So yesterday was my birthday and i’m now the ripe old age of 32. I celebrated the 30th and before that a good effort was put in for the 21st but I think my next big one is 40. In between 30 and 40 they’re all the same really. I’d say caterpillar cakes are in order for the next 7 then it’s a trip to Vegas for the big one hopefully. Speaking of caterpillar cakes here’s my two girls helping me blow out my candles yesterday:
Before this Raashi and I went out for a 10 course lunch at 111 by Nico. Being a professional bargain hunter Raashi managed to find a 50% off black Friday deal for it. 👏🏼 It sounds like a lot of courses but some of the plates were flavoured foam. The menu is called ‘trust’ as you don’t actually order anything, just trust that the chefs will provide good food. That they did. Except for the mushrooms. No to them. I’d rather have settled for the 9 courses or another plate of foam instead.
The menu had a great slogan on it that im going to borrow for our own line of work :
“Trusting us is your decision, proving you right is our job”
You might see that in our waiting room soon enough so thanks Nico.
The rest of my day yesterday was spent having a drawing competition, Mila and I versus Raashi:
I’ve had some lovely gifts and messages from family, friends and patients so thank you all very much for that. Went out for some drinks with friends last night and an obligatory McDonalds on the way home. We’re at our nephew Harris’s christening today then ill be back home to watch my beloved Manchester United likely get beat 5-0 by Liverpool. 🤢Praying for a birthday weekend miracle on that front.
To help prevent any further gagging we’re planning on investing in a new scanner for work. These are tiny cameras that take digital moulds of teeth rather than the traditional impressions which most people don’t like, myself included. I’ve been looking at a few different ones and tomorrow we are getting a trial unit for a few weeks to see what its like so i’m looking forward to that. Now’s the time to book in if you’ve been delaying treatment due the dreaded impressions!
Have a good week everyone,
