Birthday Party

On Saturday morning me, LMS, Little Prince and Princess Lollipop set off to Baby Sister's daughter's birthday party.  On the way we collected my Mum, I dropped everyone off handed out the birthday presents and cards (it has been other nieces/nephews birthdays since I last saw everyone) chatted for a few minutes and then set off to the Train Station to pick up Drama Teen and Boyfriend.  Little Prince was struggling to cope with the noise and number of strangers at the party, so I took him with me for a calm down and chill out.

Back at the party I spent time chatting to family and grabbing cuddles from little nieces and nephews when I could get away with it!  I don't get to see them very often, so they aren't sure about giving out hugs to this almost stranger :-(  Little Prince played with his similar age cousin for a while and then his newly teenage niece let him play on her iPod and he was in heaven :-)  He is really missing his own iPod since he dropped it and the screen smashed, we can't let him play with it as he will inevitably pick at the shards of glass and hurt himself!  Too soon it was time to take Drama Teen and Boyfriend back to the Train Station, so they could return to University, they don't go to the same University but Boyfriend was visiting Drama Teen this weekend.  They wanted me to take them to the Chippie that me and Mr Messy used to love when we lived in that town, but much to their disappointment it was closed until after their train had left, so I had to drop them straight back at the Station.

Back at the Party once again, we all said our good byes and I took Mum home, Little Prince and Princess Lollipop had a snack and play at Grandma and Grandad's house before we set off home again.  Me and LMS decided we would visit the Chippie for tea, before setting off on our long drive.  It was just as good as I remembered, well it would be as me and Drama Teen visited it just the other week!!  We sat in the car eating and had a mild panic when Princess Lollipop decided she wanted the toilet, we managed to sort that potential crisis out and finish our tea.  The drive was long and LOUD, my plan that the Littlies would eat and then fall asleep in the dark car didn't work!  Oh well!

I had a splitting headache by the time we were nearing home, and completely missed our junction and didn't even notice until the signs started to not make sense!!  Luckily I noticed in time for it to be a small detour rather than a crisis and we made it home not that much later than we would have been.
