Me and Princess Lollipop had an extremely slow start to the day, after a VERY disturbed night! Neither of us was keen on the idea of waking up at all, so we had a slow gentle quiet morning :-) Well apart from when I was doing Princess Lollipop's hair in the bath, but she didn't make as much fuss as usual, probably because doing the conditioning every other day is keeping the tangles at bay.

After lunch we had to go and pick Mr LMS up from work. He'd meant to go to the gym straight from work, but due to sleeping through his alarm had overslept! He didn't seem too bothered by that fact, so he's probably still not feeling 100%. He was miffed that when he saw the Doctor he hadn't been prescribed any medication, and that the Doctor refused to give him sleeping pills and said (like we all keep telling him) that they are bad for him!!

Once we'd dropped him off at home, me and Princess Lollipop went round to visit Daddy at OUR shop. He said he'd keep Princess Lollipop with him, as Little Prince has his swimming lesson after school. I came home and had just enough time to have a quick snack before going to pick Little Prince up. We then had a lovely time playing Lego Harry Potter on the Wii before it was time to go to his swimming lesson. We don't often get time where its just the two of us, and it was lovely spending that one on one time with him :-) Moments to treasure :-)

Little Prince's swimming teacher had him practising his butterfly stroke, and he is coming on really well, his teacher was having to jog up the side of the pool to keep up with him. She is very very pleased with his progress and attitude and loves teaching him :-) I asked her about when Princess Lollipop could start lessons, and she said we could go back to group lessons, Little Prince would be in Top Group with her, and Princess Lollipop would be in the Beginners Group with 3 or 4 other little ones and the instructor in the water with them. We are going to try it out after the next half term, as Princess Lollipop will be 3 by then!! I can't believe she'll be THREE next!!! I'm not sure how/if she will cope with being in a swimming lesson, but we can try it and see how she gets on :-)

In the evening we managed to get both littlies to sleep at a reasonable time and me and Mr Messy were going to watch one of our Christmas present DVDs together - however, we couldn't get it to play on any of the devices!! Mr Messy hasn't been feeling very well this week, and needed cheering up so I told him to watch it on his laptop with his headphones, so he's doing that and all I can hear is the occasional laughter from him - glad he's enjoying it and he looks happier :-)

Drama Teen went round to Mr and Mrs LMS's house from college, and they are bringing her back at some point. She wanted Mr LMS to teach her some karate, which I didn't know was her thing, but she says it is :-) Hope they are having a good time and that Little Prince doesn't find out because he is desperately missing Mr and Mrs LMS at the moment!
