i was working from home today. however, this morning, after a while at my computer, my eyes started to water. also, i had a runny nose and my throat was closing up. yes, symptoms of hay fever, but i usually only get that in spring. we didn't have any antihistamines in the house, so saskia suggested i'd take some aspirine now and she would get the allergy medicine later.
okay, so i took this:

in case you don't know what it is, it's a powder you put in a cup and pour hot water on it. it has paracetamol and ascorbine acid, so it sort of tastes like lemon. i was laying on the couch and i must have dozed off almost immediately. there's nothing wrong with taking a nap, of course, but when i woke up it was almost four hours later!

i was feeling much better. saskia had stayed with me the whole time i was asleep. yes, she's amazing. she tends to be a little overprotective at times, but she's aware of that.. :)

no fuss tonight. taking it slow. but we have to eat, so pizza was ordered.
& in a moment we're going to watch shopgirl..

Your pictures always come out so shiny, if I didn't know better I'd say you were a star, ala Claire Danes.
