So Jade Goody and her boyfriend Jack got married yesterday, it is just a shame that unlike many young couples who tie the knot, this unity will not be a long one. Whatever you think of Jade – and before her diagnosis I can't say I was particularly fond of her – you cannot help but feel for the family she will be leaving behind. Her two sons are just 5 and 4 years old so not only does she have to prepare herself but those two young lads for a life without mummy. I cannot begin to imagine the heartache they're going through and I hope I never understand pain like that but it does make you think. She's only 27 the same age as me and a lot of my friends who are around their late 20's simply haven't bothered to have a smear test but this has been a wakeup call for us and I hope it will be for everyone. Fair enough, having a smear isn't the nicest way to spend your time but the alternative doesn't bear thinking about.
Now that the wedding is over and a lot of money has been made from magazine and tv deals for the boys, I hope she will spend the precious time she has left with her family and not with a tv camera.

I know today is Valentine's Day but in Wales there is a much more important event going on... something that only happens once a year... if the outcome is positive a lot of babies will be conceived this weekend (I'm not joking either)... if the outcome is negative then... nah we won't go thinking like that... it is of course, a 6 Nations weekend but more importantly than that it is Wales vs England at the Millennium Stadium this evening. I'm not a huge rugby fan I'll admit, football is my sport of choice, but at this time of year it doesn't matter whether you hate or love the game, every single Welsh person wants to beat the English. Here's hoping that it will be a great game and it ends the right way with a Welsh win lol
Ymlaen Cymru/C'mon Wales!!
Back to Valentine's Day and a bit of useless information for you. According to ancient tradition St. Valentine's is the wedding day of the birds, the day on which they choose their mates for the year. So not just a day for hugely overpriced red roses and chocolates and Hallmark greeting cards then! I wish every one of you a great day spent with loved ones and to the single readers, perhaps you will be like the birds and choose your mate for the year today *wink*

It includes 18 papers and 79 elements, everything is 300ppi (taggers is 72ppi) which is great for printing. I hope you like it and if you download, leave me a bit of love - it is valentines after all lol.

Firstly, let me direct you to this quick page made by Bree from my new kit 'It's All About Me'. You really need to visit her blog and click on the picture to see how nice it is. You can download it from her blog here and don't forget to leave her some love if you do!
Tamekia has made this tag using the kit, isn't it great? She has just set up a blog which you can find here, pop by and say hello.
Now onto the winners of the comp that I was running to win my new kit. I had some amazing entries and it wasn't easy to pick some winners but I did. The winners are:
All winners have been notified, so if you think your name is there and you haven't received an email from me, please get in touch. Congratulations girls!
Lastly, my poor little girl has been really bad for the last week with the flu bug that's been doing the rounds lately. It isn't bad enough to have the flu, she had to have a bug too. For the most part she's been sleeping around 14 hours a day and when she has been awake, most of the time she's been in the bathroom. Don't you just hate it when your kids are ill and all you can do is give them medicine and keep their fluids up. From other people who have had it, I gather it lasts 10-14 days so hopefully she'll be starting to feel better soon but until she does I won't be on the computer much.
I did manage to have a few hours break yesterday because I had my appointment for the hospital to see a specialist. It has now been confirmed that I have PCOS so at least I can begin treatment to manage it. Here I was hoping that 2009 would bring no more health problems for me lol Oh well!
I hope everyone is having a great day, I'm watching the inauguration right now and it's definitely going to be one of those 'where were you?' moments isn't it. Lets hope that Barack Obama lives up to all the hype and change is coming. Good luck to him!
