Update on my wee guy

Good evening all,
Sorry i don't have a card to post but i should be back tomorrow with a card but i'd thought i'd let you all know my wee guy John is doing alot better he was put on steroids on Wednesday and then on Thursday another trip to the doctor and he has been put on a steriod inhaler which has made is breathing so much might even see my story in the newspapers soon if the council don't get there backside up here and sorts out the damp and rotten floorboards i have in this house i think this is causing some of my son's breathing difficulties i'm not a happy momma at the minute.

I would also like to say a BIG thank you to a dear blogging friend Shirley (nannieflash) for the blog candy i won i can't wait to get playing with it !!! 

Fingers crossed i will be back tomorrow with a card as John should be back at nursery and i will get some chilling time to get some cards done.

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend...thank you for popping by.

Love and hugs Nikki xxxxxxx
