i don't like parking in the staff car park as 9 out of 10 times i get blocked in by other staff members or visitors, so after a rant and a rave i decided i wouldn't park in the car park anymore instead choosing to park at the entrance of the car park on the side road off the main road.

few weeks pass and everything is cool, i don't get blocked in and i manage to drive away with out my temper flaring.

yesterday me and a friend decided we would go out for lunch, halal subway to be specific.... we decided to go in her car instead of mine, we drive off, 45 minutes later where back with an extra 15 minutes left of our lunch so we decided to go to the bakery behind the school, we drove past my car and everything was great.

5 minutes later where back with our 'pecan muffin and death by chocolate' and low and behold theres a man in a suite standing next to my car and the driver window is all shattered all over the floor in a thousand pieces !!!!!

he was talking on the mobile to the police, apparently he witnessed a car drive past him, stop by my car, some deranged idiot smashes my car window, leans into my car and takes of with the cd/radio player *******

well as you can imagine i was not impressed...

the man in the suite had witnessed it all and had even taken down the registration number of the car and bless him gave his number and address to the police in case they needed to contact him.

on the one hand you get complete idiots who have no morals and values and who society should kick out and on the other hand you get people like the suit man who take the time to help others and who give you hope in the human race.

the police i guaranteed will not chase this up, if they do then i will eat my hijab..

i had an appointment with a dentist to check my teeth out as i hadn't been to a dentist in 3 years, I'm not NHS as i cant find one plus when i do there is a waiting list aaaaaa.

anyway so of i go for a consultation. i open my mouth, he hmmmms and haaaas at my teeth, tells me that i need a root canal as well as various fillings and says it will cost over £900 !!!!

and gave me a bill of £40 for looking at my teeth. well as you can imagine i was not impressed nor happy.

the second day i was sat at my parents home grumbling to my mum about the price of dentists in this country, when my dad walked in to the room, saw my face and asked:

shin fee? (whats up)

me: baba, its so annoying, blah blah blah dentist, blah blah prices.

baba: seriously? root canal at your age?

me: yep, sadly that is the case.

baba: laysh matimsheesh il tunis? (why don't you go to Tunisia?)
me: Tunis?
baba: yep, they have cheaper treatment for teeth, you should look into it, might get a holiday out of it.

so i researched and found that quite a few brits travel to Tunisia to sort there teeth out and enjoy the sun at the same time.

booking the hotel and flights as well as treatment still cost less than paying for dental treatment in the UK, plus i got a holiday too.

i booked the hotel in Souse and my husband works with a Tunisian dude whose sisters best friend is a dentist, got her number an arranged an appointment to see her.

only thing was she lived in an area called 'al-hincha', about an hour away from where i was staying, and because it was not a tourist area, transport was not easy to get hold of, but it was an experience, and we met the locals and it was great.

we thought we might check on a local dentist in sousse about a minute walk away from the hotel.

the secretary (who wouldn't stop laughing and smiling) asked us to enter the dentist office, we walked in and found a man chain smoking, coughed and asked us to take a seat.

he asked what the problem was, i explained to him and then he told me to follow him into another room, asked me to sit on the dentist chair thing, put the light over me, and without washing his hands or putting on gloves, he put his fingers in my mouth!!!!
lets just say my husband was not impressed lol.

so we decided to stick to the one that we had an appointment with, and hamdullilah she was excellent, and her facilities where brill and she was hygienic lol.

i had to have three separate sessions, and every thing including root canal, ceramic tooth and crown, cleaning my teeth, fillings and removing an extra tooth cost me...... £230!!

plus i really had a great time visiting all sort of places...
