Sad day

Today was a sad day in the Johnson household. Several weeks ago we got four kittens - we only meant to get two but they were all so sweet, and one was the runt of the litter so Craig couldn’t leave any of them behind (yes, he’s an old softy!!!) One of the female kittens, Snowy, was killed this morning in somewhat tragic circumstances.

The children are really upset and have had two funerals today - Ellie and Sophie got their hopes up that she was going to come back to life as cats have 9 lives don’t they?? I hated having to tell them that sadly she wasn’t going to resurrect.

In other news, there seems to be a bug in the house. Robbie hasn’t been well for several days with sickness. He looked like he’d recovered yesterday but has relapsed again today. Jack has slept most of the day and has a temp over 100. And poor little Alfie has had an upset tummy for a few days.

Millie was back at the Drs today with her ears. They seemed to have cleared up over the weekend but have started oozing and smelling again. The Dr took a swab to find out what is causing the infection and given her more anti-biotics and a spray. Hopefully this will clear it up but he’s asked us to go back in 2 weeks to get it looked at again.

It’s the first full week of the summer holidays and the children are poorly - typical!! I’m really lucky that they are very rarely ill but when they are it’s often more than something minor.

We haven’t done much yet - we usually have lots of plans for the holidays and never get round to doing any of them. I’m thinking of taking some of the children camping for a night, just somewhere local so if it goes hideously wrong we can come home. We might even put the tent up in the garden to play in - I loved having a tent up in the garden when I was a kid.
