Well it started last Friday with me and my swap partner (see last post) posting off our parcels. I got mine Monday. As for Sarah Monday came and went, Tuesday nothing, Wednesday nothing, so now im in a bit of a panic. Having tried Royal Mails Track & Trace it would seem the parcel was "in the system", this really doesnt help. Anyway cutting a long story short I arrived home this afternoon to a lovely email saying that the swap had been received :) I can now show you what I made and sent :
A Tatty Owl pincushion
A felt bird hanging
A button heart brooch
A felt egg cosy
One of my mixed media paintings
Tiny felt house
I had to go to the dentist today, my hubby also had an appointment. I havent been to the dentist for about 7 years, why you ask? Well where I lived before I had to go and get a tooth seen to as it was hurting so much. The dentist (a women) was new to me and at the first appointment she said the tooth will need to be extracted, on the second visit I had it taken out. She gave me an injection in the upper gum, before she did this I thought it would be OK as i'd had quite a few injections without too much pain. Well how wrong can you be? The needle went in and i'm sure it must have been about 10 inches long, it kept going up and up into the gum DESPITE me grabbing her arm and trying to pull her away, the pain was indescribable, she ignored my attempts at trying to stop her and kept going. She had injected the main nerve and I was at fainting point.
I remember letting out a yell and she finally stopped, I had no choice but to sit there and wait until my gum had numbed before she yanked out my tooth. Needless to say I walked out of that practice and never went back.
Its the first time I had ever been afraid of a dentist so today's visit was a big deal for me. Luckily I was told that my teeth were OK and they just needed a clean and polish. So I was very relieved :)
None of us want to end up like this
But it only takes one bad experience to set you back years.
