Guess what? Yes I'm ill again (screams loudly!!!) Got another bad cold earlier in the week and still suffering. Was feeling a bit better yesterday but then in the evening I felt completely washed out again.

Also started getting a toothache yesterday. Thought it was just slightly inflamed sore gums but woke up at 1am and it was throbbing. Had to get up and take painkillers. Luckily I managed to get back to sleep. Just waiting for the dentish to open now so Ican ring up for an emergency appointment. Think it's an abcess again. I had a severe one in the same area in January - while we were in Norway. And the whole right side of my face ended swelling up. I ended up having a root canal that time. This time it feels like it may be the tooth next to it which is affected. I just hope it's nothing serious. I seem prone to abcesses and I don't understand why. I clean my teeth properly and use the little 'Te-pe' brushes to clean between my teeth.

We've got Em's sleepover party tonight so I need to be well. When Vanessa had her sleepover party 2 weeks ago I ended up in bed Ifelt so ill and Simon had to supervise the girls so I don't think he'll be too impressed if the same thing happens tonight.

I've still got the cake to decorate too. And I need to pop into town to get some more icing to decorate it and some jam to go in the middle. Also got stuff for party bags to get. So all in all, I'm not very organized. I really don't have time this morning to go to the dentist.

Good news - I've finished the first sock for Sockamania May. Finished the sock last night and just got to type up the pattern now. I'm only knitting one sock for photography and pattern writing and then I'll join the rest of the club and knit the 2nd sock during May. I've decided to do a toe up version of the sock too. I did the toe last night. I'm a bit worried about getting the toe up version done by May 1st as it needs a different pattern writing up too. And if I'm releasing the toe up pattern I'd like to do a toe up tutorial to go with it too. I've got pics done for a tutorial.Just got to write it up. So it all depends on how much I get done this weekend.

Better go and ring that dentist.

Sorry to hear about the toothache & hope you feel better soon.

Anni, I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I can totally sympathise with you as I've been waiting to have a wisdom tooth out for the past 6 months! I should've taken out shares in Co-codamol, the amount I've been popping lately! *LOL* Anyway, hope you're feeling better soon. *sends hugs*

I'm looking forward to the first Sockamania pattern. It'll give me a chance to use some of my sock yarn stash. ;0) *blushes* I'm making sure my needles are clear in time for May 1st!

Hope you can get the toothache fixed soon. It's no fun to have one of those...even when you don't have a lot going on!
