655 – Bread & Toothache

In the 1800’s and the 20th century, this building housed one of the Royal Navy’s victualling centre. At its height, the bakery here (under the arches towards the middle of the picture) will produce 10,000 loaves of bread per day which were ferried out to the ships berthed in the harbour, and at anchor out in the Solent.

In some ways, this grand facility is a little bit forlorn today. Attempts are being made to bring some life the area, there are a couple of rather nice restaurants and bars here. Along with space for retail units on the southern side of the central unit. Other than for the people who live in the converted barracks and buildings nearby, what is there to attract people to this area of Gosport? It’s a work in progress.

It Began about three weeks ago. I noticed that when I bit down there was a twinge of pain on the left hand side. It didn’t really affect me massively until last Wednesday, when something clicked and biting down became really quite uncomfortable. On Thursday, I phoned the dentist and was lucky to get an appointment a couple of hours later. I explained that it felt like the pain was on the lower left side. The dentist had a good poke and prod and took a couple of x-rays, couldn’t find anything and so gave me a prescription for antibiotics and booked another appointment for two weeks hence.

Well, it only took a day or two. By Saturday morning, any contact with a tooth on the upper left hand side brought instant and intense pain. I embarrassed my self whilst phoning the dentist,leaving a voicemail saying that I had visited “the vet” – why on earth I said that I have no idea, but I am cringing about it.

Eating since yesterday morning has been very problematic. Doubly frustrating is that this afternoon (Sunday) I cooked the meat for a family barbecue, the results of which I could only eat by nibbling away at everything using my front incisors, like a rabbit! Following the advice to eat on my right hand side resulted in frequent collisions and agony. It’s another call to the dentist tomorrow hopefully.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
