Feeling very sorry for myself again. Just spent the morning at the dentist’s again. Definitely in need of a big hug now. Had the prep work for a couple of crowns done and it just seemed to take an eternity of drilling. The dentist also took some casts of my mouth and I had to sit there with my mouth stuffed full of dental plaster. Kept making me retch cos it was so big and I thought I was going to throw up but be unable to due to the huge plug of dental gunk. Have a very sore jaw now and am warned that it’ll probably be rather painful once the anaesthetic wears off. Also have a couple of temporary covers on my teeth for the next two weeks. They look hideous. I look hideous. I was going to have a quick wander around town after but felt very self-conscious and came straight home instead.
Crikey, almost freaked out when my dentist told me that I’d have to make ANOTHER appointment to have some fillings put in. I’m already ecstatic as I have two more appointments lined up this month and the prospect of MORE work filled me with dread. Was about ready to run from the room screaming when he realised that “oh no, I’ve done them already, sorry!” Aaaaargh! Don’t do that to me!
Plymouth with Nicky was fun yesterday. The highlight had to be hearing Nicky explain to a short middle aged woman who was trying on a pair of red platform Buffalos in TKMAxx that actually, the shoes she was trying on weren’t for sale because they were hers. Poor lady turned into a beetroot and was mightily embarressed. Hilarious.
Nicky took me out for lunch to Walkabout where I had a feast of a chicken and mango salad. Poor Nicky however had to send her noodles back and get a refund because they were so salty and disgusting as to be inedible. Wondered whether the Australian accents that all the staff brandished were real or fake.
Looks like Nicky and Mel could well be arranging a sort of Hen Night for me on the 20th in Plymouth. I don’t want to jinx anything as we wouldn’t have had the Embassy interview yet, but as there is only one possible date for a night of alkyhol and debauchery between now and the wedding who am I to decline?
Oh and I’ve arranged to go dress hunting with mum on Saturday afternoon too. Must go get the Landy, big game bait, elephant guns, butterfly nets and pith helmets in shipshape order.
