Just back from a very relaxing week away (in north Norfolk, since you ask) to find a small disaster. Our 2018 batch of sloe gin is ruined!! :'( The sloe/sugar mixture had started fermenting and smelt foul. With hindsight we should have added the gin before we went away - it seemed to be fine then - although we have left it a lot longer in the past. This has never happened before, but it has been such a strange summer of weather we think that must have affected the sloes. Luckily we still have about 9 bottles left from 2015 and 2016 but we may have to ration it...  :(

Cheers (or not),

Chris

Had the 6 monthly visit to the fang doctor last Friday morning and am faced with either 4 veneers or 4 crowns. The cost is pretty much the same but he tells me crowns will be much more permanent so crowns it is. Let's just say that's 10 locos worth! :'( :'( :'(

My better half just had a crown fitted. Cost me £475. Hope yours are a bit cheaper Mick.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Sympathies Mick.

My NHS dental practice usually has three or four dentists. For the last six months they’ve had one.
Result? The crown replacement I need has been ongoing for two months! :( therefore I’ve had no crown now, just a root canal repair so far, for the whole of that time.
Trouble is it’s one of my top front teeth, so I have a rather large hole in my smile that my 5 year old grand-daughter describes as “disgusting”.
Should get a temporary crown on Thursday, I hope.

I’ve decided they call it a ‘practice’ cos they are always practicing ON ME! :D
N.B. Using the American spellings here just for fun.

The problem originated when the hospital smashed my top 4 front teeth whilst resuscitating me when I was having my triple bypass 2½ years ago (emergency intubation). The dentist built them up again with amalgam but they've become discoloured and now it needs to be a 'proper' job.
I do like to smile nicely at people but not at present :no:
