Genteel spoonfuls


0810 raspberry jelly
Originally uploaded by rooruu
Genteel spoonfuls are the order of the day, and probably the tomorrow. And maybe the next day. So I made raspberry jelly with mandarin oranges in it (using tinned ones, because fresh can stop the jelly setting).

My aching jaw was grateful.

The tooth is still winning, however (dammit) so the saga will continue, and the plans for the next few days will have to be revised.

And prancing around in my mind are the charming teeth poems of Spike Milligan and Pam Ayres.

Pam: http://www.monologues.co.uk/First_Ladies/My_Teeth.htm

Neither of which applies in the current situation. But never mind.

Good god why is your tooth so difficult to remove? I hate the thought of anything to my mouth and believe me you have sympathetic phantom coming from my direction. Hope it is all over soon.

I have a new quilt up which I pieced in one day. This is a new experience for me.

Take care.

Candy, the damn tooth loves me. Or something. In a fortnight, it will not win. I've been told.

Saw your quilt - it's lovely!! Fast work like that is good.
