Last night, I woke up at 2am with a splitting headache. Actually I should have seen it coming. Before bedtime, I already felt the tension building round my neck.
My daughter's chiropractor taught me how to massage my daughter to relieve the tension on her neck. So I applied the same method on myself. I was trying so hard not to wake my hubby as he was suffering from jet lag and really needed that beauty sleep.
Finally managed to go back to sleep around 3ish but need to get up at 6am to send my girl to school. Luckily it was just a light drizzle and it makes the morning really crisp and fresh. Due to the bad night, I fell back into slumber easily.
Didn't wake up till 11am!!! and I was really happy because the pain was gone! yea! And I was surprised that hubby was still sleeping! Poor man, he must be really tired from this work trip.
As for my pain, I seriously hate this pain as there are days it will linger and makes my life so miserable so now I am happy to know how to deal with it if it hits me again.
Okay, dinner time. We had Terry's Chicken Stew. This dish can easily become a one dish meal as you can put in more vegetable.
Overall, we like it.
I also done a pot of Watercress with pork soup as watercress was on offer. With last night dessert that is supposedly to be heaty, this is a good balance.
I also show my helper how this soup should be done. The last time, the vegetable was still green and she claimed that it was taught to her by my mom. Luckily my mom is not around, if not, she will definitely get mad. hahaha.
