In the morning Princess Lollipop had her 2 1/2 year Developmental Check-Up with the Health Visitor. As expected she was at, or mostly exceeding, her developmental milestones :-) Her speech especially is very advanced, which is to be expected when she has so many people to talk to and with!! After the Check-Up I had to go to the opticians for a contact lens check up. After the trouble I had with the last set of lenses, this new set was fantastic :-) The optician agreed and my lenses have now been ordered and will be posted directly to me, glad that's all sorted out now! I've hated having to wear my glasses!! Much too vain for that!!

After lunch me, Mr Messy, Little Prince and Princess Lollipop set off on our long drive to see our friends for the weekend. Our friends have kindly (or madly!!!) invited lots of families with children adopted from Ethiopia to stay with them for the weekend and I'm really looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones, and cooing over all the babies and children of course :-)

The journey seemed to take forever, but was actually a very pleasant, non-motorway drive :-) We had to stop a few times for "wee breaks" for both Little Prince and Princess Lollipop! The first few stops, despite her obvious need, Princess Lollipop refused point blank to use the travel potty. It was only when she was much too desperate to do anything else that she agreed to use it. And that was the one and ONLY time she agreed to use it!! The most expensive "spend a penny" EVER!!!

We checked in at our lovely B&B and then nipped over to our friends to spend a couple of hours with them, before returning to the B&B for the night.
