Thursday Evening

Drama Teen made her and Little Prince some tea, but he threw a wobbly because she didn't ask him what he wanted first!! After lots of fuss, and me ending up shouting he did eat it! Princess Lollipop refused point blank to even touch hers, except to throw it across the room!! I left Drama Teen supervising while I fitted the twin DVD players in the car, its such a faff getting them in and out that we hardly ever use them, but as I've got tinted windows I've decided to leave them in the car now. They worked perfectly as a distraction for the littlies while Drama Teen had her singing lesson :-) Even with Little Prince insisting on fast forwarding/rewinding every few minutes!! It was driving me insane, but Princess Lollipop doesn't really follow the stories so she wasn't bothered at all!

After the lesson we drove over to the DIY shop, and despite being assured last week that they would get more stock of the lights that Mr Messy has chosen they still didn't have any. Luckily he's seen some similar ones in a different shop, so we'll get those instead. Then we went to the supermarket, they had a huge Halloween display and the littlies choose their Trick or Treating costumes. Little Prince is a going to be a Ghostly Pirate and Princess Lollipop a Baby Witch :-) Although the hat supplied with her costume won't fit over her curls so we bought a headband with a mini witches hat on instead, which fits her perfectly and looks incredibly cute :-) Drama Teen doesn't want to go Trick or Treating this year, she is trying to persuade us to let her have a Halloween party instead!!

By the time we got home it was time for Little Prince to go straight to bed, he was quite happy to go up as he was fairly tired. When I went up later to tuck him in I found another reason he didn't argue about going to bed - he was reading his Harry Potter by torchlight lol. Somehow I managed to get Princess Lollipop to eat something and then get tucked up in bed in between putting mine and Mr Messy's tea on, and it being cooked, so I got to eat without sharing with Princess Lollipop for once!!

Once we'd finished eating me and Mr Messy researched dehumidifiers for OUR shop, as we've noticed it gets quite damp and has lots of condensation. We don't want any of the photographs getting damaged so hopefully this dehumidifier will do the job, we'll just run it overnight so it won't annoy me and Princess Lollipop (and all of our customers of course!) during the day. Princes Lollipop woke up part way through the final choosing of which model to buy, but I got her straight back to sleep and was able to finish choosing and actually buy the one we chose, it should be delivered within the next two days :-)
