It was lovely to see our friends and spend time in their company. We shared a meal with them, Little Prince calls the meals there "feasts" as all the food is laid out on the table and everyone serves themselves. Unlike at home where he is served his meals ready on his plate. He was overwhelmed by the fact that there were quite a few other visitors at C & S's house, and wanted to run back to the car and hide. Me and S persuaded him to play with the Lego in the corner of the dining room while he got himself comfortable with all the visitors. He calmed down and was ok within about half an hour or so :-)
Later in the afternoon C took Little Prince, Princess Lollipop and their youngest daughter out to collect eggs. After a long while we thought about sending a search party out for them!! Then a sodden footed Little Prince burst into the room!! He said he had somehow got stuck in a frozen puddle, which left his trousers, socks and trainers soaked!! S offered to put his trousers in the tumble dryer, while he sat warming up near the fire wrapped in a blanket drinking a cup of tea, and I managed to persuade him to eat something too. We had to set off for home when Little Prince's trousers were dry again, we wrapped him up in Mr Messy's coat in the car so he was warm and snuggly. Princess Lollipop fell asleep within minutes of setting off and stayed asleep through a "wee stop" at a services, but woke up at the next "wee stop" and was very grumpy! We turned her DVD player back on and she quietened down, well she stopped shouting and screaming at least!!
When we got home we got Little Prince straight to bed, well we tried but he was up and down for ages!! Princess Lollipop was another matter, she had had her sleep and wasn't interested in going to bed at all!! Mr Messy took her up so that I could write these blog posts, I haven't heard from either of them since so I presume they have both fallen asleep!!
