At Least I'm Not Missing Out On That!

Due to the operation to have my wisdom tooth out yesterday,
I didn't sleep too well.
 Nice little reminder on Facebook, 12 months ago, it told me I was having chronic toothache.
Washing mouth out with salt water, and painkillers being taken.
Off to the Doctors for blood test.
Both arms being tight once more, 3 nice bruises later, still no blood.
Will try again next week.
At the moment I am missing coffee,tea and solid food.....;'(
At least I'm NOT missing out on hugs, kisses and nibbles......:P

Time To Lose More Wisdom #2

It's Hump Of The Week.
The day is finally here.
To visit my local Hospital to have two teeth removed.
Kalms tablets took before hand.
I did ask "Is the room was soundproof?"
After I screamed while they were trying to remove the first tooth
They understood what I meant!
Hubby was sat in the waiting room, hearing my screams
They numbed the gum again to remove the wisdom tooth.
Now I feel like I have been punched a few times in the mouth.
No coffee, only water and yogurt for a few days.
At least It's going to be a be quiet from me talking as well.
"Let's raise the flag and clap" says my cheeky hubby!

Much Prefer Hard To Soft Any Day!

It doesn't feel like a Tuesday.
Nice lie-in with hubby.
House was so quiet at 9am.
I made a nice cuppa and surprised my hubby with tea in bed!
Not looking forward tomorrow.
It's another Hump Of The Week.
It could go either way, good or bad
Hubby was getting ready to go to snooker tonight.
He was saying his tip was a bit hard.
I joked, "I much prefer hard than soft!"

Testing Of The Little Grey Cells....

Welcome to my Bank Holiday Monday!
We weren't in the mood to rush about.
Nice easy day at home.
Fixed the roof of the shed
(Got the tarpauling for free)
Tested our little grey cells on Words with Friends.
One child of ours won all of us in the morning.
Then when he was about to lose to hubby in the evening.
Down came the red mist, stamping of feet,
And he stormed off upstairs.
Oh dear......

Words Don't Come Easy To Me!

Happy Easter!
Making the most of the sunshine.
To burn off chocolate eggs and bacon sandwiches..
Nice 1.5 mile walk around the near-by lake.
Got a itchy baking hand.
So made some Easter cupcakes!
Then we all played Words with Friends.
Once I had a Ovaltine.
My brain started to work!
By 2.30am,I had won at least one game!
Hurrah!

Getting The Leg Over!

At last we reached Saturday.
Exploring Time again!
On the way there, we passed a dead pheasant.
We didn't stop in time to pick it up,
As that could have been tonight's tea!
We visited Pershore.
I found some car keys in a car park.
Handed them into the Police.
Didn't get much at all from the Charity Shops :(
On the way back we did some exploring some of Evesham's history.
We visited the Leicester Tower.
 We could have walked a few miles to see the Evesham Obelisk.
However heavy rain was due at any minute.
So back across the field to the stile to get my leg over!
That was a sight for some sore eyes!

Nothing Wrong With The Gear Stick !!

Welcome to Good Friday.
Since we woke up, so much has happened....
  1. Hubby's snooker trophies fell off top of wardrobe
  2. Hubby dropped and broke a glass out of the dishwasher.
  3.  Hubby made the coffee, it over-spilled in the coffee machine.
My day got even worst:
  1. Travelled to Hanbury Hall for egg hunt. It was full
  2. Red car didn't stop at junction, good job I know what the brake is for!
  3. Lost my glasses ( I have been wearing my sunglasses all day)
On a brighter note:
Found glasses (woo hoo)
Bought a new jar of Carte Noire coffee!
 (No cheap shit coffee in this house)
Waiting to hear from the CSA on increase maintenance payments
Cake and chocolate now allowed.
The Gear stick is in full working order!

Spice Up Your Life!

Welcome to my Thursday.
Thursday with a difference!!
Hubby off work, kids at school!
We skipped off to Webb's.
Nice coffee there.
Back to the hospital next week.
Urgent appointment to lose some wisdom!
More coffee...
The smell of roast lamb dinner...
Must have it...
Lovely, after I finished the final mouthful. 
James didn't finish in the top four in the "Chef Of The Year!".
He received a engraved wooden spoon for his trouble.
I said to him:
 "There must have been something the matter with the Judge's taste buds. 
As I enjoy a bit of spice!"

Is It Safe?

Up at 5am...
No breakfast.
Only a sip of water.
At the hospital for 6.45am.
Waited for 3 hours.
End result:
No bed available :(
Back on the waiting list to have the teeth removed in a dentist chair under a local  Anaesthetic.
Last time I had the above done:
 I was held down, screaming the hospital down, while the old boy was trying to rip out the other wisdom teeth with pliers. 
My late mum was the other side of the door wondering why I was screaming the hospital down!
It so reminds me of the film "Marathon Man" with Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier.

Reaching For Those Big Big Sunglasses!

Back on the wobbly work wheel
Wow the sun was out nice and early.
Quite warm,not yet warm enough to strip some layers of clothing off!
Enjoyed a late breakfast at Webb's.
Had to help James's get all his items packed up for his 3 course meal he is making tomorrow for his "Chef Of The Year" final.
Nothing to eat after Midnight,
As I am ready for my operation at Worcester Hospital early tomorrow!
12 months I have had to wait for it.....

