Yesterday we recieved a letter informing us of the total and final cost of our wedding. We shall be paying this on Tuesday and I am terribly excited. Next we shall be recieving the forms in which we choose our vows and pick some music.
Today my gown arrived! It’s everything that I hoped it would be, and I’m just waiting to hear from Dom’s sister about going to her house to try it on.
All I really need to do now is sort out invitations and choose and order flowers. I also need to rethink transport, as this morning I discovered that my bridesmaid’s husband can’t drive! Oops?
In other news, a visit to my dentist on Monday produced my new teeth. They are far nicer than my original teeth and also better than the first denture I had, which refused to stay in no matter what I did!
I honestly have no words to describe just how wonderful it is to not have to feel ashamed of my teeth any more. No more pain, no more receding gums – and my dentist is doing her best to save the remaining teeth I have in spite of my genetic disorder. It’s true that my jaw may still crumble further, but with any luck we can even slow that down.
I am very, very happy with my new teeth; now I just have to adjust slowly and try them as and when. Eventually I’ll be able to brush, rinse and pop them in of a morning without thinking about it!
What were the other things? Oh, yes! My niece decided to steal a jar of my confiturra from my sister – which means I’ve had to ask that she puts a request in if she wants any more so that I know how much to make!
Also, my first meal with my new teeth was cider-roasted gammon with mash, carrots and greens. It was lovely to be able to bite – I even managed to crunch the sprouts whole instead of having to cut them in half! By the time we return to Hope Orchard in June I’m sure I’ll be able to chow down on one of their amazing full English breakfasts again!
Perhaps the new teeth will help me to get rid of The Monster too, which is still haunting me a little bit. That would be lovely.
