    can I ask what date your birthday is ?

    DH is the 14th and recall doing this last year, but he has nothing on his card,

    I've just had a live chat with them, as I never got anything in September, but they say he wont get a birthday bonus till the 14th

    someone asked where rubicon drink for shopmum was-

    DH found it in the world food aisle

    I was at the dentist - going back next week for a filling and the remains of a tooth that wouldn't come out when I first had it done in june..
    Our dentist is closing at the end of the month as they cant get for a qualified dentists, over 1.000 patients now looking dental practise and there are none around here 60 miles away being the nearest!!!!

    gosh poor you

    as I said earlier my dental surgery is closing at the end of the month, I had an inspection today and it was the most thorough inspection I have ever had. He filled a tooth years ago, which he is refilling next week, but today he said I was biting the inside of my cheek..this again has been going on for years, but its only today he picked up on it and then filled down the filling- in doing so he caught my cheek, and by gum its sore,
    It will be even worse next week with a large filling one side of my mouth and an extraction the other side

They are either side of my two front teeth. I tried to get him to do the two front teeth as well but no so I had three needles and he took the different coloured fillings out and has done quite a good job sorting them thankfully.

    I ll be able to have a cracking smile soon bubbs

So all the works been done just need to take the old ones off and have a load of putty lol in mouth ready to make new ones and they put a temporary crown on till they're done . Good job too as they usually file down the tooth to a point , then I'd look a cut.

    I had a friend that swore by those extra long ones - you know the ones that you put 2 slices in the same slot. Are they even still around? They used to put the bread in those the long way round.
