Many years ago our last dog dug up a tiny sapling that we brought home and planted in a pot, eventually we found a permanent piece of ground to plant it in, it is now approx eight feet tall. The other week we spotted a sapling when up the woods with Lilly, and so I decided Lilly had to have her own tree as well. Hopefully it will grow and thrive.
I was taking some photographs for a review blog post ( post to follow) and was using the living room floor as no matter what I do in my long narrow kitchen with a three spot light there is always a shadow.
Lilly decided to come across for a nose and decided without being asked to sit nice. She never sits nice when I have her amongst piles of autumn coloured leaves or on a log.
Bobs turn to be ill this week, so I went and watched the three wee ones while DD1 took him to the doctor. A course of steroids to try and save it getting too bad and lots of doses of his blue inhaler. The twins were playing with playdoh.
DD3's birthday today. We met up with her at Sunshine on Leith at Centrestage in Kilmarnock. DD3 had bought the tickets for us as both hubby and I have birthdays this month as well. We then took her to McD's for something to eat.Easiest place to get to at gone ten on a cold horrible night.
Thoroughly enjoyed the show and the cast seemed to enjoy themselves as well.
Fifi and Bob wanted to come over and help make items with the hama beads. I printed off some easy Christmas baubles for Bob but he decided he wanted to try something far to difficult for him. He then tried to copy Fifi and that did not work for him either. So spent half the evening in tears because he could not do it but would not relent and try something easier. He then wrecked the second one that Fifi was working on to try and cause an argument, so we put the beads away.
Second birthday of the week. Today Fifi turned fourteen. Life is getting easier as she just asked for a cake, no specifics other than that. Made her a rectangle with butter icing and surrounded by matchmakers.
I have been toying over the idea of a sonic toothbrush for a while now. My electric one is not holding a charge. So when I was at the dentist last week I asked what they thought about them, They approved of them and coincidentally they had one for sale in the surgery. A quick google and as the price of the brush was the same locally as it was in the surgery, Did look on the Every Day is black Friday site as well,* but decided just to buy there and then. It is a Colgate Omron and at the time was retailing in most places for supposedly half price at £29.99.
Have to say I am very impressed. The buzzing takes a bit of getting use to, even after using an electric one, but the cleaning results are great and much gentler on my receding gums than my electric brush. I have to say I never seem to need treatment and only end up at the hygienist once every three or four visits, but my teeth do feel cleaner the next morning than they did. An easy drop in charger with a charging light so you know when it is fully charges and a warning light on the front for when it is getting low.
Has a 30 second warning so you know when to move quadrants which is handy, and switches off at the end of the two minutes, I would prefer a ten second warning, but getting use to working in the four quadrants rather than wily nilly so may well be a good thing.
