Not tooth toothache


For the past three days I’ve been suffering with appallingly painful, but, thankfully, intermittent toothache...or so I thought. A visit to the dentist this morning proved to be an expensive waste of time, after much prodding and poking about with a scarery looking sharp thing and a set of x-rays, the Dentist admitted he could find nothing wrong. My teeth are healthy...So, after another episode of agony, I trotted off to the doctors...who was also a bit stumped...He prescribed some pills that kill pain in the nerves, one whole weeks worth...only according to the blurb, they take up to two weeks to work!

It’s still boiling hot...sleeping is impossible, (even more so with the not-toothache toothache)...Still, rain is forecast for next week, so I’ll be complaining about mud again.

Summer






How is your summer?  Mine has been very topsy-turvy.  We had some work done on the house...and a lovely new kitchen! So pleased with it. The downside being it has taken nearly six weeks to fit...living without a kitchen is very difficult, no cooking, so we have been living off salads, with the occasional bag of chips.

Follow the Herring


An illustration I exhibited in the 'Follow the Herring' exhibition at The Customs House, Tyne and Wear.

Wish the weather would cheer up.  It's so dank and gloomy and damp, or it's absolutely pissing down...the trails in the woods are so mud choked the puppy gets filthy! Her favourite game is to run full pelt through the mire, then fling herself at me...mud everywhere!


                                 Here she is, after I've washed the mud off...she hates it!
