Christmas 2008 at the Gould's

We had a wonderful day.  I just wished it lasted a little bit longer.  Lonnie received a pair of Ugg boots from Joe her boyfriend and was thrilled.  I was a happy bunny as well, as my gifts included more RAM for my laptop and a 250 gig HD, oh heaven!  Can you hear it purring?  Or is that me!  I was also given books by my favourite authors, Patricia Cornwell (dark) and Janet Evanovich (funny).  To top it all off I received a couple of games for the Wii.  How lucky am I?

Diazepam Fog

I'm blogging in bed today as my body as thrown a hissy fit after yesterday. I've taken my last two tablets of Diazepam and it's knocked back the pain a little bit, I'm feeling slightly mellow and at peace with the world (you've got to love Diazepam). I've just got off the phone to my GP and she's given me some more thankfully. This STUPID horrible disease, Fibromyalgia, can get you down and a lot more research needs to be done on it.

A friend of mine asked me what the pain was really like. I said I could show her better than describe it to her and she said fine go ahead and that she had a high pain threshold. After I gave her a Chinese burn on her wrist and she stopped whimpering she said that she now understood how I felt. She backed off when I said that I was going to do it again in all the other main parts of her body.

For those who don't know what a Chinese burn is, it where you grab the 'victim's' forearm or wrist in two hands, and twist the skin in opposite directions, a bit like wringing out a wet dishcloth!

London was beautiful in the winter sunshine. I walked along the Thames past the London Eye with the sun in my face, which was wonderful. I watched all the tourist taking photo's and soaking up the atmosphere. I guess when you see something all the time you take it all for granted. The London Eyes was stunning back washed by a beautiful blue sky. It really is a fantastic piece of engineering.

Just a Quick Post

Bear by Cutecolors

Just a very quick post to say hi to anyone passing by my little old blog. I had to go to London today to St Thomas' Hospital, (Tommy's) for an evaluation to see if I'm suitable to go on their Pain Management Program at the INPUT clinic. It was a bit of a waste of time as it was just a talk and a Powerpoint Presentation which was exactly the same as what is on the website and in the handouts given to me at my first appointment! It's left me exhausted and in a good deal of pain, OUCH!

I will post again soon, sometime this week. I going to try and get an early night and spend tomorrow resting and scrapping Hurrah!

Shropshire Weekend

The views from the Stockbridge Granary where we stayed at the weekend were stunning, here are a few of the photographs I took at the weekend from our bedroom windows.

Thank You

Many thanks to all who sent birthday wishes to me yesterday, it really made my day. I had a really 'wicked' birthday weekend I couldn't have asked for better. I laughed until I cried, ate until I thought I was going to burst and cried because I didn't want the weekend to end.

The 'Granary', was super. All the bedrooms had en-suit and the rooms were beautifully furnished. The only snag was that the place was huge so we were all exhausted having to walk miles to get from the kitchen to the bedrooms!

The weather wasn't too bad on Friday and Saturday and we managed to have a fireworks display on the Saturday evening as planned. We roasted a huge leg of pork and we ate it on soft rolls with homemade stuffing and apple sauce, yum! Then we all piled outside for the fireworks. We asked the neighbouring house if they wouldn't mind if we set off a few fireworks and they said it was okay, but I don't think they expected the show of pyrotechnics we put on, they where awesome. We had only one misfortune when the stick of one of the rockets snapped off and only went up about 20 feet, arghhh my ears are still ringing!

Earlier in the day we went to Ironbridge, Telford in Shropshire, the birthplace of the "Industrial Revolution" and the site of the first iron bridge in the world which was built in 1777-79 by Abraham Darby III and designed by Thomas Pritchard in 1775. I didn't go over the bridge because I have a phobia of bridges! But I did take some photo's and so did Lonnie my daughter. Here is a stunning view of the bridge looking over the river Severn.

Iron Bridge Shropshire, England
I'll post a few more photo later in the week as I haven't had time to go through them all yet.

Sunday was very wet and windy so we decided to stay in, some of us played cards, others just chilled and read or watched TV and kept the fire fed with logs. We all chipped in to make tea as we didn't want to go out into the awful weather.  It's amazing what you can do with a bit of Bree, pate, cold leftover baked potatoes, sausages and onions.  We made a meal for 15 for pennies and there was plenty of it to.

