#Dentist phobia overcome but not defeated.....I did it.....i had my teeth whitened!!!!

Warning....this contains items that some people may find distressing


I have had a phobia of dentists for as long as I can remember...obviously it is something I have had to address on many occasions so as i could keep my teeth in a reasonably good condition...but I have never found it easy to say the least.......the very idea would bring me out in sweats and anxiety attacks. 
But I also love nice teeth and I think it is very important to look after them.

SO it was after much thought and worry that I decided i needed my teeth whitened...(after 50 years of sweets...curries....wine...etc they were definitely over due !!! 😨 )
This is a brief account of my experience:

For once I didn't really do much research....probably should have. ..spoke to a few friends etc.  They spoke of sensitivity for a few days etc....some said they couldn't see any difference. ...and so forth.
I really wasn't prepared for the device they put in your mouth 😲 call me naive  ( but I won't answer to it ho ho ho πŸ˜‰ ) 
It was uncomfortable. ..not painful 
I had 3 x 20 minutes sessions which were interrupted briefly by another coat of the whitening agent....in all about an hour with this device in your mouth

It was almost impossible to speak.... ( which did not go down well with me )
And I had to keep still...again something I am not good at..
I didn't experience much sensitivity at the time but a few hours later I did.
It lasted for a couple of days..i took a couple of paracetamol which helped
I avoided colourful food and red wine for several days as advised.

It was not an enjoyable experience.....but i was pleased with the result....i think the lady had quite a tall order.....

this is a before and after....not mine i must say.




This is b4 ( and i am not happy that i have had to show it ) yuk!!!
         

But this is the after..So just need to get them straightened now...lol

It takes all sorts

People that come into our lives  

one of the things I like about my job is that I meet a lot different people.....no two days are the same....and some people leave a lasting memory.....

one such person was,,,,shall we call him Mr Sad ( a short 3 letter word that said a multitude of things about this man )
there is no disrespect meant by this label...it is truly how I saw him

' Good morning Sir, how are u today ?'
'Could b better ' was his short reply
he was an eldery man in his early 90's, he appeared physically healthy and of sound mind.  He was neatly dressed
 and well spoken.
I booked him in and asked him to take a seat until it was his turn.
He apologised for being early, to which I replied that it was absolutly fine and no need to apologise.
' I dont like to be late, but these days I'm seem to b even earlier....'
he continued
'My wife died a few months ago....and I seem to have so much time on my hands now.....we were married for over 70 years you know....she was my best friend'
I'm sorry for your loss, I told him
'We used to go dancing....we danced in the tower in Backpool u know....we'd already got our holiday booked for this Xmas'
He continued to relay several events of there lives
The fact that hed spent some time with his children since his wife had died...and that he felt he was in the way ( even though his children were very kind and very caring...he assured me )
'She wouldnt b very pleased with me ......mopeing about....feeling sorry for myself you know.....Get on with it she'd say to me...whats done is done.....move on!!!!'
Thats what I miss....the Bantor.......
When he left after his appointment.....I realised what an impact he'd had on me.......I wandered about him going back to an empty home....preparing his food alone....going to bed alone.....
So if you have an opportunity to smile at someone today or just spend a few moments to ask how someone is....then do.....
It might be the only bit of company they have today

Image result for smiley face

but its just that little thing....you know....yes we all have one....some are nicer than others....yep you guessed  Image result for smiley face bossthe boss.....
So I smile and bite my tongue...and thats not easy for me...and just keep thinking  
 'u can do this...u've faced a lot tougher situations than this...this is a walk in the park .....'  and then reward myself with a nice glass of wine......
To say I'm surprised that I still have a job is an understatement.....but I do.....and  have now been there for 7 months....wow     Image result for smiley face boss

Amazing Lip Balm

So  this little discovery is too good to keep to myself!!!
So here goes
It is exclusive in the UK, to #Primark, yes u heard it correctly. 
And u know I love a bargain. ( To b fair, I wasn't expecting miracles, but at £2....I thought I would give it a go) yes that's correct a whole £2 !!!!!  And in #Primark that's a lot !!!!
I have always had a bit of an issue with lipsticks if I'm honest and as I said I was a bit apprehensive. 
My lips are a bit sensitive 😚 (as I am myself πŸ˜‰)
Well folks I have been using it now for about 6 months and I love it😍.
It is a natural product as it says on the packet.
It keeps the lips moist without looking too shiny and I have also applied it before bed if my lips have been a little dry from sun or wind exposure....πŸ˜§πŸ˜‹.now now 😲
I have used this product occasionally as a base under my lippy and works well if u have allergy to lipstick ( as I do )
I did have a bit of a fright when I went to get some more.....
Cus there wasn't any !!!!😨
I thought typical.....found something I like and now it's discontinued  ( ( this happens to me all the time ) 
Well to cut a long story short  ( ok ok it already quite a long story !!!)
I ended up looking it up on line ( as u do 😊) found the distributor who was very helpful ( thank u 😊 )
She told me it was only available in the uk at Primark. ... ( I d already contacted all my local ones with no joy )
But the lovly lady emailed me a few days later to inform me knew supplies were goin out.
Fab...I now have a fresh supply😚😚
There are other lovly natural flavors but unfortunately not for the uk at the moment. 

Please excuse the blogging format as I'm on holiday at the moment😎 and working on my phone
Happy puckering peeps πŸ˜—πŸ˜™

#Skin Cleansing Brush #LloydsPharmacy......a peach of a bargain




Hi
Thought I would share this with you.        


If any of you have shopped these facial cleansers you will no they are bloody expensive....some are more than £100. 


so imagine my surprise whilst browsing the bargains in my Local chemist.....Lloyds Pharmacy ( as I do )  when I came across this.

I have often toyed with the idea of buying one of these ( well at my age you will try anything )  but have resisted the urge mainly due to the price !!!

This little number was reduced from £39.99   to £16.99     
So yes I thought I'd treat myself....I dont know how good they are but will keep you posted.
if you wouud like to bag yourself a bargain you will need to be quick....this little bargain ends at the end of the week.

This is one of the many beautiful sights we have seen over a few short days in beautiful Cyprus. 

Palatia
 The sea caves situated just along the coast from Ayia Napa heading towards Sterna.

The crystal clear waters caress the entrance to these amazing sights   nature at its beautiful best.
