Look What The Stork Brought - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello peeps,
EDITED - Arrrggggh blogger wiped most of my post and all the comments, it's taken ages relinking sob sob.
For those of you lovely peeps who get email updates thanks for letting me know you were emailed a card from March but it's linked to this post......weird lol. Now it's over to my original post that vanished during bloggers wobbly -

Yes I'm back again, two posts in one day is rare for me but I've catching up to do after being MIA for a few days.

Life has been so hectic here, Jodie has been stressed & stroppy as she's playing catch up with college coursework to make deadlines due to falling behind when she was poorly before Easter & needed 3 weeks off college. Our lounge has looked more like a study as she's been spread out with folders, books, pens & pencils etc which has played havoc with me being mrs neat and tidy lol. She's had hubby tracing pictures of various bodily systems for her and quizzing me on things like the Endocrine system, Lymphatic system etc when she's been baffled by the long winded explanations in her text books. It was a very long time ago that I learnt about them & I'm sure it's not good for me having to do all that thinking lol. Jode has also been using my laptop as something is wrong with her netbook so I've only been able to look at it longingly especially as the internet problem was fixed on Monday.

Today is new challenge day at
