(no subject)

James has gone back to work today. Only on short shifts at the moment, he'll be finished by 2, and due to an existing schedule he's actually on his rota'ed days off from tomorrow so won't be back in until Sun. But, it's a start back to normalcy.

Things have been busy but without anything that actually stands out.

We had a double cinema day and went to see Power Rangers and the new Fast and Furious, and I liked them both. We went to a smaller Odeon than our usual and ended up sitting in the same seats in the same screen for both. Though for the second the person behind decided to hang their coat on the back of my seat which was annoying.

I have tickets for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 for Saturday, and can't wait for that.

I went to the dentist about my missing cap, but sadly it's impossible to just scrape off the left over cement. So I'll be getting a new cap in the future, and also apparently two fillings need doing. Despite it being an NHS dentist I still need to pay the top band for the work, which is £350, which is a lot when my teeth don't actually hurt, but compared to what some have to pay, I know is a bargain. Especially as no matter what work is done they can't go above that figure, and despite the cost and faff, I know in the long run getting the new cap is the right thing to do. They also suggested some teeth bleaching, but as that would be an extra £200 on top, nope.

Easter was pretty much a non-event apart from delivering eggs and chocolate to my nieces, nephews and Corey. It didn't help that the weather was so bad. It actually hail stoned yesterday.

I have no concrete plans until I'm going to see mam in a few hours. So I'm going to potter, and do some house stuff, maybe take a walk and continue catching up online. I've also the last few eps of This Is Us to watch, but I don't want that to end so am stretching that out atm.

One small fannish thing. Bandom people, I hope you know [personal profile] lady_smutterella regularly lists the fills for the bandom bingo on their journal. They're worth checking out.

Eta: sadness. Just realised Guardians is next Sat not this one :(

Guardians of the Galaxy! Yay! I have no idea if and when I'll get to see that, but hopefully I will. :)

Glad you're getting your tooth fixed! It's probably a good idea in the long run. It does seem baffling to me (and it's the same here) how even when it goes through the healthcare system that it's so expensive! Nothing else seems to come close to that.

Oh for sure, having free healthcare in general is amazing, I just don't understand why dental isn't considered more of a part of it. I mean, if your teeth get really bad (not yours in particular; in general), it can actually kill you. How is that something that still costs so much? I know I for sure avoided dental work when I was unemployed because I still couldn't afford it.

Excellent news that James is well enough to go back to work! I'm really glad they're letting him ease back into it. The worst thing would be having to do long shifts straight away.

I just realised how behind I've gotten over the last couple of weeks, so I'm also glad that your Mam is doing much better and that your nan is feeling so well at the moment, despite the stomach ~thing~.

I'm looking forward to Guardians so much. I feel right in the mood for some humorous superheros atm!

I still haven't actually seen Logan. I meant to see it at the cinema and then suddenly it was no longer on and I was still just MEANING to see it. Oh well, it'll be out on DVD soon enough!

I'm so happy for James that he can go back to work. I know how it feels, and it does boost one's confidence.

Guardians of the Galaxy!! So jealous! The earliest I will be able to see it is mid-May, probably. Oh, no! Finally noticed your ETA!! Waiting sucks. >:-(

OMG, teeth, why so difficult???? Good luck getting it together. But yeah, you don't want it breaking or crumbling if it is weak now.

Enjoy your pottering.

Good to hear James is well enough to go back to work. *sends him lots of good thoughts*

Teeth are such trouble! And I will never understand why they're treated separately from everything else when it comes to health insurance.

Happy LJ18 to you! (If I hadn't deleted my LJ today would have been my 12-year-anniversary.)

I hope you'd a nice Tuesday pottering around.

Glad things are looking up for James, and also your Mum. Guardians of the Galaxy sounds great, I loved the first one! I get migraines from the cinema so have to wait for the DVDs but have just watched both Ghostbusters and Fantastic Beats and loved both.

Sorry for your bad weather, we've actually had some sun so Easter was good for gardening!

That's great that James is able to go back to work. I hope he'll be able to get back into a good routine. And I wish you as smooth and painless a time as possible at the dentist! That does sound like something that would be better taken care of before it gets bad enough to really bother you.

Those are some impressive stats! (And yes, I'm aware that it's extremely ironic of me to tell you that in a DW comment :)
