An overdue catch up!

14th March 2019

Hi everyone!

I can only apologise for the length of time it’s been since I last wrote to you all!
It’s been a hectic couple of weeks my end, and there’s just been no time at all to scribble anything down. I suppose we’d better start off with ‘HAPPY MARCH’! We’ve made it out of the brutal Winter months, and we are FINALLY heading towards Spring – more daylight and (hopefully) more sunshine! It’s been a long old Winter, and I think we’ll all feel the benefits of at the very least being able to travel back and forth from work in the light! 🙂

So, what do we have to catch up on?
We’ve missed discussing pancakes and the ludicrous things people like to pile onto them (the worst I heard was cottage cheese…sorry Kasia!), and we’ve missed the build up to the ever-popular Newbury Pancake Race! The Briars had enough willing(ish) volunteers to enter not one, but TWO teams into this year’s race! We had an epic team of surgeons, alongside a tooth fairy, a toothbrush, a toothpaste, and of course, a big mouth! We didn’t manage to win best dressed this year sadly (did someone say fix!?) – but we looked absolutely fantastic, and we all ran our little socks off! I managed to down 10 pancakes over the course of the day – 3 for breakfast, 2 for lunch and 5 for dinner…all with a healthy dose of sugar and lemon. Do 10 hits of lemon juice count towards my 5-a-day?!

I’ve had a really sweet tooth recently, pancakes were just the start of it – muffins have been fairly high on my ‘to-eat list’, as have fruit pastilles, and strawberry laces…and doughnuts. I am an absolute dental nightmare at the moment – I’m just trying to keep the treats to mealtimes, even if the mood strikes me every hour on the hour. I don’t really have any desire to be the size of a house by the time baby makes an appearance, or have cavities in every tooth – so I’ll try and behave myself – still blaming the baby though, nothing to do with me…;-)

What else we’ve been up to for the past couple of weeks will have to remain a mystery for now…I promise I will tell you ALL about it when everything is signed and sealed – it’s also a very long story, as things normally are in the dental world (!)

I hope you all have a lovely rest of the week!

Love, Amy x

The new reception procedure was straightforward with no hassle and to all intents and purposes almost ‘normal’. Marcus

The staff were very friendly and helpful, explaining everything clearly. I felt like the treatment was completely tailored to me and they knew what would be suitable for my skin type more than I did. G. Chaloner
