Ooh, I've found a hole!





“Ooh, I’ve found a hole Mrs Willliams,” said Mr Smiley gleefully, “I shall have to drill out the old mercury and refill your tooth with some shiny new white stuff.”  Yes, it was my bi-annual visit to the dentist this afternoon.
“What have you been doing Mrs Wirriams, your teeth are so stained” said the hygienist.  She was oriental, small and pretty and dressed all in pink.  I’ve been drinking cups of tea and plenty of red wine and I have no intention of stopping.

I really dread going to the dentist and I’ve been jittery all day.  Now I’ve got to go back for that wretched filling next month and it will be murder driving into Bath and fighting with the Christmas traffic in December.  (All the roads here in the UK seem so congested after the empty roads of France, queues and road works everywhere.)

Rick is off to the vets tomorrow morning to have his claws trimmed.  Paul will make a big fuss of him.  Sometimes I wish I was a dog.

  1. If you don't like congested roads, you should perhaps consider the Lincolnshire Wolds for your new bolthole. I have found you two properties. The bill for my professional service is in the post.

    1. Nice properties Mr Pudding but Rick says he wants a bigger garden.

    2. Will three quarters of an acre be enough for him?

    3. That's more like it, but just needs to be 100k cheaper.

  2. I'd much rather have my nails clipped than my teeth drilled.

  3. I don't mention the 'D' word. I clip Bok's nails myself; he's never complained.

    1. The vet said they didn't really need doing and only took off a tiny bit.

    1. I have a lovely dentist now but I'm suffering from years of bad dentistry when I was younger. I get so anxious whenever I have an appointment.

  5. Hope that filling goes well! I know what you mean about years of bad dentistry as we had a dentist, called Mr Buzzer, who came to our little village school with his treadle drill and performed almost medieval acts of torture on us.

    1. Mr Buzzer - oh my goodness, sounds like a horror film.

  6. I have such a bad dentist past that I could almost not comment on this post.

    1. There were some truly sadistic dentists about in the past. My present dentist is lovely but I still get that feeling of dread when I know it's time for a visit.

  7. Oh, Sue. That sucks. I hate the dentist, and have had such an ordeal for the last two years that I tremble sometimes when I get in the chair. I went last month and had a filling done and to my surprise it wasn't too bad this time. So I do sympathize!

    1. There always seems to be something that needs doing when I go. Bah!
