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.

if I was your sister I would be much happier with an MP3 player than an ironing board


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.
