John woke in the night with toothache and has been to the dentist today.  There is decay under one of his crowns and it seems it will be a vast expense to correct it. Talk of bridges, posts, crowns…….why on earth he does not just have the tooth out I do not know. It is a back one and so it is not as if it would show!  He has an appointment for Friday when the crown will be removed and the best course of action decided.

Rowan Kidsilk Creation Stripe is discontinued.  I am not surprised as fancy yarns definitely have a limited life due to their lack of versatility.
