Just finished...

Watching the BBC series of Versailles and despite what some critcs have said about it, we have both really enjoyed it. It was announced at the end that a second series had been commissioned, I really hope so.

We went to the seaside over the weekend for our monthly fish & chips and ice cream. Unfortunately, towards the end of eating my chocolate chip ice cream, I felt something hard in my mouth. It was a chunk of my tooth that has been playing up for nearly 18 months:(

Waiting to visit the dentist today, so I can find out whether it can be saved or will need to be removed:( Either way, at the moment, the date for fixing it is 20th September, say what! I am hoping he will concur with me that is too long to wait, but they are pretty well fully booked:(

Watched the conclusion of the diving and cycling last night, very good. Went to bed around 11:30pm but couldn't sleep, full moon always keeps me awake for some reason even though the bedroom is pretty well blacked out.

Four late nights on the trot and the previous three, slept like a log so that was good at least. Nearly got calf cramp in my left leg around 2:00am then got full blown calf cramp in my right leg around 5:00 am. Must have been in a deep sleep then as I couldn't get out of bed in time to stop it, still limping this morning. I hate calf cramp, so blooming painful.

  2. We absolutely loved watched it, we went to Versailles a few years ago, it was amazing, I bought back a lovely book, I am going to read through it properly again now .

  3. I suffer from cramp too but in my toes. I look like I have alien feet with my toes facing in all directions. I agree its horrid. I'm going to watch the boxed set of Versailles as hubby wouldn't like it.

    1. It is quite raunchy in places and appears slow but very interesting.

  4. I didn't watch Versailles - I shall catch up with it later. Sympathies re the tooth - I have had 2 go in the last 18months- one when eating granola. The worst bit is paying the dental charges [and I am an NHS patient - but it is still bad enough to get unexpected bills like that]

    1. We are private so it will be expensive but he reckons he can fill it.

  5. I read on a blog last week that the best cure for night cramps is to drink a glass of water before going to bed. I don't know if it works but maybe worth a try. It has something to do with the way your kidneys work when you are led down.
