It's Another One.

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.
  I have been waving my Daughter off to work in the dark for what seems like ages and suddenly I realised it's light, YEAH,  and the days are definitely longer.
Have to start the diet tomorrow,( hee hee)  for summer!!

Well my card should have posted this morning but didn't, just can't seem to work out this shcedule thingy, don't know if it's the time that's wrong or what but this is the first opportunity I've had today to come onto my blog. I didn't realise how much time it would take to cancel electricity and gas and give final readings and cancel direct debits and phone clients etc etc etc... OMG sick of the phone being stuck to my ear lol.

Anyway it's a new Challenge over at Songbird and the theme for the next two weeks is
Mama, I love you, (Mother's Day)
Boy has this one been hard. I haven't made a mother's day card since my mum died and I still miss her sooo much. So I shed a few tears to myself! Gonna put it up for her anyway.
