Mr Messy went downstairs with the littlies while I got ready, and by the time I got down they'd had their breakfast. He was a bit chilly as he'd had to go out and move his car and open the garden gates, to let the oil delivery man in, and he only had his dressing gown on!! Brrrr! He was a bit cross with Drama Teen for not getting out of bed and getting her own camera gear ready, meaning he had to do both his and hers! She finally got ready with only enough time to get herself a quick sandwich before they had to leave to get to the wedding they were photographing. The wedding itself was at the Church across the road from OUR shop, so it wasn't far to drive. They don't expect to be back till 9.30pm or later, so its just me and the littlies today.
We had a snacky lunch and I allowed the littlies to have quite a few more biscuits than they'd normally be allowed, after all it is still Christmas :-) Then Princess Lollipop had her nap, I'm certainly not going through all that palaver getting her to sleep again tonight!! While she slept me and Little Prince watched Polar Express, I've never seen it before and it was lovely :-) It would have been even better if it hadn't been on a channel that interrupts the films with adverts!!! Very annoying! When that finished I found the original Karate Kid on a different channel, but Little Prince didn't want to watch it, even though I assured him he would like it! So we watched a bit of Playhouse Disney for Princess Lollipop, who had woken up. Then the littlies had half an hour or so of racing up and down the lounge, until Little Prince got too silly and I had to persuade him to do something else. He's now playing on Warioware Smooth Moves on the Wii, he always chooses the active games on this so it will help use up some energy and (fingers crossed!) calm him down a little.
While Little Prince is safely occupied with the Wii, I took Princess Lollipop in the kitchen and we put on a frozen pizza for the littlies to eat. Then she helped me sort the washing, well she didn't really lol. She played with the freezer magnets while I sorted out the dry washing in the tumble dryer, and put the wet washing in there to dry.
Little Prince is now reading in bed, and Princess Lollipop is settling down and she could (fingers firmly crossed!!!) be asleep soon too!! I'll have time to get some tidying up done!! There are Christmas toys that haven't found places to live all over the place!!
