I'm a happy bunny this morning. Six months before my next check up! Actually, that's not true as I have an implant consultation (that's what they call it) next Monday but it won't involve any treatment yet and is quite a different matter anyway.
I walked into the room and she said, cheerfully and brightly, 'I won't numb you for this. The nerve has already been taken out of one tooth and the other requires hardly any drilling,' whereupon I nearly bolted right back out, down the stairs and away! Eeeeek.
But she was right. Hardly any drilling (I hate the drill) and only one really teeny little twinge at one point. Because I hadn't been numbed, I could chew straight away. I always thought the 'don't bite on it' thing was so the filling could sort of settle in but it seems to be because one can bite one's cheek or tongue quite badly if you can't feel them. And, I have to say, it's really nice to have a proper chew again without food getting stuck.
The rest of the day was taken up with picking up a parcel BD (before dentist) and tuition AD.
Today I have to be out early to get to the GP surgery as it opens. Last week I had to do a five day blood pressure check thing and my GP wanted to 'see me' (sounds like a summons from the head teacher, doesn't it) about a recent blood test as well as looking at the results of the test. Obviously there's an issue there somewhere. However, she's fully booked so the receptionist said to get there first in the queue and ask for a same day appointment - Dr Singh is, presumably, duty doctor today.
After that, I have nothing in the diary so I will probably make some biscotti for presents. It keeps well in an airtight container and maybe I will only do the first bake on some so I can then freeze it. That can be my Christmassy thing for the day.
Today's Christmas music is another children's song. There are so many good Christmas songs for children nowadays, they (and teachers) are absolutely spoilt for choice.
This one comes from the Out of the Ark stable and is from 'Songs for Every Christmas'. The kids used to love it!
