    Went to the dentist today for specialist restorative endodentistry, first of many visits. Now feel like I have been in a fight and lost big time. Only good thing is that it is being done in a specialist NHS unit so I am not paying. Having just paid £180 in my own dentist for a new tooth I'm happier that it is not costing me anything.

    Came home cut the front lawn at Koi Castle and I think the mower has died in me now, finished it all but then the mower was just buzzing so maybe it was tired and will work next time.

    Then I cut the rear lawns at Koi Castle with the ride on mower after going to get a gallon of petrol for it. Two hours later all done.

    Gardening was a good way if distracting me from my jaw but now I am in for the night it is starting to ache a bit.

    Not taking any pain killers so plan to get drunk and snuggling up to my other half who is now full of the cold I gave her last week.

    Went to Hartlepool again this time to a wood yard that was selling 12 x 2 x 8ft boards, should of took the roof rack but it was raining, anyway bought 3 lengths from him 2 went down in to the foot well, the other which is bigger than 8ft went full length on to the dash with a cloth under it and on top of the parcel shelf again with cloth underneath resting on the headrest brackets, boot closed lovely.

    Came home took wood out of the car, had a look on Gumtree and shpock if anybody was selling a planer/thicknesser, stumbled across a brand new in the box planer from Lidl that was on offer about a month or so ago, it said brand new never used £15, contacted the seller and said you put down Ono I'll make and offer so my offer of £10 was accepted went and collected it straight away, would you believe it Dalton Piercy 8 mile down the road which I had to pass to get to Hartlepool not 2 hours earlier, 750w which isn't bad but the best thing is it will take 3mm off in one swoop, I have a ELU one that takes 3mm off in one go but its 110v and I can't be arsed dragging the transformer out every time I want to use it.

    I gave the built in Sat Nav an airing, I came off the A19 a little early for it's liking, there's about 3 round-a-bouts when you come of the motorway before you hit the dual carriage way to Hartlepool, everytime I came up to them the Sat Nav would get slightly louder with it's instructing and what seemed more aggressive, I was waiting for it to go well f..k you find your own way.

    Then called in Halfords for a tin of Filler Primer (500ml), I got that and a tin of grey plastic primer (300ml) with trade card for a little over £11.

    That's a nice, sensible ticket price too. With some events costing stupid amounts its nice to see rugby can still do some sensibly priced tickets.

    Had a lie in this morning until the time of posting this. Rare but much needed!

    Off out shortly to pick up a water pump, timing belt, drive belt, pulleys and fluids for the pug so i can get the cylinder head refitted.
    Picked up a cheap torque wrench yesterday from screwfix as i left mine outside by accident and it went walkies. Seems to be fairly decent for £24.99, good reviews but will see how it holds out.
    Also have to get a torque angle gauge whilst out aswell as the weekly shop.
