Somethings happening!

I had a reply to my support ticket and they say they now know what the problem is but it may take them a while to sort it out!

Well at least I heard back from someone. There are still loads of people with support tickets submitted with the same problem so it's been quite a big issue!

Lets hope they sort it out quickly and I can use my journal again properly very soon!!

Old Photos

These photos showed up on my Facebook timeline this morning as being posted four years ago. It's quite sunny today, although it is cold, but what a difference!!

Yesterday I had a really beautiful card with a lovely encouraging message from

And also I think there are a couple of people I haven't thanked yet,
moredetails - for your lovely address labels
& kehlen_crow for your lovely Christmas card

both of them arrived at the beginning of January.

Thank you all so much for sending them to me. I am very lucky to receive cards and gifts from all over the world x

I do apologise if I miss replying to any of your comments, especially if you replied a few days after the day I posted. I still haven't got my LJ problem sorted and I still can't validate my account. I'm not getting any notifications in my message inbox about comment posts so I'm having to go checking back every day.

So... one of the things I cant do is send PMs. I don't know if I can receive them as I don't know if anyone has tried to send me one, but I haven't had any since Christmas Eve so I'm guessing not - if someone would like to try to send me one and let me know what happens that would be good thanks!
This is going to give me problems for the Balderdash game as part of the game is everyone sending me their definitions by PM.

Another thing I can't do is schedule posts. Well I can schedule them but then when they should have posted just say 'error' at the bottom of the page.

aimingtobefit kindly paid for my years paid journal, this time, as I didn't have any money before Christmas. I'm quite cross that I'm only just paying her back now and I'm already paying for something that hasn't worked now for between 10 and 13 days!

Does anyone have any suggestions about who else apart from support (which I seem to remember is just other LJ people) I can contact to try and get my problem sorted out?

A song I like to clean the house to

Recently, I've been listening to a lot of Eurovision radio podcasts while I've been cleaning my flat rather than my own music, but I do have a flat cleaning playlist on my mp3 player and this is one of the songs on the playlist.

Show Me Your Love sung by Tina Karol was the Ukrainian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006. The song was composed by Mikhail Nekrasov and Karol herself, with lyrics by 2005 host Pavlo Shyklo (aka DJ Pasha).

In the final, the song received 145 points, placing it 7th in a field of 24.

New Years Eve

On New Years Eve, Steve and I did our 'Christmas holiday drive out' to Castleton to see the Christmas lights. The people who live there decorate their whole village with coloured lights and Christmas trees and it is a lovely place to visit.

My pictures really don't do the place justice! -










Here's are a couple of nice piccie I found on the internet of the village with the lights and snow -
