I posted a long time ago about my phobia of the dentist, and yesterday things stepped up a gear as a day I was both dreading and looking forward to arrived. I have been waiting a long time for a tooth to be extracted, as it had cracked after being filled and was beyond repair.…… Continue reading In the dentist’s chair-the ‘high as a kite’ sequel
Last week, we were given permission to begin working on the new allotment and start moving our old allotment things over to it.
