>I was a bit out of sorts over the weekend. Nothing outstanding, just a bit … off. I stayed in Friday and Saturday nights and went out Sunday night, but apart from that I did hardly anything. Monday I stayed in bed, just couldn’t get myself to move, and yesterday I woke with a massive migraine. Usually a migraine hits me head-on with my vision being the first to go – it tunnels before disappearing completely and the trick is to lie down in a darkened room before the vision goes. The headache and nausea come on then, but they’re usually gone by the next morning. This is the first time a migraine has crept up on me.
Perhaps I went into meltdown during January; perhaps I just had too much on my mind. Anyway, it’s gone now and I’m back at work where the news on the street is still No News.
The To Do list for January isn’t looking as good as I’d hoped, following the Weekend That Never Happened, and although I wrote the draft of an article, I missed the competition deadline. Everything else will just move along to February’s To Do list. I’ll get those both done next.
I have magazine work and website work to do at work, and I’m feeling slightly sick following someone force-feeding me birthday cake. I also have WotWots 2 to be getting on with this week and a writing weekend to prepare for … if they still have my place (I had to use my holiday money to pay for the hot water and the car brakes).
We had snow yesterday, it was lovely to watch. Started as drizzle, progressed through heavy rain and sleet, and then nice big fluffy flakes of snow. I watched it through the window for a couple of hours while I was supposed to be reading. This morning it’s just a hard frost that took ages to scrape from the car. I don’t use boiling water, in case it cracks the glass, and anyway if it’s very cold it just freezes again, and I don’t use de-icer because it’s not great for the environment and it just mists up as soon as I start to drive. This morning a neighbour tried to convert me to the de-icer, saying “it’s quicker”. But it’s no quicker if as soon as I turn the bend I crash into an oncoming car I can’t see due to the mist.
I’m happy with my scraper, thanks.
