I have found a plus - dentist yesterday - tooth canal. I have dental phobia. Normally three factors that combine badly.

I didn't have ANY pain and didn't freak.

Downside - I hadn't felt the infection forming, but the tooth is now packed with antibiotics (while we wait out the blood supply dying off). Bonus as it isn't oral antibiotics there's no 'don't drink' instructions for xmas!

Trying to warm up again.
Spent a second day house-sitting my son's house while he has new windows and door fitted.
Trying to keep warm while the wind is whistling through the large gaps is not easy.
Especially, as the guys doing the work were also having to put up with the cold. Thankfully, the rain held back.
The biggest problem was what to do; I could read my book or do some Japanese homework.
There are a lot of things I could be doing, but they required me to be at home.
Back tomorrow while they finish fitting the door.

i think Terry missed a new 'fairy' in Hogfather...

Namely the little blighter that keeps hiding one of my gloves.

Just one, when I give up on that pair it steals another one.

And of course the coup de gras of when you throw the remaining one away, a couple of days afterwards it sneaks back and returns the pair of it that it stole...

I think the Glove Hiding Fairy is probably quite closely related to the Eater of Socks.

I think the hat eater lives on public transport - I have lost two hats on buses in the past three months.

We definitely have a Glove Hiding Fairy.

We also seem to have a Germ Spreading Fairy. We've spent the last couple of months getting one thing after another. It doesn't help that we've had spring-like weather through December and January - in Michigan!!

I am now seeking lesser Manchester, for comparative purposes.

My town is a tourist town, impossible in summer and half of it closed in the winter (try to get a nice meal out in January - March, grrrr). Not content with the ordinary hordes of tourists, one or another organization is always trying to add another 'festival' to the calendar (recent additions = running festival, daffodil festival, wine festival). This year we got 1st Annual Chocolate Festival, today, the first Saturday in March. Cloudy and raw, as to be expected in early March; not pleasant for the outdoor chocolate crawl venue staff, nor the patrons. At least it wasn't blowing a gale. So I figured I might actually have a chance at scoring some delicious choccy treats without having to battle clots of people spilling out into the main street (only street) through town. And I did! Raspberry chocolate mousse, peanut butter and chocolate bread pudding, chocolate cheesecake lollipop, chocolate raspberry truffles, chocolate and cinnamon truffles, white chocolate lollipop, chocolate almond bark, and I quit there before I passed out from a sugar crash. Ten bucks. Deal! And, to pass the time between buying tix and the venues opening, I did a little shopping since most shops run deep discount sales in late winter. Scored a designer t-shirt for 60% off, some crab salsa, and a cow creamer for Mate, to console him after wrestling with Inland Revenue (Internal Revenue Service - Trump's tax 'cut' resulted in our OWING more than twice what we received as a refund last year :shock: :roll: ). AND the only waterfront restaurant in town that's open now was handing out 10% off coupons, so I may go in for a nice brunch tomorrow. :thumbl:

Oooh, a chocolate festival is awesome even if you are battling festival fatigue.

My day/week/month have all been hot. It's been 37C today and I've spent most of it indoors- well except for a trip to a nearby town (30 min away) for a market, only to find it wasn't on. Boo.

Was at the opera the evening and saw The Flying Dutchman. It was very good. Can't stop humming the sailors choir.

inna kayak uppa creek sounds like an address that would make the sorting office grind to a halt while they worked out who to send it to :lol:
