Mr Messy and Drama Teen left early to go and do a Bump Shoot with Baby Sis and her Fiance in our old home town. So I was left here with the littlies again. Mr Messy had said we would only get in the way while he was trying to photograph :-( I know he's right, but I still wish we could have gone too :-(

The weather started off ok and then turned yukky and wet, so once again we stayed in the house. I think I'm starting to get cabin fever as it was driving me nuts by the time Mr Messy and Drama Teen returned!! I insisted that we go out for tea as I was NOT in the mood for cooking. However, I had a headlight bulb out in my car and my "bibber" had stopped working so I had to lock/unlock my car manually at the drivers door. Mr Messy didn't realise the car could be locked/unlocked using only the key (he thought it would set the alarm off doing it that way) and so he volunteered to stay home with Drama Teen and Princess Lollipop (her car seat was locked in my car) while I took Little Prince out to eat. When I explained that my car could be unlocked using just the key, he opened it, fixed the headlight and we all went out to eat :-)

The first place we tried seemed very short staffed, we saw lots of food sitting on the serving hatch for ages before a waiter/waitress served it. We also saw many tables with impatient looking diners!! When the greeter finally got round to letting us know that there would be at least a 10 minute wait to sit down, we decided to go somewhere else. The next place we tried was empty! As pointed out by Little Prince, loudly!! We were seated in moments and Little Prince even got to chose where we sat, which pleased him no end. He and Drama Teen sat together and coloured in the kids menu activity book. Princess Lollipop also wanted to colour, and she made a pretty good job of covering the page in "Dullers" :-)

Little Prince spent most of the time we were eating dashing back and forth to the toilets, I dread to think what he was up to!! Apart from a few incidents when he needed to be reminded to behave himself, the meal went pretty uneventfully and we all had a good time. When we had just about finished, Princess Lollipop demanded "Up out" of the highchair, Mr Messy took her and found she was drenched!! We must have forgotten to change her before coming out!! Poor soggy baby! Mr Messy took her straight out to the car, and put lots of tissues and cloths on her car seat before fastening her in. As soon as we got home I went to get her changed and cleaned up, Mr Messy went to find her a clean vest and babygrow, and Drama Teen took Little Prince to bed. Little Prince came down to give us all our night night kisses while I was still changing Princess Lollipop. Unfortunately he was there to witness her weeing all over the changing mat and herself!! He got hysterical giggles about this and will probably be talking about it for AGES!! Princess Lollipop was too sleepy to get her in the bath, so I just had to wash her as well as I could and get her in her babygrow, she was asleep moments later :-)
