My tooth (or at least my jaw) was giving me a lot of trouble last night so I quite happy to be off for an early appointment with the dentist. She took out the stitches which was a relief then rinsed the hole with Corsodyl and packed it with a soothing clove dressing. And it's hardly ached at all today. I have Corsodyl and oil of cloves at home so things are looking up.
Then I had coffee and cheesecake with my friend at Lindsay's. As usual we had a lovely time chatting. I just had time to pop into a couple of charity shops before I needed to be back at the car. I got lucky and found myself a floral blue Per Una skirt at the Oxfam shop. I bought it to wear to work on the assumption that we might have a bit more hot weather. Today was a little fresher in the breeze but still nice and warm. There are weather warnings out for thunderstorms and heavy rain tonight so when I got home I mowed all the grass. I resisted the temptation to paint the back door in case the gloss paint, which takes a long time to dry, gets spoiled by the rain. Instead I painted the top half of the kitchen door after taping up the rest of the glass panes.
On my way home I stopped at another friend's house. She had phoned me saying that her sister wanted to clear some shrubs and would I like to take them. They were 2 large variegated evergreen shrubs, a laurel and a euonymus I think. I've planted them on the far side of the stream where they will provide some winter foliage if they survive.
