- I had two fillings earlier this week.
I now have a new admiration for the numbing agents they have at the dentist. They work incredibly quickly. I mentioned this to the dentist and he explained that the gums can take it up much faster than skin (I was comparing it to my experiences with emla cream, which takes an hour). He also said he's allowed to use stronger stuff in Australia compared to the UK (he's an Essex boy originally!)
But still - needles. Just like my most recent blood test, I'm getting braver and didn't give prior warning that I'm nervous about needles.
But I did close my eyes (looking away doesn't quite work when the injection is in your mouth.) And in my head I'm thinking -
'Try and relax, think about something else.
Think about something nice.
Think about.... little fluffy clouds'.
And then my brain goes:
'little fluffy clouds, little fluffy clouds,
li li li li li li li li li li li li li li li li li li li li li little fluffy clouds'
and then this classic by The Orb is lodged in my head for the rest of the day. Which is fine. This song is magic.*
Of course I have to include some cloud pictures. This picture is extra awesome because as I was taking this picture they started playing the song on the radio.
- I've given my sleeping habits a bit of a review this week.
- In new heights of slobbery this week:
Another cloud pic because I love pictures of clouds and songs about clouds.
- I have this strange sensation of oversharing with this blog.
*If you know what I'm talking about, it's probably stuck in your head now - best play it out. Turn it up loud.
If you don't know what I'm talking about - check it out! If it's not your thing skip to about 1 min 30 secs to see what I'm on about.
** We only have 2 knives that are good for spreading, the rest are too pointy, so it's not like all the knives in the house were dirty, just 2. And I don't like to just wash one thing as it wastes water.
