"Which one of you smokes?" "Me"
"Which one of you drinks?" "Me"
"Which one of you did I have to have a serious sex ed chat with?" "Er, me"
"And which one of you has seen the inside of a police house more times than I'd like?" "Er, that would be me too."
"Okay. And Ben is the one that's out of control?" "Yes!"
He (as in the Higher He, not He Joseph) surely knows how to test me!

So, nothing to report. Need to amend my 2 assignments now I've feedback from the drafts. Have uploaded a couple of short clips of Ella playing in the snow to my Facebook page. Trying to figure out how to upload here, want to share Ella's Christmas Show, her school is just so good with the children :) ETA look at the videos, that school is simply the best at bringing out the best!
Argghhhhh! Why is nothing simple. So I have downloaded film (or is that uploaded? Who knows, who cares!) from Sony camcorder onto the computer. I can put these PMB MPEG-2 files onto a DVD and watch it on the tv. But I cannot convert them to a movie and save onto the computer to enable me to upload one film - all 11 mins of it - onto here. Or You Tube. Why is nothing I ever plan to do simple. I swear Him Upstairs really thinks I don't have enough spare time. So, going to upload some of them to Facebook and put a link from here today (21st Jan) at some point. Wish me luck, I may be gone a while...... Okay, this is the best I can do. I can't combine the 10 clips. Very disappointed with myself :( So I have uploaded 4 of my favourite - of course they've all got Ella in. You know since we adopted her what a joy she has been, and singing and dancing is one of the best things. 11 and can't even write Ella, but watch her knowing the words and moves - amazing :) Enjoy!!!!
Arghhhh! I can't believe they're not loading now. Just going to have a stiff drink or six...will be back!........That's better. Right, if the clips below don't work, this link will (well, of course, knowing my luck, won't!) take you to all the video's http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?v=app_2392950137&ref=profile&id=1153542301
Hottie for the day. Oh, only doing this for this week - there isn't that many drop dead gorgeous fella's out there - or maybe it's just as you get older you get more fussy? Eh, probably not. Just did my Fine on Facebook - £535! The boys joke about how daring and cool they are - where do they think they get it from LOL. Sorry, back to hottie - My favourite today - Antonio Banderas, not too clean cut, and the voice **swoon** Enjoy :)

The My Fitness Coach arrived today. No more excuses. I need to lose a lot of weight and get fit.
No photos to share. I did do a Truprint order and they have a fab idea where you can order a collage of photos on one 6"x4", 7"x5" or 8"x10" which is perfect for the December album I want to do. I don't always want a photo of something minor, but this way I could document a day out on one page. Plus, works out cheaper, and now I can put off getting a new printer a bit longer. All good. So instead, here's a mini book I completed over the Christmas and New Year break.

A roof over our heads. With our money worries that's not completely gone, but che sera sera.
Joe's head injury has left him with his sense of taste and smell a bit dodgy. When I think how much worse it could have been ........
Ella's still fitting, but they're not getting any worse.
Joshua seems to be sorting his head out - no thanks to the doctor who was talking out of his derriere when he mentioned Joshua and Autism in the same sentence!
Joe has got a new girlfriend and he seems to be calming down again :)
Jeff and I both have a job in the current economic climate
I may be tearing my hair out, but thanks to said job I'm going to add a Playwork qualification and a Teacher Training degree to my c.v. Who'd of thought it!
I still have the most lovely bunch of friends anyone could have, even if some are scattered over the globe!
Ben hasn't yet been expelled! And we've found out he likes playing guitar - bass - takes after his mum :)
We were asked to be Godparents to the most adorable little girl :)
Ummmm. Even the obnoxious probationary p.c. deserves a mention. Because of him I am absolutely determined to lose some - a lot - of weight! I know you all love me as I am (well as least one of you! LOL) but maybe I would love me a bit more if I shed some baggage.
Altogether, although 2009 was probably not in my top 10 fav years, it could have been so much worse, and for that I am very grateful.
