Migraine.....

Migraine.. every now and than I suffer from a Migraine attack. Last night one suddenly came up when a woke up at 4.30. It is not a good sign for me because usually it means that I haven't taken good care of myself in general. So I had to stay home today (sorry class) after I had taken 2 paracetamol's and a good and deep sleep I feel much better now. Guess sometimes my body reacts when it all becomes too much and than I really have to listen to it. I hadn't had one for a long time but it can hit me suddenly out of nowhere. For years ago it happened once during lessons and my students told me to go home because I looked terrible. Sleep and paracetamol helps me and after it I am really hungry and must eat some sweet things. So now I am fine but I am still thinking why it has happened. Guess it has to do that the life the both of us are having is dramatically changed. Last night I saw Bram climbing the stairs and it broke my heart because he was so tired and could hardly walk…

Voici Paris!!!....in The Hague

Today I went with 3 colleagues and about 50 students from Higher Textile Education by train to The Hague. The main reason was to visit the exhibition: Voici Paris! about the history of Haute Couture in the Gemeente museum. It is always a joy to go there. The museum is designed by Architect Berlage and is in my opinion a very good building for a museum.It doesn't have the darkness of other buildings from Berlage. It has a lightness and very open atmosphere and usually the exhibitions are very nice. So today it was about Haute Couture... The exhibition is designed by a famous Dutch stylist: Maarten Spruyt and he did a marvellous job. I have always admired "Haute Couture" ever since I was young. It has this combination of the work of the fashion-designer combined with the craftsmanship of all workers who work in a fashion-house. No one can work without each-other and together they can make the most wonderful outfits..Hours of work in one dress.. millions of paillettes …
