Celebrities, Chocolate & fillings at the dentist

As we only had heat - pathetic though it was - in one room of the house, I relented and watched "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" with my daughter (a voracious viewer of reality tv programmes) for the first time last night. I thought it would be interesting to see what all the fuss was about - I was wrong! I appear to be in the distinct minority amongst my colleagues at work when it comes to not watching these programmes. Well, all I can say is, a) Good for Lynne Franks (I think that was her name) for putting her hand, nay, entire body through all that goop, scorpions and various other unmentionables and, b) why on earth don't these celebrities (though why they are termed as such when I have no idea who half of them are) seek out the best hypnotherapist they can find and rid themselves of all their phobias before descending into the jungle?

Poor dd had to go to the dentist after school today for her first filling. It was such a titchy one that it was barely visible, anyhow I digress. We waited for a bit and then I went to the lavatory (boredom/cold what more can I say?) and when I came out she had been shown through to the consulting room. I followed and arrived in the room to hear the dentist say, "I shall just leave you for a moment to let that injection work." Shame, poor thing, dd not the dentist, it never occurred to me that she would need an injection. Thankfully, she is made of stern stuff and isn't bothered by dentists and was perfectly happily sitting there.

The only bad effect of her trip is that her face is slightly out of line as her mouth is numb and she is unable to eat her bar of Fairtrade crunchy chocolate. To be honest, I think the reason she keeps glaring at me is that I have so far eaten half. I promise to stop now and let her have the rest later, when she has got all feeling back in her face.

Did you stop at half???? Think you should buy poor dd her very own bar as compensation - and she was so brave:-)

Lane - you're quite right, I shall buy her another one although will probably have some of that too. It's lovely chocolate.

Oooh no, eat it all and buy dd another! That's what I'd do anyway.

I'm A Celebrity. I'm hooked. I'm sad. What can you say. But you are quite right, why are they classed as celebritities - yes, I meant to type that - they are just a bunch of has-beens.

Dentists! Up there with spiders on my phobia list.

And can I just say before I bore you even more, I love Philip Glenister. I think he's really attractive and a very good actor. He can be my main character in the film which will be made from my book. If he's still acting then of course.

Crystal - I totally agree with you, Philip Glenister is one gorgeous fellow. I can't wait to see Ashes to Ashes. I would like Richard Armitage to be cast in the film of my book (I believe in the power of positive thought!)
