Tilda Watering - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
I been on a bit of a Spring cleaning mission the past few days, I even wrapped up looking like I am preparing to go to the North Pole & then had a little potter in the garden. Spring cleaning has come to an abrupt halt now as I stupidly picked up an old washing up bowl of sand hubby had left laying around outside the back door after cleaning his bearded dragons out & it was a little too heavy for my shoulder to cope with which caused my shoulder to dislocate & I dropped the bowl & managed to take about a third off my middle finger nail in the process, ooooouuuch. Finger eventually stopped bleeding, bandaged up & very sore, shoulder also strapped up so I am just sitting around with my feet up like lady muck now lol.

Jodie has been whizzing around the desert on a quad bike today which she loved, thankfully deep sea diving has been cancelled, phew lol. Apparently there have been a few shark attacks the past few days & the sharks are still lurking in the area so the diving instructors said that snorkeling may be able to go ahead instead which Jode was still happy about & had me screeching "do NOT even put a toe in that sea" lol, but snorkeling has also been cancelled as it's too dangerous, so they are spending tomorrow on a private beach instead, hopefully staying on the sand & not venturing into the sea lol, & home to muma with all her washing on Friday :)

Today is new challenge day at