The journey home was hell though as the fields and roads were flooded, trees were down and there were a number of accidents on the road.  It took over three hours to get back to Hampshire.  But it was all part of the adventure and certainly something for us to talk about over supper for months to come.

Next year we want to go to the Cotswold's, we have our work cut out for us though as there will be 19 of us going in 2009.

I can't wait, I love my family so much!

Weekend Birthday Getaway

We are going away for a long weekend  next weekend to Stockbatch Granary, Pitchford, Nr Shrewsbury, Shropshire. Here are a few photographs.
It look like we are going to be 'roughing it'  ha ha.  The Granery is set in the grounds of Pitchford House, so we will be searching for long lost relatives as my mom's maiden name is Pitchford.
I hope the weather brightens up and warms up a bit, if not I will be fighting my daughter for the wellington boots.

Problem with png and gifs

this gif works
Can any one tell me how I can use png or gifs on my blog without the background showing up? After all that is why we use this form of graphic, they are supposed to have transparent backgrounds. I have used graphics in previous blog posts and they have had transparent background.  Both images in this post are gifs, one is transparent and one isn't.
this one doesn't

Cross Browser Problems

I was trying to help out a fellow blogger who as huge problems with her blog, and it made me think whether my blog worked okay on other browsers!

So I checked my blog out using FireFox. The only thing that didn't work was my cursor which on Internet Explorer is a cute little daisy. All the other stuff works, but then thinking about it I don't have that many widgets on my blog.

In conclusion; I think it's a good idea if you are going to change your blog layout and add loads of widgets it's best to check at least two of the most popular browsers on the market these days.

I'm off to check out Opera and Safari!
On another note, please, if you have a moment pop over and visit Summer Driggs' Blog. She has a fantastic kit called 'Gratitude', to give away. But more importantly she has a dear friend who's baby needs our help.

Follower Widget - GONE

I've decided to take off the Follower Widget from my blog. I don't much like My Space or Facebook because of the constant need to tell everyone how many friends they have. I don't like to feel my blog is judged by how many people I have following my blog.

I want to say thank you to all who followed my blog. I will continue to visit the sites of the blogs I love and I hope those that enjoyed popping by my little old blog continue to do so.

Why We Love Children

I received this is an email and it made me smile, I though I would pass it on in the hope that it to make you smile

Why We Love Children!


I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, 'Mum! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!'


On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents.'


A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'Mummy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.'


A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before'?

5) POLICE # 1

While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are you a cop?' 'Yes,' I answered and continued writing the report. 'My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told her.'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe'?

6) POLICE # 2

It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me, 'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked. 'It sure is,' I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What did he do?'


While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes,walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!'


A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party.When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.' 'And why not,darling?' 'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning. '


While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church,our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always said, 'Glory be unto the Faaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he goooes.'


A little girl had just finished her first week of school. 'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I can't read, I can't write and they won't let me talk!'


A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages.Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. 'Mama, look what I found,' the boy called out. 'What have you got there, dear?' With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam's underwear.'

What a wonderful world!!!!

Saving For a Rainy Day

I received this gift last Christmas from my dear friend Gill.  I promised myself that I would put a little bit of money in it each day, which have done plus all the bounty from down the side of the sofa and what I have dug out of the washing machine after each wash.  There is always the odd 20p or 50p left in the drum along side the rogue odd sock and a collection of buttons.
Today we had an un-budgeted monetary crisis as my son's 13 year old car needed a part which turned out to be quite expensive. So I decided to raid my little money box to see how much I'd saved.  I was pleasantly surprised to find just how much I had saved.  Needless to say I can now buy the part Jamie needs, and I can still have a girl's night out!  I like this saving for a rainy day idea, I think I will buy my sisters a little money box for Christmas this year, then they to can have a lovely surprise in October.

It Wasn't Too Bad

Well Wednesday wasn't too bad after all.  I knew in advance that there would be no power for most of the day, so I was able to prepare myself.  I don't know about you out there in blog land, but the thought of being without my laptop and access to the internet sends a shudder down my spine.

I managed to hang on and not light the fire as it was a beautiful sunny day, the sun warmed up the south side of the house.  I finally gave up reading my book at 3pm as the small print and low light was giving me a headache.  I took myself off to the local supermarket and did a bit of non vital shopping.  When I got back an hour and a half later the electricity was back on hurrah!

