I also noticed that the workmen had returned outside my house - they seem to be digging much of the grass verge trying to find something - it needed mowing before so I guess that's saved me a job! (You would dig a smaller hole to bury a coffin!!) Since its on the chilly side here, and threatening rain, I popped out a couple of times with some mugs of tea and coffee which were gratefully received. And then I remembered one of the challenges was to do 7 acts of random kindness in a week - so this is my challenge for this week - to do something every day which makes the world just a tiny bit nicer for someone.
Mind you I then completed the back of my quilting block and sent that off - which was another challenge completed, whilst a blog entry from a former student talked about creating marzipan scones and another challenge had been to create a new scone flavour .......... I'm wondering about marzipan and apricot scones ME!!
So - I set off to the dentist with some trepidation - clearly my mouth couldn't hurt unless there was a major problem! As it was the dentist looked and said that the tooth was fine but that I had an inflamed gum - I had to soak it in salt water and keep taking pain killers for 5 - 10 days. If it was still as bad after that he would take the toot out - its right at the back, difficult to access and one that I don't use - hopefully the soaking will help and avoid that outcome though!
Talking about soaking - this was the sky on the way home. I just got in before the heavens opened but it kept on for most of the afternoon - ever feel another snooze coming on? Darn that nice warm conservatory and those comforting sofa throws!!
And finally (said that that newsreader style of course) I have just come across this. How about this for your next craft project Happymum?
