Last Week

Some people are never satisfied, and despite doing a mega huge blog just for her, I've been told by Whatshername's Mum to blog more regularly!! So I'll try :-)

Last week me, Mrs LMS and Drama Teen went to the local college, to be models for the hairdressing department. My friend S is one of the students and persuaded us to come along, as the class was desperate for models to try and complete their final assignments before their course finishes. S insisted on doing my hair, and two of the other students did Mrs LMS and Drama Teen. Mrs LMS just had a cut and restyle, and was very happy with the results. Drama Teen wanted her hair trimmed and the blue colour taking out, she's already tried hair dye removal products twice and is still pale blue! However, it would take bleaching to get the colour out completely and the students aren't a high enough level to be able to do that. Drama Teen was very frustrated, but had her hair trimmed anyway. We had Princess Lollipop with us too, and she got quite upset that she wasn't having her hair done too. So one of the students sat her on a chair and put some conditioning lotion on her hair and brushed a few curls. Princess Lollipop was in girlie heaven - she's definitely going to love things like pamper sessions spas etc when she old enough!! As we weren't quite finished another of the students took Princess Lollipop on a walk, they took the towels to the laundry and had an explore - for some reason each time Princess Lollipop came back she had some chocolate!! I've no idea who she charmed it out of lol. Drama Teen was quite indignant about this afterwards, and told me off for letting complete strangers walk off with our baby - whoops!! I was just glad that the clingiest girl in the world was happy to be with someone apart from very close family!! I'm starting to wonder how she will cope starting nursery school next Easter!?!?

I carried on with my sorting out, it took a whole lot longer than I ever imagined, but the results are so much more impressive than when I have tried previously! The lounge is now completely sorted out and clutter free, although I need Mr Messy to help me sort out the TV corner, and get all the cables tidied neatly away, rather than the spaghetti they currently are!! That will be a job for this weekend, whether he likes it or not!!

The weather hasn't been very good so we haven't been able to play at the park on the way home from school very much, and evenings cooped up inside are much harder. Hopefully once the garden is cleared and safe, this will be less of a problem. I don't mind the children playing out in the rain, so long as I can stay inside cosy and dry!!!

Mr Messy had a very busy weekend, with OUR shop and an event shoot on Saturday evening. He is also sorting out the back room at OUR shop and changing it from a storage room into a studio. Although he is a lifestyle photographer, who shoots on location and in natural light, he has been getting a number of requests for portfolio photographs and a studio would be very useful for that.
