Old Gipsy Woman, 'Granny Smith'
Dame Laura Knight
[British Impressionist Painter, 1877-1970]
Well for all my optimistic hope that there would be sunshine yesterday it did not happen, instead it started raining heavily as soon as I had posted and carried on all afternoon.
There was not even a glimmer of sun in the late afternoon as there so often does happen after a whole day of rain.
Today is a much better day, it is warm and sunny and the sky is a pale blue with wispy clouds drifting around like fragments of silk scarfs.
Ton will be here at 1.30 to check that all ls still well with my bottom, and to see how the healed skin looks like.
Then it’s off to the bathroom for a quick shower so that I am all ready for our dentist who is coming around at 14.00 to clean my teeth.
Something that I have not been looking forward to, this is I am sure because I have had a month to mull it over.
And to imagine all sorts of horrors, right now a few hours before he is due I can’t remember any of the nightmare scenarios I had imagined in the last month.
Which is good, it is often like that with me I have all the angst and worry beforehand and when the day comes I am calm and alright about it.
It is brilliant that our dentist is prepared to come here to clean my teeth and I am sure my mouth will feel much better once it is done.
All in all pretty fortunate to have such a good people who will visit me at home really do make life so much easier.
Looking forward to catching some rays after our friendly dentist Systse, a name from Friesland, has been, I have been going to him since 1984, and he is an excellent dentist and a fine man.
My only problem is I am scared of going to the dentist and today he is coming here oh well sure it will be ok and once it is done I intend to get some rays outside.
