Taking my mind off.....


Have just been to have troublesome upper tooth 'investigated'. This is dentist-speak for scraped out, prodded, tutted over and re-filled.

"It's much better," I said brightly when I arrived.
He looked at me. "But you told me last week that whenever you drank anything cold you felt as if your ears were being torn off."
"Well yes," I said. "But I've been limiting myself to tea. And red wine at room temperature."
He sighed. "Just sit in the chair."


Consequently am now numb from right cheekbone to right eye and having difficulty drinking my tea without dribbling.


So, I'm cheering myself up playing with the publicity-postcards that arrived today. Aren't they gorgeous? Can't decide whether I like the fan design on silver lamé or the casual block design on blue velvet.

It's going to be a real wrench to send them off to all the libraries in the Yellow Pages in the hopes of making a few sales.

But, hey, I can always order more!

They look beautiful on the blue and are very lovely cards. I loved Stage by Stage and so can't wait to read Fair Deception.

Hugs, Jan, on the dreaded d-word.

Lovely postcards. :o)

Jan Jones said...

I'll send you one, Lori. Just so long as you take it into your local library and ask them to order it! :)

Glad you enjoyed Stage by Stage

Jan Jones said...

Thanks, Kate. It's now gone down to a someone's-been-tampering-with-me ache and a disinclination to open my mouth very wide. Nothing to the hell you go through with yours.

I noticed you have become over come with black box fever????

Jan Jones said...

Welcome, Willow. Think I found your blog via the black box too. The one with the poetry and the lovely photos, right?

Hi Liz - yes, I've been black-boxed and it's all your fault! When are you in London next? I'll save you a bookmark (which I have also been having fun designing). Hint - the RNA Winter Party is Nov 19th.

Very cool - I am here by the Black Box ;)

Jan Jones said...

Hi Helenmh - Thanks, have to say I love my postcards too!

Hi Dlyn - that black box is certainly opening up the world.

Of course I will!

Lovely, Jan. The black box led me somewhere rather odd (!) so I stopped.

Jan Jones said...

Hi Susie - yes, it does that sometimes...
