………………..A.N.D………………..

When Life Gives You Lemons…………..

July 7th, 2010

There’s been a lot of Lemonade making in the Johnson-Richards home at the moment…

Firstly, Sophie has been poorly, again………..!
After a visit to the vet…………….. even though she’s not been in a Kennel and she’s been injected against it, she’s been diagnosed with Kennel Cough……………………….. and its fair to say
she’s feeling rather sorry for herself!!

Then… later that very same day Christian, flew over the handle-bars of a BMX bike… and that little stunt…
{forgive the pun}
…left him with a cracked collar bone……. AND the consultant explained it appears from the foreign body showing on the x-rays he also has a fracture……
{……………Way to Go Christian……………}
Poor Christian, now the tears have gone, all I can say is…
‘Boys will be Boys’………….!