I made a chilli con carne for tea which everyone loved.  I had loads of comments about the depth of taste.  All I had done differently was to add a couple of good slugs of red wine.  It wasn't until I was half way through the meal that I remembered that we had run out of red wine a while ago, and as I don't drink, I had forgoten to restock.  All of my friends drink white wine and I've always got plenty of that for them.  I realised that I had used a bottle of wine that had been gifted to us to celebrate our 30th anniversary. I began to feel a little uneasy, but consoled myself that the wine might have cost about 10 or 15 pounds.  How wrong I was, I had used a 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes Domaine de Marcoux 1999 which comes in a slightly under £77 ($125).  Still it was a flippin' good chilli.
Let it be our little secret.

Tuesday, 21 October 2008


I've postponed my visit to the Midlands and we are going up on Saturday instead. One reason to visit was to celebrate my sister, Lily's birthday, but she want to party at the weekend instead. Another reason for getting away is that they are turning off the electricity tomorrow from 8.30 until 4pm, to do some vital work on the overhead power lines. If it was so vital, why didn't they do it earlier in the year when it was a bit warmer. So I will keep myself warm in front of the fire, read a book or two and just chill wrapped up in my duvet and eat my favourite cereals. If I get too cold or bored I will just pop into town and do a bit of window shopping. I might even start my Christmas shopping as I know what I want to get my Mom and daughter already.

I'm popping out in a while to buy some more logs as I don't want to run out. The logs I have already, aren't seasoned and smoke instead of burn, which is a bummer. Since getting the log burner I have become a real pyromaniac, I just love burning things. Mostly paper, but toast and marshmallows as well. I was toasting a marshmallow in front of the fire on Sunday and a ember jumped out. I jumped up and stamped on it as I didn't want it to burn the carpet. Now I have a black mark about 2 inches in diameter on my former beautiful cream carpet. I've tried to clean it but it's still there so I shall have to buy a rug or something I guess. I'm just glad I was in the room at the time and my house wasn't burned down.
See you later ....

Whoops Sorry

I've had a few problems with 4 Shared and I may have messed up some of the links to my Funky alpha, I'm so sorry. They are now fixed, to save you time I've re posted the 4 links here.

Hope everything is okay this time.

An Award For little old me

I am lucky enough to have received a very special award from eilajean. Eileen created this award herself, and I am thrilled that she has given it to me. Yellow roses denote friendship here in the UK, so I'm loving my beautiful yellow rose.
Thank you so much for thinking of me!

Tomorrow I will be visiting my family in the Midlands, so I won't be around until Friday or Saturday. Be good whilst I'm away won't you!

Blog Find of the Week

I came across this blog, It's Lovely! I'll Take It! And I wanted to share it with you. It's put together buy a very funny young woman by the name of Sara who comes from Washington, USA. I believe she is looking to move or do up the home she has. That is why she has a huge swathe of real estate listings on her blog. If you have a moment please pop over and visit, I promise you won't be disappointed. I howled with laughter as some of her quips and sarcasm.

I don't know why but this entry cracked me up, perhaps it was the WHY factor, or it could have been the orange teddy bear!

Oh well, it's 3am in the morning, I guess I had better try to get some sleep. If there is anyone out there who has a cure for insomnia, other than a hammer to the head, please let me know.


How Lovely

I have received a lovely award from Vicki over at A work in Progress.
Thank you so much for passing this on, it's such a lovely thing to do.
I have to tell you 6 things I love and then pass it on to 6 people.
Here are my 6 things:-
1. Steve my Hubby and my two children
2. Family
3. Friends
4. My Garden
5. Scrapbooking
6. Reading
I'm passing it on to the following people:-

See you tomorrow

Mojo is back ... I found it in the garden

Vicki AWP suggested that I did a bit of dancing in the garden to cheer me up and help find my mojo!

So off I trotted and was mid 'Mom', (very embarrassing dance produced by the over 50's)
and got caught by my neighbour, who was taking his wheelie bin down the lane! Yikes, I scared him to death but it cheered me up no end, so much so I went in and made some Christmas cards!


Thanks for your comment Bubbles, Vicki & Eilajean I'm back to my old self and ate half a packet of cookies whilst creating the Christmas cards below.

