Teeth...or rather a tooth!

The last couple of days I've had a niggling toothache, which by lunch time today turned into full blown facial agony. So I had to ring round for an emergency appointment, 'cos we can't get an NHS dentist where we live. Fortunately I struck lucky and found one. Not only that they took the girls on the NHS list although I had to pay £90 just to be seen! So no more ordering of anything because the treatment followed which was Part 1 of root canal. Part 2 follows in a couple of weeks.

Unfortunately it's also infected so I then had to pay for a prescription as well for antibiotics. Which leads me to how I feel now - which is horrible with a fat face following 3 injections. However the girls have now gone off to bed so at least its peaceful at last. Obviously today they decided they fancied doing some 'work'. Isobel worked on a spelling book and Hettie carried on planning her dream house ready to copy into her main book next week. They played with modelling sand for quite a while although nothing in particular was built.

Not so lucky on the bird box front as a big crow landed and started hopping about, and then he went and stuck his head in a starling nest on next doors roof. Neither blue tits or starlings have been seen since. Oh well, at least we had some interest.

Oohh you poor thing, I'd rather have a baby than toothache! I hope you feel better soon, I think a medicinal Brandy might be needed!

Ouch ((hugs)) I haven't got a dentist and haven't had one since mine was struck off 5 years ago, the practice was taken over and went private. HE sound nice and mellow and happy. Don't give up on the birdbox. I bet they come back. Tits like a very small aperture tho in the front.

I've never had a root canal, but it sounds just awful! I hope you will be feeling better soon.

Keep us updated on the birdhouse, ok?
