Mmm.. guess where i went today? I really hate the dentist 🙁 In fact, though i’m not really a big fan of these things, i think i really might have to consider practising some sort of calming technique for the final 2 fillings, because todays was awful.
Granted i only had 3 hours sleep, thanks to Josie who was solidly awake between 1.30am and 5.30am. *Sigh* And granted i had only remembered the appt at 10pm last night and granted the Dentist, with some kind of mad, sadistic moment stuck his metal pointy thing into the cavity to show me which one he was going to do.
That really hurt 🙁 And made me cry and i shouted at him. AND it was a good 10 minutes before i could compose myself enough for him to do the filling and even then i shook all the way through. The nurse told him off too. 🙄 I think i’ll get myself dentally fit and then start paying for a Denplan dentist who speaks enough English to understand i do actually have a bit of a problem with all this.
Anyway, eventually got that over and went to retrieve girls from Tammy’s. Big thanks to Tammy for late notice sitting 🙂 They’d had a lovely time, but they were all very tired and i really wasn’t pleased with how little “give” they were doing. Poor Sam just wanted to play and they weren’t being very nice to him. I think they forget that he is still just a small really. I was a bit embarrassed. Sigh. Early beds happened tonight. Fran has been remarking wistfully about how much she liked Sam’s Lincoln Logs all afternoon.
Back home we did a few sums, a few sentences, a little reading, some dvds, made Beefburgers as part of my new “better food” campaign and gave a nod to the SOTW Roman cookery section. The burgers were great and all got eaten. Then Auntie Kate came round and they all played Sylvannian Families. Finished off with gym and then some more The Horse and His Boy. It’s has much tougher language than the other two, i think it’s going over their heads a bit.
I’m beat, it’s been a hard day. Driving home from delivering parcels, i saw fireworks going off and it gave me the chills. I think lots of diversion techniques are going to be required over the next week or two.
On the up side, Josie did two steps without holding on to anything today. It looked so strange!
BTW, Alison and Chris, Amelie has decided she wants to come and stay with Buttercup, without us. She is going to walk, apparently, so can you let me know when she arrives?
