As mentioned in the last post Little Prince got up early again today, and ploughed his way through most of his Halloween sweets!! Although after watching lots of American made Halloween TV programmes he is insisting its Halloween candy!! I made him some breakfast, but as expected he didn't eat much of it!! He did have a large glass of milk, so at least he had something healthy inside him!! He was happy to be going back to school to see his friends, he misses them during the school holidays. I popped into school to chat to his class teacher, as we had received his Proposed Statement last Friday and I wanted to make sure he was aware of that. She says the 13 hours support it states that the school will receive funding for him is a great outcome. She also said the wording about "reducing the support so that Little Prince doesn't become dependant on adult assistance" is fairly standard wording and not to worry about it. She agrees that he will probably need more support when he reaches High School, and will be very supportive in trying to obtain that for him.

Me and Princess Lollipop then drove over to OUR shop and met Mr Messy there. After his exhausting day yesterday he decided to work from home today, so we will be in the shop together. He received a message from the Posh Shop he did the fashion shoot for yesterday, asking if they could come over to collect the images at lunchtime in time for a meeting they had this afternoon. Mr Messy went back home to put the images on a disk, but found that the export from the editing programme would take over 6 hours, so he will drop the images off at the shop later. He also has to take the preview album to show the couple from a recent wedding he shot tonight - busy boy!

To my utter surprise the first visitors we got in OUR shop today were my Mum and Dad :-) They hadn't said they were coming over and just turned up out of the blue :-) It was lovely to see them :-) Me, Mum and Princess Lollipop went to the bakery for lunch and a chat, and then took Princess Lollipop over to the newsagents to get her some chocolate. Mum doesn't see her grandchildren all that often, so when she does she loves to spoil them :-) And me - she treated me to lunch :-) Thank you Mummy :-) Dad went for a liquid lunch at the local pub! We got back to OUR shop and sat on the sofa chatting and playing with Princess Lollipop until Dad came back and they had to go and catch their bus to the train station to make their way home.

Drama Teen is finishing College early today, and is coming to OUR shop to meet Mr Messy. Although me and Princess Lollipop will have already left to pick Little Prince up from school and won't see her till later.
