Awake at 4am in agony with horrendous toothache - painkillers taken then snoozing, up at 7 and out and down the road for a bus around 7:30...

By 8:40 I was at the dentist...

Around an hour later, this...


The offending tooth removed in three parts, including a gold crown...

Removed by these...


I now have matching spaces...


As to how this might affect me, we'll have to see...

A bus home, whilst upon which I received a text from TalkTalk advising their engineer had been mucking about with our internet and I was to text back either "fixed" or "not fixed"...

Upon arriving home, almost inevitably, the text was sent "not fixed" - another hour long telephone call, by which time the anaesthetic had worn off and I was once again in agony...

At the third/fourth attempt, it seemed we'd finally got to the bottom of the problem and it appeared matters were resolved, however, I advised I would monitor for a further 48 hours just in case...

(Update : Matters remain unresolved!)

A visit to my mum in hospital called off due to pain and tiredness and so, a phone call instead - she has had a few other visitors over the last couple of days and so was reasonably happy...

I have not watched any telly now for two days - since all my series are finished...

Rest undertaken before recording the next podcast...

Just after 8pm, I set off to drive to Glasgow Airport to pick up the ladies - succeeding in staying awake on the drives there and back, despite the rather large painkiller intake and lack of sleep...

It took an hour from landing for them to appear at pick up, then, due to night time roadworks, the convoluted drive home took 90 rather than 60 minutes...

And so, home around 1am - a very long day...

Tiger had popped by to say welcome back to Anne...


Booty...





Good to have the EP back...

And June is away...


Highlight of the Day : Tooth out, EP home...
