Post Comment Love and Blogger Showcase 10-12 February 2017

Hello there and welcome back to #PoCoLo, if you were here last week it was lovely to see you. If this week is your first time then welcome, we're a friendly bunch and both Morgan and I hope you'll become a regular.

My week has been busy, and been one of contradictions. There's been a fair bit of hospitality and eating and drinking and at the other end of the scale there's also been a mammoth visit to the dentist. My crown is finally on, but not without a fight and some misbehaving, from the crown, not me. 

Somehow once it had the cement they couldn't get it on right, and the cement set so it needed to be drilled off. As a nervous patient anyway, this wasn't the best dental experience but there wasn't a lot I could do, was there?  It's on now, and has been behaving and I've a couple of weeks grace before I go back to pick up my mouthguard, which will hopefully protect my teeth from the grinding I've been doing in my sleep. 

Consequently I haven't taken many photos this week, but of course to contradict myself, and on par with my week I'm sharing two in this post. They're from a shop window on the way to the dentist, which I paused and admired as I arrived there earlier than I expected. I must have known I'd need some home comforts, and when I left I could quite happily have curled up in these. Well, apart from the fact they were in a locked shop's window, of course!

I'm definitely seeing a trend here with faux flowers, and I've a feeling I'm going to break soon!
