Exciting News

Sorry this is a bit late,  spent all day yesterday and most of last night at the hospital with Mum, she fell out of Bed on the last day I was in the USA, she was taken to the hospital and released the same day,  she has been in pain every since I got home and yesterday I rang the Doctor and he arranged for her to be taken back to the hospital where they discovered she had a fractured hip.  Anyway she is now staying in hospital and getting the care she needs.


I  have some really exciting news to tell you all today, whilst at the CHA I was asked by the lovely Lols and Heidi from Simons Says Stamp Challenge to join the DT, didn’t take any thinking about I immediately said yes and started doing the Happy Dance in the Convention Centre.  So here is my first card as a DT member.
