Mr Messy had to be in OUR shop by 7.30am!! The Signwriter was arriving then to install the window graphics we've ordered onto the inside of OUR shop window. We have found that people don't look up to see the shop sign and seem confused about what we do or sell in OUR shop, so thought that having "Photography" in great big letters on the window would help!!

I had to get up and get Little Prince ready for school, and Princess Lollipop ready too. It was a shock to the system to be doing this after having so much "time off" from it! And of course we ended up on the last minute at school!! Me and Princess Lollipop had to go into school for Little Prince's IEP Review Meeting with his class teacher. We had a chat first about how they were going to implement the provisions of his Proposed Statement and about who they thought might be a good fit to help Little Prince one to one. Then Little Prince was brought in, to Princess Lollipop's delight :-) As soon as he came in she told him to "Dit dow" (sit down) which amused his teacher. He loves signing his name on the form to say he attended the meeting, and was very proud that his signature was much neater than Mummy's!!

After the meeting we had to go home and wait for the Car Repair Place to return Mr Messy's fixed car after his recent accident. The car was brought back on a trailer and looked all shiny, clean and new :-) I paid the insurance excess and its all ours again.

Me and Princess Lollipop then drove over to OUR shop to take over from Mr Messy while he went on a family lifestyle shoot. When he finished at the shoot he went straight home and emptied his hire car and returned it to the hire place. Luckily its a hire place that gives you a lift home, so he was able to collect his own car and come back to OUR shop. He says the car is great, apart from its pretty hard to start, which the insurance repair garage reckon could be a problem with the glow plugs.
