no weight loss

I have to admit I did not lose any weight this last week.
Today I went to the dentist for a check up and for him to look at a tooth we have trying to save for ages but bits keep dropping off.Anyway he decided it needed to come out.It is right at the back and you can't see it.I am a real coward at the dentist but he is brilliant.He gave me 2 injections and although it had a twisted root he managed to get it out.He told me that I have very dense jaw bones.(Could this be why I weigh so much-dense bones!!)I am feeling ok but my bank balance is £130 lighter and it was all over and done with in a quarter of an hour.
I have decided to knit the Dane shawl with my Posh Yarn August sock club yarn.It is looking good but the yarn seems so thick after doing lace knitting.Has anyone got the book Knitted Estonian Lace and would you recommend it?
Between us and next door we have a cupressus hedge.For ages the lady there has been nagging us to get it taken down by 2 feet.In the end we arranged it but the bloke said he couldn't come for a while.In the meantime lady next door sold her house but we forgot to cancel the gardener thinking he would ring before he came .Anyway we were out on saturday morning and when we came back we could hear a chain saw and he had done half the job.He had climbed over our locked gate and just got on with it.There was no going back and the job cost £200.Also our main car is in for bodywork repairs..Someone ran into us in a car park in Stratford and just drove off.That is costing £150.Not a good week!!!


  1. Ooh! That's a lot of money you've had to pay out all at the same time - hope it hasn't curtailed your yarn buying ;-) Hope the tooth is not too sore.

  2. Expensive time for you. Have you noticed that expenses are like buses, they come in twos or threes. Sympathise with you on the dentist costs - my last checkup and filling cost me £80 for roughly five minutes work. These dentists are raking it in aren't they?
