Mr Messy and Drama Teen went over to OUR shop early this morning, as Mr Messy wanted to take a small filing cabinet from his office at home to use at the shop. If he gets there early he has much more chance of parking right outside the shop, so he doesn't have to walk too far with the heavy filing cabinet. As they had left early he was gone before me and Princess Lollipop came downstairs, Little Prince was already downstairs waiting for us.

We are stuck at home today due to my broken car, I hope we can find enough to do to keep the littlies from getting too bored and fractious! I've got to upset Princess Lollipop soon and take her for her bath, as she didn't get her hair conditioned yesterday as I had to go to the garage with my car. I did get Princess Lollipop's hair done, but a little later than I intended as the littlies got distracted by playing bubbles :-) Little Prince would blow them and then Princess Lollipop would try to catch them all :-)

Little Prince and Princess Lollipop played together on and off all afternoon. However, at one point Little Prince got very frustrated and angry with Princess Lollipop when she wouldn't be quiet so he could hear his programme on the TV, he pushed her hard and she fell over and banged herself on the playpen/barrier we use to close off part of the lounge for him to play with his small toys. She cried and cried, and Little Prince was almost as upset as she was, I think he shocked himself at how hard he had pushed his sister and how easily he had hurt her :-( He ran off out of the room, and when he came back Princess Lollipop ran away from him, scared - which upset Little Prince SOOOOO much. He was very remorseful and very upset to think that his precious little sister was now scared of him. When Princess Lollipop saw how sad he was she ran over to give him a hug and kiss, and he was so thankful that she still loved him. I had a stern talk with him about how he was much bigger than his sister and how he had to try and always remember to be gentle with her. He promised he would try, and I think he will remember the shock and hurt he felt for a long time and won't do anything like that again, till he forgets!

Drama Teen got the bus to her Boyfriend's town during the afternoon, so Mr Messy arrived home from OUR shop on his own. He was very tired and has hurt his arm somehow, he doesn't even know what he's done to it! Drama Teen texted later in the evening to say that she and Boyfriend were going to the cinema and then for a meal, so it sounds like they may have sorted out their differences :-) Princess Lollipop fell asleep just before Mr Messy arrived home, and had about an hour's nap, hopefully she will still sleep tonight!! While she was sleeping Mr Messy and Little Prince shared a pizza, but it took a lot of encouragement to get Little Prince to eat any of his pizza as he just kept repeating he wasn't hungry. His appetite has seemed back to normal more or less these last few days, so this was quite worrying, especially as he'd refused to eat any lunch either :-(

While Mr Messy was out collecting Drama Teen from the restaurant, I got Princess Lollipop ready for bed, although she shows no sign whatsoever of being tired! Little Prince is also still downstairs as Mr Messy had promised that they would have a camp out in the lounge, but now Mr Messy has a sore arm he has postponed the camp out :-( Little Prince is trying to persuade me to sleep downstairs with him instead, and so far I haven't been able to come up with a way of saying no without upsetting Little Prince!! Urgh!! I hate camping, ever since sleeping in leaky Girl Guide tents I just can't stand it!!!
