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 :-(
Been a busy start to the month - had a court hearing yesterday (2nd September) which hopefully went OK, but the puppy had
a poorly bum on her morning walk so I spent the day fretting about that. She seems fine today (3rd September) though, so
I've got loads of photo's of her while Steve's getting his hair cut: and
and and and
and last one for now:
The poor puppy is still recovering from yesterdays weekly 'marathon Monday' strolls, bless 'er, and has spent pretty much
the entire time snoring her head off, bless 'er. Got a few photo's of the sleepy puppy today though (8th September) and
she's in desperate need of a grooming session, so it's a good thing she's booked in with the groomers on the 24th then ;-)
Here are today's photo's so far: and and
and and last one for now:
It's been almost two weeks since I last took a photo of our beautiful puppy, but I've just (21st September) corrected that
with these two photos of her: and
Another couple of photos of the beautiful puppy: and
Loads of photos of the senior puppy this evening! Please sit back and enjoy:
and and and
and and and last one of the day:
It's taken me all day (22nd September) to get this one photo of the puppy just before we went for our evening stroll, so
I'm putting them all up together after we got back. Here's the pre-walkies photo:
and here's the two post-walkies photo's of the puppy dog pleading with Steve for his choccy biccie... I said no to both of
them and thankfully Steve didn't give it to her: and .
She's going for her first grooming session since March on Thursday (24th) because of the Covid-19 pandemic and oh boy does
she need it. She'll be able to see again when she comes home which'll hopefully help her to enjoy her walks again, with
her being able to see again, rather than trying to piece it all together through her severely overgrown fringe.
The puppy went for her grooming at 9.30am today (24th September) and she's just (11.20am) got back... she's a whole new
puppy! She was really feeling her age because of all her fur weighing her down (she hadn't been groomed since March
because of the pandemic) but she's a totally different girl now that most of that weight has gone and her ears are even
standing to attention again now! I've got 3 photo's of the puppy dog between Steve's feet and she's got into her bed and is
snoring away like a good'un now, bless 'er. These are this morning's photo's of the senior puppy freshly back from getting
her much-needed grooming: and and
- huge difference, right? lol Got a couple more of her fast asleep in her bed
now too: and and one of her looking
straight at you - Steve took this one on my phone:
A photo, taken by Steve again, of the puppy totally zonked out in her bed: I'm
gonna leave her be for the rest of the evening now though, so this will be the last photo of the day. Nite nite orl.
Mornin' all. I took these 3 photos of the puppy just before we went for our morning stroll today (26th September) but
putting them up after we got back and the puppy was fed, watered and medicated so please enjoy:
and and last one for now, cos I need
Back now, and Steve took this photo of the puppy dog while I was waiting for my laptop to lumber back into life:
Got a looong video of the sleepy puppy that's currently uploading to YouTube that you'll be able to see below this sentence
when it's eventually finished doing it's thing from my mobile phone. It's saying it'll take about 8 minutes so I've got
just enough time to go for a wee... brb.
Only just made it to the bathroom in time and there's only 30 seconds of the upload left to go, so that was good timing by
me I reckon! Here's the video:
Got a looong (3.5 minutes) video of the sleepy puppy today (29th September) her snoring was too adorable not to film lol:
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.
