Sunny Start to the Hols

The weather has been very warm and sunny for the past couple of days.  Little Prince and Princess Lollipop have been making the most of it playing out in the garden, its lovely sitting listening to them playing and laughing together.  Well until the bickering, fighting and falling out starts!!  Its not quite so enjoyable having to referee the pair of them, so Little Prince being able to play out in the village now, can give Princess Lollipop and me a break.  However, on Monday Little Prince spoilt it for himself, by taking some money from my purse without permission, and when caught out was immediately grounded - I'm not sure who it punished most, him or me!!  Initially he was very sorry and I managed to get him to co-operate with some tidying up, his mood soon disintegrated and he became stroppy, loud and very unco-operative.  Despite the temptation to send him out to play to give myself a break, I stuck to my guns and kept him grounded.  Bedtime sometimes seems to take a long time to arrive!!

Tuesday started with the Littlies enjoying playing in the garden together, without too much falling out!!  After lunch Little Prince's friend J came over and both boys went out to the Village Park to play.  This left me trying to console a heart broken Princess Lollipop, she wanted to play "Wiv De BIG boys" and kept trying to show me how big she was, to prove that she was big enough to play out with them!  Sorry cutie pie, you just aren't that big!!  We played jigsaws for a while, and then cuddled on the sofa, she was "out of sorts" in one of those non specific ways!  However, as the afternoon wore on it became more obvious she had tummy troubles, the noxious smells she was regularly producing were almost poisonous!!  Luckily she managed to get rid of the "blockage" before tea, and perked up considerably after that, although she was obviously very tired.

Both Littlies were settled and asleep in bed by about 8pm so me and Mr Messy had our tea in peace and quiet, listening to the birds twittering in the garden outside :-)
