Christmas and new year was wonderful. Far better than I had expected. I didn't decorate the house other than to buy a couple of festive poinsettias to pop amongst my lush plant collection. Christmas cards were placed around many surfaces along with mementos, ornaments, pots and clocks of which I have many. It looked cosy enough. And with clever lighting quite festive. The clever lighting also hid the dust. We were far more social than I had anticipated. MyMan was like Rip Van Winkle coming to life after a L O N G S L E E P.
He remained positive into the new year.
He was doing well until this week. Until his first of three appointments at the dentist to have 2 of 5 teeth removed. The dentist has told him the diseased teeth could well be having an impact on his physical health. We hope that when they are all out he will feel better for it. But, as it is, he has swollen face, face pain and his neck has been buggered up by the dentists efforts to extract the teeth. He'll go to have deep tissue massage next week to prepare his neck for the onslaught of having the remaining teeth out. It's hard for him to remain positive 'at the moment' but I hope that by February/March we'll be back on track for a brighter more positive year.
