Coming Soon…

27 Aug

…The conclusion to my London tale.

Thank you all for your good wishes.  I am on the mend but I have spent today catching up with some of your blogs.  Don’t be offended if I haven’t visited you yet; I follow a LOT of blogs.

Tomorrow, I’m off to the hospital to see a man about a gag.  I will take two buses there at the crack of rush hour to be fitted for a thing in my mouth that I don’t really want but which is supposed to stop me snoring.

If the dental doctor ends up with my breakfast on his shoes, don’t blame me – I gag if I put too much food in my mouth (it’s why I can’t eat trifle) so how they expect me to sleep with a plastic wotzit in my gob I really don’t know, but doctor, apparently, knows best.

Of course, if I choke to death in my sleep on the plastic wotzit that’s bound to cure my snoring, so the Hub’s all in favour of it.

Anyway, the ordeal of taking four buses and rubber fingers poking around my very private mouth probably means no London post tomorrow.

    Hope the procedure isn’t too stressful…well depending on the bus rides…it may seem just fine….take good care.

    I have one of those mouth “thingies” but mine was to keep me from grinding my teeth. Once I got used to sleeping with it in my mouth, I started grinding the “thingie!” Pa-tum-tum!

      I also wear a gum shield at night to stop me grinding my teeth – it has been a God send as it stops me waking up so often with headaches! Tilly you will get used to it – I forget to take mine out sometimes in the morning until I come to eat my breakfast. Best of luck with the buses and the dental procedures – the worst bit I find is when they try and get the mould off your teeth. Sally

    I actually thought at first that you were visiting a man at the hospital for an actual gag or joke to write about to make us laugh, am I daft in the head or what? Good luck with the buses at rush hour, my sister sleeps with a plastic oral guard to prevent her teeth grinding, it works and she sleeps much better. My cousin in France sleeps with the whole contraction to help with his snoring and sleep apnea and he raves about how much better he feels so hopefully that will be the case for you. Fingers crossed. 🙂

    A wife being fitted with a silencer sounds ominous. Preparation for undetected husbandicide?

    Glad to hear you’re on the mend!

    Like benzeknees, Jan has one of those plastic thingies (or it may be rubber??) to stop him grinding his teeth (it was that or me murdering him due to lack of sleep!!). He’s currently on his second, having ground his way right through the other one. At least grinding the thingy is quieter than grinding his actual teeth!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
