DD had a few spots round her mouth yesterday morning, then through the day got one on her stomach and a huge one on her leg. This morning she has woke up with another 2 on her leg and 2 on her back, she doenst seem poorly in her self, the spots do have blisters in the middle.

She had very bad chicken pox 2 years ago and was hospitalised with it, i was just wondering if you could get it twice and if its milder the 2nd time cos she doesnt seem poorly in herself. The one on her leg is very angry and the size of a £2 coin!!

yes, but rare

Go see your doctor it could be something else like an allergy to something like a plant if she has been running around in the garden/park.
