What a week!

Shoo, what a week. It feels like Ive been in a whirlwind. Im so glad that its Friday!


OK, so after my dental visit last week, I was fully expecting to start eating on the other side. Boy was I wrong. Ive been in AGONY, can hardly eat a thing and when I do the pain is so intense it brings tears to my eyes! So on Monday I call my dentist for an emergency appointment. I could only see him on Wednesday. Turns out he drilled a “little bit too deep” and now the new filling is touching a nerve! SO now I have to go for ROOT CANAL next week! I am so incredibly mad about this situation. I wanted to remove the mercury from my mouth and now I have to end up doing ROOT CANAL on that tooth. I was so pissed off, fuming in fact. After this root canal I reckon I’m going to get a new dentist.


Last night we didn’t have any electricity, it seemed to only be our street. It went out at 2pm and only came back on around 10pm! Needless to say we ended up eating out and then drinking gin and tonic at a bar!! It was great fun BUT I did wake up with a bit of a headache (could be from the sore tooth aswell? Maybe not…) and of course when I drink too much I smoke (BAD girl I know, don’t remind me). With the Sharks/Blue Bulls Game on Saturday it means more drinking I guess (cant watch that game without some sort of alcohol in me). Speaking of the “big” game Im proudly wearing my Sharks shirt to work today and I have pinned my Sharks flag to the entrance of my office! Nothing like trying to rile up the BB supporters!!


Talking a bit on the elephant in the room – DH and I had a very serious conversation the other day about our fertility treatment. We have decided NOT to use donor sperm, it was a difficult conversation. I’ll leave it at that.



Im sitting here with an aching mouth, went to the dentist this morning for a check-up and ended up decided to ask him to replace all my mercury fillings with the white ones, silly I know because this pain was self inflicted but Ive been wanting to do it for a while now. The only thing I cant handle from being at the dentist is the sound of that drill oh and the fact that you dribble for a while after!

Moving swiftly along to home renovations- DH and I have decided to replace our kitchen counters and install our gas stove! We have been toying with the idea for a while now but you know how it goes with trying to save for IVF etc. Suprisingly we got a quote the other day and its really not that much. We are replacing our shit-amine counters with 35mm saligna tops which is going to cost R4500 which in IVF currency is basically the change I get back. We bought a gas stove about a year ago which has been standing in our garage (sad I know) so that will be installed too – CANT wait, we both LOVE to cook! I’ll take before and after pics to show you guys!

On other news I see that Tertia announced her pregnancy, I cant believe it shes pregnant at 40! She needs to write a book to describe life after her twins, seems alot has happened to her since. I still cant get over the fact that s*x actually makes you pregnant, wow now thats a new one.

And in other totally random news, I started the pill last night, shoo pressure off for now!
