Since Tuesday afternoon I had a migraine that went on until Friday evening. A pounding in the right side of my head, an earache and painful tension in neck and shoulder. I took pain killers but they had little effect. The main headache has now ceased but I feel dull and as though I have a hangover. Any tips on how to manage a migraine will be greatly received!
As I have been mostly confined to house for the last few days, I thought I would take a walk to a small local park and visit the library. There was very little of interest in the park and the only colour I could find was in the plants shown in the photograph above. Uninspired I went to the library and could not find anything to interest me. Do you ever get to the point when you feel as though nothing is new and you've seen it all before? That is just how I feel but in my heart I know that it is not true. I just need something to get excited about again.
There is something that sparked my interest this week though, which is mainly down to my historical discovery of 17th Century London from reading novels by Charlotte Betts - and that is an exhibition at the Museum of London about the Cheapside Hoard. The Cheapside Hoard is the treasures, gemstones and jewels from the late16th and early 17th Centuries, discovered in 1912 and buried in a cellar on Cheapside in the City of London. You can read about it here I really would like to visit the exhibition and maybe get inspired for some new jewellery designs?
