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 :-(


Pinch and a punch for the first of the month. It's 1st February today and I've got several photo's of our beautiful senior puppy: and and and and and and
You get a view of my chest out hubby in these photo's of the puppy on the arm of his chair, instead of on the floor for a change lol: and and and and and
The puppy is fast asleep in her bed now, bless 'er:
Back in her favourite position again:
Got two loooong video's of the puppy sharing Steve's tea so grab a drink, sit back and enjoy!
First video (7 minutes):
Second video (9.5 minutes):
Just taken a third, shorter (almost 5 minutes) video of the puppy:
And another reeeeally long one (very nearly 13 minutes) so I really am going to bed when that's finished uploading and I've coded it into here:

Morning all. Got a single photo of the puppy so far today (4th February) and she's going back with Helen for another medicated bath this evening, so I wanna take as many photo's of her as I can. She's got to have a blood test at the vet this week too, so I'll have to pay that as well as for her food as soon as I know how much it's gonna cost. Here's the photo I've got of the puppy so far:
Six last photo's and two short (45 seconds and 2.5 minutes) videos of the puppy, as we wait for Helen: and and and and and and the last one now that the puppy's gone: . Missing you already puppy doggy! Here are the two video's: and

THE PUPPY'S HOME AGAIN!!! It's getting a bit dark to take her out for a stroll and she's fast asleep in her bed, so I'll leave her be this evening and start with the photo's again tomorrow.

Morning all. As promised yesterday (6th February) I've taken a few photo's of the puppy dog that I'll inflict on you all when I've taken her out for her stroll. BBS!
OK, so we're back now so here are the photo's of the puppy so far today (7th February): and and and and and and she's up on her perch now, on top of Steve's cardigan so I've got a few more photo's of her up there: and and

Steve's just taken this one of me and the puppy:

The hubby took 5 photo's of me and the puppy this morning (10th February): and and and and
More photo's of the soggy puppy after our second stroll of the day: and and and and and and and and and
Today is a new personal best with the photo's - 22 today!! I'm gonna add these final 7 then head to bed: and and and and and and last one for tonight:

The puppy is, potentially, going back with Helen (thank you Helen!) today (11th February) and I need to jump in the bath at some point, ready for tomorrow so I dunno how many photo's there will be today... lets start off with these ones though!: and and and and and and and
Helen's coming to pick the puppy up after she finishes work tonight (thank you Helen!) so there will hopefully be loads more photo's of the puppy today. Keep checking back to see them all!
Another couple of photo's of the sleepy puppy: and
Got a couple of average-length video's of the sleepy puppy... can dogs become camera shy or is our puppy just feeling grumpy that I take so many photo's and video's of her? Here is the first video: and here's the second one:

THE PUPPY'S HOME AGAIN!!! It's just gone 2pm (12th February) and she's home!! Flaked out beneath Steve's legs within seconds so there prolly won't be many photo's or video's today while she recovers, but she's home for the week now!! She was only gone for about 18 hours this time so maybe she's having a good week or something? I certainly hope so! Here are today's photo's so far: and
A few more photo's before I head to bed for the night... I've taken my pills and they are quickly kicking in, so these'll be the last ones of the day: and and and and last one for the day:

Mornin' all. Got a few photo's of the puppy dog so far today (13th February) - even a couple with her looking straight at the camera! and and and and and and

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I took 8 photo's of the puppy this morning but our internet connection went down for a while for some reason so they are only going up in the afternoon. Sorry about the delay, but it was beyond my control. Here's the photo's: and and and and and and and
A few more photo's from just after lunch: and and and last one for now:

Mornin' all. Got several photo's of the puppy for you all so far today (15th February), so I'll get on with it now: and and and and and and

Mornin' all. Got a couple of photo's to start off the morning (16th February): and

Morning again all. I've already taken the puppy for a very soggy stroll this morning (17th February) and got these photo's of her a minute or so later, after I'd put her harness and lead back into the kitchen: and and and and

Mornin' all. Just a single photo of the puppy dog so far today (18th February):

Loads more photo's of the puppy, ready to go back with Helen now: and and and and and and and and and and and and and last one for now and potentially the night:
She's just gone! I'm missing her already! She can't come home soon enough, but it's in her best interests so it's OK I suppose. Hopefully she'll be back home before the end of the week and I've got loads of photo's of her to keep me going, so that's OK :-)

THE PUPPY'S HOME AGAIN!!!! (20th February) She was only gone for 18 hours this time and Helen reckons that it'll just be one medicated bath a week for a while, to see how the puppy gets on, but that hopefully means she'll only been gone for a few hours rather than a few days now, which is amazing! Thank you so so much, Helen!
Got a few photo's and a short-ish (2 minutes 27 seconds) video of the puppy so sit back and enjoy while I go and feed her: and and and and and here's the video:

Mornin' all. It's Friday 21st February and I've got a couple of photo's of the puppy in her nest that Steve created overnight: and
More photo's of the puppy, less than an hour later: and and and and and and


The Song
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.
