YouTube Madness!

If you have popped into my blog in the last couple of days you must have thought I had gone mad! I haven't been on as I have had a really bad cold! When will I have a month without some kind of illness! Roll on Spring! Anyway today I came on to check my friends blogs and found 3 copies of a YouTube video I had already posted! I had attempted to download them on the Share service they offer but they didn't show up that day or the next so I embedded it and forgot about the Madonna video!

Anyone know why it is taking so long to upload them? It must have been about 5 days from when I originally tried to them finally appearing!

Madonna - Like A Virgin

Antonia liked Bat for Lashes, but I want her to know what a really strong woman sounds like! Sorry if you don't agree!

Haven't we been here recently? Or is it Vegas again?!! So long since I saw this I had forgotten where it was shot!

Highs and Lows

I was so busy this morning! I had to get my husband's passport renewal off to the Embassy in Rome with enough time before his old one runs out! This involved a quick trip to the Consul, a visit to the bank for a draft and then finally posting it off at the Post Office. This wasn't so bad except it meant crossing the Arno 3 times, one after the other to visit each place! Anyway once it was done I went to buy a friend a birthday present then headed home.

This is when the low kicks in! Having been so busy I then came home to twiddle my thumbs as it were! So I studied a little Italian - very informative, I have a Berlitz PC programme that lets you record your voice and compares it with a native speaker, I now know why no-one can understand me, even when I think I am speaking perfectly correctly and clearly!!

Then I trawled all my friends blogs - happy women's day for last Saturday (this was a major theme!)

I also posted an hotel review on Venere for the hotel we stayed in in Venice. There was only one problem - we were moved to a different hotel so I couldn't review the one I wanted to. I got around this in the comments section, I hope. Anyone looking for a good hotel in Venice, check out Tribute To Music (that's really its name!) It's right on the water front, the rooms were big and the staff friendly. I'll be going back! And now I'm doing this!

I also received a very nice parcel from Amazon which should keep me busy for a while to come. I like getting parcels and DVD's and books are among my favourite things to get - doesn't matter if they don't fit and they rarely don't work!

Anyway, the upshot of this is that my Italian should improve!

Guess Where We Went For The Weekend?

A few hints at first, but I'm not going to make it too easy just yet! I'll let the photo's do the talking for once...

And if you haven't got it by now....! I suppose it could just about have been Las Vegas...
