New look for my LJ for winter, even if it is a day late

Well, not so much a new look but new pictures and colour scheme - I have just discovered that my Sonic cineplayer has a capture video frame, and I've been playing around with it, my Buffy dvds and Photoshop.  One of these days I'll learn about banners, and make one for my LJ.  In the mean time I'll have fun with my incredibly limited knowledge.  It's not like I can perform a makeover miracle on my kitchen like some people I know  ::glances sideways at fer1213 ::


Feeling a little low this week, guess it's the slump after the birthday weekend and essay stuff.  To add to the woe I have been called for a 'meeting' at school with J's deputy principal next week, can hardly wait for that.  I will be so pleased when J has finished with high school - only four more months, halle*bloody*lujah.  Just like that old lady in Parenthood said, life is like a rollercoaster, full of ups and downs, but I'll take that over a merry-go-round anyday - just wish the lows weren't so low sometimes ... 


Off to my 30th school reunion the weekend after next, maybe that's the cause of the blues, 30 years since I did my School Certificate, plus seeing old school friends and worrying about how I look - have no idea why I'm going.  Oh yes I do - my mother still lives in my hometown, and I couldn't stand the guilt trip I'd get from her if I don't turn up ::grumbles, bloody mothers, bloody kids, bloody school reunion::

Blues could also be associated with my Dad's birthday - he would have been 91 yesterday, he died 21 years ago, and I still miss him as badly today as I did then.

The missing never goes away, especially on 'special' days.

Right there with Mr Fer, poor old BM won't know many people either, but he's coming anyway - I've got to have someone to talk to!

Oohh, I'm glad you like the colours, didn't realise they meant anything to anyone (well I'm not much into American football, so no surprise there), just thought they were appropriate for wintertime (yes I think it's weird that you're having summer too).

Didn't think I would be able to help out with the LJ colour thingie, maybe the green will grow on you ;). Pretty pictures down the side - easy, peasy. Me, Adobe Photoshop and photomerge are good friends - mind you that's about all I can do!
