I'm In a state of panic!

Kim called herself a waffler, I just crowned her :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::butterfly:
And surprisingly Jen, I have been called far worse than a waffler, and I am quite happy to be crowned queen waffler by Carole. When I was little when I got up in the mornings, my mum would still be half asleep, as she always said she needed 'time to adjust' ;) and there would be me chatter, chatter, waffle, waffle, so mum always told me that I was born with a gramophone needle going round and around:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Also, years ago when I worked for a well known building society, I had an appraisal, and my boss told me that he felt he should mention that I did talk a bit too much, but that he couldn't reprimand me for it, because the customers loved it, so a double edged sword really, as I do get on my own nerves at times, and the little voice in my head has to tell me to shut up, because, believe me, if I get on my own nerves, then you can just imagine what I am doing to others :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Step away from the people that say you get on their nerves :devilish: now when you get on your own nerves, go to bed and leave yourself :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: give yourself a break.

Are you enjoying your time off :jump::jump::jump::butterfly:
Nah, Kim, you could NEVER get on my nerves! I love reading your journal and finding out about the latest goings-on in your life (and teeth, :giggle:).
We all got to vent someplace........................I know I vent here and sometimes it's not about dental stuff!!
Many :hug5:'s my:friends:!
Well, here I am sitting on me lonesome and singing out really loud what I think was the Z-cars tune - and why would that be - oooohhhhhh because I am stupid enough to have put on Embarrassing Bodies, and am now in such a state, that I can't track the remote with my eye's shut to turn it over!!! I know, Carole, you would be having a hissy fit at me. I am listening to a Nurse Tickle :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: who is a tissue viability nurse - oh yuk, and there is a bloke who has had extensive dental work done - watched that through a 'Jack the Ripper' fog, plus my finger's in front of my eye's.

The dentist who has treated him has loads of awards, and is very clever, and all of that, but I just don't get the empathy side of him. I have checked his website out, and it is pretty cool, but not for the poor pocketed lol.

Anyway, my reason for coming on here and 'updating' so to speak. I had a freaky out moment today - made me think I was going through the change because I became all hot and bothered, and knew that my response didn't wash, tho' I do think the person I spoke to still couldn't quite figure out what had happened........

So, what it is. For over the last two years, I have had problems with what I now know to be cold sores on one particular part of my mouth. I have been to the doc's about them, and she has basically told me that it is just one of those things :(

So I have this amazing 'ointment' that I brought back (in bulk) from Oz called Paw Paw. It is the only thing that I have tried that literally draws out gook quickly. Only problem is, they still keep coming back, are sore, and because they are 'red', they 'highlight' peoples attention to my newly formed 'bouche'.

And so, this little lady who I haven't seen for a bit comes into my office today, we start a conversation, and after a bit, she is looking at my mouth. She then asks if I have a 'problem' with my mouth? I instantly jump back at her and say 'NO' and then rush on to say that I have been to my GP and there is nothing they can do (honestly, I am typing at 200mph, the speed I was responding to her with). My face was absolutely 'bursant'. Anyway, think I have blagged it for now. Just goes to show, there are some people who I don't really worry about knowing, and some that I do - so where does that come from??

My daughter is still working at rubbish employers Amazon - but at least the car thing is working out better and I don't have to go out and do the late night pick up thing, just have to go around every now and again, and do the 'car swap'.

My son, as of today, has taken a 'career change' He has got a part time job in his seventh heaven, a Pizza shop. He has done that for a week, and his 'boss' has great aspirations for him, so he has 'jacked in his job' at Amazon, and is now learning the 'art' of putting a pizza together..... watch this space :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Will properly update over the next few days, but just to get Carole on the go, I was taking the shopping out of the car after I had put it in the very old garage which our neighbour fixed the other week or so because the 'garage shop' said it couldn't be - after the £80 call out charge to tell us that - and then I thougt a volcano eruption was in the starting of and everything went all dark - bloody garage door - well oiled garage door fell down on me, locking me in - total darkness, good job I have a phone that had a bit of battery life, rang my hubby, who did a bit of a silent englebert dump the thing and came and let me out - my life never ever gets easier xx
Off to Dublin tomorrow.... got shut in the garage last week....... got a wonderful new table and chairs today........ going to be a long day tomorrow but sooooo looking forward to it - will update as and when I get back - stressing already, as hate the going through the motions bit at the airport, so watch this space I can see a bit of :whirl::whirl::whirl::whirl::whirl::whirl::whirl:

Oh yes Carole, it is slightly unnerving when you hear what you think is a plane about to crash on your head, when in fact it is the actual closing of the garage door on you, and you are left in pitch black :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Wow, I am new to this site but I am sorry you experienced that. I personally hate being stuck especially when its dark! Thank God above your phone was with you, lol. MY phone is always dead, whenever something comes up I got to charge it first. Your story gives me more incentive to charge it more, lol.

