I only get the odd headache and usually they are the self inflicted kind or every few months I get a 'monthly' headache but I had a doozy last night. Kirby arrived home about 7pm and we had a few wines then we were all off to bed by about 10.30pm, so not a big night. I felt like I had a headache coming on so I took some Nurafen, plugged in my hypnotherapy app and went off to sleep.
I awoke at 1am with a splitter of a headache so I took 2 Panadol and had a big glass of water and tried to go back to sleep. I tossed and turned all night. Got up and put a wet flannel on my forehead and eyes. Still so intense, pounding and throbbing in my forehead then sometimes the back of my head. At 4am, I took some Aspirin. Back to bed, toss, turn, toss, turn until 7am when I took some more Panadol. Nothing relieved the pain.
We were meant to be going to the movies this morning but by 8.30 when I got up, I canned the idea. Looking at a big screen was not an option. I had a cup of tea and some toast and by 10.30 the pain had finally dulled. I went to the chemist and got some Paracetamol/codeine capsules. I took 2 and felt quite good.
Kirby asked if I'd make some mini quiches for lunch and I also wanted to make something to take to see my two sisters at their on-site holiday vans in Beachport.
So I got stuck into making 4 dozen quiches ...
Yummy little morsels. Two dozen will go back with Kirby so Bri can have some...
I had frozen this cookie dough a few weeks back so I thawed it out...
... and voila, instant peanut butter cookies! Such a good thing to have in the freezer!
Next up, Pumpkin and Date Scones...
Do you wrap your scones in a clean tea towel when they come out of the oven? That's what my Mum taught me. It makes them softer.
Let them cool before serving them buttered with a cup if tea.
That's how we enjoyed them, sitting in the sunshine down at Beachport.
My head is still a bit fuzzy but thankfully the pain is all gone.
Does anyone have any natural remedies for headaches. I am drinking plenty of water.
