HELP PLEASE.....WHAT HAVE I DONE....

I am tearing my hair out here and feel sick with worry and do not know who or where to find out the answers to my problem.

Last night I deleted the co.uk and added .com..nrc/ on my google homepage at the top as I had heard from a few people to try this to solve the problem with no pencil to edit posts and now I seem to be stuck with a .com URL again and have the pencil back, sounds great but it is not.I am so worried as I seem to be the only one with a URL not ending in .co.uk and can not get it back to how it was....oh why did I have to fiddle with it, especially when not not a clue, what it's all about.

Does anyone know who I could contact (can only see a bit to post a question for all to see) to ask if I have created a problem (not even sure if it had anything to do with what I did) and can you please let me know what you see as my URL.and can you still see me in your reading lists.

many thanks

A very stressed Wendy xxx

Morning all..Hope you all had a great weekend, didn't it go quickly.

Hope all you Mum's out there were spoilt rotten, breakfast in bed, flowers, chocolates ect..

My wonderful & very special Son & Daughter gave me a rose scrub called Mum in a million, bless them think they thought I did not like it as I started to cry, I came over all emotional....I still (9 years on) and always will feel very blessed to have them after years of waiting for them and thinking I would never get a chance to be a Mummy and that's all I have ever wanted out of life, more than anything else.. 

Will now have to get out in our Garden and finish the tiding up and find room to plant my new rose...oh I do love roses and can't wait to see it flower, it's a pink one...

We had a lovely day yesterday, visiting my hubby's  Mum,in the morning and then we went to my Mum & Dads in the afternoon and had tea with them, our Katie enjoyed helping make the tea and tiding up afterwards and didn't want Mother's day to end, bless her...

Today I would like to share my card I made for my lovely Mum for Mother's Day...I have used a gorgeous Cherry Lynn Butterfly die (thanks Mum) and my new Whimsy shapeology dies called Vines, love them and thinks me going to use these lots and also one of the new adorable LOTV stamps called Pretty Bouquet... Mum and me love this image and rushed straight to the LOTV stand at the Make it Show as it opened to both buy it and a few more lol...

Song and (or) Dance

When I saw the theme for this week, I immediately knew which stamp I was going to ink up and use, the very sweet Lili of the valley stamp called Little Ballerina, isn't she adorable.

When I  was at the Make it Show last weekend, I was surprised at how much the dies seem to have taken over from punches,no where near as many Martha Stewart punches as previous years and was very disappointed not to get the ones on my wish list.....But I did make up for it with few lol...of gorgeous Cheery Lynn, Memory box, Die-namics, Go Kreate and Whimsy Stamps dies, I have used one of the gorgeous Memory box dies called Whimsy Circle on my card today.
