This and that

The other day, I was reminded that I hadn't actually been to the dentist in a long time; so I called them today, and found out that the last time I'd been round for a checkup had been in March 2004. Huh. So now I've got an appointment for Feb 11th.


It was my sister's birthday last week, and so we celebrated the fact this past weekend. I was going to get her a new ironing board for a present, but changed my mind at the last minute and bought her an mp3-player instead. I put a few of her favourite songs on it, too; and I think that as far as she was concerned, it was the best present I'd given her in years.


I never thought I'd say this, but I almost regret having lost all that weight, as it means that none of my favourite clothes now fit. This includes my beautiful winter coat that I bought last year, which is supposed to be form-fitting, but now hangs off my body like a sack. I think I'm going to have to find somewhere where they can alter clothes, and hope they won't ruin it.


This evening, there was an e-mail from Ben, David's management, confirming that they'll see me in Leamington Spa next week. That is assuming I can find my way out of Paris and onto the UK, of course.

Hmm - I think if I was your sister I would be much happier with an MP3 player than an ironing board, too!

Good luck at the dentist - my teeth are at least not painful any more!

I am not going to say 'sorry' about the coat - I am going to say 'Congratulations'!

It's just that I couldn't think what to get her that she could use...then I remembered that she hasn't had an ironing board for years, but instead uses the dining room table. She had a house fire some years ago; an ironing board wasn't high on the list of replacement furniture needed, apparently.

But then I bethought myself that it might be a devilishly tricky thing to wrap, and abandoned the idea. I'm glad I gave her something she could get excited about instead.

Gah. That reminds me that I need to go to the dentist, too. And I'm sorry that your clothes don't fit. That is too bad.

There are some clothes I haven't even worn yet, and now I never will...But it's also the perfect excuse to go shopping for new stuff in Oxford St next week!

sounds curiously similar to an email I got tonight too..I hope he has been inundated.

Did you enter that competition for Storys tickets I Imd you the link to? Closing date is 1 Nov. It is a cheap gig - but nothing is cheaper than free.

You IM-ed it? I haven't switched on my computer for a while; I'll make sure to do that and look for it as soon as I get home tonight!

Hmm. I can't find it -- mainly because I don't know how to look up the message history, I guess. Oh well.

    That must have been so hard, on both of you! Now she can settle in and you can relax.

    I feel your pain - it took me weeks to clean Frank's room.

    It must be a relief to have seen her sitting and chatting.

    I wish you well with the house clearing. I'm not sure if this is helpful - but it took my sister and I at least one full day a week for a…

    Oh my goodness! I can just feel that horrible sinking in the pit of the stomach when you realised and there was nothing you could do about it.

    I'm glad the move went so well. It sounds like it might be a great place for her.

    I'm glad things turned out okay! (Other than the rhubarb.)
