i had to pay a final visit to the dentist today to make sure all of his recent work was ok, luckily it seems that i should be ok for the next few years now, although i have to get to grips with flossing which something i have never done until now.

i had to buy a new suitcase as my old one got broken the last time i used it, it's typical that it was just out of the 3 year guarantee that samsonite give.

picked up my first christmas present from a friend as well. an extremely good bottle of 1979 chateau margaux which i think we will be having for christmas lunch.
