Monday 9:20: impacted wisdom tooth removal. That set the tone for the rest of the week. And the tone was shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. The duality of being largely pain free (anaesthetic is amazing) alongside the relatively extreme forces being subjected to my face (and the sounds of snapping tooth and bone) was very strange. I knew I was going to pay for it. And I did. It felt (and continues to feel) like someone had kicked my head in before royally fucking up their knitting inside my gob. I had very little appetite for getting my temporary crown refitted two days later. Spent the rest of the week slamming painkillers and feeling sorry for myself.

Fitted a total-blackout blind to the skylight accompanied by much swearing – possibly on a par with tooth extraction stress levels. We can now theoretically sleep in darkness (just need baby girl to get the memo).

Cutting out the lunch time nap is fast becoming the norm for the little man. The upshot is an early-evening meltdown then peace for the rest of the evening. Feels very weird – not a world we’ve ever known before. We even found time to watch the Wham! documentary one evening (enjoyed it a lot).

Bae’s parents came for the weekend (giving bae some desperately-needed respite in the light of my even-more-useless-than-usual condition).


Think I’ve largely wired up the new components for Visual Stories in Prismic.
