Good luck Tim - you should be about to sit in the chair as I type. Oddly enough I have a checkup at the fang fairy myself at 2 today. Last two times she has tried the hard sell on teeth whitening which I have managed to bat away but I get the impression my dentist sees me as a piggy bank rather than as a patient.

Well it ran 30 mins late as they had to use the downstairs surgery where I was scheduled for an oap who could not mange the stairs to the one where she was scheduled. I saw the upstairs chap come down, why my dentist couldn't swap I know not.

So today they decided to do the two fillings. two anesthetics to left/right upper sides. first one done, and she moves over the the far side and a couple of pokes, a scrub with some emery and refers to x rays and decides it is already filled and no treatment necassary. (I wonder if that was because it is lunch time and she is running late?)

So back tomorrow for two of the 3 extractions. Sat in the waiting room I hear them offing appointments in December, yet when she said to me at the desk can you come anytime? I replied the sooner the better. Is tomorrow OK? Wow I was expecting weeks.

Good luck Sir Trev, I hope you don't have as rotten teeth as me. The legacy of poor dentists, fillings that fail leading to crowns that last days before breaking away. pity my dental plan will not fund implants.

What are you on about Mavi? I did a MyHermes order today and you have to select a weight range and it clearly states the maximum parcel size AND it warns that there would be additional charges if the limits were exceeded.

Implants are so expensive in the UK. 4 years ago I had 3 implants and a crown while I was in Turkey at a total cost of about 1250. Two visits were needed at least 3 months apart. Lots of people who holiday in Turkey get dental treatment while there as it's so much cheaper than in the UK.

My gripe.
Having to waste my days at work when there are many, many, many other things. Some even enjoyable, that I would rather be doing.


It's a never ending re-run of Ground Hog day.

Yes, work gets in the way of doing stuff we'd rather being doing, although it does pay for the stuff we want to do.

Attended the funeral of a colleague today, who died two weeks before he was due to retire

Two weeks, two weeks! You work all those years, and you don't even get to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Try and do the things you want to do, you never know when your time is up

That's really sad Mav, such a shame to spend so many years working towards a reward and never to realize it. Must be a terrible thing for family and friends too.
