I've had a headache for the last four days that has increased in ferocity, culminating with me being woken up by it twice last night. I have no idea why it is so persistent, despite taking ibuprofen every 4-5 hours for the last two days. I took a hefty dose of co-codamol this morning so I could get on with my work.
Is this a trapped neck nerve? A food allergy? No idea, but when the pills wear off the front of my face is numb.
Just in case I have caught a bug from someone (I went into the office on Monday) I lit the log burner first thing to keep warm, and managed to get some soup up onto it to cook slowly - curried lentil, parsnip and apple - to last me a few days in case I am ill and don't want to cook. Along the same vein I've also chucked a lump of beef brisket into the slow cooker with some onions and potatoes so that can cook slowly today for tonight and tomorrow night's dinner, maybe even Sunday if I bulk it out with a lot of veg. That lump of beef cost me grand sum of £1.05 (reduced from £4.20), in the reduced section in Tesco when I zipped past on Monday night, so if I can get three meals out of it I shall be well pleased.
Even as I'm typing this I can feel the damn headache is coming back again! Enough, it's wearing me down. If it is going to be a migraine, I wish it would hurry up!
