Dentists, Part Two
March 1st, 2017 by

Part One here I saw a different dentist today, and the difference was astounding. He was nice, funny, had degrees out the wazoo (it is my understanding that this is a technical term) and had previously worked as a maxilliofacial surgeon. And it was NHS, not private. They DO exist. :) His claims about being […]


Dentists, aka I am not the enemy
February 28th, 2017 by

I’m going to have to vent for a minute, since I still feel shaky and as though I’m going to be sick after just getting back from the dentist. For most people those visits probably aren’t pleasant, but they’re a necessary evil…unless you have a crippling phobia of Evil Bastards, I mean dentists. Backtracking for […]


Onward Into 2017
January 16th, 2017 by

…like a herd of geriatric turtles, as it happens. :) We were sidelined over the holidays by that horrible flu/chest infection thing that seemed to be sweeping the country, which put a damper on the holidays until well after New Years. Horrible stuff! I’ve very slowly been getting back into the swing of things with […]

How incredibly cool would that be? The Nottingham Night Market, while sounding […]


Going Forward From Here
November 22nd, 2016 by

Just a short post to say that I’m still here, sort of. Depressed, sure…but who isn’t? I’ve been binge-watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix when I can and it’s helped a bit with the blues. Yes, I realise that I am firmly sticking my head in the sand but it’s so lovely, this false world of […]


Going On From Here
November 11th, 2016 by

I am feeling human again today, barely, after surviving an absolutely cataclysmic hangover. I say this as someone who once drank most of a bottle of Gran Marnier and had a four day hangover while LIVING ON A BOAT. You think you’ve had a hangover? Try having on while being on a rocking, lapping, creaking […]
