visitors today

Hi all. Today I had mum and 2 of her friends over for lunch. It was a lovely day, too hot for me really but we had a nice lunch with ice cream and tin of fruit for desert with a lovely refreshing cuppa for after. We were able to sit in the summerhouse, and a nice day was had by all, Linda x

Poppy discovering the puddles over the field

Hi all, Poppy discovered the puddles over the field in her walk today, one of her favourite pastimes. No rain today, makes a change and it's quite warm, had to take my jacket off while out on my walk, Linda x

A sunny day, hurra

Hi all. Well after weeks of rain today we finally had a whole day of sun. I have cut the grass and as the recycling was a day late I'll get rid of my cuttings too, that means they won't stay in the shed and smell for 2 weeks until the next collection. Hubby and I went shopping today, all exciting stuff, I know. Later I'm going out on fox watch. Think I'll sign off as there isn't much else to say except the fuel seems to have come down again and I paid £1.43 a litre for diesel in sainsburys, cheapest in Guildford ATM. Off to make a cup of tea. I believe the weekend should be sunny too, fingers x'd, Linda x

Lovely flowers

Hi all, I think I mentioned a pupil passed her test 1st time last week, well on Saturday I had a lovely bouquet of flowers and chocolates delivered from her as a thank you. It doesn't happen very often but when it does it's a lovely surprise. I've been fox watching and as I've found out, people either hate them or love them. The other morning we actually had one come into the garden and it sent the girls mad. I was making toast at the time so I wondered what the noise was about. I was taking the girls out last night for their last walk and came across a den and I came home for my camera and there are 4 cubs in the den.I saw the vixen coming and going a couple of times, the cubs are adorable, sorry for all you anti fox people, I like them. The programme on channel 4 has a live den cam and the other night I didn't get to bed until 1.30 as I was watching the cubs playing and feeding. It's been raining on and off for most of the weekend, but there you go.I'm going out later to see if I can see the foxes again. On the pond I got a bit of footage of 2 canadian geese with their babies, very cute. My tooth seems a lot better now, no pain but I still have a hole there, still eating on the right hand side as well. It's funny because when I sneeze it really hurts the gum where my tooth was.

Pain then relief

Hi all, I woke up at 4.20 this morning with a terrible throbbing face and had to go and take more tablets. I was that fed up I sent my dentist an email at 4.50 telling him of my woes. I went back to bed and managed to get a bit more sleep. I phoned the dentist after a reply asking when I could get back to see them. I had a 2 hr lessons changed to a 1 hr so I popped into the dentist and this time he packed it with something different. He said it was still yucky in the socket and the new packing will make it's own way out in a few days. It makes such a difference when the tooth is packed, it stops the pain almost immediately.Hopefully this is the end of the story. I was looking online again about dry socket and as long as the bone is exposed there will always be pain, so now I know. I had a pupil on test yesterday and I'm pleased to say she passed first time with only one driver fault, fab news. I text her today to say well done and she has already been out "flying solo" as she put it. Out of my last 5 pupils 4 have passed 1st time, now I just need to replace them as work is low again. Today I managed to cut my grass as it hadn't been done for 3 weeks, it looked so unruly and unkept, anyway it's tidier now but by no means perfect, not that I really do perfect anyway. Guess what, no rain at all today either. The other night I was woken up at 1.40am by a tremendous clap of thunder, it was so loud it must have been overhead, then we had lightening and it was pouring. I hope no one here is affected by the awful floods that have been shown on the net or in the news. Off now to let the girls out and I think the lack of sleep has caught up with me and I think I'll get the blanket on and go to bed, Linda x
