Mr Messy and Mrs LMS were in OUR shop, and I was at home with Drama Teen and the littlies. Once we were all ready to go, which always takes a LOT longer than I anticipate, we went down to the shop to drop Drama Teen off there. Mr Messy took Little Prince to the local Sports Shop to buy him some new trainers. Mr Messy has just bought a pair from there and Little Prince was admiring them so Mr Messy decided to get Little Prince some too. Little Prince was a bit apprehensive as he still can't tie shoe laces, and didn't think the shop would have any velcro fastening ones. Mr Messy assured him he didn't have to worry as these would be trainers for at home and while he was practising tying his laces we would be around to help him if he needed it. Little Prince was very pleased with his trainers that are very similar to Daddy's, although he did say that Daddy's were cooler (which obviously pleased Mr Messy lol). I then left Princess Lollipop at OUR shop with everyone, and took Little Prince with me to run some errands.
First stop was the HUGE home decor/crafts/garden centre shop. I needed some picture frames, which we found very quickly and wanted to have a look for a cushion cover to replace one in the lounge that had split. We had no luck finding a replacement cushion cover, but Little Prince found the "Alien Egg" thing that he was desperate to spend his money on. Its a gooey alien, contained in a plastic egg filled with more goo - I can't even bring myself to touch the things but Little Prince loves them!! Little Prince was hungry so we called in at the cafe where he devoured a bacon sandwich and slush drink. Then we drove round to the next shop, where Mr Messy had sent us to look for an outdoor table like his friend K has outside her Bistro. I found a large metal and glass lighthouse, that will look fantastic in OUR shop window's new "beach/seaside" themed display, but no table. Then we had to call at the supermarket to pick up nappies and some other bits and bobs, before heading off to Argos to pick up the Steam Cleaner I had reserved. We were running later than I had intended (too much browsing on my part) so when Mr Messy rang to see when we would be back to pick Princess Lollipop up and found we would be ages, he decided to take her home himself. Not ideal as her only car seat was in my car, with me!! But its only 4 miles and he had both big girls sit with her in the back. She told me later about "Drive car, not seat bells. It FUNNY" I'm very strict about using car seats, so it won't be happening again!!!
Anyway once we'd picked up the Steam Cleaner, Little Prince decided he was desperate for the toilet. The only option was the nearby fast food restaurant, and he decided he was hungry too, so we ate there as it was past his tea time, and we were over half an hour from home. He enjoyed his meal and ate the lot, it makes such a big difference to his appetite when he isn't on his ADHD medication!
In the evening I got some more sorting out done, staying up till stupid o'clock to get it finished! Which obviously I regretted in the morning when Princess Lollipop woke up, and we were soon after joined by Little Prince. They didn't take the hint when I hid under the covers and I had to get up lol.
