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
    Peter took baby out to a music class for the first time without me.
  • Monday, 15th September
    baby enjoyed his Baby Sensory class, and later grandparents came to visit.
  • Sunday, 14th September
    we ate Tandoori all day (we cooked too much).
  • Saturday, 13th September
    I felt an overwhelming love for baby. Funny hormones or maybe he really is the cutest sweetest baby ever?
  • Friday, 12th September
    I took baby out to the fields to listen to the wind and birds (and remembered why I loved the countryside) and after that I swept the porch carrying baby in a carrier.
