A Pearly Thank You - Simon Says Stamp DT Card & Mini Candy Winner

Hello peeps,
We had such a long day at the hospital yesterday & were both shattered when we eventually got home, but fingers crossed hubby has finished with trips into hospital except for a check up next week & life can return to some sort of normality at last. Hubby had 6 syringes of infected fluid drained off his knee & straight away he said it felt sore but much better than it did. When I saw the nurse come out carrying 2 large bottles of fluid for testing I was a bit gutted I didn't go in for a nose as I do like to supervise lol, but I was too busy chatting away to various strange men in the waiting area, and it was very odd that it was all men there!  I was there so long I felt I ought to meet & greet everyone and offer them coffee like I do at home lol. I think the only man I didn't end up yapping to was a prisoner chained to his guards, & since we had to travel to the hospital in Shepton Mallet & Shepton prison is for "lifers" I think I can safely say he was a "friend" I didn't need to make lol.

Today is new challenge day at
