Well, here we are again!!

I cannot believe how long it's been since I last blogged. I know life has been busy, but really, where has the time gone?
Since I last blogged, my eldest daughter has married, and my eldest son has got engaged to his childhood sweetheart - must be something in the air...
On a personal note - despite leaving school at 17 with only 'O' levels, I have been accepted to study for an MA in local history - the only problem is, I can't get any funding, despite the fact that this would be my first degree. I have contacted various organisations, foundations and charities, am doing boot sales, table top sales, saving loose change and anything else I can think of to raise the money. I don't know if any of you have seen - it's a website that sells pixels to companies to advertise their products. Having had it pointed out to me, I thought perhaps it would be worth trying something similar to raise my tuition fees - I know it's cheeky, but short of selling my (rather ample) body, there' s not much I won't try at this stage! The idea is in it's infancy just now, but the idea is that companies or individuals pay a very small sum to advertise on my blog, or to send messages to loved ones - anything legal or decent, in fact!
