Annas Birthday

As it was Anna’s Birthday……  she was actually allowed the week off! However before she went Helen made one of her diabetic comatosing creations, covered in Lindt chocolates……  although obviously no-one ate it as it contained sugar and as true dental professionals that would be totally unethical….