Cards made with Lettering Delights Christmas Angels & Art 4 Craft (a wonderful site full of smashing graphics created by the very lovely Helena who lives in Sweden.

See you later ......

Help I've lost my mojo!!!!!!!!

This is not like me at all because I ALWAYS have something to do, be it blogging, creating web sites, reading, gardening, making jewellery, making cards, watching tv, singing at the top of my voice, cleaning the house (well sometime lol). But today I don't want to do anything, I am bored, don't want to do anything, not even eat a cookie! My mojo has been hijacked or something. The thing that panicked me the most was ..... wait for it .....

I don't even feel like scrapping..... Gasp! It's horrifying isn't it.

See you later when I've found my mojo

I'm Not a Grumpy Old Woman!

I do find myself whinging about things these days. I don't want to beat the system, I just want it to work the way it was supposed to!

We had a lovely weekend here in the South of England. I was able to sit out in the garden and enjoy the garden and the birds. I spent a few hours whiling away the time fiddling about with templates for Blogger. Does anyone really know why xml code is so user unfriendly? Can't they just call things how they are. For example:- header, left column, right column, footer. Life would be so much easier. I think it's been made far more difficult than it should be, htm was so much more forgiving, and I could just about muddle my way through it.

Still, after a bit of a struggle I have managed to make my blog pretty. I love sparkly mouse cursors and trails, so I've put them on my blog. There is one thing I don't like on my blog and that's music. I spend a lot of hours surfing the net, mainly at night when I can't sleep. I find it jarring to be confronted with other people's choice of music. I get round this little problem by having my sound turned off. But sometimes when I've been listening to the news on my 'pute, I forget to turn it off again, and I jump out of my skin when the music kicks in at 3am, LOL!

I made this little flower head and stem whilst I was in the garden on Sunday, and I though I would pass it on. It's not much but you may be able to do something with it. The flower is edged with the words from one of my favourite songs by Gabriel, called Sunshine.

See you later ...

I Made a Blinkie

I made a blinkie! It's a little bit jittery but I'm quite pleased as a first attempt. I used Jasc Animation Shop v.3. I was wondering what you all use to make your cool blinkies.

So here it is ta dah! Take a look over on the right --->

Learning Curve - Adobe Photoshop

I use Paintshop Pro which I love and can create pretty most most things with it.  But a number of prospective employers have asked if I can use Adobe Photoshop, which I'm not too good at, to say the least. I decided to enroll in a Photoshop course this autumn but they were massively oversubscribed and would have had to wait until next spring.  So I decided to invest in a couple of books and teach myself.  I'm quite good at self tuition once I set my mind to it.  That's what I did with Dreamweaver and a few other applications.  The basic course would have cost me £66 plus parking fees and petrol, these two books came to £40.78 so I have saved a few pounds.  Perhaps I can treat myself to some chocolate to help me with my studies.

Mixed Week of Emotions

It's been a grim week all in all this week. One of my family has lost their job, I believe unfairly, but there is nothing that could be done about it. All I know is that they have devoted 10 years of service to this employer and they have treated them really unfairly. I personally think it will be the making of her to be honest because I have always felt they could do so much more with their career, time will tell.

Meanwhile my job search has proved fruitless. If I tell the truth on my CV about being registered disabled, I don't even get an interview. When I leave it off, I get the interview but they inevitably find out I have a problem just by the way I move. Plus I am told I have to tell them by law that I have a disability. If they found out later on sometime down the road I would be sacked! Talk about a rock and a hard place.

I came across a wonderful letter on the Internet a few years ago and I loved it so much I copied to my CV folder. I came across it the other day and thought I would share it with you.

Dear Sir or Madam

Thank you for your letter of October 1st. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me employment with your company.

This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.

Despite your company's outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at this time. Therefore I will initiate employment with your firm at the beginning of the month. I look forward to seeing you then.

Yours faithfully


What do you think, shall I send it out, is it worth a try? LOL

It's The Thought That Counts

Often in times of trouble
we don't know what to say,
So we choose to say nothing,
and sometimes run away.

When friends are really hurting,
we don't know what to do,
So we offer weak excuses
or say we're hurting too.

It really doesn't matter
What kind of gift we bring;
We only need to be there
if we don't bring a thing.

