Groundhog day #56. Not great weather today so seems we’re stuck inside. At least it might give me a chance to finish my book off as I’m nearly there with it. One of my new years resolutions was to read at least 1 book per month and despite getting off to a flyer by doubling my target in Jan and Feb, I’ve been stuck on the same one now since March. You would imagine lockdown would have seen me get the annual target done and dusted but I’ve been mobbed with ‘other activities’. Im currently reading ‘Ghost wars’ which is a book about the history of the CIA, Afghanistan and Osama Bin Laden.
It’s really interesting and I often find myself going off in a tangent on google to clarify things that aren’t covered in the book. That further research led me all the way to tik tok this morning where I stumbled on this impression of Donald Trump:
Come to think of it I don’t know what’s had the most significant impact on my reading target: national lockdown and all it’s side effects, the birth of our 3rd child, or downloading tik tok. 🤦🏻♂️. To be fair my ‘other activities’ have also involved playing a lot of hopscotch, hide and seek, drawing and scooter races:
I got a message yesterday saying that ‘Irish Dentists’ are going back to work on Monday. Unfortunately Laura and I aren’t getting a free pass just yet as it’s actually dentists in Ireland. It is at least some good news though as hopefully this means that the UK won’t be too far behind. I wish I could give our patients a better idea as to when we will re-open but your guess is as good as mine as we haven’t been given any indication of a possible date of return to work yet. Fingers crossed we find out more this week coming . 🤞🏼
As a reminder please call us for advice and if required, rest assured we can arrange for you to be seen by a dentist at one of the emergency dental hubs that have been set up across the city.
Back to my favourite other activities for the rest of the day for me:
Have a good week everyone,
