If we were having coffee: Teeth, family, and everyday

It is If we were having  Coffee  time  again how  are  you all  and  what  have  you been up  to this  week! I have  been  busy  all  month  doing  Love is in  Da Blog   over  at Just Fooling Around  With Bee and  even though I have  found it  very hard at  times  and I have had  to leave  my  comfort  zone I have managed  to make it to the end of  the  month!

So  come in it is lovely  to see you all here again. The fires are lit  the cushions are plumped up and  we have  the coffee and tea on  the go  and the cakes and sweets are all set out.  We  have  tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

If we were having  Coffee: I would ask  you what  has been going on in your world this week, has  anything  deeply affected  you, have  you need a sympathetic ear, a shoulder to cry  on or  just  needed someone  to make  you laugh! If  yes  feel free to talk it out  here  with us. We will all help if  we can.

If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster  

If  we were having  coffee:  It has  been  another  busy  week  we are still decorating  among  other  things  but  the  room is  looking  good and  we are  both pleased  with it.

I have  had  the usual  round of  gym  and classes   plus  shopping  and housework… I  am very  boring  this  week.  If  we were having  coffee: I would  tell  you  how  I had  to  visit  the  dentist  this  week, I have  been having  problems   with  my  second but   end  teeth  top left  and top  right. When I  broke  my  back  five  years  back  I  damaged  them the  force of  my  head  hitting  the floor put  an  identical  crack  right  through the both of  them! Well during  the course of  last  year both teeth  have  developed abscesses and I have lost  them both. Anyway  long  story  short  I  was  going to have implants , well I  knew  they  would  be  expensive  but I  did not realize that  not only  would  they  cost  nearly  £9000 but  it  would  require bone  removed  from  my  hips  to facilitate  the  implants  as  my  gums  are  so  small  and  they have  healed up  very  short.

Well I  am not  a rich  woman  and  though  I  would of liked  implants the  thought of an operation  on my  hips  and  my  jaw was just too daunting. Also  think of  all the  more sensible  things I  could  do  with £9000 pounds! So on Monday  I went to see  the dentist  and  we discussed  my options. Well I am going  for  soft  nylon  plastic  dentures  which will cost £350 pounds…. expensive  still,  but  a much  more  reasonable  price.  All this  for  two  lost  teeth, sadly  I cannot  eat  properly  without   them so  needs  must  when  the devil  drives. I don’t  want  you  to all start calling  me  gummy  behind  my  back!

If  we were having  coffee: I would ask  you  if  you would  like some more  coffee and some cakes.Plenty  to choose  from and all calorie free.

If  we were having  coffee:I would  also  tell  that  my  eldest  sister  is improving  after  having  her  stent  fitted, it  has taken her  a while  to get  herself  back  to normal   but I am happy  to  say  she  really  is on the  mend  now.  My next  sister  who  had  the  shoulder  operation  is also  finally  on  the  mend. She  actually  drove her car  for the first  time  in three  months a huge  thing  for her  as  she hates  to be  at  the mercy  of  asking  others  to take  her out and about.

While  we are  going  through  the litany  of  my siblings  ills  my  brother  ( twin to the sister  recovering   from  the shoulder  operation) is  out of hospital  and home  after  his  foot  operation, he is also on the mend …slowly   but definitely improving. My other  sister  is  still awaiting  her heart  operation  unfortunately  she is not feeling  at  all well  and is  peeved  by  the fact  that  she is having  to wait  so long  for  her operation.

Well that  just leaves  my  last  remaining brother  as as I have  heard  nothing  to the  contrary  I  am assuming he  is  fit  and  well.

If  we were having  coffee: The  boys  are  all busy  at  work  and play  and  the beautiful  Newbie  is  only  10 weeks off  a year old!!I would  apologize  for  not  being  very  dynamic  this  week  but it  has been a long  long  month ! I shall  close  now  and  send  you all my  love  and look forward  to seeing  you all next  week! Lets  go  and mingle  with Paul  and his  guests. Paul  has  always  written us  a beautifully  kind  and insightful  post.

    Great post Willow. Sounds like people are healing and doing reasonably well in your world. Hard to believe that Newbie is growing up so fast. That cost for new teeth is unreal – Wow! i hope all goes well with your second choice.

    Have a great week Willow!

    The weather has been so depressing, healing is slow, methinks. Sorry about all the pain and suffering in your family. Oh, your poor teeth. ❤ ❤ ❤

    Yes, you need teeth to eat, Willow. I would choose the less expensive path, as did you. Wow. The hip bone is too darn costly, my friend. Have a good week!

    I have to admit I quite often got myself out of my comfort zone as well. I appreciate your participation a lot and have enjoyed your post immensely. Thank you very much :-)!

    I’m glad your dentist was able to come up with somewhat of a solution that was more affordable. I know how awful it is to be missing teeth. My back teeth are missing, both back molars on both sides, top and bottom. And one of my side teeth so that makes it really difficult to eat properly. I end up having to chew with my biting teeth as I don’t have any chewing teeth. Even eating a salad takes forever because of having to chew with the wrong teeth! I’m glad you will be spared that difficulty.
