Today is Tuesday 24th August

Hello and good morning!
The day is cloudy but warm and what one would describe as ‘close’. There is a slight breeze so hopefully it won’t develop into ‘headache’ weather.

Order of the day is dentist! Hubby’s turn today (mine is Friday) and everything is already paid for. Deep Clean is the name of the game, though according to the NHS dental charges, a descale and polish is included in the check up and first tier price of  £23. 80 as standard.
Now the recommended ‘deep clean’ has been pushed into the second tier of £65.20. At least the dentist is doing it rather than a hygienist who charges £25 to £40 and attacks you with a chainsaw and mallet. I’ve had that done once and felt like hammered steak. My gums bled, and the stupid woman had tried to remove ‘plaque’ that was actually a crown.
They are blaming Covid of course for not doing the descaling at the initial appointment as it requires water sprays and exposure to droplets of saliva.

Other than that, we have a quiet day. Hubby has been working on his boat which is now fibreglassed and he is about to mount the engine………… except he’s come across a small snag and the brass plate he was going to improvise with is not brass at all but some hard scrap metal that has been sprayed and he can’t drill it. We shall be looking for an alternative in town.

Have a good day everyone. Keep safe and take care of each other.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hope hubbys dental apt goes smoothly and he finds the piece he needs in town! xoxo

    • Dental treatment was painful and he couldn’t find what he wanted. Add to that the idiots on the road trying to crash into us, it has not been a good morning so far!!!

    The dentists here never do the cleanings… always a hygienist. The one I have now is very good – and gentle!! Hope all goes well!
