Try both a warm pad and a cold compress on your cheek to see which works for you.

If you organise a scarf to hold it in place so that your hands are free, remember

* to remove it before answering the door

* to take a picture and post it

:)

Broadcasting from the moon...
Opening a parcel I picked up from the Post Office (it contained two Diane Duane books and an Uncle John's Bathroom Reader - Actual Factual is the title of this Bathroom Reader), and reading an email that another book I'd ordered will be delivered at 4 this afternoon!

Signing for and opening the parcel that arrived five minutes ago. The two books inside are The Garbage Pail Kids book and another Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

Finished my first meal with upper and lower dental plates fitted this afternoon (£2,400). Hmmm - not sure about this.

Bad Bungle.

I had all my teeth removed about twenty years ago following a 'mishap' with my motorbike.

I tried dentures for a year or so but was never comfortable with them. They made me feel 'gippy'. So I don't use them at all.

I have no problems eating except I can't bit into apples of raw onions.

One thing you must be careful of..

HOT SOUP.

By the time it is past your plate, if it is too hot it will burn your throat badly.

Funny thing is, very few people I talk to have noticed that the teeth are missing.

INT21.

Trying to get the bottom plate out of my mouth so I can go to bed - the f*cker is welded into place

Mopping up vanilla slice mix as the bowl slipped and went everywhere.

Having our car delivered after a respray - I scratched it very badly a week after we bought it (second-hand) negotiating our 1960s underground car park at work. It looks as good as new. I won't use that car park again! One of our local resprayers/repairers makes most of its money from people driving around our local Waitrose's underground car park, so I'm not the only one. Now I'm off to the doc's to get a repeat prescription. The excitement, eh?!

Debating on who sang 'Only You' first, The Flying Pickets or Alison Moyet?. I'm honestly not sure without checking Google.

So it wasn't the Platters version you were talking about.

Tbh, I just recalled the flying pickets' was a cover and it was around 1984.
That's the only song I've ever known to have the effect, in a pub, of nearly everyone putting their drinks down and joining in.

Maybe we thought we were all in the video? It's set in a dire spit-and-sawdust joint, the sort that used to be common years ago.

Excellent suggestion. I have a unopened bottle sitting not 30 feet from me.
How are you feeling now Lord L? I had three taken out last Monday too and, well, I am still not out of bed. Pain is controllable with painkillers but I feel knocked out. I am wondering when I can get back to work.

I was making the big, big mistake of lying down on the bed with my iPad after a weights workout at the gym.

I have now set.
