Rest of Sunday

I managed to get a super quick shower, without the littlies arguing or killing each other, result :-) Once we were all completely ready we drove over to OUR shop, filled the boot up with rubbish/recycling and got rid of it at the tip. We then drove over to an indoor play centre, booked Little Prince's party and dropped lucky with a special offer of £2 off per child :-) Sorted :-) We then stayed to play for a while, that stretched into three hours!! And no it didn't tire Little Prince out!! Nothing ever does lol.

I chatted to a Dad from Somalia, who's little girl looked so like Princess Lollipop it was like a glimpse into the future! The two little girls played together with a garage and cars lol. Eventually it was time for me to drag the littlies out and get home, three hours in a place like that is long enough for anyone!! Not for the littlies though, I had to bribe them with chocolate to get them in the car!! Princess Lollipop and the little Somalian girl gave each other a hug before we left, it was so sweet :-) The Dad says he goes there pretty often, so hopefully the girls will get to play together again sometime.

On the drive home Princess Lollipop fell asleep and was NOT happy to wake up when we parked outside our house! She is now sat next to me on the sofa trying desperately to go back to sleep. The trouble is her Mean Mummy keeps poking or tickling her to wake her up again!! If she sleeps now she'll never go to bed at a reasonable time!!

After tea, Little Prince helped me put all his things on his new desk, he also showed me where he wanted all his pictures to go on the "cupboard" part - he then sat there for ages sharpening his pencils and admiring his desk :-) I think he likes the idea of having a more grown up desk, and I certainly like the idea of having somewhere for him to keep all of his technology bits and pieces (camera, DS, iPod etc) together and safe from Princess Lollipop's fiddly fingers! And having the doors on the desk will make the dining room appear tidy, even when Little Prince has made a mess on his desk :-)

Little Prince was a bit late getting to bed, so he didn't have time for any reading, which annoyed him! He came down with "headaches" and "can't sleeps" for ages afterwards, I think the last time was after 11pm!! Mr Messy took Princess Lollipop to bed and I had a relaxing evening watching TV and catching up on messages.
