    Morning. Re headaches, more than the odd one, I would have thought, Gargs.
    . Do you get headaches after giving blood?
    Not much planned for today.

    As a migraine sufferer (although not much as I’ve got older), I would say more than once a month for serious migraine type headaches. More than once a week for less serious headaches would be a lot, I would say. Anything unusual for you might need a discussion.

    The fresh air and exercise yesterday meant I had the best night’s sleep for a while.

    The birds he brings in are for you. He knows you are incapable of catching your own food.

    Halloumi burgers.
    Risotto with peas and asparagus.

    Every week?

    I agree with others, more than once a week would probably count as a lot. My mother used to suffer with migraines and when I found a diary after clearing her things to go into care I found that in one entire year she had less than 10 days without a migraine or headache. :eek: Now that's definitely a lot!

    I always have a lightweight coat with hood for such days. When I lived on the coast at school the weather always changed with the tide, so it was a necessity and one I've continued since.

    Interesting about your mum’s migraine, Lara. My mum suffered very frequently too. Any link with the dementia problems later, I wonder?

    I have no 'real evidence', but I'm convinced her migraines, which were hemiplegic i e mimicking a stroke by giving her unilateral paralysis, were instrumental, in what I became increasingly more convinced, was 'vascular dementia' rather than true Alzheimers. I also wondered if some of those 'migraines' were in fact mini-strokes which over the years just affected her brain abilities..

    That makes sense to me, too, Lara.

    Sounds a sensible assumption to me.

    There was an atricle in the birding magazine by a guy who wants to eradicate all cats or (he makes a small compromise) at least make owners keep them in.

    That was a commiserilike Lara. Your poor Mum.

    It's damp and chilly today. I didn't get too wet rowing but did when waiting to help others off. I have showered and am now a bit cool. I am back in my woolly slippers!

    We did attach a collar with a bell on it... twice..

    Both times he managed to get the collar off somehow.

    He use to be an indoors cat... and he played with us a lot more... now he's outdoors and burns it all off out there.

    My gran died from vascular dementia.

    My sympathies go to everyone who experiences this...

    Cats don't have a detrimental effect on bird populations. They catch weaker birds, yes, but most of these would die anyway due to other causes.

    Got myself a Costa flat white this morning as a treat.

    Tasted of blue cheese... the milk had gone off.

    Teach me for thinking a milk drink was a treat.

    Mmmmmm ... blue cheese.


    Actually sounds gross.
