Mummy's little Helper

Good evening folks i hope you are all well and looking forward to a rapidly approaching weekend lol were do the days go or even the weeks come to that.

I would just like to thank all of you lovely peeps for your get well wishes for my Mum, and a massive thank you to all my DTs teams for allowing me to take a break to look after mum.

Anyway a little update for you my poor Mum is feeling much better today the Dr has taken her off of some more of her tablets she is able to eat properly now thank goodness she's still not up to full strength but at least we are getting there, so everything is falling into place for mum now.

Talking about falling our poor little Lexi had a fall this morning and cut her lip and inside her mouth open, so off we went to the hospital and we had to wait for a facial specialist to come from a different hospital because of were the cut is on her lip it just keeps popping open so tomorrow she has to go to a different hospital to have a plastic surgeon repair it, bless her she was as good as gold with then poking and prodding it too, would you believe they are doing it at seven thirty in the morning.

Anyways while i'm here i thought i would post a card i made a couple of weeks using one of Darsy's dairies images this one is called Mummy's little helper and you can get her here i will will list a the other bits and bobs a bit later as i'm playing beat the clock lol.

Thanks for looking and i hope to start trying to catch up over the weekend.
