Marvellous May Already?

Golly, another month has gone by already.  It's May and OH's toothy saga goes on!  This morning he rang the dental surgery for an appointment and was asked to be there by 10.30am.  Marvellous! (I thought) we'll get this sorted at last! WRONG....the nurse looked at the gaping hole and pronounced the gum healthy so they could do no more.  According to her it will heal in it's own good time.  OH must carry on eating food which doesn't need much chewing and swoosh out the socket each time with salty warm water.  I am absolutely convinced that a stitch in the gum at the time would have ensured that it healed within 2 weeks (mine did) Talk about a stitch in time saves nine......

Okay, so today's lunch was yet more HM soup, leek and potato, using the sliced leeks I had frozen a couple of weeks ago.  We are eating out tonight to celebrate my Brother's birthday.  Heaven knows what OH will eat but he is determined not to spoil the celebration, bless him, and he's treating us to the meal too. The following two days meals will be Quorn shepherdess pie with mashed swede, very easy on the gums, and then fish next.... all nice and easy to prepare...... :/

I hope you all enjoyed the Bank Holiday yesterday, we just had a quiet one with lots of reading and pottering after doing the 'main' shop (still within budget this week as I'm not buying any meat)

Take care and thanks everso for popping in x


  1. So sorry to hear that OH is still uncomfortable, what a sweetheart treating you all to a meal that he will not be able to enjoy.

  2. What a shame nothing more could be done. Hope the birthday celebration goes well regardless.

  3. I hope OH found something on the menu that he could eat without too much discomfort.
    Glad you had a nice peaceful Bank Holiday-x-
