Me and Mr Messy worked on OUR shop's retail price list as we got the prices for some more products from our supplier last night. I had to fiddle around with it for ages to fit it on two sheets of letterhead, but I finally managed it :-) I printed out a copy to take to Little Prince's swimming lesson later, to give to the Mum who was enquiring about having a shoot of her family, including her four boys.
Me and Princess Lollipop left in time to go and get Little Prince from school. We picked him up and went home to get ready for his swimming lesson. He managed to pack his own bag with minimal prompting and we set off. Mr Messy met us in the swimming pool car park and took Princess Lollipop round to OUR shop, while I stayed at the pool with Little Prince. According to his teacher he had a great lesson, he dived for a brick at intervals all the way from the shallow end to the deep end. He didn't think he could do the dive at the deep end, but after some reassurance from his teacher he gave it a go, and was so pleased with himself when he managed it - I'm so proud of him :-) After swimming we went round to OUR shop and amazingly found a free carparking space right outside!! A minor miracle lol!! We went in to chat with Mr Messy and Drama Teen (who had gone there straight from college) who were busily feeding Princess Lollipop with chocolate!! Argh!! Its taken me all week to persuade her that she can't have the chocolate and stick to healthy snacks!! Little Prince was over excited to be in OUR shop and his behaviour deteriorated rapidly, so I sent Drama Teen down to the Chippie to buy mine and the littlies tea and got us home. Drama Teen stayed to keep her Dad company while he closed up OUR shop, and came home with him a little while later.
When me and the littlies got home we ate our tea and then had a relax in front of the TV, watching Playhouse Disney which Princess Lollipop loves and which is quite calming for Little Prince. No violent imagery or fighting or anything to get him wound up just before bed!! When Mr Messy got home he took Little Prince to bed, he was very tired from his late night last night and went up with no fuss. Princess Lollipop was obviously tired and went up not long afterwards, she seems to be getting into a routine that includes an early night :-)
Me and Mr Messy spent a lazy evening catching up with our recorded episodes of Criminal Minds. Although I've seen these episodes before, its still nice to drool over Derek Morgan in an evening :-)