It truly is amazing
what a hug can do,
When heartache numbs the senses,
and friends depend on you.

There's comfort just in knowing
that you are not alone,
When tears are overflowing,
and hearts are cold as stone.

It's the loving prayers of others
that balance our accounts,
For when we measure love,
it's still the thought that counts.

Clay Harrison

Dedicated to family and friends we love, who are fighting cancer,
and to those we have lost. but will never forget.

Just Not Me

I've been messing about with my blog and I don't like it, it's just not me. I'm too tired to change it as it's now 5am UK time. So apologies for the naffness and I will put it right tomorrow.

See you tomorrow no doubt!

Funky Alpha - Bits and Bobs

I'm in such trouble today as I've so much to do having spent ALL day yesterday trying to research my family tree. I joined Ancestry co uk, which after struggling for about 4 hours I finally realised how to search the data. I'm as thick as a plank sometimes. I don't know how June from Cen's Loft does it, AND does all that she does AND finds the time to create kits and freebies. June, genealogist extraordinaire, if you are reading this I take my hat off to you.

I am now the proud owner of a little family tree that goes back to 1871 on my Mom's maternal side and 1841 on her paternal side. doesn't sound very far back but I'm so pleased with my progress. I do believe that genealogy (posh name for researching family trees) and scrapping, compliment each other. After all it's all about recording the moment or moments gone by.

Today after posting I have to catch up on the housework, buy groceries for the week, fix my car, as it's been playing up and not starting ever since going through three flood a couple of weeks ago. It probably just needs a spray of WD40 on the points or carburetor thingamabob hopefully. Plus I want to send of for some birth and marriage certificates from the Records Office for my new passion.

Anyhow .... here is the final installments of my little Funky Alpha. I hope you have enjoyed my humble attempt. I have loved every comment you have left me, I can't tell you how uplifting it is to be thanked. Thank you in return for all those that did.

I just love this quick page by Vicki, just right for my two favourite photo's of my hubby. I added a few elements to the QP as I wanted to use two photo's. The photo's were taken whilst on holiday in Javea, Spain. It was a special moment as we had just agreed we would look for our own house in the sun.

Rant about the Large Hadron Collider

The world's largest physics experiment is taking place today at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN).

4.4 Billion pounds to find a Higgs Boson and other particles, I am speechless. The comment made by Brian Cox, one of the mad professors taking part in this farce, left me speechless. When asked about not finding the Higgs Boson, Cox stated, "It will be more exciting in many ways because it will mean that we have understood much less than we thought about Nature", what absolute rubbish!

Yes, let's just throw more money at it, keeping Professor Cox and his cronies in a cushy jobs, and forget about those on this planet who are ill, hungry, uneducated, unemployed, homeless! Do they think we are stupid?

As to the 'Black Hole', people fear will be created today. Well here's a news flash, 'it has already been created', by politicians who run our countries into the ground whilst lining there own pockets! Just who is funding this tosh?

End of rant

Blogger and Google Chrome

I was just wondering if any of you have had any issues posting or editing your blog whilst using the new Google Chrome browser. On one occasion it wouldn't allow me to insert a image, but the next day I tried it did. Then it wouldn't let me move the image to where I wanted it to go. The default position on Blogger always inserts the the image at the top of the post, how annoying is that at the time, and that's not always where I want it to go!

I think I'm going to wait until Google bring out a toolbar for their OWN browser as I HAVE to check the spelling 'cus I'm sad like that! Seems strange that they have a toolbar for IE and Firefox but not their own, don't you think?

Posting in Blogger is great as it has it's own spellchecker, but I always like to check my spelling when I post a comment on any blog I may visit, I would hate to leave a 'smelling distake', on their blogs.
Have a lovely Saturday. I'm off to find my water wings and /or a boat as it's piddling down here in the south of England AGAIN.

Big hugs

You know how it is... the photo's come back and you hate them. Cries of "My nose looks big in that one", or "That's not my good side". Well, I've found the 'one' photo I though made me look great! lol and here it is. I think I was quite cute when I was 4. I actually remember the ribbon and the dress.

Have you got any cute photos of when you were 4 or 5? I think I've seen one of you Vicki when you were a 'ickle' girl.

Catch you later my blog readers .... all 3 of you x
