Hello! This site (my domain) will be totally hand-coded so please don't laugh? I'm still learning!!
The coding was learnt from the Brat Pack in their HTML room... thank you so so much, ladies!
If you want to email me, my address is amanda dot k dot george at googlemail.com... sorry for not doing it as a link... I
just don't want to be spammed!
My undieing love and very grateful thanks goes to Steve for putting up
with me and being there for me while I was in hospital and since I've come out!... without his help and support I would
still be reluctant to use stylesheets!
Well this is different to my very first site which had a bright green background and bright yellow text!
It goes without saying that I want to say a huge thank you to my mum, dad (R.I.P) and brother for everything they've done
for me all my life!
I also want to send out a big wave to Natalie, Sarah and Katie... they stuck by me when no-one else my age did!
What else do you want to know? There isn't really that much to tell! I live in Kingsholm, Gloucester, UK, with Steve who
is my husband and we're going to get a dog from Dogs Trust when I'm
steadier on my feet so that we can both take it for walks which will hopefully help us both to loose weight!
We're also going to adopt a child when I'm better as I've got Endometriosis which probably means I'm infertile so adoption
is what we're going to do when I'm healthier... the way I see it is that there are already lots of unwanted children
waiting for adoptive parents to love them and as I'm infertile we can shower a child with love whether they are ours by
blood or not!
What else? Oh yeah, I'm a massive Take That fan (you can see their singles videos
here) and have been
since the day them came into the English charts! Also, I went to see their Beautiful World concert on 20 November 2007 and
it was brilliant! I also went to their comeback concert and the Circus concert but I can't remember the dates I went to
see them! Oops! I've also bought all their albums from Amazon that I'm going to keep wrapped up so that they will be
worth more in years to come... I told you I was a massive fan! lol
I'm also a chocaholic and Mandy pointed me to Hotel Chocolat
and their chocolate is gorgeous! If you're in Britain, give it a go! If you order their slabs be careful though 'cos they
haven't got grooves cut into them like Cadbury's so either do like I do and bite into it or get a hammer and smash it
into small pieces!
I'm also a Pagan and have been for a few years but I still consider myself to be a newbie!!
That will do for now... if you can think of anything else I can put on here just let me know and I'll put it up!
This is me!
Just gone to get me new glasses and figured I'd punish you all with another shot... this is me with me new tortoise-shell
glasses looking demented!
If you wanna see a terrible video of me, I've just created one that you can see below:
Feel free to laugh as loud as you like - I'm painfully camera shy and have been my whole life after being told I was ugly
so often in childhood :-(
Start of a new month (1st October) today so time for a new set of photo's and video's!
The puppy has just gone again, but only until Thursday this time, so we're only without her today and tomorrow this week.
The puppy's home for the weekend!! Yaaaaay!!! I've already (lunchtime on 3 October) taken 3 photo's of her, so let me just resize them
then I'll put them up... hold on while I do that now: and
Got a 7 minute video of the puppy this evening:
Just the one photo today (4th October) 'cos she hasn't been out of her bed all day! Hopefully she'll feel more active
after she's had her tea though. Here's today's photo: It's my birthday tomorrow
so hopefully she'll be more active and let me take a couple of photo's of her then.
Yep, 10 photo's in 15 minutes after saying that she wasn't active lol She was definitely more active after I fed her and
here's the proof: and and
and and and
and and and
and the last photo of the day:
Happy birthday to me. Celebrating with 2 photo's of the puppy so far this morning:
and . I was wrong, got a shortish (1 minute 29 seconds) video of the puppy now
too, while I was resizing the second photo, so here it is:
The server seems to be going through the upgrade atm so I can't upload the photo's and video yet... if you're reading this
though, it's obviously working again now ;-) lol
Got another video of the puppy dog and a rare appearance by Steve too:
Nope, still not able to get to my homepage or navigation page and I bet I'll forget to upload the photo's when it's finally
Another photo, relaxing between Steve's feet bless 'er:
And we're back (6th October early evening)! Here's a couple of photo's of the puppy dog to make up for the 36 hours my
site was down for: and
Another 5 photo's before I head to bed: and
and and and
Let's start today (7 October) off with a 2 minute long video of the puppy while Steve's at his medical appointment:
A couple of photo's and another video of our baby girl: and
and here's the video:
The puppy has just gone again :-( She's coming back on Friday this week though, so it's only 2.5 days without her, but
my heart is breaking already!! :*-(
THE PUPPY'S HOME AGAIN!!!! Having some issues uploading anything to this site atm (11th October), so dunno
when you'll see these... if you're reading this, then I've sorted it lol
and one from Steve:
Let's start the day (12th October) off with a photo and video of the puppy pretending to be asleep lol Genuine question,
can dogs become camera shy like humans??
...and here's the video:
Another video of our puppy:
A couple more photo's... she's actually awake in these lol: and
Another photo of the puppy. Curled up in her bed, fast asleep again bless her:
It's wet 'n' soggy out there this morning (13th October) so I'm gonna start the day off with a 5 minute video of the puppy:
Steve's just taken a couple of photo's of the puppy on the sofa: and
Last photo of the day before I head to bed:
By T.S. Wilkins - sent to me personally, please don't steal it!!
When the wind has settled and the sea is calm
And the whisper of peace is around,
Freedom will dance in the sparkling stars
And the river will play its sound
If you listen carefully, you'll hear it all
The melodies new and old,
The voice of freedom will gently sing
To a kind and special soul.
You may wonder why I'd tell you this,
For what does it truly mean?
It's that pause within your daily path
To hear sweet freedom sing--
For though I cannot give a lot,
I'll give you this, my friend,
A gentle blessing from my heart,
This song that doesn't end.
