Mstr L had his first dentist appointment yesterday at the fantastic ‘NHS Dentist‘ bang opposite us. I was probably more nervous than him as the mere smell of the place makes my heart beat faster, and not in a good way. That would be just weird.
I had prepped him by watching a few back to back ‘Peppa Pig’ episodes of when Peppa visits the dentist. I thought all was well until he bloomin’ well went and remembered the (nightmarish) dentist scene in ‘Finding Nemo’. He brought this up as we were sitting in the waiting room, so I just firmly (but kindly) said ‘No no. That’s NOT how it’s done. Remember PEPPA. She had FUN!’ He didn’t look convinced.
The dentist was brilliant though, and she completely relaxed him by letting him lie on me on the reclining chair. All was well teeth wise and we counted together 20 of them. The dental assistant very sweetly rewarded him with two stickers, making his day. Done and dusted for another six months.
I walked past Jonathan Adler yesterday and couldn’t resist popping in for a browse. This shop, along with The Conran Shop, always inspires me. The majority of items, particularly the ceramics, would make the most amazing wedding presents. See below for my favourites, all of which can be bought online here.
