Monday Visitors

Mr Messy went to OUR shop with Drama Teen, and Mrs LMS drove herself to work, so it was just me and the Littlies in the morning. Then at lunchtime Mr Messy brought Drama Teen and her Boyfriend home, and Mrs LMS finished work at lunchtime, drove over to the Train Station and picked up Baby Sis and her Baby S :-)

Baby Sis and Baby S had come to see us this time :-) Little Prince and Princess Lollipop were thrilled to see one of their baby cousins again :-) Little Prince was thrilled that Baby S watched whatever he did, and when he sat next to her she would hold onto him :-) Princess Lollipop wasn't too pleased that Baby S kept trying to grab her hair though!

When it was both baby girl's naptime, Baby Sis got her baby to sleep in her buggy and I took my baby Princess Lollipop to her cot. She fell asleep pretty quickly, the trouble is so did I!! I was so embarrassed, I don't get to see Baby Sis that often and didn't want to be upstairs fast asleep for her visit!! Princess Lollipop wasn't asleep too much longer, and was fairly grumpy as she hadn't had enough sleep! When both babies had woken up we took them in the garden Baby S had her first experience of sand, and found she didn't like how it tastes!! Then she, Princess Lollipop and Baby Sis went on the trampoline, I'm not sure Baby S know what was happening to her, but she seemed to like it lol.

All too soon it was time for Baby Sis to go home :-( None of us wanted her to go, as we were enjoying hugging Baby S too much! Mr Messy was just getting ready to take Baby Sis to the station when on the spur of the moment he decided to drive her all the way home instead. I liked that idea as I had loads of outgrown clothes to give to her again, I ran upstairs to sort them out ready to go. I had started a bag to send already, I just had to sort out the rest of the clothes, as Princess Lollipop generally has a LOT of clothes it took me quite a while!! I filled a bin liner to overflowing, and still haven't gone through the pyjamas and the tights!!

Later that evening when Little Prince and Princess Lollipop were tucked up safely in bed, me, Drama Teen and her Boyfriend decided to tackle some of the clutter in the kitchen. Well to be completely honest it was Boyfriend's idea, we just tagged along!! Me and Drama Teen tried to work out how to use the new steam cleaner, to get the shower sorted out, while Boyfriend sorted through the mountain of receipts and coupons that were piled on the kitchen worktop. Boyfriend had the easier job, we couldn't get the steam cleaner to work properly at all!!! We finally worked out we needed the pack of "small tools" which we couldn't find anywhere, so we gave up!!

Just after Boyfriend had left our house on his 'Ped Drama Teen got a phone call, one of those that starts "I don't want to worry you, but..." He'd come of his 'Ped just as he was leaving the village!! Luckily he wasn't hurt, well he had ripped his jeans and scraped his knee! But he was very worried about the state of his beloved 'Ped, (Evie) :-( He'd already rung his Mum and his Step Dad was on his way to pick him up, so all me and Drama Teen could do was sit at home and worry!! Then we got a phone call from Mr Messy, he'd come across the stranded Boyfriend on his way home and he and Boyfriend's Step Dad were bringing Boyfriend back here. They drove one in front of Boyfriend on his damaged 'Ped and one behind him, both with their hazard lights flashing as the 'Ped's headlight had been damaged. Boyfriend was fairly shaken when he got here, so we got him a cup of tea as we assessed the damage to the 'Ped. Mr Messy (who used to ride a motorbike years ago) said it was only superficial damage and would be easily fixed, much to Boyfriend's relief :-) The 'Ped stayed here for a sleepover, and Boyfriend and his Dad will be round tomorrow to pick it up.
