This morning I woke up at 7AM with a major, pounding headache that spreads through various parts of the head, and nausea. Could barely open my eyes. For an hour I was feeling very sorry for myself, then the nausea came up so badly I decided to relocate myself to the bathroom, but nothing happened, went to bed again, fell asleep eventually and woke up at 11. Headache's still there but not as vile.
Eye still sees blurry, although it appears to be getting better.
ha, headaches, it's really a pain in the ass... well it's more in the head, actually... lol... ok, I am out:forumsmiley395:

Went out today but am now regretting that.
I'm reading up on migraine now, well, as far as I can find it without my Sacks book since my sister is borrowing that. It's very creepy to me since I never had any serious visual discomfort or intense headaches.

Wow Aqua, hope you get there... Good luck!

It was hard for me to quit taking sugar in my tea. I came from the fizzy drinks corner when I started on tea - fizzy drinks have about 4 sugar cubes per glass. For adding sugar I used a shaker, so I didn't know how much I put in there. When I moved to sweetener to get me off sugar bit by bit, I found I did put the equivalent of 4 lumps in there. Went to 3 sweeteners, then 2, then 1... Getting rid of the last one was the hardest. I succeeded by accident when I dropped the sweetener container in my tea. I tried to finish it but... ewww...

Actually, if you're thirsty, coffee is not a good drink. It is a laxative meaning it'll make you more thirsty.

Yeah, definitely hard to get rid of sugar, I like them cookies and stuff, and I'm used to saying I drink Sugar with coffee and not the other way around, plus sugar is almost everywhere so it's hard to efficaciously cut down on it . Funny thing is I didn't drink coffee before moving to Amiens-I didn't drink alcohol either-I think I'm gonna quit after the holidays, it's gonna be easier since I generally don't have breakfast.

My grandmother told me it's very important to eat breakfast to get your system going, since it would've been half a day since your last meal. When I was at school I never had breakfast and I usually went without lunch as well. That would get me in embarrassing situations if I had a science test in the last hour and my stomach would be growling.

breakfast is no big deal for me, I'd never had it since very recently, and when I was in college and art school I didn't have lunch either, keeping the money to buy records, lol....Now with the work that I do it wouldn't be good to skip lunch. Problem is I should eat healthier food at lunch than I do, will probably start cooking something in the evening and take it with me the next day as my workmates do, but it's not a practice I like.

Cooking something the day before doesn't sound like the standard Dutch lunch - most people here just bring in their sandwiches. Our school canteen basically only had worstenbroodjes (sausage roll - a sort of sausage with the bread baked in close contact all the way around it) and apples in the canteen.

I've been pretty busy. These courses are getting very serious. Sorry to hear about your migraine situation, Bonny. I've been a migraine sufferer since age thirteen, they're no fun. Luckily, I don't get them as often as some.

NOTE: Edited to take out headache-English. Which is going to be hard since I still have a headache.

Thanks Poly... it's not fun but I have faith it will get better soon.

Today was a bit action-packed: managed to build a plywood windmill and bake baguettes at the same time. Go multi-tasking!

In May I bought a windmill model building package at the book fair. They had one set up and they were so charming I couldn't resist. And I had staff discount. :D
When I finally decided to build it, I couldn't find the plate that had #1.
For good reason. There was a bit of a snafu when it was assembled, so I had 2 wooden plates twice and missed two others. Dad contacted the factory and sent the two missing plates.

So I thought. Then I compared the fresh plates to my kit and found I'd made a mistake in identifying the missing bits, so I got something else double as well, and still one plate missing.
We were too embarrassed to call the company again, so instead Dad dug up some old plywood and I got some figure saws, he printed the instruction manual's drawing life-size so I could use that as template.

I am absolutely no star at putting things together, whether woodwork or paper or clay. My craft projects at elementary school were usually poorer than the rest of the class's, and at the thought of sawing out something my mind reeled back to high school.
My teacher on the technics and crafts subjects, and later class mentor, was the lovely mr Van Kemenade, with whom I got along like a charm. It happened to me twice that he literally pulled a project out of my hands because I was failing miserably, then he set it together at an incredible speed, let me do the last bit and then give me 7/10. Sawing was particularly lousy. And soldering. And clay.

It wasn't easy, but I managed to saw out the octagon. Then I had to drill holes at the right places, so measured them out and made the holes bigger until it fitted.
Then I found there was another piece I needed: one that was much tinier and needed precise working. I sort of got a good shape and good depth, but somehow the result was too uneven - the plywood I used for the missing parts was thicker than the rest of the mill-to-be. Sanded that side down a bit but eventually my father got to help out on that, and on making it all fit since it was fiddly.
Fortunately the rest went smooth and some time later I had a lovely little wind mill that can rotate, and had some yummy baguette to enjoy!

PAAH Da Da DA!

Punky: not sure if you're reading this, but tomorrow is the Brabantsedag again. The topic is Brabantian heroes - among the depicted are Van Doorne, who built the DAF car/truck factory (and built the first car with automated gearshift), inventor and creator Peter Reijnders, who has built many of the early attractions in De Efteling, Ambiorix, Jacques Brel and Henri van Abbe.
