After yet another disturbed night me and Princess Lollipop completely overslept this morning!! We were up way too late to get to Tiny School, which meant I didn't get my morning to myself and still haven't got Little Prince's under bed tent started!!!

Even with Princess Lollipop's "assistance" I managed to get a lot of jobs done round the house, frustratingly slowly, but at least they are done :-) Princess Lollipop hasn't stopped eating all day, I'm hoping that it might make a difference to her sleeping tonight, I desperately NEED a good night's sleep!!

Little Prince went to Tae Kwon Do straight from school and loved it. We then rushed to the chippie to get a quick tea, before dashing back to get him to Sports Fighting Tae Kwon Do at the Village Hall. The session is run by the same TKD instructor that runs the club at school, and in this one the children wear padding and helmets and actually kick each other - the main draw for Little Prince. He was quite nervous and overwhelmed when I dropped him off, but when I picked him up his instructor said he did really well. He'd started off quite timidly, but soon got into it, according to his instructor "he's got no fear"!!! The instructor also gave Little Prince a warning that if he found out that he'd been practicing his moves on his sisters then he would be immediately banned from the club - hopefully that will deter Little Prince!!

When I got back from dropping Little Prince off at Sport Fighting, Drama Teen went out on her first proper driving lesson. Her very first lesson was at a racing track in an Aston Martin, arranged by her Dad :-) She didn't seem nervous at all before her lesson and was quite pleased with herself when she got home :-) Worryingly she did admit that she finds it hard to concentrate on what her instructor is telling her, while also driving and lost concentration a number of times!!! I hope her instructor has good insurance lol!!

Little Prince went to bed as soon as he got home from his second session of Tae Kwon Do, it was already after 8pm and he has school tomorrow morning!! Princess Lollipop fell asleep very soon afterwards, despite being desperate to stay awake and see her Daddy, who was late home as he was on a photo shoot.

I watched "Suits" a programme that has been advertised for weeks now and I've been really looking forward to :-) This episode was a bit slow, as they were introducing all the characters, however it was still fun and I enjoyed it :-) Princess Lollipop woke up just as "Suits" was ending and came downstairs, she was very tired and went back to sleep very quickly and is now laid beside me snoring loudly lol.
