The Dentist Who Is Not Allowed To Retire!

Well seeing as the last time I had a guest blogger and it went down well, Little Miss H asked me to post another of her stories! We found out a few weeks back that our dentist is retiring, which is dreadful! We actually enjoy going to see him, which is undoubtedly the mark of a truly great dentist, I'm sure you'll agree!

So inspired by the writing competition and a desire to let our beloved dentist know how much we appreciate him, Little Miss H wrote him this story.....

The Dentist Who Is Not Allowed To Retire!

This story is about my kind dentist, Mr Brieslin, who is about retire. I have known him for nearly ten years. I was even going to see him when I was in my mum’s tummy and when I was a baby with no teeth! My dad has been going to see him for all of his life as well. He is extremely kind and never hurts your teeth. He has grey hair and blue eyes. He wears a special dentist’s jacket, which is white. I think he is about sixty but I am not sure and he is about to retire, but I don’t think he is older enough! I WILL MISS HIM LOTS! No one else will be as good as him.

Before I go to the dentist I always brush my teeth to make them extra clean. When most people go to the dentist they are scared, but I’m not. Whenever I go to see Mr Brieslin I am not scared one bit! I wait in the waiting room with my mum and I read the books and play with the toys. The receptionist there has dark brown hair and we are very good friends with her. She always smiles. My mum always talks to her when we are waiting. When the receptionist says that it is our turn to go up, I have to drag my mum away from her to stop talking. It’s like a mother’s meeting!

Mr Brieslin’s chair turns into a bed and I lie on it. My sister and me always fight about who gets to go first! My mum makes us take turns. When you lie on the chair/bed and Mr Brieslin looks at your teeth you can see up his nostrils. His nostrils are very hairy like my dad’s chest. I tried to count them once but after 87 I lost count! It makes me laugh so much that I end up giggling when Mr Brieslin is trying to look at my teeth. Mr Brieslin has special instruments to check my teeth with (not musical instruments!) Whilst Mr Brieslin is checking my teeth he says all different letters like this q f y j I m d h and I think he is talking all jibber jaberish. Once Mr Brieslin has finished checking my teeth he gives me a sticker. He never ever forgets to give me one! Mr Brieslin is all ways smiling! He has lovely teeth. I often wonder who his dentist is?

When my sister needed braces Mr Brieslin took three of her teeth out and it didn’t hurt her one bit. She said he was the best dentist in the whole wide world! That is another reason why I will miss him. I don’t know what will happen when I need teeth taking out? I wonder what he will do when he has finished being a dentist?

I wonder if he will miss me? PLEASE DON’T RETIRE MR BRIESLIN!

Thank you for keeping my teeth FAB!

On My Birthday

The lovely tagged me in this new Birthday meme (created by Kate at The Five Fs). All you have to do is give a whole load of facts based on the day you were born. This is where Wikipedia comes in handy!
So... Without further ado...

When is your birthday?  December 17th 1971

Pick three people who share your birthday and share what you know about them.
Paula Radcliffe, English runner, runs marathons in long white socks which I think help her to run faster!
Jacqueline Wilson, English author, whose books both of my girls have adored, but I find sometimes sad!
Tommy Steele, English singer and actor, oh dear God!!

Is anyone listed as being born on the same day (and year) as you? What do you know about them?
1971 – Alan Khan, South African radio & TV presenter, I know NOTHING about this guy!

List three people who died on your birthday and share what you know about them.
James Hazeldine, English actor (b. 1947)
James Hazeldine (4 April 1947 – 17 December 2002) was a British film, stage and television actor. He was born in Salford, Lancashire.He was best known for his television appearances in London's Burning in which he played Mike "Bayleaf" Wilson from 1986 to 1996. He also directed some episodes. This is quite sad as I used to love London's Burning and I used to live near Salford (although I'm not sad I now don't !)

List three notable events that happened on your birthday.
1718 Great Britain declares war on Spain.
1903 The Wright Brothers make their first powered and heavier-than-air flight in the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
1989  The first episode of television series The Simpsons, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire", airs in the United States.

Tell us about a holiday that falls on your birthday.
National Day (Bhutan)  The National Day is a designated date on which celebrations mark the nationhood of a nation or non-sovereign country. This nationhood can be symbolized by the date of independence, of becoming republic or a significant date for a patron saint or a ruler (birthday, accession, removal, etc.). Often the day is not called "National Day" but serves and can be considered as one. The National Day will often be a national holiday.

I am tagging the following to share with us what happened on their birthdays!
