'Sorry, I Forgot'

This is my second post for today, please scroll down to see my 'Sparkles Christmas' creation!
Hugs xx

I am so sorry this post is so late, it was set to post at 11 but Mr Blog didn't or I didn't do it!! 
I have a very poorly 15yr old at the moment. Katie had a virus when she was younger & it got into her muscles, making everything ache & along with her clicky hip walking is difficult! So after being to the Dr today he says she has got this virus back, it will lie dormant in her & anything could set it off.....nice of our old Dr to tell me that arghh!!! Anyhoos she's go to rest & drink plenty of fluids & stop off school, which is such a pain because my whole routine gets messed up lol!! Oh I know she can't help being poorly, poor love! So I will get around to visiting you all as soon as I can!

It's time for the start of a new challenge over at The Perfect Sentiment, where this week we want you to
