Sorry I haven’t been posting. What have I been doing? Oh yes, getting a root canal. This was something I’d been DREADING but it was okay in the end. I hate the sound of the drill so I listened to music on my phone and headphones (101 Running Songs if you’re interested).
It’s quite embarrassing – I was so wound up by the time my appointment came around, I ended up behaving really quite oddly once I got into the dentist’s surgery. There wasn’t anything I could put my finger on but you KNOW when you’ve been a bit strange. Perhaps the dentist sees this quite often.
The dentist who did it isn’t my usual dentist – they have a specialist root canal dentist. He was very calm and seemed to have fantastic powers of concentration – I was in the chair, having full-on treatment for over an hour and a half. And I still need to go back for Root Canal Treatment Part Two (after half term).
What else? Ah, yep, I pulled a muscle (in my bum and thigh) which has been agony for nearly a week, particularly when I’m in bed (so am getting hardly any sleep). When I sit still, I can feel in the muscle just above my knee twitching. Ugh.
Plus, the antibiotics I’d had prescribed gave me galloping diarrhoea (word I have finally learned how to spell). My Mum said that I had to eat natural yoghurt, even if I didn’t fancy it.
Overall, someone should probably just shoot me now.
This has been rather a moany post. Sorry about that. Here are some pictures of the crystal trees that my children have just done (they came in their Christmas stockings, originally from Tiger).
On a more positive note, I am LOVING the piano. My piano teacher sets me homework and I’ve just started using the black keys (sharp / flat notes).
