Hi
At last a chance to sit and catch up a bit.

I am trying to be a good girl on my days I work a 9-5 and not switch on my computer, but rest and slob out in front of the TV, with an early night. There is still loads and loads to sort out, so I don't want to push myself like I had to last year. Hopefully I shall slowly be able to increase my "working" time, but at present I am trying to be sensible (shock, I know!!)

Yesterday I went to the dentist for my 4th appointment - which in theory should have been the crown placement. However on appt 2 (after the nerve removal) I was sore while she was drilling, and then the area hurt for the week, so last week it was no treatment but penicillin, however no change. So yesterday she took all the filling out and re-x-rayed, and drilled, cleaned, and put an antibiotic liner in, before re-sealing the root area. She was quite upset because if this doesn't work I lose the tooth. As it's a tooth #2 she is upset. I don't care about my own appearance (in fact I never ever use a mirror), but she is upset. So I had to comfort the dentist as I know she has done everything she can. The area is very sore, but whether that's the antibiotics working or not, I wont know till Friday ... watch this space.

Saw dad only briefly yesterday as he was in the activities room helping with a wall hanging ... well, he was sitting and laughing as the activities co-ordinator teased him into saying he was in charge of the 6 ladies there. Great to see him happy.

Sorry, I forgot the camera yesterday, but as I was dentist, then an hour at Mum & Dad's doing more clearing out nothing to photograph. So I thought I would share the pictures I took on my phone last week. The camera is not great (to me a phone is just to keep in contact!), but dragonflylady77 challenged me on Instagram to post a nature picture a day for a week -

Those photos look fine on my PC, it's amazing how good the camera phones are these days.

I'm glad you are taking it slowly and are feeling better.

I think I just tend to spoil myself with my SLR, even if I am usually lazy with changing the settings.

Yes, trying to be a good girl.

I haven't had quite the dental events that you've had, but over the past 3 years or so my dentist has had to put crowns on all my teeth that had silver fillings. Which was quite a few. He says we're done for now, so I'm grateful for that! I hope you find some relief for yours soon.

I have already got 5 crowns and have never had this problem ... so will have to wait and see if the latest treatment works

Thank you - it had been feeling better over the weekend, but sadly very sore today, so I wait and see.

I guess it must be much cooler where you are -- magnolia is a bellweather of the arrival of spring here. Lovely photos!

I love Magnolia's ... where I grew up our neighbour had one in the front garden, and as you say as soon as we saw it we knew winter had gone.
