    I had all 4 wisdom teeth out at the same time as they were impacted, under general anaesthetic (much safer, secrets wise) looked like I'd been in a boxing match.

    Up until the 1950s it was common in some families for people to have all their teeth removed and false teeth fitted as a 21st birthday present!

    Somehow I don't get offered the option of general anaesthetics, Usual quote at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge was "if you want that done under a general anaesthetic the waiting list is over five years, but we can do it next week under local" Something to do with a completely trashed recovery room and some slightly battered staff on the first op I had, which was under a general. Word has spread.

    In agony and keeping the salt, paracetamol and ibuprofen companies in business. Counting down the 4hrs until the next lot can be taken.


    Today's visit to dentist surgery for hygienist appt discovered I had been transferred over to the new dentist's list that I saw yesterday. Now transferred back to my usual one who has done all the work on my teeth since he started many moons ago !
    Appt booked for Monday with him for possible extraction :(

    I came past earlier and it seemed considerably busier than last season.

    Right, I thought that, but I haven't been keeping detailed records.

    Glad to have some confirmation.




    There's almost definitely one laddette* there, possibly two - what the hell are Security doing?

    Finally Mrs p has relented and allowed jr to mow the lawn on the ride on for the first time today. She's always been massively afraid that he'd hurt himself. He did a good job too.

    It's ironic really as she had no objection to him learning how to drive a car during lockdown and admires his ability to hand brake turn and flip park!

    Drove down to near Gloucester to visit a camping showroom to try and decide what tent we want. Shortlist down to 2. I wanted to go to Cheltenham on the way home, the OH didn't, so we diverted to Ludlow. I expected more than there was.

    Today's very important task was to go and look at motorbikes as apparently a new one is imperative.

    Potteries motorcycles. I'm expecting a Triumph to replace the Honda in the garage very soon.
