The Toothy Tale Continues....And Craft Fayre Woes
Poor OH is still suffering after having his tooth extracted. The socket is still wide open after more than 8 weeks and he is so fed up. Last week he visited his own dentist, the one who had referred him to the larger practice in the first place, who has now decided that something more needs to be done, referring him to the local hospital, this time to extract the impacted wisdom tooth next to the original extraction. Apparently the wisdom tooth could be stopping the healing process. Now, as OH had originally asked whether this tooth needed to come out and they had said no, he is NOT best pleased. Heaven knows how long he will have to wait for an appointment so he is still swooshing the socket after meals and cursing roundly as he does so. The poor chap has lost half a stone in weight (no snacking!) and will become a shadow of his former self if they don't hurry up and sort it.
It was the craft & local produce fayre this morning and I set up the stall full of enthusiasm...
Hardly anyone came through the door :( As the £5 charged for the tables goes to local causes, I agreed to try one more time in July (sucker, aren't I?) I've got a handful of advertising leaflets to distribute around the village so I hope next month will be better (yes, I know....I'm an optimist!)
The good bit of news is that I bought a large home baked iced lemon cake for just £2 from another stall holder so we can have a treat for tea. If I had taken more money there would have been lots of other things there to tempt me to part with it, handmade jewellery, scarves, hand painted tea light holders, hand decorated canvas shopping bags.......the list goes on.
Have a great weekend folks x
