4. We're sorry you had those horrible headaches! Hope they go away for a long time now.

  5. Oh I'm so sorry Mara...5 days of misery must be getting very old.

  6. Sorry to hear about those migraines. We have our paws crossed that you feel better soon.

  7. Those terrible migraines. So sorry you are having to deal with those again. Wish the root cause could be located as it causes you to suffer so. No tension from driving to cause it this time. Miss O makes the flowers look good!
