First of all, thank you so much, all of you, for your lovely supportive comments! My back is much better today, none of the hideous twinges left from yesterday. It also means a lot that you all say that you’d welcome the developments and changes and that you’d all still read 🙂
Sometimes, like today, my posts will be very much the same format as before, mostly pictures of my food accompanied by
inane fascinating details from my day!
Although my back was better this morning, my head has been absolutely pounding since the moment I woke up. So breakfast was a comfort affair: toasted cinnamon and raisin bagel with a handful or extra raisins. Easy, warm and frankly yummy food.
Because of my headache I stayed in bed with the lights off for most of the morning, I just couldn’t face lifting my head off the pillow because it hurt so much every time I tried. I know what you’re thinking “Is this girl always ill/in pain??” and I can imagine it certainly looks that way at the moment. But the thing is I’m pretty sure that when my back and hips play up more than usual, my body can’t deal with it so it transfers the pain to my head. I have no idea of the biology of that, or indeed, if it’s even true! Anyone care to enlighten me?
Lunch was delicious, I had some of the leftover veg curry from last week served with spicy harissa couscous. I know curry and couscous don’t traditionally go together but I don’t much like rice and I didn’t have any naan bread and you know what, I thought it was a lovely match! 😛
This afternoon I did a bit of decorating:
My mum sent me a lovely image with one of my favourite quotes “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. So I used it as the centrepiece of my display and surrounded it by photos. I didn’t have enough photos of my friends so I will have to add to it when I’ve printed some more off. It’s nice to have photos of Tom and my family up though, it makes me smile whenever I look at them 🙂
This afternoon I did a few chores and some reading. My modern lit book for this week is The Turn of the Screw by Henry James so that’s what I’ll be reading for the next couple of days. That and A Book of Middle English… Wish me luck!
Do you get headaches on a regular basis? Do you eat any weird food combinations?
