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

    Owen was very happy again. I spent all evening trying to decide between 2 phones to no avail.
  • Wednesday, 27th April
    Owen topped up the challenge by waking up at 6am, tiring us out further.
  • Tuesday, 26th April
    Owen didn't want to nap again, and was being very difficult all day, throwing tantrums.
  • Monday, 25th April
    I took Owen to the toddler group, which he was super excited about. At one point he thought he had lost me and cried. At another point I thought I had lost him and panicked. He didn't nap in the afternoon, and so I was knackered!
