I've had a quiet and boring day today :-) Mr Messy took Little Prince to school and then came home and picked up Princess Lollipop and took her for breakfast with him and then to OUR shop. He also visited the new "horsey" shop that has opened in the same town as OUR shop, to buy a curry comb to sort out the mane and tail on OUR shop's vintage rocking horse. He got talking to the new shop owners (who are in the shop we originally wanted to rent, but lost at the last minute) and they laughed and said they had originally wanted the shop we now have!! Mr Messy, however, is glad we have OUR shop, as the "horsey" shop seems very small inside now they have their displays up and OUR shop is much more roomy and airy, which is way better to display Mr Messy's photographs. While they were at OUR shop Princess Lollipop found a new way to dust the coffee table - full body rolls all over the table top!!

I spent the morning waiting in for a delivery (new Converse trainers for Drama Teen) and sewing nametapes in Little Prince's new school trousers. I just need to shorten them slightly now and he's all set :-) Well until he has another growth spurt anyway!! It was a wonderful luxury to have the house to myself and to enjoy the peace and quiet :-)

Mr Messy came back with Princess Lollipop at lunchtime, although she was desperate for a nap not to eat! She was almost asleep before he even left again to go to his photoshoot! So I had even more quiet relaxing time to myself :-) Until I had to pick Little Prince up from school that is! He wanted to go round to his friend J's house, but it wasn't convenient with J's Dad which caused uproar from both boys!! Little Prince was eventually persuaded to go and pick his scooter up from the scooter park, but as soon as he got to the car with it he threw it at my feet and stomped into the car! I told him to get out and put the scooter in the boot, and to apologise, after much grumbling and whining he did as he was told!

Mr Messy brought a chippie tea home with him when he returned from OUR shop, and by the time we'd tucked into that it was almost time for Little Prince to get ready for bed. I'd just got him all tucked up when Drama Teen rang to be picked up from her swimming jaunt with her friends and boyfriend. She arranged where to meet her Dad and he set off, with instructions to go to the next door supermarket and get Little Prince some wellies for his school trip tomorrow. By the time they got back Princess Lollipop was in bed and I was ready for some company and someone to talk to lol. Drama Teen had a great time swimming with her friends and was telling me all about it as we watched a programme about children in the UK care system.
