Life is a Journey

Good morning all, I hope you are all well.

It started off lovely here yesterday but turned cool and rained quite heavily when we were in Edinburgh. Eldest managed to get his suit so he's all sorted for the wedding now, just need to get hubby's suit dry cleaned and we're all done. 

Things didn't go quite so smoothly at the dental hospital and they had quite a struggle getting the wisdom tooth extracted as it was so big and the roots were dangerously close to the plate he has in his jaw as a result of maxillofacial surgery a few years ago. They had to break the tooth into four bits in order to extract it, Gary says he blacked out at one point!! I would imagine he'll be quite sore and bruised when he eventually gets up today!

Today's share is another page for the Mongol Rally album using some more of the photos of them and their convoy buddies on the road in Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia

Created in Craft Artist using "Ticket to Ride" from Mye de Leon.