And enjoy your trip to Dublin, WOW that is a place Ive ALWAYS wanted to visit, its far away cause I live in the US. My mother is full blooded Irish, her and I will visit Dublin together in the future.

I hope you have a wonderful trip.
Well I just cannot wait to read how this trip went, all I can say is, I hope you gain some 'luck of the Irish', :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Have a brilliant trip, Kim - it's one of my favourite cities :)!
I am a bit worried now 'cos I was the one in control in Dublin - at the airport and on the hop on hop off bus - Maybe I am 'growing up' at long last...... nup - not going to happen - So I sat on the hop on hop off's and kept breaking out into song (not loudly 'cos I am rubbish - as an Aquarian I should be artistic in so many ways, but am sooooo not - but Ali laughed out loud at me knowing the words - brilliant time next time will go back and stay over - I am getting too old to be getting up at 4am and to be getting back hone really late with a buzz and not going back to bed until 1am -

The tour bus guy said that in Ireland if you have one yellow line - YOU DONT STOP ON IT - to be sure - if you have two, YOU DON'T STOP ON THEM - to be sure to be sure

The ability to make fun out of yourself and others around you without harming anyone's feelings or upsetting anyone - PRICELESS - bring it back please :)

Loved Dublin to pieces, just froze to death and have been totally creamy crackered since we got back -

Gia 79 - You will get to see what a disaster area I am - don't like being stuck anywhere, least of all a dentist chair - so the garage for me, pretty cool :devilish::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::scared::devilish::scared: xx
Hi Kim! I heard, from Carole, that you didn't get immediates put in. I am in the same situation, and was wondering if you could help me by answering some questions:

1. I had my procedure 1 week ago. How long did it take for you to be able to chew with your gums?

2. Is it true you have to smush things mostly with your tongue and upper palate?

3. Will I ever feel like a normal person again? lol That's not really a question...
Just as a comparison:- I had an upper immediate put in 5 days ago my gums are tender against my dentures , I am smashing everything up but with a fork and don't feel normal so it doesn't make much difference with or without :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::toofunny:
'ello - yes I am still around and haven't disappeared totally - sorry, am still like a bad penny and keep turning up ;) Now I have been having a quick lookie round and Deejay, I am sooooo sorry I haven't answered you and also big apols to DiHappy0828 - what a let down you must think I am.

As per, there has been sooooo much going on in 'Kim's world' - some good, some bad, more rubbish than anything else. There have been lots of family shenanigans with my family who are half way around the world, and worries with my own brood this lie of the land - job is even more rubbish, but best bit is I am more or less in control with the gook stuff used to glue my gob in ;) I still have my really crappy moments when I am wretching like a good 'un (am going to check out all these new smilies in a bit too as am feeling as if I have missed loads).

I can't believe it has been 8 months since I have had my new smile, and been back at work - work is always more hectic than any of us would like - I often think of Sparkles, who also works for the NHS - and I still am in touch with Carol 999 tho' she has been having a bit of a rubbish time also.

I have a tale to tell with my next 'trip' which is to see Runrig's 40th anniversary concert in Inverness (they are a really good Scottish band who both me any my hubby both like so have that in common lol), so will get back with that one.........

And then Carole, what is all this about you being driven all around London - I'm a Londoner born and bred, so maybe you should have checked with me in the first instance about London - :hmm:

Anyways, gonna go do myself a sweet chilli chicken wrap for dinner, will be ducking and diving (some things never change, I know) so don't think I am not here, I am always hiding somewhere :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Well boo :giggle::giggle::giggle: we found you so stop hiding and come back and play :toofunny::toofunny::toofunny::butterfly:
Great to see you back :yayy:!!!!!!! Been missing you and your updates, and your brilliant advice on the forum of course :thumbsup:. You can stop hiding now ;D
:poppingin: Hello Kim!!

Just thought i'd say hello too. Have sent you a PM.

Just when you thought things would be getting better........ they haven't :(

My gob is good, me bottom teeth could probably do with a bit of a revamp, tops are cool, but I have got the hang of the glue amount - I still gag when I am 'clearing out' but that is just me ( can't understand how I ever managed to clean a babies bum, but I did, so there you go - Have had seriously rubbish news about my sister in law
Hey Kim,

Just thought i'd send you some hugs as things don't sound so good just now. I hope things get better.

:hug5: :grouphug: :hug5::grouphug:
Same here, Kim......................sending :grouphug:'s!!!
I can't wait for 2013 to be over, what an awful year!!!!!!
