Another 2 Christmas Cards

Hi, Well i'm so glad last week is over with - what a nightmare !!!

1) I've been called up to do Jury Service - can't get out of it, as it was deferred 4 years ago, when i was pregnant !!, but instead of spending some time with my 3 year old, he has got to spend 2 weeks of the summer hols in nursery !!

2) There was an outbreak of Kennel Cough at the kennels Whisper is going into this afternoon - so we had to rush her over to the vets and pay £38 for the vaccine - she may still get it, but the vaccine does stop some of it and she is 12, so all helps.

3) Took son to hairdressers and he's picked up nits from his nursery !!, oh joy, so we all had to be done with 'Headdrin' and fortunately it's sorted it out.
