Saturday

I was running about checking tv signals. For weeks now the Telly in the bedroom    looses its signal. I thought  first  maybe the signal strength  at night was lower. NO. Down to Bad weather NO Was the tv ok I know its not very old.NO. I checked the little blackbox outside. NO. I give up. A cuppa coffee later. Brainwave. The box in the back of the wardrobe. . Oh dear I couldnt pull the plug out. 2 Pairs of pliers and out it came. All corroded. Thats it. A new little connector and whopee A signal. I wont know 100% untill bed time?

Teeth problem getting better. Still heavily swollen . Still cant  touch it. But it seems to  be getting a little smaller.

Ive tried working on  maves book today but I  seem to have had a mental block. I tried several time but  couldnt face it. Maybe tomorrow.

Friday

Tooth saga. Ive not slept  comfortable  my mouth is so sore. The bleeding has stopped now. But  the gum is so swollen and it looks like it has splits in it. I just cant touch it. Swallowing is painful and speaking is agony. Thatll please mavis. I thought toothache was at an end but  thats not how it feels at the moment. i am hoping by the end of today it will have got better.

*****

6 pm Gums a lot better. I have just eaten my first meal since lunch yesterday. Just took it slowly . Not  too bad still tender. But some of the swelling has gone down a bit. Roll on tomorrow.

Sorry to be a bore. I need something I can get my teeth into ( joking)

 

Thursday

teethoutWell it was Dentist day.  I was dreading it. Would he treat me today or  not. I could feel the  anxiety  building in the waiting room they were  running late. That didnt help.

At last Come in please  take a seat he said pointing to the dreaded chair.

How can I help he asked. I have 2 broken  teeth  that need to  go. Lets have a look  That HMM! was worying

I need to xray this  he said. So  more waiting. Ok  Xray seems ok he said.

Would yo u be happy to  have them removed today. My lips said Oh Yes please but my heart  was saying NO NO NO. Just lay back  and I can give you  the anesthetic. I thought the needle was hanging out my bottom jaw it was painful. As soon as I thought thats it his assistant handed him another one. Down the side of  my teeth  deeper and deeper. At last thats all done. But NO yet another one  more  stabbing. OK  we can wait a bit he said.

After what seemed ages he lowered the chair. Open  for me he said. In came the pliers. I shut my eyes and waited. I could feel the  downward pressure and feel him wiggling . I  heard it scrape  against my jawbone rather than felt it.

Next same procedure on no.2 that one was pretty quick same noise.

Next he started on the third one. I think it was a problem I  heard it crunching he was pushing , at one point he held my  bottom jaw while he was pushing and twisting more crunching. Clunk he tossed the pliers in his bowl. I thought thats it. But No  he reached for a bigger set of pliers. He moved up  behind me and started again. He said something to the assistant She had a tube in my mouth and was sucking  like mad. Next he was packing loads of  packing over my gums.  more mutterings. Please bite on that for me. I then had to  sit waiting with a mouth full of  packing. He  changed all that  and said Ok  all done. Please leave that in  . Dont eat or drink anything hot tonight he said. So I thanked him and paid up and walked back to the car. Mavis  said god what have the done to you. I mumbled 3 teeth out and it wont stop bleeding. I think its down to my anticoagulants pills. But No more tooth ache. What a coward.   Thats my day.

Wednesday

I havent done a lot today. Did a bit on the book. Watched a bit of TV. Walked Louis. Yes I know Boring. But its not been a nice day. The lane was flooded most of the day. And with speeding cars trying to drown me. Not Funny.

I am not looking forward to my trip to the Dentist tomorrow. But needs Must.

Ive just realized my little shelf is working  quite well. All my bits plugged in and charging each out of  the way.

Tuesday

I got an email telling me that the book I published yesterday had been rejected today. It said The Title of the Book was not capitalized. HuH! That means because I called it I am a mesowarrior instead of I AM  a Mesowarrior it had been rejected.

So I took the bull by the horns and decided to  withdraw it instead of revising it. I didnt like the Minimum Price they had set on it. So  I have spent all day again  editing and re formatting it again.

Then I  had heart in mouth and  got to the publish page where it said revise or remove. I  slowly pressed remove. Wow! Now I was where I was yesterday. No Book available.

Several hours later after editing reformatting and converting I was ready to  publish again. But First it had to have a cover designed again. I think that was  stressful. I spent ages using their easy design wizard. Easy my backside. It was not  self explanatory. I constantly got locked out. It just would not  do what I wanted. Then in frustration I pressed some buttons hoping  it would work. At last success. A new cover was born. It was now ready to finalize.

Here I was able to  set new perimeters  most important was minimum price.

Amazingly I could set it at under half of the  fixed price yesterday. Its now £5.00, much better .

Pressing the publish ready and wait with baited breath.

********** Up in  little green letters your book has been published .

But it said that yesterday!!!. Next it was necessary to  update all the links. I think Ive managed it.

I dont think  this publishing game is worth the effort.

Monday

Ive made my Dental appointment. Its Thursday 2.20. Whats the problem she asked. I said Ive broken 2 teeth. Oh  we Can look at it  on Thursday. But we cant extract both of them on the same day. Why not????

Ive had double teeth extracted before.

Been working on  Maves book again, My battery charger died on me tonight. Oh well nothing lasts for ever.

Other than that its been quiet today.

Sunday

I got there Teresa its Sunday. The hour  made a difference. It confused louis. I must buy him a watch. .

My mouth has not been so sore today ,but its covered in Bonjela. That helps.

Ive been hard at it again on mavis`s book I am determined to get it published shortly. Ive spent a lot of time over the past year on it. Ive picked it up  done a bit  put it away forgot it but I  recently picked it up again. And last weeks problems re publishing Her First book all over again  spurred me on to get off my backside and finish it. I already have strong ideas for book 3 and its hard not to drift into it while writing  book 2.

By brain is shot here because  in my ear in the background I hear the wailing willies .
