Going Offline

Snowdrops

Some of you will know that I’ve been struggling with migraines again, so I’ve decided to take a break from being online to really rest up. Hopefully it wont be too long.

I will however, be hosting a giveaway towards the end of next week so keep your eyes peeled here (this had already been scheduled).

Other than that, I will be offline!

P.S. The image above is my lawn in the back garden. How pretty are the snowdrops?!

  1. Dearest Claire. I will miss reading your posts greatly but I am so pleased you have taken this step to try to heal yourself a little. I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say that I hope you feel much better very soon & I will be keeping a keen eye on my inbox for your lovely posts when you do. All the very best. xxx

  2. Hope you’re feeling better soon Claire. Everyone will miss you and we’ll look forward to your blog updates on your return. You’ve inspired us to make jam this weekend! Thanks for the lovely feature in Make and Craft 🙂 Take care and stay cosy

  3. I hope you have a lovely rest away from the internet with plenty of nourishing foodie things, pretty magazines, craft time, and no migraines(!!) Will be keeping my fingers crossed for you 🙂 xxx

  4. What a super view, this spring weather and growing life makes such a difference, hope you can soak it all up and enjoy a slower pace of life for a while.
    Wishing you a restful break and a chance to get rid of those migraines. x

  5. Oooo sorry you are having migraine trouble, I do too, but take Imigran (Sumatriptan is the generic drug) it’s prescribed by the doctor and works a treat for me! Take it as soon as you feel one coming on and go to bed in the dark (if poss) with a hot water bottle on your head/face (where it hurts the most) and wake up a few hours later feeling as fresh as a daisy! It saves you from having several days feeling like you have been battered round the head with a baseball bat (not nice at all as it destroys your whole week) The other thing is to recognise the early symptoms, I rarely get the flashing lights or disturbed vision but do get the cold fingers (capillary blood vessels shutting down) and the inability to string a sentence together (I know what I want to say but it won’t come out… some people say that I just talk rubbish but there is a difference!) Over the counter meds just don’t work for me but this really does, hope this might help you as I know just how distructive migraines can be. take care xxx

    1. Thank you for your advice, I’m so sorry to hear you suffer too and I know exactly how you feel with the inability to talk properly. That’s the scariest symptom for me! I have a number of prescribed meds from the specialist including daily meds, but I’m revisiting them next week for a review. Unfortunately mine are rather aggressive and don’t tend to respond that well to a triptan and sleep 🙁
