Nodding off...

If I am going to keep getting up at 6am with the EFG to leap around with Davina, I have got to get to bed earlier....it does mean that once I am up, I am up, and I took advantage this morning and had a lasagne in the oven, shortly followed by an AF-mix ginger cake, and they were both done before 8am.  Then I sat and finished off a scarf in my knitting, and organised my contact details for all our gymnasts, ready for tonight.

My dentist visit this afternoon was painless, until I got the quote for the work - it is £146!  I paid £18 of it today, and £50 of it is a price for a bite-plate to wear at night, to protect my teeth from my biting down and grinding whilst I am asleep.  The trouble is that if I don't have one of those in the near future, the chomping down is going to damage one of my front teeth and loosen it to the stage where I may be in need of a gum-transplant!! Shock, horror - really don't like the sound of that, so I think I may have to have the bite-plate.  Apparently it is like a gum shield that hockey players wear, but fitted specifically to my mouth after they take impressions.

I have a while to organise the finances for that as the next appointment for a filling is not until the 10th October.  

Hope you are all having a good week so far xx

Yikes, dentists! They can be so expensive, but obviously something we do have to do!

Also thanks for the update yesterday we Silversewer - it's always a worry when a blog disappears so it's nice to know she is okay, apart from having to deal with those useless nasty trolls!

I've gone all peculiar again at the mention of dentists and things being stuck in the mouth - wish you hadnt put that picture on your blog!!
Good luck with it and paying the bill!
