Yay, I have a brain.....ouch it hurts!


The skies over Perth may be cloudy and grey, but they have nothing on what's going on in my head. My dear old Dad, who suffered from migraines and passed them on down to moi always used to say "you canna hae a migraine hen (in heavy Scottish accent!) you've got tae hae a brain to hae a migraine", good old Dad, how I miss him. Well the proof is in the pudding as they say, I must have a brain, deep down I've always suspected it haha! I've pulled out a few shots from last year which  look pretty much how the skies over Perth have been for the last week. I'm going to give my eyes a couple of days off looking at the computer screen, so I'll catch up soon. Have a great week and keep safe.....

  1. I do relate not only to the gray skies, but the "brain problem"!!! I can't believe how easily and quickly I forget everything, anything and then some!! I hope you have a great break! Enjoy and do something wonderful, just for you!

  8. Sorry to hear about your migraine - hope you feel better soon. I used to get them a lot. I take a marvellous little preventative pill now called Pizotifen, on prescription, that has all but cleared them up.

  15. Good choices in difficult circumstances. Perth looks beautiful but ominous. I had migraines in my teens and twenties. Then, miraculously, they went away. Others are not so fortunate. Hope you feel better soon.

  18. Those lovely photographs all in shades of blue and green and gray should be soothing to the eyes. Wring out a washcloth in cold water and mold it over your forehead and eyes and another around the back of your neck, then lean back, breath deeply and try to relax and empty your mind of all thought. Maybe listen to Erik Satie played very softly. Breathe in, breathe out, there, thats it.

  19. Get better soon Grace. Have you checked for food allergies? They can sometimes be the cause of migraines or even back problems...

  23. Hope you get to feeling better. I have migraines every once in awhile and they are painful. Love the dramatic skies!

  24. Oh poor Grace, I know how awful those can be .. ask your doctor for Caffregot (sp?) or when you feel the headache approaching (do you get those flashy lights in the corner of your eyes?) drink a big cup of black coffee, the caffeine helps expand the blood vessels and can ease the pain/ache .. but only if you do it as soon as you see those lights .. its saved me several times ..
