Cowart's Common Room

Yesterday was SO not my day. After the key debacle outlined in OUCH below (and, with ref to Jane's comment on that where DO you get key safes from?? sound just what I need) I then tucked into supper and cracked my tooth on a rogue bit of (yes, free range, bone-free) chicken. Am I feeling sorry for myself or what. And it would happen with E merrily canoeing down the Tarn and so not here to say kind things. Of course, being in the mouth, it feels enormous, the sheered off bit, and rough and just wrong. Am dreading the dentist. And the dentist's bill. Do hope that today is better ...

Oh what a pity. If we had known E was canoeing on the Tarn we would have gone and cheered him on. Bright sunny but a bit of a cold wind. So lovely for getting wet!

Ouch Milla, I equally dread Dentists.

Hope the rest of the weekend is less fraught !

Next door has a key safe, I'll ask where they got it - it's a little box placed discretely that you have to tap in a PIN to get it to open. Great idea , except M can never remember her PIN Laughing She's given us a key too, as has N opposite, we are more reliably home and able to let them in Rolling Eyes

Westerwitch's Avatar Eeeeeek the dentist will be ok - lot better than they used to be - smiles brightly - secretly dreading dentist. Ouch to the bill though.

Now making lots of 'there there' noises - all will be fine . . . and brewing up a disgusting sludge of soup in case you can't chew.

Cait's Avatar The only way is up now Milla. Good luck at the dentist.

hi Milla, thanks for stopping by!
sorry about your woes. I am too familiar with dental dramas.Over here they blame it on my british childhood. What nerve!
My lovely dentist once said that short of marrying me and providing round the clock care he didnt know what else to do. Certainly gave me something else to think about while his fist was in my mouthShocked

Milla's Avatar Now that is NOT going to happen! My dentist is even more accident prone than me. All this reminds me of that Armstrong and Miller run of sketches which probably haven't made it over to your side of the world. But where the dentist of Armstrong muses on the most inappropriate things (cleaning the loo, dealing with road kill, rude things, etc) while doing unspeakable thigns with drills to the squirming Miller beneath. The squirming Milla! That's me. What am I doing, adding to my own torture!

Frances's Avatar What a weekend, Milla. You are collecting far too many ouches! I hope that you can get a Monday appointment with your dentist, and that the rest of the week is filled with a bunch of welcome, happy surprises.

Fennie's Avatar As someone who has been there, done that, got the tea-shirt, Milla you have my full support. Look at the ceiling and dream of the Tarn. But worse things do happen at sea.

Kat's Avatar Oh Milla, things will get better! Luck on the down side runs its course and things begin to look brighter again. Just breathe and keep your head about water. The tide WILL recede.

Jackofall's Avatar Key safe boxes looks like the sort of place, Milla.

Pondside's Avatar More big sympathy, Milla. There's something so insulting about hurting oneself while eating - not fair at all! I hope you have a gentle dentist and one that believes in lots of freezing - that's the way I get through my sessions in the dental chair.
The week can only improve after this. I think that your husband should be given a 'heads up' though, so that when he comes through the door he will know enough not to complain about aching muscles etc etc and be suitably solicitous of you!

Withy Brook's Avatar Pondside has a good point about your husband. It might not work, but it might take his mind a little bit off the fun and the aches etc Hope the great new week is starting OK

Milla's Avatar I thought it was a tame little list, the sort of stuff that happens to us all. I thought the more exciting ones were in last year's 8 ... and I haven't even got onto escaping the Kings Cross fire by the skin of my teeth, or just missing hte ferry that caught fire and sank because we caught the one before because a million ulcers exploded in my mouth and we had to get me home to a hospital, or being eletrocuted in Denmark or or or. It's my brother who's got the interesting list (airlifted out of Albania by the SAS, tsunami, floods in New Orleans, field hospital in Pakistan with Black Swamp Fever, etc etc.) Thanks for the keysafe stuff, Jacko.

Exmoorjane's Avatar Horrible horrible horrible anything to do with teeth - also horribly familiar...that ghastly, 'why the heck did I DO that' moment that comes, when all is lost......I bit someone's head at a disco (as in my teeth connected with his head while laughing, not biting) and tooth chipped, then died (VERY painfully over Christmas when no dentists on call for anykind of money). His head, surprisingly, was fine - if dented (oh, never thought abotu the origin of dented before).
Milla - do get a key safe - but be careful. The one we have is fab - very easy but the one we put on Mum's is a nightmare and we can never open up with it.
Ours is called a Master and would hvae been the cheapest going cos A bought it (from a hardware shop if I recall) swivel the numbers round, like on a suitcase, rather than poking them in (though not all poking in ones might be prap like Mum;'s).

ChrisH's Avatar What have you been doing, girl? Exactly how many broken mirrors are lying in pieces over your house. Here's wishing you a much better week.

Posted by: ChrisH on 13th Apr 2008 at 07:11PM

Milla's Avatar the fire, the ulcer, the near miss on a ferry, the electrocution didn't all happen this week Chris, I'm dipping back into my past a bit. Hope you're better, too?
