Today was finally the day for Mr Messy and Mrs LMS (and Drama Teen who was modelling), they went out early for their Designer Bridal Wear shoot. Little Prince was also up and about before I was, and he was overjoyed when me and Princess Lollipop finally got up, as he said he was lonely :-( Poor little lad, I felt so guilty for not waking up earlier :-( Once everyone had eaten breakfast, Little Prince carried on playing on the Wii and I caught up with my emails and Princess Lollipop played with her toys.
Mrs LMS arrived home in the late morning to collect Princess Lollipop, as she was modelling in the Big Bridal Shoot too. Between us me and Mrs LMS got Princess Lollipop ready in her designer (and very pouffy) tutu, and sorted out the accessories she would need - wellies, sunglasses and a variety of hair pretties. Little Prince was pleased that he now had Mummy to himself, and decided he wanted me to help him play Lego Star Wars on the Wii.
At weekend I had received a message to say our new roman blinds were ready and could be fitted this week :-) When I rang the shop they said the fitters were in our village and could fit the blinds today!! Fantastic :-) Our current blinds are ones I made years ago, but the cords keep snapping and Mr Messy got fed up of fixing them, so its been a loooooong time since we've had blinds we could actually open!! The fitters arrived within an hour or so, and it only took them about half an hour to fit the blinds, they look great. I'd chosen a neutral fabric with wide horizontal stripes and they look even better than I thought they would. And if we decide to change the decor in the lounge, we'll just have to change the paint colour on the walls, and the neutral (and very expensive!) blinds can stay put :-)
Little Prince was devastated when the fitters arrived, as the window is next to the TV and we had to stop playing on the Wii. He sulked about this for ages and sat on the sofa moaning about "stupid curtains"!! Even when the fitters had left he still didn't cheer up for ages!!
It was quite late in the afternoon when everyone returned from the shoot, I'd expected them a lot earlier! Mr Messy said Princess Lollipop had been a star, and a real diva!! She'd been bossing everyone around and telling them when and how she would have her photo taken!! At the end she was telling Daddy that her legs were tired and needed to sleep!! She was very tired and very grumpy!! She and Little Prince played in the garden, I sorted out the sandpit and to our complete surprise and shock Princess Lollipop didn't mind putting her feet in the sand!! With her sensory issues (she hates walking on grass!) we were very worried about how she would cope with sand - but she loved it! She didn't love sharing with her big brother though, they bickered and fell out! Princess Lollipop kept smushing Little Prince's sand castles and he ws getting more and more frustrated with her! He came up with the idea of getting her to help him pat the bucket with him so it was "their" castle and that helped for a while. But in he end Princess Lollipop's tiredness got the better of her, and we had to bring them both in for their tea. Princess Lollipop was in bed not too long after that and we haven't heard a peep out of her since!!
