I had my car booked in for its MOT and dropped it off in the morning, the mechanic dropped me off at OUR shop, where Mr Messy had taken Princess Lollipop and Mrs LMS with him. I stayed at OUR shop with them until it was time to go and pick up Little Prince from school. I left Princess Lollipop with her Daddy and rushed home to pick up Little Prince's swimming bag, and then went round to school to collect him.

He had a great swimming lesson again, he is coming on so well at the moment. He is hugely improved at taking his shower and washing his hair after his lesson too. Before medication, he would tantrum and shout and make a huge fuss, and I almost had to hold him under the shower jet! Now he calmly shampoos his own hair and then rinses the soap off with no fuss whatsoever :-) I am so proud of him :-) We then went round to OUR shop, to see if the mechanic had called about my car - he hadn't :-( Neither me nor Mr Messy had his number on our mobiles, so I had to drive home with Mrs LMS and the littlies and find his number at home and ring him to see what was happening with my car. Apparently the MOT Test Centre had completed the Test, but forgotten to ring him until he checked with them! He was just on his way back to his own garage with my car. So then I called Mr Messy at OUR shop and said I could come and pick him up, he and Drama Teen were just having some chippie chips, so I waited a while and then went round to get him. Mr Messy dropped me off at the garage, where I was given the bad news - my car had failed its MOT :-( The worst was that it had two bald tyres!! I hadn't even realised!!

We had a quiet evening together watching TV. It was especially quiet as both littlies were in bed before 8pm!! We are so unused to Princess Lollipop going to sleep so early that by 9pm it felt like it must be midnight lol.
