I’ve been laying low this week past week as my impacted wisdom tooth has flared and the pain has zapped my desire to do anything. Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve kind of enjoyed not doing anything (I’m not enjoying being behind on things though…). It’s given me time to spend with the boys, it’s allowed me to do some slow stitching and it’s made me realise that I really need to start being stricter on myself when it comes to having a break from the business. The timing has been a bit pants as I was laid low with what I now know was the gastro bug sweeping the Little Man’s kindy. (Kids! They’re like outbreak monkeys!)
I can’t complain though because I’m actually really lucky. I was told 13 years ago to go and have this wisdom tooth taken out and like all good dental patients I ignored the advice. This is only the second time that it’s been painful so that’s not too bad. However the time has come and as with all good things they must end and so I’ve got an appointment tomorrow with an oral surgeon to talk about having it taken out, which will probably happen in the next fortnight. And yes, I know you probably have some horror story about wisdom teeth and surgery that you’d just love to share with me, but for the love of all that is quilting cotton please don’t. I’m a massive hypochondriac at the best of times and so I don’t need my imagination fuelled any further. But thank you for thinking of me! *wink*
It’s a big week for body related things as I also have my regular skin check up this week to check back in on a mole that looks like it could be turning nasty. (Again, something else I’m worrying enough about without the horror stories!) I grew up in Tropical North Queensland and I’m so pale I’m practically translucent. If it wasn’t for the fact that I’ve got more moles on me then a dot-to-dot picture you’d never be able to find me. I have a really strong family history of skin cancer and melanoma and so I’ve always been a slip, slop, slap kind of girl but that doesn’t stop me from worrying about my skin and going for regular check ups.
