Rest of Saturday

When Princess Lollipop woke up, I decided we should go out. We went to an office supplies shop, to get a long ruler (for measuring photographs for framing) and a proper office sellotape dispenser. The office supplies shop is in a small outdoor shopping centre, so we then went on to look at a few other shops. I bought some wooden Halloween decorations for OUR shop, they are a lot nicer than the plastic tat that you normally find for Halloween decorations and will suit the ambience of the shop. And the florist is putting next weeks floral display in a pumpkin, so OUR shop will look Halloween-y without looking cheap and nasty. We then visited Little Prince's least favourite shop in the world (Next!!) I didn't really see anything I liked for either of the littlies, so we went on to a shoe shop where we got Princess Lollipop measured and bought her a gorgeous pair of trendy black fringed boots, and some sparkly black party shoes. She tried on a pair of patterned patent black shoes, but they looked way too "school shoe" so I didn't buy those. The sparkly ones look very dressy and cute on her :-) As it is getting colder and she is wearing tights (including brightly coloured ones) more often she needed black shoes instead of just her white summer ones.

Little Prince had totally had enough by that time and was already acting up in the shoe shop, so I decided to call it a day. We went to get yet another fast food meal, we've had over a months worth of fast food in one week!! I'm going to have to stop being lazy and get back into the habit of cooking! And quickly!!!

By the time we got back home, Mr Messy and Drama Teen were home from OUR shop too. They had tidied and cleaned before leaving, including waxing the wooden furniture, vacuuming and mopping the floor and getting all the washing up done :-) Well done you two :-) Hopefully Mr Messy has also tidied his desk!! He has got to learn he can't have it looking a tip, its on full view in OUR shop and needs to look tidy and professional!!!

I didn't see much of Drama Teen as she was getting ready to go to a new college friend's birthday party. Mr Messy dropped her off, and I got Little Prince to get ready for bed, Princess Lollipop wouldn't go to sleep, probably due to her longer nap earlier! I watched another programme I'd got on the Sky+ box, we are down to about 10% storage left, so we have to get them watched!! When Mr Messy got back we finally got Princess lollipop settled down to sleep and started to watch some more episodes of Criminal Minds. Hopefully we'll get to the end of the episodes I've already seen, but Mr Messy hasn't soon and then I can start enjoying watching them a bit more again!!

Mr Messy was a bit late setting off to pick Drama Teen up as we wanted to finish watching the episode we were in the middle of first! Mr Messy had set off about twenty minutes earlier when Drama Teen rang to see where he was! She went straight to bed when she got home, after making her Daddy a lovely cup of tea :-) Rather than being sensible and going to bed ourselves, we watched the rest of our saved episodes of Criminal Minds, we are now totally caught up! And we've freed up quite a lot of space on the Sky+ box too :-)

I was playing on Ebay while I was re-watching the Criminal Minds episodes and have found some gorgeous toddler Christmas dresses by Bonnie Jean. I am going to see if I can win some for Princess Lollipop to wear in OUR shop during December - she will look STUNNING :-)