Woo hoo we have reached Sunday.
Cup of tea and a nibble in bed, can't be bad!
We bought our meat order for the next two months.
Trying to fit it all in the freezer, that was so much fun fun fun!
Bumped into an ex-co worker from my old JOB 2 again.
At a Community Open Day at the Redi-Centre.
It feels like I am being Stalked!
Watched my son practice making his 3 course meal for "Chef Of The Year" for school.
He chose to do Moroccan themed  meals
The final is on Tuesday. 
He completed them all under 3 hours.
I did my share, by loading up the dish-washer!

They're Being Tight Again!!

Welcome to crazy Friday
My children was so happy with their cowboy outfits.
The happy cowboys were dropped at school
Survived the first shift of Job 1
Caught up with my blogs....
Then it was time to give up some blood for another blood test.
Arms wasn't giving up a drop...
3 times the Nurse tried, no vein was willing.
Try again in 2 weeks!
Someone parked too close to my driver's door in the Asda's car park.
So I had to climb over the passenger seat, double somersault, with a leg flick to finish!
Good job no one was watching, it would have made their day!

Found A Good Use For The Cowboy Whip!!

Welcome to a cold, dry Hump Day.
Potty mouth parent, attempted to cross over the road without my help.
It stood in the middle of the road for a few minutes, before any car would let him over the road.
Shame!
I have been chasing money owed,On the phone for a few hours!
Spent time tidying up the house!
I sorted out my cake ingredients cupboard.
Even found a chocolate bunny (From Last Easter) and two chocolate Santa's from last Xmas!
Bagged up the ingredients for James's cooking lesson tomorrow.
Most of their cowboy accessories have arrived for Friday.
The leather cowboy whip won't be took in, that's being warmed for use on hubby on Friday Night!

Nice To Feel Wanted!

I have had a mixed bag today.
Woo Hoo I managed to get a Doctor's appointment for this week.
Visited Dentist ( So I could get a letter for the Hospital to take out the tooth next to the wisdom tooth)
Cost £18.
Great.
Grabbed a quick take away M&S coffee.
One parent decides I am not really needed to cross the children over twice  a day.
(He is sulking as I am having 3 days off next week to recover from the Operation)
"There are traffic lights they can use to cross the road, so you ain't needed!" He said.
(Nice to feel wanted!)
Majority of parents want me there, only a minority don't.
Damned when I am there, Damned when I'm not.
Let's hope Hump Day tomorrow is a lot better!

Playing Cowboys....

Back on the wobbly work wheel.
Nice to see the sun out again.
One driver yet again, braked at the last minute and nearly took my legs out!
Collected my 3 pairs of glasses.
The Optician checked to see if my glasses fitted.
He said,"Your hat has fell down!"
My response was,"At least that's the only thing that's fallen down!" ;p
Wow, I can see a lot clearer!
Used my new glasses to use the Internet, to search for two fancy dress outfits for Friday.
After much discussion, one is going as a cowboy actor, Audie Murphy.
The other son is going as a cowboy, "The man with no name" after several Clint Eastwood films.

Nice To See You, To See You Nice #2

Sunday started with blue skies and the sun shining.
I was armed with a can of polish, duster and a pinny.
Wiped away the dust in the Living Room.
Played "Musical Chairs" with my ornaments in the Living room window.
We visited Morrison's, bumped into a man who was on my Level 3 Microsoft Word course at College 2 years ago. He was also on EXCEL level 3 with my hubby. Hubby scored 100%. 
The man didn't like that!
Then we visited the near-by lake. Bumped into ex-co- worker from my old JOB 2
 She is leaving there before Easter. 
I asked "If the other co-workers missed me?....."
Then there was a tumble weed moment.....
(I saw this cake, and it so reminded me of the answer I didn't get!)

Found The Reason!

Welcome to the start of the weekend...
Started Saturday off with a nibble and a bacon sandwich!
It was too late to visit Pershore.
So we visited Alcester instead.
Brisk visit around the Charity Shops.
Hubby forgot the list for Waitrose.
(He had a smack on the bottom for that!)
Just about remembered what was on the list.
The free coffee helped with that.
Now got my son's ingredients for this three course meal he has to make at school,
As part of Year 7's "Chef Of The Year!"
I meanwhile found out the reason why I need stronger glasses....
(I bought it from one of the Charity Shops)

Due to my cold and my knee hurting
 Back at my spot for Job 1.
It turned out to be Crazy Friday for traffic.
Sorted out a Dentist Appointment for next week.
(Before my Operation at the Hospital for Wisdom Tooth Removal in 2 weeks time!!)
Then I had the Good News!
The Pink Princess AKA The Money Pie AKA My car
Has been fixed....
Got a lift to pick her up.

Having Some Wisdom Removed Soon!

We have reached Thursday.
Still no car.
So a walking I go go.
Had my Pre-Op appointment for my wisdom tooth removal.
It looks like I am having two teeth out instead of one.
Got poked and prodded during my appointment.
The veins in my right arm was refusing to cough blood up.
So instead of using veins on top of my hand or wrist.
The veins in my left arm coughed up instead!
Hubby is going to have some fun to find the remaining 6 blue patches
That was stuck to my body to test my heart on the ECG test!
He will have a nice WARM reward if he gets all 6 :P
