Good morning. Another misty start to the day today, fairly cool but not cold enough to need to turn up the heating. We have rain predicted for this morning and maybe even a storm although I can't say it feels like it at the moment. Time will tell.
The dentist visit was interesting.
Where I had the tooth extracted hasn't 'settled' (whatever that means) enough to start the implant procedure yet. I have another appointment in a moth and a half and, yes, that will be a talk, measure, discuss 'what we can do' (his words), etc.
However, he took the opportunity to have a bit of a scrape at some of my teeth, muttered a bit about this, that and the other as he's not happy at the way some of my teeth are wearing down and gave me an appt with the dental hygiene lady who happened to have a gap in her appointments. She did various stuff, none of which hurt, asked how I brush my teeth (more or less correctly, as it happens), checked them with disclosing stuff (I seem to brush my teeth very well, she said) and then gave me a tooth brushing demo before giving my teeth a fluoride treatment.
It turns out they are having a bit of a push with dental hygiene and trialling some new thing, something I'm quite happy to go along with.
Most of this was unexpected but not unwelcomed. I did mutter at some point in last year's treatment about looking after my remaining gnashers a bit better so it's all good.
I now have an electric toothbrush and some flosser thingies arriving today from Amazon. May as well do it properly! Also, I have a return visit a week Friday so I must do my homework!
I was back in time for my chat with Dad at the usual time although I'd warned him that we might have to have it on Thursday instead. All's pretty much well his end.
Matt emailed to say he will be here at 9:30 today to finish off the work.
So - today. Matt, of course, and then nothing until a chat with Val at two. No personal training today. The back is so much better but I'm taking no risks so PT is on Friday this week and I am so glad I have a trainer who is flexible and understanding.
I'm really hoping they get it wrong about rain this morning because, if it remains dry, I want to go and get those beans sown. It's been frustrating, not getting to the allotment this week.
So it's quite a gentle day apart from paying Matt's bill which will be a bit ouch but there you go - home ownership is an expensive business and things have to be done and paid for, don't they?
I'd better get going. There's stuff to do in the kitchen and elsewhere. Have a great day and be safe. xx
