I'm now 22 years young ;) and I was very excited to show off my new, less swollen face.
The previous week was my parents 25th wedding anniversary, and as it was silver, they threw a party - the only day free was my birthday so I shared it with them :)
Here's a few pics from the night
Aiden, Bojo and my face :)
I'm still so nervous when photos are taken
Bojo and my boyfriend Tom :)
Friends and family
My dad and Mom
The previous Saturday was a goodbye party as me and my cousin, Olivia, leave for uni, she's off to Bangor, and I'm off to Stoke-on-Trent
I had a great time, and so did Tom - it was his first time meeting all my relatives - I think he made a good impression ;)
Now then, back to all this face business!
I do actually have a complaint, I'm starting to get some sensation back in my chin which is getting me down as it's so horrible. It twitches and twinges, and feels like electric shocks, or someone flicking my in the face.
my gums are still completely numb on the bottom which makes me not know how hard I'm brushing my teeth.
I only have to wear my one set of elastics at night now, which leave my teeth free in the day.
I have an OFFICIAL de-brace date!
Tuesday 17th September! 9.30am to have my braces removed, and impressions taken, then back at 4.30pm to get my retainer fitted - I'm excited!
ALSO, I move out in 5 days! Moving to a shared house with 3 other class mates, and Tom :) I can't wait!
But for now, I'm off to bed as I've just got back from the night shift, and I'm back at work at 11am tomorrow :(
Night guys, I'll catch up with you all soon x
