Yep, that's been me - A.Bad.Blogger. Too much going on, but I have managed to find a little time

Yesterday we went to New Lanark with a friend. The walk beside The Falls of CLyde is lovely, but I am still having major migraine problems. I am not going to be able to take my usual painkillers for a while. Now, they do not get rid of the pain, but they allow me to somehow get on with life. I'm kind of resigned at the moment to living with chronic pain - but I have a visit to a neurologist coming up, so I am living in hope. In the meantime, I am very worried about how I am going to cope with work if my pain is out of control....

Saturday night saw us at The Rocky H0rror Show for the fourth time. It's a new production, and David Badella was (worryingly!) good in the lead role. Wasn't convinced by Columbia, though. HOwever, we had a great time, as did most of the audience....

I discovered that i need to pay far more attention when I'm baking cakes. As you can see, I HAD already put the bicarb in this cake. First time I've had a cake collapse on me, but it still tasted great.

I finally took a picture of Hiccup, the sock pattern I made up and knat with my Secret Pal Lorna's Laces. Love that yarn - thanks again, SP8! I've included 2 pics - one gives a better view, one gives a bit of a better colour representation

I like my socks to be close fitting, so I now know to knit them with a fair bit of negative ease, as it were. My Dear Son goes back to Uni in 2 weeks - so that'll be me crying for a month again, I expect. Course, he can't wait to go!

So, this has been rather a disjointed post, but with a lot on my mind at the moment, I'm afraid it's the best I could do - surely a 'Must do Better' on my Blogging Report.....

I find seeing a cranial osteopath helps and auricular acupuncture has helped me with pain control.

Love the socks

Lovely colour for the socks. Sorry the migraines are still giving you problems - they sound like the pits. See you Sunday hopefully.

The migraines sound awful. Like Yvonne, I was going to suggest Cranial Osteopathy might be worth a try. I do hope you find some relief soon, it's a horrible thing to suffer from.

The socks are very pretty, gorgeous colours.
