November 07, 2006
A strange thing has just happened to me. I popped downstairs to fill my bottle of water and got chatting to someone about their daughter’s orthodontist appointment. Now, I used to be a Dental Hygientist so I offered her some advice on what was likely to happen, how well retainers needed looking after etc. then WHAM! a wave of nostalgia came over me and I really wanted to be back in a dental surgery with the lovely smell of hibisol and the radio playing in the background.
This really did take me by surprise because 6 years ago I couldn’t wait to get out of a job that I had been in for over 16 years and was physically demanding, mentally unstimulating and psychologically draining, hence a return to University and a career change.
Maybe it’s just a reminder that I need a check up…
