Mutterings of a Fool

The Gallery – phone photos

Last Sunday was the lady of the manors first day back at work, which meant it was also one of the few days that I have been totally on my own with Matilda. It was a long day as well with the lady of the manor leaving at 6.30am and getting back at 9pm. In my head it was going to be a day of fun, of bonding with the wee girl and having some time to interact with her.

In reality it was a day where she wouldn’t sleep, not in her cot, not in her push chair no way sireee. There were tears (me and her), tantrums, muttered swear words and a VERY early bath and bedtime. But we did have some fun and I thought I’d capture a few of those moments here on my phone for the return of the Gallery:


  1. She looks as good as gold there!

  2. Awww, so great to capture and hold on to the good bits of each day 🙂 These are lovely pics. I find it too depressing to ‘relive’ bad moments of my day on my blog – so my blog probably reads as a ‘on a high all the time/happy ever after/perfect world’ – of course it’s not! It’s just so much more relaxing to right about the happy bits – hence why I called it ‘Catching the Magic’.

    Hope you & your family all had a great first Christmas with your precious lass and wish you all a very happy 2012 🙂

  3. I love the one in the basket! I have one like that of me 34 years ago. Great to record the nice bits of the day.

  4. Oh my, that brings back memories, the ‘just wouldn’t sleep’ days! *shudders*
    Lovely photos

  5. She is so incredibly cute!

  6. You do exaggerate! She’s an angel everyone can see that 🙂

  7. Looks like she had a great time. She’s also a real cutie!

  8. look at those photos and you’d think the day was perfect. Good luck with the next day on your own with her …… she has you sussed doesn’t she!

  9. Looks like a great time was had, discounting the no sleeping! She reminds me of my daughter, looks like an absolute angel but…

  10. Heartbreakingly cute little girl you’ve got there.
