Evening All :)
Yesterday afternoon, I found myself at a loose end while Sweet Cheeks amused himself making mud pies in the garden, and I felt like getting a little messy myself. Out came the pre-colourerd panels I keep for when I realise I need a card for yesterday, and some of my ink sprays. I wanted to make the panel look a bit aged... not sure I'd be brave enough to try splattering an image I'd coloured myself!
It was my plan to post this up this morning. But, about three minutes before we were due to leave the house to visit prospective nursery's and schools for Sweet Cheeks, (never on a day when there is absolutely NUFFIN planned.) I lost a filling whilst I was cleaning my teeth. Well, I say I lost a filling, technically, I didn't lose it, as I know exactly where it is. The point is, it's not in my tooth. Aside from the obvious, this is a problem for me, as I, like a lot of people, am Dentally Phobic. And this morning, I wasn't registered with a Dentist either.
The filling in question has done really well because it was only a temporary one to start with. When I asked the Dentist how long it would last for, she told me two to three months. When I asked The Doc for his medical opinion, he muttered something along the lines of over cautious dental practitioners and told me I could easily double it. Ha! This baby did me for over a year and a half. Mwah, mwah Devon Dentist.
Anyway, when I was speaking to the Emergency Dentist this morning, she told me you can get a temporary replacement filling kit from the chemist and it's the exact same stuff the Dentist would use. Naturally, I was at the chemist before the phone had even registered it's hang up click. There's enough putty in the tube to do ten fillings, so, by my estimation, if a filling falls out after a year and a half, I don't need to go back to the Dentist for fifteen years!! Happy Days...
