I've just found a lipoma on my thigh, at least that's what my GP says it is and it's going to be removed. For those in the audience (Have I even got one? For all I know I could be talking to myself!) not in the know, a lipoma is a benign tumour, largely made up of fat, I think. This is not some ploy to get liposuction on the NHS and sucking it out is not an option, as far as I know. At the moment it's about 8cm across and the doctor said it would just get bigger if left. It's weird really, being so big, you'd have thought that I would have noticed it sooner. Something to look forward to in 2008 :-/

I mentioned my son's films earlier. He and I have been working on a project for the past couple of years. My father was a bit of an amateur film-maker (home movie stuff really), and took some rather lovely films in the 1930s. A few years ago I had them all transferred to digital media and now we're presenting a condensed version of the highlights on Youtube. The film has been split into three parts, due to restrictions on Youtube:
My daughter, Rebecca Clamp, has just released a Christmas single called 'Paper Boats' which can be downloaded from the iTunes store, with all profits going to Greenpeace, Finland (she happens to live in Helsinki). So here's the video of the song.
