I had to have a wisdom tooth out so am feeling sorry for myself. What a terrible business. I had forgotten how much it hurts and it took hours and hours to stop bleeding which was a bit worrying. I am taking life easy and being waited on hand and foot whilst watching Father Ted videos.
So, anyway, no more updates until tomorrow I suspect.
RE: Dentists (answer to Simo below). I have landed on my feet in that the local one is taking on new NHS patients. I have not been to the dentists for quite a long time because I could not find one taking on NHS patients or indeed in Eastbourne (which happens to be the home of the Dental Practice Board, the people responsible for NHS dentists) any dentists taking on new patients at all.
