Last Week

Last week Mrs LMS was invited to an interview for a trade sales position with a bridal designer - her DREAM job. She rang me up when she received the email, and was literally bouncing on the phone, she was so excited. She has always loved "pretty dresses" - don't ask how many Prom Dresses she owns (even though she's only had 1 or 2 Proms!)!! They are all very pretty though :-) I hope her enthusiasm and obvious love of dresses shines through at her interview, and counts for more than her lack of experience, as she would LOVE this job, fingers crossed!!

Drama Teen got the results from her recent exams, which she says are "not too shabby" :-) She has also got closer to her friend S, and they are "sort of seeing each other." She seems so much happier and back to her normal bouncy self now, so I'm very relieved! Although her friend S's parents have told him that he is spending too much time with Drama Teen and not focussing on his school work (we feel the same about Drama Teen), so things will have to calm down a bit to allow them both to devote time to their studies too.

Because we are so proud of what Little Prince's teacher said about him, we bought him another copy of the second Harry Potter book (our original copy seems to have disappeared!). He has been reading it ever since and has almost finished it already!!

Princess Lollipop had a run of very disturbed nights, tiring out both me and her! I know she will eventually settle down and sleep consistently through the night, and not need to be next to me and Mr Messy, and we are willing to let her carry on sleeping with us until then - I just hope it happens one day! After a number of disturbed nights on the trot, I sometimes wonder if she'll ever sleep in her own room! She has also started to try and sing along to songs, which she mangles in typical toddler fashion :-) The "ABC" song has turned into the "ABCD Cup of Tea" song lol.
