Baby Ronan arrived on Monday in the early hours safe and sound and mum is doing great too. Our dog Fergie and I were previously outnumbered with all the girls but thankfully now Ronan has evened the teams up! If we ever get a family game of football boys v girls I’d say the boys have it; provided of course Fergie doesn’t get too distracted in defence by running off and barking at the aeroplanes.
We got out of hospital the same day and I’ve got to say I was so impressed and grateful to the hospital staff and the NHS in general. The service is absolutely unreal and when I read about access to health care in other countries I realise how lucky we are here with our NHS.
I’m proud that our practice has it’s small role to play in that as although we offer all the private/cosmetic treatments too, we are first and foremost a family orientated NHS dental practice and will always be so.
I’m very grateful to our friends and family too as this week they have been providing us with so much free food and treats, we haven’t had to cook a thing yet. It’s actually got me thinking maybe we should have another one…😆
Apart from popping into work to finish a couple of things off i’ll be on paternity leave for the next 2 weeks which pretty much takes us to April. That will be a busy month as we move to our new premises in mid April.
Logistically it will be tricky as we need to go down to 1 surgery for a couple of days so please bear with us – we promise to keep the inconvenience to a minimum and trust me it’s all worth it as the new place is looking great!
So there’s a lot happening at once just now, but i’m sure baby Ronan would agree life is a rollercoaster and you just gotta ride it.
Have a good week everyone,
