Today is my first day home with Matilda without G, who has gone back to work today. I have to admit I was a bit nervous about being home all day with her by myself. Not knowing if she was going to have a big crying fit and I wouldn't know what to do with her. But so far we have had a really good day and it's already 3.15!
This morning we went for a drive to do some banking for the cafe and a quick visit to Spotlight. Luckily for me Matilda loves going for drives in the car and either sits there quietly looking around her or falls asleep. In Spotlight I found this cute wooden pencil box with coloured pencils and a sharpener. I am not sure why I need this but I love how it looks and it cost $4, so I had to have it. I am partial to a bit of colouring in still, and Matilda is nearly old enough, right? :)
When we got home we hung out a bit in the nice QLD winter sun while I hung out the washing, then she had a bit of a play with our jungle friends.
And right now Matilda is having a little nap in her cot and I spose I should be as well, but there is so much other stuff (housework) to do! Matilda didn't seem to like being in her cot much but a friend of ours told us to try putting her to sleep in the cot on top of a t-shirt that I'd been wearing so she could still smell her mum and it seems to be working really well. We've also discovered at night time that she likes being in a sleeping bag more than just clothes, I don't know if it's because its warmer or just cause she can move her legs around a bit more but it's working well, so who cares why.
