It's also been a long time since we've not had visitors or I've been travelling and as great as it is to have the house to myself and catch up with chores and just relax, the days been incredibly long with Peter at work.
34 Sunday Up early and off to the other side of the city for 8am and the dentist. 1 tooth extraction and mould made for bridge, I'll need to wear for 6 weeks, while the gum heals, then an implant, a further 8 weeks to heal then a new tooth will be in place. Afternoon spent tidying, watching movies and walking for an hour or two after the rain storm we had.
35 Monday A full day at home catching up with all the upstairs housework, washing and ironing. I mad the beds, cleaned two bathrooms and swept half the desert back outside.
36 Tuesday Off to the dog park then back to the dentist at 1pm for a deep clean of my gums, 5 teeth extracted and a plate fitted. Afternoon spent sleeping and shivering.
Getting cold over here in the mornings.
37 Wednesday Swept the sand off the balcony and the garden, rearranged the plants to get maximum winter sun. Went out for coffee and food shop, spent the rest of the day in front of the TV.
38 Thursday Cleaned the downstairs of the house, now the whole house and outdoor space is clean, tidy and welcoming.
It takes forever to get the pet hairs out this rug and then they ignore their comfy beds to sit by my feet on the rug.
39 Friday Breakfast with friends on the beach and our new sofa for upstairs was delivered in the evening.
40 Saturday Trip to the bank, coffee out and a food shop.Afternoon and evening spent on new sofa sorting paperwork and paying bills.
Cat and Dog had a spat.
