One Daily Positive - Week 2 Still ill

Bloody toothache and a loose front tooth, give me strength. I am quite literally falling apart. The post snapped mid 2017 and the tooth fell out, it cannot be put back in again, and with bone disease, I need grafts before I can have implants, which would mean no top front teeth for 12 weeks while the bone graft heals, but I'm now at the stage where I just have to 'grin and bare it' pun intended. Dentist this week for a plan to be made and it's not going to be cheap. Medical aid won't cover this.

I've been struggling to find interesting things to blog about, despite having a varied life, it's just normal to me to have visitors and travel etc. In between life is just the same as it has been for the past 8 years.

I've started reading a bit more and have 2 books on the go. one on the balcony upstairs and one in the garden, just chick lit style,  but it gets me off the laptop, but slightly confusing as I move between the two books.

6 Sunday Had a lazy morning and popped out for a coffee and a walk along the beach, spent the evening at Global Village a huge outdoor complex with shops, restaurants, lights, entertainment, funfair and so much more. It's only open during the winter months but I did see they're constructing a huge mall.

7 Monday Went to Festival City Mall and met a friend, ordered a new TV unit for upstairs from IKEA and had some lunch, packed mum's suitcase in the afternoon, she over shopped as in I've inherited a 3ft tall reindeer and 4 cushion covers.

8 Tuesday Took mum to the airport for 5am, home, had breakfast and Peter went to work while Bob and I went to the dog park for the morning. Caught up with all the washing after changing the beds and moved all the books out the hallway which involved moving furniture. Peter thought I was mad just buying one carrot and one onion from the shop, but it was all we needed.

9 Wednesday Did a bit of cleaning and moved the furniture and contents into place on the mezzanine. Had a bath at midday, went out for coffee, food shop and to blog. Dentist at 5pm and pub quiz and dinner out in the evening. In between I was back in bed.

10 Thursday Dropped car at garage and spent 7 hours with my friend walking round the World's largest mall. I bought a tea tool. My life is complete.

11 Friday off to Abu Dhabi to collect my uniform and instructions for marshalling on the HSBC European Tour (yes the Golf again). I'll be escorting players from the 9th Green to the 10th Tee on the Friday and from the 17th Green to the 18th Tee on the final day, Saturday. This means I can walk down the course behind the final pairing.I've also been accepted at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic the following week, but child 2 and 2a will be visiting that time, so I may just do the one morning shift. In the evening we visited friends.

12 Saturday Collected sewing machine and overlocker that can't be fixed, collected car that was fixed, cooked a roast dinner and then went to bed. I've ended the week with a sore throat, nasty cough and a blocked nose.

On the blog this week:
Going Green and recycling in Dubai
I've got nothing to blog about, so I blogged about it


  1. Bad news on the tooth, I have a damaged one at the front that needs repairing and a giant chip out of another, but I really dislike the dentist, all of the children are booked for a check up in half term so I may have to join them. I love the tea tool, and I long for the day I only need to buy one carrot and onion! Hope you are feeling better very soon x

  2. Oh Suzanne, I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling poorly. I don't know much about the teeth implants, hope it all goes well. It must have been sad to part with Mum.
    Your golf uniform looks very smart, and the event is something positive and exciting to look forward to. I've never seen a tea tool. Now I wonder if I need one in my life as well.

  3. Aww! Bless you! Toothache is the worst and a sore throat, couch and blocked nose is not what you need at all. Sending hugs. Feel better soon!
    hehehe! It does look odd just buying one carrot and an onion but if that's all that was needed it would be daft to buy more.
    That tea tool is genius! Why have I not seen one before!

  4. Sorry to hear that you're ill again. The tooth sounds particularly painful. The house must feel very quiet and empty without your mum. More golf sounds exciting. I'll look forward to reading about it.

  5. oh dear with the teeth and what a shame you are still feeling ill.
    Yes your life sounds more exciting than mine but yes just routine for you.
    great to be doing the golf again.
    I am sure your mum will be missing you and your lifestyle.

  6. So sorry to hear you are feeling ill. Big hugs. I am sure your mum is missing you. The golf sounds fun xx #365

  7. Good luck with escorting people at the golf tournament. Sorry to hera about your teeth. Hope you don't have to 'grin and bear it' for too long.

  8. I do hope that things turn around for you.

  9. That's a shame about the overlocker. What a nightmare with your tooth, and the insurance not covering it. Eek. I'm still amused that your mum thought she'd ever get a 3ft reindeer in her case. hope the golf is going well #365

  10. Oh no sorry about the tooth issue!!

    Oh wow I didn't realise that such a thing as a tea tool existed!

    Hope you are feeling better now
