Busy Evening

The framer arrived with the new samples, and to pick up some of the old ones with ten minutes to spare! I was really starting to panic that she wouldn't come, well it was the framing lady's husband, so he not she!!

It took longer than I thought to get OUR shop tidied up and locked up, so I was running late by the time I finally left! I rushed back to the car and zoomed over to Little Prince's school to pick him up. Luckily his class came out a few minutes late so he never realised I only just made it!! We then had to drive over to Drama Teen's college to pick her up and come back home. We only parked outside home so that Drama Teen could freshen up her make up and change from her glasses to her contact lenses. Then we were back in the car to go to the cinema, where Drama Teen was meeting Her Boyfriend to watch Wall Street. She wasn't that bothered about seeing that, but Her Boyfriend wanted to see it so she agreed to watch that one. We arrived about half an hour early, and Drama Teen had received a text from Her Boyfriend saying he hadn't even set off yet, so we called in to McDonalds. Me and Little Prince went to order while Drama Teen got Princess Lollipop settled down in a high chair. Little Prince first asked for a chocolate milk shake, then changed his mind and asked for a coffee!! When told he couldn't have coffee he asked for a cappuccino!! Even the lady behind the counter said he was way too bouncy to have coffee lol. He finally agreed that his original idea of a chocolate milkshake was the way to go!! Little Prince insisted on sitting on the high stools near to our table, and I spent the whole meal making sure he wasn't messing too much. He only stood on the stools twice, once jumping off right in front of a staff member and I only saw him hit the lights above the table once, so not too bad really!! Princess Lollipop surprised us all by eating most of her meal, she normally only eats her grapes and drinks her smoothie, but this time she ate some apple slices and a couple of chicken nuggets (AND one of my chicken selects too!!).

When we had finished eating it was time to drop Drama Teen off at the cinema to meet Her Boyfriend. She was going to pretend she had been stood around all by herself for all this time! Poor lad!!

On the way home Princess Lollipop kept hitting Little Prince with her balloon, for once he was being the sensible one and not messing with his own balloon!! This carried on with Little Prince getting more and more irritated with her and shouting more and more, until the balloon deflated!! Princess Lollipop was heartbroken and sobbed most of the rest of the journey home!! She was only cheered up by the thought of watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse when we got home. Although that upset Little Prince who has decided he hates Disney!! He doesn't want to come to Walt Disney World with us next year!!!!

When we finally got home, Little Prince went crazy, probably because he'd been cooped up in the car for so long! I keep having to tell him not to jump on and off the furniture and to stop grabbing Princess Lollipop or pushing her over! Not long till bedtime!!!
