Yesterday I had a good day. I felt somewhat better and it really helped me to sum up what makes me happy. I had to cry when I heard one of mum's songs on Sky radio, but it didn't influence my whole day. I just had sore eyes for the rest of the day.
In the afternoon my friend Leonie and I met to do cryptograms together. That's become a tradition on Thursday afternoons. We have a lot of fun and together we solve the most difficult crypto's.

Around 6.30pm Wonder picked me up to go to a SFGA-meeting. We parked the car on the P+R car park near Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station. With the parking ticket you get two public transport tickets to use in the train or in tram/bus/etc. Nice service, but by train we couldn't get far enough and by tram it would take too long... From the other Amsterdam P+R you can travel almost anywhere in the city centre on the free ticket. Ah well, good lesson for next time: no parking near Sloterdijk anymore!
The weather was okay, so we walked from the Central Station to the location. We were the first, but soon the others came. It wasn't very busy and we didn't have a theme, so the evening didn't become all too spiritual and/or philosophical. ;-) We had a good time though, sitting outside by a canal just chatting and catching up. I was very tired, so I didn't protest when Wonder wanted to leave early. We were walking back to the Central Station when I got a bit unwell: sweaty, dizzy, headache and somewhat nauseated. I was afraid it would become a migraine. Wonder had to support me. At home he did a pressure point massage (?) and that helped well enough to have a good night's sleep and to wake up without a migraine!

    @ Lilize: I heard a song on the radio that was played on my mum's cremation. That made me cry.
    I can recommend a personal masseur! :-)

    Hey Tink,

    Jammer dat ik er niet bij kon zijn afgelopen donderdag, had zelf een crematie dus was daarna niet echt meer in de stemming voor socializing...hoop dat alles een beetje beter gaat met je. Kan me voorstellen dat het nog wel even gaat duren maar ik hoop dat je het normale leven toch beetje bij beetje weer kunt oppakken. Ga je niet binnenkort naar Robbie?

  6. ik heb zaterdag ook een migraine aanval gehad. Pas heb ik gelezen dat als je op een punt op je hand duwt (met je rechterduim in het zachte gedeelte boven op je linkerhand, tussen het bot van je duim en wijsvinger) dat je hoofdpijn dan weggaat.
    Ik heb het geprobeerd, en het werd inderdaad minder. Compleet weg niet helaas, maar toch, als je migraine hebt, is een beetje minder ook al goed :)

    Plaatje van dat drukpunt op je hand:

  7. @Eveline: you've got mail! :-)

    @Sonja: Nee, ik kan me voorstellen dat je hoofd er niet naar stond na een crematie. Met mij gaat het up-and-down, maar ik kom er wel weer. Ik ga 16 september naar Robbie in Milton Keynes, woohoo!

    @Nathalie: in de auto heeft Wonder mijn hand daar tot moes geknepen! ;-) Eerst hielp het niet echt, maar later gelukkig wel. Bedankt voor de tip!
