Morning everyone. It's looking promising out there right now - clearing skies and quite a strong breeze. Yesterday was definitely a day of two halves. The morning was gorgeous but then the clouds rolled in and the rain started just before two - when I left home for the dentist it was sunny but I needed my umbrella to go in.
Lewis turned up and we went down to the allotment. He's quite happy to take on the work and we talked about where and what. He will build some raised beds too which sill be nice. I'm hoping we can go back down today for him to measure up so he can cost it all out and give me a quote.
Then I pottered around at home for \a while. Chris and Steve came across and he checked the tyres again. They are fine. Reassuring because I think that if there had been even a slow puncture, it would show is reduced tyre pressure.
They sent me the link to the gizmo he uses and I have ordered one, to arrive today. If I can check regularly, it will be a peace of mind thing. I've also ordered a set of those caps that Diane mentioned. They're not too costly but will take a while to come. Not to worry, I can wait.
Then it was off to the dentist. While I was waiting (they let people wait inside now), someone I know turned up. not exactly a friend, but one of the check out ladies at Morrisons that I always chat to and she also comes to SW when she can. If our paths crossed more, I think we probably would become friends as we do get on well.
Anyway, she was having a similar thing so we had a good old chat about it and I stopped feeling nervous.
All went well, the implant was perfect this time, it feels so comfortable and I not have to get used to not having to sort of clear the gum just there when I'm eating. It's a habit after all this time.
We discussed the next procedure (there's another gap at the back and I asked about my lower front teeth which are very worn away. Not until next year though, I've had enough for now.
Oh, and I paid the bill which, as almost always, was the most painful part really. Good old Lump Sum!
The rest of the day was normal stuff. Nice and gentle. A parcel arrived and Cheryl will know what it was, me having admired her acquisitions the other day. It's all her fault! :-)
Today there's one set thing and a maybe. I may be taking Lewis back to the allotment as mentioned above and it's personal training with Lindsey. I'm looking forward to that.
Oh, and one other - I've found I'm waking up cold in the middle of the night, even with a blanket over the duvet which is a fairly lightweight one but very good quality (and worth every penny as it's still lovely, soft and un-lumpy. I got it from John Lewis so I'm going online this morning to order a higher tog (do they still use tog measures for duvets?) one for winter. Another ouchy thing but worth it.
Well, better go. Duties call. Have a great old day and stay safe and well. xx
