10. And me.... well a couple of extra hours in the day wouldn't go a miss. I would be fine if I didn't have all of these extra personal projects - but well I have.
PS (please Santa) don't forget that I like Chanel handbags.

You see I have a bit of a big handbag habit and that causes me no end of problems when I am trying to find anything in there. If you call me on my mobile you'll be used to me not picking up because by the time I have fished it out of the depths it has stopped ringing and I can never, ever find a pen or my keys - or well anything at all actually.
It has been said that I should perhaps down size but, well, I don't want to - and now it looks like I don't have to.
Enter Fizpouch! A handy little organiser thats just begging to be packed full of the stuff that usually evades you. Five outer pockets that nicely house my iphone, Blackberry, notebook and business cards and a couple of pen pockets for speedy access. Open it up and there are two roomy compartments and a zip pocket.

Her family now lives here in the UK and they are trying to adopt another child. This is proving very difficult because on nonsensical legislation. Please read over the email (below) that she sent to me. Lets get behind her and her to offer a deserving child the family life that he / she is being deprived of.
Most of you know that my husband and I have both biological and adopted children. We are particularly passionate about children who desperately need families but languish in foster care instead. In the US we were trainers, teachers and advocates of foster care and adoption. Here, we have been thrust into the limelight about an issue we feel strongly about:
We've been turned down to adopt a mixed race sibling group who has been looking for a forever family for about 2 years. Simply because we are white. We've even been told that it is better for a child to NEVER have a forever family of their own than to have one a different colour. We could not disagree more.
What's even more frustrating, is that there is a double standard in place...fully black couples, for example, are allowed to adopt half black and half white children, but white couples can't do the same. As a result, if you are a child of colour in the UK, your chances of being split from your biological brothers and sisters or never being adopted is extremely high.
We want this to change. Race should be a factor in deciding adoptive placements, but only ONE of the many that you must consider. Every family is unique and every child is unique. We just believe that, in a system which says that old, young, convicted criminals, singles, couples, gay, straight, married or not, rich or poor, etc. can be considered for a child, race should not automatically block loving families from adopting children of mixed races.
If you agree, we would be so thrilled for you to sign our petition, and forward it on to anyone you think might be interested:
Ian and I are going to be on BBC1's The Big Questions this Sunday at 10am discussing the issue, if you want to hear more about the issue and problems it creates in the UK.
Sierra Distribution, Ltd.
Please get behind them by leaving a comment here, re tweeting this information and signing the petition.

Mine is not a standard birth story but it is one that I have been trying to write for the last fifteen years, unable to know where to begin.
|After months in hospital I'd dropped from 10st of muscle to under 6st. I was like a bag of broken bones.|
