I'm working hard on it offline, and it will be uploaded soon. It's so empty and ugly at the moment because I accidentally deleted the entire codebase and database a year ago. It'll be shiny soon, I promise. x Victoria

My sister gave me some sarong fabric for my birthday, and I've made a dress from it, following the pattern from the Japanese sewing book, Stylish Dress Book (vol 1), Dress E.

in Today...

  • Yesterday
    we took Owen to the cinema to watch Pete's Dragon.
  • Saturday, 27th August
    we want to Witney for shopping, and Owen fell asleep on our way back in the car, and I waited in the car with him in the thunderstorm. We later watched Kungfu Panda on DVD and had dim sum and Chinese stir-fry for dinner.
  • Friday, 26th August
    I finally sorted out some paper work.
  • Thursday, 25th August
    we watched the Great British Bakeoff. And then was feeling unwell again.
  • Wednesday, 24th August
    I had migraine and went to bed right after putting Owen to bed.

Just watched
