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 August 2019 today and we're starting off with a video:
She hasn't wee'd or poo'd for 24 hours and I'm starting to get worried. If she hasn't at least wee'd by this time tomorrow
I'm gonna call her vet to see if I need to be worried. It's been 2 weeks since she last slept here so maybe she's feeling
anxious or confused and holding it all in or something?
She's wee'd!! I can now, officially, stop worrying!
Just taken the opportunity to video the puppy again... she's awake so I've gotta grasp the opportunity with both hands,
Another short video of our baby girl... ignoring me again, tsk.
Our puppy poo'd overnight for the first time since she's been back home with us! Yaaay!
She's wee'd and poo'd again, which is so totally awesome and it hopefully means that she's realised she's back home
hopefully for good now! She still needs to be washed with a medicated shampoo, so she'll go to Steve's cousin (the vet
nurse) for that each time but she'll be home before and after it! Yaaaaay!
Three photo's and two video's of our puppy dog so far today - asleep in the photo's and awake in the video's this time.
Here's today's video's... deeply jealous of Steve's cousin for getting photo's of the puppy while she was awake and
actually facing the camera lol
It's been a couple of days since my last photo of our puppy, so wanted to correct that with a photo of the sleepy pup today
(5 August 2019):
She poo'd 3 times after we got home from her walk this morning, but hasn't wee'd since the weekend, I hope she's not holding
it in for some reason! She's still eating and drinking the same as normal, but her not weeing for days at a time is really
starting to worry me! If she doesn't wee tomorrow, I'll try and remember to mention it to Steve's cousin who's a vet nurse
to see what she says about it, then take it from there.
And another photo of our baby girl, still totally sparked out of course lol:
She's weeeeeee'd!! Such a huge relief! She squatted down and wee'd on our walk this morning (6th August 2019) so maybe
her thyroid meds mean that she only needs to poo every 2 days and wee every 3 now? They aren't huge wee's or poo's, just
the normal volume that she had for each of them, several times a day, before she started on the thyroid meds. She's still
eating and drinking normally, so maybe it's just a new normal for her now that the three of us need to get used to?
7th August 2019 - Mornin' all! A video to start off the day, then I'll take the puppy for her walk:
She's pooooo'd! We've just got back from the puppy's walk and she poo'd which I, of course, picked up. Maybe it's
her body's new desire to only wee and poo every couple of days? Maybe her thyroid meds have seriously expanded her
ability to hold wee's and poo's now or something?
Another video of our baby girl. Not sure if she's tired or grumpy or displaying Westitude, but she's adorable!
Apparently the puppy went out for a wee overnight so maybe her thyroid meds really are affecting her weeing and pooing
Video of our baby girl is below:
Our puppy is being "dog-napped" again at the weekend :*-( - it's for the benefit of her health because she hasn't had any
medicated baths this week so it'll be another week of intense treatment but it's going to be awful again! It's only for a
week, but even overnight is going to break my heart!! :*-(
A few photo's of our baby girl on the sofa next to me while Steve was out today (9 August 2019):
I've got a video of the puppy and hubby too, soon after he got home!
Our baby was a good girl on our walk this morning and she's going for another visit for intensive treatment again at some
point today (10th August 2019), so I've packed up her food and the measuring container and the pot with the rest of her
day's food in it. Gonna miss her soo much again! It's for her benefit though and it needs to be done to return her to
health, so it's for the best :*-(
Got a video of our puppy dog on the back of the sofa. She's actually awake in this video lol:
Steve's just taken a photo of our sleepy girl huggleing her toy chipmunk. I'll add that as soon as I get it via email
Just come through, so here we go: Can't see her chipmunk though, just a sleepy
And another video of our baby girl... she's actually awake throughout this video lol:
She's gone! Again! The next week is gonna severely drag and the love that comes from the puppy is already shrivelling up
like an apple left outside in the middle of a heatwave :*-( I just hope we'll have daily pictures of her via Facebook!
First two pictures of our baby girl last night (12 August 2019)!! She's obviously been chewing her legs again 'cos of the cone of shame and she's
using another puppy as a pillow, bless 'er!
Steve was sent this photo last night (15th August 2019) and to me it looks like her ear is infected again, but I'm sure
Steve's cousin is on top of it. What do you think?
The puppy is back home for the weekend!!!
Here's a photo and video of the puppy dog... she's definitely got a well-defined waist now and Steve said he can feel her
spine too, so hopefully she won't be on the vet food for much longer!
And a second video!
A second photo too - back to being asleep lol:
Another couple of photo's and a video:
Four photo's and three video's already and she's only been home for an hour so far lol
And another photo of her:
Sleepy puppy dog in her bed this time:
A photo of the puppy asleep again this morning (18th August 19):
A short video of a semi-naked hubby and the puppy:
And another video of the puppy doggy fast asleep on the edge of the sofa for a change:
And a couple of photos from the hubby: and
Just (19 August 2019) got back from the puppy's daily stroll and she's made me so proud of her! She's been with us for
2.5 days but she's already walked 1150% extra in those two days and that's already taking off the 700% for this
entire week too! She did exactly a week's walk on Sunday plus this entire weeks walks and 5.5 days of next weeks walks
on our stroll this morning. I've also been training her to sit and wait for each of her meals too and this morning, for
the very first time since I've been training her to do it, she did actually briefly sit this morning! Such a spectacular
little puppy dog!!
Probably the longest video I've ever taken of our senior puppy - 4 minutes and 20 seconds and she's actually awake in it
Our baby girl is ready to go back to Steve's cousin again :*-(
She's just (4.40pm on 19th August) gone for another week or so now and the house already feels empty without her, even
though she was only here for three days :*-(

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.
