Pick the flowers in other people's gardens

This ugly and very busy day is winding itself up with a migraine, so unfortunately I have no evidence of my new coat for you. I wore it with a very plain black dress, and very stern pinstriped jacket, and some austere black pumps. I felt quite formidable, aching head and all. 

I have got pictures of gold things though. I concentrate on bright primary colours when I get migraines to try and make my myself a little warmer. I read somewhere that this helps migraines. 

It's never worked for me but it's fun to think of yellow things.  Like these chips. 

 And this profoundly uninterested cat I met last week when we were house hunting. He had no enthusiasm at all for the prospect of living near me. 
 This chair could be called golden if you view it in a low light and you're not wearing your glasses. I love it but sadly it is not what I'd call affordable. I'd would, however, describe it  as extremely expensive. And golden. 
 Cheddar coloured gerberas. Cheese and flowers. A perfect storm.   
 I actually use this to help with the nausea from migraines. Few things calm my stomach like Vegemite on toast. 
Oddly enough I feel a little better. If you know anything about migraines, or actually suffer from them, I'd be mighty interested to hear about it. 


  1. I hope you feel better. I get headaches but they aren't migraines, so I have no knowledge to share.

  2. I'm sorry you get migraines. Outside of my experience, but I from what I hear they're abominable. I enjoyed your colour story. I had vegemite cravings yesterday. My stomach must have been going out in sympathy with you. It's the best comfort food. I hope you feel better soon.

  3. Thank you for the good wshes Shy - much appreciated.

    Jenny, there's nothing like vegemite toast - I think it cures all ills. And yes, migraines are abominable!
