Split Tooth

Thank you for all the lovely comments about my bunting and supportive ones about my tooth. I don't know how, but I was complaining about the wrong tooth! It wasn't my baby tooth at all, or even the one next to it, but the one next to that. It broke in half, vertically... I didn't like it! I managed to get through Imogen's performance, Chicago (which was rather fabulous) then took to my bed for an early night. Luckily the emergency dentist fitted me in at 1 the next day, it was very busy there. The dentist was lovely, he said it needed extracting, gave me the necessary injections and pulled out the first (broken) half of my tooth. He then spent a while examining it and decided to give me a temporary filling to tide me over and a prescription for some antibiotics if it starts to get more painful (I haven't needed to take them). As the nerve wasn't exposed, the dentist said we may be able to save the tooth. I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon with my own dentist to have a proper filling, so fingers crossed all will be well.

After the grey skies in my last post, it's back to blue skies and sunshine again. Andy harvested some carrots... not looking forward to peeling the twisty ones.




Our kitchen has been hotter than the conservatory today. I've had a gammon joint roasting away, phew. I'd already taken it out of the freezer yesterday to have for tea today, we had it with boiled potatoes and salad from the garden, so that was rather lovely.

I thought as I showed you it last year, I'd take a photo our lovely Hydrangea bush, it's covered in glorious bright pink blooms and I love it.




The heat isn't bothering the cats. Mitzi has been spending her time curled up asleep on cosy throws and cushions, doesn't she look sweet and oh so very relaxed.




Take care

  3. So glad you are getting sorted out with your tooth Cheryl.

    Those carrots look very tasty. I would just scrub them well and cook them. I couldn't be bothered to peel the twisty ones...lol.

    Your Hydrangea looks gorgeous. DD managed to save mine from dying but it hasn't grown true to the colour on the label which was dark pink and lime green. It has grown solid pink. I do love it but I sure did love the label colour more-x-

  4. I sure do hope they can save your tooth. I have been having tooth pain today and am hoping it's just sinus pressure or something and not actual problems with my teeth. I'm soooo tired of it. I go to the dentist to begin the process of getting one of my many cracked teeth capped next week. Crossing fingers I don't lose any more teeth. Keep us posted on your progress.

  5. Oh bless you Cheryl. I hope they manage to save your tooth today and that it's over with without too much discomfort.
    It's lovely to see the carrot harvest. We pull up a few of our each day for dinner. X

  7. Hi Cheryl, Sometimes when it isnt the tooth we think it is ... this can be called deferred pain & it is very common. I am glad you got your tooth sorted as there is nothing worse. Mitzi is beautiful & that hydrangea bush is stunning ... one of my favourite flowers.

  8. I've heard it mentioned before where you get a pain in a different tooth to the one causing the bother, how extraordinary. Hope you manage to get it all sorted out. Your hydrangea is beautiful, such a rich colour, and Mitzi is so cute, I marvel at how animals manage to make themselves so comfy.

  13. Mitzi looks so comfortable. My poor cat is rather put out right now. He doesn't like the dog being in the house - they really don't get along at all. I seem to be spending most of my time separating them.

    I hope you get your tooth fixed and maybe they can save it.

    1. Poor thing, she must feel her space is invaded. We have 2 cats, one of them really doesn't like our dogs x

  14. Mitzi does look cute. Hope the tooth can be saved.
    Forget peeling the carrots, give them a scrub with a new nailbrush that you keep just for scrubbing veggies, works a treat and keeps the goodness in the skins - do it for spuds too.
    Enjoy!
