Time flys !

I cant believe I havent done an entry for five days ,I honestly dont know where the time goes ! Maurice has gone off to work so I got up at five thirty ,in order to put that right .....

On Sunday Mark (my eldest son) came to see us with Chrissy his wife ,then in the evening Derek my next son ,rang ,he lives in Dorset ,to say goodbye, he is off to Korea for a week ,on  a business  trip ,I will get all the details on his return ,and share them with you ....We laughingly decided that at ten thirty,the next day , we would both be sitting back with our legs in the air ,him on take off and me in the dreaded dentists chair ...so yes, Monday morning thats just where I was ,I had my injection to numb the tooth that was to be filled ,and while that was taking effect ,Droda my Polish dentist cleaned and polished my teeth ,oh how I hate that ! and then for a couple of days ,I felt so uncomfortable ,poor old teeth ! like me they have been around along time and should be left alone !!.....

Yesterday Maurice took daughter Kate and I to the discount shop ,where he works ,where we started our Christmas shopping ,and then on to visit Aunty Kitty ,who we found snoozing ,but once she had woken up,was on good form ,and we joined her in a rendition of 'Slow boat to China '!

When we got home last evening ,I didnt even turn on the computer ,but when I turned on this morning ,I found 116 emails waiting to be read ,103 journals ,now normaly I read them before I do an entry ,but today thought I had better post otherwise I might never post again lol ....I was saddened to receive an email from Rachel telling me of the sad news ,that her step daughter Claudia has passed away ,Naturally Rachel and her partner A are devastated ,perhaps you would like to send her your love and support at this time ,and I know we all want her to know ,we have her in our prayers at this time.

Tomorrow I am off to the news letter meeting ,for the Christmas edition,they come round so quickly ! Karen is to use my account of our London trip and the picture of myself with Bob the Chelsea pentioner ,so my contribution is already written this time ,so if I dont post tomorrow you will know where I am ,I think I might wear my new boots ....oh didnt I tell you !....I bought some new boots and er, well a new skirt as well ...so now Ive 'fessed up ,I will go and get on with my day ,I hope everyone has a good one .....

Welcome back Jan! I thought you'd been abducted by aliens! I'm glad Aunty Kitty is still well. I hat having my teeth polished, in fact I don't have it done any more since the last dentist to do it attacked them with gusto and removed some of the enamel so the nerves were bare. I can't describe the pain! I must get out and do some Christmas shopping too before my holiday. I hope Derek has a good trip to Korea. Jeannette xx

I hate a scrape and polish, my teeth feel all rough round the edges afterwards, not the effect you expect at all.

Enjoy your meeting tomorrow.

I HATE the dentist.  I dread going every time.  I will keep Rachel in my prayers.  What a horrible thing to happen.  I just love your signoff today!

siennastarr said...

I do not like the dentist either!  He always has to buy new side arms for his chair, because I squeeze them to death, when I have a visit! lol

Amazing how one is so busy they don't have time to leave an entry!  It's called a life!  You are fortunate to have one, my friend! :)

Hugs
Jackie

Well Jan, I have been retired for a month or so now, and do not know where the times go to!  The first thing I was going to do, was another entry in my much neglected Freda's Diaries, but haven't got around to it yet.  I have spent most of the time in the garden, but aware of the temperature drop each day:-( so maybe soon I'll be indoors long enough to do that entry.......
Lovely graphics as always.
Freda

Well, there you are!  I was going to send you an email today if you hadn't posted an entry.  I was beginning to worry about you.  So glad all is well.  I bet you look adorable in your new boots and skirt!  I'm envious that you've started your Christmas shopping.  I'm going out today to buy a birthday present for 2 yr. old, Andrew. If I see something for Christmas I may grab it too.
Hugs,  Kathy
