The week started with snowflakes, hailstones and sunshine.
The menfolk did a run to the tip with the old fence panels that blew down a few weeks ago and I did some ironing. I blocked out my Hugs and Kisses blanket and started to think of what to do next. I thought that I really should finish my High Tea Floral blanket before I started anything else but I'd seen so many gorgeous patterns I found it hard to control the urge to order more wool.
Tuesday was an early trip to the dentist. I thought I was going for a filling but it turns out that the nerve in one of my wisdom teeth has died and I have several options of what to do next.
1. Have the tooth filled but live with constant abscesses, as this is a side effect of having a dead nerve. Cost £62.50 plus £9.00 every time I need an antibiotic and I might still end up having to have it taken out.
2. Have the tooth taken out. Cost £62.50. This is not an horrendous idea and is the least invasive. As it's a wisdom tooth it isn't one to worry about so much.
3. A bridge. Cost £750.00+. This involves grinding down perfectly healthy teeth to make a bridge of false teeth to fill in the gap!! Even the dentist wasn't keen on that idea.
4. An implant. Cost £2500.00+ For one tooth. Not happening!!
Later I edged my Hugs and Kisses blanket and tidied up my craft space. I was going to try and finish my High Tea Floral blanket but decided on something new altogether, using wool I already have in. Back over to Lucy at Attic24 and her Dune Blanket. Lots of lovely shell stripes and back to something I haven't done in ages. There is something quite calming about stripes. You don't need to think too hard or keep an eye on the pattern.
Wednesday I was back at it, with it being the bathroom's turn to be blitzed.
Thursday I went to work for a few hours. The new carpet was down in the office and the furniture was in place. Mrs W and I managed to get everything back in, and working, so it's now in a presentable state ready for work on Monday. Home for lunch and a few more stripes.
On Friday I found myself reading my mum's blog. Mum passed away in 2016 but I felt like she was right there with me and I could hear her voice. There may have been a few tears. ♥
The Younger Male had 5 of his friends round on Saturday. All socially distanced, rule of six, in the gazebo, in the garden. I got myself booked in at the hairdressers for next weekend. I can't wait.
Sunday was a trip to the garden centre for some more veggies for the greenhouse, another tidy up of the front garden (it seems like all the leaves in the road end up outside our front door), doing some ironing in preparation for work tomorrow and adding a few more rows to my shell blanket.
What a quick fortnight it's been.
I hope you've all had a great weekend.
