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

in Today...

  • Yesterday
    we took baby on his trike to the pub for lunch and he was very excited and happy. But he got upset (rightly so) when our food came and we didn't get him anything to eat. 
  • Saturday, 1st August
    baby had a 3hr nap, and woke up refreshed and happy. We took him to lunch and then soft play at the garden centre and had great fun sliding down slides.
  • Friday, 31st July
    I made some OKRs at work, and feeling quite excited about them actually.
  • Thursday, 30th July
    a childhood friend found me on Facebook and brought back memories of those wild and idealistic days.
  • Wednesday, 29th July
    baby slept badly all night and woke up at 5:20am. Poor me. But he's very cute and been trying to stand up on his own quite well.
