This is actually todays post. A variable day – lots of temper tantrums this morning, and not just dd 😉 I set her up painting this morning, hoping that I was going to get a few minutes to catch up on some emails while she was going, but she wanted me to be involved. I think that was fair on her part, but I wasn’t really co-operating.
Then this afternoon we did sewing. I’ve got patterns for felt shoes for baby keepsakes which I’m going to be making myself, but I thought we’d try a set for dd’s doll. We started with me sewing and her watching and within a minute she wanted to try, then with diminishing assistance, she blanket stitched right around the sole piece. She didn’t want to do the upper – only did a couple of stitches – but she was thrilled with the end result once I’d put it all together.
Then the sun came out so we did make it into the garden for a little while – I hung out the washing and then chased dd round the garden for a while with much laughter and general hilarity. I think I need to make sure that we get some exercise every day – I don’t know how we’re going to do that in the winter, but I’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.
Dd’s friends mum called this evening to ask if she’s going to nursery tomorrow, and if she is does she want to stay over. I asked her, and was quite surprised that she turned it down – she usually loves staying there. Right at the moment though she is so negative about nursery that even the idea of staying with her friends didn’t tempt her.
So I guess I need to work out what we’re going to do tomorrow, because it looks like we’ll be spending it together again! We’ve planned a trip to hobbycraft with friends, and I’m thinking about a low temperature glue glun (but only in general terms as I don’t really have much idea what one is!).
